    As good as "Tomb Raider 1" was, 2 is twice as good!
  2. Even at its most frustrating lower points, Tomb Raider 2 satisfies, and when at it's peak of effectiveness, the game is a soaring masterpiece. [Score = 98]
  3. A masterpiece... I loved every single minute of it and I'm off to start again to find all of the secrets.
  4. It offers loads of action, miles of ground to explore, great locales, an interesting story (that develops as you play with cut-scenes and is not just hastily thrown in to flesh out the manual), wonderful control and a lot of bang for your buck.
  5. It's the sequel's addition of vehicles and more diverse locatins that make it the best of the series. [Nov 2001, p.54]
  6. Definitely a great game, but it was just so tough in spots. I fear that many gamers will tire of getting stuck all the time and not want to continue.
  7. Most of Tomb Raider II's improvements are cosmetic, and even those aren't really anything special.
