Summary: It's Christmas 2008 and Crystal Dynamics have presented their latest offering, Tomb Raider: Underworld. We had high expectations, so how has the resulting title measured up? Crystal Dynamics have previously produced Tomb Raider: Legend and Tomb Raider: Anniversary, the resurrected version of Lara's...
Summary: I found Underworld to be very enjoyable. In fact, I would go as far as saying it's the most enjoyable Tomb Raider I've played so far. Although perhaps not as challenging as other releases there are sufficient puzzles and terrain to overcome to keep you entertained.
Summary: Another exciting adventure for Miss Croft in her new designer outfits, boasting motion-captured movements modelled from gymnast Heidi Moneymaker (no pun, real name), she runs, climbs, swings, swims, swishes at undergrowth, chimney vaults and fights her way dirty kneed through a maze of jungles,...
Summary: I've been playing this for a couple of weeks now and because I string my gaming out (as I have other things to do) I've still only got three-quarters of the way through. It's a huge amount of fun, a really superb and great-looking game in the whole with a few small drawbacks.
Summary: I feel I must add my voice to the reviewers in saying that although I have a good PC- which took me 18 months saving up for (intel i5 2500K (O/C 4.8Ghz) -NVIDIA GTX570 -8GB DDR3 RAM etc) and I can run ANY other game no problems at all-at last!
Great story and puzzles, awful controls and camera

Summary: Tomb Raider Underworld is the first game in this iconic franchise I have played and I found it reasonably enjoyable. Lara Croft is again the heroine and is following a series of clues left by her dead father which might shed light on her mother's mysterious disappearance many years before.
Summary: At the end of the day, if you're looking for innovative, cutting edge gaming then you're probably not using a PC and you're probably not interested in Tomb Raider. For established TR fans or those who want to break into the genre without going super-high tech, I reckon this is a pretty good buy.
Summary: The game took ages to install and then immediately ran slowly. Tried to install a patch but this made no difference. The problem may be due to Windows 7 or possibly the spec of my computer, however it a modern high performance PC (but not a gaming one).
