Tomb Raider: Anniversary
" I loved playing Tomb Raider: Anniversary, in fact I enjoyed it to the extent of often staying up way too late just wanting to see what came next or trying to get through a particularly difficult section. I would thoroughly recommend this game, both to fans of the original, and newcomers alike." - Strategyinformer.com
"It takes the inspirational level design of the original, improves upon the atmosphere, and makes the whole thing so much more fun thanks to the hugely refined control and camera system. Far from being a tired, cynical cash-in exercise of a brand past its prime, Tomb Raider Anniversary goes back to its roots and shows how remakes should be done." - Eurogamer.net

Good remakeJorgel | March 25, 2013 | See all Jorgel's reviews »
It's the first Tomb Raider that I really played. First of all, it's a great remake: the grapphics are very good(for it's time), and there are some improvments in the game as a whole. The history is quite interesting, even though a little cliche. Despite the fact it's a good game in general, there are some issues, especially in gameplay and the controls that can be very frustrating, making some situations more difficult than they should be. I really liked this game, but because of some problems I stopped playing it. I hope to return to it and finish it some day

The first time when I played that game, I was a bit sceptic about it. But then as I continiued playing, I then became a fan of the Tomb Raider franchise. This game is the perfect adventure for someone who is searching for a game with ancient artifacts, cool battles, mind blowing puzzles and of course a female character. The gameplay is very nice. The controls are comfortable, and the story that the game offers is satisfying and enjoying. I recommend it to everyone who wants to start with the Tomb Raider franchise, because it is the best one to start with.
The best action adventureasdefi | Feb. 2, 2013 | See all asdefi's reviews »
A bold claim, but there are no better games like this that combine great and difficult jumping and platforming/navigating sections, with some truly devious puzzles (though you won't need a FAQ to figure them out) and the shooting sections work perfectly. Lengthy and has some truly breathtaking level design and environments. Felt like really going into an adventure, but that's the goal I suppose.
I liked it more than the other Crystal Dynamics TR games, because of its difficulty, length and level design. It felt unrestrained, uncompromised by the design tenets of modern or even at the time, not sugar coated and designed by committee.

Tomb Raider Anniversary is good adventure game. Maybe modern look has done bad things to Tomb Raider series, but Anniversary is probably best Tomb Raider game in the 2000's. Still I think it lack's that adventure feeling that I used to have when I played first Tomb Raider games. Anniversary is that kind of game that you return to play when you have nothing else to do.
If you think of buying Tomb Raider Anniversary, get gamepad. Keyboard/mouse combo is no fun to play with.
Old fashioned, hard, but excellent remakeGuardian412 | Jan. 25, 2013 | See all Guardian412's reviews »
Tomb Raider: Anniversary is a hard game, which is following the game design of the 90s. This game does not have HUD displays and flashing neon hints over and over again, so as mainstream games has these days. You must think a lot to overwhelm even the easiest challenges and levels. Long, polished and challenging, very faithful to the original Tomb Raider. Tomb Raider: Anniversary is an excellent remake.
