Summary: This game is a loose remake of the original. The biggest improvement is the control and the boss-battles (which were a blast). The Wii controls are fantastic. I've read a few people were having troubles with them, but I thought they were simple, and I don't play many video games. For me, it made the experience more involving. This is definitely the definitive version of the game, as it was advertised. (I played a portion of the game on PC before buying this Wii version.
Summary: Some game play is difficult even on the easy level. My 13 year old is really good at games, but there was one part she was getting so frustrated, she had to keep doing it over and over and over, in the gym area where you have to jump back to get on the rock, she finally did it, but it was really hard. If you look on you tube it helps when you get really stuck. Game is pretty fun, but be warned that some parts are really difficult.
Summary: I've always been a big fan of the Tomb Raider games so I was excited when this one came out for the Wii. The game is fun but it does get a bit difficult in some areas of the game causing me to have to run to the computer and look up a walkthrough to help me get through it. I'm going to have to agree with a few of the other reviews that said the control was bad.

Summary: As an early adopter of games on computers who still remembers things like DOS4GW, OpenGL and game ports on motherboards, this game really brings back some fond memories of 3D goodness back in the day. The new added controls specific to the Wiimotes is a nice-to-have feature that adds a little to the basic solid gameplay that built this franchise up from the ground with the first Tomb Raider. I got this on sale, but in my opinion it's worth the [...
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 got this game a month ago. At first, I could not get the hang of the controls for the finer moves. After doing the Croft Manor sections - which is by far the hardest "practice" section of any TR I've played - I got the wiimote to work okay. I love the scenes and interactiveness - the puzzles and bonus items are always a great time investing challenge. I just wish the camera angle would not be so weird - I constantly need to reset it the whe "c" button. Practice.
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 purchased this for my younger brother who is a serious gamer (at only 11). He said this game was a little complicated to get the hang of and learn but overall he would recommend this game. It's great if it got this review from him, believe me.
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)!!!
