We Asked You For Your Feedback On Tomb Raider
Over the week we’ve asked–on Twitter and Facebook–what you guys think of the latest Tomb Raider. Our review published on launch day, as we had quite a few days to play the game. Unfortunately, that’s not always possible for everyone.
With that, we’ve given you guys some time to play the game and give us a bit of feedback. Here’s what we got from Twitter and Facebook when we asked: “Have any of you played Tomb Raider yet? What are your first impressions of the game?”

Jason Absmeier: got the xbox version. it’s different, but interesting. crysis 3 still rocks my box at the moment
Ryan Bailey: It’s amazing! Except.. “Oh, I killed one guy and I felt so bad, but I’m perfectly okay with killing ten more a few minutes later”
Albert Botha: Epic cant wait to see how this game will unfold.
Zhameer Hashim: Love it
@Sons_O_Liberty: #TombRaider is something very very special…..@tombraider I’m still in awe, well shock and awe more like it.
@CaptainGadgetHD: I absolutely love Tomb Raider!Little bit different but still Tomb Raider. But I hate the multiplayer, awful maps. An afterthought?
Charl Den Dulk: Played about 3 hours of Tomb Raider last night and I must say having played most of the games in the franchise this one would be the best one of the bunch and I am thoroughly enjoying it at the moment. I am glad Crystal Dynamics took this route they really did try something different with this reboot, I was pretty sceptical about this game but I will gladly eat some humble pie now.
It really does feel like you are marooned on an Island were everyone is insane except you, and you get that lost type of “vibe” from your surroundings.
The atmosphere is amazing, it’s dark, even the lighter parts in the game aren’t that uplifting. Not to mention the tremendous lighting effects.
Gameplay is tight and responsive, the cover system itself is easy to understand and uses, eliminating the chunkiness of taking cover manually each time. Climbing and jumping has been improved and is very natural.
The puzzle element is not as strong in the this game as in some of the others, some people might view this as a negative but I enjoy it no more breaking the pace of the game when getting stuck at a puzzle you cannot figure out.
While the character of Lara is done brilliantly those in the background are a little sketchy, with the exclusion of Roth who I really enjoyed.
The Multiplayer is terrible, why even tack this on when they could have improved the single player game even more with the resources they wasted on it. Stick to the single player mode, that’s where the meat of the game is.
The transformation from the archaeologist Lara into the survivor and killer Lara is a big leap, the first guy she kills makes her gag. The next moment she goes Rambo on everyone without twitching even an eye.
The story is engaging and entertaining, but at times predictable.
On a side note this game is terribly brutal, when you screw up you die in the most terribly ways. And during the first hour of the game there is about a dozen “holy shit that must have hurt like a son of a bitch moments in the game.” Definitely a 8.5 out of 10 for now.
