Storyline

Lara Croft is the daughter to a rich aristocratic English family. She is also nothing like her family, as she writes about her expeditions for rare artifacts. Natla Industries ("Creator of all things bright and beautiful," claims Natla's lackey, Larson) has hired Lara to find a rare artifact called the Scion. But what is Natla's interest with the Scion? Is Lara being used? Most importantly, what's a nice girl like Lara Croft doing in an adventure game like this? Written by Pat McCurry <ccgrad97@aol.com>

Alternate Versions

Later on in time, where there is the Tomb Raider Level Editor which was released with Tomb Raider Chronicles. A member of the infamous Tomb Raider Forums, known as "Ggctuk" (Gareth Thomas) managed to recreated the Unfinished Business series while including many new features. These are new weapons, new sounds and also a new Lara model/outfit. The levels were also re-arranged to make a better understanding of the story for the game. See more »

Really Excellent!
24 January 2003 | by PlayerSSSee all my reviews

This game has you do it all. You go through all kinds of different obstacles while fighting a different array of enemies. The story is not the greatest, but hey, what can you expect for the first game in the series. Tomb Raider also threw in a little something different with Lara Croft breaking normal hero boundaries. Almost all video game (and real) action heroes were men until she came along. Don't get me wrong, there were quite a few women trying to be everybody's saviour, but Lara is much better. Gameplay is great, looks good for its time, and is fun to play. My rating 10/10
