The original Lara Croft: Tomb Raider was one of the titles to propel gaming directly into the mainstream, thanks mainly to groundbreaking graphics, unique, quality gameplay, and a fetching heroine. The series has since had its share of ups and downs, but the newly released Tomb Raider (which arrives nearly 20 years after the OG), based on my brief time with it, seems to offer a fresh approach and quality boost the franchise sorely needed.
