OXCGN’s Tomb Raider Review

OXCGN:

"The latest entry into the franchise, simply titled Tomb Raider, aims to reboot the ailing series, detailing the beginnings of the young Lara Croft.

And it succeeds.

Developer Crystal Dynamics, along with publisher Square Enix, have injected the once popular Tomb Raider series with new life.

Tomb Raider successfully reappropriates the franchise for a new generation of gamers thanks to updated mechanics, along with two very important things: a believable main character and a well-told story." (PC, PS3, Tomb Raider, Xbox 360) 9/10

It's good they decided to look at what they were doing and see if there was a way to add depth to the series.

Looks awesome.

Story-driven narrative can really help interest in a game.

I'm glad Lara is more than a set of pretty...bazingas now.

Such a great example of how to revamp a tired series.

Excited for the Tomb Raider future.

I hope they focus on more complex puzzles in the future. The ones present were good for what they were, but relatively straightforward. But in way they were better than the "Pull a switch and get to the other side of the room before times runs out." kinda deal.

The combat and gameplay evolution, atmostphere/tone, and revision of Lara herself are all fantastic, though. There's even a semi-open design to several of the environments giving a decent amount of room to explore. I'm very satisfied with this game.

I beat the game today with a 78% . I'm going to keep playing until I get 100% . I don't usually go back to a game after I beat it. This game is so fun that I have no problem going back to it.

I want this game so bad, but it has to wait, I hope I can get it pretty soon

Heads up for those looking to buy Tomb Raider in the US. Target will have a B2get1 free sales on all videogames from March 17-23. Save some money and grab Tomb Raider, God of War, and Gears of War Judgment; a great deal for 3 AAA games.
