I was skeptical when I learned of a Tomb Raider reboot set for release in 2013. Up to this point, I had all but given up on the franchise after Tomb Raider III in 1998 on the original Playstation. The first version was largely responsible for bringing me back into gaming from along with other popular hits such as Resident Evil, Ace Combat (formerly Air Combat), and Baseball. Tomb Raider was so simple and easy to learn, yet so full of depth, story, and it was also a fairly long game for its time. The gamer definitely got bang for the buck. After my disappointing stint with Tomb Raider III, my only other attempt was Tomb Raider: Anniversary, which was almost a mirror image of the first game in style and concept. I didn’t know that going into it, but I appreciated the nostalgic experience to the game; albeit a little boring. I passed on Tomb Raider: Underworld and after hearing positive reviews of Tomb Raider (2013) the reboot I decided to give it a try. And I am so glad I did.
Mik has been posting her favorite intros lately. In case you missed it, they are pretty cool posts. One of them, a few weeks ago, was from Overkill…one of my all-time favorite bands. It was nice to see them make her list…you know, for a Thrash metal band. I have since been paying more attention to intros and remember this classic from Overkill which will surely rate high on my list if I decide to make one. This song is from their classic self-titled album released in 1991. If you have never indulged in Overkill, I highly recommend this album. Enjoy the nice ominous intro and the rest of the song.
