Just thought I'd write a little after downloading and playing Tomb Raider - Definitive Edition last night.
It truly blew away my expectations and I consider it to be the FIRST next gen game I have played on my XBox One. From the opening scenes I was hooked by Lara and the beauty of the island where you have arrived at.
Gameplay seemed simple enough for me and I quickly picked up the controls and which button did what thanks to the great on-screen help you are given.
I stumbled upon a crash site (Optional Tomb) and really enjoyed working out the puzzle that ensued as I set fires to bring down the crashed plane to allow my accesss to the Tomb. Fell from height a good few times but never died which is a blessing when games to have reload after a death. One of my first WOW moments as to my surprise Tomb Raider loaded back to playable in about 5 seconds. You can go make supper waiting for Ryse Son of Rome to reload so this is a great addition to the game.
I can't wait to get home from work to put Lara through her paces as we search for our fellow survivors and best friend Sam.
Loaded up multi-player to have a quick look in there and it looks stunning, allowing you to not only shoot your enemies but to set traps for them also. Really looking forward to playing a bit more of this also and a video in the "Extras" section is worth watching to help you along.
The best £45 I have spent since the XBox One Launched.
Square Enix take a bow. Next Gen is finally here
