Tomb Raider has been released on 360 and been provided for us to preview/review by the publisher.

Believe it or not we are still playing it. Here are some extracts of what we made of it in chronological order:

"Tomb Raider and a new adventure for Lara..."

"Tomb Raider PS3 introduces a new Lara Croft who isn't the heroine you used to know, but may well be the right Lara Croft for 2013..."

Tomb Raider 360 Release

07/12/2010 09:30

Tomb Raider gets an origin story and a fresh new look. The new game, just announced, promises to take Lara Croft to new depths in her struggle to survive.

After the diminutive Lara Croft (XBLA) game comes a big budget Tomb Raider game. But more than just another iteration, this is a completely fresh look at the series.

Dropping any subtitle, Tomb Raider will be hoping for more success than the now swept under the carpet reboot of Prince of Persia. As you can see from the artwork, it takes Lara into gritty territory. Hunted rather than hunter, Croft is seen to wield a bow in the new game to fend of the various forces that pursuit her.

After being washed ashore from a ship wreck a young frightened Croft is on her own. The inexperienced and unwilling heroine has to push herself to the limit to survive the wilds. What proceeds is an origin story that promises to be as surprising as Croft's androgynous appearance.

Tomb Raider is expected to be released late 2011.

With so many different perspectives it can be hard to know where to start - a little like walking into a crowded pub. Sorry about that.

But so far we've not found a way to streamline our review output - there's basically too much of it. So, rather than dilute things for newcomers we have decided to live with the hubbub while helping new readers find the columnists they will enjoy.
