  • Summary: Adventurer Lara Croft has been hired to recover the pieces of an ancient artifact known as the Scion. With her fearless acrobatic style she runs, jumps, swims and climbs her way towards the truth of its origin and powers - leaving only a trail of empty tombs and gun-cartridges in her wake. On this trail are 3D worlds where exploration, puzzle and platform elements blend in a real-time environment. A chance for newcomers and diehards alike to jump back into the series' seminal single-player action.

    The lost city of Atlantis and ancient Egyptian pyramids are ripe for discovery: explore every hidden dark crevice and impossible heights; enter into strange, undiscovered lands and solve their deepest, darkest mysteries; open doors to new realms, uncover great rewards and unearth secrets to Lara's past. Deftly leap around charging enemies while you unleash a hail of bullets from your trademark dual pistols. The wilderness awaits with a wide range of enemies from bears to wolves, intriguing Atlantean centaurs and the terrifying T-Rex.

    Lara's first adventure retains its capacity for wide-open wonder, but the idiosyncratic controls, punishing difficulty, and sparse environments won't appeal to a mainstream crowd the way they once did.

    For its cheap price and the ability to revisit one of video game’s most celebrated heroines, Tomb Raider is a decent enough download.

    To sum this whole review up, it all comes down to whether or not you have a controller. If you do, then getting this excellent version of the game for such a low price is a steal. If you don't, it's not the most expensive curiosity, but that's all it is for all but the most dedicated and patient.

    Tomb Raider I brings to iOS devices the atmosphere and the charm of the original episode, with better graphics and a modern saving system, but the controls are totally messed up.

    Tomb Raider I is an atrocious iOS port that is completely derailed by terrible iOS controls, and it would have been better if Square Enix never re-released it on the App Store.
