Shadow of the Tomb Raider: Square Enix sees net sales decline

Disclaimer: this is going to be the least mathematical financial analysis you have ever read. Enjoy! So I’m sure you’ve all lost loads of sleep poring over the finer details of Square Enix’s six month financial report(!) which appears to paint a somewhat negative monetary picture if you’re a shareholder / company exec / person who understands money. In short, Square […]

Tomb Raider: The Dark Angel Kickstarter relaunches

Composer Peter Connelly has relaunched the Kickstarter campaign for Tomb Raider: The Dark Angel Symphony. The original Kickstarter closed last night after falling short of its £180,000 target, but fans have been thrown a lifeline with a renewed campaign, as Peter Connelly explains in his latest video… For those of you unfamiliar with the project, it’s an ambitious re-imagining of the soundtracks […]

Shadow of the Tomb Raider discount prompts backlash

Shadow of the Tomb Raider has seen a spike in negative reviews on Steam following a reduction in the game’s price. In the UK, at least, it’s now possible to achieve a whopping 47 per cent discount on the Croft Edition bundle – which includes a wallpaper, skills booster, season pass, game soundtrack, and three weapons / outfits – and as […]

The painful memories of The Angel of Darkness

Anybody who was a Tomb Raider fan in 2002 will know what a painful time it was. Well – painful and desperately exciting. Gamers around the world were eagerly awaiting the release of (deep breath) Lara Croft: Tomb Raider – The Angel of Darkness, the franchise’s PS2 debut and a game that was supposed to radically re-invigorate the popular series. A couple of […]

Tomb Raider: The Dark Angel Kickstarter launches

The Kickstarter campaign for Peter Connelly’s The Dark Angel Symphony has now launched. “I have the cash, but I don’t deal with the monkey.” Actually, I’m still deciding which tier I’m going to support. Hmm. I like the idea of attending a studio recording… Anyway, for those of you who haven’t heard about The Dark Angel, the aim of the project is […]

Defending TR5: Why Tomb Raider Chronicles is amazing

It’s fair to say that, if you were to get a group of Tomb Raider fans together in a room and ask them what their favourite Lara Croft title is, not many people would cite Tomb Raider Chronicles (or TR5) as their number one fave. It’s considered by some to be uninspired, too short, too easy, and a cash-in. Indeed, I’ve yet to see […]

The 5 best underwater Tomb Raider levels

With Shadow of the Tomb Raider just one month away, the internet has been a flurry of excitement over the fact that Lara Croft can finally swim! I say “finally” – Lara has been proficient at the breath-stroke since 1996, but the current iteration of my favourite archaeologist has been a little slower to master the skill. Anyway, this seemed like the perfect time […]

You will die in Shadow of the Tomb Raider

When a video description features the words “terrifying,” “deadly,” “brutal” and “darkest,” you know you’re not about to watch a furry kittens video. The latest footage from Shadow of the Tomb Raider shows off some of the pant-wettingly horrific stuff that Lara Croft will come across on her low-profile perambulation to avert the apocalypse. Check it out… As you can see, […]

Top 5 hardest Tomb Raider levels!

When I talk to people who have never played a Tomb Raider title, their assumption is usually that Lara Croft games are mindless endeavours with an unhealthy pre-occupation with the female form. Trying to convince people that these are intelligent, story-driven action-adventures, crafted with artistic genius, often makes me sound like I’m trying to justify my teenaged obsession with an exploitative franchise.
