Haven't got a chance to play the single player yet because I've been playing the mp. It's been really fun so far. Any CAGs want to play?

Just finished playing for about 2-3 hours. Amazing game so far. I completely forgot there was multiplayer. I'll have to try it out next time I play.

Just picked it up tonight although won't get to start it until tomorrow or Thursday. I tend to wait, but I figured with my 15% off at Target and the fact they had the steelbook, I'd bite for the rare day one purchase.

I stream on Twitch. At least two times a week. http://www.twitch.tv/jstryker416

I think I'm halfway done now after
Spoiler
(that's about as vague as I can put it), so 5-6 hours into the game I guess; might be more or less since there's no in-game timer from what I can tell >_<

So far it's been mostly what I expected, a checklist of AAA game tropes from this generation, both good and bad. There have also been some unexpected things on both sides. Good is that some of the major areas are open enough to encourage exploration, but they ultimately funnel into a single place. Bad is that there really doesn't seem to be any way to fail (die from) a jump that isn't scripted. Seeing Lara move horizontally for 10 feet to make it to a ledge is really ridiculous.

Overall...it's enjoyable. It's better than Uncharted 3, but that's really not saying much. But I really haven't seen much in this game that says 'this is a Tomb Raider game' to me. Considering where I am in the game, I feel like that moment won't happen.

I'm really enjoying the game so far, played a couple of hours of single player but have not yet tried the multiplayer, probably will try a few matches here just to see how it holds up, definitely happy with the purchase overall already though.

FYI the multiplayer is terrible. Really not worth playing.

The single player is good so far (3 hours in) but not mind blowing or anything. It really is just a darker Uncharted, which isn't a bad thing.

I'm loving the single player campaign. Very addicting. I can't claim to be some hardcore Tomb Raider fan, so I don't know how much has been changed from the other games, but i'm liking this a lot so far. Tried a round of the MP last night...wasn't really feeling it. I'll try some more to see if my opinion changes, but I don't think it will. It's sad that developers are either forced to, or they feel the need to shoehorn in tacked on MP to try to drive sales(looking at you Dead Space 2)

There's a lot less of the puzzle aspect that was big in the earlier games. The combat is about 10 times better now though...especially over Underworld. That game's combat was so awful I didn't even want to play it. The optional tombs offer some of the old-style puzzling but they are super short. The 4 I've done so far only have one real puzzle each.

That said, I am really enjoying the campaign for what it is...a great cinematic experience. Controls are sharp, the combat & exploration are fun and the graphics are gorgeous (especially on PC). I played a few rounds of the MP and while it seemed ok at first, one of the maps (can't remember the name) feels so unbalanced in favor of the Solariis. My team of survivors could barely get out of our base before getting sniped by their bows. The score ended up 25-1 or something like that. I'll probably give it another go later for some achievements but that really left a bad taste.

I've got this on the shelf and will get to it once I finish the mass effect 3 citadel DLC. Everything looks really good so far though.

Finally did a match of the multi player earlier, like it more then I thought I would based off of what I read. I did a free for all though and ended up winning the match so I might be influenced by that a little lol.

To be fair Underworld was focused more on the puzzles, the shooting is almost an afterthought. I loved it in that regard.

The puzzles in this one you describe sound disheartening.

Just finished the story on Hard with 95% completion and while Steam says I've played 24 hours, it's more like 20-22 with idling and some MP. I play very slowly though and barely used Survival Instinct so you can take 3-5 hours off that for the average player to get that same completion percentage. :D

Yeah, if you go in expecting a lot of puzzles, you're going to be disappointed. There are 9 extra tombs I think and some puzzles as part of the story but it's mostly platforming, combat and looking for collectibles. I would advise anyone even slightly interested to at least rent the game though. It is one hell of an experience that I would rank up there with the best the Uncharted series has to offer.

Well the game is pretty much broken for me until they put out a patch. I went to load my save file today that was around 63%, and it kept crashing every time I tried to load it. I installed the disc to the hdd, and the save loaded up after that. I played for a few hours, then shut the 360 off. Turned it back on, tried to load the save, same shit again. I'm not going to uninstall and re-install the disc every time I want to play.

Just nearing the end of the SP and man. I am freaking loving this game. I do have to do a 2nd play though. In the midst of reading the missables, I skipped over the chatterbox achievement. Not too heartbroken over it though, I will have no issue with playing the campaign over again. :D

Yeah I'm close to 100% (probably finish in a bit) but totally missed out on the Chatterbox Achievement. I wish you could start a new game and carry over your stats/weapons. :(

Aww that's sad to hear. I was really hoping for that feature as well. Other then that I'll have to say this is the best game I've played in a really long time. This should be a must play for anyone who likes adventure,action, or platforming games.

Finally finished the game last night. Stuck at 99%. I have a single mine for Mine Sweeper I'm missing. I've spent probably 2-3 hours looking for it. I might have to break down and use a guide. :(
