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.

Tomb_Raider_Definitive_EditionThere are many game on my have to play list.  One is Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition.  This game was first released back in 2013 on PS3 and Xbox 360 just called Tomb Raider.   The game was a reboot of the long run series.  Can still remember playing the first on on the PlayStation and be amazed at awesome it was.  Missed out playing this new one.  Then in January of 2015 the game was re-released as Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition for PS4 and Xbox One.  Was playing other games at the time.  Said to myself then the game gets cheaper will buy a copy.  The weekend of (April 22 –25) the PlayStation Store had a flash sale.  This was one of the games.  It was going for $8.74 and the regular price is $30.00.  So couldn’t past that up.

Need A New Game

NfSMostWanted.jpgLooking into getting a new video game, now that I have played the hell out of Far Cry 3.  The hard part deciding what one to get.  Haven’t played a racing game in a while.  Thought about getting Need For Speed Most Wanted.   Another game that looks good, and heard lots of good things is Dishonored.   Then there is the new Tomb Raider.  That one looks very good. Leaning towards Need for Speed.  Played the demo of that and like it.   How ever Tomb Raider looks like a fun story to play.  Heard the controls are very good as well.  Might just have to flip a coin or some thing to decide.
