Tomb Raider Review | GameCloud

Tomb Raider is an origin story that was designed to make you care, and with an outstanding performance from Camilla Luddington and the rest of the cast, it certainly appears as if Crystal Dynamics achieved what they set out to do. It is unfortunate that the game design never fully embraces the survival theme, and it remains slightly unsettling the way Lara moves so quickly from the emotional distress of her first kill into the headshot happy gameplay that the game delivers so well. It is worth acknowledging that this point is briefly addressed later in the game, which does help to improve upon the mixed translation between narrative and gameplay. However, as a whole the game still comes together exceptionally well to deliver an emotional story that is certainly worthy of the Croft legacy. (PC, PS3, Tomb Raider, Xbox 360) 9/10
