(PG-13 Language) Whoa, Lara Croft actually raids a tomb in this gameplay video for Rise of the Tomb Raider. There’s something a bit off about her movement – it’s like she’s skipping frames – but otherwise this looks awesome.
The sequel to the 2013 reboot is still going for cinematic action, but this new Lara Croft keeps things exciting with stealth gameplay and odds extremely stacked against her. More games need to have crafting without menus.
Lara Croft’s ascent from frightened young woman to hardened survivor is explored in the “Turning Point” trailer for Tomb Raider; we see her washed ashore on a dark island after a brutal storm at sea.
Lara Croft’s latest adventure might be one of the better downloadable games of the year. Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light comes out on XBLA on Aug 18, 2010; PC and PSN versions follow in Sept.
The original Tomb Raider herself gets seen from a whole new angle in this isometric co-op puzzler/beat ’em up. Coming to XBLA, PSN and Steam this Summer for just $15 bucks.
