Tomb Raider Underworld
Please work on the controls
I really enjoyed the story, and the puzzles (while fairly simple) are fun.
BUT! The controls (especially while doing critical jumps) are absolutely AWEFUL. The game wants you to be precise, but there is no real way to be so. To compound the problem, the screen zooms in whenever you are next to an object (say, a wall...) which makes looking where you need to leap very difficult. And exactly which way do you need to push the control to leap in that very critical direction? UGH!
I hope they continue to make games for this magnificent series. But the devs need to slap themselves if they don't correct the control and camera problem.
One of the best Tomb Raiders I've played!!
This game is simply amazing. When I first played it, I love the feel of the characters movement and control (loved the feature in the other Tomb Raiders such as Anniversary when you were able to reload your guns on your own as well as manual grappling), especially playing on the hardest difficulty, Master Survivalist. The graphics are awesome, just can't wait until the new Tob Raider: A Survivor is Born releases.:)
this tr game is a disgrace to the series.
tr anniversary and tr legend are great games but not underworld first off the controls are stupidly oversensitive compared to legend and anniversary the only good thing about this game is the graphics, they favor harder puzzles and no boss fights like in legend and anniversary, i just think they should have left the controls the same as the other games, buy anniversary or legend, you'll be mad you wasted 12$ on this game.
Ugh, what a waste of money. The first hour or two of the game you just walk around climbing and jumping. The camera angles are pitty, such as you have to jump to a ledge but can't see the ledge to jump to, mostly like a leap of faith. When you do get to combat it's pitiful. I imagined this beeing like the old tomb raiders, like the ones for the original playstation, but no. They're re-mastered it into something awful. Not recommended, even if your a tomb raider fan, cause I am, or was i should say, and found this game beyond dissapointing. Now im stuck with 50gs in achievements on the game which makes me mad cause im not going to put myself through misery to make it better.
Not Recommended for New Gamers
I am not an experienced gamer, and I found this game extremely difficult to play. I couldn't figure out how to get past the first chapter. I found it hard to try to continue playing, because I couldn't figure out exactly what I was supposed to do. Like the other tombraider games, it is very puzzle-intensive. Some people might be ok with this, but it just was not for me. I got frustrated and gave up playing the game very quickly. I would not recommend it for inexperienced gamers.
This game is amazing graphic wise because the scenery is wonderful and lovely!!!! Sadly the gameplay is very boring and dull. I still really enjoy the game because of the challenging puzzles and the scenery. I reccomend this game to almost everyone. If you are looking for a shooter then don't play this game, if you are looking for a puzzle game then this is your game!!
This game is beautiful and a must-have for many gamers. It is an all-time masterpiece and I played through it twice. The mechanics, like the assassin's Creed series, are perfect. The game is intriguing and extremely interesting. You'll be hooked! One of my favorite games!
This game.....wow. I didn't know you could make a game with such an awful control layout \ that you feel like you are walking without controling it. It is a boring game with cheesy characters and everything else. DO NOT BUY!!!!
Tomb Raider at it's near best.
Lara Croft never felt better in her action role game play to console. I can't stop playing this game just to see what lye's ahead. I'm about 5 hours into the game and I'm hooked. Graphics are top notch, elements of water, land, animals, etc. are brought to life. Water effects are great. This game does require some thinking to push forward, but has all the tools to complete each level to its end. The camera is kind of a hindered now and then but I use the pocket camera to figure out my next moves if needed. So far so good with this title and at the price it goes for now it's a definite purchase, go get it.
This game is awesome!
Sorry if it seems like I gave this game too high of a rating. But i've been a Tomb Raider fan since the beginning. And I gotta say, I absolutely love Lara. She is awesome. Ever since the very first game she kept getting better and better. I'll admit the ending is a bit of a bummer. But this is still a great game. And in case some of you didn't know, there is a new Tomb Raider coming out towards the end of the year. I'm definitly going to buy it!
