Lara Croft: A famous explorer once said, that the extraordinary is in what we do, not who we are. I'd finally set out to make my mark; to find adventure. But instead adventure found me. In our darkest moments, when life flashes before us, we find something; Something that keeps us going. Something that pushes us.

Lara is now young, dumb, and full of ____. Yep, I said it.
7 February 2014 | by See all my reviews

I played the Definitive Edition on the PS4. It crashed on me during a cut-scene, corrupting my file and now my progress is set back to zero percent. Be prepared for that possibility. I'm not going to let the get in the way of a review though.

The combat was very smooth, the graphics were fantastic (other than the shaky cut-scene camera), exploring was kind of fun (seeing as all the paths connected, but everything else was an Easter egg hunt), the puzzles were not impressive at all (specially for the tombs), and the story was very weak with the characters being unbelievable. "This is Lara's first adventure in an act of survival," but it turns out this is your typical cheesy action game with lots of explosions and some crying so they can call it 'Character Depth.' The objectives are cliché; "Go fetch this, go fetch that. You'll have to go to the ___________ to turn on the _______, in that abandoned ___________." And then I thought, "Why? Why should I send Lara there? How sure is this person that it will work? We don't know what else or who else could be there? It could be an ambush." How does a character that has never before been to the story's location suddenly know where to go? Or if there is equipment there, let alone if it works properly? There is a lot of this contrived junk in the story.

When the "What if" objectives don't prove to be logical or significant enough, then you're convinced the character is a moron who just does things because someone else tells them to and that it is the only way to achieve it. Ironically enough, she continues to say as she is about to waltz into a death trap, "Oh my god, this is so stupid." And I'm thinking, "Yes, you are, Lara." I spent the entire game saying, "Nobody does that." In a environment of survival, you take the most sure-fire approach to conflicts. How am I supposed to believe some 19 yr-old college girl just so happens to get stranded in the wild only to surpass the most insurmountable odds and dangers with no prior survival experience? The use of 'deus ex machina' solutions to conflicts were pretty awful too. "Oh my god, this is it. How is Lara ever going to get out of this one?!" Oh, no worries, there is a grenade launcher that happened to fall at her feet. Triumph ensues. Come on... really? In conclusion, as pretty as it is, that is all it is. It's a pretty game; a pretty game with a pretty female for fan-boys to marvel over and fill their fantasies with. If this game wasn't full of idiotic decision-making found in a slasher horror flick, I might have enjoyed it more ...not to mention the game crash. I always appreciate unstable games; they always remind me of my precious time and then I remind sellers by returning them. It's bittersweet, really.
