  1. Excellent, albeit lacking in revolutionary intent -- but c'mon, how many games really differ in that respect?
  2. Unfortunately the game will be over before you really get into it, which is a crying shame.
  3. Rent it and relive all what's good (length, challenge, graphics) and bad (control, pixelation, difficulty, puzzles) about one of the PSX's best action series ever.
  4. 70
    If you still enjoy the series and want more, go with Tomb Raider Chronicles. But if Lara hasn't yet cast her spell on you, you'd do well to look for an adventure game with less frustrating controls.
  5. It's time to move on, Lara -- Angelina Jolie is waiting in the wings, and then you're done.
  6. 65
    Basically more of the same, so you probably know better than anyone else whether or not it's something that you'll like.
  7. It is redeemed by its attempt at varied and balanced play and the fact that, compared to its siblings, it's shorter than a legless dwarf caterpillar after a confrontation with the business end of a shoe.
