TGR: Tomb Raider Underworld: Lara's Shadow DLC Review

Downloadable add-ons for store-bought games are rarely ambitious. We see many new map or costume packs that offer a bit of variety for an older experience, but don't often get content that makes significant changes to the original game's formula. It is in this area that Lara's Shadow-the second and final expansion pack for Tomb Raider: Underworld-breaks the mold a bit. Shadow includes a number of new features not found in previous entries of the series, and even grants you special powers that change up the feel of the platforming and combat.

Tomb Raider, Tomb Raider. Well, I like the blue light in the picture. ha

I don't understand why they made you go through the same levels twice. It's DLC, they don't need to stretch it out.

Calling it 'Tomb Raider' seemed like an archaic holdover from a bygone era, considering how unimportant actual tombs were to the overall experience, but it brings up an interesting question: How much of Lara Croft's adventures actually involve tomb raiding?"

Great for fans, I love how all the Core Design stuff was shoved in a single box while the Crystal Dynamics stuff was given two separate boxes. :P

I guess it probably has something to do with the fact that every Crystal Dynamics Tomb Raider title asides from Anniversary was supposed to "reboot" the series! :O
