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 sees a decent little bump in performance across the board. The average increase from 54 FPS to 57 FPS is nice at 1680 x 1050. Even, though, we're not at the 60 FPS number we like, the strong 43 FPS minimum makes us feel comfortable with the 57 FPS average.

 

Above that, while we see a boost in performance, the numbers are still too low for the game to be playable.
