Title pretty much sums it all up. Released in 2008, Underworld is the last TR game that is true to the series' roots. Lots of exploration, puzzles, combat typical to Tomb Raider series. Climbing, jumping, game is filled with platforming elemets. Apart from being so old school, it has very good graphics, for it's time of course. There are also numerous improvements to the well know(and a bit stale)gameplay, of which you can read in the game's description. I picked this game up here on GMG, because I needed to have it on Steam, as a double. It is, by far, one of the best titles in the TR franchise. And I'm with TR series since late 90's, so I know my Tomb Raider games.
Epic, in the good wayPlayTyrant | May 8, 2015 | See all PlayTyrant's reviews »
The last Tomb Raider that was loyal to its roots, with a dark and epic background story. The graphics are awesome for the time this game came out, the lightning is great and there's a lot of animations for Lara (you won't believe when you see her climbing walls and moving on obstacles, reacting to her surroundings...). The fighting system is good, just like the previous game, it's truly a great game I've finished like... 5 times or so in 2 years. Probably my favorite TR game, together with Legend and Anniversary.

My dad and I used to play through the Tomb Raider games when I was younger, and he would show me all the tips and secrets to the game. This was the first one that I actually played by myself (mostly because he got really busy with work) but I really enjoyed it! Lara Croft is a great video game character, and this game has its own unique feeling to it, and it's a game in which you can play all the way through without having the storyline feeling like it's lacking, just because it's such a great game! All the characters seem to have great voices, and the graphics (still today) are great, along with the nice smooth gameplay. Honestly, I recommend this game to ANYBODY who's either played a previous Tomb Raider game, to people who HAVEN'T play a Tomb Raider game, or to people new to gaming, because this game is a great one! The Puzzles are awesome, and it's not so much shooting and killing as it is really thinking through different scenarios of the game. Truly an awesome game.
As good as it getsrjb789 | Sept. 24, 2013 | See all rjb789's reviews »
This is the pinnacle of the Tomb Raider franchise and it shows. The graphics are stunning, the controls are cleverly implemented and this is helped by stellar game play and the story really shines. Also the various puzzles you will encounter throughout the games are fun and involving and span across a very long campaign where, in true tomb raider style, you will visit many locations across the globe and explore the varied locations. The sense of adventure is still there and it runs through the entire game, I was not bored at all when playing through the game and I never felt like I was doing boring tasks. All in all Tomb Raider Underworld is the best Tomb Raider game ever made! Go get this game!

After purchasing the newest Tomb Raider game, I often like to reminisce and come back to a classic - this game. This is the most modern in the original Lara Croft series and so has a nice era and feel to it, especially when you want to take a break from Lara's roots in the newest game. The movement and jumping animations are truly astounding and the story itself is great - very "Nordic" themed, which suits Lara well! If this had multi-player, then it would be absolutely amazing.
