Preview - Tomb Raider single player - Why you should have faith in the reboot - Tech Digest

A lot's been said about the 2013 Tomb Raider reboot so far, and not all of it positive. Sure, it's got production values to rival the Call of Duty series, Hollywood visuals and a crack team of developers that include people who've worked on triple-A games like Assassin's Creed, Gears of War and Red Dead Redemption. But there's also a fear that the sense of wonder and exploration that characterised the series at the height of its popularity has been relegated in favour of action set pieces, that Lara's been disempowered for the sake of an obligatory reboot origin story. And of course, the implications of *that* attempted rape scene on gaming's strongest female icon. (PC, PS3, Tomb Raider, Xbox 360)
