“3 down 2 to go”

published 10/08/2001

Profaster play than 1 and 2

Consless puzzles and more killing

Being a tomb raider fan, this is my third opinion and i will be writing one for each of the games. I was very excited about this one when it came out since i had recieved a free demo of half of level one and it looked like a good start. I liked the concept of traveling to different areas in the...

We expect a lot from Core nowadays with their Tomb Raider series, and the 3rd installment introduces some new areas to locate in Lara's mantion, as well as new vehicles and equipment. But that, plus a few extra shimmies and shakes built into Lara herself and a few more interesting weapons, is it...

I played and nearly completed Tomb Raider I played and never got near the finish of Tomb Raider 2 This is mainly because I get bored quickly with games that don't hold my interest..and watching my ex-girlfriends brother whip through both the above killed my interest in completing them myself.

Tomb Raider 3 is obviously the third game in the series featuring Lara Croft. This game came out in 1998 and the graphics are so much better than the first two. The images of Lara her self are much more rounded and pleasing to the eye and the decorations in the background of the scenes in the...

ConsNothing

Tomb Raider 3 is superb in every possible way. It has been updated a lot from the previous installments. I have have got Tomb Raider and have played the demo for the sequel and the leap is incredable. First of all Lara is looking better than ever with smoother graphics slicker animation and new...

Consfor many,,its her clothes

Eidos Interactive have done it again. Laramania hits playstation with another 2...3 bangs. Yes Tomb Raider 3 deserves just a little more attention than number 2. Lara, the curvaceous hero and so-called tomb raider now stars in her third edition with some improvements. The most significant...

ProGraphics and Playability

ConsMusic

I'm a Tomb Raider virgin. I've never played any Tomb Raiders before I tried Tomb Raider III for the Playstation. What was my verdict? Mixed. I was mightily impressed by the Graphics and the ingeniousness of the scenarios. Lara's house is a nice touch. All of the settings are well presented and...

“Not as good as I expected”

published 11/11/2000

Promore moves

Consworse than number 2

Nowhere near the class of the first and second. It doesnt flow well enough to be as absorbing as its prequels. This is by far the hardest of the four,there are too many jumps in difficulty between some sections. Although many levels have a real atmosphere, thames wharf and the nevada prison break...

“Very hard”

published 23/08/2000

ProGraphically an improvement

ConsVery, very hard

This is the without a doubt, in my opinion, the best tomb raider so far. The graphics are very good ,improving on TRII and the movement of Lara has been much improved also. The game is very hard, if you haven't played any of the Tomb Raiders before I suggest you do to get a feel for the game...

ProGraphics, weapons

ConsPLot

This is just a world class game. The graphics are super but it is all a bit too predictable, and I got bored after a couple of weeks. I find it very difficult to complete, although the levels are quite attractive. The plot is very hard to follow and I think there are too many different buttons...

Well, after receiving a new PSone for Christmas (thanks Mum!)I set about finding the ultimate games to play. The most obvious are the fighting games as they involve tactics, and, well, pressing as many buttons as you can to beat your best mate. However, these games are all well and good for the...

ProYou control Lara?

ConsPut's you to sleep

What’s so good about it? I’ll tell you, nothing, this game is so boring that I could probably use it to go to sleep. The graphics are awful, the story – there is no story. Lara may look good but that’s about it. I was so excited when I first bought it, but as soon as I put it on I realized I had...
