Tomb Raider (Single Player) Review | Gamersyndrome

"I was pleasantly surprised by how fully fleshed out Lara really is as a character – insomuch as she actually genuinely seems like a real person – and how artfully the complexity of her personality and motivations is conveyed. This game, unlike many others, doesn’t condescendingly assume that you’re a simpleton incapable of intuiting how a character is feeling from their dialogue, facial expressions and body language. Thankfully, Lara Croft is no longer the expressionless polygonal model she once was, she now benefits from sophisticated facial animation which allows for the provision of subtle cues as to her reaction to something or her general emotional state.

When this emotional insight is crudely presented to you via a barrage of patronizing soliloquies conveniently and unambiguously explaining a character’s precise feelings and thoughts, you do start to think of the on-screen characters as merely shallow husks utilizing robotic mimicry of human behavior." (PC, PS3, Tomb Raider, Xbox 360) 8/10
