Mastertronic has today announced the release of three new compilation sets- Tomb Raider: The Greatest Raids and Thief – The Complete Collection from Eidos Interactive and Commandos Complete, bringing together your favourite classics in one exciting package.

Discover why Lara Croft is one of the most iconic videogame characters of all time in this collection of Lara’s first four adventures. From the Great Wall of China to the rooftops of London, from the icy wastes of the Antarctic to the sweltering Indian jungle, the action never lets up for a moment.

Tomb Raider, Tomb Raider II, Tomb Raider III and Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation offer a masterful balance of exploration, adventure and action, all set in an immensely colourful, exotic 3D world.

Awarded 9.2/10 by Gamespot UK for the first edition, the following titles in the series do not fall far behind, making this blockbuster collection a snip at a retail price of 19.99. So experience the games that started a cult following and join Lara on the journey of a lifetime, if you can keep up with her.

"Mastertronic have long been known for bringing the very best value titles to market", commented Sales Director James Cato, "but this time, we have excelled ourselves. The classic compilations that we are showcasing are some of our strongest ever titles, and quite simply the best value products out on the market today – something that we’re exceptionally excited about."

However, the package containing TR1-6 is still cheaper than that... Does this particular release contain something extra? (Such as tools to get the games properly working on newer systems?)

Thanks for sharing Justin.

This leaves me with one question though. Does this mean we can play TR1 under vista without that program you have to pay for?

oh, PC, and UK. hopefully an XBOX 360 US release.

It's free delivery for UK only, but you can ship it for the rest of Europe and the US (for a price of course).

For PC? Darnit.. I was hoping 360 ports.. Puh-lease EIDOS do it! :p

I don't want to bother getting them for PSP.. :(

Cool, but I already have them and to be honest... there is about enough of compilations of the computer games. I'd rather want a Tomb Raider Legend/Anniversary/Underworld compilation for the PlayStation 3. That would be fantastic!

Cool! :tmb: Might pick it up along with the exclusive PC levels when I get my new laptop for Christmas.

So will TR1 install smoothly? And does it have the Gold levels included?

Encore

This lives up to it's title of The Greatest Raids. These are the only TR games I'd give a full 10/10 rating. Will definitely be buying this at some point, even if I do have the 1-6 boxset, plus various other releases. I'm curious to know what the packaging will be like (other than the front cover, obviously.)

If only they can release it for the 360! Oh God please!

Edit:

Which TR 1-6 boxset are you talking about? Can you give me a link please?

:)

I like the Amazon description for this new upcoming set:

DISCOVER THE GAMES THAT CREATED A LEGEND!

Before the movies, the comic books, the animated TV series and the rollercoasters, there were the games that started it all.

Thaaaaaaank you!

One more question: does it come with the FMV sequences and everything?

drakl0r
10-09-09, 19:38
That's great! :D

Agree with Encore, those who have only played TR since Legend should try the classics :D

They're good! :tmb:

But I wonder why Chronicles and AOD is not included though...

Yes. Unfinished Business is also included.

Yes. Unfinished Business is also included.

Awesome! :tmb:

I found it on eBay for US $33.72 I think that's pretty good for 6 whole games! :)

Cool! :tmb:

But I don't need another TR collection. :p

Yes. It's absolutely needed for those who haven't got the first games.

If I see this I am definatly picking it up tomb raider 1 2 3 4 for 20 :jmp: you cant find them anywere these days and to play the original tomb raider again would be a dream.

10-09-09, 20:11
I do think it's a bit of a cash in tbh.

I may get it though, my games are getting dusty, and if this has all the sound files working then maybe...

KIKO
10-09-09, 20:13
I'll be sure not to miss this since TR2 and TR1 are nowhere to be found in a games shop.

da tomb raider!
10-09-09, 20:20
Cool. It's good to see there's still interest in the old Tomb Raider games. I have to say, though, it'd make more sense if it included Tomb Raider Chronicles, too...

scion05
10-09-09, 20:27
Yeah it would! I'd sooner have TRC than have TR4 lol.

I think it's because the Chronicle reviews were pretty iffy so it can't be counted as a "Greatest Raid".

I saw this in the shops a few days back, squeed in the middle of GAME and then promptly told my friend that was 'one part of my Christmas' from him.

You can also find it on eBay, cheaper I guess

1-5 would've been nicer. :o That's all classic. :tmb: I wouldn't include AOD since it's really incomplete... :p
