I just bought the TR collection, and have realised that there are tons and tons and tons of mistakes on the box.

The front cover is fine, and looks professional in some way. And so is the back. However the three DVD's inside the box say:

1) On the side panel

The tomb raider collection Featuring Lara Croft/ Adventures of Lara Croft

The tomb raider collection Adventures of Lara Croft/ The last revelation

The tomb raider collection Chronicles/ The angel of Darkness

So they got the first DVD wrong.


2) On the back of the first DVD

'Lara Croft have been engaged to find the pieces of an ancient artefact...'

Tomb Raider 2 Golden Mask

'Lara return to find the dagger of Xian which carries the power of the dragon in itself. Lara set off to the boasted Chinese wall. the wonderful Venetia ...

On 2nd DVD

TR 3 is alright

TR 4 the last revalation

'Lara return to her roots and set off...

3rd DVD

TR5- After Her Live burial her friends collect themselves at... The memories of morning bring your to the old rome, to an island in the old Ireland...

Tr6 - Lara Croft is back and has a hard time if it: has the police force behind herself and touches involved in a dark plot...

Ok, is it Eidos who created this compilation, because every box has different logos, two have Core Design, the front box only has Eidos. Who created this compilation and why is it laughably unproffesional for something i paid Ł14 for?

Feel free to close this if it has not relevance (or move it)

also, is there any difference between the greatest raids and the TR collection? I was wondering if i should hve gone for that (less tr5 and 6)?

Sounds like they google translated it into French and then back into English. And apparently the police touch you.

Woah, I kinda wanted to get that (even though I already have all the TR games on PC already XD), but this has put me off.

I have this too. I just laughed at it all. :p It was like it was all written and done by a 3 year old. :vlol:
Whoever done it should be ashamed of themselves. :p

is it any different to the greatest raids though? :)

It also says "the Laura Croft Tomb Raider Collection" at the side of the box! :yah:

''The Greatest Raids'' is much more professionally done and works with Windows Vista, which I'm sure ''The Collection'' doesn't.
But unless you're a collector like me, I don't see the point of getting really.

I don't even understand how Eidos could allow such a thing to be released. Don't get me wrong, I love ''The Collection'', but it just looks SO fan-made.

You could always check out my photo album of my collection, but since it'snot that detailed, you won't really be able to see the mistakes. :o

yes i may swap it for the greatest raids if it more geared up proffesionaly, i cant garente that the collectors CD's are bug free either.

Just a question on the greateest raids, (it sounds stupid i know and a bit picky) but if its all on one DVD, do you choose which TR you want to install in the exe. program, or do you have to open up the game files on 'my computer' and do it there

i also forgot to mention that the TR1 box is incredibly pixalated

I don't know since I've never actually played ''The Greatest Raids'', but i presume that is what happens. :o

Keep in mind, though, that ''The Greatest Raids'' does not include TR 5 and AoD, so you should think twice before swapping them.

Yeh i wasnt really a fan of AOD, so its something i can live withour.

Lookin at your collection, u have greatest raids. Could you do me a massive favour and open it up and tell me how you would install the individual games? If you can choose to install them via an installation program or if you have to go into my computer and install them all seporately? :)

^^That's the cardboard box that you use to put the three cases in. I'm pretty sure it's one of the three cases that says ''Laura'' on the side.

My boxset has corrected the "Laura" to "Lara," but all other errors remain. Still a nice collection, though.

It can't be! I was really looking foward to it. :(

I've just discovered that my version differs to yours? It only has Dutch and French info... :confused:

And by the way, it's not a big deal but I've found out they sometimes don't use Roman numerals:
Tomb Raider 2 Golden Mask
Tomb Raider 3 Adventrues of Lara Croft
Tomb Raider IV The Last Revelation
Tomb Raider V Chronicles
Tomb Raider V The Angel of Darkness

Note there's another mistake at the last one, it has to be VI! :D

da tomb raider!
