    Tomb Raider: Chronicles reveals four newly discovered, and previously untold adventures, taking you on a journey from the ruins of Rome, to the bowels of a German U boat, to the rooftops of a hi-tech city in a search of four ancient artifacts.

    In light of Lara's recent disappearance, those closest to her gather together at the Croft Estate on a gray, rainy day for a memorial service in her honor.

  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. It's time to move on, Lara -- Angelina Jolie is waiting in the wings, and then you're done.

    I do think that the developers are guilty of trying to please all the people all of the time, but for all that Tomb Raider Chronicles is eminently playable.

    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 should be illegal for you to own money if you even considered buying this crap. [Jan 2004, p.189]
