Ahhhh good old Lara Croft…. I have been playing with Lara Croft since back in 1996 on my most reliable Saturn.  A woman that does what you tell her even if it means she will fall to her death and roll about like a rag doll. It is that level of loyalty that keeps on bringing people back for more. At least that as well as the great gameplay, storylines and graphics. I know she has had more extreme makeovers than a Kentucky fried porn star but she has always been pleasing on the eye and easy to handle.

I think that the general consensus is that the latest installment of Tomb Raider reaches back to its routes. I had gone off Tomb Raider because the game became more about platforming and less about puzzles. Now the puzzles are back it has rekindled my interest in the game and to keep that going. On Tuesday the 24th of February the first of two pieces of DLC became available, Tomb Raider: Beneath the Ashes.

This new adventure brings Lara back to the somewhat damaged Croft Manor where she will discover a huge array of undiscovered caverns. This subterranean area was used by Lara’s father to safeguard and hide a deadly source of power. In addition to these age old crypts, the DLC brings you six new costumes and 125Gs for our inner achievement junkie.
