Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness
27 December 2012
Summary: Just like all my other reviews on Tomb Raider games, I am hooked on the storyline. This is the first ps2 game of this series, and it presents higher resolution graphics than the first five tomb raider games (Tomb Raider 1, 2, 3, Chronicles, and Revelation all started on ps1). Upgrading your character throughout this game, was a great addition to the gaming experience in this series!
Summary: Okay, personally, I liked what I played of the game. I've played it occasionally with my friend and I used to be a Tomb Raider Addict, I had all of them and only ever beat Chronicles because of the vast amount of cheats that were helpful. Now, AOD is a pretty good game, but I agree with most when saying it's not as great as it could've been. I really loved her new outfit, and the fact that she was framed for the murder. The plot was very intruiging (sp?).
Summary: The latest in the long line of Tomb Raider games, Angel of Darkness has a reputation that no game developer would be envious of producing.... that of a bug laden, uninspiring game. I'm not here to tell you that it's completely untrue, but it's certainly not the gospel either. Those familiar with the series since it's conception will attest that the games have always had awkward controls. Angel of Darkness is no exception.
Summary: Tomb Raider. Oh, what is there to say about Tomb Raider...? Well, let's start from the basics. Tomb Raider is the story about a girl and her guns, and she just so happens to raid tombs. Tomb Raider 1, 2, 3, Revelations, Chronicles, Unfinished Business, 2: Gold, The Lost Artifact, and the first game boy game all seemed to follow that story line. With that, Tomb Raider gained a wide amount of success. A true money maker, Lara Croft was.
Summary: Me and my dad have played all the tomb raiders and this one is definitely the worst. First of all, there are many glitches in the game. In one part, a fish is flying above the water. Secondly, lara is very slow and doesn't react fast enough. When you take out your guns, she aims at the enemie. But the engine does it in such a way that it really doesnt fit the game. I give this game a 1 out of 5.
Summary: Tomb Raider is a great video game series and now they have released the first game onto the PS2. Now I know that it sounds great but there are a lot of flaws in this games. But first the good qualities in the game: The storyline is real good, and keeps you going. Instead of being a retrieval quest like most of the originals, this one plots Lara in her darkest adventure yet, her conviction of murder.
Summary: In the game industry, when a game is tested, it goes in two phases: alpha and beta. Alpha stage is the very beginning of testing in which the game is still under development and there are still many things missing, things needed to be added, and numerous bugs still present in the game. Tomb Raider, AOD, was obviously still in alpha stage but was released anyway, probably to synch with the release of the film.
Summary: I've played and beat Raider 2, and this one Raider 6 AOD was so much easier and shorter and actually more fun to beat the second time around too! like a memory tester. I will never want to beat the 2nd one again though. I hope we don't switch players again in the next one cause its like level 4 of 'The Simpsons Hit & Run' I just hated being marge!!! so weak ya know... at least give me somebody faster.
Summary: For the record, I have played the previous five TR games and am a huge Lara fan. That is partly what makes TR6 such a big disappointment. I used to put up with the control problems and animation problems, because I thought those were the limitations of a Playstation2. Since then I have played Prince of Persia - Sands of Time, which has such seamless flow and ease of control, that I have been forever spoiled.
