SAN FRANCISCO (08/29/2000) - Just when you think you've seen the last of her swinging ponytail and improbable chest, Lara Croft is back with another adventure. Thankfully, balanced game play and a focus on problem solving make Lara's latest Tomb Raider escapade, The Last Revelation, one of her most satisfying.
While plundering an Egyptian tomb, Lara accidentally brings a long-dead king back to life. To put things right, Lara must dash about some beautifully rendered locations in the Middle East, collecting artifacts and dispatching evildoers. Unlike the last couple of Tomb Raider sequels, The Last Revelation is largely puzzle oriented, demanding that you stop and think rather than execute split-second keyboard commands.
PROS:Focuses on puzzles instead of precision.
CONS:Enough with the gargantuan breasts already.
List Price: US$40
COMPANY:512/708-8100, Aspyr Media Inc.
Advice: In a game that could have been just more of the same, Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation is a worthy sequel in an already formidable franchise.
