Our top pick of the week?

Shadow of The Tomb Raider
14/09/18

Lara Croft has earned her place in the hallowed halls of gaming legend and no one out there has had a reboot quite this successful.

With the third instalment in the newly reinvigorated raider of Tombs we are bringing a close to the first chapter as she goes from fresh faced Lara to the seasoned adventure we met back in the 90’s.
