The Escapist: Tomb Raider Review An Icon Reborn

When you think of Lara Croft, you probably think about her trekking through the jungle, cartwheeling her way through trap-riddled tombs and gleefully picking off bad guys, twin pistols ablaze. What you probably don't do is picture her begging for someone to come rescue her. You don't picture her hugging her knees next to a fire, terrified and alone, or sobbing because she had to kill someone. The Lara of the new Tomb Raider isn't the plastic princess that we're used to, she's an ordinary girl who, when thrown into extraordinary circumstances, makes the decision to live through them. She's strong when the situation demands it, and fragile in the quiet moments between. She's scared, but determined, capable but unsure. She's marvelous. (PC, PS3, Tomb Raider, Xbox 360) 5/5
