Tomb Raider game review

I’ve been playing the Tomb Raider game for my PS3.
Here’s my review:
The games starts out with Lara Croft and the Endurance crew in a storm that leaves them stranded on a uncharted island.
They soon find out they’re not alone,and it’s up to Lara Croft to save the day.

I have to admit I was never a fan of the games (I only played 1 TR game for the PS1 and didn’t like it)
So,I was curious about this reboot by Square Enix (I’m a fan of their Final Fantasy games)

To my surprise,I really enjoy playing the game.
While I said I didn’t like the games,I always like Lara Croft.
This is pretty much a origin story for Ms.Croft,We see how she became a badass,gun-toting tomb raider (not by choice,but just to survive)
They didn’t change her appearance all that much (which is nice)
I like this version of Lara Croft than past versions.

One thing I didn’t like about the TR games was that controls were just god awful.
They fixed that problem,her moves feel more natural.
The camera angles were fixed here as well (I never had a single issue with the camera)

Weapons in the game are great too.
The bow & arrow is by far the best weapon in the game (you’re going to use that more than any other weapon)

The map is huge (you’re going to wind up exploring to find relics,gps,challenges,and,documents)

The only downside to the game is the multiplayer (it feels like an afterthought)

Overall this is the first Tomb Raider game I enjoy playing.
If you’re new to the franchise,this is a good starting point.

4 out of 5 for me.
