From sex symbol to courageous hero: Hands-on with Lara Croft in Tomb Raider - GamesFIX

GamesFIX: Tomb Raider captures the essence of what has made Lara Croft such a timeless character and modernises her with a raw human quality.

If her development from struggling survivor into courageous hero continues throughout the twenty-hour journey, Tomb Raider should be one of 2013’s best games. (PC, PS3, Tomb Raider 2013, Xbox 360)

"For her to be 21 years old and never having really been on an adventure, for her to be thrust into a situation where she’s struggling to survive, we imagined her feeling scared and unsure of herself,"

So it went from strong and independent to weak and pathetic. I guess feminism applauds this transition, yet I have no idea why...

Btw, in Legend it shows that she led an adventurous life since the age of 6-7, where she "lost" her mother.

My concern is they seem more focused on changing her character by restarting her personality rather than explaining her transition as the confident, sexy, and adventurous tomb raider we know today.

I might wait a while, til the price drops and read multiple reviews before taking the plunge on this one.
