TR Anniversary for PS2

Summary: Yes!!!!!!!!!!! This is what I was after! The first TR I ever played was TR3 - the first instalment with water ripples, the ability to shimmy around corners, and the improved menu interface. The sound, the looks, the puzzles, the moves - all were great. The downside was you had to find hidden save crystals to save progress and they were few and far between. The result was that if you died you could find yourself repeating much of the level again. That ruined the game.
Summary: I love the challenges and the cinematics, and the characters have been very well thought up. The only problem is it's slightly depressing because she's completely on her own and sometimes in very dark places with an eerie atmosphere. I'm sure that this is just me, because the first game I played was Legend, in which she constantly has conversations with Zip and Alistair via handset, so I became accustomed to that.
Summary: It's a good game with a lot of puzzles a lot of going back to the same places over & over to stolve that puzzle. I was really really stuck on this for like 20 minutes in a bit for looking for something for ages. I was really confused with the level setup that I was going back and forth into the same places that I been too. Has some usually good graphics on. The boss fights can be long and boring because you need to hit them when they rage to lose they life.
Summary: Obtained this as follow on to Legend and am not disappointed. Legend has some more interesting aspects but is too short. Anniversary lacks the variety of Legend but makes up for it in the length of the game. If you like Legend then buy this.
Summary: The one thing to watch out for with Tombraider games is eventually when you have done say 10% of game,you come to a challenge which destroys you mentally.I'm stuck at killing this prehistoric monster,and its a shame there is no bypass option for people that just cannot get past that part.
Summary: This game is a must buy. If you have previously played Tomb Raider 1, 2, 3 or any of them, this is a new look on Tomb Raider 1. It includes your favourite BOSS Fights such as the T-Rex and Natla and it has Lara's home..... with a new twist on it. The graphics are not something to look at. They're not ultra amazing, I mean this was in 2007, but it IS on PS2. (Not the HD Console of the year) but they are playable and rather enjoyable.
Summary: There's an interesting story regarding the development of Tomb Raider Anniversary, a remake of the 1996 PSone game, Tomb Raider. In 2006 the game was originally gonna be developed by Core Design who made the PSone Tomb Raiders, suggesting that Eidos were prepared to give Core another chance after the disastrous Angel Of Darkness game. Then the project was cancelled.
All you love about Tomb Raider but with better graphics

Summary: After the utter dissapointment of the newest PS3 Tomb Raider offering (Legend) I decided to buy this game again on the PS2 console. Although still not as good as the original in gameplay (or perhaps I'm being sentimental!), the graphics are about as good as they get without being a PS3 and the story, locations etc are pretty much the same as the original Tomb Raider game, but with enough difference to keep it interesting.
Excerpt: "...the immediate story - gave lara more feeling, more face expressions, to relate to a character you need to understand them, so they have definately improved that. Oh... I love how the Anniversary was TERRIFYING! Monsters... AH where did he come from!! They jump out from everywhere - you can be cowardly, be cautious, and look carefully before you move, but you still can't see them. People with a nervous disposition should be careful! It is all in ...
