TOMB RAIDER 2013
Platforms: Xbox 360/PC/PS3/X1/PS4/PC
Game supports English, Spanish, Portuguese, and Netherland text.
Audio support English, Spanish, Russian(only some), Japanese(only some).
Supports 1 player on story mode.
Played in Spanish.
Note: I will only review the Story mode since I’m not in to the multiplayer of shooters.
Story: Lara and her friends set sail to find the island knows as Yamatai, but the ship she is on all of a sudden gets destroyed and everyone escapes. Eventually everyone arrives at a mysteries island, but there is something odd about the place and Lara is going to find out what it is.
Good or bad Story?: The story is told through cut scenes and finding documents. The cut scenes move the plot forward while the documents can reveal more of the island, friends, and some of the inhabitants. This makes for a very deep story that will make you want to find everything you can about the island. Good.
Graphics: This is 1 of the best looking games out there, from the characters to the mountains its stunning.
Audio: The Spanish actors do a great job of bringing the characters to life especially Lara who is voiced by Jill Valentine from RE:Revelations. Also some of the characters will speak Russian and Japanese cause of their nationality or something like that.
Good: Game play consist of stealth, taking cover, shooting, plat forming, puzzles, exploring, upgrading, boss fights, and collecting. You can either be stealthy or go guns blazing, also you can do both if you want the choice is yours and its good the game allows both types of play. Cover in the game is done by moving Lara to a hard surface just by moving the LS stick. It works really well taking cover and moving from cover without the need of pressing a button. To reach certain areas you will have to solve puzzles and at times use plat forming to solve the puzzle. Also some of the puzzles are tombs, but are optional. You can explore the island at will to find collectibles and tombs or just look at the scenery. There are a few boss fights and they are done well. To upgrade in the game you must fight and collect some items, you can upgrade skills and weapons, but each has their own point system. This is 1 of the best 3rd person shooters that exist that has variety and not just shoot this and that only.
Bad: I found nothing bad about this game.
Overall: This is the first TR game I played and found it to be a really great experience that refreshes the shooter genre. A must have game of 2013.
Likes: Graphics, story, audio, cover system, boss fights, collectibles, exploring, puzzles, stealth, and plat forming.
Wish list: Sequel.
Score: 5/5 Awesome
