The games keep coming and pirates keep cracking them. The latest installment to the popular adventure game series Tomb Raider, titled Tomb Raider : Underworld has been cracked and released three days before the game’s street date by scene group RELOADED. This game, like many other games in 2008, uses the SecuROM DRM. RELOADED have released a modified executable (cracked exe or a crack) which has the SecuROM protection stripped off it. Their release also includes a full Multi 5 ISO (Multilanguage ISO of the game with ENG/GER/ESP/IT/FR/NL language versions) of the game. Using the ISO and the crack , pirates or legitimate users can play the full game it seems. RELOADED’s release has already made it’s way into torrent trackers (public and private), one click hosting sites and so on. Tomb Raider series is known for early leaks; even the previous installment, TR : Anniversary was leaked well before official release date when an early review copy of the game sent to a game review magazine was released to public.

Underworld is scheduled to be released on the 18th in North America and 21st in Europe. There are currently no reviews of the PC version online but the PS3 version has an aggregated score of 80% on GameRankings. From the screens I have seen, the game looks great. And if you are interested, there was a demo of this game released earlier.


Designed specifically to take advantage of the latest technologies Tomb Raider: Underworld represents a new advancement in exploration-based gameplay. As fearless adventurer Lara Croft explore exotic locations around the world, each designed with an incredible attention to detail resulting in breathtaking high-definition visual fidelity that creates a truly believable world and delivers a new level of challenge and choice. 

For generations, stories have been told of the fearsome weapon of the Norse god Thor. Legend holds that he who wields the hammer has the power to smash mountains into valleys and the strength to destroy even the gods. For more than a thousand years it has existed only as a myth…until now.  In an ancient ruin on the floor of the Mediterranean Sea, Lara Croft uncovers proof of the Norse underworld and the mythical hammer. As she attempts to unravel the secrets behind these myths, Lara’s perilous journey leads her toward a forgotten power that, if unleashed, could lay waste to all civilization.
