The reboot has a good mix of problem solving and firefights. It's a beautifully made game - but I do have a couple of gripes with it.
First, the game is heavily guided. It's like watching a movie, where every-so-often the controls are handed to you. And being that it is an SE game, there are a lot of random console-ish challenges that pop up from time to time, where you have no direct control over Lara except to make her evade death by pressing a particular controller button at exactly the right moment.
Second, although you can die in plenty of different ways during regular gameplay, there's no way to lose progression. If you die, the game just jumps back to the beginning of that scene, and you try again indefinitely until you beat it. It just seemed like there wasn't a great deal of risk.
Other than that, I loved the majority of the game. There was one particular gunfight that actually had my heart racing, lol. I hope the new game is as good if not better.
