Shadow Of The Tomb Raider

LARA CROFT STILL ISN’T FEEL­ING LIKE HER OLD SELF

Games TM - - CONTENTS -

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.
