Summary: As is often the case with Wii games, the controls are the issue with Tomb Raider Anniversary. The angles are off so that you are constantly having to reset the camera viewpoint which results in missed jumps, grabs, etc. The story is the same basic quest plot that all the Tomb Raider games have.
The camera controls and aiming system are ruining this game for me.

Summary: I'm really getting frustrated with the camera controls in this game. They absolutely will not do what you want them to do. They are too loose, and the angles you can get are very limited. The camera pivots around Lara, and there is no first-person view to look at your surroundings.
Summary: Plain and simply...it's difficult. No one wants a game that's tooooo easy but no one want's a game that's frustrating. -First the camera angles are not that good. The camera is beyond dynamic. They continuously move, so that when you're trying to climb or jump back or up she jumps the wrong way.
Summary: An "interactive" Tomb Raider? Well, sounds great! Sign me up! The end results of Eidos and Crystal Dynamics first foray with their revived Tomb Raider series certainly showe promise, but falls too short to be a classic.
Excerpt: I was never a massive fan of the Tom Raider games but did have and play Tomb Raider 2 when I was about 13 or so like most of my friends around that time. I was interested to find Tomb Raider Anniversary on the Nintendo Wii on offer in my local Currys store for £9.99 and so decided to give it a go as...
Excerpt: I bought this game because I had one tomb raider game before on the PS2 and I really enjoyed playing it. This game differs from the others immediately as on the WII the controls work a bit differently.
Summary: The game scenario is great as always with LC but the graphics quality on the wii sucks. The controls are excellent and it does differ slightly from the PC version but the nunchuck is VERY difficult to use precisely and can be frustrating when lining up jumps.
Summary: Being a loyal TR fan I thought this would be a nice addition to my Wii. Graphics are fantastic but the nunchuk movements are very tricky which can lead to boredom when trying to get through levels.
