Sunday 17th March 2013 I’ve completed Tomb Raider and tried out the multiplayer mode. This rebooted Tomb Raider is a top class game – everything feels like it was designed to bring the best gaming experience possible and it definitely hit the spot for me!
Tomb Raider offers a great story, intensive battles and challenging puzzles – this is easily the best adventure game I’ve played. Upon completion, I am considering playing a second time on a higher difficulty setting. My favourite part of this game is Lara’s adventure (all of it), I’ve enjoyed developing the innocent and naive Lara into a battle hardened adventurer. The dangers she encounters on her journey were very challenging to overcome but at the end felt rewarding and exciting.
The multiplayer was different to other third person shooters and can get some getting used to for me, but I do like how investing time in multiplayer will reward you with better gear and skills.
From the quality of the game, it’s apparent the developers did strive for perfection – everything just feels well thought out and be the way it should be. I am very intrigued about a sequel, I love this game because of the survivor theme and development of Lara, but I’m wondering how they will improve upon what they have already. They’ve set a very high bar for themselves. I do hope they keep the same voice actors though as they helped tremendously to bring the story to life.
I loved the whole experience and look forward to more games trying to bring the perfect experience to gamers. Thanks Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix for this astonishing game.
