There are those that say they played this last year. Well good games don't get old not even within a year. I never bought the PS3 version of this since i expected a next Gen version would be in the works and it was. I am a proud owner of an amazing "New" game.

An action packed game with puzzles and great graphics. Lara Croft's Legend continues by telling how it all began. Awesome

Great game, good port, Artbook is DVD-Sized (no regular case included) Jan. 28 2014
By MiRSD - Published on Amazon.com
The PS4/XBox One version of Tomb Raider has caused a bit of drama. Tomb Raider was originally released on the PS3/Xbox 360 a little under a year ago -- when they announced the PS4 port so quick to the actual release date (announced Dec 7th, released late January), combined with the fact that it would retail at full price, it caused a bit of negative press.

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.. The controller LED also seems to change colors at points in the game (unfortunately, playing the game you rarely ever see the LED colors on the front of the controller, so I don't know how useful this feature is :) ). Lastly, some audio does seem to come out of the controllers' speaker (such as radio dialog during cutscenes). My verdict on these: I used the touchpad, didn't use voice controls and didn't really notice the controller speaker as much (unless the TV was on mute). It seems much more noticeable when used in other games such as Resogun. I didn't pay attention to the LED, but did see it changing colors from time to time.

The gameplay itself is great. Probably one of my favorite (single player -- I didn't try Multiplayer) games in years. The story keeps you entertained, the upgrades along the way work very nicely (keeps it from being the same throughout - you actually want to upgrade weapons and find new weapons), the story/gameplay is fairly linear.. hard to get lost (even in wide open areas). There are some things you can do along the way: Hunting to build up experience, optional tombs to explore. My favorite part of the game is that it was constantly moving between types of gameplay.. exploring.. hunting.. puzzles.. shootouts.. quicktime events.. it never felt like I was stuck running around for 2 hours from location to location, the variety always mixed things up and kept the game fresh.

The game itself is worth fullprice to me.

For someone who has already played/owned the PS3/360 versions, this is simply a visual upgrade for the most part. The visual upgrade is VERY NICE, but it's hard to justify buying it again when it could have easily been a "HD VERSION" like we saw last gen. While some stuff is obviously upgraded, other aspects seem to look the same. Lara's model seems to be given the biggest upgrade (obviously), but other characters seem to be mostly the same. I never played the PC version, but imagine this is closer to what that looked like.

So is it worth it?

If you do not own it on another console, Yes. I would buy the PS4 version even though the PS3 version can be had for less than half the price.
If you do own it on another console, it's hard to justify at full price. I bought it because I loved the game and was happy to play through it again and see the changes.. but that's hard to suggest others do when its merely an upgraded version and not a full remake.

Note: The PS4 version is offered in 2 options.. Standard case or Artbook. The Artbook version is the one I bought, and included a DVD-Sized artbook with slipcover and a slot in the back of the artbook to hold the game disc. This is a bit disappointing as the case is oversized and doesn't match PS4 cases. The artbook is nice with some cool concept art though.

Decent game - packaging leaves room for improvement March 20 2014
By Richard Staats - Published on Amazon.com

There are not a lot of games out for the PS4 as I write this review.

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.

It's prettier, but a lot of the same same Feb. 8 2014
By Jason - Published on Amazon.com

So I have the PS3 version and now the new PS4 version. And I will admit the PS4 version is prettier. Looks better then Assassins Creed 4, but nowhere near Killzone. But as the version that you should buy... if you haven't bought this game yet on any system this is a great game for your brand new console... if you don't care about graphics you might want to pick up the last gen version for $15.

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. But it is fun that the last 4 are just more violent ways to kill people with your different weapons.

Oh I should also note I had a gift card and only paid 3 real dollars for this game, if I paid full price I would have been a little disappointed the added DLC is multiplayer exclusive or costumes for Lara nothing more. Also though I’m not sure how this applies to my rating but the trophy list is the usual kill 75 guys with the machine gun kind of trophy but they also have a ton of multiplier grinding trophies and considering the multiplier is considered one of the worst for the industry these trophies are nothing more then a pain to get. I’d love to platinum this game but I don't want to grind for them.

PS the new remodeled Lara looks strange to me, maybe its because I can now actually see that she has permanent mascara and her face looks weirdly swollen. But that said the environment looks great, especially the rocks and tombs. Graphics don’t make a game, but damn they compliment it well.

The best looking video game I have played Jan. 29 2014
By David Lazarek - Published on Amazon.com

I just got into the game on PS4 a little last night, and I was blown away by the graphics. It is a beautiful game, and so far the action has been intense. I highly recommend this game to anyone with a PS4. It has to be seen on your big screen to truly be appreciated. Lara's brutal deaths can be over the top, and make me want to do well so I don't see her get crushed, shot, smashed etc. ;)
Lara has grown-up Nov. 11 2014
By Richard Baker - Published on Amazon.com
The Good: The new Lara is memorable and more human, the gun play and exploring mechanics are tight and cinematic, lots of fun collectibles to find, interesting and engaging story, outstanding graphics and sound

The Bad: Boring multiplayer, not enough tombs to explore

This is exactly how you do a game series reboot right. I wish I could end my review on that, but I need to tell you why. Tomb Raider suffered through a few mediocre games during the first run of the series during the late 90's-early 2000's. The first reboot did well for the series by maturing Lara and giving us better controls and a more cinematic experience. Now comes Tomb Raider in 2013, a fantastic game that shows the more human side of Lara. The game starts out with you and a science crew on a ship on the way to an achealogical site, but things go awry when Lara decides to head to the Dragon's Triangle off the coast of Japan. A mysterious storm destroys the boat and Lara and team are stranded on this island. There is a mysterious cult trying to sacrifice people to a sun goddess to end these storms. Lara has to deal with this if she wants off course.

What makes Tomb Raider so memorable is the struggle she goes through while surviving. She is nearly raped, suffers tremendous injuries and has to cope with herself in dealing with the fact that she has to kill to survive. She is not comfortable with this at first and really struggles to pull the trigger. This adds layers of depth to her character that weren't seen before. Not only is her personality more memorable, but her looks have changed. No longer is Lara wearing the short shorts and tight shirt with her huge bust. She has been knocked down a few cup sizes and is much younger, straight out of college in fact. It's hard to really describe her more than this, you have to play the game to really connect.

The gameplay in Tomb Raider has completely changed, but yes there is platforming and gun play. Both are tight and very well crafted. Gun play consists of using scraps to create a pistol, bow, machine gun, and shotgun. That's it. As you progress and find salvage in crates and dead bodies you can upgrade these to look like and feel like better weapons. There are many upgrades that increase damage and accuracy as well as adding new ammo types. Lara's animations are very well done and realistic and this falls into combat. She scrambles around and ducks behind cover, the guns feel great to shoot and you can see how inexperienced Lara is, she's not a Navy SEAL or commando. Unlike other games like this her stumbling animations don't interfere with the game at all. You can still move around, you can dodge, and there's even some melee thrown in. As you upgrade your skills (done at various campfires throughout the game) you can dodge and through quick time events can do some pretty gruesome kills.

While gun play is tight and fun, exploring is just as important. This island is massive and you can go anywhere, there's no limits. Fast traveling via camps really helps, but there's a reason for moving around everywhere: collecting hidden items. These range from relics, GPS caches, documents etc. There are hidden tombs found throughout the game that hold area maps for these items. These tombs consist of cleverly made physics puzzles that are really fun to complete. You get rewards like art and 3D models to view. The whole game just has an amazing atmosphere and is just so much fun to explore.

On top of all the climbing around you get a climbing axe which is an important tool for climbing and combat. Your bow is used for shooting ropes across valleys and canyons to pull items to solve puzzles, break doors, and access to new areas. The whole exploring ideal in this game is just fantastic and really fun. I did have to think about how to get to new areas and actually try to navigate and experiment, that' good game design. There is a Survival Instinct ability that highlights map markers, objectives, and when you unlock the skill, you can see items through walls.

The story itself is a bit confusing, the whole spirtual thing is a bit unbelievable in such a realistic world like this, but that is what Tomb Raider is known for. Lara is the main character here and what she goes through was the main story for me. I loved every second of the story. The voice acting is awesome and the graphics look amazing.

The multiplayer was tacked on late in development and is pretty boring. The combat was designed for cinematic game play, not multiplayer. It feels just like it does in the story, but it just doesn't suit multiplayer well. I played all of three rounds and got bored of the game. Some people may like it, but there are better multiplayer shooters out there.

Overall, Tomb Raider is one of my favorite games of all time and is really memorable. The voice acting is solid, and Lara's new personality makes her more human and more relatable. The graphics are outstanding and the gun play and exploring mechanics are fun and very cinematic.

I have to say that the graphics upgrade alone is worth a re-buy. The game looks even better than the best settings on PC. Lara's newly remodeled look is fantastic and TressFX on her hair have finally been fixed to where there isn't any slow down from it. All textures and lighting has been slightly bumped up and the smooth 60FPS in 1080p on next-gen consoles just looks gorgeous. This game still holds up well to this day and I played the game all the way through with the same excitement and rush that I did the first time. The PS4 version has been specifically tailored to the controller and headset. You can now play most of the game with voice commands, however there are quite a few and it takes a while to remember them all. The PS4 speaker is used through most of the game as ambiance but I found some narrative bits going through both the controller and TV sounded strange. The Definitive Edition is well worth the buy and is the best version yet.
