    "Such a pretty game! I can't believe this game looks so good and on a phone! I like the battles, but they can be a headache. It keeps me busy when I am between classes."

    "Eh, this game is okay I guess. The graphics are terrible, looks really old school. The game is kind of fun to play, but the awful graphics really take away from it. I think I'll end up uninstalling it. "

    "Anyone that played Lara croft games pretty much know what they are getting except this one is more on the slower pace. You have to realy put yourself and engage yourself into the story. It is a slow burn type of game. So if you are looking for quick , fast action this one might be the one you will have to pass up. Otherwise get it"

    "I'm not sure I would call this a story driven game but it sure is fun! You move around and get to make decisions on what you do and where you go. It can be addicting but I soon found myself playing it less and less. Decent enough distraction."

    "While this is a pretty good story driven game it is not on the iPhone. So the solution doesn't fit what I want. I'll say it's pretty below average since I can't play it on my device."
