Storyline

Lara Croft is the daughter to a rich aristocratic English family. She is also nothing like her family, as she writes about her expeditions for rare artifacts. Natla Industries ("Creator of all things bright and beautiful," claims Natla's lackey, Larson) has hired Lara to find a rare artifact called the Scion. But what is Natla's interest with the Scion? Is Lara being used? Most importantly, what's a nice girl like Lara Croft doing in an adventure game like this? Written by Pat McCurry <ccgrad97@aol.com>

These are new weapons, new sounds and also a new Lara model/outfit. The levels were also re-arranged to make a better understanding of the story for the game. See more »

An Enduring Classic
26 February 2003 | by stekelmollSee all my reviews

The first game in the Tomb Raider series is undoubtedly the best. Although designed to run under DOS and SVGA graphics the design of the levels retains a beauty and originality rare among games. (True devotees using a PC can download a progam called GLIDOS, which allows high resolution graphics in the game, and patches to allow the game to run under XP) The soundtrack, including the trademark theme, is also wonderfully atmospheric. Lara Croft was the first third person perspective videogame character to make a mark in the gaming world. Control of the character is relatively straight forward, and the game itself quite exploration rather than action orientated. In hindsight, the puzzle standards of pulling levers or pushing moveable blocks, have become a bit tired to today's players but there's still plenty here to challenge the intellect, and more than enough action at times to quicken the pulse. Lara's first adventure sees her explore the Andes, the Classical World, Egypt and finally Atlantis. Perhaps the plot is a bit derivative from Indiana Jones (after all Indy did Atlantis in videogames three years before Lara)but hey I'd rather Lara than some old smart alec with a whip anyday...
