The much anticipated revamp of Tomb Raider has just been released today (March 5, 2013) for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC, and is already sending quite a buzz through the video gamer network.
Focusing on a younger version of the entrancing Lara Croft, our archeological heroine finds herself isolated on an island, forced to survive.
This look into the early life of our 20-something kick-butt lady is a step away from the older versions and more of a step into the direction of games such as the Call of Duty franchise in order to attract the more recent generations; players need not search for med-packs any longer and must spend less time solving puzzles and more time fighting for survival against the locals and the island itself. With this prequel to the life of Lara Croft, it is the first Tomb Raider game to earn itself a Mature and 18+ rating which means more blood and violence than previously seen.
Although Tomb Raider appeals to a younger group of gamers, there are still quite a few things that the Lara Croft die hards will enjoy if they're willing to look for them.
Tomb Raider brings to us a large, explorable map with breathtaking graphics and much to see. So snatch up the latest installment to the nearly two-decades-long franchise and channel your inner Tomb Raider.
