After preloading and starting the game when it was released, the game would not launch. It turns out the Direct3D error failure to launch was due the enabled "Exclusive Full Screen" setting. Once disabled, I ran the game in Ultimate graphics mode.

Everything... was what I wanted from a Tomb Raider reboot. The TressFX hair is excellent, and the lighting and voice acting is excellent at well. But after 30 minutes of playing, CRASH! Booted back to Windows 8 Desktop.

Crashes occur on computers, so I just relaunched and didn't think anything about it. Then again, the same crash occured twice more in the next 30 minutes. I got worried. Searched online and it turns out that all GTX 600 series cards are crashing in Tomb Raider.

Wonderful game from the hour I've played, but highly disappointing that we're gonna have to wait for a patch. Despite this, the game looks and feels great. I've been playing Tomb Raider since the first one came out in stellar SVGA. This definitely gives old fans an amazing reward for sticking with our perpetual number one virtual girlfriend through the good and bad times.

Apparently this crash is from an Nvidia driver issue which is being worked on right now as opposed from the publisher. Also, the additional videos you can download from Steam are currently not available yet.

Still, a solid release if you're not playing an a GTX 600 series. People have claimed these crashes can be avoided by disabling Tessalation and Exclusive Full Screen. I simply, refuse to turn off
Tessalation, it just looks too good not to run it with. I will wait for the patch...

UPDATE:

As of the latest Tomb Raider patch and Nvidia BETA drivers (GeForce 314.21 beta) everything works perfectly.

So, at first I was uninterested in this game because I've never played the series or really thought about it. After reading reviews and seeing gameplay media I decided I'd give it a try. My first impressions have been very good, I'm enjoying the game. I would particularly praise the realistic animations (running, jumping, climbing) and Lara's character. While other games often make situations such as the one depicted in the game cheesy with poor voice acting and unrealistic scripting, Tomb Raider does a good job of convincing you that Lara is saying/doing what someone in her situation might actually say/do. So far I have enjoyed the story, which is supplemented by Lara's periodic journal entries and notes written by her colleagues (with whom she is shipwrecked) found around the island.

Tomb Raider's graphics are beautiful, and TressFx is a very interesting feature. It makes Lara's hair look great, but my video card (GTX 660) sadly struggles too much with it and I have to disable it or play at 20, maybe 30 at max fps (I understand this does not happen on AMD cards and may be fixed by Nvidia drivers?) The gameplay, while not incredibly innovative, is well done and entertaining. Sneaking around the thugs who seek to capture/kill Lara and taking them out silently with the bow from behind cover is a particularly gratifying "ha, got you" experience. The RPG elements (xp, leveling up skills for combat and foraging) and weapon upgrades are a nice touch. Another plus would probably be the fairly open world that is presented in the game, and the variety of non-story areas to explore.

5.0 out of 5 stars I feel like I've survived March 8, 2013
Platform for Display:PC Download
Firstly, I'm not very good at reviews, so forgive me if this isn't as organized as others.

I just finished this game, and I feel like I've actually survived an adventure on an island. Not many games can make me feel like the main character is supposed to be feeling.

First and most obviously are the graphics. This game looks beautiful on my fairly decent PC. My monitor only goes up to 1600x900 and it already looks great. I'm kind of scared to see how it looks in 1080p whenever I get a new monitor.

There is a thing called "tressFX" which pretty much turns her hair from one big chunk into individual strands; it looks alright, but it takes down my FPS by about 20 just from that one setting, so I leave it off. There's also something about it that's very distracting during gameplay. Other than that, this game even at medium settings looks wonderful.

Gameplay is great. I can tell they worked really hard to fix all the things fans have been complaining about for like... 15+ years. It has none of the movement or camera problems from previous games and it's easy to tell they rebuilt it from the ground up with fans in mind. Everything moves fluidly from one obstacle to the next and I couldn't really tell where one animation ended and the other began (granted, I wasn't looking either).

There are zip lines everywhere. Eventually I had to ask myself, "Who the hell would put these here?" Because sometimes they are in the most random out-of-the-way places!

Gun play is pretty good, though I played with an XBox controller and those tend to be pretty inaccurate for shooting (plus I'm pretty inaccurate anyway :]]).
