That’s right Tomb Raider fans: Lara Croft is back. But this isn’t the impossibly-shaped sometimes uppity Lara Croft that we’ve previously been exposed to. This new and younger Lara Croft is full of self-doubt, but still manages to kick more butt than any previous incarnation of the character. The new Tomb Raider reboot shows us how Lara originally became the survivor and tomb raiding legend we’re familiar with.
Tomb Raider was ready for change. Not only was Lara’s appearance completely outdated and insulting to female gamers, but the action and adventure elements of the last few games have felt rather stale with storylines that seemed to flounder.
