Conclusion: Legend and Underworld are both good, while I think Anniversary teeters on the absolute brilliant quite often – but three games of that quality for a bargain-basement price is an offer I find hard to refuse and hard not to recommend – especially if you’ve a hankering for a bit of artefact hunting...
Conclusion: Tomb Raider took a turn for the worse in the last decade, but unbeknownst to me, it rebounded back for a trilogy of good games. This collection gets them all together at a great price that will whet your appetite for the next game.

Excerpt: This new trend of combining older titles into one neat HD package is becoming commonplace and I, for one, support it. It is nice to return to these classic titles the same way you remember them.
Pros: + Three games, one disc, + Trophy Support, + HD visuals upgrades
