Fans of the original Tomb Raider game (1996) look no further for a sequel/remake fit for the XBox 360. Tomb Raider Anniversary delivers.

Modified for new gamers and fans of the original, all on the sleek and stylish graphics and sounds of the 360, Tomb Raider takes you back to where it all started with some new surprises in store for you.

Playing as the ever gorgeous Lara Croft (looking stunning in this model!), you traverse dangerous tombs, caverns and lost temples in search of a lost artifact that could hold the balance of universal power inside. You face booby traps at every turn, dangerous animals stalk you in the shadows and deadly rival hunters and mercs seek you out to stop you delvin deeper into the exciting and engaging story which will hook you for hours until you finally raid the tomb and discover the secret within.

Great fun and a fresh look to the Tomb Raider series, back where it began with a nice modern twist. Take it from me, you will NOT be dissapinted with this Tomb Raider adventure.

Tomb Raider Anniversary is the first Tomb Raider game I've played and it was absolutely fantastic. There were some moments of incredible frustration and sections that I hated it but I was so hooked I couldn't stop playing. The shear amount of problems to solve and rooms to visit is mind blowing. There are some rooms where you wonder around for what at the time seemed like hours without the slightest clue what you are supposed to do. This just adds to the satisfaction you feel when you figure it out. At first I wasn't impressed with the combat sequences and they seemed unnecessary. However once I started to work out how to use the rage moves they became much more interesting. Visually it was beautiful and Lara just looks fantastic. The only quibble I might have is that much of it was very linear which doesn't make replaying particularly interesting as there aren't multiple ways of approaching the problems with the exception of a few. However it's a very challenging, fun and rewarding game.

I remember playing through the original on ps one as though it were yesterday!
Tomb Raider anniversary returns to the first game with a bang,ever since this game was released as a final outing for ps2 I have been awaiting eagerly for them to release it on a next gen console. It has made its transition well, although not without its share of bugs.
All the puzzle elements of the tomb raider classic return with some genuinely head scratching game play. If you are a fan of the series then you will be giving up your free time to hours of frustrating but fun gameplay as you try that leap of faith on a "one more go" basis only to find yourself plumit to to the ground yet again before realising there is another ledge within your reach just round the corner. Graphically there is not much new but this is a game based on solid gameplay and as such I cannot fault it!
A must buy for all fans of the series and newcomers alike!

I play loads of shooter type games, call of duty, Halo etc but this is by far the toughest in many places, but also a lot of fun when its all working out, in fact if you want a game to drive you crazy the first time you play it, Tomb Raider can do it. Thank goodness for the gamers on Youtube who film themselves playing the Tomb Raider games, otherwise I would be putting the game in a draw. As I am new to this puzzle style game I can see that it will get better the second time around and Its still a great game to have but you may need to have Youtube on at the same time but out of the four Tomb Raider games I have , this gets played the most.

I have been a fan of Tomb Raider for years although I never really thought the original was that good due to the bad controls and camera and then playing the Gamecube TR:Legend which I thought was one of the best TR games around, and this is just like it in every aspect. The controls are excellent and feel good, the camera angles are very good and the graphics are very good. I think the gameplay is excellent, there is loads of puzzles to do and items to find and enemies to kill. Different levels of difficulty also make the game very intersting too. This has got to be in my opinion one of the best tomb raiders around, and this is the first tomb raider modified for the 360 with new stuff in it.

As you may or may not know i have been a huge fan of Lara
Croft and the Tomb Raider games since the first one.. i was
looking forward to this latest addition, even more so as i now
have an XBox 360..

The graphics, as usual, are amazing.. it more than lives up to
my expectations..

The game play is also amazing.. its like a combination of all the
other Tomb Raider games rolled into one.. There are loads of
puzzles to solve, most are really tricky..

On the whole its a must have for all Tomb Raider fans.. even
for those who aren't the game provides a lot of fun, action,
skill and excitement..

This game is a re-mastered version of the original Tomb Raider game released on the playstation. There are some enhancements to the original game but the essence of the original is still present. Time trial missions offer a new repeat challenge. I recommend this trip down memory lane and shows how the original had all the puzzles that the new Tomb Raider lacked.

This was the best new release in the franchise for some time - the game engine has been improved, and the controls updated to deliver more fun interactive game. i found myself hooked within 10 mins. Any fan will love this and any newbie will be a fan. The background scenery is truly stunning.

I haven't personally played this game. However, I bought this as a gift, and the recipient assures me that it is very enjoyable.

I believe it is a remake of the original, with some modern features.

If you love the series, I'm sure you'll love this game.
