WC - Tomb Raider Review

WC - When it was first announced that Crystal Dynamics were going to reboot the Tomb Raider franchise, there was a mixture of scepticism and excitement. Lara Croft’s origin story is one that hasn’t really been explored and the character’s development from a vulnerable young woman into a hardened survivor would have been a welcoming experience.

However, the term ‘reboot’ made a lot of people anxious.Where it is one thing to make a prequel, it is another entirely to restart a franchise, potentially configuring the classical characteristics of one of the gaming’s most iconic heroines. Yet I am thrilled to report back that Crystal Dynamics have achieved something that looks gorgeous, plays brilliantly and has a story that redefines Lara while retaining what makes her Croft. (PC, PS3, Tomb Raider, Xbox 360) 5/5

I've been waiting for someone to bring it up under new analysis, since the game is now released and you can judge it yourself, but it seems this topic is destined to disappear like it never existed. Remember when people were calling out Crystal Dynamics for submitting to sexism when the only thing we knew about the 'rape' scene was that it existed? Christ. I hate what political correctness does to the media, And now no one is going to admit they were wrong about Tomb Raider? I just finished the game and thought it was absolutely stunning, and the scene in question was like one QTE out of the whole ~15 hour experience, and I felt it was a very appropriate sequence.

I feel guilty as a male for bringing this up, but I don't think CD did anything wrong.

EDIT: Excellent read: http://lootspace.hostavo.co...
