Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Lost Cult E. E. Knight
Publisher: Random House Publishing Group
Soon betrayed by her employer, Lara Croft travels to Greece, . Inspired by the games, published by Ballantine Books: The Amulet of Power (2004), by Mike Resnick;; The Lost Cult (2004) by E. Some die and some are captured by the Solarii Brotherhood, a violent cult of criminals, mercenaries and shipwreck survivors. There are a lot of influences at work in this Tomb Raider reboot – Metroid, Bioshock, Lost, Uncharted, Prince of Persia – but the one's I keep coming back to are Indy's darkest episode crossed with cinema's ultimate one-man army. This is a dark, gritty, bloody adventure that tells the story of how Lara Croft went from a frightened, untested academic to the hardened raider of tombs we all know and love. Rather than approaching Shipwrecked on the dangerous island of Yamatai, home of a violent and crazed cult, Lara's adventure of survival is one that pushes her both physically and emotionally in order to save her friends. And being hunted in a jungle will definitely remind folks of The Hunger Games and of course the idea of a mysterious pacific island that will not allow its inhabitants to leave (even invoking a voice in the sky moment) will resonate with fans of JJ Abrams “Lost”. Tomb Raider had the potential to be the reviving breath of air to a series that lost its way but some of the design choices set back the game and limit what could have been a contender for my personal game of the year. The Lara Croft we have come to know is the face of Angelina Jolie who played Lara Croft in the movie Lara Croft: Tomb The group is determined to find the lost kingdom of Yamatai, an island in the Dragon's Triangle off the coast of Japan. RELIC HUNTER (1999-2002) – Before the Lara Croft movies, but obviously after the original Tomb Raider video game, came this fantastic syndicated series. Lara Croft is a Tomb Raider, an archaeologist who explores ancient sites in search of valuable artifacts, who is hired to retrieve an artifact from a tomb in Peru, which turns out to be one of three parts of the Atlantean Scion. For those of you that do not know who she is, does Tomb Raider ring a bell? Knight; and; The Man of Bronze (2005) by James Alan Gardner. Crystal Dynamics new self-titled Tomb Raider definitely falls into the re-imagining category, introducing us to a very different Lara Croft but capturing the core feeling of the early titles and building upon them.
