I just finished the latest version of Tomb Raider. It tells the origin story of Lara Croft and its the best adventure yet. I’ve been playing Tomb Raider games since they started in 1995 and played every one of them. This is the best one, both story wise, graphics and play ability, The only problem with this game is sometimes the controls in key scenes are a extremely unforgiving, but fortunately that doesn’t happen too often.
The story is kind of a Lost type adventure where Lara and some friends are shipwrecked on a island full of strange and mysterious happenings. Old military installations are side by side with ancient ruins and there are lots of crazy homicidal folk on the island trying to kill our hero, though why they’re doing it is a mystery for most of the game. The action scenes are really great and the game is extreme fast paced.
Crystal Dynamics made this one, they redesigned the whole game from ground up so Lara can do a lot more than she ever could and its way more realistic. If you’re a fan of the Batman Arkham games it uses a similar open world type set up but huge island. Think Far Cry meets Lost Meets Arkham City. Over all its very fresh and a lot of expected stuff happens.
