What's New in Version 1.3
Improved stability and multiplayer performance
Highest Quality Gaming, yet not in the top ten - the mind boggles?
This is probably without doubt the best game you could possibly get to date on the App Store right now. I know this kinda thing has been said many times before by other people regarding many different game, but in this case and having played it for a while; it's completely true and I can't for the life of me see why there are some reviews with less stars - puzzling...
Only gripe I can see: needs to be turned into iTunes '+' app for both iPad & iPhone (too late for me though as I've already purchased both, hence my same review for both formats). There's no room anymore for app's within iTunes that are not iTunes '+', therefore forcing you to purchase apps twice, but to be fair and give the developers some credit this incredible game is dirt cheap on both iPad & iPhone and for what you get, it rivals the graphics and enjoyability factor of games costing several times more on home consoles. People need to start giving worthy decent games on the App Store full credit and decent marks otherwise they'll stop developing decent games like this for give-away prices.
While I sympathize with people who say they are having crashes I've not had a single one since the first update (I restart the device before playing).
This is probably now my favorite iPad game. Graphics are mint, controls are well done and the gameplay has tons of puzzles and twin stick shooting action. There are also a lot of collectables and challenges which give the game replay value.
This is one of the few games I'd say genuinely resembles a console experience with it's long campaign and professional polish. Probably my favorite Lara adventure since Tomb Raider 2. It's great!
Lara! excellent console quality game
I held off for ages due to the many mixed reviews. Boy am I glad I took the plunge eventually. This game is as close to a console quality game as you'll get on an iPad in my view.
I'm playing on an iPad 3, I have plenty of spare memory, and rebooted the ipad after loading it. Not one issue !!! and I'm now on the 3rd level.
My gut feeling is that the negative reviews may be from iphone users with little spare memory, but I may be wrong.
If you like Lara you'll love this.
