Product Description

Platform: PlayStation 3

Tomb Raider: Underworld for PlayStation 3 by Eidos resumes where Tomb Raider: Legend left off. This installment introduces a new, interactive playing environment that gives players a chance to immerse themselves more fully into the game. Players once again take the role of Lara Croft as she explores such wide-ranging places as the Arctic, Mexico, and beneath the Mediterranean Sea.

Interactive Worlds Introduces Realistic gameplay
Unlike the previous games in the series, Lara's environment is now much more realistic and interactive. Footprints will be left in mud, for example, but only until it rains and then they will wash away. Lara's shirt will also get wet, and she's more likely to lose her grip if she is standing on a slippery, rain-soaked ledge. When the sun comes out, her shirt will dry and the slippery surfaces regain their friction.

In Underworld, Lara also has a lot more flexibility in how she makes her way through a level, as there is often more than one way to get from here to there. She can now climb walls with texture and rocky outcroppings to reach areas she previously wouldn't have been able to access.

All of these additions have been made to give the game a non-linear, open feel. Players can interactive with the environment by doing things they find to be intuitive, and the game will respond in an appropriate way. When Lara interacts with trees, for example, she will push aside leaves using either one or two hands depending on whether or not she's holding something. These details give a lifelike, immersive sensation to the game.

New Melee Combat System
Underworld introduces a new melee combat system that requires players to strategically strike with offensive, defensive, and evasive maneuvers. Lara can now attack enemies with different punches, kicks, knees, and other acrobatic onslaughts. Items lying on the ground, such as poles that were previously walked on, can be picked up and swung at enemies. Players can also perform a greater variety of actions with weapons; for example, Lara can now hold onto a ledge with one hand and fire a gun with the other.

Realistic Enemy and Animal AI
The AI in Tomb Raider: Underworld has also taken a big step forward--both enemies and animals now make independent decisions based on their surroundings, employ ambush and squad tactics when fighting, and will retreat if deemed necessary.

With updated graphics and a more immersive and realistic gameplay, Tomb Raider: Underworld will have both fans and newcomers excited about the newest installment in this popular video game-pinup franchise.




Tomb Raider: Underworld is loaded with a new melee combat system, various weapons, and smarter AI for both enemies and animals.

4.0 out of 5 stars Three and a half stars rounded up. November 23, 2008
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I had been anticipating Tomb Raider Underworld for a long time. Ever since the cliffhanger ending in Legend, I don't think there was a Tomb Raider fan alive who wasn't eagerly waiting for the resolve.

A few notes:
If you haven't played Legend, you really need to. This is a direct continuation of its story line. If you don't know what happened in Legend, you'll be lost with the story contained in Underworld. A passing knowledge of what happened in Anniversary would also be advised.

The good:
There was a conscious effort on the programmer's part that if it seems like Lara should be able to do something, she can do it. For the first time the technology was available to let Lara do virtually anything the programmers could imagine. Poles Lara could only swing from before, she can now swing, perch, balance and fire a gun from. By far, this version of Lara can do more than she could in any previous game.

The areas are huge and, for the most part, non-linear. There are a couple sections near the end where you're basically being herded down a single corridor. But for the most part, this is the epitome of what a "go anywhere, do anything" exploration game should be. If you know exactly what you're supposed to do, you can probably breeze through certain puzzles. But if you want to take time to explore and see what the game has to offer, you'll find it has a lot.

The story is also very involving. Like I said, it's a continuation from Legend. So if you've played that, you already have a vested interest in what happens to these characters. Underworld really delivers on finally resolving the story between Lara and Amanda, Lara and Natla...and even Natla and Amanda.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great ideas, but poorly executed November 25, 2008
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I just got the game today and played for a few hours. And these are my opinion on the game.

Bad:
- Environment collisions are bad. You could fall quite easily even from a simple ledge, due to bad collision detection. And you often bump into invisible walls, or even stuck on them, in stupid places that they shouldn't be there.
- Animations look bad. The poses are alright, but timings and in-betweens are bad and too fast. I feel like watching a speedy Charlie Chaplin's film. Lara looks like a monkey when she does wall-climbing. And too-fast animations also cause very annoying errors in controling the character.
- Camera sucks. They make the camera follows Lara too much and track-in too fast. It could cause controling mistakes and a headache. Especially when you stand too close to environment collision, the camera will shake like crazy. I feel dizzy after playing for a few hours.
- Combat system are pretty bad. The gunplay doesn't include cover system, which makes you take the bullets too much. Dodging moves don't help much because a lousy camera don't stay still, so you lose track of enemies very easily.

Good:
Well... it's Tomb Raider after all. That means the story and puzzles are still interesting enough to keep you playing, even with lousy controls and camera. The models, textures, shaders, and lighting look great.

In conclusion:
The developers tried to put new things to keep the series fresh. Unfortunately, they don't really work. On the other hand, the weak points destroy what made the past games in the series so great.

I wouldn't recommend this one to anybody new to the series. Judging from this one, you might hate the entire series all together. Tomb Raider Legend and Anniversary are better than this one.

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This game has it's good notes. If you like treasure hunting or puzzle solving games along with shooting and climbing/jumping, then you will like this game. The only problem is the numerous bugs. I can't believe that they would release a game with this many bugs. The camera sucks at times...sometimes all you can see is black. If you walk towards a wall and try to walk away, she goes into a spastic glitch. You have to wait 2 to 3 seconds to get out of it. There are numerous glitches that the company knows about that you have to go back to a previous level to do something stupid that you would think would never make any difference just to move on! There is one level where the ramp is missing if you died at a certain point 3 levels back. Consider the bummer there, knowing that you will lose all of your progress this far to go back and fix it. It's almost a game killer. There are very high notes on this game though. It is a very fun game to play. The puzzle aspect of it makes it very interesting to play and takes you away from the normal run shoot, run shoot of most games. My 2 cents anyway...

3.0 out of 5 stars Tomb Raider: Glitch May 30, 2009
By name
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Fun (at times) but glitch ridden. In one level the only way we knew how to get out was through a glitch! There were so many glitches it's hard to remember all of them. One glitch at the end of the game, "The Boss" got stuck shooting at a pillar I needed to climb in order to proceed. "The Boss" continued getting stuck throughout the entire level. They also gave Lara all kinds of new climbing abilities, but they did not work out the bugs. She would end up floating in the in mid air, or holding a corner that didn't exist. The enemies also had quirks. With the humans, you could unload both your pistols twice into them and they would not die....but if you kicked them they would die almost instantly!

Pros:

The motorcycle was cool.

Environments were beautiful (when nothing was moving).

Puzzles ok.

Really cool graphics (when Lara wasn't invisible).

Cons:

Bad enemy programing.

Bad enemy graphics.

Grapple problems.

Bad camera (got stuck on Lara's butt often).

Jumping through ledges/pillars.

Stuck in walls, rocks, etc.

Getting stuck halfway through traps & surviving, but unable to proceed.

Having to reload the game because you did the puzzle out of order.

And many more....

Game had promise but was rushed. Almost unplayable due to glitches. Not worth $50.
