Storyline

Even though this game is a sequel to AOD, it can be played even if no Tomb Raider was played before it. This adventure takes Lara beyond the looking glass. What started with an excursion to the ruins of Tiwanaku, ended with Lara wielding Excalibur against her enemies. Motorcycle riding, multiple weapon choices, and nice outfits make this game just a tad more special. Make sure you play it, I don't know what I would've done if I hadn't. Written by Nate37

Quotes

[first lines]
Child Lara: [looking at her drawing of Yetis] Just because no one's ever caught one doesn't mean they're not real.
Lady Croft: That is very true, but perhaps they don't wish to be found. I've heard they're rather fierce.

Short but Sweet
16 April 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I bought Tomb Raider the day of the UK release, I finished the main story 2 days later. But I'm still hunting for the rewards which is a week later and I'm almost done!

Brilliant game, nice and simple storyline (more or less), which plays on one of the best legends of all time, King Arthur etc.

The levels could have done with being longer, and it would have been better if they're were more. But what was there was brilliant (except for the motorbike bits, a little dull and repetitive). There are plenty of Tombs, my favourite being in Africa. There is a nice change of pace in the Japan and Russia levels that are more modern. All have great puzzles and secrets along the way.

Lara has more to say for once and is voiced perfectly by Keely Hawes of Spooks fame. All the dialogue is perfectly executed for the character of Lara, the scenes with Rutland and Takamoto are excellent and show she is capable of more than making big jumps! A fine role model for young women. Her movements fit her dialogue in the cutscenes, and in the game play she flows like an eagle on an up-drift! Lara is aided by Zip (her tech guy), Alister (her history/research guy) and Winston (butler, minus the hump from the old games). Winston doesn't get much of a look-in but the other 2 provide comic relief, and insight into the story. The weapons are OK, but you only really need her Pistols, which are upgradable.

The only serious problem i have with this Tomb Raider is the mansion. Its crap compared to previous efforts. You can only go outside into a courtyard and apart from that there are 5 rooms. There's a lot to find, but it just lacks the spark of running around the huge house, with the butler slowly strolling after you. It doesn't compare well. A mixture of the two would be perfect.

All in all a good game. Minor flaws in comparison to other Tomb Raider games, but they weren't perfect either. A mixture of the game play and story of Legend with the length and mansion of previous games is all we need. There will clearly be a sequel due to the huge cliffhanger at the end of the game that leaves you wanting more, but hopefully you won't have to wait too long! 8.5/10

P.S She looks great! Real for once!
