Weirdness: First-Person Tomb Raider Will Make You Nauseous

Posted by Sammy Barker

Don't look down

Those of you without a head for heights may want to fondle your browser’s friendly ‘Back’ button, as this first-person footage of PlayStation icon Lara Croft may leave you a little worse for wear. The video – created by perspective adaptation specialist Filipe B. Costa – shows a classic Tomb Raider title through the eyes of Britain’s most buxom archaeologist, as she scales cliff faces Mirror’s Edge style and takes out grunts mid-somersault.

Truth be told, we wouldn’t mind playing the next entry in Square Enix’s antique hunting series from this viewpoint, but we assume that DICE's recently announced sequel will scratch that itch. Would you be willing to raid a grotty grave or two from this point of view, or has the embedded concept clip left you feeling a little sick? Plant your climbing axe in the comments section below.

I prefer third person to be honest. Unless they plan to make the next TR a straight up shooter.

@Gamer83 I thought it worked well in MGS4; triangle while aiming triggers 1st p and you can still move around. Or it could at least be while she's not moving, like SH:Homecoming's r3 toggle
