There was a time when, whenever a blockbuster movie was released, a video game developer would be hired to make a game based on that movie. Some of those movie-based video games have been extremely successful while others, on the other hand, have been terrible.
Nowadays, instead of the movie-based games, we see a VR tie-in experience of the movie. Various movies such as Spider-Man, Beauty and the Beast, and Justice League have VR tie-in experiences. Tomb Raider: Lara’s Escape reboot film is one of the latest movies to jump on that bandwagon, free for download on Samsung Gear VR.

The Tomb Raider VR consists of scenes that put you in the shoes of Lara Croft herself. It gives you a visual sense of running from Trinity soldiers through an ancient tomb. Having only a bow and climbing axe. In the Tomb Raider VR you are able to turn on Lara’s flashlight in order to be able to see the collapsing caverns, with traps spread out. Or you can zip-line across the caves. You are able to interact in the VR by the use of the Gear VR touchpad or wireless controller.
