It’s hard to believe that Lara Croft has been apart of our gaming lives for over a decade. She burst onto our screens in 1996 looking pointy, square and lifeless. Fast forward 12 years and just take a look at her now. Curvy, lifelike and smooth, Lara is looking better than ever and she’s now taking us through her latest game, Tomb Raider: Underworld.
Technically, this is the 9th instalment of the Tomb Raider series, but since ‘Anniversary’ was a remake of the very first Tomb Raider game, ‘Underworld’ is known as the 8th in the series. This whole adventure is based around Lara trying to get to a place called Avalon, a place where her mother can be found, even though she’s apparently dead. To get Avalon, Lara must travel through the Mediterranean Sea, Coastal Thailand, Croft Manor, Southern Mexico, Jan Mayen Island and the Arctic Sea. Each of these places contains enemies and mind bending puzzles to figure out before you can go any further.
