    The game isn’t without its flaws and there are definite places where the game could use a good tweak or two, but in all this DS game is a solid and enjoyable Tomb Raider design.
  2. Nice face, shame about the legs. Despite some great locations and visuals Underworld's gameplay will feel a bit on the bland side for regular pocket gamers - the more casual crowd should love it, though.
  3. Pelit (Finland)
    A decent snack size platformer boosted with simplistic puzzles. [Mar 2009]
  4. Nintendo Gamer
    A polished platformer with plenty of 'oooh' moments, but has ideas too big for its station. [Jan 2009, p.65]
  5. Tomb Raider Underworld is way a too easy ride on NDS, and a scrappy narration won't please Lara's fans; gameplay gets boring soon enough, and main characters portrayal isn't deep enough. Just for Tomb Raider's die-hard fans.
  6. Expect a few day’s play out of Underworld and little more. As in the real world, there’s no reason to raid a tomb that’s already been raided.
  7. Tomb Raider: Underworld is ultimately a competent but underwhelming platform game that has little to offer fans of the genre.
