Tomb Raider Review | GameSpot

When adventurer extraordinaire Lara Croft raided her first tomb back in 1996, she brought with her an exhilarating feeling of isolation and discovery. Over the years, Lara has continued to venture into parts unknown, taking dark turns and frequently tangling with the supernatural as the series evolved alongside the burgeoning third-person action adventure genre. The gameplay of this series reboot takes a few cues from a current titan of the genre--Nathan Drake and the Uncharted series--but don't let that familiarity put you off. This origin story is a terrific adventure that balances moments of quiet exploration with plenty of rip-roaring action to keep you enthralled from start to finish. (PS3, Tomb Raider, Xbox 360) 8.5/10

This is better reboot than DMC reboot.Anyway, To be honest, I never doubted this game for a second. Crystal Dynamics are brilliant devs, and It's good to seem them handle this franchise so well. I be picking this up first thing tomorrow morning, and I'm going to enjoy it to bits.

You already know this game is better even though it has yet to be released *sigh* I can smell the bias in you and it sort of smells like watermelon >.>

Anyway, I kind of wanted to get this game. The trailers look intense!!!

Better reboot, how so? Game isn't even out yet, you have yet to play it and probably never played DMC. You are going by scores! Well if that's the case then, shouldn't you be praising DMC? That game scored high with all the reviewers and was actually a fantastic game! I can't wait for the new Tomb Raider myself, but comon that was just a dumb remark man.

Strong score. A score that increases my confidence in the title. This title could have ended up being shocking. I hardly expect it to be the title it once was, but that is okay and understandable. Games that score around the 8 mark usually spark the best discussions in the online communities. Can't wait to give it a try.

WHOA, just got back from Easton Mall in Ohio, didn't think the review embargo was lifted today. 87 metacritic across 27 reviews. Congrats SE and CD.

I'm sure the game is good but its kinda biased that GS and IGN got women to review the game. Probally boosted the score up a point at least.

Why would women give it a better score than men?
MagneticDeath  +   862d ago
Because there is almost zero games where you get to play as a women unless they are are overly sexualized. The whole women power thing of *new* Laura being powerless and then rising as a hero.

actually its vice versa

letting the game be reviewed by woman takes out the extra points in the review for laras breasts !!
MagneticDeath  +   862d ago
She is not as scantily clad and big breasted as she was in the past.

Can't wait. only one more week now. I remember playing this at the Euro gamer Expo last year. Was a lot of fun, really immersive.

not sure if this is just Uncharted 3.5 but it still looks really good.
