Tomb Raider question for new game.....

How is it? I recently saw my friends boyfriend play it and it looked awesome. For those of you who have played the majority of it though, what do you think of it? I am thinking of buying it on payday next month as I'm sure it will hold me over a couple of months as I'm desperately wanting to play BEYOND and The Last of Us.
I saw the IGN review and obviously a 9.1 is fantastic, but I wanted to see what you guys think of it.

Why is that funny? I usually find them pretty reliable in what is a nice game. I never said I was taking it SERIOUSLY where it was my only reason for wanting to play the game, but for me personally I've never had a major problem with IGN, of course they're not perfect and I have disagreed here and there, but as I said usually I have agreed with scores.

Let me give you an example of what happens with IGN scores. Mass Effect 3 is coming out. All over IGN there are advertisements for Mass Effect 3. Now IGN have two options here. 1) Say it's a crap game and watch all there advertisement deals/money say bye bye. 2) Give it a great review and advertising money comes from the next AAA title followed by the next in exchange for good scores. I mean what company is going to give advertising money to a site that will completely destroy their sales. Video game journalism is corrupt as hell and if anything youtube/independent journalists are your best bet.

Re: Tomb Raider question for new game.....

It's VERY good. I highly recommend it. Unless you're a completionist I don't see why you should buy it at this point if renting it is an option.

But what makes you say they do that regularly? I know you didn't use the word regularly but if your so displeased with the site I'm assuming you notice it a lot? I'm not disagreeing tho, of course I see some games get quite a high score when I didn't expect it to, if I thought IGN were 100% reliable I wouldn't be asking you guys what you think of this one lol. But I am curious as to why you think they do that for all games, not curious in a way where I think you're wrong, but more in a way what made you see it that way.

I don't use IGN much in my choices in buying a game, but I do admit it does sometimes play a factor....actually I don't overly rely on any rating site as games are different for everyone, that's why I prefer to get the opinions of usual gamers such as people here. But have you noticed that kind of rating lately?.....I did find Luigi's mansion 2 to be a bit too high....it was a good game but not 9.3 good.

I'm afraid its not =(...barely any renting places where I live =(. I think I may buy it, is it a nice full game? Meaning it isn't short?

The problem is I'm not sure if there is a local place to rent it. All the blockbusters and Rogers Videos are all gone. There is a place near by but it only rents out movies, no new games. How long did you play each day? I'm curious as I'm not sure the level of gamer you are, so I'm wondering if you got through it easy because you are usually great at games or not?

Re: Tomb Raider question for new game.....

Seph is a crazy gamer so he could have probably beat it in a day plus he red boxed it so didnt wanna get charged daily

The game is great and im glad I own it but its probably a rent. Once you beat the game theres really nothing left to do besides collecting and that can be easily done in your first playthrough. The Multiplayer is decent, kinda like Uncharted's but not as good.

for my first TR game ever it was great
