Got to agree, just finished it up over the last weekend, and what a treat. Unfortunately for Crystal Dynamics, Ubisoft is a bunch of morons and thinks it sold poorly. While that type of thinking shouldn't be supported, I would suggest people buy this one to show CD (the developer) support. they've slowly been moving Tomb Raider in the right direction, and this orgin story is one of the best efforts in the franchise.
My only worry is what will the story be next round? Lots of gunplay and shooting of people this time around, but historically you don't really get that in a platformer exploring tombs. it made sense in this context, but I do admit it's even wearing thin in games like Uncharted. Does every rival archaeologist have a PMC corp at their bidding?
Anyways, I enjoyed this game much more than Bioshock Infinite, which is way overrated IMO. The AI here puts it to shame alone, and the gunplay feels much more natural and nuanced. The story might be a little weaker, but it doesn't falter at the end as BSI did. And you don't really have to hunt down all the damn collectibles to get 70% of the real story here.
MP is pretty terrible though. Maybe Ubi can recoup costs next time by not bothering, since it was not needed. Timed DLC 2 - 4 - and 10 weeks in with the 4 week DLC being free to new game buyers would have been a much better plan with the resources they had.
