LONELY PLANET

Games TM - - TOMB RAIDER -

01 With Lara’s lat­est glo­be­trot­ting ad­ven­ture Ei­dos Mon­tréal has gone all out in try­ing to rep­re­sent the lo­cales – and cul­tures – shown to play­ers that bit more than just a thin stereo­type. An early in­di­ca­tion of this is Croft’s trip through a Día de los Muer­tos (Day of the Dead) celebration in Cozumel, Mexico – the en­vi­ron­ment is rid­dled with neat lit­tle touches and de­tails that make it pop and bring the scene to life. It’s gor­geous, and as close as many of us will get to wit­ness­ing the ac­tual hol­i­day, though there is al­ways the worry of ex­o­ti­fi­ca­tion and how that could im­pact how things are pre­sented – though so far, the signs are all pos­i­tive. And gor­geous. Did we men­tion gor­geous?
