Well it's a very good game but it's hard to say its the best. I think Underworld is the best. I mean how to do you one up Thor's hammer?
Right that Tomb Raider Underworld is the game where Crystal Dynamics did everything right? Levels were big, the puzzles were hard, the story tied Legend and Anniversary together, and the platforming was perfect. ------As for this Tomb Raider XIII, it was an awesome game and Crystal Dynamics tried really hard to make it more in the spirit of Tomb Raider than the Legend trilogy. They succeeded in the aspect of the overall adventure but they were too scared to go the extra mile so they decided to meet the fans halfway. We still have tombs and puzzles but they're optional and easy, the gunfights have greatly improved though so you'll have alot of fun. The game did however borrow a few Uncharted ideas in a disappointing way but it was nothing that kills the experience. Stay away from the terrible multiplayer and the lazy costumes buys and you'll love this game too. It's not the best Tomb Raider but it's an intriguing take on the series nonetheless.
