    Entering. I played it on my friends computer and it seemed fun. Shooting people with a bow and arrow is surprisingly relaxing.

    I have this game in my wish list and didn't buy it because of the reviews :laugh: But I would play through it for free.

    I'll enter. I like that it looks fun while also having rather nice graphics, don't like that TressFX might not work as well on Nvidia (which I have), and want to play it as it looks like a great game.

    Works perfectly fine on NVidia all the reports of it not working well were right when the game released, and Nvidia was never given final game code to optimize their drivers for the game. Once an official driver released (2 weeks or so after launch) I was running a 680 and saw a 20FPS improvement and ran at 50-60fps constant with TressFX.

    I've ran it on a 470 on ultra and my current 290x the game ran great and has fantastic repaly and play value. I cant say I dabbled in the multi player but the game is fantastic and does not disappoint the TR fanbase at all. Absolutely fantastic game I loved it.

    Good on you OP for putting it up for giveaway.

    You're at it again. I'm in for this one.

    Here's my story... I played TR1 back in 1996/97 with a Voodoo2 card. Recall playing at thanksgiving with the entire family watching. One thing that stands out is the clinking sound of teacups as the butler followed her around. Loved the game! I also played TR2, then got caught up in Half Life so never went onto TR3. The later games sucked. Now in the 2013 version, the brought back the original flavor 3rdPS with better graphics and I've seen a little on the Xbox 360. So that's my story and I'm itching to try this :)

    Great giveaway man! I'm not entering, because I have it. I just wanted to say thanks and that the game is awesome! I played it on my GTX680 with 3x 1680x1050 monitors in Nvidia surround and it was amazing. :toast:

    I'm in. I like TR because I always like female protagonist (I support gender equality by the way) and I believe female protagonists can be kickass characters too. Personally I think playing as a petite or slim girl with a pistol or a bow and arrow that can survive harsh environments using her athletic skills and cunning is more interesting and exciting than a beefy guy with assault rifle or machine gun mowing down waves after waves of enemies. No offense to anybody who likes beefy guys.

    And bow and arrow... Just how many games are there with female protagonist and bow and arrow anyway? Well, nevermind. But this TR reboot is my official Hunger Games videogame.

    Would love to get this but, alas, my little laptop just does not have the guts to take on this graphics beast. :(

    I am pleasantly surprised by this HD4000, but also a little disappointed. A happy medium, I guess. Besides, I didn't buy this thing to game on anyways. Blah, Blah, Thanks for putting this out there and good luck to everyone entering!:D

    I already have it, its a good game. Pretty too. (I may have a small crush on lara croft now) Some people take great issue with the quick time events, but once you understand what to do it's not hard. I had to get eaten by a wolf like 30 times before I figured out how to do that one, lol.

    Poor game is still in my steam library waiting to be finished, like so many others that were too good to pass up...

    Glad to see so many entering for a great game. I had never played a Tomb Raider game before this one, but I was really impressed with the game. I thought it was a lot of fun, and I'm going to be replaying it pretty soon. :)

    So let's get a winner drawn tomorrow. I'll be drawing and posting as soon as I get home from work, so plan for sometime around 6pm EST.

    Til tomorrow :toast:

    Edit: edited my post because I just realized I had typed "tomorrow" like 4 times :eek:
