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: 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?
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.
Conclusion: What's great about this game is it's a real return to the Tomb Raider roots, before Lara became a sex symbol and started killing museum security guards. Yes the story may be done, but you'll still find appreciation for this game. It's a return to isolated adventure, jumping around and solving puzzles. Combat is there but it's not going to consume most of your game time.
Conclusion: Tomb Raider: Anniversary on Wii is a solid game marred by a frustrating combination of the problems from the PS2 version and all new problems due to the Wii control method. The added functionality that actually works can't make up for the fact that most of it doesn't. One for Tomb Raider completists only.
