Lara Craft has always been tougher than life. The one girl who could stand up to men and trade blows with them, and the men would come off second best.
The Tomb Raider series, however, dwindled in quality over the years. Some of the worst adventure games ever are graced with the Tomb Raider title (Angel of Darkness anybody?). Crystal Dynamics have been tasked with the job of rebirthing the Tomb Raider series and taking it back to its former glory.
The rebirth sees the series going back to before the start. Borrowing many concepts from the exceptional Uncharted Games, the new Tomb Raider takes a more cinematic approach. Huge set pieces set in an intense story filled with treachery and emotion featuring a fragile Lara Craft sounds like a recipe to success!
The new trailer shows us a shivering Lara Craft starting a fire to try and get warm, hunting a deer for food, and trembling with fear when captured. Tomb Raider is set to take us on the adventure that made Lara Craft into the strong woman we now know. Will this be enough to pull the Tomb Raider name out of the pit it has put itself in? The game is set to come out on the 5th of March, 2013.
