Lara Croft’s NYC Survival Quiz

Lara Croft is such a badass that she could survive the most threatening of alien environments: New York City. Could you? Take the quiz and find out. Then pick up your copy of Tomb Raider, in stores now.

  1. Crisis: The Subway

    Your subway train breaks down underground. An hour goes by. Then another. Eventually it becomes clear that you are probably on your own. What do you do?

    1. 1 Stay in the safety of the train car and read your book until help finally arrives.
    2. 2 Write a farewell note to your loved ones, then assemble the rest of the passengers and draw straws to decide who gets eaten first.
    3. 3 Pop the hatch, sprint into the ancient, darkened subway tunnels, and push on random parts of the wall until you inevitably find that secret exit.
  2. Crisis: The Landlord

    Your landlord announces that he is jacking up the rent by 50%, starting immediately. What do you do?

    1. 1 Complain incessantly on Facebook, threaten to leave, and then pay up.
    2. 2 Move to Queens, then tip off the cops that your landlord is selling weed out of the basement, because come on, he’s totally selling weed out of the basement.
    3. 3 Pay the man. Given that you’re a world-famous treasure hunter, a few extra bucks isn’t the end of the world.
  3. Crisis: The Elevator

    You find yourself trapped in an elevator with a bunch of weirdos. What do you do?

    1. 1 Stare at your smartphone and avoid eye contact until help arrives. If help doesn’t arrive within an hour, hyperventilate and weep until it does.
    2. 2 Make a human pyramid out of the weirdos, then climb out of the elevator hatch and see if you can reach the next floor and pry the door open, Die Hard style.
    3. 3 Pop the hatch, leap out of the elevator from a standing position and climb the cable up to the top of the shaft, pry open the doors, then free-climb down the side of the building (because stairs are for lazy people).
  4. Crisis: Times Square

    You have a meeting at the other end of Times Square in 10 minutes and it’s mid-day in peak tourist season. What do you do?

    1. 1 Say “Excuse me” over and over as you edge your way through the crowd. Experience has taught you that there’s no problem that can’t be solved with politeness and patience.
    2. 2 Screw it. Go home. Experience has taught you that nothing - NOTHING - is worth dealing with a Times Square crowd.
    3. 3 Use your climbing axe to scale to the top of the Viacom building, then use your bow to shoot a rope across over the surging crowds and zipline across. Now use the extra seven minutes to get yourself a snack. Experience has taught you that you basically have super powers.
  5. Crisis: Food Truck

    Your favorite taco food truck keeps moving every day and you can never find it. What do you do?

    1. 1 Go to Sbarro. That’s authentic New York cuisine, right?
    2. 2 They’re almost certainly on Twitter, and if that doesn’t work you have so many foodie friends that one of them is bound to know what’s up.
    3. 3 Cling to the bottom of a helicopter and scan the city for clues as you’re whisked through the stone canyons of New York City at death-defying speeds. When you locate the truck, let go of the chopper, and backflip off a series of conveniently placed flag poles until you reach the ground.
  6. Crisis: Death Cab for Everyone

    Your openly drunk cabbie keeps trying to run another cab off the road. What do you do?

    1. 1 Sternly reprimand him and make sure he knows you’re writing his license number down. Then, if you survive the ride, write a strongly worded email to the Taxi and Limousine Commission detailing the transgression.
    2. 2 What do you mean? This sounds like an average NYC cab ride. I guess if it’s really bad, tip 15%.
    3. 3 Use your wrist-crossbow to disable to enemy cab by shooting its tires. This certainly isn’t your first experience with cab-to-cab combat, and your cabbie is clearly trying to protect you.
  7. Crisis: Late for Work

    It’s been 45 minutes and you’re starting to think the train just ain’t coming. What do you do?

    1. 1 Cry.
    2. 2 Go topside and hail a cab.
    3. 3 Run through the subway tunnels, shooting Rat Kings with your uzi.
  8. Crisis: Bedbugs!

    Your apartment is infested with bedbugs. What do you do?

    1. 1 Burn it down and start over.
    2. 2 Burn it down and start over.
    3. 3 Burn it down and start over.
