Everything Tomb Raider Got Right

By now I’m certain that you have one way or another heard about the curse of movies based on video games. You know, the one where movies that are based on video games have bombed at the box office? Yeah, that one. Since then, there has been a presumption that if a movie is based on any type of game, then it will most certainly be a campy, outdated, poorly translated, epic failure of a movie. The question is, does the new Tomb Raider movie fall under that description?

As always, a spoiler alert/tag is in order. So if you have yet to watch the movie or play the game, then its best to save this article first and get back to it once you’re done.

Assassin’s Creed: Origins A Definitive Review

So, after 80+ hours of gameplay, I finally finished Assassin’s Creed: Origins (AC: Origins), and it was GREAT. Before any further discussion, I just want to make one thing straight, I am not your “textbook gamer,” I do love playing video games, I am willing to spend 20+ hours of my life everyday (if I have to) for a game that is worth my time. I can appreciate most game genres and is willing to try new ones, I can say I’m fairly good at it, in sum, I can say that I am just a casual player, a “plain Jane” playing a well-known video game franchise, so please, cut me some slack.

The first Assassin’s Creed game that I have ever played was Assassin’s Creed II (AC2), and I fell in love with the game immediately. When news of the release of AC: Origins came out, I was ecstatic, I cannot wait for the actual day of its release to come. Now that I finished the game let me share my feelings and experience about the game. Stern warning: SPOILERS AHEAD!
