Only just started playing the 2013 Tomb raider. It's definitely got more focus on action then lots of puzzles. From Greg's review i can expect the same sort of game play in the new one,with better visuals. I will get this at some point in time.

Took the plunge and got this, all ok so far with decent performance, is there a built in bench for this? I can't see one in the options. ONLY £21.59 on instant gaming, also got "Unravel" on Origin, beautiful game but that's another story ;)

Been playing Rise of tomb for a bit now and I find it not to dissimilar to the last effort, I know not everyone will agree but the graphics are more or less the same as the last tomby, personally I feel I've wasted my dosh on this, but I hope all you guys liking it enjoy it, for me it's being uninstalled and left to collect cobwebs in the corner of my steam folder.

So, I have now dusted down the cobwebs and re-installed due to DX12 patch going live, runs great, very smooth but fps has gone down a bit, still, it's playing silky smooth with patch now, only prob I have now is every time I run TR in DX12 the start menu in windows screws up, this only happens after I run in DX12, Can't bleeding win and I hear sli aint working with DX12 either, must check this myself.
