GR:Lara Croft is dead. This time, she was ripped apart by wolves. Death had also come in a variety of other forms before: boulders, bear traps, spikes to the throat--each over-the-top execution a display of vulnerability. These shocking moments were heavy-handed with their message, but it came across loud and clear: Lara Croft, the new Lara Croft, isn't a pistol-wielding superhero. She's an inexperienced adventurer caught in the middle of a harrowing sequence of events. The only thing more surprising than the brutality Lara endures during Crystal Dynamic's Tomb Raider reboot is just how polished the whole experience is. Tomb Raider is a fantastic game and an excellent origin story for one of gaming's original treasure seekers.
