Was the Tomb Raider reboot really revolutionary?

2013 saw the reboot of the iconic Tomb Raider franchise, one which delved into the origins of Lara Croft. Whilst the title received near universal praise, Thumbsticks writer James Sweeting believes its achievements may have been overstated. (PS3, PS4, Tomb Raider, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

calling it revolutionary... is hyperbole... but it did most things right/perfect.....

I don't remember anyone saying the game is revolutionary. That said the game was pretty awesome, at least to me.

Uh, who said it was revolutionary, exactly? The only sentiment I get is that the game was well-done.

Improved on the gameplay of the old ones.

No, but it was a fantastic game. They could have worked a little harder on the narrative, but the game play and pacing were wonderful. Plus, it's freaking gorgeous! Even on the PS3 and 360, it's a good looking game. On PS4/XBO/PC, it's one of the best looking games on the market.

I preferred the previous tombraider games personally. This one was pretty much just a 3rd person shooter
