Tomb Raider’s Lara Croft: no longer just a pretty face

As a female lead character, Lara Croft has had to endure an unfair amount of polygonal stereotyping, crude sexualisation and exploitation, all of which combined have overshadowed almost everything the heroine has achieved in her rein at the helm of the Tomb Raider franchise, to the point where her relevance – and the Tomb Raider brand’s relevance itself – in modern gaming has been altogether questioned. (PC, PS3, Tomb Raider 2013, Xbox 360)

She was always more than just a pretty face but people tend to pay more attention to the physically attributes.

True. But still hope she looks better in the next Tomb Raider, on PS4 :)

People keep bashing the old games since the reboot and I don't understand why, they were some of the greatest games around. I like the reboot, I think it's a great game but there's no need to discard Lara's history and pass it off as something it never was in the first place.
For example "Tomb Raider’s Lara Croft: no longer just a pretty face".
-_-
The old games were much much more than that.
