I think I liked this less than most. The highlight for me was Lara herself, the island, and the brief moments when it felt like a struggle for survival. Yes the character development was clunky, but at least they tried.
The rest of it - combat, collectibles, QTEs especially - was dull at best and often seemed to go against what they were trying to achieve. If the combat was avoidable, or at least I had the option to stealth my way through most of it, I think it would have been a much better game. In retrospect I should have played it on Easy.
There were definitely glimmers of a great game here, but they were buried by way too much game baggage. And don't get me started on the multiplayer! I just hope that next gen will be a chance to start afresh, keep the good stuff and purge the cruft.
