Right off the bat, this is for the most part a port of the current version. There have been upgrades to it along the way (lighting, textures, hair effects) but the game was not re-made from scratch for the next-gen versions. The original game did already look really good on the PS3/360, but there is a noticeable difference still. If you're looking for "new stuff" in this version, it's unfortunately not there.
I own the PS3 and PS4 versions and have put about 12-16 hours into the PS4 version as of this review (game completed with 67%).
The PS4 version runs at 1080p, 60fps (it may dip below that a bit, particularly in the very wide-open environments but I don't have any way of confirming the framerate. For me, it seemed to run fine, just not quite as smooth as some of the smaller locations).
The PS4 version also includes all of the DLC from the original release (different costumes, multiplayer extras, etc..) -- this was nice to have included with it (as it would surely upset people if it hadnt been), but the content is still pretty basic.
The PS4 version does make use of the new controller -- you can swipe up on the touchpad to light the torch, down to put it out.. you can use voice controls to bring up map, switch weapons, etc..Read more ›
Now that said the reason I picked this game up again is that I love this games combat. It’s some of the most satisfying 3rd person combat I’ve played. It’s fluid, the AI is smart enough to give you a challenge and completely unrelenting. The weapons feel right, and the bow is a true pleasure to use for precision people like myself.
But the story the second time through falls short… it isn’t bad it’s just not good. Lara is a nice character going through the changes of being a normal chick to a complete badass, toting two pistols. And its fun to go along the ride with her. The game has an over all feel of being a survival horror game mixed with Uncharted’s climbing puzzle solving. But its not funny or exciting like uncharted, the writing and polish of those games is just amazing. But that said it barrows a ton from them, which is funny cause they barrowed so much from Tomb Raider franchise.
One thing I love about this game it’s like an old school Zelda game, that when you get a new item you can then access a new area, or an old area you had to pass up cause you didn’t know you could use the blah blah to get up that rock wall. It's a game that doesn’t mind being a game. The leveling system on the other hand is a little pointless kind of like it was added on a little to late in the development process.Read more ›
For the networked ones, there seems to be a fair amount of times when you cannot get on the PSnet, or you have sudden drops.
One big advantage of Tomb Raider is that you can play it in the single player mode.
It has some nice features like the ability to use your "survival sense" to figure out what game elements you need to interact with. (This has been around in console and computer games at least as long as the original Neverwinter Nights, and it is good to see companies using a tried and true technique that works.)
The plot was more than a bit linear, but that would have only knocked it down to four starts. The reason I am giving it three is that it did not come with the items promised in the deluxe package.
First, "Preorder to receive art book packaging; get an insider?s look at exclusive, never before seen concept art."
Ummm ... no, did not come with it. No one seems to know what it was supposed to include, but it did cost more.
Second, "Own the complete Tomb Raider experience with all of the DLC, including the Tomb of the Lost Adventurer, six outfits for Lara, a digital mini art book, and the digital comic 'The Beginning.'"
My desktop PC with a Blu-Ray reader cannot access the game disc. I'm not sure why. Maybe it is DLC, but for whatever reason, I was not able to get at art book or the comic.
So, the game did not deliver what it promised in extras. The game itself was OK. The graphics were very nice.
