Customer Review of the Week: Tomb Raider

When Tomb Raider was facing a reboot like many other games fans were scared that it would damage its reputation but it has been saved with this epic remake.

This new Tomb Raider stars an inexperienced Lara Croft, which then crafts her into the hardened survivor she has become today; the story to this game is that Lara and her crew along with her mentor are shipwrecked on the island of Yamatai and all is not as it seems on the island. This is when the game grabs you and pulls you into the horrors and hostile inhabitants that await Lara and her friends on this island. As soon as Lara makes it to the beach she is kidnapped and starts fighting for survival, with you feeling every knock and punishment Lara takes and makes you want her to keep fighting and survive

The game takes the best bits from games like Uncharted to deliver a thrilling game from start to finish; when Lara starts out she is scared and alone and must start to learn the survival skills needed to stay alive and the game slowly gives you the equipment to do this. You find your bow and start to hunt animals like deer and rabbits and gather resources needed to upgrade her skills like hunting, gun upgrades and fighting which are represented like RPG skill trees which add a welcome addition to the game.

The areas of the game are hubs which you can explore at your own pace at any time to find hidden items like relics and notes left by the islands people. There are also hidden tombs to find and explore which have their own puzzles to solve but these are quite easy and most times require you to burn something.

The games environments show off the games fantastic graphics from forest areas to burning buildings to old war bunkers and shanty towns which feature some fantastic action and thrilling moments like crossing a crumbling bridge which makes you feel on edge.

The controls feel tight and responsive and are easy to master from climbing cliff faces to countering enemies with deadly finishing moves. This game is a must buy for any fans of a great story and action games though the games multiplayer is a miss for this game just feels added on at the last moment

Words by Kratos 20.


- Great story

This review has made me want to play the game, rather than pick it up because y'know Tomb Raider... I'm still waiting for the inevitable PS+ download though.
