150768-Lara Croft Tomb Raider - The Angel of Darkness (USA)-1456651306

Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness is the sixth video game in the Tomb Raider series, acting as a direct sequel to Tomb Raider Chronicles and The Last Revelation. It was developed by Core Design and published by Eidos Interactive.

Why it Sucks

  1. Terrible and dated controls.
  2. Horrible camera.
  3. Nigh impossible jumping and platforming because of the above factors.
  4. Tedious and repetitive combat.
  5. Multiple bugs and glitches.
  6. Poor enemy AI.
  7. A strength upgrade system.
  8. Multiple stealth segments.
  9. False Advertising: The cover shows Lara holding her Duel Pistols, but in the actual game the only way to get them is either by Gameshark or a Patch if you're using the PC Version.

Redeeming qualities

  1. Very interesting and engaging plot.
  2. Amazing, smooth and detailed graphics.


The game received mixed to negative reviews from critics. At Metacritic, which assigns a normalised rating out of 100, the game received an average score of 52 and 49 for the PlayStation 2 and Windows version, respectively.

In 2010, GameTrailers placed the game 5th in their "Top 10 Worst Sequels" list.
