Deel IV ziet er in ieder geval goed uit op de Dreamcast. Dreamcast bezitters die nog op zoek zijn naar een uitdagende en lang speelbaar action-adventure, vallen zich met Miss Croft geen buil.
At the end of the day, do you want us to be brutally honest? Well, okay. Despite looking absolutely spanking gorgeous, running smoother than a greased Linford Christie and having more levels than the world’s biggest multistorey car park, Last Revelation is NOT the best Tomb Raider ever. Gasp. Didn’t think we were going to say that, did you? No matter what is done to the game, nothing will EVER surpass the excellence of Ms Croft’s very first adventure and that’s a fact, Jack. Still, you can’t actually play it on the Dreamcast so that sort of knocks that one on the head. Saying that though, Last Revelation does come an incredibly close second in the title race for ‘Best Tomb Raider Game’. Virtually all the problems we’ve ever had with Tomb Raider have been ironed out over the years, making the Dreamcast version practically a musthave purchase for both fans of the genre and first-time players alike.
Tomb Raider 4 sur Dreamcast souffre d’une jouabilité encore moins bonne que sur les autres supports, avec une technique inférieure au PC et pas révolutionnaire en regard de la PSX – bref la première appartition Dreamcastienne de l’héroïne est plutôt manquée.
While Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation is an acceptable game based on its own merits and set against its own legacy, it is for all intents and purposes indistinguishable from the games that came before it
. It reeks of a ready-to-go game engine and a level designer going through the motions, while someone else comes up with a new move for Lara. Teetering on the brink, Eidos
' premier franchise is one step away from being bludgeoned into complacency. As it stands, Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation reeks of a heartless cash-in and the game, for lack of a better term, simply has no soul.
Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation represents a continuing effort by Eidos to confuse the hell out of me. Are they committed to producing quality Dreamcast titles like Soul Reaver and Sword of the Berserk? Or are they content to directly port 32-bit Playstation games to the Dreamcast with little or no improvements, like Fighting Force 2 and Tomb Raider? Either way, The Last Revelation is a lesson in mediocrity.
Chances are you have heard about and played the Tomb Raider series
before. It all comes down to one of three things: if you enjoyed Tomb Raider before, you'll like this; if you didn't like Tomb Raider before, you're definitely not going to enjoy this latest incarnation. If you have never tried out Tomb Raider before, however, this is a good version of the game to take Lara around for a spin.
I'll close with this: There are so many better places you could be putting your money that I cannot stress enough that this game simply is not worth your time. Even if you liked the rest of the series, I am here to tell you that there is a better life out there -- just look at Eidos' own efforts like Soul Reaver
. Unless you actively try to avoid this sort of rubbish, it will continue to plague our industry, and I for one have had enough. Go out and buy it if you've got some odd obsession with making Eidos
rich via your frustration, but if you want to have fun, go pick up a real game like Kain, MDK2
or Rayman 2
. This is just painful.
The Video Game Critic
You'll experience some tense moments during your adventure, but Last Revelation is rarely fun. I enjoyed the jeep driving sequences, but only because I was able to run people over. Does that make me a sociopath? You can save your progress at any time, but there are no checkpoints, and it's easy to forget to save. Rest assured you'll remember the instant after an untimely impalement (as if there was another kind). Last Revelation contains one huge glitch that proves to be the nail in the coffin. In the Valley of Kings level, if you don't take the jeep with you to a certain location, you become hopelessly stuck. Clearly Eidos was just going through the motions with Last Revelation, so it's no surprise that Tomb Raider's popularity went into free-fall mode after this.
