. My experience with the Tomb Raider series is limited to a brief time spent playing Tomb Raider 2 on the PSX but unfortunately (or fortunately depending on the particular title) I haven't played a Tomb Raider game in a while. I have ridden the Tomb Raider ride though. Maybe this weekend I'll take Miss Croft on a wild ride, it is free after all.
