Lara Is Back

GIN
16 March 2009
  • Excerpt: Lara Croft, one of the iconic babes of the video game world, is back in Tomb Raider Underworld. The game opens with a recap of the storyline and I was thankful of that cause my memory is not very good. The action heats up right away as Lara's lovely mansion is torched and you have to get her butt out of there. But stop right there, the game then takes you back to the middle of the Mediterranean Sea where the sea floor is your destination.

  • Summary: Combat the most dire enemy yet in a Tomb Raider game: the camera.
  • Pros: The graphics are phenomenal; Lara's moves are silky smooth; new moves in Lady Croft's arsenal are useful; gunplay tweaks; no quick-time events; exploring feels much more natural.
  • Cons: 90% of combat is against bugs & bats; not a single boss battle to be found; one of the worst cameras ever in a Tomb Raider game; some parts of the story feel unnecessary; far too short.

Expert Review

PSX Extreme
25 December 2008
  • Excerpt: Chalk it up as yet another game from E3 with mega-potential that ultimately disappointed for all the wrong reasons. Tomb Raider: Underworld had all the makings of a proper resurrection for the franchise, but it ultimately stagnates, falling ill to sophomorsh flaws that have crippled many third-person games in the past.

  • Excerpt: Hop…Skip…Jump… “Ah Shiii” – Splat! Yes, Lara is back once again to make men and women around the world scream at their televisions and cause concern among nearby family members. Actually, the British beauty of gaming has in fact redeemed herself in recent years with two immensely enjoyable follow ups to 2003’s travesty The Angel of Darkness . Tomb Raider Legend marked a welcome return for fans that managed to attract a significant new audience to the ageing series.

  • Excerpt: Adventurer Lara Croft returns on the PlayStation 3, XBox 360, PS2, Wii and PC in another exciting story that takes gamers across different exotic locations around the world such as the jungles of Mexico or the Arctic Sea. The series has always been strong on action and adventure with this current incarnation no different from the rest, however the graphics now support high definition and Lara has never looked better.
