Summary

Thankyou, Eidos for the fifth installment of top heavy totty...

The Good

The originality behind this game was shocking, due to the fact that Tomb Raiders 1, 2 & 3 all followed the same storyline really sets this one apart from the other 4. The idea of being able to play Lara's history (and uncertain future) makes this smooth, seamless game a delight to play. Lara's new acrobatic skills also come in handy.

The Bad

The limited number of levels and weapons made this game quite dissapointing, but still, it's Tomb Raider, and we should all be grateful. This game has a heart of gold, but sometimes the ease of killing Lara makes it a dust collector on my shelf.

The Bottom Line

An original game, keeping to the traditional "run, jump shoot" idea of Tomb Raider, with it's intriguing storyline that is dramatically different makes it a fun game to play.
