Tomb Raider Preview: A More Vulnerable Lara Croft

Tomb Raider

We've got a Tomb Raider preview for you .The return of Lara Croft in the new Tomb Raider game is a cause for celebration, but rather than returning as the an overpowering figure as large as her legend, Croft is now much more vulnerable... and the more realistic take on the franchise probably means she won't be wielding dual-pistols with unlimited ammo.

Here's how Eric Eckstein described his time checking out the game:

"The demo I was part of took place early in the game; Lara's on her own, cold, starving and unsure how to proceed. She's not agile; losing her footing as she attempts to cross a log over a ravine, she's not the adventurer we're familiar with. Instead, she and the player are forced to figure out their next move. With some careful searching, you'll spot a bow and arrow hanging from a corpse above you. With the bow in hand, you can hunt the local wildlife, gutting a deer for survival or fighting off wolves that want a piece of you."
