Time has not been kind to the first Tomb Raider game, but its influence on similar games in the years to come cannot be understated.
Tomb raider to tomb raider: chronicles are much better TR games than the new ones
I agree, minus the reboot which was fantastic. Part two and 3 lost me. That Trinity story line was stupid
Maybe not but as a whole they're better than the new trilogy.
Well least they are actual Tomb Raider games unlike the new trilogy.
Remake the older games. With dame character model. Show what the series can be again
I would love that too. Anniversary is amazing if you haven't played it.
It doesn't look good by todays standards but it's still a fun game to play. I prefer those TR games to the new ones any day of the week. I still play them from time to time but I would welcome a remake like Crash Bandicoot and Spyro got. That would be a dream come true and todays kids would experience the amazing games that TR used to be.
TR annyversary is a remake of the original.
Oh no. That is not what I mean. They changed way too much with anniversary to a point where you can't even recognize the game as a remake of the original. They also cut a lot of levels out or shortened them. What I mean by remake is a 1:1 remake that changes nothing other than graphics and perhaps, physics in the game.
The grid based controls were wonky even back then. But that sense of discovery and isolation felt amazing.
Imo TR1 atmosphere is still one of the best in gaming. The sense of loneliness the game provides is pretty much unmatched in this industry.
TR1 is one of pillars of 3D gaming alongside the likes of Mario 64 and a pioneer of the action adventure genre that set a template that is followed even today. Tomb Raider is one of the most influential games of all time.
If they remade tomb raider the last Revelation I would die. That's my fave entry. She's actually in tombs the majority of the game in Egypt. It's the most authentic tomb raider experience of the whole series. When she's climbing that huge pyramid damn! I loved the reboot, but Rise and shadow just got so off track.
Seriously, it`s time to bring back remasters of the original Eidos Core Tomb Raiders. Even with outdated graphics and tank-contol, I take them any day over the re-boots!
Compared to the newer entries which are lame Uncharted Clones the classics and the 360 one’s have aged like fine wine.
