Summa sumarum, nowy-stary Tomb Raider jest grą już nie rewolucyjną, ale z pewnością rewelacyjną. Zdecydowany lider gatunku action adventure łączący w sobie wyśmienitą oprawę z klimatem jakiego dostarczał pierwowzór. Tytułem tym nie zawiodą się ani starzy fani Lary ani też tym bardziej osoby które z pierwszym Tomb Raiderem nie miały styczności. Od siebie natomiast dodam jeszcze iż życzyłbym sobie aby kolejna odsłona serii utrzymana została w tej samej konwencji klimatyczno architektonicznej co Anniversary.

Damals wie heute macht Tomb Raider vor allem eines: Spass. Nicht umsonst werden die ersten beiden Teile von vielen Fans als die besten Spiele der Serie angesehen. Der erste Teil kann dabei vor allem durch das tolle Leveldesign und die dichte Atmosphäre überzeugen. Diese wurde im Remake grandios auf Sonys Kleinen übertragen. Die PSP kann zeigen, was grafisch in ihr steckt und steht der PS2-Version um nichts nach. Lediglich kleinere Steuerungsmankos aufgrund weniger Tasten nerven ab und an. Dennoch hat Crystal Dynamics auch für die PSP saubere Arbeit geleistet.

Dank subtiler Änderungen macht die Uroma der Action-Adventures auch heute noch eine gute Figur, auch in grafischer Hinsicht. Die prominente Protagonistin wurde detailliert in Szene gesetzt auch die Umgebung macht dank stimmungsvoller Beleuchtung und diverser Spiegelungen einen recht hübschen Eindruck. Einzig das häufige, leichte Ruckeln trübt den guten Gesamteindruck. Zum Glück leidet dadurch aber nie die Spielbarkeit. Insgesamt ist Tomb Raider: Anniversary also ein stimmungsvoller Ausflug in die Gründerzeit der 3D-Action-Adventures, garniert mit den Annehmlichkeiten der heutigen Zeit.

Eidos a fait le bon choix en confiant l'adaptation de Tomb Raider : Anniversary à Buzz Monkey qui a réalisé un très bon boulot à l'inverse de Crystal Dynamics sur Legend. Le contenu est identique aux versions Next Gen et PS2, la maniabilité est bonne et, oh miracle, les innombrables lenteurs du Tomb Raider Legend ont ici complètement disparu. Bref un jeu tout aussi intéressant sur PSP que sur les autres machines.

Overall though, this is a superb game that played well ten years ago, and with its new lick of paint and improved controls, still plays well today. Well worth picking up if you like your 3D adventure games, this is one of the all-time greats.

Met Tomb Raider: Anniversary hebben de makers een eerbetoon neergezet aan het origineel. Door de gehele game op de schop te nemen, heeft men bovendien de perfecte balans kunnen houden tussen vernieuwing en nostalgie. Daarbij komt ook nog eens dat de PSP-versie van de game praktisch niet onder doet voor de consoleversies. Enige minpunten terzijde, is deze game aan te bevelen voor iedereen.

Overall, this is a great retelling of the classic Tomb Raider game. It is a title that is well worth investing both time and money in. If you remember the original then you can visit an old friend. If you missed the boat first time around then here's a rare second chance to get on board. Tomb Raider lives or dies by the quality of its environments and puzzles. Anniversary hits all the right notes in this respect, and, even though you're essentially just going from one tomb to another, there is enough creativity and interest to stop things from ever becoming tired. The scale of the world you inhabit is nothing short of breath-taking. Combine this with the newly tactile Lara and her beautiful new moves and you have a recipe for success.

Tomb Raider: Anniversary is simply Tomb Raider I with the Legend engine. For many it will be a joyfull reunion with a legendary title, not only in its genre but also in the gaming industry. For the younger generation it's proof that games really were more fun back in the days. The devs have changed just enough in the game to make sure you're not feeling ripped off and despite the limitations of the PSP and the UMD-medium they succeed to recreate a large vivid and mysterious world. An occasional drop of the frame rate and a camera with its own will shouldn't stop you from giving this game a chance. Meanwhile the replay value of the title is also high thanks to a lot of things and secret locations that can be explored, as well as a ton of unlockables that are present. Have fun exploring!

I' m sure I'm just opening up old wounds for those who thought I was too hard on the PS2 version of this game, but people need to step back and see that I'm saying Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Anniversary is a good game despite any of my gripes. The gameplay is fun and challenging, it looks pretty on the PSP's widescreen at times, and you're getting all the costumes changes, relics and Croft Manor exploits that were seen on the PS2. If you're looking for a solid adventure game, this fits the bill.

Tomb Raider: Legend did a lot to make Lara Croft feel relevant again, and Tomb Raider: Anniversary is another step in the right direction. The acrobatic action is consistently exciting and challenging throughout. Thus, despite being a remake, the experience feels new and fresh. This is the best Tomb Raider game in years, and for the first time in a long time, that actually means something.

In the end, Anniversary pairs the old with the new well, creating a good game with just enough issues to hold it back from being truly great. The camera is far too unwieldy at times and the enemies are hardly worrisome. However, what made the original so fun, the actual tomb-crawling, is only enhanced in this version. Those who have played the PS2 version should know that you are going to be playing a direct port. PSP adventurers, however, should take heart for that very same reason. Anniversary is not perfect, but it's an amusing diversion, especially on an anemic system like the PSP. Even with its flaws, Anniversary still comes together well enough to warrant a play by those looking for their adventure fix on the PSP.

I’ve talked to countless gamers, and have never met a hardcore fan of the Tomb Raider series. It gained a great deal of fame thanks to the cover girl and the films, but I feel it never really had the gameplay to back up the popularity. Anniversary, if nothing else, is an effective reminder of this.

Cette version PSP plus tardive souffre bien évidemment d'inévitables concessions techniques par rapport à ses cousines, mais s'en sort tout à fait honorablement en l'occurrence malgré des problèmes de caméra un peu gênants. Ceux qui n'auraient pas l'occasion de goûter à l'aventure sur les autres plates-formes seront sans doute ravis de découvrir cette quête surprenante, complexe et accrocheuse.

Tomb Raider: Anniversary is a cool pick-up for anyone wanting to relive one of gaming's more pivotal releases. While it's a solid enough game, once the feelings of nostalgia wane, you may feel a bit restricted by the game's linearity and the sometimes difficult camera. The lack of any multiplayer options is also a negative. If you can look past those issues, though, you'll be able to experience both the past and the present of the franchise and see why Lara Croft and the Tomb Raider name have been around for so long.
