Right - let’s go adventuring

Tomb Raider: Underworld

I completed Tomb Raider: Underworld last night. I’m working on a full review at the moment, which will hopefully go up later in the week, but, for the time being, let’s just say that it’s a great game that I heartily recommend. Legend is still my favourite game in the series since the Crystal Dynamics reboot - actually, scratch that, my favourite of all time - but this is a very strong follow-up that continues the story and develops the gameplay in a plausible and agreeable way. My main complaint would be the at times obtuse nature of the puzzles: I had to use a walkthrough on a number of occasions, generally after a good half-hour of running around in circles trying to work out where to go next. This is, in fact, my main reason for preferring Legend, which was considerably less daunting (although not a cakewalk by any stretch). Otherwise, though, I definitely recommend this game to those who enjoy platforming adventures in this mould, particularly those who, like me, found the similar Prince of Persia 2008 too simplistic.
