    For all it's flaws, you get a sense of achievement from this game. You do want to see what's coming next, and the exploration bits where you have to avoid a hazard by inching across a ledge or ducking under an obstacle are still absurdly enjoyable.
  2. Perhaps the most interesting addition in Tomb Raider: Chronicles is the level editor. With it, you can now create your own missions and scenarios to pass along to your friends in the mod community, but before you get excited, it should be known that this is one complicated tool.

    TR:C can be fun, particularly the killer final level. However, based on the price of the title, and the complete lack of ingenuity, I can't recommend TR:C to anyone other than the most frothy-mouthed, rabid Tomb Raider fans. The quality just isn't there.

    The same old Tomb Raider action.
  5. Right down to the familiar trapezoidal box, Tomb Raider Chronicles is completely lacking in significant innovation.

    This franchise is as stale as a holiday fruitcake. The new engine is needed NOW. [Mar 2001, p.86]
  7. If I can prevent just one piece-of-crap game like this from coming to the market, it will be the right thing to do for gaming.

The stages are diverse, the difficulty is exactly right and it doesn't drag for too long like TR3 and TR4. The submarine levels are amazingly atmospheric. One of the best stages in Tomb Raider history including the later releases. It was greatly underrated when it came out because it was the fifth game in four years and everybody was tired, including the fans. In my opinion it's the only game that a new comer should play from the first era. Expand

However, the game offers nothing new except tight rope walking and pole swinging; so if you haven’t liked any Lara Croft game before you aren't likely to find anything enjoyable here. Again we are presented with an extremely buggy final level, which is a severe downside but thankfully the level design has gone back to its origins unlike its predecessor! Another benefit to this title is that it appears to have been properly optimised for widescreen resolutions, unlike previous entries which relied more on stretching 4:3 ratios. Overall, this is a very enjoyable game. Expand

    Collection of various short stories about some past events from Lara's life. A little interesting, but mostly some hackwork was felt.

It is better than Tomb Raider III and Angel of darkness but it is nowhere near as good as other games in the series. It is quite buggy. And the acting is bleh. I only recommend it to Tomb Raider fans. Expand

    Mais officiellement, il s’agit des « traces de Lara Croft » et à propos, regarde un peu ma bécasse, t’as encore laissé des traces de pneus au fond de la cuvette, bordel de merde ! fais un peu attention… Quoi qu’il en soit, en anglais, le titre me semble mieux adapté puisque ça s’appelle plus simplement les « Tomb Raider Chronicles ».

    En tout cas, si le jeu est censé fonctionner sur Windows XP, il faudra se cantonner au 640×480 en 16 bits : au dessus, il plante directement ! la manette, pour sa part, je crois qu’elle n’est pas supportée et je n’ai vu aucune option la concernant… dans les options. Et d’ailleurs, même la souris n’est pas supportée !

    Et tant qu’on y est, l’installation complète n’est pas supportée non plus ! le jeu copie environ 1 méga et demi sur le disque dur (j’ai bien dit un méga, pas un giga…) point barre ; il charge donc tout du putain de cd, ça troue le cul, vieux ! déjà que le SVGA (accéléré direct 3D quand même !) n’est pas folichon… et le pire dans tout ça, c’est que c’est limité à du 30 im/s et que ça ne les tient même pas (sur une 6770) mais putain ce portage PC porté avec le cul par les stagiaires de Core Design !

    Donc, il faut jouer tout au clavier à partir du cd cette pouffe polygonée qui fait des pirouettes et qui doit vider un chargeur sur chaque ennemi (ils sont vraiment très résistants) ; on ne va pas se mentir, c’est injouable et ça reste en tant que TPS (mais en est-ce vraiment un ?) l’un des pires TPS jamais démoulés et ce depuis le tout début des aventures de Lara Grotte euh Lara Grolle, pardon Lara Crotte…

    Des niveaux en labyrinthe des mes couilles, des sauts millimétrés de mes deux, une histoire sortie de mon fion et une non-jouabilité à rendre fou n’importe qui. Bref, une putain de grosse daubasse fidèle à sa « réputation » (de grosse daube) !
