Bad

Frustrating gameplay - Decent story

Game play is pretty frustrating. Spend most of the time in the game not solving the puzzles or anything, but just figuring out how to get from one ledge to the next, or swinging from this one thing to another thing etc. The awkward camera angles didn't help either. The story is okay. It was the only reason I soldiered through the game (in hindsight I'm not sure it was worth it). Definitely not on the same level as the Uncharted games

more frustrating than fun

The game was more frustrating than fun for me. The jumping from point to point was very flawed. Some jumps you can look at and think there is no way possible that I can make that jump, but you try it any ways. And there you are on the ledge you were jumping for. And a minute later your character wont jump straight up to grab a ledge 2 feet above her head. And there is so many "stuck" points in random locations threw out the game, where you cant move from the spot your on unless you stop pushing on the joy stick then jump out from that spot.

I realize the game was always more about the view and not the game play but a big lack of attention to game mechanics is just plain pathetic.

Good

Great game, but needs more action

I rate this game a 7 out of 10.

I have been a tomb raider fan from the first PC game in 96. Nothing beets a good action adventure puzzle game.
Great game with amazing scenery and backgrounds.
The game however lacks enemies, and has NO BOSSES!!!!
The game is full of errors; like weird falls, shooting glitches, non challenging enemies & 'IFFY' Lara directional control.
The game has only a few levels, but does not mean it is not fun.
They definitely stepped it up on the puzzles in this game.
The fun climbs and confusing puzzles keep you guessing for days.
Excellent game, but needed another year before release to smooth out the graphical bugs, and add some decent enemies.
