Crystal Dynamics' Tomb Raider reboot is a resounding success.
Tomb Raider's origins began on the PlayStation way back in 1996. Since that time, series heroine Lara Croft has become a household name, and certainly the most popular female lead in video games. With over ten games in the series, as well as two movies featuring Angelina Jolie, Tomb Raider has endured much longer than some of its detractors could ever have believed. However, with age comes the need for reinvention. Gaming has matured since the dawn of the franchise - clunky tank controls and impossibly proportioned female protagonists just won't cut it any more.
