9.0Fantastic

- All I will say is this; If this list was comprised of my Top 10 Video Game soundtracks of all time, this game will win. All the time. Every time. No question. End of story. Bye bye. - The music is godly, but the graphics are most definitely not. Lara's boobs more like triangles that could poke your eye out if you got too close, and Lara's ponytail isn't even visible in-game...but still shows up in cutscenes? The f**k? Still, it looks great for it's time at the very least. - I love playing this game from beginning to end. Thanks to patches for the PC version, I'm even able to collect all the secrets in one sitting and feel accomplished about doing so for once. I'd say it's still got it!

8.5Fantastic

Tomb Raider é um jogo de plataforma e exploração que é ambientado em cenários naturais e templos antigos, que dá ao jogador uma sensação de isolamento bem grande. Visualmente o game é bem interessante e os designers fizeram ótimo uso das texturas para criar cenários naturais e templos bem arquitetados, embora algumas vezes tudo pareça meio abstrato. As texturas são bem pixeladas mas no geral é um jogo bonito de ver. Como o jogo é mais longo do que deveria ser, fica bem repetitivo e maçante perto das últimas fases, principalmente quando chega em Atlantis. Já a parte sonora merece só elogios: as músicas são memoráveis, apesar de poucas e de tocarem em momentos especiais, pois o som ambiente contribui para a atmosfera de isolamento do jogo.

10Classic!

The first & best Tomb Raider ever, an instant classic and a must own, the new tomb raiders can never compare to the early games of the series, took me years to complete at first (I was like only 4 or 5 when I first played it), I remember to this day the first time I played this I was stuck in the very first room for hours but yet I still love to play this even to this day.

The original that pretty much pioneered a genre in 3D. I prefer its first two sequels (and Anniversary) overall though, but I only consider it "less good" rather than having any particular issue with it. The earlier TR's controls get lots of bad rap now, but they namely suffer from a massive learning curve; once that is passed (no easy feat admittedly), they're actually more consistent and skill-based than all but a couple of entries in the genre today. Beyond that all the better earlier games have more interesting level design than most Action-Adventures today.

10Classic!

The game that launched Sony into SuperStardom & established Sony as the the "Hardcore's Choice" Console. Inspired after the movie Indiana Jones-Raiders of the Lost Ark & the Video-Game, Prince of Persia, Tomb Raider represents a Milestone in 3D Gaming & it's protagonist, Lara Croft, made Women Popular in Video-Games.Selling over 7 Million copies, TR1 was a Smash Hit, in UK especially where it topped the charts for a couple of weeks. This game has it all(except graphics):action, adventure, puzzles, atmospheric soundtrack &...cutscenes, a cinematic aproach, something uncommon in 1996.The remake resolved "the graphics problems" but on the other hand, washed away the atmosphere & sense of solitude provided by the original, "that magic to

Influential because: Adventure games have never been the same since.

4.5Average

Very sadly and with a lot of regret, I can say that this game has aged. It hasn't aged gracefully, like Super Mario Bros' still-fun-to-play mechanics, or even harshly but with merit, like Metal Gear Solid's clunky control system compared with its still very well-executed story. Everything in Tomb Raider has aged, from combat to mechanics to the simple presentation of the game. What served as a foundation for other games - Uncharted and Prince of Persia being the forerunners - has instead been cast irrelevant by them. The power of Tomb Raider, in the day, came from its sex appeal and how it was a fun simulation of Indiana Jones. It no longer brings anything to the table, and the roots of what was left are difficult to play. RIP Lara.
