Shadow Of The Tomb Raider
LARA CROFT STILL ISN’T FEELING LIKE HER OLD SELF
The trajectory of the rebooted series has, thus far, been a crash course coming-of-age story that was supposed to detail Lara’s ascent from ambitious adventurer to the embrace of her destiny as the Tomb Raider. We aren’t quite there yet mind, with Shadow Of The Tomb Raider seeing Lara marauding through sprawling jungle spaces in an effort to stop a forthcoming Mayan apocalypse. Eidos Montréal – taking over the reigns from Crystal Dynamics – seems to be building a darker, more violent and more solemn game experience here, though only time will tell if it can provide a suitable pay-off to what the trilogy has been slowly building towards.
