This review is from: Tomb Raider Underworld (PS3) (Video Game)
I got this game for christmas and couldn't wait, the graphics are excellent lara looks absolutely fine but unfortunately i do feel it is missing something.
With the old games there were so many more pick ups, In underworld you don't pick up weapons as you go along you choose them before you go to the next level which i don't like. Finding the pair of Uzi's randomly somewhere is part of the adventure and running out of ammo at the worse possible moment and trying to get out of that situation with some average pistols is part of the fun. The treasures are pointless they are these crystal things that unlock stuff, when before if you did a bit of exploring you'll find the secret and get a medpack and some ammo for a gun you don't have, and that would make you wonder what gun your getting next, but unfortunately you don't get that in Underworld. some of the moves lara does are pretty cool and there are some cool things she does when she's running if you press circle 3 times which are quite cool. i thought the bike part jumped a bit and other times the camera angle screws up, but i found this variable. I think my main bug is the lack of pick ups really all you pick is medpacks and things you need to solve the puzzles, no weapon add ons or anything which is dissapointing really they could of done alot with that.
I'd still buy it but keep in mind it hasn't fufilled its full potentialm, it could be better.
