just beat tomb raider, gotta say it was an amazing experience
this game has guaranteed itself a sequel, truly an amazing game. they made a character that you connect with, not just a digital puppet but a person that when theyre hit with enemy fire you get mad at yourself for letting it happen.
the gameplay was terrific, it gives you chances to study your enemy and make smart attacks, there's never a moment when you just get bored or want to rest, the game constantly makes you want to continue.
i was lucky with graphics and never had one oddball glitch so i cranked it to the max( my 2 gtx 570s were going full throttle though) i will admit that sometimes i stopped just to look at the environment, i also killed myself twice cause i was oogling the world at the wrong moments, but there are many moments when you just think "omg thats friggin insane, how'd they do that!"
is the game perfect? no, i have 2 crazy small opinons. 1) although its my fave weapon....the bow is a bit overpowered, damage wise and because i considered it a "swiss army bow" cause it does everything.....extremely well, you almost feel like a spellcaster towards the endgame flinging fire-y doom at everyone:)
2) there is no new game+, this is just something i wish was there, the new dmc had it and when i beat that i turned around and went back for seconds, imo i think any game that lets you build up skills should give you the option to play again unleashed, its just a guaranteed replay pretty much for some, they could've still had the game gradually give you new weapons but just have them unlocked at max until you get a story based upgrade, have a skill based'maxed normal pistol....then play up til u get your skill max tac pistol.
i bought 3 copies of this game, me my kid bro and my friends b-day, we all beat it within a few hrs of each other, everyone should play this, its why games were made......crazy fun
