To all those curious, Tomb Raider is the origin story of the famous heroine Lara Croft. Instead the sort of one-dimensional, large chested woman, we meet a young, vulnerable girl who finds herself fighting for her life. This game is the evolution of the killer that we all know. First, I would like to mention how they really turned Lara into a perfect mix between sexy and brave. It’s really epic.
The story is also amazing. As the gamer, we fight wolves, hunt deer and defend ourselves against heartless men who want nothing more than to kill you and your friends. Armed with a bow, it’s your job to protect the ones you care about. The other characters are pretty good in this, they really offer support and make you want to save them. Sometimes supporting characters give you no reason to want to save them, but that really isn’t the case here.
The graphics are refreshing. They’re not the best in the world, but they are still very good. The character models and the environment are strong, but not perfect for a 2013 video game. There is a bit of clipping, but nothing that takes away from the game. As far as length is concerned, the game took about three days to beat, but I played a lot in those three days. It will probably take an even longer time if you want to 100% it. If I have time, I might 100% the game, but that depend on how bored I get and how many games/movies/books I need to play/watch/read. That’s a lot of options. Anyways, I’m rambling.
Overall, the game is great and might stand as one of the best games of the year.
