MTV- Tomb Raider Review

MTV:Strictly speaking, Lara doesn't do a lot of tomb raiding in Crystal Dynamics' gritty reboot, but then "Tomb Raider" isn't at all like the games that came before it. The blandly-intrepid, gun-toting explorer of the 90's (and a couple of failed entries this decade) has been replaced by a capable academic forced to learn to survive against the elements and crazed, desperate killers. Mechanically, narratively, and aesthetically, "Tomb Raider" has embraced the humanity of Lara and her circumstances, although it's sort of at the expense of the wonder and pulp-inspired fantasy of the original games. (PC, PS3, Tomb Raider 2013, Xbox 360) -
