It’s been way too long since I’ve spent quality time with Lara Croft. I’ve been a fan of Ms. Croft and her archeological adventures since a friend lent me a copy of Tomb Raider 3 back in middle school. The ability to play a game that focused not only on combat, but also on exploration and puzzle solving was novel and spoke to the part of me that dreamed of growing up to become Indiana Jones. The sense of excitement I got traversing perilous ruins inspired me to play all the Tomb Raider games that were released on the original Playstation console, read a few issues of the Tomb Raider comics published by Top Cow, and watch both Tomb Raider movies. However, by the time the series made the jump to the PS2, I had started to lose interest and found myself unimpressed by the direction it was moving in.
