Tomb Raider


Now THAT was a pleasant surprise. This game more than delivered for me and puts Gears Of War Judgement to shame. First off, Tomb Raider's graphics are phenomenal! Breathtaking! Gorgeous! Love the gameplay mechanics and the environment. But what made this a nice way to spend some time gaming was in how long the campaign took to complete. I don't know exactly how many hours it took to get through it, but it's definitely 4 times longer than GOWJ, which sucked as far as getting bang for you buck out of it. There is no way a AAA game like that should be charging $60 for a game that you can complete in less than 10 hours.

To me, it felt like TR was a good 15 - 20 hours. I'm sure it's far less than that, but I feel like I got my money's worth and that was on Casual Mode. I still get to replay the game on Hard which would make it even longer to complete. If there is one thing I don't like. it's the quick time events which is basically on-screen prompts for button mashing. Other than that minor quibble, I'd give this game 4 stars out of 5 easily. I'm not going to bother with MP. It looks dumb, so I won't waste my time trying it out.

Along with the campaign play for TR, there are lots of challenging puzzle's to figure out when you go cave/tomb dwelling. I'm sure most people can knock them out pretty easily, but I feel a sense of accomplishment figuring them out all on my own with no help whatsoever. I think I have maybe 2-3 Tombs left to find and solve. So, the game is still on-going for me at the moment.
