  • After the success that followed Tomb Raider, everyone knew they would be seeing Ms. Laura

  • Croft again. Well, a year later Laura was back and better than ever, with a new treasure

  • to find and enemies to shoot in the creatively titled, Tomb Raider 2.

  • The story focuses on the Dagger of Xian, a legendary weapon that has the ability to turn

  • a person into a dragon. And of course, like all mystical powerful weapons, someone is

  • out to get it and use it for bad reasons. So Laura is out to find the dagger and save

  • the world. The game’s story is interesting and does a decent job keeping your attention,

  • although it is predictable and forgettable. It will take you all around the world, starting

  • with the Great Wall of China and eventually to Venice, and Tibet.

  • All of the levels look great with the much improved graphics. For the Playstation, these

  • were some impressive looking textures, and the character models are improved. Laura still

  • has a bad case of shovel face, and her body is still that of a fantasy. A very polygonal

  • fantasy.The levels are even bigger than in the first game and make good use of the games

  • lighting effects. But with these larger levels comes some harder puzzles. The puzzles in

  • them much more difficult. Expect to get lost often while you backtrack looking for a switch

  • you missed.

  • The gameplay is still the same from the first game, which is not a bad thing. You will do

  • your jumping, climbing, and shooting as you hunt for treasures in order to advance to

  • the next level. Laura still has her now famous handguns, which will be your go to but the

  • game also has some new weapons such as a M16 and one of my personal favorite weapons, a

  • harpoon gun. The combat is much more prevalent than the first game, having Laura thin down

  • the populations of both endangered species and man.

  • The platforming is just a sensitive as before, relying a lot of blind jumps. Thankfully you

  • can save from anywhere. There are also some vehicle section, such as driving a boat through

  • Venice, that mix up the action. And there are still those annoying swimming levels,

  • which are still just as frustrating.

  • And while all this sounds great, there is something about that game that doesn’t wow

  • like the original. The first game was a huge shakeup for gaming, and this one just follows

  • behind. It doesn’t really take any risk, and is mostly more of the same. While this

  • isn’t that big of a problem for the sequel, it was a sign of things to come for the series.
