Horrible

Tomb Raider: Underworld

This is not a very good game in any sense. There are too many puzzles and not enough shooting. The graphics were terrible and the story line has much to be desired. The only good part i have to say about this game is that at times it was really short so you could go through it easily. If you would like to play the game then go for it, I hope you enjoy it more than I did.

This should never have been released.

It was utterly unfinished! The company obviously concentrated on the "next-gen" systems, and this poor game was left by the wayside.
The Good:
-A completion (of sorts) of the story arc began in TR: Legend.
-Cool legendary weapon.
-Hints at something greater.
-Recurring villain.
The Bad:
-Entire LEVELS were left out!
-What happened to the polish of Legend? The menu system was painful, and the "secrets" were in plain sight!
-Miles of empty corridor-running. Very boring.
-Unnecessary motorcycle sections, based off bad level design.
-Due to the excision of entire LEVELS, the transitions within the game were extremely harsh and confusing.
-Exactly TWO instances of "bullet-time" type of situations. That's all.
-No reason to collect "secrets."
The Ugly:
-Carp-TACULAR (sic) graphics! HOW do you DEGRADE over the course of sequels???
-Bizarre neutral poses.
-"Vanishing" enemies.
-Spider-Man 3-esque "team up." Stupid, stupid, stupid.
-Jarring transitions. "Oh, look, a door underwater! I'M ON A BOAT NOW!"

Skip this one entirely. Read a tabloid. Heck, read the toilet-paper bag... and wipe with this disc.

Really Bad

Since this game was released on ps2 after its original debut on ps3, pc, 360, and wii, its optimization had to have been altered in the recreation process. I couldn't even get through the first five minutes of the game because the frame rate drop was terrible! By not even engaging in combat, which has a better chance of buckling frame rate, I was barely moving just to jump onto a ledge. Right before I played I was playing resident evil 4 on ps2 and it worked amazing so I assumed it was the game. Going to try on 360, ps2 version.....awful
