#29 How Tomb Raider: Anniversary Took Lara Croft Back to Basics
Nov 23, 2020 Episode 29
Andy Johnson

Part two of a three-part series on the Tomb Raider: Legend trilogy (2006 - 2008).

Tomb Raider: Anniversary represents a unique fusion of two eras of the Tomb Raider series. While preserving some of the smoothness and new mechanics of Legend, it also brings back the solitary, atmospheric adventuring and strong emphasis on puzzles from the 1996 original. The result is a game which is strikingly different to the one that preceded it and which has more of a niche audience - but which also shows just far the Tomb Raider series had come in its first decade.
