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

I agree. It was very fun, but I have a problem with the button mashing sequences. I'm at the end of the game and I can't button mash like you robot fingered people do. My hands just aren't that fast. How didyou beat the giant samuri guy with all the other guys coming at you at the same time? I keep missing and getting killed.

Fully upgraded shotgun and use your dodge ability.

yeah at that part i just ran far away as possible and shotgunned his archers, then dodged him and shotgunned like a maniac.......you can dodge directly under his murder club iirc

I have all that but the guy won't let me kill him no matter what. I'm supposed to be able to kill him with the axe but Lara won't swing the axe when the prompt on the screen says to swing the axe. I was just on for about 45 minutes trying to kill him and I ran out of ammo and had him on his knees about 30 mtimes but the game won't let me kill him no matter what I do. They just chase me down and finally I just let him kill me because I don't know what else to do.

Are you pressing F close to him when he's on his knees? Maybe it's E, but I think it's F.

I agree

It was so good... that I actually bothered to find all of the collectibles for the first time in 25+ years of gaming... just to experience the world for a little bit longer.

No, it's F. The problem is that I was trying to anticipate the action and I was pressing it too soon. You have to wait like a second before pressing the key or it will not register or something. I tried again and this time I was a little less aggressive and I waited for a second and it finally killed the guy. But now the game is over and I hate starting again. I got 97% on my first run through. There are a few things that I can't get, like that XP case on top of the big container in the water on the beach, how do you get to that? And there are a few other things I can't get, like the GPS on the rocks surrounded by water. How do you get that one, too.
