With the success of the series dying off a bit, Core
and Eidos has to pull of something pretty impressive to get the
attention back onto Ms Croft once again. Tomb Raider the Last
Revelation along the with the adverts she appeared in (Dreamcast
and Lucozade) has revived Lara for a new outing to a more desired
location than Tomb Raider 2 and 3's attempts.
For all the people who have missed out on the series, we follow
the story (in third person) of a high class explorer named Lara
Croft who searches for rare and exquisit items and collectables
to house at her mansion in the country. Lara ends up encountering
Demons, Monsters and even Alien on her 'exageratted' adventures.
Never the less the series has made a massive impact on how we
look at third person perspective games.
The Last Revelation boosts a wide range of larger
and more well designed levels to compete with, and doesnt require
the un-neccessary and degrading task of level jumping to solve
a a puzzle. TLR's puzzles are generraly contained to the surrounding
area and not sprawled throughtout the game thankfully.
The graphics in this game have been re-worked with
the likes off Lara now being fully skinned to avoid texture cracking
and difficulities on the games behalf. However the always inevitable
'Wall Strectching and Spliting' has still made a return but has
improved with only some of the walls carrying this burdon. The
sound unfortunately has not been altered much at all. However
it still retains all of its eerie moans and athmospheric musical
Laras new adventure first starts as almost a prequel
to the very first game in which we see Lara aged 16. How as the
game progresses the game turns into a sequel to the third. This
is a nice idea by Core, and they managed to pull it off very well.
