  1. Tomb Raider’s puzzles remain just as challenging as before, and you’ll spend plenty of time just looking around rooms trying to figure out how to move on to the next area. Thankfully they never get boring.
  2. Anniversary is not quite the game that Legend was. Though initially I was floored by how well the series had been updated, as time went on and the frustrations piled up, it started to lose the raw appeal. It's good, but not great.

    While it's a solid enough game, once the feelings of nostalgia wane, you may feel a bit restricted by the game's linearity and the sometimes difficult camera.
  4. A damn good remake of a damn good game.

    As a port, it does the job. But the convulsive controls and lack of new features makes TRA for PSP only an optional extra to the PS2 experience. [Aug 2007, p.99]
  6. Thankfully, when you die, which will be quite frequently, the loading times are kept mercifully short and don't add to the frustration like so many other PSP games.

I like how the controls were bastly improved from the PSP version of Tomb Raider Legend, I love how smooth its framerate is. It's a portable game with a pretty good lenght for a linear experience (something about 7-10 hours). It's a portable version of a console experience without any substantial sacrifice: yes, the game looks a little flat compared to its PS3 and Xbox 360 cousins, but the fact that every layout, secret, and moveset made it to the PSP is something very loable.
    This game is not hard in any way, the climbing is organic and paceful and the level-puzzle design is somewhat condescendent, but still fun. The only bad implemented feature of this game (no matter what version of it) is the combat: the enemies (with one or two exceptions) are boring, annoying, even pointless. The bosses are okay and sometimes a genuine challenge. Overall, this game is great, and in the PSP is awesome and lovely.
