Summary: The Wii doesn't have too many games for it yet, and that's why I bought this. I remember playing the first Tomb Raider game, and it felt like I was trying to get a cow to do acrobatics. I was so happy that this version has controls that are much easier to use. Lara is easy to use, and easy to move. There are a few things wrong with the controls though. The camera is not very friendly when you are in a hurry.
I'm surprised. Like a fine wine, this game aged well.

Summary: I purchased this game for my girlfriend (along with Tomb Raider Legend for the Game Cube) because she really likes the Tomb Raider games, but I did not expect to play the game much at all. I have never been a huge Tomb Raider fan. On the original game I never progressed farther than half of the first level and watched my friends beat the rest of the game. I wanted to play more of the original game, but the controls really annoyed me.
Summary: I don't even remember playing any of the old Tomb Raider games. Either I was busy playing others or the series never appealed to me so what made me want to pick up Tomb Raider Anniversary I'm not sure. Either it was a special/interview that I saw on TV, whether there was just nothing else at the store or just genuine curiousity, I picked it up and while I wouldn't say I became a fan of the series as a whole, I kind of liked the game even though there's certain aspects to...
Summary: I remember playing this a bit back on the first PS. I like the puzzles in this one. So far I've gotten around, no problem, controls are fairly good. They're very similar to Prince of Persia (which I own, so I already had practice leaping and jumping and swinging on poles, etc w/ the Wiimote). Graphics are so so (but then again it IS a Wii)!!!
Excerpt: "...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 it's cheaper than most action games on the Wii. I'd read a couple of reviews beforehand stating it was a decent enough game with some great challenges. Having not played the very first Tomb Raider ...
Summary: This game is as good as everyone here says! One of the best games I have played. Once you have mastered the moves its great. We have given it 4 stars not 5 only because we thought we would try the training level first - Croft Manor, and got very frustrated, as considering it is supposed to be training, there were no instructions about what buttons do what, we had to keep refering to the manual.
Summary: A very enjoyable remake of the orignal tomb raider, which manages to significantly update the original tomb raider while still retaining the charm of the original. The Wii controls are very well thought out, and the rock climbing in particular is great fun. Sadly, the animals are just as dumb as they were in the original game. It is not uncommon to see them getting stuck in doorways, or standing still while repeating their "run" animation.
