  • Blog Post: Breathtaking

    I remember playing the original Tomb Raider on PlayStation back in the late 90's and being completely fascinated by it. The exploration and sense of discovery was something very new to me at that young age as I had never played anything quite like it. Adventuring through long-forgotten ruins and... More
  • Blog Post: A Poor Man's Platformer

    I'm a year late but thanks to PS+ I managed to play and beat this supposed gem...and I am disappointed. Tomb Raider is a good game for sure with a pretty decent campaign that does a good job of getting rid of the eye candy association with the games and makes Lara more vulnerable (for some overly...

  • Blog Post: REVIEW: Tomb Raider 2013 (360)

    Take it from somebody who has never taken Lara Croft or the Tomb Raider series seriously. Say what you will about Lara Croft, the character has never appealed to me personally and I found her games to be clunky platformers with too simplistic puzzles and sloppy combat and her adventures to be trite ripoffs...

  • Blog Post: Lara Reborn

    Lara Croft is possibly the most well-known female videogame protagonist in the world, having appeared onto the action-adventure scene a full decade before Nathan Drake. With appearances in multiple games across various platforms, her characterization and the quality of the games has always been a bit... More
  • Blog Post: Best Tomb Raider game...ever....

    Once in a time long, long ago in a place far, far away....(ok so it wasn't that far from where I live now) I remember playing the original Tomb Raider, in all its "glory." Clunky controls, Irritating puzzles, and repeatedly falling to my death because "someone" didn't wanna... More
  • Blog Post: Tomb Raider - Welcome Back, Lara

    Lara Croft may be one of gaming's most influential female protagonists, but even her dual pistols and snappy dialogue weren't enough to save her from the impeding staleness the series has experienced in recent titles. Yes, it's time for a reboot. Reboots are sort of a wild card in the gaming... More
  • Blog Post: Tomb Raider's Back, and She's Better Than Ever

    Tomb Raider has been rebooted, and the series has never been better. This is the best Tomb Raider game ever made, and Crystal Dynamics has proven that they know Tomb Raider. The story is pretty good, and really is the poster girl for an origin story. It really shows where Lara came from and is very interesting... More
  • Blog Post: What can I say other than I loved this game!!! ^_^

    After the PSP and XBOX 360 versions started coming out we were all waiting for the series to come into it's own.... I can honestly say that with the scale of the island, the ability to truly climb and move through levels as you see it, the amazing cover mechanic and gunplay that give you moments... More
  • Blog Post: Proving That Not All Reboots Are Just Cash Ins

    When I first heard they were rebooting the Tomb Raider franchise I remember feeling excited but I slightly cringed initially as well. Tomb Raider holds a very special place amongst gaming nostalgia for me, Tomb Raider 2 was the first game I got for my PS1, way back in the day. In fact the first thing... More
  • Blog Post: A stunning example in a reboot getting it right

    Normal 0 false false false EN-US JA X-NONE Back in 1996, the original Tomb Raider was released for the Sega Saturn and introduced the world to a game it had never seen before. It showed us a 3D world filled with dangers and traps around every corner where we could pull off acrobatic maneuvers and stylish... More
  • Blog Post: Maverick Reviews: Tomb Raider 360

    Maverick Reviews: Tomb Raider My favorite game genres are Adventure, Platforming, and Stealth, hence why my three favorite gaming franchises are Uncharted, Metal Gear Solid and Assassin's Creed. The new reboot of Tomb Raider interested me for these very reasons. It was also marketed as a “survival... More
  • Blog Post: Tomb Raider was amazing!

    i love to play games that let me explore areas and see what they have in store for me to see and places to go. I love games like fallout 3 and skyrim for this reason and when i got tomb raider it gave me that same kick... and with its emotion in it just set if off to be one of my favorite games. one... More
  • Blog Post: Reclaiming Glory

    In my opinion Tomb Raider was a game that helped shape the action-adventure genre. Specifically the certain mix of treasure hunting, puzzle solving and shoot-em up action. The franchise may have lost some of their fans along the way and also gotten into a niche of providing the same type of story game... More
  • Blog Post: Tomb Raider - Review

    I’ll admit I was never a big fan of the original Tomb Raider . I enjoyed it when I was younger, but as the years progressed I realized how wonky the controls are and how truly bad the camera is. But one aspect of the game has withstood the test of time: the persona of Lara Croft. I never viewed... More
  • Blog Post: How a Reboot Should be Done!

    Reboot… that dreaded word causes many gamers to cringe. We don’t always take kindly to the retooling of some of the most popular games of our childhoods. Companies hoping to make a quick buck off of our nostalgia for the games of yesteryear though seem to believe they can put out a half... More
  • Blog Post: Spot on review

    I completely agree with this review on all points. Such a well made game, I've not enjoyed a modern AAA game in such a long time since Far Cry 3 and even then the actual story mode on that was sub-par (I prefer just going off to do my own thing.) I've never really liked a TR game before but this... More
  • Blog Post: Tomb Raider

    Note: I did not purchase the game today, but instead pre-ordered it. For you normal pre-orderers though, I did not received my copy midnight of the previous day before the normal release window, but instead managed to secure a copy of the Australian version of the game, which officially released as of...
