Tomb Raider Missed Out on The Things That Made Lara Croft Great (Review)

Tomb Raider Missed Out on The Things That Made Lara Croft Great (Review)

It might not be fair, but I’m going to be comparing this Tomb Raider to the Laura Croft Tomb Raider in 2001 for the whole review.  Because if you’re going to reboot something, you really should make it better. And I’ll spoil the surprise right here: this Tomb Raider wasn’t better at all.  You may well be sitting there thinking ‘duh- I saw the trailer’, and you’d be right.

It’s that time of year again when we all argue over what game was the best out of all the amazing games released in the months past. But how can one game really be better than another?
