“After the achievement of bringing credibility back to the Tomb Raider franchise with Tomb Raider: Legend, Crystal Dynamics turns its sight towards recreating the classic acrobatic adventure of the original Tomb Raider game.

The question is can the old girl wear those tight shorts and thrill gamers around the world once again? Well there is only one way to find out.
