Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness
With as much build up as this game had, you would think it would turn out to be better than the 1 star I'm giving it. No, it really is that bad. I decided to go with the PS2 version of this game, even though historically I have played Tomb Raider on the PC. My rationalle was that it was more of a console game. That thinking is correct I'm sure. The PC game is most likely not any better than this turd.
The problems lie in that it had potential. But like many 3rd person games, the camera is a nightmare. The new control scheme really hinders the game. The new plot is just plain boring. There was supposed to be motivation with Lara being a wanted woman for murder.
On the bright side, this game did not kill the series off. Lara as a franchise has better games in its future I'm sure.
