Tomb Raider

Tomb Raider, we all love a bit of Lara Croft. Crystal Dynamics have taken a completely different approach to what anyone could have expected for the next in the Tomb Raider series! Rebooted and set before any of the Tomb Raider games, Crystal Dynamics have changed Lara’s status from a explorer to a surviver.

 

 

 Lara’s shipwrecked and abandoned on a island where adventure is no longer her main objective.. the need to survive is! After the shipwreck Lara is captured and suspended from a ceiling in a unknown cavern. Looking around you know this is no regular tomb we’ve seen in previous games. This is a cavern of a psychotic  madman. After swinging back and forth Lara manages to burn the rope from one of the torches attached to the wall and frees herself. The fall is not as successful as you hope, Lara falls on to a spike, giving you the new feeling that Lara is not invincible and making the player think wisely before making the next move! Lara is faced with more human  puzzles throughout the  game, not the type were used to but one’s you seriously have to think realistically about! walking around the Den lara then finds trying to escape will be harder then you think! barrels which will explode need lighting but surrounded by water! Lara will need to find bits of junk from around the Den which can be set alight and sent to a Lara-made mechanism to make an exit!

after  the exit Lara is faced with location outside – not a pritty picture. 

Watch the debut trailer below and see what you think to the new Tomb Raider Reboot!!
