PC/PS3/Xbox 360, $89.95 ★★★★ This gritty re­boot of the Lara Croft se­ries is not the Tomb Raider of old. More ac­tionori­ented and, at times, shock­ingly vi­o­lent, Lara’s lat­est sees the young ad­ven­turer ship­wrecked on a mys­te­ri­ous Ja­panese is­land and tak­ing on well-armed sol­diers and more su­per­nat­u­ral threats. Ex­plo­ration and puz­zle­solv­ing take a back seat to fire­fights and spec­tac­u­lar set pieces. For those seek­ing an ex­pe­ri­ence that skews more to­wards ac­tion than ad­ven­ture, Tomb Raider is hard to beat.
