This is by far a fantastic trip back in time and beyon, you haters hate all you want I have played TR1-3 then beat Anniversary and run through most of Underworld and Anniversary is a beutifully crafted re-make with plenty of extras! I Gave this game a solid review and here is the link, I won't allow any negatives on Square Softs take on Tomb Raider 1, they gave the original new life!

Sometimes when a great game is remade it can be done in the wrong way or in the most undeserving way, I myself hate HD texture remakes of classic games. Come on guys more content would be nice! Add to the great game in a more positive way, the HD touches took a few minutes in Photoshop.. Grrrr, well enough bashing there, lets move on.
One game that never fell down that road was this very game I am praising today, this has to be the finest game to be taken then lovingly re-remade and is one of my most beloved adventure games of all time, especialy to Tomb Raider fans out there! Yes were here!
Square Enix did an impossible feat here and put in so much love to the fans of the Tomb Raider series which was struggling to meet gamers needs. Tomb Raider games befor Anniversary were just getting too hard and clumbsy as they progressed past Tomb Raider 3 upwards! It has been sad to read this amazing outing recreated by Square and Crystal Dynamics became the least selling title of the whole Tomb Raider series on release.
