About Tomb Raider: Underworld

About this game

Tomb Raider: Underworld is an exploration-based game from Crystal Dynamics that allows players to step into the shoes of the fearless adventurer, Lara Croft.

Exotic Surroundings 

The game is set in multiple exotic locations around the globe, each meticulously designed with impressive high-definition visuals that contribute to the creation of a truly believable world. It offers a new level of challenge and choice to players, with the environment playing a pivotal role in the gameplay. 

Challenges and Combat 

Players are presented with intricate, multi-stage puzzles within each level, each masked within an interactive environmental playground that provides more flexibility in problem-solving. Moreover, the game introduces a new range of combat options, including a dual-target system and the ability to shoot while suspended. These features allow players to decide whether to pacify or kill their enemies, adding another layer to the gameplay. 

State-of-the-art Gear 

In Tomb Raider: Underworld, Lara Croft is equipped with the latest technology, enhancing her ability to navigate through the different environments. Notable items include an Active Sonar map, a revolutionary tool that uses sonar pings to create a 3D image of Lara's surroundings, and a multi-purpose grapple designed for climbing and manipulating objects. The game also introduces an all-terrain hybrid motorbike designed to handle a range of challenging conditions.
