Tomb Raider is an action-adventure platform video game. Published by Square Enix, Tomb Raider is the fifth title developed by Crystal Dynamics in the Tomb Raider franchise. As the first entry in a new Tomb Raider continuity, the game is a reboot that emphasizes the reconstructed origins of the culturally influential lead character Lara Croft. Tomb Raider was released on 5 March 2013 for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Microsoft Windows to universal critical acclaim.

Tomb Raider manages to see a bit of a performance increase, and the jump at 1680 x 1050 from 44 FPS to 52 FPS is a good one. While we're not at that 60 FPS number we normally like to hit, the fact we've got a 37 FPS minimum means that we're kind of borderline for what we would consider playable; you may or may not choose to adjust the detail slightly to bring that average up higher.

 

Above that, though, you can see that the numbers just aren't where we need them to be.
