Summary

Lara returns with more puzzles, more adventure, and less action...

The Good

The Graphics: Getting better and better, but Lara still likes to disappear into walls... But the 3D graphics are really good and the movements are lifelike.

The Adventure Side: Well, we have MORE puzzles, MORE jumping, MORE swimming, and MORE thinking to do, this would be considered a bad thing, right? Well, call me a freak, but I LOVE it, I hope the upcoming "Tomb Raider: Next Generation" will give us more of this, well, it has promised that, and with the new gameplay style and all "TR" will be getting better with every new release.

Level Design: Outdoor areas, better design, making the puzzles easier to figure out (in "TR1" there were some really weird puzzles that were blocked by a ledge or something on the walls, so it was really bad), but still although this is a great game, it still has it's flaws, mentioned below...

The Bad

Action: Well, there are more enemies and all, but you have to agree that the action is less here, I know that there's a big T-Rex at the end and all, but the adventure took over the action here, this is the only flaw, so I'll end this review quickly...

The Bottom Line

Lara has more areas, more enemies, and more levels to conquer. All excellent stuff!
