nice, you essentially pay about $55 for it, if you preorder it with the $20 rewardzone certif.


Yup! It was actually a birthday present for my fiance, too. Now I feel cheap, heh.

A little over a month for a $14 price drop, another three months and I can finally play this game!

If the CE ever drops to the $40-$50 range, I might pick up the :360: version. I thoroughly enjoyed playing the :ps3: version and getting all but one of the single-player trophies (darn you, Chatterbox...!), and I wouldn't mind having a secondary excuse (i.e., achievements) to play it again.

No, I'm not desperate for achievements. I like to think of them as a neat bonus. :D

I really enjoyed it, and I agree with the comparison many have made with the Uncharted series: The Uncharted games have more likable characters and plots, but Tomb Raider outdoes it in gameplay. It approaches the third-person-shooter in a better way than Uncharted did--admittedly in a different way with its less-than-linear exploration aspects and upgrade system, though the characters themselves (except Lara) are pretty forgettable.

If I had to rate it on a 5-point scale, I'd give it a 4.5/5.

Amazon seems to be low on stock of the Special Edition controller for this game, if anyone is interested in it. Probably goes well with the Collectors Edition of the game.

I played all 3 games of Uncharted and also just finished Tomb Raider recently and it definitely stands on its own. It is over the top action, but it very enjoyable. Uncharted and TR both shares similar gameplay but it is very different in their way. First off, TR is way more gore / graphic which I like. It has a great cover and upgrade system for weapons and abilities. Just play it, you will be hooked. :applause:

I received the CE in the mail today that I ordered last week from Gamestop, and just a word of advice. If anyone plans on posing the Lara figure, you may want to think about letting it sit in some warm water for about 20 min to loosen up the joints.
I felt like I was going to break those arms.

Oh, and it may be worth noting that the game comes sealed inside the tin, and its the same UPC as the regular version.

want the game but since the single player is only 8-10hrs long will wait for under $20, wish some of those resources should have went towards making the single player longer and better

not every game needs MP, just played bioshock and it was a lot of fun, spent like 14hrs on the game but when i got to the ending it felt like 6-7 hrs game. So good

You'll want to skip this one then. It's a cheap figure with kankle ball joints from the vids i've seen. I'll buy the game at 30 and wait for the ce to converted to used and get the figure for free.

I keep going back and forth on picking this up at this price point. I'm definitely interested in the game, but I know I'll beat it once and then put it on the shelf for a while until i choose to replay it down the road. Can't decide if I should wait for a better deal later this year.

Got mine in the mail today, thanks for posting OP!

I really only wanted it for the action figure-this is the first Play Arts Kai figure I own, and as a toy nerd I am really impressed. Note that this isnt a statue, it's a fully posable figure with weapons and swappable hands and 30-something points of articulation. Also, it retails for $65 alone, which makes this CE a steal.

Mine came with a small artbook slipped outside the tin box-nifty bonus!

Mine came in yesterday. I ordered the standard version but it came with the slip cover and art book. I guess it was a leftover pre-order copy.
