    First think that this game is 11 years old. Then play. This game is one of the best games ever made. It has a great story, good graphics & gameplay for that time and awesome levels.

    The last revelation is not a Tomb raider, it IS tomb raider. It is the most tomb raider-y experience since the very first game back in 1996. Most game reviewers usually complain that the core-design games lack innovation, they do a rehash of the first game with more levels, so? It may be true for tomb raider 2 or 3, but for me personally that's not a con. tomb raider 4 on the other handThe last revelation is not a Tomb raider, it IS tomb raider.

It may be true for tomb raider 2 or 3, but for me personally that's not a con. tomb raider 4 on the other hand plays differently while still giving the atmosphere you loved from the first game. Tr4 main setting is Egypt, and the sense of wonder from level to level is astounding. Each chamber, each open field, every place is full of personality and not a lazy copy-and-paste. Puzzles are different now, the one I most fondly remember is the "dice game" with Semherket. Action is usually integrated when solving puzzles, like when you have to use the strength of a raging bull to open a door, it's not the tired "press switch run to the door". Even though there are not "traditional boss fights, you will use your guns a lot. Up until the third act the pacins is amazing, the last levels are somehow tired. There is an increasingly difficult spike that would put some players off, without a guide you would feel lost. The main problem is that it's never clear wich objects are interactive and wich not, combine with the permanent state of darkness in the last leves that your eyes will bleed in agony. It's weird but Cairo and Giza (the last two sections of the game) are overly long, with little to no "break" with cutscenes, they are not set during the day so it's difficult to catch little details (like a key on the ground). In the end, if you like a challenging game with an involving story (that I didn't spoil for you), engaging environments, great action, this is the game for you. Expand

    Some people ask themselves why other people like this game so much. For people who haven't played this game yet, it has everything a good game should have. I know, it's one of the forgotten games (like NOLF and many others, that's why this is only the second review of this game) but that doesn't mean it is not a good game. And especially, this game is 11 years old. The game has a greatSome people ask themselves why other people like this game so much.

And especially, this game is 11 years old. The game has a great story (one of the best story's ever in a game),and the gameplay and the graphics are both very good for a game of 1999. But there is one thing that TR 4 makes the best Tomb Raider ever: the very difficult puzzles. This and the great story makes it one of the best games I ever played in my life. Expand

    This is probably my most favourite game of all time. I am replaying it now on Vita and like it as much as more than 10 years ago. This is an example the real adventure game should be like. Huge complex levels, thrilling and atmospheric sound, difficult puzzles and the duration of the game. A true masterpiece. Thank You, Core Design.

    One of the best Tomb Raider games of the "classical" era and my personal favorite together with TR3. All the nice features are there and the difficulty is just right.
