Tomb Raider Underworld isn’t a game that will completely change the gaming world or the series for that matter. However, the game is a faithful evolution of the formula presented in the previous games. If you haven’t touched a Tomb Raider game...

Game Chronicles Magazine got its humble start as a strategy guide site for various titles, but none more so than the Tomb Raider series. Our founding leader spent much time exploring every nook and cranny in the efforts to give players like myself a...

As a Tomb Raider sequel, Underworld refines rather than revolutionises and, as such, it could well be the best game in the series so...

Tomb Raider Underworld is a worthy predecessor. New mysteries which arent too difficult have to be solved in nicely designed levels. From time to time controling Lara can be tricky and frustrating when you - just before finishing a mission - fall...

Luckily for us the game is super easy in a way that it offers a checkpoint every few seconds so you really don’t have to worry about backtracking a lot. Simplifying matters even further is the fact that you can now head on to your Field Manual...

Underworld has pushed the series in a bright new direction, and despite a few flaws theres plenty of excitement to be had. Animations, environments and sounds are all marvellously executed, and although combat may be a bit rusty the size and scope of...

Lara Croft is still video gamings most successful heroine, with this being her ninth escapade in 12 years. Gameplay is the usual combination of gymnastics, gunfights and exploration. Underworld succeeds in intertwining these three elements, making...

Today, I’m returning to a familiar set of breasts, a set that have quite possibly been the most famous since their conception in 1996. In case you are lost, I am talking about the breasts of Lara Croft. Yes, I am reviewing the new(ish) Tomb...

Lara tries to produce action and adventure to evoke some excitement in Tomb Raider: Underworld but there isnt enough solid action to back up the platforming. All in all, Ms Crofts latest effort falls a bit flat with a dated feel; its obvious that...

Crystal Dynamics deserve acclaim, not just for having created their best Tomb Raider game so far, but for something even more remarkable: listening to criticism. They’ve taken on board the fact that their strength lies in epic puzzles and...

Birds cackle overhead, ominous, bruised clouds swim through the sky, noises up ahead, ancient ruins, and a gateway. Heres Lara, looking more believable than ever (what polygonal breasts?), standing at the entrance to what appears to be some kind of...

International Review By Ocaholic German on

Tomb Raider Underworld ist ein würdiger Nachfolger der vorhergehenden Titel. Neue Rätsel, die eines mittleren Schwierigkeitsgrades sind, fordern einem und man wird mit schön gemachten Levels belohnt. Die Steuerung ist zeitweise etwas...

Lara Crofts dritter Auftritt unter Crystal Dynamics steht erneut ganz im Zeichen herausfordernder Kletterpartien und knackiger Rätsel. Zwar ist das Gameplay im Kern unverändert geblieben, dank prächtiger Kulissen und neuer, interessanter...
