Tomb Raider’s reboot hit us the same year I started university, so emotions were already riding high, but as soon as I dove into Lara’s world once more I felt a little more at ease. I don’t think she felt more at ease, due to all the horrific deaths I accidentally put her through, but I really needed to hang out with an old friend during a massive change in my life, so her re-appearance was a welcome one. This new entry explorers yet another origin story for the daughter of a rich man turning into an icon. It seems the children of rich men always turn to a life of fighting the big bad, so it was probably either become a hardened adventurer to unravel the secrets of Yamatai or turn into a British member of the Batfamily. We see Lara cry over killing a deer one minute and then absolutely not caring about slaughtering five men in one go the next. To be honest, while it’s not incredibly coherent, it is a big mood. The re-reboot focuses on Lara not quite being the … [Read more...] about Have You Played… Tomb Raider (2013)?

Tomb with a view For all the bruisings, beatings and impalings that Lara Croft endures in the recent rebooted trilogy, the real victim was Tomb Raider’s sense of scale. Everything became crushed down to deliver fidelity. There were temples, sure, but you viewed them from cramped tunnels as you scurried past guards, and towering structures were only seen from the extreme close-up of a climbing wall or the long-distance photo op as you were shepherded along ziplines. Yamatai, Siberia and Peru are vast landscapes you view from a thin corridor of interaction. And even then control is wrestled away with endless QTEs. Returning to Tomb Raider: Underworld’s gargantuan locations is like stepping off an EasyJet flight and feeling the blood rush back to your ankles. The opening level has you diving to the seabed and watching a temple loom out of the murk. Later there’s a temple entrance so big you need to use a motorbike to navigate smaller temples around the outside of it. … [Read more...] about Have You Played… Tomb Raider: Underworld?

Locking snooty butlers inside freezers. Appreciating some seriously decadent architecture. Putting antique garden ornaments in peril while running an athletic obstacle course. Down the years, Lara and I have been involved in all sorts of hijinks while exploring her opulent English mansion, but we’ve never teamed up to take on anything quite like this. Rise Of The Tomb Raider’s 20th anniversary celebration DLC sheds an entirely different light on Croft Manor, and this time things are personal... and, y’know, a teensy bit dead. I recently dove into the £7.99 expansion after enjoying the hell out of Crofty’s Siberian adventure when it launched in 2015. So it may have been a while since I dropped in on Lara and her grizzly bear chums, but I’m pretty sure she didn’t have quite so many problems with the undead when our paths last crossed. Yes, this DLC has a vaguely derivative zombie mode – enter Lara’s Nightmare. Stop rolling your eyes, … [Read more...] about Breaking out the party hats and cake for Rise Of The Tomb Raider’s undead birthday celebration
