The Tomb Raider franchise has been around for a long time. Since 1996, Lara Croft has been exploring dangerous ruins, collecting ancient relics, and even slaying the occasional dinosaur. Now the famous explorer’s latest adventures have been compiled onto one BluRay disc for gamers to enjoy. The Tomb Raider Trilogy (for PS3) features Tomb Raider: Legend, Tomb Raider: Anniversary, and Tomb Raider: Underworld, plus some pretty basic extras. It’s not the strongest compilation, but it’s certainly a good package for gamers who want to catch up on the series and anyone who wants to take advantage of trophy support for the first two titles.
Tomb Raider: Legend (originally released in 2006) is the first game on the disc, and it’s really starting to show its age. Though the game is definitely playable and still fun, the controls are wonky, Lara’s movements are clunky, and the camera is abysmal. Players can overlook the sub-par controls and animations, but when a game requires such precise platforming and plenty of moving around to solve puzzles, an erratic camera is a major setback. While exploring caves and temples, Lara needs to frequently hang from ledges and jump to platforms behind her, and when you can’t really see what’s behind Lara, you’re in store for some frustration.
