I’m a rarity in the gaming world in that despite some two decades of gaming I have never played the Tomb Raider series before. Except for the utterly forgettable movies, I had no pre-conceived notions or opinions about the franchise that would...

Ten years on, our favourite all-action archaeologist continues to blitz away the enemy in style. Lara Croft: started well; coasted for a bit; got dull; went really downhill; regained her footing; then became quite reasonable again. Thats a potted...

Lara Croft gets a wash and brush-up for 2007. Good to see Lara donning her hot pants again in this fine reboot of the first Tomb Raider. The newest game in the long-running franchise is here, and oddly enough it owes most to its oldest relation, the...

International Review By Tweak.dk on 5
