It's my 4th favourite. So I can think of lots that I like about it but also stuff that I dislike about it.

Hmm, TR1 is my second favorite, funny enough TR2 is my no. 1.
TR 1 was a great beginning for the series, and TR 2 imo is the improved version.

Tomb Raider 1 is my favorite game of the Eidos canon, so I have few complaints. That said:
-A very basic Lara's Home, especially compared to the third game.
-No mid-air somersault to change which way you're facing.
-Save for the final boss, the other bosses have no strategy to defeat and are just "run around and shoot them until they die".
-No ponytail in game play.
-No other outfits in the main levels than the default.
-Not being able to save anywhere, at least in the console versions.

But hey, they had to start somewhere. The main point is, every level in the first game is fun to play, which is more than I can say for the other Eidos TR games.

I played it for the first time last year being 30 years old and I liked pretty much everything, including the incosistencies.

Concerning ''Greece" levels, for example, ''Colosseum" should be in Rome or at least Italy but also "Palace Midas" should probably have been in what is now Turkey. A monastery named after St Francis would have been more likely to have existed in Italy too (or a Catholic majority country at least) etc.. Still the inconsitencies in a way made it more fun for me.

Modern games often take themselves too seriously and the end result is worse imho.

Hence how the term "interactive movies" was born lol.
