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: 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.
Summary: In this day and age, are we as gamers really expected to put up with this level of crap? Possibly the biggest disappointment in the history of videogames since the Sega Saturn, 'Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness' is the first next-gen outing for the intrepid Ms. Croft. Stuck in development hell for the best part of 2 years, Core and Eidos should be very, VERY ashamed of themselves for allowing such a bug-filled, poorly thought-out piece of software onto the shelves,...
Summary: As a huge TR fan I bought this game thinking that it would be one of the best ones out because it was on the new PS2 where it allows for better graphics and more complex actions. However, I start out the game and the controls are all messed up, you can't adjust Lara as easily in the previous games. Then as I start to see the story develop and am beginning to get into the game I discover that I can't continue.
Summary: This is perhaps the worst [money] I ever spent. Let's get the pros out of the way since there is only 1 PROS- The story is good rivaling that of the movie francise. CONS 1.For all the hype and post-poned release dates you would think this game would have been less buggy and more playable. 2.
Summary: Let me start by saying I have everything tomb raider from all the games to a hat from the ride to a bobble head lara croft doll. Now setting the stage for where I'm coming from, what the hell happened?! New controls?? Game glitches so bad I had to restart from a new game TWICE due to getting trapped or "pinned" into an area that WASN'T supposed to function as a trap. The game is so disfunct that at one point I was climbing down a pole then suddenly started to levitate.
