If Crystal Dynamics are on the money with their metrics, I think we know what next week's Number One will be.
According to a tweet from Global Brand Manager Karl Stewart, Tomb Raider managed to hit the one million player mark in its first two days. "Wow, 1m gamers playing in less than 48hrs! @tombraider fans, you're AMAZING Hearing some stores are running low..more copies are on the way!"
The gaming press has been unanimous in its praise for Crystal Dynamic's Tomb Raider reboot, with Matt awarding a 9/10 score and our Editor's Choice award in our Tomb Raider review.
"The entire Tomb Raider experience is built around the (re)birthing of an icon in terms of action-adventuring," he wrote. "Deliciously tight mechanics, combined with a fine balance between scripted setpieces and player-driven action deliver an immaculately paced piece that grabs hold and never let's go. It might not prove transcendental, but it points towards a future of great promise for the franchise. Simply outstanding."
