This Zoey or <heroine> review series began withTomb Raider: Anniversary (see Zoey or Lara…?).
Now we’re going back to our roots to discover if the Tomb Raider reboot is everything you’ve wanted in a cinematic campaign. (Answer: it is!)
|Weapon of choice|
The silent killer (yep, it’s a bow—it’s awesome)
L4D2 gives Zoey melee weapons, but she still loves pistols
finally a good use for GPU physics: hair by TRESSFX
mods give Zoey an all new look (and many more)
|Looks better wet|
Lara submerged in blood
Zoey covered in goop
Limited edition controller (realistic battle damage!)
You’ll have to make your own…
So is Tomb Raider worth your dosh? (What is dosh anyway?) If being able to tell your mates “yeah, I got lost on an island with other survivors and I wasn’t watching TV” is as important to you as it is to me, then yes.
In truth, this is one of the best cinematic, story driven single-player games I’ve ever played (if not THE best). If you like that type of game experience, you’ll love this. (It’s got multiplayer but I haven’t tried that.)
