Tomb Raider Anniversary

Excerpt: It is hard to believe that Tomb Raider is ten years old (editor: as a video game franchise). Lara Croft has improved her attire a little bit, but she still has a long way to go. Eidos has still not taught her the lessons about modesty. Plenty of puzzles can be found in this video game, along with gunning down bats, dogs, bears, dinosaurs, wolves, and other such things. The player can let Lara go wild with those two hand guns.
Summary: Using an enhanced 'Tomb Raider: Legend' game engine, the graphics, technology and physics bring Lara's adventure and pursuit of a mystical artifact known only as the Scion right up to today’s technology standards and will offer gamers a completely new gameplay experience.
Excerpt: Ahhhhhhhhhhh Lara Croft, she’s been around for years. I remember the first time I fired up the first Tomb Raider on my original Playstation 10 years ago. It brought adventure gaming into the realm of 3D polygons. Well over the years there have been many sequels, the last one being Tomb Raider: Legend, but with each sequel came recycled gameplay and the series started to falter.
Will this be an anniversary for Lara Croft to Remember?

Conclusion: It was a decade ago when the very first Tomb Raider won my heart and I'm looking forward to seeing the Anniversary addition. With Tomb Raider's enhanced graphics, audio, and a non-linear experience, I know I'll be excited all over again. Though it's released only on the Playstation 2, PSP, and PC, I'm sure there's a method to Crystal Dynamic's madness.
Excerpt: Tomb Raider: Anniversary is a remake of the original game that made such a splash ten years ago, meaning Lara's oldest and newest adventure is very different to the action-packed title more recent fans might be expecting. On PS2 it was tomb raiding in its purest form, but on the Wii, where poor camera control can ruin an otherwise great game, is Lara's latest still worth exploring?
Summary: Over the course of the year, Crystal Dynamics' Tomb Raider: Anniversary--a healthy remake of the original Tomb Raider--has been popping up on all sorts of different consoles. Now, after a few months of fiddling on the developer's behalf, it has arrived on the Wii. The big difference between this and the previous versions of Anniversary lies in the motion controls.
Pros: Strikes a balance between homage and new, exciting content, Satisfying acrobatic action adventure gameplay, Lara looks great and moves effortlessly, New minigames are a fun little addition
Cons: Camera controls can be difficult, New combat system feels clunky on the Wii, Minor but noticeable visual bugs
Excerpt: TombRaider retrace les aventures de Lara Croft au moment où elle vient d'être engagée par un puissant syndicat pour retrouver un objet mystique connu comme le Scion. Mais lorsqu'elle découvre qu'elle n'est qu'un pion, victime d'une machination à plus grande échelle, Lara décide de prendre les...
