Summary

Tomb Raider: Underworld is a lackluster adventure. Lara looks great, but gameplay is predictable and thwarted by camera issues.

We like

  • Lara's character model and animations are spot on
  • Some beautifully rendered locations

We dislike

  • Predictable, bland puzzles
  • Poor camera angles makes exploration frustrating
  • Combat is lackluster and overly simple
