Reviews:

Computer Shopper, May 1998

"Tomb Raider II is the obligatory sequel to Eidos Interactive's awesome original Tomb Raider, featuring Lara Croft, the most famous digital personality since Max Headroom. She's smart, sexy, rich, and has a British accent to die for. But alas, she's computer generated...and of course, she packs an Uzi.

"For the unfortunate few who aren't familiar with Tomb Raider, suffice it to say that it was one of last year's best action/adventure games. For those already acquainted with the game, the sequel remains unchanged as far as game play is concerned, but has even more beautiful 3-D locations to explore, more ways to get around, more enemies, and more weapons. You will, however, need a Direct3D-compliant graphics accelerator in the sights.

"In TRII, Lara seeks the Dagger of Xian, an ancient Chinese artifact. Her quest takes her to such varied locations as the Great Wall of China, ice-covered Tibet, the waterways of Venice, and a sunken ocean liner. The 3-D rendered scenery is even more amazingly detailed than in the original, and you can move around freely. However, getting about is still often a matter of flipping secret levers to open faraway doors, which is natural for an adventurer in a subterranean ruin, but a little odd in Venice.

"Tomb Raider II has the immediacy of the first-person Quake genre, but the perspective is from a floating camera that follows Lara as the player guides her, similar to the game play in the classic Alone in the Dark.

"Although there's plenty of violence, the emphasis is on finding artifacts, keys, and secret ways to open doors. However, if Lara is faced with an attacking Doberman, a thug with a bat, or a great white shark, she won't hesitate to use her arsenal, which now includes an M-16, an Uzi, and a harpoon gun. As in the original, Lara can swim underwater, but now she can also hop into a speedboat or onto a motorcycle or a snowmobile. Because there's more fast-paced action in this sequel, the controls seem more awkward than they did in the original, especially when there are multiple bad guys.

"Tomb Raider II is a fun, light-hearted game, with great graphics and smooth game play. Even gamers who don't own any other action/adventure games will enjoy TRII. If you liked the first Tomb Raider enough to finish it, then break out the heavy artillery and get ready for an action-packed second date with Ms. Croft."
