As a teen, Lara Croft discovers her true roots as an adventurer in Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation for the PlayStation, the fourth installment of the Tomb Raider 3D action-adventure franchise. She's lived a life surrounded by servants, social events and high society. One day she discovers Professor Werner Von Croy, a respected archaeologist whose work would soon take Lara on a tour of Cambodia. There she would learn, study, and be inspired by this search for adventure from around the world, only to end up witnessing Von Croy's entrapment in a cave now buried in the desert's sandy blanket.
Lara Croft is now grown up and in search of this secret tomb that compels her to travel to modern Egypt. As Lara, you'll experience new enemies, infernal devices and puzzles, and new weapons and ammo. The evil god Set is about to unleash his plague unto the earth due to Von Croy's eagerness for removing the ancient amulet where he is now trapped... and who knows what else might happen!
The game features a new graphics engine with true, real time dynamic lighting, smoother frame rate, and more color and animation not seen in previous Tomb Raider titles. Weapons and tools like the revolver, crossbow, binoculars, and various types of ammo will help you in your thirst for adventure in these huge, cavernous levels. The ammunition for some weapons allow you to switch between multiple types of rounds.
New moves based on a real physics engine is included, like swinging from ropes, lighting torches, and kicking down doors. There's also a revised inventory system allowing you to combine objects in a similar fashion to the Resident Evil series. And you'll be assisting your "partners" such as the Egyptian tour guide who lights torches for you. He'll need to get through some gates in order to pinpoint certain criteria that needs attention, like a switch or secret door.
Finally, your enemies are smarter this time around with the improved AI system. They can duck, mimic, counter and dodge Lara's moves. Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation is what raiding tombs is all about, but do you have what it takes to pull it off? ~ Cal Nguyen, All Game Guide
