Since her last appearance, the character who launched a thousand computer-magazine covers has, of course, added to her already impressive array of skills. Lara can now jump walls, duck, crawl and rope- swing through the 15 levels. There are also the usual technical improvements, with the game now running in high-res mode, making the graphics a lot smoother and more detailed. However, the general philosophy seems to have been not to change a winning formula, and fans can look forward a mixture of the cerebral challenges of the first Tomb Raider game and the more combat-based action of its sequel.
