Product Description

Product Description

In 1996, the original Tomb Raider was launched. The 3D game design, controls and graphics were truly ground breaking for their time. Furthermore, gamers were also presented with a unique, female human playable character with whom they could become emotionally attached, Lara Croft. The original Tomb Raider sold over seven million copies and is still heralded as an absolute classic and one of the best action adventure games ever. Tomb Raider defined the PlayStation and changed the way that people played games. In tribute to this and to celebrate and commemorate the continuing development of the Tomb Raider franchise and its central character, Crystal Dynamics are developing a new Tomb Raider adventure for Lara. Inspired by the original Tomb Raider video game; Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Anniversary faithfully preserves the elements which made the original Tomb Raider game such a classic. Using an enhanced Tomb Raider: Legend game engine, the graphics, technology and physics bring Laras adventure and pursuit of a mystical artefact known only as the Scion right up to todays technology standards and will offer gamers a completely new gameplay experience. Celebrate and commemorate ten years of Tomb Raider and Lara Croft with Tomb Raider: Anniversary, an entirely new gameplay experience inspired by the first ever Tomb Raider adventure. Tomb Raider: Anniversary uses an enhanced version of the Tomb Raider: Legend game engine to apply Crystal Dynamics latest PS2 technology. Play the living Lara Croft, the worlds greatest action heroine of all time use all of Laras guile, athleticism and gadgets in her quest to conquer the unknown and uncover ancient artefacts. Includes classic environments from the original Tomb Raider as never experienced before Crystal Dynamics latest technology allows you to fluidly manoeuvre Lara using her latest moves

Amazon.co.uk Review

It may have sold 30 million copies worldwide, but before the release of Tomb Raider: Legend last year it looked like Lara Croft was ending her video game career in disgrace. Thankfully the new game was exactly the reboot that the series needed, instantly reminding everyone why they loved it (and Lara) so much in the first place. So to mark the tenth anniversary of the first game (actually 2007 is the eleventh anniversary, but who’s counting?) Eidos are releasing this special remake of the first game in the series, using an enhanced version of the graphics engine from Tomb Raider: Legend.

Although the game does feature the same basic settings and levels as the original, this isn’t just the same game with better graphics. Most of the levels are larger, with many new paths and areas to explore. They’re also much more interactive, with Lara using many of the same moves and gadgets she demonstrated in Tomb Raider: Legend, including a grappling hook and a greater variety of weapons. The story has been expanded too, but it does keep the same basic structure with more animal enemies than the later games, including the infamous encounter with a tyrannosaurs rex. Instead of just running straight at you mindlessly, the enemies have also been given much better artificial intelligence than previously.

The new graphics are still the most obvious change but the new fluid movement of Lara is a world away from the awkward grid based system used in the old games. Indeed this should be the first video game remake to actually prove itself as something more than just a cheap cash-in.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Tomb Raider release EVER! 4 Jun 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Yes, this time round, Tomb Raider Anniversary really has become the much-loved game that fans have always wished for in the past few years. And after Angel Of Darkness and the fun but short Legend this is EXACTLY what we needed. This game is simply AMAZING!

Lara is back in the tombs but this time round using the Legend engine she has never moved or looked as good. The graphics are just breathtaking and the feeling if isolation so very present. This is a remake in some respects as everything from Tomb Raider is there but it's a different take on the game altogether by bringing it completely up-to-date and offering something completely new.

Difficulty - This game is challenging!! I kid you not, there have been moments when I have thrown the controller across the room and had to take a break in fear of getting too angry and giving up. But don't let this put you off, this is exactly what Legend was lacking which made that game such a dissapointment and I am playing on hard and getting all the secrets and artifacts. You may find yourself having to try things a few times which is what annoys me but if a game annoys me then I know I'm enjoying it because I want so badly to defeat it and see what's next. We all love a challenge now don't we? Lara herself is easy and fun to control and offers a range of new moves which are all cool and some of the levels are so big you will have plenty of free range to run and explore, it's just that there are many many puzzles and difficult traps to solve and maneuver yourself through. The answers aren't there in front of you, you're left to explore and figure it all out.

New features - Lara has some new moves including a new balancing feature, which enables Lara to land on slim structures and balance before proceeding.

5.0 out of 5 stars A worthy remake 8 Jun 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
It's difficult trying to figure out what to compare Tomb Raider: Anniversary to - the original, Legend, or to just take the game as it is?

The original Tomb Raider has always been a subject of great nostalgia and was one of the first games I played on the PS. It was scary, full of surprises, but also full of wonderful sights {even though the draw distance obscured some}, namely the Sphinx, the T-Rex, and the sheer scale of St Francis' Folly. I was a little concerned how TR: Anniversary would replicate them, but I had nothing to worry about. All of the little views that I adored from the first game are here, and improved vastly. The graphics have come along way, although there will always be a fondness for the 90s blocky pixels, so now even a simple pool of water becomes breathtaking. The environments look real, and a lot of emphasis is put on the towering structures and huge waterfalls.

To leave out all mention of the music would be a crime. It is beautiful in the right places, and frightening in others. It is not overdone or interruptive, but knows when to move in. Most battles will be accompanied by a sweeping score that will probably startle you just in time for a huge hairy something to leap out, but a soft tune will increase your feeling of awe as you stare at something shiny. Great stuff ^^

Lara herself has been smoothed out and updated, and the old costume is back. She still wields her dual pistols, but will also find some new weapons along the way.

The combat system is the same as Legend's, although now with the inclusion of an Adrenaline Dodge feature, which enables you to finish off enemies quicker if you time it just right. It also looks very cool.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but frustrating 14 July 2007
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Everyone that has played TR since the beginning has been looking forward to the next one and I only stumbled across this one after having been disappointed with the Angel of Darkenss balls-up and not that excited about Legend. This one looked pretty decent though: we're back to the original TR and all those memories of being round my mate's house on his PS1 running around and getting scared at the cool sounds came flooding back!

Anniversary is a decent game - it looks fantastic, sounds fantastic, but the frustration you can get from playing the game can overshadow this. It's largely down to the controls and camera angles - which aren't bad at all most of the time, but some of the tasks you have to perform (grappling, wall-run, timed-courses, timing jumps, not landing on poles etc, getting knocked off ledges) take away a bit too much of the fun and effects the flow of the game. Falling and dying and waiting for it to load again can wear on your sanity a bit. Once you manage to master it though (a bit of luck in some cases!) and finally get through a particular section, it's a relief on one hand but you'll not want to have to go through all the aggro of doing it again, which is a great shame because this effects the replay value.

Croft Manor is pretty good and it's satisfying playing through that. There are some nice bonues in there and you'll want to replay through it all to get all the things you might have missed the first time. But again it's that frustration that you get from facing certain obstacles that might put you off.

A great game though - looks great, sounds fantastic, controls pretty well but let down by some hugely frustrating sections. To sum it up: anyone have a level-skip cheat?

1.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointed.
Giving it a one star. A very poorly developed game. Movements are glitchy and gameplay is very repetitive. Stick to the original and don't bother wasting your money on this one. Read more
