Tomb Raider: Underworld is a single player, action-adventure video game. The game is presented in third person perspective, where the player takes control of Lara Croft. Lara's environment reproduces a more "interactive world that reacts and remembers", such that footprints left in the mud or mud transferred to Lara's knee from kneeling on the ground is washed away by rain, the bodies of the foes she encounters remain where she killed them, and any destruction to the environment she causes are permanent.

Trivia

  • Original names: トゥームレイダー アンダーワールド (SLPS-25927)
  • The PAL version of this game supports multiple languages through the BIOS configuration. Implementation requires Full boot - "Boot CDVD (full)".


Known Issues

Graphics are broken

  • Status: Active
  • Type: Major
  • Description: Major graphic corruption occurs in both Hard- and Software renders. It looks a bit better in the Software renderers, but there's still artifacts and distortions occurring. Basically the game is unplayable because of this while using the Hardware renderers.
  • Workaround: In recent revisions of PCSX2 (at least v1.5.0), the CRC hacks have been updated where this effect is completely skipped, making the game playable while using Hardware renderers. To enable this, go to Config > Video (GS) > Plugin Settings > Set CRC Hack level to 'Automatic (Default)'. Keep in mind that this is not an actual fix but a workaround, it merely makes the game playable, and you're missing out on various graphic effects such as the reddish glow from the fire in the first level, etc.
