    Tomb Raider: Anniversary is a great game. When it comes to remaking a game that is so great and iconic, its often hard to live up to the reputation, but the remake dose it well. It integrates the new game play mechanics introduced with Tomb Raider: Legend such as the grappling hook and revamped targeting system, giving it more of a modern feel, while staying true to the roots of the original. The game gives of a very nostalgic vibe to those who played the first Tomb Raider when it came out such as myself, and it was fun to relive iconic moments such as the T-Rex. On the PS2 the game handles very well, the environments look stunning and the puzzles in them are great. All in all a wonderful experience and tribute to the original. Expand

    A re-imagining of the original. With fewer similarities and more changes. TRA does a good job capturing the the mood and feel of the original, but it fails to surpass it. Even with updated technology. This is basically Tomb Raider: Legend, but done in style the resembles the classics. The gameplay here is deeper than the original and even Legend. Visuals, music, and re-playability are all done well. Probably one of the better of modern Tomb Raider games since the original. Expand

    I really wish I hadn't put this game off for all these years. Due to the stagnation of the current gen of gaming, it's given me motivation and reason to go back and play older games that I may have missed. I was a big fan of the original and I can say with all due respect this game is just as good if not better than the original. The game controls smoother, the levels are just as big and creative, the puzzles are among the best of any game I've played. THIS is how you do a remake. I hear some people saying the game was dumbed down a bit, with the way it auto grabs, but IMO the game makes up for it by adding other complexities in the platforming that such a change allows for. You can also turn off the autograbbing if you like, but you'll realize it doesn't really make a difference aside from requiring you to just pointlessly holding a button down.. TR:A is also not afraid to challenge you, especially in the time trials, which are there to add some great challenges to unlock a plethora of interesting content that you'd have to pay for in the form of DLC today. My only complaint with the game is that the grabbing and jumping at certain angles can be somewhat glitchy, there's kind of a learning curve to figuring how it works and how to avoid it. Otherwise this is one hell of a game for both fans of TR and platforming alike. Expand
