I love seeing how Lara has evolved over the series and I can’t wait to play as her at her peak, even if things do go wrong. After seeing one of the few classic women gaming icons go through a bit of a seedy phase this feels like redemption.
I’ve got a holiday in Mexico planned for later this year, though hopefully my trip won’t be as apocalyptic as Lara’s seems to be. It’s great to see her start to get overconfident and make mistakes. All the best characters have flaws.
I must admit to a soft spot for the Lara of old, but they certainly seem to be beavering away on this one to make it a hotbed of intrigue and physical excellence. I think it may be a bigger hit than the recent
Tomb Raider movie.
