I do like this game but I do wish it had been more light hearted like Legend and Anniversary story wise. I know a lot of people didn't like James Bond style Lara but Underworld felt kind of empty at times.

TRU is actually sooooo underrated. Natla's comeback and the new doppelganger slayed my existence (gameplay is terrible, but anyways) it's actually sad that they rebooted the saga after this game... tragic

TRU was one of my very first games and i absolutely adore it, my only nitpicks are the godamn exclusive dlcs and the sometimes glitchy camera, other than that everything is 10/10. The closest thing Crystal ever did to a real TR game, it's sad that when you look at it, the game is clearly unfinished.

I think Underworld for the most part was a great game! Whilst it did have some extremely underwhelming moments (The first Ocean level was far too linear, even for an opening level), I thought it played much more like the traditional games than Legend.

I think the Mediterranean Sea section was very well designed, being the first level of the game.... although it was mostly linear, you could freely explore the sea bottom to find treasures, and, also, the part with the Kraken was non-linear, since you could progress with more than one ways

It had a lot of potential to be great, but I think there are too many drawbacks to say that its one of the better TR games. It's too short for one, glitchy controls/camera, no boss battles, enemy repetition, unsatisfying level design (with some obvious exceptions).

But what it does do right, it gets very right .

They really should have released all the dlc on pc as well. **** that Eric Lindstrom guy.
The game still holds up in terms of graphics. It's looks amazing for a game released in 2008.

It really does. Honestly, I still LOVE all the character models. Lara, especially. She always looked A LOT like classic Lara to me.

I like TRU but not as much as I used to. It's fun for the most part, but it feels very rushed.
