Yeah, they definitely add a few more on with exclusive reviews Flash. They seemed pretty stingy with the other reviews though, Dead Space 3 got 73%, Aliens got 62% (probably fair) and Metal Gear Rising got 75% with Crysis 3 getting 85%

I absolutely adore tomb raider but have completely ignored this game due to the series usual pattern of getting me excited and then kneeing me in the b*****ks when I actually play the game, but a lot of good things are being said about this. Ive pre-ordered this for £28 (the money I got for Colonial Marines coincidentally) so if this turns out to be a good game, rather than a usual TR turd, it could be an utter bargain!

Haven't played a TR game since the third instalment - which was nails hard. This reboot sounds really promising and I really like the idea of creating stuff out of salvage.

Tempted.

It's a completely different game to the one I thought it would be when it was first announced, but it still looks great. I hope the other reviews are as positive as this one. I'm still a little disappointed at how short it is though. I was expecting 20 hours, minimum. Hopefully it will be that long if you want to see and do absolutely everything, which I will be doing!

You could be in luck then, they say that in the review about the 20 hours for everything.

Hate Tomb Raider.
Super Mario 64 rip off.
Well not rip off exactly but you know what I meam.
A definite Uncharted rip off though.

It just wouldn't be a proper discussion about Tomb Raider without someone mentioning the words 'Uncharted' and 'rip-off' :lol:

But it's troo though.
Uncharted developed the TR idea and refined it and from the videos I've seen, TR is copying it.
As for my SM64 reference, the original TR was a 3D game with relative freedom of movement.
SM64 made that form of game so much better with gorgeous graphics and more intelligent gameplay.
A bit like Uncharted has done with TR.
See a pattern here, flasho?
:P

But just about every game ever made is a rip-off of another game in the genre. I just don't know why Tomb Raider (and Uncharted every time a new one gets released) keeps getting singled out all the time.

Because Tomb Raider is a loada shite and Uncharted ain't.
Hope this helps.
