It’s odd, but I seem to start new games on Sunday evenings more often than at any other time. So today, in this strange tradition, I started Tomb Raider Anniversary.
It has been a long time since I played the Saturn original, but it certainly is different. Of course, it has the Tomb Raider Legend engine behind it now, and the graphics are much improved, but so far it isn’t really all that familar. The grid-based areas are much less grid-based, and the initial snowy area seemed awfully short, but it could just be my mind playing tricks.
It’s good though. Not as good as Legend, but I’m enjoying it. I’ve managed to get about an hour in so far, past the first water puzzle and the giant door with two weights.
