Tomb Raider is a revolutionary 3D adventure that made popular the third-person perspective, just like DOOM popularised first-person shooter games.
You play as Lara Croft, English aristocratic heiress turned amateur archaeologist of the Indiana Jones variety. Lara is extremely fit and agile, and also proficient with various firearms, all of which is essential in her adventures. Contacted by the mysterious Jacqueline Natla, Lara sets off to find pieces of an ancient artifact scattered throughout the world.
Tomb Raider is often described as a third-person shooter, but you will find more adventuring and puzzle-solving elements here, comparable to Prince of Persia, than actual shooting, although you'll regularly face various baddies, mostly dangerous animals and supernatural beings. The playable demo was released in two separate parts that can be played in any order, but together showcase one of the early levels from the full game.
