      HIDDEN FOR CENTURIES IN THE MYTHIC CRADLE OF LIFE, PANDORA'S BOX CONTAINS THE MOST LETHAL OF PLAGUES -- AND THE WORLD'S MOST NOTORIOUS CRIMINALS ARE AFTER IT.

    BUT SO IS LARA CROFT....

    When the legendary Luna Temple is found off the coast of Greece, it is considered the greatest archaeological find since the Egyptian pyramids. As usual, Lara Croft is the first tomb raider on the scene. Once inside, Lara discovers a treasure more precious than she ever expected -- the secret to finding the Cradle of Life.

    The minions of biological weapons designer Dr. Jonathan Reiss intercept Lara at the Luna Temple and steal the key to locating the Cradle of Life. Now Lara must track it across the globe to the mountains of Kenya and find the site of the Cradle of Life before Dr. Reiss can destroy mankind. Local tribesmen say that no one has ever survived the quest for the Cradle of Life. Apparently they've never met Lara.
