The ambitious project – titled The Dark Angel – has been […]

Great news! We finally have some details on the Shadow of the Tomb Raider PC features. Specifically, a tech breakdown from Nvidia GeForce – the GPU manufacturer that promises to deliver a stellar Lara Croft product when the title launches in September. In a beautiful trailer (that will only make sense to those of a computing sensibility) Nvidia reveals that the manufacturer’s […]

My cup runneth over! Keeping up with all of the Tomb Raider news at the moment is a difficult task, with multiple stories dropping on a daily basis. However, this little piece is particularly exciting… Square Enix has announced that a special Tomb Raider board game is going to be launching in Q1 2019. Titled Tomb Raider Legends: The Board Game, the title promises to […]

Top 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.

Is this the worst Tomb Raider game ever made?

As a staunch Tomb Raider fan, I feel a bit treacherous writing a post like this. Not unlike Lara herself, recklessly prising the Amulet of Horus from the Tomb of Seth, it’s not my place, and I could unleashed a world of trouble. How can I write a post about the ‘worst’ Tomb Raider game of all time? That implies […]

Shadow of the Tomb Raider music is unleashed!

Square Enix has unleashed the Shadow of the Tomb Raider music on the world! Well, some of it. Last week, three new tracks were uploaded onto the official Tomb Raider YouTube account, offering a tantalising glimpse into the atmos that’s going to envelope us in Lara’s latest adventure. It’s all been realised by a “unique music team” led by a […]

Is there a problem with the Shadow of the Tomb Raider graphics?

Historically, Tomb Raider graphics have been at the forefront of innovation. When the original game was released in 1996, its lushly-realised caverns and valleys sent shockwaves through the world of gaming. Then, in 2003, Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness – whilst glitchy – looked absolutely incredible. Similarly, 2013’s Tomb Raider reboot raised the bar with some noticeably strandy hair atop […]

Honest Lara Croft video lands!

Screen Junkies have released an ‘honest’ Lara Croft video. Specifically, a trailer for the Tomb Raider movie starring Alicia Vikander. Actually, they’ve gone about it slightly differently this time. The team over at Screen Junkies have combined Lara Croft’s latest outing with the science fiction epic Pacific Rim: Uprising, making a spoofvertisement that pokes gentle fun at both franchises. According to […]

Top 5 scariest Tomb Raider levels!

Tomb Raider levels are not generally known for their tranquillity. Unless you feel a strange sense of calm drift over you every time a knife-wielding psychopath leaps out of the shadows. (I’m thinking Dragon’s Lair for the uninitiated. Hardly a snooze fest.) That being said, the Tomb Raider series is peppered with moments of beauty. Remember the beach from Tomb Raider […]
