PCWorld: Tomb Raider Review

Straying from the series' roots, the latest Tomb Raider is a gritty, disturbing take on the action-adventure genre. It's beautifully crafted, both technically and narratively, but most of all, it's just plain fun.

Tomb Raider tells the story of Lara Croft and the crew of the Endurance, an expedition vessel on the search for adventure. They get what they're looking for when the Endurance is caught in a storm and crashes on an island filled with terrible people doing terrible things, or something like that. All that’s really made clear is that they want to hurt Lara.

This sense of impending doom can be felt throughout the entire game, which is a non-stop series of unfortunate events piling on top of each other until it almost doesn’t make sense—and then it doesn't. The tale of Tomb Raider might not be the most believable, but it’s the first Tomb Raider game that actually treats Lara like a human. (PC, PS3, Tomb Raider, Xbox 360) 4.5/5

So we lose another platforming-puzzle game and get just another fighting-action game :(

Just play the game for what it is.... not for what you think it should be.

Ok, so where can I find any new platforming-puzzle game like old Tomb Raider? They've all been Americanized (shifting focus to shooting people instead of problem-solving).

Like I said before. Play the game for what it is.

In other words, if it's more action than puzzle, so be it. Play it for what it is. Stop getting stuck in the past.

You could always play God of War to have a puzzle game.
