  • Summary: Tomb Raider: The Prophecy delivers the full Tomb Raider experience with no compromises.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 7 out of 20
  2. Negative: 4 out of 20
  1. It just shows that they've done such a good job of the "Legend" that the sight of the credits rolling up the screen made our hearts sink - we want more and we want it NOW. [May 2006, p.48]
  2. The greatest thing about Tomb Raider: The Prophecy is that it captures the same scope and spirit of exploration that made the early Tomb Raider games so enjoyable.
  3. It's one huge adventure with thirty-two levels in all, making it longer than many Gamecube games.
  4. When you're pulling switches, backtracking, and participating in boring combat through these large areas, you tire quickly. [Jan 2003, p.122]
  5. 60
    Thanks to the lifeless puzzle design, TR quickly becomes dull-hit the switch, jump to another ledge, repeat.
  6. With all the inexpensive technology available today, it grinds my nerves to see that Ubi Soft couldn't program in the ability to save on the cartridge. With passwords becoming less of a trend today, the game is severely hurt.
  7. A totally underwhelming experience.

    Tomb raider the prophecy is a decent game though it is nowhere near perfect. The game looks great for the gameboy advance. Ubisoft were were trying to go for a 3D effect an i believe the did as well as the could. Though the areas can blend in sometimes which is incredibly annoying. The game can be fun at points but for most of the game you are just pulling levers to turn of fire or something like that. It can be incredibly boring. The games sound is decent. But story is almost non existent though i can excuse this as it is a GBA game. Overall it is alright but does not compare to TOMB RAIDER GBC and Tomb raider curse of the sword on GBC. Unfortunately this game was Lara's last handheld exclusive. They shall be missed Expand
