Top critical review
Set up difficult with Steaming connection and game controls on pc do not work well.
on January 4, 2013
I love the Tom Raider series and went back to it over the holidays for this new game. I debated whether I should buy the cd-rom, but there was a special listed on Amazon for the download game code and I like a bargain. However, it required using Steam, an online gaming play site. The registration process and instructions were so bad that I had to call Amazon technical help twice - both for registering and then again for getting the download to work. My other Tomb Raider games on cd-rom just had to be run and always worked. Even the tech help (a really nice and helpful technician) had to check with his colleagues in order to find the screen where I had to enter my client code. If you just go to the main Steamer site, there is no place to enter the code - only a long list of games to buy. Amazon really needs to revise its instructions for the download and connection to Steam. As for the game, the kids' version on play station for the same game is easier to play than this download version for PC. I am still at the beginning, where the grapple does not work with the instruction to press jump (space bar) and the letter q. How do I get off this ledge? If the controls do not work at this stage, what do I do later? I would love to be able to go back to the simpler "Tomb Raider 1 - controls always worked although Lara did not run or work as smoothly. Aldso, Steam shuts down slowly -- it is the last to close when I shut down my computer.
