Battered and hungry, Lara Croft spots a bow tied to a dangling corpse. In Tomb Raider, players have to climb on to a building and hop on to a tree branch. Lara clumsily lunges towards the body and misses the first time. On the next grab she pulls the body forward and then tumbles off the tree along with the corpse.

Frightened, Lara looks away as she pulls the bow from the body. Her next task is finding food and a young deer just happens to prance by. When you’re hunting the deer you have to walk so you don’t scare it off by making too much noise.

  • Not sure if it’s the developers’ intentions or not, but the way they try to emphasize Lara’s powerlessness and (unintended) clumsiness is starting to make this game look like “Dojikko -The Game“.

    Or it might be just me.

      well its not really cute because she gets hurt,alot!
      “Break the cutie-the game”

      • Yeah… That sounds like a more accurate description.

        • XiaomuArisu

           TvTropes destroys our livesXD

          • puchinri

             And then reconstructs them! Just like tropes~.

    • puchinri

       The clumsiness applies, but the powerlessness has unfortunate implications. It’s at this weird place now. Weirder than before, anyway.

  • HassanJamal

    She didnt get it from the dude from Crysis 3?

  • Oh. And here I thought they were just handing out bows at E3.
