Tomb Raider
New Tomb Raider Screenshots Are Explosive
Written By
View author's profile

Tomb Raider is out next week, and our review is painfully close. Dan's killed off the single-player story bit, but now he's knee-deep in the game's multiplayer, putting it through its paces.

With our impending review just around the corner, Square Enix has sent across some lovely new screenshots that see Lara in abject peril once more, dodging bullets and walking through fire in her fight for survival.

It all looks a little bit too shooty for a Tomb Raider game, but we're assured that there is some tomb raiding in the game. There had better be, or we're going to trading standards.

Tomb Raider is out on March 5th. You can check out all 15 screenshots in the gallery. Keep your eyes peeled for our review once Dan's got the measure of the game's multiplayer.

4th and 5th screens are great. I'm looking forward to this game now that I've paid it off.

Reviewing the multiplayer too!? :O But, but....then you'll be reviewing the entire game! Has this been done before?

The three I've read, only two mentioned it and just gave it a brief "It's alright.", these ratings just seem to be for the Single Player. Reviewing half a game is worthless when you have to put your actual money down for it.

ehh....This game has Lara Croft (albeit, not yet an archaeologist), exploring Japanese ruins, fighting mercenaries who want her dead, and probably some native locals....what more in this game do you need for it to be "Tomb Raider", looks good enough for me.

God would the 5th get here already. This is my first Tomb Raider game and I'm so pumped up for it from the game trailers and screenshots.

I actually got a chance to demo the Singleplayer and it's really kickass. I wish they would have focused solely on that, but I am going to rent this and see if the MP is any good.

Beautiful game. It is look like best graphics in 2013 until Bioshock Infinite to WOW us. :D

Crysis 3 did good job but not WOW like Bioshock Infinite or Tomb Raider. So Crysis 3 is near as WOW like your eyes going shocks.

Look forward this too much because I knew Story going be great not only gameplay or graphics. :D

I really hope people support this game, and not write it off just because of one achievement and/or the multiplayer aspect. So far I've yet to see anyone give it below a 9, so I hope that trend keeps going.

@20: I don't get the Crysis graphics boner the media always spouts. Is it just that the engine can throw a lot of stuff on screen at once? None of the visuals in that game made me go 'WOW' and that happened several times in Dead Space 3. When Psycho reveals New York City inside the dome at the end of the first chapter the visual that's reveal is just so......who gives a shit?? Buildings, trees, river, what?
Plus the 'visions' looked like static Jpgs and the lightning effects were comical.
Crytek need some better art direction.
A decent AI programmer wouldn't go amiss.

Anyone read Eurogamer's 8/10 review on Tomb Raider? Reads like a 3 or 4. They didn't kick the shit out of it, but I didn't see anything too nice said about it either.

@17, i was thinking the same thing. Initially when i saw the first screenshot with the flames i thought "hey, this scene reminds me of the burning building scene from Far Cry 3"....Next screenshot it looks like Vaas is saving Lara from falling lol, weird. Still, have this game pre-ordered and very excited as I haven't played a Tomb Raider game since the originals on Playstation 1.

I loved the Tomb Raider series, I'm just not feeling the love for this game. Can't quite put a finger on it though. Hope Sqeenix doesn't ruin the experience like they did with Hitman...

Reviews have worried me slightly (not the scores, just the fact the game sounds very actiony for a TR game) but I'm sure it will be great nonetheless. Looking forward to getting my Collectors Edition :D

@ 11 Question about the review ('Cause no comments there). Why don't you include achievements when tallying the score for a game? I include ALL aspects of the game. For example, any game which doesn't pause when your controllers' battery pack runs out gets an automatic 10% reduction. An achievement that forces you to play the games multiplayer for a hundred hours so the developer can say "look how popular it is, we rock" should be punished. Plus, the whole missable secret achievement thing is complete douchery.

But having said all that, I still have high hopes for this game, including the multiplayer.
