If you, like me, cooled to Tomb Raider at around the turn of the century, when each consecutive game seemed to contain less and less new ideas, then 2007’s Anniversary is your way back in. The pop culture analysts have long since moved on to fresher territory and Lara is back to doing what she does best: navigating giant, three-dimensional puzzle blocks cleverly disguised as beautiful exotic ruins. In this respect, TR is better than ever. The controls are also hugely improved, although the combat is still fairly dull, the camera still problematic and the occasional section infuriatingly fiddly.
