I've first played Anniversary before TR1, I wonder how many other people have done this instead of the other way around. I remember having to rely on walkthroughs to get all the artifacts and relics... those were the days.

I also love how dramatic all the villains were in this game. Happy 15th Anniversary to Anniversary

Happy anniversary to probably the most underrated game in the series. As a kid I thought it wasn't as cool as Legend, but over time I've grown to truly appreciate Anniversary for its own benefits.

Same here. It was the third TR game I got to play.

By far my favorite of Crystals games!

I find it funny to hear how everyone here calls this game underrated or that they liked it despite the “hate” when it was actually a well regarded reimagining in the gaming community when it came out, and still is outside the forum.

Definitely, which is one of the many examples of how Classic / Core purists are in no way shape or form representative of the entire fandom despite some of them thinking they are.

When I called it underrated I meant in the context of the forums alone.

Yeah I’ve never regarded Anniversary as a “hated” game even when it’s criticised as a bad remake. It’s not even a remake. It’s a reimagining as the devs have said since 2007. It brilliantly fit itself in to the modern era of TR, and the way Lara felt like a ‘pre Legend Lara’ personality, was really done well.

Second for me after Legend. I was already familiar with some of the classic games but that was because I watched a friend play them
