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.
The game is truly recommendable to both older and younger players. The game itself is quite old, but if anyone still remembers the original Tomb Raider will certainly want to play it again but with improved graphics and mechanics. Finally, you can see the famous fight against tyrannosaurs by seeing the sky and the jungle in the background instead of the mysterious black nothingness. I can also recommend this game to those who are fans of second remakes (Tomb Raider and Rise of the Tomb Raider) to see how it all looked like.
Tomb Raider: Anniversary is a faithful remake of the first Tomb Raider game, tying in the reimagined original plot with the narrative of Tomb Raider: Legend and thus setting the ground for the next game, Underworld (players not familiar with the classic games would not recognize Natla, the villain from the first game). Though it is the worst sold Tomb Raider game to date, Anniversary certainly proves its worth as a remake and sequel (well, prequel, tehnically) to Legend by combining the fluid, fun action from it with the locations, puzzles and part of the gameplay elements from the first game. This makes the game truely unique in the Tomb Raider series and really enjoyable and engaging to play. I would also like to add that the soundtrack for the game, composed by Troels Brun Folmann, is excellent (more so than the other Crystal Dynamic Tomb Raider games), particularly the boss themes. I recommend Anniversary to anyone interested in platformers or puzzle games, especially if you're intersted in the Tomb Raider series and haven't tried it until now.
El mayor cambio en la versi?n vuelve a mezclar es que ahorra est?n limitados. Usted tiene que guardar en lugares predeterminados o se pierde toda su progreso si se muere. Me gusta esta nueva caracter?stica, ya que hizo la exploraci?n de un mont?n m?s miedo de lo que es! Por otra parte, el combate y los controles fueron renovados; por lo que es mucho m?s f?cil de combatir y mover. El mayor defecto en la versi?n remasterizada es que la dificultad es muy f?cil a pesar del sistema de parada y munici?n es demasiado abundante. Por otra parte, los puntos de restauraci?n, que se curan, haciendo paquetes de salud casi sin valor! En general, Tomb Raider: Anniversary es un gran juego para que nadie se sienta nostalgia de la serie Tomb Raider!
Tomb Raider: Anniversary holds onto the original story, levels, and a new graphics engine. With a Tomb Raider: Anniversary is a nice step up from its predecessor, though it does have a couple flaws. First off, Tomb Raider is mainly a platforming, puzzle-based game; not a shooter. The shooting portions are limited and quite short. However you do get to fight a lot of monsters! Throughout the game, you explore a multitude of environments, solve puzzles and lethal traps, and basically kill everything. The biggest change in the remaster version is that saves are limited. You have to save in predetermined locations or you lose all your progress if you die. I like this new feature because it made exploring a lot scarier than it is! Furthermore, the combat and controls were revamped; making it much easier to fight and move. The biggest flaw in the remastered version is that the difficulty is very easy despite the save system and ammo is too plentiful. Furthermore, the save points heal you, making health packs almost worthless! Overall, Tomb Raider: Anniversary is a great game for anyone feeling nostalgic about the Tomb Raider series!
