I have to admit, I’ve played one Tomb Raider game during the Dreamcast era and didn’t like it. Since then, I have been turned off by any and every game in the series but that has changed with the latest game simply titled, Tomb Raider. Tomb Raider looks to be a reboot in the series and a much needed one.
So far I’ve been impressed by everything I’ve seen of this game. When I first saw the redesigned Lara Croft on the cover of GameInformer magazine a few months back, I was taken aback by how great she looked. To sound nerdy, she looks beautiful but also gritty enough to believe that such a gorgeous lady would be able to survive harsh obstacles. The latest CG trailer shows that off stunningly; Lara Croft is a survivor and this trailer proves it. The trailer does not show us any actual gameplay but we are sure to see it in action once E3 officially kick starts. From the looks of it the gameplay seems to be filled with survival elements.
The bad news – Tomb Raider isn’t due out until Fall 2012. The long wait continues, until then check out the trailer below and let us know what you think. Also, look out for Lara using Dr. Dre beats headphones and an Iphone 4.
