Doing what made the original great, and adding a considerable face-lift

Epic scope ; Great level design ; Beautiful environments

A bit on the short side ; Weak story ; Not the best combat

The remarkable architectural vision, coupled with ultra-smart level design, all produced on such a huge scale, makes this as good as Tomb Raider has ever been. It’s still short, it still has annoying combat, and Lara still freaks out and jumps off in...

Tomb Raider: Underworld review

 

Tomb Raider: Underworld brings Lara Croft back in a bid to halt the series' descent into video game irrelevance.

Lara tries to produce action and adventure to evoke some excitement in Tomb Raider: Underworld but there isn't enough solid action to back up the platforming. All in all, Ms Croft's latest effort falls a bit flat with a dated feel; it's obvious that...

Tomb Raider: Underworld (PC) - Gameplanet Review

 

Underworld has pushed the series in a bright new direction, and despite a few flaws there's plenty of excitement to be had. Animations, environments and sounds are all marvellously executed, and although combat may be a bit rusty the size and scope of...

Awesome effects. Great cut-scenes. Everything we've come to expect from a Tomb Raider title. Character acting is probably the best so far

Combat isn't without annoyances. AI is useless. Too many bugs. Camera angles just don't work

Fantastic!

Tomb Raider Underworld

 

The Tomb Raider series has always had exploration at its core, feeding on our desire to see what waits for Lara around the next bend, and in this respect Underworld is particularly accomplished. But it is saddening that, despite Underworld getting so...

Tomb Raider: Underworld for PC Review - If you're looking for a game heavy on exploration instead of gun-play and don't mind looking at a finely toned arse for 12 or more hours, Underworld comes highly recommended.

Isn't over in six hours

Some control and camera quirks

Tomb Raider: Underworld

 

Just over five years ago, the Tomb Raider series reached an important turning point, with the release of Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness. The first 128-bit game featuring Lara Croft was a long-awaited one, and had been delayed several times to...

Lengthy, enjoyable adventure ; Controls are easy to get to grips with ; Best looking TR game to date

Jumps can be annoying at times ; No major steps forward in game-play

Underworld is a good game, no doubt about that, and certainly one worth playing through. If you go looking for all relics and treasures, it can last you many hours, though it's no short shift if you ignore them either. It's perhaps lacking the same...

Born slippery

So my advice to the dev team would probably be "Leave the bum and the boobs intact though, Crystal D. You're doing just fine with those."
