A Prophecy of Failure

Vspawn, Ciao

  • Excerpt: INTRO The GBA (Gameboy Advance) was the best selling console of all time in Europe when it came out. It outsold the PS2 (released around the same time), XBOX, Game Cube and of course other portable consoles had no say whatsoever. So with such an acclaimed piece of gaming equipment on the loose, it seemed only right that Lara Croft - the queen of gaming herself would waltz onto the scene with an epic adventure of her own.
  • Pros: Vast number of levels, good longetivity, good sound
  • Cons: Very samey, repetitive, unoriginal .

Good looking game but where's the challenge?

  • Excerpt: Nice graphics and a typical tomb raider story line. But where is the challenging tomb raider puzzle solving? When i brought the game home I expected a game involving you to find your way through labyrinths, solve puzzles and be prepared to face enemies and monsters. The game itself is a large maze to traverse, but usually there is only one path available, so it is never difficult to find where to go next. This concept can get very tiresome.
  • Pros: Has good looking graphics and contains a typical tomb raider story line
  • Cons: Lacking challenges, lacks puzzles

The girl with the golden guns

Worrals, Ciao
9 June 2003
  • Excerpt: Lara Croft spreads herself about a bit, doesn't she? Remember when she was Sony's big guns, so to speak, in the console wars? Fickle female that she is, though, she was soon appearing in PC and Macintosh versions of her once PlayStation-exclusive adventures. Two outings on arch-rival Nintendo's Game Boy Color platform followed, and now she has the gall to swan around on the swanky new Game Boy Advance in an all-new adventure. Tsk - women!
  • Pros: Great graphics and sound
  • Cons: Less challenging than Tomb Raider games on other platforms
