All told, I had a great time playing The Last Revelation, with the exceptions I listed above. In fact, I enjoyed it so much that I've purchased the first two games in the series (for the Playstation, though--hopefully I'll be able to deal with the controls a bit more intuitively that way).
In a game that could have been just more of the same, Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation is a worthy sequel in an already formidable franchise.

This is your opportunity to experience one of the biggest phenomena to ever hit the game industry – on any platform. You can purchase Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation directly from Aspyr, but if you want to have it delivered tomorrow, for free, click on over to Outpost.com. Those of you who already have one of two Lara Croft CDs in your collection should add this title to it immediately. The game is that good. You will not be disappointed with the work Westlake and Aspyr put into this game.
As is customary to this series, Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation is an excellent blend of action, adventure and story. The characters are well designed and acted out (Werner Von Croy makes a tremendous adversary), and the levels are a blast to explore. Even if there were no scorpions or skeletons (skeletons rock!) to kill, exploring the tombs would still be more entertaining than many games currently on the market. No, you just can't go wrong with any of the Tomb Raider games, and the Last Revelation is certainly no exception to that rule.
If you’re looking for more of Lara’s run-and-gun style of archaeology, this is your game. But if you’re not in the mood for leftovers, I’d pass on Lara’s latest exploits and spend my money on one of her previous games.
