The new game reveals the most exotic and spectacular tombs to be raided yet. At times, the effects on offer seem almost cinematic and the virtual sets put recent Hollywood blockbuster films to shame. The gameplay prioritises exploration and puzzle-solving over the big action moments favoured by so many rival titles."
