I think somebody once described this game as close as you can get to tomb raider on a ds. Correct!
It is an excellently crafted game with clear graphics and easy to use controls. I play it on a touch screen samsung marvel. Movement of lara is controlled by an arrow keypad and more complex functions (climbing, arming and disarming a weapon and firing) needs the use of a numeric pad. Both keypads are small,. Although large enough to be easy to use with fingers, easy to see, and leave ample room for a large and clear game display. Switching between the 2 keypads is easy and soon becomes a natural part of the game-play.
The game is remarkably complex with puzzles as well as the usual enemies to negotiate. And it has a maze like quality as it is necessary to remember ones way around numerous screens in a level to complete it.
As the game progresses a variety of sub-games are unlocked which provide further enjoyment.
Absolutely the best tomb raider game to hit the mobile screen!!!
Having been a big fan of tomb raider in all its versions (er actually maybe not the film...) I was keen to see how this version shaped up and I wasn't disappointed. Suitabley difficult and maddening in places (especially climbing seemingly endless walls), it is great fun. There are a couple of sub games which broke up the normality of running, jumping and twirling around bars like an olympian. The bosses were also fairly difficult in places which added to the fun. The puzzles were enjoyable and re-playable on their own seperately when you've completed them which adds great value for money. Really good, well designed and rendered game and can't wait for more 3d from electronic arts and couldn't recommend it highly enough,.
Good for the money - graphics above average but a bit repetitive. :-) I could do with smaller fingers when trying some of the moves that require quick responses between key choices on the keypad (climbing some walls and avoiding rock falls etc) of my n95 8gb - that's not so much the fault of the game, just my fingers!
Nice game - much better than the tr anniversary offering! Worth a few quid!
