I am a little surprised that they're not going for the full spectrum of platforms that were covered by Tomb Raider: Legend (e.g. XBOX, XBOX 360, GameCube) but on the other hand, it is nice to see them taking the Anniversary edition back to the series' roots on the PC and PlayStation. As a side note, I know that many people dislike the PSP for the number of ports it receives from the PS2, but at times like this I think it's a great thing. It allows the PSP access to one of the greatest game libraries of all time.
Eidos shipping Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Anniversary to North American stores on June 5 for PlayStation 2, PC.
Forgetting an anniversary is relationship suicide, but when that anniversary involves a woman packing some serious heat, it could turn to excruciating homicide. Eidos wants gamers to take note (for their own protection, of course): the PC and PlayStation 2 editions of Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Anniversary have been dated for a June 5 release in North America.
The game is a remake of the original Tomb Raider, the first game to feature one of the industry's most recognizable icons, the buxom heroine Lara Croft. Anniversary is based on Lara's first adventure, but it's powered by the same engine used in 2006's Tomb Raider: Legend and features some new twists.
Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Anniversary is rated T for Teen. A PlayStation Portable version is also in the works but has not yet been given a release date. For more on the game, read GameSpot's hands-on preview.
Now if they'd only do a xbox 360 version I'd be a happy panda. Somwhow though I don't see it happaning.
I don't care, but thank you SOOOO much for that pic of Karima Adebibe :D What can I say, I'm a fan...
Seriously they got a new girl to model as Lara Croft? I mean thats like taking the likeness of anyone other than Patrick Stewart as prof x for any Xmen game ever since Xmen the movie came out.. Angelina now and forever is Lara Croft
Not again - the scourge of Lara returns to haunt PC gaming. All Bosom and no gameplay - purely created to satisfy its fan base that craves for more of her pixelated sexiness. Pathetic.
I didn't like the controls of the first Tomb Raider games. So if that has been updated along with the graphics, I might be investing in one last PS2 game.
Tomb Raider serious is the game which really made me get into the gaming universe so much today i have become a hardcore gamer games have changed and evolved so much in time but I still think that Tomb raider is one the best games ever produced by the gaming industry
The first two were great. I still have the first game for PSX1. Getting it for PSX2 is a must. The fact that it will not appear on PSX3 was the final reason to canccel my PSX3. No matter how corny peope think TR1 was. It was and still is one of the few games that threw around our perspective on gaming. These are the moments we cherish forever.
still have no idea why there isn't a 360 version of this game .... madness really ! Still , i'll pick it up on PC when it's £5
We (EU) get it on May 25th? Same day as Mario Strikers charged?? It's gonna be a good day for gaming! 8)
I have high hopes for this one. The original TR is the only one that I really loved. It conveyed a sense of desolation and lonely atmosphere. Hopefully the remake retains that. I didn't like being connected via headset to your crew on Legend. Though I still liked Legend, it just didn't feel as much like Tomb Raider with all the chatter.
ohhhhhhhhhh more LARA hotness, no seriously i hope it a bit better than Legend, i liked Legend but it was lacking in a few departments
For an Anniversary title they should have done a next gen version . I'd like to know what made them take that bussiness decision. Is not like they don't have the engine running already on 360.
Heh. Amusing--I do hope that blasted 'hop across the torch pillars to grab the lead bar while on a timer' puzzle is a bit easier this time around. That and the 'run around one side of the pit to hit one lever, then run around to the other side to the other lever, then run back to the middle before the timers run out' bit from the second game are my least favorite TR puzzles. :-/ Meanwhile...I'm even more amused that these companies are virtually ignoring the PS2, and cranking out more titles for PS2. Kinda says something...
wait soo... the game is gonna be released on June 5th? that is SOO stupid! first they said April, then they said May, now JUNE!?!??!!? ::screams:: why r they torturing us?????? =[
Yeah, I'm going to upgrade my pc before that day, and buy it as soon as possible since I enjoyed Legends and never played the first game on Playstation. With all the graphical details cranked up and anti lasing, it will look way better than the PS2 version. I wonder if it would support the Next Generation graphics like Legend does on PC...
