Summary: How fitting that 2008, the year that Lara Croft reached her lowest point, is also the year that gave us Nathan Drake, a far more appealing and engaging treasure hunter/adventurer. The styles of the franchises have oft been compared, but where Lara breaks down and fails Nathan Drake excels.
Summary: In the Playstation One era `Tomb Raider' had it all; big sales, big exposure and big assets. However, as Eidos went into decline so did the `Tomb Raider' series, until the latest nada `Tomb Raider Underworld'.
Summary: I loved the early Tomb Raider games and played `em for hours on the PC. But here we have an example that sometimes more is less. Graphically pleasing. Atmospheric. Clever. It is all of these, but it is also incredibly frustrating. What finished it for me was the pillar jumps. It just never ends....
Summary: Two stars seems little harsh, but after enjoying TR3 on the PC and Legend on the PS2 - I didn't enjoy this one at all. The graphics are better (of course) but the animation is worse. She either does a weird slow-motion walk (you'd think she was underwater) or a run, with nothing in between.
