Tomb Raider Anniversary marks a decade of Lara Croft. Itâ€™s not ten years to this day though – the first Tomb Raider was actually released way back in winter 1997 on the humble Sega Saturn. Reviews suggest that this celebration of Lara is more Legends than Angel of Darkness, with Edge dishing out a handsome 7 and both Eurogamer and The Official PlayStation 2 Magazine handing out a 9. Itâ€™s only Â£19.97 at Tesco too.
Thereâ€™s another game out from Eidos today, and a surprise one at that – urban crime sim 25 to Life. It was released in the US over two years and got really poor reviews, which would explain why itâ€™s only fifteen quid.
Over on 360 thereâ€™s Shadowrun – the first 360 game that letâ€™s you play against PC gamers, albeit only those with Windows Vista. Eurogamer and CVG are the only people to have reviewed it, and have both given it a 6. It might be a good idea to save your money for Forza 2 instead. Providing youâ€™re into your motors, of course.
Just two for DS this week – Meteos: Disney Magic, which is probably pretty good if sugary sweet, and Wario: Master of Disguise. Weâ€™ve played the Japanese version of the later and it isnâ€™t up to Wario’s ususal standards. The controls are a pain in the rear and it doesnâ€™t look much prettier than an average Game Boy Advance game. It’s doubtful that Nintendo will trust Suzaku with another one of their franchises again.
