Product Description

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.

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

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.

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
On the menu is a note to fans saying that Tomb Raider: Anniversary "borrows heavily" from the original two titles, which is spot on as some rooms are the same and others have been tweaked about a bit, which at least keeps this version feeling fresh and not just a straight remake.

The original Tomb Raider was well designed with some great puzzles and a sense of isolation and loneliness, adventuring Indiana Jones-like in exotic locations. Tomb Raider: Anniversary retains everything that made the original fun and exciting to play but brings the graphics up to date and introduces a few new moves and controls to make gameplay easier. I particularly like the cut-scenes and plot revolving around "The Scion" - they are so reminiscent of the archaeological adventure films and stories I enjoyed as a child.

My only criticism is that some of the puzzles feel tedious, involving traipsing all over levels, pulling switches and collecting items from place A to use in place B, repeated ad nauseam. This could get boring even back in the day, but thankfully there are enough elegant and satisfying puzzles to make up for the more simplistic ones. The action (including T-Rexes!) is just as electrifying as it always was, even if it still feels a bit unsporting to shoot all these poor animals, despite them attacking Lara.

If you played the original then this is a superb way to return to the series and remember what Tomb Raider was all about (before the disappointing sequels). If you've never played a Tomb Raider game then this is a great place to start.

It's worth pointing out that the PC version looks a bit better than the PlayStation 2 version and it doesn't require a monster PC so, provided you can play PC games comfortably, it's probably the better version to go for.

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.
