We have adventured with Lara Croft many times before but this game just looks like a completely different animal. The developers have really changed the look and feel of the game and not to mention Lara herself. It looks dark and gritty and personally I love it.
The team at Crystal Dynamics haven’t just made visual changes to the game but have also fundamentally changed up the gameplay. They really tried to convey the struggle that Lara is going through during her perilous journey and by the looks of it, it has paid off. Your not marching around the game with some bullet proof character, Lara is human after all and her reactions to the world around her are in line with what you would expect to see from someone in real life.
Armed with only the raw instincts and physical ability to push beyond the limits of human endurance, TOMB RAIDER promises to deliver an intense and gritty story into the origins of Lara Croft and her ascent from a frightened young woman to a hardened survivor.
Lara Croft is a video game legend and changing up her appearance is risky and some purists may disagree, but I feel that they have made the right call and went with a good character design. Tomb Raider will be available on March 5th 2013 for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and Windows PC.
