This game is great and is a worthy edition to the Tomb Raider series.

A lot of People wanted this to fail and it had some negative articles from some corners but its come through. After nearly every big game of late getting poor mediocre reviews this is a real breath of fresh air.

Excellent game, Tress FX graphics are stunning.

It is great, but they could use some improvement in physics. Walking forward or left to right shouldn't move hair that much. Maybe a weight issue? Maybe if the game was made on only hardware that supported it it would turn out perfect, but PS4/Xbox3 isn't out yet.
