So I'm only playing Tomb Raider now. Got it from my PS Plus subscription. I've read quite a lot of hyperbole about it. "It's better than Uncharted!". Etcetera.
I did not expect to find a game that's actually living up to the hype. It really does play better than Uncharted. The movement is spot-on, and it ain't hard to top Uncharted's rather loose feeling combat. It might not quite pull of the spectacle of Uncharted larger-than-life set pieces, but I feel like Crystal Dynamics managed to make them more impactful and visceral despite of it. What really puts it over the top for me though? Its structure. It reminds me of Dark Souls. Might just be that the Bonfires and Campfires are so similar, but once I start veering off the beaten path to complete challenges and search for secrets and salvage, that's when it comes into its own.
Just saying. If you are like me, and didn't quite buy the hype that's been building around Tomb Raider, consider it's kinda like *Uncharted Meets Dark Souls*. Quite the proposition. Ain't it?
