I'm replaying Underworld after years of not touching it...

Whoa. Crystal were at their peak! The Mediterranean Sea (including Amanda's -first- ship) and Thailand are EXCELLENT TR levels I though combat was worse than it actually is, so I'm happy to discover a lot of my memories were not accurate at all.

Now it's Croft Manor's turn

In the Spanish forum I'm usually dwelling in just published an article asking what we want for the next TR.

70 posts so far and literally everyone wants more puzzles, exploration, better gunplay and better characters and villains (including Lara).

@Lara_Fan and LateRaider: We'll see

To be honest, the worst part of Underworld is its collectathon nature. The Med Sea has 26 treasures and Thailand has 30. Out of the two, the worst offender is the Med Sea because of its "vast" underwater exterior. You never know if you are missing one of the many treasures!

Unless you follow a guide to find them...which is what I'm doing. I absolutely HATE going back to Underworld's levels with the ridiculous Treasure Hunt mode, so I prefer to do it this way.

I know I'll suffer this in Mexico and Jan Mayen Island too. The bike = large spaces to cover with vases placed everywhere (?)

But I'm enjoying the graphics, level design, enemies, story events, characters, puzzles, and new moves. And who here doesn't like wielding Thor's Gauntlet to push giant bridges around!?

Yeah and the awards are so underwhelming I simply never bother picking them up.

It's a big downgrade from Legend/Anniversary, I'm pretty sure they only did that to desperately pad out time to compensate for the troubled development.

Downgrade in the secret and rewards department? Absolutely! Regarding everything else? Helheim no!

Just finished. It's CD's best TR game. I wish it was longer. I didn't feel the "downhill" I was warned the game would suffer. I even enjoyed the visit to the Tisiphone, thinking of it as an opportunity to make short of Amanda's mercenaries with Mj÷lnir

It has some brilliant platforming, and I honestly didn't have -major- camera issues. Yes, the game lacks polishing, but it's one of Lara's most original adventures. So much so that they'd make great Top Cow comic books.

I'd rank CD's games like this, from my most favourite to my least favourite:
- Underworld
- TR2013
- Anniversary
- Legend
- Rise
