Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 14, 2016 by getbent57

Tomb_Raider_Definitive_Edition.jpgHave finished the main play though of Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition.  So time for a review.  There is lots to like about this game.  It looks great and fun to play.  This game series is known for this environment puzzles.  All the ones I played (there are some that are optional) were very well made.  They are a challenging but solvable.  Only had to look up help with one.  The combat is pretty good as well.  There is some stealth but must of the fights to into gun battles.  The story was not that interesting.  Everyone was a stereotype.  All the plot points were very predictable.  That being said it still pulled you forward.

There is lots to like about this game.  Am glad I played it.  Was nice too see that they pulled of an great reboot of the Tomb Raider series.  The biggest let down is the camera movement.  It sways back and forth as you run.  The fast you go the worsts it gets.  It would give me a headache at times.  Would have to stop playing.  It is not a very long game.  Sure you can go back and find the items you missed and the like.  Did a bit of that.  Just cant see myself trying to get it all.   Did have fun minus the headaches.

Bastion

BastionBack near the end of January (2016) Sony had a flash sale on the PlayStation Store.  One of the games I bought was Bastion.   Have heard get things about this game and seen some video.  Got around to playing it a few night back.  Have to say it is pretty great.  Sure it has many game play elements we all have played lots of times before.   The big differences is the voice over.  There is a guy narrating what is going on in the world, what you are doing and gives you hints on what to do next.  It is pretty cool.   Have only played a few levels so far.  Were were all good.  It was well worth the money so far.
