Had no weapon or ammo pick-ups at all.

Falling damage being an inconsistent mess.

No Croft Manor to explore and have fun in like in TRL and TRA.

If you have anything more to add, feel free to do it.

Underworld is just the worst TR ever. It sucks in almost EVERY point (except for the graphics, which was gorgeus for its time).

And do we wanna talk about when one of Crystal Dynamics' developers said "Angel of Darkness was a study in what no to do"? Well, I wouod like to say to this deveoper that their Underworld game sucked. It sucks way more than AoD.

This is the Underworld HATE thread.

Damn. I cannot refute this. Underworld is just brutal to play through and honestly I may skip Legends and Anniversary. Completed reboot trilogy and playing all the classics.

I have a love/hate relationship with it.

Thailand is one of my favorite Tomb Raider levels and the soundtrack is beautiful at times. But the story is weak and kinda wrecked what Legend started. I won't even mention the animations.
I also hated that we got every weapon at the start of the game and never got to collect anything aside from the many many secrets and a few health pickups.

Just this. I won't say anything else.

Not just that in my opinion: it also has good music, a good motorcycle, and Keeley Hawes.

But out of all it's flaws the only one that really bothers me is the lackluster story and all the retconning it does from Legend. Because in that way it damages Legend as well.

I loved the Mexican bits because they were beautiful and atmospheric.

Thailand was pretty too. The lizards in this bit were quite scary first time through too.

However a lot of the gameplay was souless. It felt empty and disappointing running into all those grey corridors and I couldn't take the eitr beings seriously. The viking hats ones looked silly to me, and the concept of blue glowy liquid doing all this "magic" didn't work for me.

The very premise of this thread is killin me but the posts are even better :vlol:

"Disgusting in-game animations" and "Why Lara has those big hands and long leggs??" are the best things I've read all week bahahahah

How about the long ass hallways with zero gameplay comprising 75% of the last level. Or the fact that the only difficulty comes from fighting with a camera that is janky as hell.

Ikr? Ew.. Maybe they wanted her to have more realistic proportions, but since her head is so big.. they had to increase the size of her hands.

The graphics still look gorgeous though..
I feel like CD just did not care that much about the game. My guess is that they had some internal issues, because they certainly have the talent *cough* Eric Lindstrom *cough*.

Yeah, despite the beautiful graphics, larger spaces and some of the interactive folliage, the game felt.. Empty..
