Tomb Raider: Underworld

Adventure Classic Gaming
7 June 2009
  • Excerpt: The Tomb Raider franchise has existed for 13 years now, with 8 video games in the main series and 2 feature films based on the license. The odds are good that even if you have not played any of the games you are likely to have heard about the main character Lara Croft through endless analysis and arguments in the mainstream media over the gaming industry's portrayal of women.

Tomb Raider: Underworld Review

VideoGamer.com
28 April 2009
  • Excerpt: Lara Croft is one of a dying breed of video game icons from the mid 90s. She was once seen as a pin-up for PlayStation and helped convince thousands (if not millions) of gamers that they needed to ditch their 16-bit consoles in favour of a shinier, more powerful 32-bit monster. Needless to say, the rest is history, with Tomb Raider now standing as one of the most popular video game series ever created.

Guitar Hero 5

Hooked Gamers
25 April 2009
  • Conclusion: Guitar Hero 5 offers a strong variety of music, mixing various styles and eras of rock music. Overall there are 85 songs by 83 different artists. The artists range from classic icons like Johnny Cash, Santana, and The Rolling Stones to newer artists like Arctic Monkeys and Vampire Weekend. Its an eclectic playlist and most people will find material that they are very fond of, but the set does feel scatterbrained with no central theme to hold it in place.

Tomb Raider: Underworld

Saving Progress
19 December 2008
  • Conclusion: For me, the Crystal Dynamics Tomb Raider games have been the equivalent of gamer comfort food. It is like revisiting my younger, less jaded gaming days and finding things better than I remember them being. Underworld is not perfect; there are camera issues that force blind jumps and shooting things is more a chore than anything else, but what it does right it does very, very well.

Expert Review

1 December 2008
  • Excerpt: When you grab the edge of a platform you can hit jump to heave yourself onto it, but press down the X button a little firmer and Lara will haul herself up into a death-defying handstand, glorious physique stretched to fullest extent, before righting herself in a flurry of limbs. Pointless though it may be, this little manoeuvre makes for a satisfying end to an arduous climb or series of jumps, the acrobatic equivalent of "That's all folks!" running on a meatier engine.

Doing what made the original great, and adding a considerable face-lift

17 November 2008
  • Excerpt: What is it? If you are a fan of Lara Croft and her adventures, we are in the midst of really good times. It seems that we get a new game every fifteen months or so, even if one of them is officially a remake of the original game. Now, after the extended flashback that was Tomb Raider: Anniversary , we return to the current thread of Lara's story in Tomb Raider: Underworld . This is the third Tomb Raider game to be made for Eidos by Crystal Dynamics and Nixxes Software.
