Tomb Raider: Underworld Preview, it’s only 30 days until the released date (21 November 2008).  Eidos is giving another hint on its latest series of Tomb Raider and  show some glimpses of what Lara Croft will shoot, swim and climb  her way through. Every couple of months, Eidos release some screenshots or video about Tomb Raider:Underworld to make the people getting excited. Thor’s Hammer, a mythological artifactis is what Lara searched around the world this time. Surprisingly, the Norse weapon of the God of Thunder appears to have much more in common with other civilizations than previously thought, and could potentially destroy the world.

If you don’t remember or never played the previous series, the developers already provide a quick recap trailer of Lara’s adventures. The games start with a dramatic scene of Croft Manor blowing up. In previous Tomb Raider games, Croft Manor has been used as a tutorial level, and that remains the case, although now Lara has to escape her burning mansion.

The player will learn the mechanic, like hitting the Square button to deploys the grappling hook, which can be used to help you interact with various elements in the world. The hook can be used to help you swing from one area to another or shooting it todoors to let you to pull them off. The Triangle button appears to be an all-purpose action button, as you can use it to interact with the world. That means picking up items on the ground as well as using it to accelerate Lara when she’s climbing walls or moving along ledges by her fingertips. The directional pad is also extremely vital, as you’ll be able to use it to automatically turn on her flashlight with a press of the left button, heal Lara by pressing up, change weapons by pressing right or pull out her camera by pressing down. The Circle button allows players to perform rolls underneath debris, but also avoid incoming attacks.

Eventually, you manage to escape the confines of the Manor, and the story begins, as Lara attempts to explore coordinates left over from her father’s journals. An additional feature held on the PDA is Field Assistance, a feature that previously referred to as Help on Demand. This system still works pretty much as it did before, allowing users to determine how much hand-holding they want as they explore each section. However, Lara now speaks to the player as if she’s thinking her way out of the situation that she’s in, so if you trigger the Hint option, you’ll find out what you should focus on if you’re slightly stuck. If, on the other hand, you’re completely lost, you can hit the Task option and hear directly from Lara what you need to do. It won’t always help you solve a number of the puzzles that are scattered throughout the game, but it will be enough of a push to get you started in the right direction.

Lara had complete freedom to swim around her environments without worrying about finding air pockets. She also had a dolphin kick that  allows her to quickly move through the water, which could be engaged by holding L1. Lara’s PDA is very important, it has sonar map that provides a 3D map of her immediate surroundings, it also provides a journal that keeps track of story elements and characters met in her travels, gives access to the photos taken by the player, and hosts an inventory of items held in Lara’s backpack. Ready to try it? I believe must of you can try this game, because Tomb Raider: Underworld is released on various platform (X360 Live, Playstation 2, Playstation 3, Nintendo DS, Nintendo Wii and PC).

    If you have to warning some sort of long term contract, it really is well-advised which you look at in which agreement to see anything that
    stands out. Failing to do so makes it certain for the company to
    falter drastically in the longer run. SEO is the most prominent tool to drive a huge traffic rate, as search engines really
    give closest attention to well-optimized pages.
