Tomb Raider: Underworld Cheat Codes

If you play Underworld while connected to Xbox LIVE, or if you download the "Beneath the Ashes" and/or "Lara's Shadow" bonus levels, you will receive a game update which disables the cheats. For more information, see Team Xbox News. For a work-around to keep the cheats enabled, see the footnote below.

XBOX CHEAT CODES - UPDATE: If your Xbox 360 is connected to Xbox Live (via the internet) then you are prompted to download an update for the game when you put the disc in for the first time. If you download this update it patches the game negating the cheats, which were not supposed to be included in the game. People playing the game for the first time can avoid it by just unplugging their internet while playing. You will still be able to unlock achievements.

Note that the update does include some bug fixes, so you might want to keep that in mind when deciding whether or not to download it. Also, you will not be able to download the "Beneath the Ashes" and/or "Lara's Shadow" bonus levels without also receiving the update.

If you have already downloaded the update, you have to clear your cache to remove it. Instructions for doing this can be found at http://vgstrategies.about.com/od/xbox360faqs/a/ClearX360Cache.htm. Doing this will also remove any updates you may have downloaded for other games. You will need to reinstall those later. So do this at your own risk.

Thanks to Taylor and RG for sharing the Underworld info and Laracroftswest, who apparently made the original discovery that some of the Legend cheat codes work in this game. I'm also grateful to Austin for the heads-up about the Xbox patch, to Kendall and Marie for this useful work-around for re-enabling the cheats, and to Bruno for sending in a correction for the PC cheats using the Xbox controller. For more info on how the codes work and links to the forum threads where these discoveries were first posted, please visit RG's Tomb Raider Fan Site.
