First Tomb Raider review arrives, Are you getting it?

Post by Killswitchmad on Sat 23 Feb 2013 - 22:12

Tomb Raider has received its first review, courtesy of this month’s issue of GamesMaster.

Crystal Dynamics’ latest earned a 90% score. The magazine had high praise for Tomb Raider’s visuals – the title was given a 95% rating in the category.

Players can look forward to 10-15 hours for the main story, though GamesMaster notes that it’ll take 20 to fully explore the island.

The magazine also enjoyed the “vivid” hubs and final third of the game “with its spectacular bombast”. GamesMaster wished Tomb Raider included more side tombs, but the ones present in the game are a joy to discover. For those wondering: there aren’t many quick time events.

GamesMaster sums up:

“Sitting back exhausted we were left with just one question dribbling forth from our gaping jaws. How on earth are they going to top this in the sequel? Because of one thing there can be no doubt. Lara is back.”

Look out for a whole slew of Tomb Raider reviews early next week. Square Enix will be ending the game’s embargo on Monday – over a week before the game launches.


So who's getting this? The multiplayer actually looks quite interesting

I thought the demo was a little underwhelming tbh, it played a lot like Drakes (no bad thing) but it didnt really show much of the game really.

Glad its turned out well though as Lara is long overdue a high quality game. I will stick it on my LF list

IMO this is possibly the best reboot of a series I've played and easily the best game so far this year.
