This game could have been good but at this point, ideas were just being thrown everywhere with no thought. How about we have a level where Lara dives deep under the ocean to get a mythical spear? Now, where would we logically set this, hmm? How about THE HARSH, COLD, WINTER REGIONS OF RUSSIA? How would Lara stay in the water? HOW ABOUT IN AN IDIOTIC FUTURISTIC METAL DIVING SUIT? The opposite sort of thinking is also present. Now, what would be a cool level in an island off the coast of northern Ireland? Entering a crypt? Spooky woods? How about dicking around in a bog with no weapons for a few hours? Oh well, at least you, 14 year old Lara, get to see the Grim Reaper, literal hell, and undead. Retroactively giving Lara PTSD, leading to her killing countless people and animals in past instalments.
Overall, this game does have some cool levels but Ireland and Russia are, for the most part- absolutely horrid. They are the 2nd and 3rd set of levels respectively, too, so you are immediately left with these sour, irritating levels. The later infiltration levels, though, along with some of the early Rome levels, are absolutely sick though.
