Since we're going to be playing tomb raider for class, I decided to do some research because I know nothing about the game. The website http://www.tombraider.com/ description of the game is "Tomb Raider explores the intense and gritty origin story of Lara Croft and her ascent from a frightened young woman to a hardened survivor. Armed only with raw instincts and the ability to push beyond the limits of human endurance, Lara must fight to unravel the dark history of a forgotten island to escape its relentless hold." Lara Croft's only power is to go beyond the normal human endurance. That would only be slightly helpful on an adventure where you need to fight people. In the trailer, her outfit doesn't seem too revealing. She is wearing pants and a tank top, and doesn't seem to be depicted unrealistically. Two of the older versions of the tomb raider game were adapted into successful movies, so they obviously attracted a lot of attention. I'm not sure which version of the game we will be playing for class, so if it isn't the most recent version that is shown on the website then it will be interesting to compare what Lara Croft in the version we're playing looks like versus Lara Croft in the new version.
