Rise Of The Tomb Raider Review

I'm a great admirer of the 2013 Tomb Raider reboot. I went in with low expectations after previous mediocre attempts by Lara's handlers, and what I found was an incredibly well presented adventure, that I actually enjoyed equally as much as any entry in the Uncharted series. It was no surprise that Uncharted was topping everyone's lists for 'Best Action | Adventure' title on the PS3, so for the Tomb Raider franchise to take notes from Nathan Drake, was a smart move to make. The 2013 reboot took a new direction narratively, instead of throwing us into the role of tomb raider Lara Croft, we had to play out her growth as a character from her normal beginnings, and how she grew into her famous role through adverse conditions and the challenges that faced her on the island the game took place on.
