It could have been better. And worse!PlayTyrant | May 10, 2015 | See all PlayTyrant's reviews »
This Tomb Raider combines novel elements like a point and click game with Tomb Raider controls, making it an unique experience in the saga. What makes this game so great is it's soundtrack, the first one in the saga recorded with live musicians. The work on the music is outstanding, even better than most nowadays games. The game itself is not that bad, it's not the better of the saga (at least for me), but it's not that bad. It does have bugs, I even encountered a GIANT Lara for no reason (LOL) but the game is enjoyable and the story is very good.

Angel of Darkness is the sixth episode in the Tomb Raider series. Lara is not dead and she's back for new adventures. This was also the first "Next gen" Tomb Raider game (It was released on the PS2). For that reason, Core Design tried to make a more innovative gameplay. Lara (And her new ally) can improve her skills and getting better and better at what she does. The story is cool and the presentation was pretty good for this period of Gaming History. Unfortunately, the game was not as polished as it should have been. The controls are clunky and there are a lot of glitches. It’s still somewhat decent and fun but it was a huge disappointment back in the day...
An unfinished modern classicSpeed4Runs | Aug. 11, 2013 | See all Speed4Runs's reviews »
TR: AoD is an AMAZING game, but it could be a real masterpiece, if it didn't get rushed up (it got released too much early and it wasn't finished). I'm amazed to see how developers kept all classic and fantastic "items" of classic Tomb Raiders and blend them with some modern gameplay. All crazy Lara's jumps and movements which made older games fun (because they were DIFFERENT from reality, instead of newer Tomb Raiders which are just too much realistic, and that's how games should be: fantastic and different from reality) got improved and they're now more realistic and natural. So, you can still do all cool huge jumps and you can still be a really strong woman, but more "naturally" and you will have to improve your strength, stamina, etc. during the game. The Angel of Darknes represents the classic Tomb Raider games in a complete version (in terms of gameplay). The bad point is that it was released too early and some cool parts were cut, so that, sometimes, you will feel just as there is something missing. The plot is amazing, deep and has some twists. Graphics are AWESOME, it's unbelievable how a 2003 game can be that good looking. Amazing reflections, DoF, good textures, effects, good shadows, and a lot of things... ... but it's also unbelievable how a 2003 game can lag on a 2010 computer. In fact, it's poorly optimized. Oh, and soundtracks are mind blowing, probably the best featured on all Tomb Raider games! Graphics + performance: 6 *Graphics: 7.75 - unbelievable *Performance: 3.75 - very bad Plot: 6 It's very good and deep. I really enjoyed it. Gameplay: 7 It's somehow innovative, because it merges classic gameplay with a modern and a more realistic one. Longevity: 5 It's long enough, but it could've been even more, if it didn't get rushed up. Sound: 7.5 AMAZING soundtracks, or better, mind-blowing! Dubbing is very good. Final score: 63 Very good game, I recommend it to anyone!
Has potential, but let down by poor qualityConorEngelb | Aug. 3, 2013 | See all ConorEngelb's reviews »
Angel of Darkness had the potential to revive the Tomb Raider series. Fresh graphics, new mechanics, a continuation of Lara's story. Sadly, it was let down by abominable controls and camera angles, which often left you in the lurch in awkward moments, and a companion who can't swim. Worth picking up for the sake of completion, but only if you're really feeling confident.

This is the last installment of the Tomb Raider chronicle before it moves on to a brand new directions of the Legend, Anniversary, and Underworld Trilogy. In this installment, the graphic change would be the first thing player will noticed of the change, it looks cleaner and crispier of all the previous installment, which it is a plus to the entry and that is the only improvement. Gameplay and style it is till the same except this time it is less dark tomb exploring and more city escaping from the police. The only point of this installment is really the storyline, everything else is better left forgotten.
