Four newly discovered and previously untold adventures are revealed when the missing Lara Croft's closest friends gather in her honour. As they reminisce about her past exploits, they learn new details about her life as well as the lives of characters from her past adventures. Lara journeys from the ruins of Rome, to the bowels of a German U-boat, to the rooftops of a hi-tech city in a search for four ancient artefacts. The game uses the same graphics engine used in Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation, but introduces new moves: tightrope walking, parallel bar swinging, and a hand-to-hand stealth attack. An enhanced inventory system allows for greater combinations of a variety of weapons and items. Create your own adventure with the Tomb Raider level editor, which includes a tutorial level and all of the tools required to construct custom levels.
Lara Croft, cultural icon, cover girl and scourge of wildlife everywhere was last seen buried beneath an Egyptian pyramid at the end of Tomb Raider: the Last Revelation. Despite this apparent demise, Lara returns in Tomb Raider Chronicles, an adventure that features previously unseen episodes from her career. Old friends of Lara who have gathered for her funeral and to swap stories about her exploits introduce the stories.
The first level is set in Rome, and is classic Lara; plenty of jumping and puzzle solving with a minimum of gunplay and is reminiscent of the very first Tomb Raider--it even features the comedy bad guys Pierre and Larson from that game. This chapter also serves as an introduction to Lara's various moves and is a real nostalgia-fest for long-time fans.
The other chapters have distinct themes: on a spooky deserted island an unarmed teenage Lara must get through by wits alone, there is an action-packed level set on a submarine and, most intriguing of all, Lara infiltrates a high-tech building and utilises various stealth techniques. This is very Metal Gear Solid-esque and possible indicates the direction the series will take in future. (Lara's not really dead? Now there's a surprise.)
Unfortunately, the fiddly control system still remains, and the graphics have only been given a slight polish, but to combat this, an array of customary new moves have been added--this time Lara can use a tightrope, for example--but these are essentially cosmetic. The gameplay overall hasn't evolved much, but thankfully the puzzles are less obscure this time round, and the levels are tightly designed which cuts down on the aimless wandering that was common in the middle games of the series.
Tomb Raider fans will be very happy with what is probably the most purely enjoyable game since the first. Lara-phobes will take more convincing, but all the hype that surrounds her shouldn't obscure the fact that the divine Ms Croft hasn't appeared in a bad game yet and Tomb Raider Chronicles is no exception. --Michael Bartley

Even if you played the previous games, and even if you didn't: This game will amaze you! At least I LOVE it!
Buy it for the sake of it, make Eidos some money to come up with somit a bit better. But I still love tomb raider, and this game has put the icing on the cake for me :) ( O Y O )
it lacks the sense of long term story line in the flow of the gameplay simply because it is a set of four different adventures not running in a constant time flow --she jumps back and forth to different periods in her life according to the remininises of her friends--this changes the way you enjoy the game some what--as reaching the end of the game leaves you a little adrift--
graphically i was a bit puzzled having played the last revelation on the dreamcast console i was suprised to note that the PC version of chronicles was actually slightly lower in eye candy than the previous version--can't help wondering if Eidos might be onto a winner if they released patches for all the games right bck to TR1 that just (if there is such a word) replaced the textures used by the games with higher quality higher detailed textures--with no other changes this would truly allow for a whole new experience when replaying these games--
back to chronicles--the last section of the final level is a tadge buggy and made more difficult because of this -reccomend refering to a walk thru if for no other reason than to work round these bugs (save game problems)
other than that chronicles is classic lara and well worth the effort

This is one of the best Tomb Raider games yet. I think it is a great improvement on the fourth which was too long and drawn out with very hard puzzles. Read morePublished on 21 Jan. 2001
