According to Egyptian legend, Horus, son of the light, outwitted the evil God Set and imprisoned him in a secret tomb. Five thousand years later, Lara Croft discovers the lost tomb and unwittingly unleashes the evil God Set, fulfilling the ancient prophecy of his return to plunge mankind into darkness! In a race against time, Lara must use all her wit and skill to re-imprison Set and save the world from Armageddon. Pursued at every turn by her arch-rival, the unscrupulous archaeologist Werner Von Croy, Lara embarks on a journey of discovery across Egypt, where she must overcome the most ingenious puzzles and infernal traps ever devised, and face terrifying evil from beyond the grave... With more twists and turns than an Egyptian labyrinth, this is heart stopping action-adventure; a Tomb Raider that truly offers... The Last Revelation.
Probably the best Tomb Raiderrjb789 | Sept. 24, 2013 | See all rjb789's reviews »
Everything in this game is at the best it could be. The graphics were very good for their time, the gameplay is very good and continues the same Tomb Raider formula which makes you want to explore the bigger and bigger caves you will come across in the game and the increased graphics really help to make you feel immersed in the world of Lara Croft and her tomb raider activities. The game is the probably the best Tomb Raider game in the whole franchise and it continues to impress me even to this day. In short if you like the older Tomb Raider games go get this!

Unlike Tomb Raider III, which felt like a somewhat underdone clone of its predecessors, The Last Revelation manages to provide the series with some degree of fresh air. While much of the formula remains the same, enough changes were made to the inventory and weapons to make it feel new, and more exciting.
Same formula as its predecessorslok0812 | July 26, 2013 | See all lok0812's reviews »
The 4th installment still keeps its basic formula of exploring tombs in different place in the world while transverse through obstacles and traps that will kill you as well as monsters and wildlifes that serves as obstacles on your adventures. It also maintain the puzzle aspect from the 3rd in a bigger and better scale. Sadly, nothing else new was introduced in this installment so therefore it really felt like a rehash of the previous game rather than a new game with new directions. Even though nothing new is introduced, the storyline still continues and that alone make it worth while to be a great entry in the franchise.
The best TR of the sagaabelfs | Feb. 19, 2013 | See all abelfs's reviews »
This game is not a Tomb Raider, it IS Tomb Raider. It pick all the elements that made the first Tomb Raider famous 1996, but with improvements. TR IV is settled mainly in Egypt, and the sense of wonder from level to level is astounding. Puzzles must be solved in a different way (even with action integrated), and there some memorables like "dice game". There are not "traditional" boss fights, but you will use your guns a lot. What about the story?? Just amazing and epic as the perfect Tomb Raider should be. Buy it without hesitating.
The last good Tomb RaiderCavalieroscuro | Feb. 19, 2013 | See all Cavalieroscuro's reviews »
This is the last good Tomb Raider, with a nice story, a twisting ending and a very good gameplay. This chapter focus on the past of Lara Croft and her mentor, with a gameplay very similar to the first Tomb Raider. This is maybe one of the best TR title.
