Tomb Raider is scoring well, with an 88 on Metacritic. For what seems like the first time in a decade, Lara Croft is actually worth talking about as more than a silly Angelina Jolie movie, even if I did enjoy them. The fact remains, while this isn't the classic Tomb Raider we know and love, it is indeed a good game. For a reboot, that's really saying something since it's hard to ever bring back any franchise, let alone add some fundamental changes to the established formula along the way. The new trailer attempts to bring out the survivor in me, and I admit it's gotten me more excited for the game than maybe I should be. Several people have pointed out flaws in the game, but for whatever is wrong with it... it just does so much so well that it's hard to really keep this game down. Lara Croft, you might finally have won me over.
