Archaeologist-adventurer Lara Croft embarks on a daring expedition to find a sunken world deep beneath the Arctic Sea. From the crystalline waters of coastal Thailand to the rain-lashed jungles of Mexico and beyond, Lara won’t stop until she has opened its secret gates.
Her journey pits her against a formidable adversary who is after the same prize, and she will need all her wits, courage and athletic prowess to get to it first. As Lara, players will experience an astonishing level of physical interaction with a beautiful, unpredictable and treacherous world in a platforming game of unparalleled sophistication.

Beware, Retina owners
I purchased this game to use on my 2012 Macbook Pro w/ Retina display. I also use a cinema display while at home, often. The game plays beautifully on my cinema display on this computer. Everything is maxxed out and it looks great, great frame rate, although I tried to play it on my MBP Retina screen and the game cannot find any resolution to display in other than 640x480 (in the pre-run screen). There is another screen once the game is running where you can change more video settings in addition to the resolution, I believe, but it doesn't matter because the game immediately crashes once clicking "Play" which is extremely disappointing.
I'm also betting it's very unlikely that a game this old is going to recieve any sort of support for an issue such as this.
Oh well. I wasn't warned, but maybe you will be.
Oh-- and if you have arachnophobia, you might think twice about purchasing this game. Or at least read a little into it first to see if you can handle it.
Other than that, this game is a lot of fun, the one downside would be the combat. The combat is nothing special and a little tedious at times. Every other facet though, really great and lots of fun. I would strongly suggest this to others.
A good game plagued with technical problems
This game could have been so much more enjoyable than it ended up being. It probably took me 3 or so more hours to beat it than actually necessary because of the problems it had. First of all, the camera is the worst I’ve ever experienced in a game before. It doesn’t help show in which direction Lara will jump, and it doesn’t move to show the surrounding area when climbing obstacles. The camera is centered on Lara at all times, which makes finding out where to go next a huge pain. It also desperately tries not to clip through the walls, meaning often it will annoyingly bounce off walls in tight spaces (there are a LOT). Next, Lara seems to go where ever she wants a lot of the time, usually when climbing. I cannot tell you how many times I died trying to jump to a ledge when Lara decided she wanted to jump into the abyss instead. The game does an extremely poor job of telling the player where to go. Sometimes I’ll think I can jump to a platform that’s super close but instead, Lara will just fall to her death instead of grabbing on.
I think this is the only game I’ve ever played where I often knew exactly what I was supposed to do, where I needed to go, and how to get there, and yet still quit in frustration.
Not too happy
I am pretty disappointed with this game. For those of you who have played it on a different system in the past and want to play it again- you will no doubt enjoy it so these words you don't need to read. But for those of you who see all the great reviews and want a new game to download from the mac app store I would suggest not buying. I haven't had a console in years and my macbook pro has let me get back into games… I have loved a couple star wars games, Bioshock, Vice City, and most recently Deus Ex HR. After finishing Deus ex for the third time I wanted to try out something new so I bought this game. The graphics aren't up to par- it is clunky with bad use of camera angles, and the game play just isn't fun. I used to love games like Zelda so I am used to the puzzle format- I just find this game more tedious and hard on the eyes than anything I've played recently. For anybody with a 2011 macbook pro hd intel 3000 graphics card- the game works fine- so if you are like me and you aren't sure whether that graphics card will work- it does. Anyway, I just wanted to throw out a caution.
