I am mostly a PC gamer and used to keyboard + mouse for shooters for years. For Tomb Raider, I used Xbox controller for change, also because I found it easier to control 3rd person characters with a controller in games like Assassin’s Creed, Batman, etc. Though aiming with a controller was challenging.
Tomb Raider is an action-adventure game about a girl looking out for adventures. Their ship gets wrecked on a mysterious island and then first 60 to 90 minutes is about the struggle to survive and finding the other crew members. This initial part is focused more character development of Lara Croft and game might feel little restrictive/slow at this early time, but it opens up later on. I really like this character development part, how all this cruelty on the Island and this struggle to survive contributes to her growth as a character she’s famous for. There’s not much focus on other crew members, but you get some detail about other characters in the form of these documents that you will find while exploring the Island.
