The Last Revelation goes back to it's roots for a feast of varied puzzles, but moves forward in terms of graphical quality. The fact that there is less action in between the puzzles doesn't make the gameplay boring. In fact it has the opposite effect. It actually generates an unsettling trepidation as to when and where you will be attacked. Fear is a powerful weapon. There will always be a few groans and grumbles but lining up TR4 against some of the other dross I have had to endure over the past twelve months bares no comparison. If you didn't enjoy the last 3 Tomb Raider adventures then stay well clear of Lara's latest quest. For the millions of others I say this is the best yet. Go get some!

Lara gehört wahrlich noch nicht alten Eisen und sorgt auch in ihrem viertem Abenteuer für spielerische Höchstleistung. Die Fokussierung auf einen begrenzten Schauplatz, die zahlreichen Neuerungen (Rätsel, Schalter und Gegenstände) und die ungemein dichte Atmosphäre sorgen gegenüber dem dritten Teil für durchweg positive Impulse. Dass Last Revelation keine Revolution ist - also keine spielerisch neuen Wege, wie beispielsweise MGS, geht - war uns schon im Vorfeld klar. Die Grenzen der Technik sind erreicht und so manche Grafikfehler einfach vorprogrammiert. Des Weiteren müssen die zahlreichen dunklen Areas und die zu unpräzise (analoge) Steuerung dies Charakters kritisiert werden. Dennoch wird jedem Spieler, der sich mit Lara auf Abenteuerreise begibt, wieder eine packende und atmosphärische Geschichte geboten, die Winterabende mit stundenlangem Spielspaß füllen wird.
The Last Revelation, we can confidently reveal, will sell by the truck-load, and deservedly so. It’s the definitive Tomb Raider experience and one that shouldn’t be missed by veteran ‘Raiders’ and Lara virgins alike. So what are you waiting for? Get off your Sphynx-ter and walk like an Egyptian down to your nearest stockist.

På det hela taget känns Laras fjärde äventyr som en bonusversion av de gamla spelen. Allt är lite bättre, men ingenting är nytt.

Dat er gekozen is voor één grote lokatie, in plaats van verschillende plekken over de gehele planeet verspreid, is een prima idee geweest. Nu nog Lara en de gameplay in een nieuw sausje dippen en we kunnen weer een paar jaar vooruit met deze babe.

La Révélation Finale n'est pas une véritable révolution. Les détracteurs de Lara le resteront, ses fans la retrouveront avec plaisir.

Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation is easily the best game since the original, ground breaking Tomb Raider. However, besides a couple new moves and some better textures, it's exactly the same game. It's a breath of tomb air: spooky, challenging and enthralling, but perhaps a bit stale, sealed underground for a little too long.

Je ne crache pas sur Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation cependant. C’est un jeu que je conseille surtout aux fans de la série, car c’est tout de même un excellent jeu et beaucoup de travail a été mis dans ce dernier et il a définitivement ses moments. Même que parfois, il nous semble être le meilleur Tomb Raider jamais fait! Mais dieu que je n'aime pas les deux derniers mondes. Le jeu aurait bénéficié d’être plus court et moins répétitif vers la fin. Du genre, à la place d’étirer le jeu pour rien, prendre ce temps pour corriger certains détails pour en faire un jeu plus court mais mieux balancé.
Well, it took three sequels, but Eidos and Core have finally got the formula right again. The Tomb Raider series has finally returned to the glory that was first uncovered in the first game. However, it is still too little too late. If Last Revelation had been the first sequel then it would have been a much better game overall. However, since it's the fourth in the series, we were expecting more and not just more of the same.
Tomb Raider 4 reste un bon jeu qui contentera (je n'en doute pas :) les passionnés de Lara. Mais Eidos est loin de nous avoir offert le renouveau tant attendu et la déception est grande quand on voit que les erreurs persistent et que rien ne change vraiment au pays de Lara Croft.
tThey say the third time's a charm in most cases. With each of the first three Tomb Raider episodes, released one year after another, there were incremental improvements (some would call them innovations) added to entice gamers to come back. But who's kidding who? The reason most gamers came back, aside from a secret, archaeological desire to spelunk, was to lead buxom Lara through a never-ending series of catacombs and labyrinths. That's not to detract from the often near-genius level design, displayed in abundance in the seminal "part two." Unfortunately, Eidos is all too well aware of its greatest asset, but now that we've progressed beyond the difficult part one, the deviously designed part two, and the more-of-the-same-but-look-at-Lara's-two-new-moves part three, what exactly is there to bring us back to the unofficial part four, The Last Revelation?
