Tomb Raider - Review [GamingLives]

GamingLives takes a look at the oft-controversial reboot of the Lara Croft story.

"There exists a mantra born from a quote by a man named Eckhart Tolle that reads “Evolve or Die”. Though it was originally used to demonstrate that without reinvention mankind is doomed to repeat the same mistakes ad-infinitum, nowhere does this mantra seem more true than in the world of videogames. After a fourteen year delay that saw a company go under in the name of trying to keep up with the ever-moving goalposts instead of trying to surpass them, a tired, haggard Duke Nukem – once a cultural icon in the echelons of gaming - again asked us to Hail to the King, and instead saw lacklustre sales and poor critical reception as players instead hailed to the almighty dollar. Conversely, Lara Croft – one of the most recognisable characters in the industry – has been evolving, and the results make for one of the greatest swan-songs of this generation." (PC, PS3, Tomb Raider, Xbox 360) 9/10
