I liked the plot and cinematic feel to Anniversary, and the characters were great too. Natla and Pierre brought their own villainy charm which kept things interesting. Larson was meh. Levels like The Coliseum or Temple of Khamoon had their own scenic beauty. Obelisk of Khamoon was perhaps the most challanging of all levels if you aimed to collect all the artifacts. I agree with op in the first post that Lara in cotton top is something the devs got right while maintaining a balance of keeping faithful to the classic games and doing their own thing.

You can get the 3rd & 4th artifacts in Obelisk of Khamoon without activating the blades.

Anniversary's puzzle , boss fight and trap design is one of the best of the franchise , St-Francis folly and the Egypt levels are masterpieces , and the game had great sound effects .

Nice thread
Anniversary is and will always be a beautiful reimagining and a blast to play.

Anniversary Pierre >>>>> Classic Pierre.

I like that shaved head with the goatee/stache look.

Ah yes that cursed switch. Thankfully the last time I replayed Anniversary I managed to avoid it.

I have a lot of fun playing TRA, just finished a replay last week. The soundtrack is really good, fun and memorable in places, such as the Egypt theme. I really appreciate some of the expanded puzzle rooms. It has its flaws such as endless corridors (i), but overall it is a very enjoyable game and as a remake/reimagining of TR1, imo, there's enough nostalgia to appreciate, while feeling fresh.

Itís such an iconic masterpiece that a KPOP group sampled it for their song.
