Der Lara-Corft-Kult treibt seltsame Blüten: Der Director's Cut des ersten Teils enthält so unentbehrliche Gimmiks wie ein Billig-Blubber-Mauspad. Am Spiel selbst gibt's jedoch nichts zu mäkeln - Tomb Raider 1 ist heute noch eines der besten Action-Adventures. Perfekt designte, riesige Levels und die überaus präzise Steuerung machen Laune. Die neuen Levels sind den Programmierern gut gelungen: Die riesengroßen Ägypten-Missionen bleiben durch geschickte Unterteilung in verschiedene Abschnitte übersichtlich. Die beiden Atlantis-Szenarios sind sogar echte Hämmer: Angriffslustige Gegner, klaffende Abgründe und Lavagruben sorgen ständig für Laras Ableben. Für Besitzer des Original Tomb Raider lohnt sich der Kauf allerdings kaum, zumal sie die neuen Levels von der Tomb-Raider-Homepage downloaden können.
The excellent gameplay of Tomb Raider Gold remains unchanged from its predecessor. The innovative controls are hindered only by the need to bring up the menu rings to switch weapons than hitting a shortcut key, which could result in disaster at points in the game. Tomb Raider Gold is a must for any that did not buy the original Tomb Raider. For those that own the original, however, they may want to pass on this game, even though there is a $10 rebate, and get Tomb Raiders 2 & 3.
