Tomb Raider: Where are the Tombs?

Let’s start by saying the newly rebooted Tomb Raider is a fantastically fluid, beautiful looking action game. It’s as close as we’ve ever got to playing a big, box-office smashing action movie in video game form. Including all the eye-candy and quickened heart beat inducing scenes that Hollywood provides. But how would you feel if you were watching a movie and the same set pieces repeated themselves identically five times? What about if a movie told you the main character was a victim, an oppressed downtrodden weakling, but then showed that character slaughtering hundreds of innocent people. Would you have the Orwellian fortitude to doublethink at such an intense level? Would you have the patience to watch a six-hour long movie showing a person sliding down a cliff over and over and over again?
