Storyline

Lara Croft is the daughter to a rich aristocratic English family. She is also nothing like her family, as she writes about her expeditions for rare artifacts. Natla Industries ("Creator of all things bright and beautiful," claims Natla's lackey, Larson) has hired Lara to find a rare artifact called the Scion. But what is Natla's interest with the Scion? Is Lara being used? Most importantly, what's a nice girl like Lara Croft doing in an adventure game like this? Written by Pat McCurry <ccgrad97@aol.com>

The first and still one of the best of the series...
11 July 2007 | by See all my reviews

It is probably because you only do what the title of the game suggests, tomb raiding that still makes this game of the series one of the best. Later you would do missions not involving tombs...where you would raid military bases and buildings. However, Laura Croft always seems most at home in an underground temple searching for treasure and clues to disable deadly traps and unlock doors. Which is basically all you do here. Laura is hired to find pieces of a device by a mysterious woman and she goes to different tombs in order to find them. There are usually some animals to kill and even a T-rex to fight. For the most part you are not killing people in this particular adventure. Though there are a couple of people in this one to fight. The ending is a bit over the top, however, this does not detract from the overall fun to be had in this game. The physics and controls are rather easy to get used to, and no need to worry about ammo as your default weapons never run out. You can also pick up a different weapon here and there including a sweet pair of uzi's. So if going into mysterious tombs is your thing, this tomb raider adventure is still tops.
