Summary

Tomb Raider is a fantastic addition to the Croft catalog and a fine rebirth of a classic character. With a great story, sumptuous visuals and meaty combat, this is one game you can't afford to miss out on in 2013.

We like

  • Lara Croft's characterization

We dislike

  • Frequent combat sequences can get a little tiring
  • Some minor camera issues and visual glitches
