About This Game

Tomb Raider: Anniversary retraces Lara Croft's original genre-defining adventure — globe-trotting 3rd person action-adventure in pursuit of the legendary Scion artifact. Using an enhanced 'Tomb Raider: Legend' game engine, the graphics, technology and physics bring Lara's adventure and pursuit of a mystical artifact known only as the Scion right up to today's technology standards and offers gamers a completely new gameplay experience. Re-imagined, Anniversary delivers a dynamic fluidly and fast Lara Croft, massive environments of stunning visuals, intense combat and game pacing, and an enhanced and clarified original story.
  • Epic Exploration - The lost city of Atlantis and ancient Egyptian pyramids are ripe for discovery: explore every hidden dark crevice and impossible heights; enter into strange, undiscovered lands and solve their deepest, darkest mysteries; open doors to new realms, uncover great rewards and unearth secrets to Lara's past.
  • Acrobatic Gunplay - Deftly leap around charging enemies while you unleash a hail of bullets from your trademark dual pistols.
  • Lethal Predators - The wilderness awaits with a wide range of bestial predators—from bats to wolves to bears—ready to defend their territory from human encroachment. New and improved AI means that all enemies will exhibit a more diverse behaviour set, providing improved combat challenges for the player.
  • Supernatural elements are used sparingly to provide a mystical allure around the world, while maintaining the world's grounded core. The awesome T-Rex and intriguing Atlantean centaurs suck you in to the wonderfully intriguing and mysterious world of Tomb Raider.
  • Death-Defying Environmental Playground - Leap over massive gaps, cling onto rock ledges, and swim through underground tunnels.
  • Solve the Diabolical Machinery of the Past - seek to outwit the brilliant ancient designers of many epic puzzles and vaults in order to uncover their secrets. Be warned that they do not take kindly to 'meddling', and as such, the price of failure is extreme.

Great fun at the beginning, but even on easy, I was unable to defeat the centurion bosses. Just way too much to handle and too difficult to complete. Everything up to that point was great.

I'd never played a Tomb Raider before the reboot and now I'm grateful I hadn't. There are plenty of huge issues with the game: at times cumbersome controls, clipping through objects when trying to grapple things that aren't the intended solution, terrible combat with awful AI, the checkpoint system in place that only lets you restart in said designated checkpoints when the game really needs quicksaves or something similar to the reboot. All of this could be chalked up to lack of polish (even if it is supposed to be a remake....), but that really isn't the case. This game is flawed at its core. It is so god damn boring.

If you don't like the first hour don't even bother going through the rest. It doesn't change one bit. Most of the mechanics are introduced up front, and the aforementioned issues will continue to knaw and knaw at you until you're throwing your hands up in frustration. There is absolutely nothing to break up the monotony. I liked what few cutscenes there were but they didn't hint at a real plot or anything. I managed to get through Peru with much struggling and the first part of the Greek tomb before getting tired of falling off and having to climb all the way back up again because the checkpoint was at the bottom of a huge pit.

Don't buy this game. Don't buy this franchise for that matter.

I was but a wee lad when the Original Tomb Raider came out. I remember watching my brothers play it.
Though when it finally came my turn, I couldn't get around the clunky controls.

This game fixes that issue. While it is not flawless, the flow of control (Xbox360 Wired Controller) the game is much smoother. The Graphics are nice, the music and atomosphere is great. The game all round was a delight to play.
There are a number of cheap deaths due to glitches where you can grab a ledge or simply go through it at times. But those minor issues aside. I really enjoyed the game and would recommend it to anyone interested in some old school adventure puzzle platforming with a newage graphical revamp.

Not Played to much of it yet, but I am enjoying this remake of the first classic. It changes up the level design just enough to give you a new tomb raider experience, but at the same time they leave a lot of the original game intact. One complaint may be that swimming controlls (at least while use a 360 controller) could be a bit tighter. Also, the camara may swing about it's own way but most of the time it works well. And thank the heavens they didn't keep that stiff controll from the original. I would score this (from what I've played so far) 8/10

It was a good idea to revamp the original title but I still wouldn't say it was a perfect one. The begining was pretty easy but as you go to the later levels it wasn't that the puzzles were hard, its that the usual horrible tomb raider camera angles with frustrating platforming that can really suck the fun out of you, expecially in a few areas. The combat wasn't bad though the boss fights forced you to use different tactics to win which kinda sucks. The game isn't bad but its a shame they didn't just revamp all the old tomb raiders instead of just this one. Still it is fun and I'm glad that the new tomb raider is such a fantastic franchise now. I don't know if I can stomach to play the really old tomb raiders from 2-7 but we'll see what happens. Maybe, just maybe I'll get a hankering to playing them. Until then, I would say this game is decent but not extremely great unless your into such things.

Mixing the great original story and locations with beautiful visuals and few new encounters. Though I have to admit some places may seem confusing and sometime it's frustrating when you get lost in some huge complex. So I would probably not recommend it to Tomb Raider virgins. Well but it doesn't change the fact, that it's really a great game!
Conclusion: Anniversary is a sweet tribute gift for Lara's fans. 4/5

I was only a wee little kid when I last played this (on the PS1).
I really had to rack my brain to remember anything.
The new look threw me off a lot.
I have to be honest and say that I spent a great deal of time googling and checking out Wiki articles to double-check it was in fact the same game I played ages ago.

It really felt like a new(ish) game.
It definitely is better than the original with the updated engine.
Only fragments of the game are there in my memory.

I do remember feeling that same old excitement you have for entering new areas to solve the new puzzles.
By the time I had to stop playing, it was well into the next morning when I realized how much time went by and how much sleep I lost revisiting this gem.

I would love to see the next 2 TR games remastered in this fashion.
I remember having played 2 more than 1 (as we lost the disc to 1).

Quitensential Tomb Raider and how a remake (not really a remake more an update) of a classic should be done (now we just need that Final Fantasy 7 one). Greatly visually updated (even looks pretty great now), tight controls, intelligent puzzles and platforming (the type that makes you feel smart when you figure it out and progress / find that relic).

The game offers that same great sense of adventure, puzzling and challenge mixed in with mild combat and treasure finding as any great Tomb Raider-eqse game should.

NOTE:
It is pad native and works great but not screen native (shows the keyboard keys instead of the xbox buttons) but it's easy to figure out what is what unlike in say FF7 where it's consistently a nightmare.

Good remake to the original game that initiated this extensive and acclaimed franchise.

Being a remake of the first Tomb Raider, the gameplay is predominantly focused on scenario puzzles. There's action sequences and combat, but they are few in number, thus the pace might not suit gamers looking for something more dynamic. Despite old, the game features satisfactory graphics and mechanics as well as a good sound quality. There is also a good variety of scenarios and their puzzles, which contribute to not become a repetitive and predictable game. The plot is dispensable and the end doesn't excite.

It has some problems with the camera which sometimes irritates, and despite having full joypad support, the commands presentation are for the keyboard/mouse, which can lead to disorientation. In the end it's a good game, but I would only recommend for those who love and have played the old Tomb Raider games, or enjoy games based on puzzles.

7/10
