It's a shame most games don't have demos for you to try these days.


Indeed. But what I've seen in videos looks great. Almost all of you praise this game gameplay and story. Even Conan O'Brian in his Clueless Gamer segment enjoyed it.

I got to check that out.

I wanted to finally check it out today but could not. Going to try and check it out tomorrow night or Tuesday night.

I believe I'm most of the way through the story. The game reminds me a lot of Resident Evil 4.

Can you go back and get all the collectables once you have finished the game?

I Redbox'd the game and played through once on Normal, finished with 72% overall, probably 12-15 hours of play with some extra exploration. Fantastic game. I was happily shocked, found myself actually reacting to the death animations, narrative, liking and disliking certain characters. The puzzles are fun, from what I've played. Think it was one of the stronger solo campaigns I've played in a while. Multi-player seemed alright, the 3 rounds I played. Overall 9/10 for #s people. Opinion: RENT IT

Finally playing it, just took a little break, only 40 minutes in if that, definitely like the whole presentation and vibe. I was already prepared for the fact I would be facing a lot of QTE's initially, so can see once I get past them how the game will really open up.

Any pointers on which skills seem best to unlock? I already spent my 1st point on her vision or whatever it is called, figured it was best to be able to see more items.

Really, REALLY am enjoying it so far, and I am only maybe 90 minutes in
Spoiler


I am well aware of the irony when saying the game is a lot like Uncharted, since once could argue Uncharted got its inspiration from this series, but let's face it, even if Uncharted was inspired by this series, when it came out Uncharted was the evolution of what Tomb Raider should have been, and as such, it was the better game. Well it looks as if the series has finally caught up with Uncharted, but in fact kept some things that make it uniquely Tomb Raider. When you play the game, you can just tell a whole lot of love and thought was put behind everything.

So yeah, considering Uncharted has been one of if not my favorite series of this current (almost past) generation, saying it is like Uncharted but its own is about as high as a compliment that I can pay towards the game itself.

I am currently renting it from Gamefly, and I am seriously considering the Keep It Now option to purchase it, just so I can take my time with it and really explore everything it has to offer.

Tomb Raider is officially back.

I've never even played an Uncharted game for obvious reasons. I suppose I will on the PS4.

Definitely enjoying this one, but damn...you'd think it'd stop raining once a year or so.
