That's how they should have connected Legend and Anniversary and tied up the trilogy.
I dig this idea. It sounds so much more intriguing, although it makes sense that didn't happen given how CD gave little thought to a sequel at the time of Legend.

A+
I would’ve enjoyed that much better than what we got

Probably could’ve tied up the dumb lose end plot points of Qualopec and Tihocan as well

This really is a badass scene, I love Lara's personality so much in this. I have a hard time with Keeley's voice, but even so she did great. With another less soft and motherly sounding voice I'd be quaking

I adore this scene so much. Especially when she demands, with a disgusted tone:

- Get out of my sight

And Natla obeys like well trained dog

This is probably my favourite, purely for how extra as **** and unnecessary it is



I miss Lara doing crazy **** like that just because she could, show off to those bats lurking in the corner for no reason.

The mid-air/underwater roll was also an incredibly necessary move. Going back and playing TR1 after later games, it really feels stunted without the ability to do that.

The sprint in TR3 takes my vote. It was such a welcome addition, as opposed to jumping all the time along somewhat long hallways. I liked the beta version of it too, even if it looks a little more butch.

The swan dive is also an irreplaceable classic.

Tomb Raider 3 Crouching.

I liked it, you can actually use it to dodge gunfire sometimes (Though its wonky at times.) and the AI human enemies can do it too. (At least the Area 51 Pistol guards.)

Sounds simple, but the 180 degree roll by pressing O on the PS controller, makes for quick maneuvering and also handy for combat. I just love the control scheme so much, of course some responsiveness tweaking on turns would be great, but overall I just love it. That roll combined with a backflip especially, so magnificent to see the backflip to 180 turn!

The swan dive, absolutely. Diving from super high up never gets old (made better by rolling mid-air).

Honorable mentions to TR4's dash-roll and Chronicles' crawlspace dismount. Both entirely pointless, but cool!
