Description: Become Lara Croft in Tomb Raider VR: Lara’s Escape, an interactive cinematic VR experience based on the upcoming Tomb Raider movie (March 2018). Pursued by Trinity soldiers, Lara Croft’s only means of escape is to descend into an ancient tomb. Use Lara’s flashlight to explore crumbling caverns in the dangerous, trap-filled cave. Wield Lara’s bow and climbing axe to escape capture as you rappel, climb and zip-line to safety. Tomb Raider, starring Academy-Award winner Alicia Vikander (Jason Bourne, The Danish Girl).

Review: While incredibly short and little more than an interactive trailer for the new Tomb Raider movie this is still one of the better movie tie-in VR experiences. While a little bit of drama, some great 3D graphics and even a few little jump-scares this ‘experience’ has it all. Sure it would have been nice to have a full Tomb Raider game in VR, but for now, I think this will do quite nicely. At least its free so its got to be worth a go!
