Critic Reviews

82

Game Informer

90 / 100
"The level design is as epic as ever, with puzzles spanning entire vistas littered with tunnels, tombs, torturous traps, and more."

GameWatcher

90 / 100
"Cooperative play done right!"

Edge Magazine

60 / 100
"As the more intimate title suggests, this may be as much about Croft's brand awareness in the face of unprecedented (and Uncharted) competition. [Oct 2010, p.96]"
