    Tomb Raider: Anniversary

    Anniversary makes some mistakes along the way of reviving feelings of familiarity and nostalgia, but it's a decent ride.

    Lara Croft first jumped onto the gaming scene back in 1996, and she became one of the most recognized icons in gaming; thus, she gained the most recognition and fame among all female video game characters ever. Because... Read Full Review

    Tomb Raider: Underworld

    Being the sequel to Anniversary and Legends, Underworld ends this reboot trilogy in disappointing fashion.

    I used to play a lot of Tomb Raider when I was a child. The original game was one of the very first video games I ever played (I think it was third, behind Crash Bandicoot and Tekken). I have since played several other ... Read Full Review

    In its endeavor to bring gamers a hard game, it sometimes crosses the line between hard and cheap, but it's still solid

    In today's generation of gaming, it is not uncommon to see people complaining about how easy many video games are now compared to ten or twenty years ago. And it is true: video games are easier now than they used to be. ... Read Full Review
