The female equivalent of Indiana Jones returns for a special encore performance in this enhanced update of 1996's Tomb Raider, which made Lara Croft a household name and the object of affection for prepubescent boys across the globe. To commemorate Croft's ten-plus years as an influential video game heroine, this anniversary edition of Tomb Raider features all of the levels, enemies, and puzzles from the award-winning original, but with the advanced graphics engine introduced in 2006's Tomb Raider: Legend.
Anniversary follows Lara through the beginning of her relationship with archeology, and players begin by leading a little Lara through her first tomb raiding adventure. The play mechanics have also changed to a degree, and players must navigate the lovely Lara throughout the exotic locales of Peru, Greece, Egypt, and Atlantis with the Wii Remote and Nunchuk. As Lara uses her grappling hook used to swing from one precarious ledge to the other, players must secure her hold on each ledge by wiggling the nunchuck and pressing on the D-pad. The remote is used to direct Lara's flashlight beam, select objects, and to fire upon enemies including wolves, crocodiles, and the occasional T-Rex. ~ Gracie Leach, All Game Guide
