    The proper game, on the other platforms, is completely amazing, but the PS2 edition is patronising in its quality. It's as if it could be a demo made when the PS2 was first released, perhaps worse in detail than Tomb Raider: Angel of Darkness from 2003, let alone the last two games on PS2. I got this version as soon as it was released for £25, expecting the same game (if not slightly lower in quality) than the Xbox version. However, it was more or less the same as the Wii version and the cutscenes were grainy (which sounds petty but WHY would you release a game with grainy cutscenes?!). It was obviously released on PS2 for no other reason but to take advantage of the PS2 audience and their money, without any regard of quality- absolutely lazy and inconsiderate. I agree with IGN; it should either have been released as a respectable version of the game (rather than taken directly from the Wii version) or not released at all to save us our money. It really could be mistaken as something from the early 2000s. Expand

  1. The graphical downgrade has certainly been handled with less grace and the new controls are more twitchy and unpredictable than the old ones.

    Full of bugs, linear play that discourages exploration and non-existent combat, Tomb Raider Underworld feels as though it's part of the series in name and main character only.
  3. For fans of the Tomb Raider series a “must have”, for other folks a title, that is able to entertain you for a small amount of time.
