I recently played the new Tomb Raider which came out on March 15, 2013. Let me just say that I have only played Tomb Raider Guardian of Light before I played the new Tomb Raider and here's what I noticed. I love the game play of the newest one. It has amazing graphics even on my older tv. I love that it's first person instead of third person.
The the thing I didn't like is in the cut scenes Lara seems to be whiney and scared not the capable badass that I was used to seeing in Guardian of Light. To be honest though in most games I don't pay much attention to the cut scenes I just want the action. I'd really like to know why they portrayed her like that though. The other thing I really liked is that she's attractive but fully clothed to be honest I get irritated that in most games the female characters are dressed like hookers. Character clothing is another topic we can touch on later.
One of my favorite things about the new Tomb Raider is hunting with the longbow and honestly it was my favorite weapon as far as I got in the game. In the new Tomb Raider you use the loot you find to purchase upgrades for tools and weapons and you earn skill points you can use to improve your skills. Overall from the 5 hours I played the new Tomb Raider I found it was fast paced, fun, exciting and visually amazing!
