    Default Tomb Raider

    I'm feeling kind of accomplished here now that I've beaten the game and felt like doing a sum up of what it had to offer. Just saying the game was epiclly beautiful (at least on all maxed out settings it was) On a few upsides of what I saw on the game were a nice amount of visual options, such as shadows ,water ,hair ,and even reflections ,and if you needed to you could have them but not turn them all the way off. Now that lead me to something else though on the preset quality sets the highest ultra setting still was not the highest xD ,under custom you could make them go higher. Of course I set it to the highest difficulty so I wouldn't skip and hop joyfully through the game, but that didn't stop me from completing it in under 24 hours total of 3 sittings (for me). I felt the game did alot of things for you like crouching and after some upgrades it seemed even the bow and pistol were 1-2 hitting everything even with out head shots. and the bosses where never hard. and the ending left it way open for another game. over all I really liked it though felt me self getting into the story and everything.

    Here is an in-game screen shot i took near the end of the game.
    (note im not a great game reviewer and I haven't done many but i still found this fun to do.)

    Any questions ask.

    (sorry in advance if im not to make these kinds of posts i thought under the PC gaming thread it would be fine.

    LOL I didnt just now buy it. I meant when I did buy ita while ago. Would have been easier to see members say it sucked instead of going looking for it. Not like i spent a lot on it. Still sucked.

    I got AC3 for free, good thing I didn't buy it.

    Tomb Raider was engrossing with the story and fresh approach from previous TR games. I did like it. There were some issues and things I didn't like, but overall I found it quite enjoyable. And I kept thinking, "This would make a great movie." So that's a good endorsement right there, as I kept wanting more to see and play in the game, it was entertaining. Game mechanics were a bit repetitive but overall I thought it was a solid game.

    i agree that story would make a good TR movie. I think it can be done but it's gotta have the right person to play Lara Croft and the right director.

    This is great to hear. I haven't played a Tomb Raider game in many years but picked this one up because it seemed like it would be incredible.
