Quoted from Tomb Raider Underworld Reviews:
Check out these quotes from Tomb Raider Underworld reviews & previews
"From quick glances at screenshots, it can be challenging to tell Tomb Raider games apart. It's not that they're not different -- they're just not different enough that you can spot a new main character or a unique type of gameplay at a glance."
"Like her previous two games, Underworld is a welcome, if slightly flawed, addition to the franchise."
"While it doesn’t propel the series forward to new heights, Underground is certainly an exciting and challenging Tomb Raider game worthy of Lady Croft’s sizeable talents. Yes, the returning problems from the first game are back but these new tombs make for a rich and rewarding experience for Tomb Raider fans."
"Despite all our complaints, Underworld is still absolutely worth playing for Tomb Raider fans. The problems don't detract from the core of the game, which is really entertaining. What they do highlight, however, is that this far into the series, with Crystal Dynamics already having cut its teeth on the franchise, Tomb Raider should know what it's about. We shouldn't have to deal with severely sub-standard combat. We shouldn't have to deal with weird mechanics that seem to have been added in at random. This should be a much slicker product. Still, it's good fun for the most part, and at the end of the day that's why we play, right?"
"Tomb Raider Underworld is a decent game that Lara Croft fans will enjoy, but it’s not quite the experience that will live up to or even surpass that of Legend. It’s a shame, really, because there was a large amount of promise, particularly with the “What Could Lara Do?” system, which highlighted good controls for the game, more realistic animations for Lara, and slightly improved combat. Unfortunately, the game was held back by “What The Technology Couldn’t,” leaving Underworld firmly in Tomb Raider: Legend’s shadow."
