    Just like the Prince of Persia Collection, Tomb Raider Trilogy delivers three fantastic action games in one package. If you missed at least two of them, this is a must-buy.

    Tomb Raider Trilogy is a fun compilation, but the lackluster shooting action draws the final score down. [May 2011]

    Although we miss some content, like the extra downloadable chapters of Tomb Raider Underworld, this is still a great compilation which offers many hours of fun for an affordable price.

    Tomb Raider can't die! After years of erring ways, Lara succeeded in restoring its dignity thanks to the efforts of Crystal Dynamics. Of course, fans will be delighted to find in a single, low-price release the great episodes Anniversary and Underworld (Legend being a little behind), it's first and foremost to all adventure lovers that this trilogy will be appealing, with its substantial life (you can count more than 40 hours of gameplay in there). Lara succeeded in correcting its own shortcomings, and if the fans may disregard this compilation, maybe it's time for the others, those who broke up with Lara years ago, to try and spark their love anew... while we wait for a real reboot.

    Not much of an HD update, but these relics have mostly stood the test of time. [May 2011, p.89]

    If you already own some version of Legend, Anniversary, and Underworld, you won't have much reason to shell out the cash for this collection.

Legend tries to be very cinematic with a lot of cut scenes and timed events which is great but at the same time the game is buggy and short. I still had fun playing it. On the other hand Anniversary is the very first Tomb Raider ever made but in a director's cut mode. Easyli one of the best Tomb Raiders ever. Underworld is also fun, albeit I would like to have more exploration and less gunfights. Actually this goes for Legend too. But the games are really great and worth a buy, especially in the HD format they now find themselves in. Expand

    Lara Croft has been the queen of video games for 15 years and counting. As I'm beginning to wait for next year on the awaiting reboot of TombLara Croft has been the queen of video games for 15 years and counting. As I'm beginning to wait for next year on the awaiting reboot of Tomb Raider, nothing can't slow me down by playing a great HD collection just like God of War and Prince of Persia. I love Tomb Raider Legend, Anniversary, and Underworld! It reminds me of how Lara got started since day 1 after the original game was released in 1996, with the gun-totting Indiana Jones style along with her signature turquise suit and her infamous breast implants which paved the way for fans on why she is considered as a sex symbol to hardcore gamers everywhere. Pick this collection today. It's a great price and a great offer. Expand

    Great bargain for 2 of the 3 games at least. Tomb Raider Legend and Anniversary are both amazing games, and while Tomb Raider: UnderworldGreat bargain for 2 of the 3 games at least. Tomb Raider Legend and Anniversary are both amazing games, and while Tomb Raider: Underworld isn't very good it is still playable. I played TRL originally on the 360 and never completed it, this collection gave me the chance to and I have to say it was quite good. Anniversary on the other hand I had not played ever so it was all new to me. The controls were pretty much the same in all of them so it was easy to pick up. Underworld's controls felt slightly different then the other 2 TR games, much less fluent and it seemed like Lara moved way too fast. The story was pretty solid in both games Legend was quite short I completed it in about 6 hours. Anniversary took me about 14 hours. Over all if you have not played TR Legend or Anniversary this is a great pick up. Expand

    Well for each game in the set I would give 8 to 8.5 if I played them back in those days when they were released.
    I loved the set. I liked the story. Not epic but the puzzles where fun.
    Hated the Camera battles. Wished there was a map for the collectibles because they are hard to spot most of the times.
    Overall I enjoyed playing the set. I wanted to know Lara Croft in her glory days before starting the new Tomb Raider where she starts as fragile surviver

    This trilogy contains the remake of the first Tomb Raider ever and the first two episodes made by Crystal Dynamic, this is a true relic ofThis trilogy contains the remake of the first Tomb Raider ever and the first two episodes made by Crystal Dynamic, this is a true relic of the past since the reboot of the franchise and the changes made to the licence are pretty obvious after you played this game.

    Technically the game is good and even if none of this game are really old they all look worthy of the hardware. I don't have much to say about this.

    Concerning the gameplay it's a mix of platforming, puzzle and action like any good adventure game, it may be a bit too easy and arcade, specially the gunfights with unlimited ammo and auto aiming, but it's never frustrating, in the contrary it's pretty fun and you'll love solving those puzzle like a true explorer.

    The story is pretty weak for the two first game of this trilogy but the third achieve to link all this and has a better writing, the voice overs are also pretty bad and contribute to this feeling of cheap movie. But the thrill of revisiting legends like Excalibur, Atlantis, Thor's hammer, etc. will keep you going if you are interested by all those stories. Each game last a little less than 10 hours, it's a bit short if you take it one by one, but the 25-30 hours needed for finishing the trilogy is way more acceptable.

    So in conclusion those games truly show the gap that was created by Uncharted when it came out, here the story is cheesy,and the arcade feeling cuts the immersion, despite some good puzzles and setting. Advisable for big adventure fans or old school gamers that want to play to the "old" Tomb Raider" games.
