"Great game - especially on PC."
When it lets you actually play the game instead of a dressed-up QTE, and when it doesn't trip all over itself trying half-assly to reference Apocalypse Now. There is a fantastic game buried within Tomb Raider. It's just bogged down with some enormous flaws.
The moment to moment exploration and gun-play is brilliantly done. The engine spits out gorgeous renders. The art direction is fantastic. It's extra year of polish really shows.
On the other hand, it desperately needed an editor's hand to cut out the garbage. The game was a good 30% too long for the story that it wanted to tell. Every time it took control away from the player made me want to shoot myself. Whether as a QTE or a cutscene, that crap was far too common and far too obvious. Lara turned from innocent to warrior in a flash, but any time a male character was around she immediately went back to being a whimpering child. "Oh noes, save me substitute father figure or ignored boy with a crush!"
I give Tomb Raider both a 9/10 and a 4/10. That does not average to a 6.5/10, as it is very distinctly both scores. I can't quite decide if it is a good game wrapped in the cloth of a bad game, or a terrible game masquerading as something great.
