Tomb Raider: Underworld review

 

Memo from Thor – he wants his hammer back

Old school does still have its charms, and if you’ve enjoyed Lara’s adventures in the past then you’ll no doubt feel right at home with Underworld. However, the formula does need updating, so let’s hope that next year’s reboot can come up with a few...

Tomb Raider: Underworld

 

Lara is back. Back on form, back on track, back in black. Just back in general. Now, the new Lara continues on with her quest to rescue her mother, we take a look to see if Underworld is all we hoped. Or we will as soon as we tear our eyes away from...

As the game goes on, the graphics start to matter less and less, to be honest. While the graphics are good Crystal Dynamics hasn’t tried to blow your socks off with them. Instead, the effort has gone into creating a cinematic presentation and...

Tomb Raider: Underworld

 

Lara's back in her best-looking adventure yet. We put her through her paces

Control system / Graphics / Freedom to explore

AI / Occasional restrictions

In the years since, its heroine, Lara Croft, become increasingly… well endowed, not to mention a lot less pixellated. But the fortunes of the game series haven’t always grown as predictably as her more, well, physical attributes

Tomb Raider: Underworld

 

Tomb Raider: Underworld brings Lara Croft back in an ardent effort to stop what has been a heady descent into video game irrelevance.

Beautiful locations, entertaining story, functional controls

Underdeveloped combat mechanics, generally slow pace, some platforming sections need tuning

Lara tries to whip out the twins — get your mind out of the gutter: the "twins" I'm talking about here are action and adventure — in order to evoke some excitement in Underworld but there isn't enough solid action to back up the platforming. All in...

Tomb Raider Underworld

 

A good looking game that's hampered by mundane combat and technical glitches.

Pretty good!

 

Another exciting adventure for Miss Croft in her new designer outfits, boasting motion-captured movements modelled from gymnast Heidi Moneymaker (no pun, real name), she runs, climbs, swings, swims, swishes at undergrowth, chimney vaults and fights her...

Short and sweet

 

Really short - took me 9 hours and I really was dawdling and repeated quite a few levels. But it is fun which is why I repeated some levels. The storyline's good but it did feel like I was playing a sequel ie. I should know certain things about the...

Brilliant! But not for the arachnaphobic...

 

I love this game, i've played over and over again. But i'm petrified of spiders, and during one level, giant spiders jump at you and attack you, I'm warning you now that you may scream!!! But, other than that, IT'S A FANTASTIC GAME!!

Lara's back!

 

Great gameplay, Lara is back to what she does best after a few recent dodgy outings. The graphics are stunning with breath taking vista's at every turn. The underwater scenes are particulary detailed. Some jerky camera angles made me give it four...
