    Very fun game with a damn leave you hanging ending. Only gripe is that it was way too short. Other than that Tomb Raider was a fun 7.5 hours.

    This game is great, Tomb Raider now feels more like Prince of Persia, with some cool original ideas too. The story mode is exciting and there's a lot of great extras to keep players coming back.

    A return to form for the ailing franchise. Eidos' decision to give the job to Silicon Knights has proven its worth. The experience garnered from the Soul Reaver series is an obvious influence to the new TR. With a much more fluid and responsive control system and a return to exploration, this is the first major step forward the series has taken. Its not perfect, the game leads the A return to form for the ailing franchise. Eidos' decision to give the job to Silicon Knights has proven its worth. The experience garnered from the Soul Reaver series is an obvious influence to the new TR. With a much more fluid and responsive control system and a return to exploration, this is the first major step forward the series has taken. Its not perfect, the game leads the player by the hand, with too many hints making some sections more obvious than they should be and a relatively short lifespan. The vehicle sections aren't much good either. However, there are lots of secrets to find and a plethora of lovely touches, both graphically and in the level design. Overall, this is a very solid effort and well worth a look. Expand

  1. Every second of this game screams skillful design and the result is a liberating game world that feels open and responsive. Nearly every object in the game reacts to Lara's influence, and this applies to the gamer holding the control pad as well - it's impossible to play this game and not fall under its tempting spell.

    Some may argue over what the series should have become, but what's important is that it has made that tough decision for itself, and established a rock solid foundation for inevitable, now justified successors. [May 2006, p.86]
  3. Lara gets a total makeover, delivering what Angel of Darkness should have years ago.
