Sora96's The Tomb Raider Trilogy Review

Recommended Posts

The Tomb Raider Trilogy is a collection consisting of Tomb Raider: Legend, Tomb Raider: Anniversary and Tomb Raider: Underworld, released exclusively on PlayStation 3 in 2011. The games were originally developed by Crystal Dynamics, in association with Buzz Monkey Software and Nixxes Software BV, and were ported to the PS3 by Buzz Monkey Software.
The collection includes the PlayStation 2 versions of Legend and Anniversary remastered in high definition plus Underworld, which was previously released on the PS3 in 2008, all on one Blu-ray Disc.
Also included is plenty of trophies with a platinum trophy for each game, bonus Lara Croft and Viking Thrall avatars for use in the now terminated PlayStation Home, a theme pack for the XrossMediaBar, developer diaries for all 3 games and trailers for the previously released Lara Croft & The Guardian of Light.
Legend is a quality game however it hasn't aged that well in the past nine years. The faces look very awkward at times and there is texture/graphic issues galore. The platforming isn't perfect either. And the way the game blocks off certain areas just looks strange and ugly.
The game is pretty easy and has multiple difficulties including a time trial mode and plenty of collectables. Croft Manor also returns with puzzles and more collectables.
Voice acting is fine and so is music and sound effects. However sometimes the voice acting is a little hard to hear over music & sound effects.
You can also re-watch the cinematics and view character profiles, object models and more.
There's also pistol upgrades, different outfits and cheats.
The story is okay, nothing as epic as the reboot though. The game is quite short, only took me about eight hours.
Aiming can also be a little off and the puzzles are the same boring stuff.
It's a decent game that's worth a playthrough.
After playing some of Anniversary and Underworld I'm let down. The platforming is shocking in Anniversary and both are outdated in terms of gameplay and graphics. The remasters appear to do the game's justice but I've never played the originals.
If you like the classics you should be fine playing these but they are just too outdated for me personally.
