Entomb this sleepy raider

30 January 2003
  • Excerpt: At this point I could make loads of crass "Is that Lara Croft in your pocket or are you pleased to see me?" type gags, but I shall resist. Nevertheless, Lara Croft has clambered and grunted her way onto the small screen, courtesy of Ubi Soft. GBA owners everywhere can rejoice because they've got their very own Tomb Raider to slip into bags and the pockets of combat trousers - hoorah! In true Tomb Raider fashion the story is based around some fabricated legend.

  • Summary: While the GBA shrinks all of Lara Croft's aspects, the gameplay remains the one area that hasn't seen reduction.

Tomb Raider: The Prophecy

Game Over Online

  • Excerpt: To my knowledge, this is the first Tomb Raider presented in something other than the classic third person, behind the back, action-adventure mode Eidos pioneered way back when this 3D mode was actually original. Nowadays, just about every action-adventure or platform title has it. The puck now being passed to Ubi Soft, Tomb Raider: The Prophecy has taken on a top down birds-eye view although the marketing literature very much wants you to believe otherwise.

Expert Review

10 December 2002
  • Excerpt: Both Tomb Raider games on the Game Boy Color were excellent titles. In the follow-up from Ubisoft, the tradition continues. However, a few small problems spoil an A rating.

Tomb Raider: The Prophecy

28 May 2003
  • Conclusion: Lara Croft utnämns ofta till tv-spelens drottning och ska kvinnliga spelkaraktärer räknas upp blir det ofta fröken Croft som nämns först. Jag tycker detta är rätt underligt eftersom Tomb Raider-spelen i mitt tycke är relativt mediokra. Det finns betydligt coolare tjejkaraktärer i spel som dessutom är flera klasser bättre. Fast det förstås, dessa figurer har inte figurerat på filmduken eller i form av storbystade brudar på spelmässor.
  • Pros: Fungerande tidsförströelse
  • Cons: Hafsigt och menlöst. Det finns betydligt bättre bärbara spel.
