Been looking around for some info on Tomb Raider 1 lately and finally managed to get a reward, a scan from the Official Sega Saturn Magazine #10 August 1996.



And from Electronic Gaming Monthly #82 May 1996



Would like to thank Retromags.com for all the scans


This one l scanned a while back, nothing really new in it.




Another one for the collection




An Italian review from Game Power #54 is available in this post

Larson is in Vicabamba, in the early version he followed Lara around like Pierre did in the later levels.

Here are some other Larson screens

Nice material, fine presentation (don't overlook the expansion available by holding the mouse over the lower right corner & clicking).
