Tomb Raider 5 (Chronicles)
"This is the fifth 'Tomb Raider' title to appear on PSone and once again sticks rigidly to the action/adventure style of play that has proved popular for almost half a decade. Players can once more take full control of the versatile Miss Croft as she can run, jump, swim, roll, crawl, vault, climb, duck, grab, monkey swing and shoot her way through vast 3D levels against a multitude of enemies."

Kris J Mahar  "Chronicles Was One Of The Best Out Of The Series. It Offered Insight Into Past Expoits As Well As Combined Lara's Moves And Attitudes. Much Better To Play Than The Tomb Raider Three Or Four. Much More Chance For Exploring And Trying Different Techniques. I Would Give The Game A Aa"

(digger)  "Not A Bad Finish To The Tomb Raider Series On The Old Grey Box. Had A Real "been There, Done That" Feeling About It. Not Overly Inspiring Stuff.

Can't Help Feeling That The Graphics Could Have Been Better Given The Quality Of Soul Reaver A Couple Of Years Earlier.

If Your A Tomb Raider Fan Like I Am, Buy It Anyway To Complete Your Collection. Just Beware Though, You Might Not Be Replaying It As Many Times As The Rest Of The Series."

David H. Hollister  "This Game Is Much Like The Rest Of The Tomb
Raider Series With The Exception That There Are
4 Different Scenarios, Each Unrelated To The
Other. This Gives The Satisfaction Of
Completing A Given Mission Without Yanking
Out All Your Hair. The Missions Are Easier Than
The Previous Games Offered. All In All, If You
Are A Tomb Raider Fan Then Buy It And Enjoy."
