From the moment you pick this book up you just know you are in for a treat, and it does not disappoint! The fun starts right from the front cover all the way to the back cover.....Lara is everywhere in full illustrated colour.
Her gaming history lusciously unfolds in every page and her future is not forgotten either in a glimpse of the new state-of-the-art Lara from the New Generation of Tomb Raider games soon to be with us. Everything you would expect to read and see from this 'first' dedicated animated Lara Croft hardback game book 'is served' - as Winston would quite rightly say! Bio-Files, Adventure Archives, Features, Screenshots, Chronicles Diary, Puzzles/Teasers, Weapons Log and LOTS LOTS more... I don't need to waste your time on a lengthy review - you just need to buy this book!
Is there anything bad about it? Well, if you expect to see a book full of brand new Tomb Raider artwork then you may be disappointed. It is simply a pictorial history of Lara and her game adventures right through from TR1 to TR6. Having said that, the pictures and screenshots are perfect for bringing back those moments you most remember whilst playing Lara. Stunning illustrations and write-ups on environments, an opportunity to remember all those baddies, feast your eyes on those hard-earned artefacts, or take a look at Lara's essential wardrobe!
This book is a fitting tribute to Lara Croft and all the Tomb Raider games to date.Read more ›
Each game is "treated" to a brief description and a few screenshots of one of its levels with some rather weak descriptions and poor pictures of the "baddies", weapons and outfits. Bizarrely, there are puzzle pages, as per a kid's Christmas annual.
I can't see this book appealling to old or young TR fans - stick to the individual guides for each game. They are written and illustrated with much more care and thought and are not just game walkthroughs.
