In my honest opinion this is perhaps THE best example of a 'proper' next generation game.
Before Tomb Raider there was nothing (to my knowlegde) that came before that had taken the adventure genre to an entirely new level. Upgrading from a Sega Megadrive, playing Tomb Raider back in 1996 was a giant leap in my gaming experience.
You'll never forget the first time the huge T-Rex comes stomping out of the shadows. One particular scene that always sticks with me is one level where you find yourself climbing what seems to be a huge cliff only for the camera to pan back to find ourself coming out of the enterence of a giant Sphinx! :O)
The music also is superb which adds to the tension and mystery of your surroundings.
The sound effects where quite 'weak' on the Sega Saturn.
The Bottom Line
An amazing game from start to finish...although graphically it has aged quite alot.
