    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. More variety in the level design, a save feature, and a few more weapons would have made the experience even more enjoyable. As it stands, Prophecy is a solid title worth your clams.
  3. 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.
  4. The digital controls are extremely precise and you won't find yourself falling to your death very often.
  5. It's one huge adventure with thirty-two levels in all, making it longer than many Gamecube games.

    Accurately modeling the features that have made this series so endearing and capturing the action from a surprisingly workable viewpoint, it's a tremendous traveling companion for anyone with a taste for adventure.
  7. Lara has a nice range of moves, but the game is pretty linear and straight-forward. What you have in the end is a nice looking but fairly standard game that will have the most appeal to Lara Croft and action-adventure fans.
