I’m no stranger to raiding tombs, that with the help of Lara Croft I must say. As discussed previously on this blog Lara Croft became a symbol in her own right in terms of her body and need for adventure. She set the standard as a fearless women. Lara has graced many of her own game covers, traveling the map in search of relics and hidden artifacts.
Now onto the good stuff, in this new Tomb Raider reboot originally released March of 2013 for the Xbox 360, PC, and PS3, we find a younger Lara Croft who is inexperienced as it relates to survival and exploration. The flight that she is on takes a turn for the worst and she find herself stranded on an island away from her friends. She must pull the power from within to survive another day. It is one of the most personal experiences one will ever have as they help Lara navigate her new surroundings.
The game featured beautiful graphics and lushes detailed environments which set the bar high for the previous generation. Tomb Raider will be released for next generation consoles, the Xbox One and the PS4. The graphics have been upgraded and for once, Lara Crofts hair moves like it’s the real thing! The developers have stressed that this recent release is more than just a makeover. This is Tomb Raider the way it was meant to be played. The game is also titled “Tomb Raider:Definitive Edition”.
This Tomb Raider reboot allows the player to experience the personal growth and progression of the character that they have grown to love. Though initially Lara is fragile, she becomes stronger. The game borrows from other games such as uncharted with full blown actions sequences that will leave you on the edge of your seat. Not to mention the Actress voicing Lara, Camilla Luddington does a superb job in making Lara seem so real. The only negative thing I could say about this game is that it makes fast progress but other than that this a game worth owning, no matter which system you get it for.
