Tomb Raider Underworld is actually. . . . . really good

I didnt try it before because of all the hate and negativity it got...
Now I been finishing up the Tomb Raider Trilogy for PS3 and finally made it to Underworld

Its a current gen Tomb Raider with original style Lara
It really is a great game.... I dont see whats so wrong with it.

I don't remember it getting hated.
It was mostly well recieved, but unenthusiastic.

People just didn't think it was as good as the original Tomb Raider games & the gameplay still wasn't on par with modern game design.

Yeah it was sad seeing the amount of negativity it got.

Definitely a solid adventure, and those open water segments are really good

Good game.

Completely agreed.

I don't remember it being hated as such as being generally ignored.

I liked it and it rated as the best for me since TR4 although I admit I never played Anniversary. How does Anniversary compare to Underworld?

It was fun, but it was very rushed: Short, Glitchy, only came out a year after the last game...I would have been furious if I'd paid full price for it.

That said, at least it actually had puzzles and platforming and wasn't turned into another action game...

We must not confuse dissent with disloyalty. Dissent is the highest form of patriotism.

Anniversary has more puzzles and harder puzzles.
Besides that, Underworld has better graphics

Lara's ass looks better in Underworld tho
