This classic video game is where it all began. In November 1996, players around the world got their first glimpse of intrepid British adventurer Lara Croft. Tomb Raider was hailed by critics and players alike as a ground-breaking action-adventure title and has gone on to sell more than 8 million copies.
The second installment in the Tomb Raider video game series, released in November 1997, Lara goes after the legendary Dagger of Xian, an artifact rumored to give whoever possesses it the power of the dragon. Lara isn't the only one after this treasure - the Fiamma Nera, a cult led by the megalomaniacal Marco Bartoli, will stop at nothing to get there first.
Lara Croft returns in another action-packed adventure. We pick up her trail in India, where she's hunting for an artifact, the legendary Infada Stone. While following the Ganges downriver, she runs into a Scottish scientist, one Dr. Willard, who is also looking for the stone. The search for the remaining artifacts takes her into Nevada's infamous Area 51, to a tropical island in the South Pacific and home to England. After finding all the artifacts, Lara heads for Antarctica, where the plot thickens.
After her adventures in the previous game, Lara Croft is missing in Egypt and presumed dead. Those closest to her gather together at the Croft estate on a grey, rainy day for a memorial service in her honor. Afterwards, the friends sit quietly together and reminisce about Lara's past exploits that have until now remained a secret.
