The Best!
21 March 2001 | by (Ottawa,Ontario) – See all my reviews

Tomb Raider, the sequel to Tomb Raider 1 must i say more. This Tomb Raider has got to be the best Tomb Raider of them all. The story is just plain better than all of them together. The latest Tomb Raider 4 was just too plain confusing, and 3 was o.k. but it was missing something. The only thing that was good in Tomb Raider 3 would have to be probably the dune buggy. Tomb Raider 2. The story was great but it could have improved a bit, and i think a lot of people would agree with me on that one.
