Emmanuel Brown managed to play Tomb Raider: Underworld and shares his initial impressions. He feels the title is impressive, and could represent one of the best of the series.

All in all though, the positive impressions of the demo far outweighed the negative, and it all adds up to a very impressive looking title that's a definite cut above the previous version. We're also happy to see that the 360 version demonstrated showed no signs of the framerate problems that plagued the release of Anniversary last year, and hopefully it'll retain the rock solid production values through to the end of development. Tomb Raider fans can breath a sigh of relief then; after a somewhat rocky beginning with Legend, it looks as if Lara will finally get an original storyline and setting that may even live up to the original premise. We can only hope.
