I really enjoyed the game and think it was a brilliant reboot. It will be interesting to see where it goes next.

It was one of those games that was greater than the sum of its parts. It didn't have the best graphics, story or boss battles. The enemy all had the same AI. Some of the voice acting was shoddy and Lara's friends were a horribly clichéd bunch - but it was still awesome from start to finish.

Tomb Raider is a reboot done well, and would like to see how the series goes on...

DmC is a reboot from hell, and would like it die as soon as possible...
