Tomb Raider PS3 review & gameplay vid – Uncharted territory a far cry from series' roots OPM

OPM: If series reboots are the new black (and let’s face it, it’s either that or brutal melee takedowns), then it’s safe to say Lara wears hers well. And while this origins story leaves many of the franchise’s traditions at the door, Crystal Dynamics’ cobble job is thankfully far more Batman than Conan; more Street Fighter than Duke Nukem. It cribs heavily from the top dogs in its own as well as other genres, but it does so sensibly and effectively, while throwing in a handful of neat new features along with an enjoyable (if not always totally coherent) shipwreck storyline. (Crystal Dynamics, PS3, Square Enix, Tomb Raider) 8/10
