    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.
  2. A worthy enough "sequel" to the original and can deliver an adequate number of thrills, though nothing unique or surprising.

    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. It's time to move on, Lara -- Angelina Jolie is waiting in the wings, and then you're done.
  5. Tomb Raider: Chronicles is like a fruit cake. Sure, it looks tasty and the name sounds good, but then you actually taste the thing.
  6. Misses the mark by just a tad, but that shouldn't halt the admiring throngs.
  7. Apart from a small assortment of new moves and costumes, there is almost nothing in the game to distinguish it from previous installments.
  8. 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.
  9. Save yourself the pain and boycott this steaming pile.
