VGI: Review: Tomb Raider: "Even for all its faults, Tomb Raider is a game worth playing."

"Lara Croft is the face of a generation. When the first Tomb Raider launched in 1996, the w**k-fantasy aimed at pre-pubescent male gamers, became an icon for females the world over. Here was a main character who wasn’t a trophy for plumbers and turtles to battle over. She was an independent woman who kicked ass and didn’t need a supporting male character to tell her what to do. She stood on her own two feet and defied the usual tropes that came with being a lead character in an action game. The 90s were an era of ‘Girl Power,’ and Miss Croft was gaming’s answer to the Spice Girls."

I agree. I've only played about an hour and a half of the game so far, but I've been seriously blown away by this game. So far, it is in no way the best game ever made. And in fact, everything Tomb Raider tries to do, another game seems to do better. For that reason, I would never give it a perfect mark.

But the fact is that no other developer managed to combine into a single game so much of what has made this last generation so good! It might not be the most innovative title out there, but it's certainly an early, very strong competitor for some Game of the Year awards!

CoD casuals should love it. It's not a Tomb Raider game so to me it's not worth playing.

doesn't control like a tank so you're not going to play it?

Anyone with a ps3/360 should give this game a chance. Just because its not like the old games doesn't mean it sucks. If you liked Uncharted you will like this. I don't own a 360 so I can't say what game on Xbox would be similar to this.

Wrong. I like Uncharted but this "Tomb Raider" is mediocre and plays nothing like a REAL Tomb Raider game. It's a shooter fest where you build XP throughout the game and the multiplayer is like playing a third person CoD.

I like the Battlefield franchise but it doesn't mean I'm going to like the CoD games just because the games both are in first-person with guns. This "Tomb Raider" doesn't even play like Uncharted. It tries to clone it but it still fails. It's like that other clone called Unearthed: Trail of Ibn Battuta. Just because I like Uncharted doesn't mean I'd like playing that garbage.
