Upcoming Tomb Raider (2013)

The first Tomb Raider game was launched in 1996, revolutionizing the gaming industry. It was outstanding in terms of graphics, gameplay, and storyline. Square Enix is now revamping the franchise, with the release of the new Tomb Raider. Yes, it's just called Tomb Raider now. The main character Lara Croft has undergone many changes, most noticeable would be the lack of resemblance to Angelina Jolie and a smaller chest. Although that is a slight disappointment, the game makes up for it in gameplay, story, and graphics. In the new Tomb Raider, Lara escapes from her previous lifestyle of having many tools readily available to her, and now has to make do with what she finds after her plane crashes while returning from a trip.
