    Thought I would get this up and running since its released tomorrow and some folk may receive theirs today.

    Looks promising unlike the last few games.

    A day off work tomorrow may be required. :D

    I've got £40-odd in Game credit to use, I think I'll pick this up tomorrow. I had been holding onto it pending Bioshock's release but I'm encouraged by the rave reviews.

    I remember Rhianna Pratchett when she was a journo at PC Zone so it will be interesting to see what she has done with the story and script for the reboot.

    Oh, and Camilla Luddington who voices Lara and did the mo-cap is absolutely lovely. She singlehandedly makes it worth sitting through Greys Anatomy when my wife inflicts it on me.

    So far I have not encountered anything too taxing. Have to say that the size of the tombs are a little dissapointing so far but rhw story is excellent.

    I have 2 important questions.

    I always remember being able to dual wield pistols/uzis and being able to do back flips at the same time and also when hanging off a ledge holding down the jump button to climb up do a hand stand on the edge of the ledge then gracefully bend backwards to stand up?

    Can you do both or either of these in this Tomb Raider?

    In which case, Jason, you will be delighted to know that Miss Luddington also appeared in series 5 of Californication and was not averse to getting her kit off!

    (So I'm told anyway - I haven't seen past season 4..... The photos thrown up by a Google search do corroborate that though ;) )

    Really enjoying this so far, it's very cinematic with its set pieces and has so far been non stop.

    It's now moving on to more stealthy gameplay.

    But overall, so far so good!

    Graphics are also very good!

    Well it seems everyone is enjoying this so far. :) My copy from LOVEFiLM came today. The wife hadn't realised I'd signed up to them again and binned it. I got her to fish it out of the bin as i put my wife beater and my sovereigns on.

    I'm slightly worried!
    Only been playing for about 20 minutes. Just lit my first camp, but the game already seems 4% complete! Thats alot for 20 mins play i think. Hope this lasts a long time!
    Other than that, im loving it so far and think it looks amazing.

    Finished it already:( Great game while it lasted but even with the 11% of artifacts left to collect I don't think this game will last me 18 hours.

    I'm enjoying it but its a bit style over substance for me.exploring tombs should be the basic gameplay of a tomb raider game,not this.
