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.
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!
