The making of Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness

Core Design's next-generation Lara adventure was going to be the most dynamic, daring and darkest to date. It's got the dark bit right..

Someone please give this games controls and graphics and update. This game has not been next generation since the first one and those of us who first played it on the first Playstation know it was a good game but it was just that. Never got over the hump or onboard in regards to gameplay or graphics. Besides most or I for that matter have move on to multiplayer/online games or just better games over all. I don't expect this game to sell out. That's just my opinion though.
