The game install is 20Gb and the update required at launch is 7 GB. It took some time as I eagerly waited to play the game.
Controls are nice and smooth and if you’ve ever played Tomb Raider will be familiar to you.
I’m playing on 65 inch 4K LG and it is like watching a movie. The fluidity of this game is amazing.
The only down side so far is there are a lot of cut scenes. Not quite worth losing a star over, but pretty dang close.
This game is brilliant. The 4k is incredible and breathtaking.The HDR really makes the clouors and the environments really stand out and pop. The voice acting and facial animation is amazing. I just play in awh when I am playing. I am so glad this series is still going so strong after all of these years.
If you do have an xbox one x this is for sure a must have. I love how they did not change up too much with the controls. So you can just dive in and play. This will be a huge plus for newcomers to the series as well.
So please do yourself a favour and pick up the latest and one of the best entries to the game. It has incredible replay value as well.
I can not put the controller down. Alright time for this to be over and get back to playing.
In this episode, Jonah's character actor really steps up his game. He shows a wide range of emotion, and really becomes the character whose path I was excited to see.
Lara, on the other-hand, seems like she was in a different location than the other voice-actors. Her dialogue feels heartless and boring. Also, this game follows about the same plot as the last: there is an artifact that Lara doesn't want Trinity to have, so she leads them right to it, and they get it. Enough! This time around, Lara should have been bringing the fight TO Trinity. She should have gone after tome relic to help her fight them, then taken them down. Instead, she feels just as naive as in the first game, which doesn't make sense; she should be a hardened, seasoned warrior...not a bright-eyed innocent girl.
This was a huge disappointment story wise. Graphically, it is very similar to the previous two in this series reboot: it looks beautiful, but there are no major upgrades. The same can be said of the sound (with the exception of the sub-par voice-acting by Lara).
You have been warned.
All that being said the game is good! Just not as good as the previous two! Also I play this on an XB1X .... and even after switching the setting to frame rates prefered.... there are DRASTIC frame drops every Lara walks into a town.... I was little let down about that
First things first, the visuals and sound are fantastic. Lara looks and moves like as realistic of a video game character as you'll ever see. I have been playing on an OG Xbox One and projector that actually only does 720p, but the graphics are incredible and the environments are a marvel. The game has a photo mode that I've used a few times just to admire how far Xbox One graphics have come.
As far as the gameplay, there are no surprises here if you've played either of the previous games, or an Uncharted game on PlayStation. The basics of it are run, jump, climb, swim, shoot, hide, solve puzzles, repeat. Lara controls well and overall I wouldn't call the game on normal difficulty too challenging. That being said, there are always parts of platformers like this one where you're supposed to jump just the right direction or turn a certain way in a fast paced sequence that if you miss it, Lara dies a gruesome death. Seriously... some of the death animations are disturbing. I've seen her face bashed in on a rock, her body impaled by a giant metal spike, face eaten by a monster... you get the point.
As far as the story goes, you're basically playing through an interactive movie. There are lots of very good cutscenes, but eventually you'll want to start skipping them and getting on with the game. The story isn't terribly deep, you basically are trying to prevent an apocalypse that you [very mild spoiler warning] may or may not have triggered... and you're up against the Trinity bad guys just like the other games who have other intentions. As the story progresses, you'll notice a tonal shift from Lara being a semi-naive adventurer to downright badass killer. Like seriously, the transition is almost jarring. There was a point about 7 hours into the game for me where Lara has a sequence with some intense music [another very mild spoiler] where she rises out of the water and it shows bad guys cowering in fear at her badassness and she lights them up, and you start hearing her cuss at them over the radio. It's pretty insane.
If you're a fan of the genre, you will not be disappointed, and even if the story isn't your cup of tea, the gameplay is fun and you get to sneak around and witness all the new ways Lara can wipe out the enemy, from poisoning them to tying them up to tree branches. I would recommend this game to that group of people.
If you're completely new to the series, I'd start with the first one or "Rise" to get your feet wet.
UPDATE: I finished the main storyline of the game in 10.5 hours. The total completion percentage was 60%, so there are lots of things like challenge tombs and side quests to go back and complete.

En cuanto al juego, si te gustaron los dos pasados, éste te encantará ya que mantiene todo lo que hizo interesante a sus predecesores en cuanto a jugabilidad. Lamentablemente no puedo decir lo mismo de la historia pues como a la mitad del juego se vuelve un poco aburrida y pierde sentido, pero el gameplay divertido y el elemento de exploración logran salvarlo.
The package arrived promptly, and without issues.
I am satisfied with my purchase.
