Tomb Raider 1 was a huge success and I loved the game. Tomb Raider 2 is an even better version of the first core gameplay ideas. Running, jumping, shooting and many other gameplay ideas have been improved vastly and it creates a more complete experience. The tombs you have to raid are much more expansive than in the first game and this gives a sense of space that fleshes out the raiding of the tombs and makes it more interesting. All in all the second version of the Tomb Raider is a sequel that improves on everything the first game did right.

Building on the success of the original, Tomb Raider II adds some additional features to the general gameplay, including more weapons and new moves. The sequel introduces many more human enemies when compared to the original game, which sometimes feels odd when you think about it too deeply (is Lara an archaeologist or a mass murderer?).
The puzzle-solving and jumping from the first game are all back from the original, only bigger and better. The range of environments is also wider, when compared to the first game and includes tombs, a Tibetan monastery, an opera houses and the canals of Venice.
The graphics were tweaked slightly from the original and have therefore dated somewhat (hmmm pixels). The game itself is not necessarily better than the first, it is however a solid game and certainly remains a classic for most Tomb Raider fans.

Tomb Raider II brings out all awesomeness of Tomb Raider (I) and improves them all, making an amazing and hard game. This is probably the hardest Tomb Raider, and it's just very fun. You will have tons of weapons, including all those which were featured in the first game, you will have some innovations such as flares and new costumes, areas and traps. Sounds are classic, and graphics are very good.
Graphics + performance: 6.75
*Graphics: 6.5 - Amazingly good, they feature good polygons and effects. Texutres aren't the best.
*Performance: 7 - This game will be playable (stable and locked 30FPS) on most computers (even old ones).
It's very good and it contains some twists. A pure fantastic plot which will make you want to know how will it "end"
Amazing. It's just almost perfect. There are only some missing movements (which got added on TR3 & TR4), but it's near perfection. Very funny and competitive!
This game features MANY missions which are VERY long! It just lasts very much!
Dubbing is amazing and soundtracks are unforgettable. I love it!
Final score: 70
AWESOME GAME! I recommend it to anyone!

The sequel to the first Tomb Raider, this entry in the franchise was just as enjoyable as its predecessor. Defined by its long lasting levels and brilliant adventure gameplay, this Tomb Raider game is a true classic.

What nostalgia! Let's face it, Lara Croft is an animal-hating, wealthy English treasure hunter who "acquires" artifacts for no reason other than hoarding them. As Indiana Jones' battlecry was always "That belongs in a museum!" Lara's battlecry must be "That belongs in my curio cabinet!" And for all the actual archaeological emphasis in the game series (i.e. none), Lara might just as well be running all over the world searching for distinctive Hummel figurines. However, in terms of gaming, Lara is the Harriet Tubman of 3D adventurers, the Albert Schweitzer of the polygonal world. Aside from a criminal sense of fashion and a bad head-to-body ratio, her worst sin has been appearing in a series of lackluster games.
