I am about 45 minutes into this beautifully made, emotion grabbing game.
From the first 5 minutes you instantly get attached to this young Lara, you also notice, things just don't go her way at all, from ledges giving way, to rocks inside caves just crumbling to stop her getting out in to the open.
You take control of Lara as you get captured, hanging upside down having to swing your way into flames to get loose, after which you fall a big distance on to a spike which pierces into Laras stomach.
The story so far seems solid, with the game making you feel for Lara, you just want to know what is happening on this strange island, its kind of like playing Uncharted with the popular "Lost" storyline.
No grunts from me, movement is expected from a 3rd person game
Controls are good
Combat so far is Solid. The bow is the first weapon, a simple L1 to aim, and R1 to fire. Simple yet effective. Hunting a deer is your first challenge, again after the kill you hit Laras emotions having to cut into the prey for food.
Its a good while before getting hold of a gun, the islands inhabitants capture you and the others forcing you to take cover and try and escape. This is where Lara is forced to make a first kill, the game does beautifully again, capturing Lara's emotions.
This is where i am up to.
The game so far is brilliant, a must buy IMO
