    Read this review - honest and unbiased!!!

    Why score it 9/10? Well I don't normally write reviews but after the panning this game is getting from the reviews here I felt compelled to set the record straight! First of all, let's address the difficulty. In the opt... Read Full Review

What Gamespot Users have to say about Tomb Raider: Underworld

  • Review Score:6.5

    Bland and hackneyed, but mildly entertaining nonetheless.

    Let's face it, Lara Croft is an iconic character. Her snarky English demeanor, adventurous resourcefulness, and voluminous bosom are among the most memorable traits of any female video-game protagonist to date. Sadly, ... Read Full Review

    Great storyboard, fantastic concept art and new abilities, but still lacks some gameplay and puzzle innovation.

    For gamers who like Tomb Raider games, Underworld is really a great option. It has all the elements a Tomb Raider lover wants on a Lara's game. Unfortunately, that is also the most negative point of the game: lacks innov... Read Full Review

    Bottom line, I find myself only interested in one thing: Lara Croft.

    First of all, I'm not a tomb raider fan. I never played it, never really looked at it, I know it is a adventure game but I wasn't into that gene in the past. Underworld to me is a shock. Lara was incredibly beautiful and... Read Full Review

    Nice level design, crippled by unresponding controls. Difficulty hard should have been called normal.

    I considered Tomb Raider series to be done and buried. This game could save it... The levels are nicely designed, letting you feel the place. Everything is breathing. The enemies are each having a little bit different a... Read Full Review

    Tomb Raider Underworld is about as fun as a slice of toast

    Tomb Raider Underworld is one of the most disappointing games I have ever played, I had very high expectations for it, considering the previous entries, Tomb Raider Legend and Anneversary, were superb games which revital... Read Full Review

    Glitched, broken, and buggy.

    How fitting that 2008, the year that Lara Croft reached her lowest point, is also the year that gave us Nathan Drake, a far more appealing and engaging treasure hunter/adventurer. The styles of the franchises have oft be... Read Full Review

    Lara new look Average performance & graphic

    Lara Croft Tomb Raider Underworld is by all meaning, disapointing. The graphics, it's so average that you can play on PS2 Console and you're not noticed the difference how good the graphic between PS2 & PS3. The gameplay... Read Full Review

    GOOD GAME

    Though it hasn't got much in the way of plot, (or maybe it didn't make sense because I haven't played the previous installment, Legend), the game is well worth playing if you like prince of persia and uncharted types of ... Read Full Review
