Those of you who grew up in the 80s will have fond memories of watching your action heroes kicking ass. Thanks to the recent Vietnam war at the time it was a very cool feature to have your hero kicking that ass in a jungle setting. Predator, Commando and Rambo First Blood Part 2 were all set in jungles, where camouflaging with their surroundings was key to beating the odds. The latest combat tactics video for Shadow of the Tomb Raider is looking very reminiscent of that era.
Remember when Rambo hid inside some sort of mud wall, with only his big eyeballs showing? Lara does something similar but instead uses overgrowing wall plants to hide from her foes. Just like Rambo she sneaks up on an enemy and stabs him. Copying that particular movie she kills off one bad guy at a time by using her bow and arrow with rope attachment and by making them paranoid with their own surroundings. Lara couldn’t be more 80s action hero if she tried.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider launches on 12 September for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
