New Tomb Raider Preview

So the new Tomb Raider is set to release in March of 2013 and is looking very nice. So far the visuals look spectacular and the game play seems to have gotten a bit of an up grade. Gone are the days of slow moving Lara Croft that wouldn’t clear gaps because you either jumped too early or your mad button mashing didn’t register with the game. The story looks pretty engaging but the more I see the more I am starting to think I have seen this recently…*cough* Far Cry 3.

However, as good as it looks I’m not sure how high I’m gonna get my hopes up. The last couple of Tomb Raider games had a lot of hype behind them and were complete disappointments. Another concern is that this is obviously not the same Lara Croft that we all know and love. She is much younger here and isn’t the weapons and survival expert that we are use to. However, this is apparently one of the shining features of the game. Gaining survival, weapons, and combat experience and turning her into a complete bad ass. I like the idea, but it remains to be seen how well they pull this whole thing off.

Anyways, here is what you all came here to see. Enjoy!
