  • Summary: Tomb Raider: Chronicles reveals four newly discovered, and previously untold adventures, taking you on a journey from the ruins of Rome, to the bowels of a German U boat, to the rooftops of a hi-tech city in a search of four ancient artifacts.

    In light of Lara's recent disappearance,
    those closest to her gather together at the Croft Estate on a gray, rainy day for a memorial service in her honor. Afterwards, the friends sit quietly together in the study of the Croft Mansion and provide new insights about Lara's past exploits; exploits that have until now remained a secret... Expand

  1. It's time to move on, Lara -- Angelina Jolie is waiting in the wings, and then you're done.
  2. A worthy enough "sequel" to the original and can deliver an adequate number of thrills, though nothing unique or surprising.
  3. 70
    The controls are the same-they're as touchy yet unresponsive as always, so be prepared for swan-diving off high ledges to your death when you were merely trying to scoot up a bit.
  4. Let's hope that, if Lara just happens to be alive (care to bet?), her next Dreamcast adventure won't be handicapped by being shared with an inferior 32-bit system on its way out.
  5. 58
    It's sad, but despite some new play mechanics, including a stealth mode mission (a la "Metal Gear Solid"), the same old flaws are here and the same gameplay that I'm tired of still lives, even if Lara is dead.
  6. Misses the mark by just a tad, but that shouldn't halt the admiring throngs.
  7. Tomb Raider: Chronicles is like a fruit cake. Sure, it looks tasty and the name sounds good, but then you actually taste the thing.
