‘Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition’ review
By Steven Cayer, Senior Columnist
Every year when Valentine’s Day comes around, I always try to find someone special to spend it with. This year, I’ll be spending it with an architecture-loving survivalist who goes by the name of Lara Croft.
Tomb Raider came out for the PS3 last March and took the franchise to a whole new level. Now the franchise gets a redo with Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition for the PS4.
It includes all of the downloadable content that has come out previously. Fans of the PS3 version might be a little hesitant to fork over another $60 for almost the same game. But if you’re a huge fan like myself, you won’t mind jumping back into a survivalist’s dream with Lara Croft.
The main differences between last year’s game and this year’s are the graphics and controls. The most noticeable is definitely the graphics. Everything has gotten a slight tune-up from the island setting of Yamatai to Lara herself. Apparently she has a new face now.
Aside from the graphics, which are epic, the game has embraced the PS4 controller and its new features. You can now use the touch button to open up your map and drag your finger like it’s on a tablet. As a really cool bonus, if you have either a PS4 camera or a headset, you can use many different voice commands such as “pause” or even name a weapon you have and different types of ammo such as “fire” for your arrows or shotgun.
This is definitely a game Tomb Raider fans should check out.
