    A lack of decent bonuses makes the Definitive Edition a hard sell for existing fans, but for newcomers it's a slice of platforming perfection that will make the wait for next-gen blockbusters easier to bear.

    The biggest draw of Tomb Raider: The Definitive Edition is the improved graphics. They're simply stunning in perhaps the best-looking console game I've ever seen. Running smooth 1080p resolution, this new version adds an incredible level of detail to the newly modeled characters and lush environments.

    If you never had the chance to experience the game a year ago, then the Definitive Edition is an absolute no-brainer. In fact, we’re even slightly envious of those people that waited, because Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition is one of the Xbox One's best games.

    Even though it’s an incredible game, it’s still one that can be beaten over a quick rental period, with multi-player that isn’t deep enough to sustain the experience for much longer.

    Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition's enhancements are cosmetic-only so the flaws present in the game's last-gen version are still present. Even so, it's a great game made greater, so for those yet to play it, this is the version to get.

    The same game looking better - and offering a deeper immersion into Lara's island nightmare. [Issue #239]

    The only thing we can definitively say is that if publishers are going to begin overcharging for slight next-gen upgrades, then this is going to be one hell of a long generation.

    This is a very good action adventure game. With puzzles, great shooting mechanics and tons of explorable areas , this game will keep you busyThis is a very good action adventure game. With puzzles, great shooting mechanics and tons of explorable areas , this game will keep you busy for quite a while. BUT WHAT I CANNOT UNDERSTAND, is why you would buy this game if you previously had it. It is the SAME GAME. Those who bought it again and are complaining about a lack of innovation are idiots. IT IS THE SAME **** GAME. Buy it if you have not already, because it's great, but if you already have the 7th gen version or the PC version, YOU ALREADY HAVE THIS GAME, lol. People are basically complaining about their own stupidity on here. Expand

    I bought this game for Xbox One because there are not so much titles you can buy right now for this platform. I must say I was a little bitI bought this game for Xbox One because there are not so much titles you can buy right now for this platform. I must say I was a little bit scared, because this is my first Tomb Raider game and I had no plan what is waiting for me in this game.
    I must say, that this is a very good game, maybe the best I played since last summer. Maybe not because graphics, I think the Xbox One could do a lot more than this. But the storyline and the gameplay is in my opinion very great, you can play offensive and also "defensive". The AI is challenging if you play on hard i think and also the discoverable objects, which give you more story background are well done.
    Of course, it's a remake of an Xbox360-Version, so I wouldn't buy this for Xbox One if I had bought the game for Xbox360.
    All in all my opinion:
    + Good story plot
    + Well told story
    + Well AI for every type of gamer
    + Nice gameplay
    + Quite good graphics...
    - ...but for "Next-Gen" not enough
    - a more non-linear story could be nice

    Really enjoyed the in depth story line, impressive eye candy graphics and fluid game play that Tomb Raider had to offer. The whole vibe ofReally enjoyed the in depth story line, impressive eye candy graphics and fluid game play that Tomb Raider had to offer. The whole vibe of this game is fantastic, plenty of weapons, crafting, explosions, collectibles, hidden areas and more and more. The game also features plenty of puzzles to work your way through. At times Tomb Raider can seem a bit tedious with lots of backtracking, and the online feels like it was tacked on, but overall a fantastic game worth playing. Expand

    I didn't play this game on 360 or ps3, so it was brand new to me when I picked it up for X1.

The movement and combat is extremely fluid, the graphics are fantastic, the story isn't amazing but it works. All in all, I would highly recommend this game, and I'm really looking forward to future installments in this franchise. Great game!! Expand

    The first tomb raider game I had every played, and I was immediately hooked, and a fan. If you get this game which I recommend you do, play itThe first tomb raider game I had every played, and I was immediately hooked, and a fan. If you get this game which I recommend you do, play it on the hardest difficulty, it makes Lara feel like a real person, and you feel like a kick ass glass cannon. Combat and exploration is top of the **** line. The only critic I could come up with is the map is a bit too dark and has a lack of color that makes exploration difficult, and upgrading weapons becomes a bit too grindy, trying to find all the parts, and the grim look fits into the theme, so I'm just nitpicking because of how great this game is, BUY IT, when theres a spring sale on xbox I got it for 3 dollars and it's the best money you will ever spend Expand

    I hated so much this game, i was hyped by the reboot but it has nothing to do with a tomb raider game. No tropical/luxurious/antique sites, noI hated so much this game, i was hyped by the reboot but it has nothing to do with a tomb raider game. No tropical/luxurious/antique sites, no puzzles, no adventure...just a generic/boring TPS, just "ouch, ouch i take a stick in my womb and fall every 10 seconds but can still walk, run etc." and "bam bam tatata bang" worse than a COD. I don't get all the hype for this game. Expand
