Summary: I think this game has such a high User Score because too many players are overly loyal to the series and unwilling to admit that this is a bad game. After playing the game for several hours it feels more like a chore than a delight. Unresponsive controls, terrible camera angles, worthless auto-aim, and awful boss fights. That pretty much sums it up.
Summary: I got this as a gift during the Steam sales recently. The only Tomb Raider games I've played before were 2 and 3, over 10 years ago. So for me Tomb Raider: Anniversary still felt like a fresh game. If you've played every Tomb Raider game there is perhaps your opinion would be different. I liked playing it a lot.
Summary: Fun exploration, good sense of place, nice atmosphere. Even in 2011, the graphics hold up pretty well. The puzzles are usually at a pretty good difficulty. The game really does a good job of making you feel like you're exploring places that have been untouched for years and set up by masterminds.
Summary: I have been watching my sister play this game. It is easy enough she wants to keep going but hard enough she doesn't get bored. The sound and graphics are very realistic - she was actually jumping when the wolves jumped out at her. Good game.
Pros: Challenging, Easy to Learn, Engaging Story Line, Gameplay, Graphics, Great Sound
Summary: If you were hoping for a PC remake of the PS Tomb Raider 1 as I was, you will be severely disappointed, it isn't half the game that Tomb Raider 1 is (one of my all time favorites that I still replay). From frustrating gameplay to many parts of the original left out, it got to the point near the end of not being worth trying the same section over and over and over and just wishing to get past that part.
