Tomb Raider: Underworld (PlayStation 3)

 

When Eidos handed development of the Tomb Raider franchise to Crystal Dynamics, it was a risky but ultimately wise decision. The team managed to reinvent the series while staying true to its roots with Tomb Raider: Legend, while Tomb Raider:...

When it comes to gaming characters, one of the most iconic in popular culture is none other than Lara Croft. Star of the Tomb Raider franchise, Lara Croft has come out with another chapter in her legacy entitled Tomb Raider: Underworld. For the...

In the overall impression of Tomb Raider: Underworld, I believe somewhere under this mess lies an actual good game you can play and enjoy. Unfortunately the lack of polish and refinement that could have done to fix the awful camera and frame rate might...

Eidos offers some high-quality fan service in a decidedly sloppy container.

Great story brings the trilogy full-circle; gorgeous graphics with huge vistas; lots of new moves

Poor technical performance with bad camera, lousy framerate and lots of bugs; new moves can create confusion in controls

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...

Lara's tomb has been raided one too many times.

Looks and sounds great; Puzzles can be inventive

A faithful return to the old days; . . .but are mostly repetitive; Pointless combat

The Tomb Raider series has had more ups and downs that an astronaut in space. The franchise has gone from money gorging powerhouse to laughing stock. Its protagonist has gone through more plastic surgery than Jordan. Yet here we are in 2008 with...

Tomb Raider: Underworld PlayStation 3 Review

 

Combat the most dire enemy yet in a Tomb Raider game: the camera.

Underworld picks up the story that started in Tomb Raider 1 / Anniversary and continued in Legend. This means that to play the games chronologically, you need Anniversary, Legend, and then Underworld. It's a bit confusing, but when you see those few...

When Tomb Raider Underworld was first announced we we?re promised our first proper next generation Tomb Raider (since legend and anniversary were built for the PS2 from the ground up). New shiny graphics would accompany new gameplay additions and were...

I still don?t understand how Lara can use her guns underwater or why she insists on kicking priceless vase?s, but niggles aside Tomb Raider Underworld is actually pretty fun in places. It's just a shame that this so called update was is so horrendously...

Acrobatics, twin guns and big guns… it's Tomb Raider all right

Crystal Dynamics has revived the core values of the original Tomb Raider games and reminded fans what drew them to the series in the first place. It’s an enticingly open action-adventure game with a seriously sexy lead.

Expert review by:

Tomb Raider: Underworld

 

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.

Combat thankfully plays second fiddle to exploration. It's by no means bad, with Lara able to target and even focus shoot enemies in the head for instant kills, but she just doesn't seem at home doing somersaults while firing pistols. Also making a...
