Tomb Raider: The Definitive Edition Review – Would have to be hands down the best reboot to date and a true visual enhancement. I have enjoyed many things from this game and really have to give a round of applause to the Development team at Crystal Dynamics. The moment Tomb Raider starts, the gamer is introduced to the characters, there personalities and the relationship one has with one another. Already giving the player an idea of which characters one may like and the characters that already seems sketchy. The game then takes the player right into the action with a horrible storm which leaves the team shipwrecked and stranded on a mysterious island. Truly epic and intense! Tomb Raider has the gamer immersed with the world, the weather effects and the audio which does an amazing job supporting that.
Tomb Raider truly had me feeling the never ending pain and the challenges Lara Croft has faced throughout the story. Experiencing how Lara Croft learns to come over her fears and how she becomes a warrior to survive – is epic. The island itself is beautiful and fun trying to figure out routes to take and explore, as you continue gaining additional gear the player is able to explore more. The combat mechanics is great, providing the player different yet creative play styles from straight up action with various weapon choice, to stealth which can creep up on the enemies to quietly assassinate or use the traps provided within the sorroundings. Tomb Raider over all is an amazing adventuraus game, was hard for me to put down! Cannot wait to see the future of this reboot will bring.
