I am 17 hours in and I can say that I did not play this game before. Gameplay wise as far as what Lara can do right now that they can expand on I really like it. The execution is alittle off by Uncharted standards. However, this is a great game and there are some things that you just wish were better or more Drake like in the action in shooting and just overall tightness of the controls in general. But this is more gamey if you know what I mean and the sequel could be Uncharted 2 esque because there is a lot to like about the game. For some reason I cannot put this game over UC1. Why? I cannot fully put my finger on it but it must be something like the run and shoot, strong cover system etc... I don't know as far as checkboxes it is a better game with multiplayer tons of collectibles and optional tombs. This game as a foundation though the sky is the limit because they just have to tighten and get Lara back to her acrobatic ways and this series will be neck and neck with Uncharted which took the tomb raiding crown over this past gen. However, to underestimate ND would be a BIG mistake they could make UC4 the best game we have ever experienced.

No. I've played the original version on xbox 360. But for those Who not played its a great game indeed.

Maybe when it goes down in price. Not worth $60 if I'm gonna play the campaign then sell again.

Yes but not for next gen. When developers start designing non half ass games specifically for next gen systems and not touching up rehashed current gen games I might purchase a next gen system. I don't want any game I can play on last gen bit with slightly better graphics.

It's worth buying if you don't have on last gen consoles. Not worth it to buy again solely for updated graphics

I'm not too young to play im likely older than some of you. But being deliberately ignorant to the fact of it being the first console for anyone in the world is just silly.

If you're so young that ps4/xb1 is your first console, you shouldn't be playing this game :P

Yes only if you haven't played it on last gen and there isn't much games out for next gen anyway

I want to know why it was necessary to mess with her face. She looks horrid in the Next-gen games. They reverted her lips to the old school Lara lips and her eyes look botoxed to all hell. I have the PC version and I don't mean to be the kind of person to say this but, that was a deal breaker for me. I might get it for my GF, later on when it's price drops, since she hasn't played it. I just don't get why they want to reboot the game, and then for the next gen make her look more like the old lara.

This stuff is available for $1 apiece on Steam, but I don't think I'll buy anything before I start my second playthrough.

I just like the controls on the consoles. They're much more superior to control than when it is ported or made onto the PC.

If there is a sequel, I just hope it has actual puzzles that are difficult. Not easy ones.

only if you didnt play the original last year and have just bought a ps4, not xbox one because ps4 obv is the better one

Both versions are available for PC, and both look better on PC. By far. This debate is tired, of course the PS4 and XB1 are outdated compared to PC. They are static, the PC is dynamic.

If the PS4/XB1 is your first console, you're doing yourself a DRAMATIC disservice. Get a PS3 to run through all the PS1, PS2, and PS3 classics first. O_o

Totally worth it. Not just for visuals, the game was amazing. Wish they'd do this for the Last of Us.

It's an excellent game - so if you have never played its worth it on next gen

No, If you already play once no need to play it twice. No Replay Able, No Multi-Ending, Multiplayer mode is not thing special. Just better graphic. Save money for True next-gen game.

@painpas  that was possibly the worst articulated paragraph I have ever read

@relaxcowboy this installment in the series is more of an origin story, wouldn't make much sense to use an older Laura model when this game takes place before other Tomb Raider titles.
