Tomb Raider Chronically addictive

Dinky_D, Ciao

  • Excerpt: "...the hook and load up Tomb Raider Chronicles. Once you start, you can't stop! From beginning to end (which could last days, weeks, months, even years!) you'll be sucked into the world of Lara Croft. You'll learn to shimmy(!), swan dive, crawl on all fours and walk a tightrope. There's loads of levels including funny little creatures (could it be a dancing baby? lol). Don't wanna give too much away tho. The game takes you through Lara's life so far, ...
  • Pros: Pretend you're the REAL Lara Croft !
  • Cons: Doesn't work the same if you're male !

  • Excerpt: "I was so keen to get this one and find out lara's fate from the last one, but alas nothing new was discovered. It was good to get a history lesson, especially where von croy (or however you spell it) was concerned. I really liked rome, this brought back some of the good puzzle ideas and the mystery and wierdness of ancient puzzles. finding all the secrets was difficult in this section and required serious backtracking. The submarine levels ...
  • Pros: gives background to lara
  • Cons: looses some of original TR charm

  • Excerpt: "The Tomb Raider chronicle Its that time again, the middle of November, TOMB RAIDER MONTH. This time of year we have come to expect a release of the Tomb Raider series, but are they actually improving on it? Tomb Raider 1was originally, and in all cases an excellent game, everyone owned a copy it came out on all consoles, then Tomb Raider 2 came out. This was a better game, different story, new moves and better graphics. Lara now becomes very ...

Buy and play!!now!!!Lara is the best girl in the videogames and i want to married she!! Non c'è una parola per definire la voglia di finire il livello che c'è dopo.Questa saga non potrà mai finire perchè è stata l'innovazione del genere avventura a partire dal primo famoso Tomb Raider al più recente Tomb Raider Chronicles. Forse ...

  • Excerpt: "...or may not have played Tomb Raider Revolutions, you may or may not know that Lara supposedly died at the end of Tomb Raider Revolutions aswell. Well this is where Tomb Raider Chronicles comes into it. - THE GAME The opening scenes to the game are as good as they always were in the other Tomb Raider games. You are shown Laras friends and family having a memorial service for Lara as she was lost in Egypt. You, playing Lara (who isn’t dead, ...

  • Excerpt: "Just finished tomb raider chronicles and I have to say I'm a little disappointed. I loved Tomb raider, but then so did millions of others ( maybe it was just a new thing back then!!) and I think that TR3 was my favorite, but I really feel Eidos should leave Lara to rest for a while. We all know what she does, we've all done it before and we all know that she looks cute in the different ranges of clothing she is put in. For those of you who like ...

  • Excerpt: "I enjoy the Tomb raider Games. I brought this one i thought it looked good. The game is a good game but very short. There is 4 stories from Lara's past which we are told about and each one is mde up of about 5 levels. The game isn't exactly challenging it is alot easy then the others. This game is a dissapointment is as if they have thrown it together last minute. The graphics are good. I was and told and it is advertised on the case that Lara new ...

  • Excerpt: "...pyramid collapsed on her in Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation). The stories aren't unique, but the game is a little better off having four different plots than having a single, lengthy story. The graphics have improved a little only in the amount of detail that is present in the game. Prior Tomb Raider games seemed to have very empty environments, so I have to admit this new game has slightly better backgrounds. As for the sound, I don't have ...

Tomb Raider Chronicles - excellent

  • Excerpt: "Tomb Raider Chronicles, although along the same lines as the previous titles, is again fantastic! The graphics and gameplay are excellent - Lara's abilities have improved and she has many more tricks up her sleeve. Lara appears in different outfits and at the start of each segment is given a new range of weapons and gadgets - some not previously seen. I have found the puzzles a little more taxing than in the other Tomb Raider games - you really ...

What went wrong

  • Excerpt: "Placing my newly acquired Tom Raider Chronicles disk into my Playstation, it couldn’t start up quick enough. I eagerly watched the intro scenes with baited breath, and finally got to the point where I could start a new game. From here on in I felt it was all down hill, there didn’t seem to be a quest to follow. Although it was very similar to its predecessors it lacked its certain guts and normal feel. The levels of when Lara was 12 or 14 armed only ...
  • Pros: Great cut scenes
  • Cons: Too hard in places, and very short, just 9 hours
