Tomb Raider Playtest: Bookworm Archaeologist To Femme Fatale

 

Tomb Raider starts out with trouble right off the bat with an intense shipwreck scene. The next thing you know, Lara is hanging upside down in a cave full of skulls and eerily lit candles.

Reboots are a risky old business. Any media franchise can begin to grow old and tired, gimmicks and ideas that previously enthralled audiences leaving people cold - and videogames are no exception. There's something else present in gaming, though -...

Tomb Raider is an exhilarating action adventure that serves as a terrific origin story for the iconic Lara Croft.

Story believably builds Lara up from unsure academic to confident adventurer ; Fascinating setting with a rich sense of history ; Intense combat that offers a good deal of flexibility ; Controls make physically overcoming the island's terrain a...

Forgettable multiplayer component ; Outside of Lara's character arc, story is predictable

Then, there are the all-out firefights. When your presence is known, enemies are smart and aggressive about flushing you out from cover with grenades and Molotovs, which forces you to keep moving and act boldly. Many enemies attack from a distance...

Lara Croft is back and this time she's been rebooted. The game proves that there's life in a previous concept if the execution is near-flawless.

Tomb Raider is a superb game that deserves your hard-earned cash right away. It takes a mature approach to storytelling and reboots a beloved franchise in a good way.

Tomb Raider PS3 Review

 

A survivor is born... again. Reboots are en vogue, and if you wade in to take a look, you will see the internet floating on the horizon, drifting off in a sea of contempt. Remember when Fallout 3 was announced and it wasn't a carbon copy of the...

Amazing, fluid gameplay ; Intriguing and mysterious narrative ; Incredible art direction ; Fantastic animation ; Killer bushes

Multiplayer feels like an afterthought ; Ludonarrative dissonance ; Killer bushes

But this goes to show that the graphics are great. The environments are vast and beautiful. There's a lot to explore if you want to take a look away and decide to ignore the objective arrow. There are optional tombs to discover, plenty of puzzles to...
