Will Lara Croft return to do what she does best?
Despite being a longtime fan of the Tomb Raider franchise, I'll admit that I didn't love the 2013 game... because there weren't many tombs, and Lara wasn't raiding tombs that weren't there. Furthermore, the characterization of Lara herself was unfamiliar and thin, steering too much toward generic, vulnerable "likability" and away from the defined, iconic, steely character that fans like me had come to love.
There was nothing wrong with the Tomb Raider reboot as a game. It played smooth and had stunning graphics. To me, it just didn't feel like a Tomb Raider game, and Lara didn't feel like Lara.
With its E3 2015 behind-closed-doors presentation of Rise of the Tomb Raider, Crystal Dynamics promised a return to many of the things I felt were missing. In a voiceover, Lara even says that she feels like herself again. Heck, the very title of the game, Rise of the Tomb Raider, practically admits that she, in fact, wasn't the tomb raider the last time around.
And yes, they showed tombs being raided.
