It's $5 for those wondering. Anyone know how the PC port compares to the console editions?

Hmm...I already own a copy for the 360 and PS2, and if I didn't, I'd presumably buy a real copy of this, not a DRMed up one...but for $5...

Every weekend steam always seems to take my money! Perhaps I should alert authorities? But it feels so good....

This was free to play on Gametap for like, a year.

Or maybe that was Legend. I don't know. They all blend together at this point.

I think I picked up the Wii version for <$10 a looong time ago. I figured the waggle and wii controls would make that version a bit unique.

Better than playing it on the PC...

I'll probably get it. I have the Wii version but I'd like to try the standard version without the wii controls.

Uh...no, it's not. The PC version has better controls (since they're the same as the 360 version), and of course looks and runs better.

Lame deal is lame.


Huh? The only lame thing about this is its Steam. But $5 for one of the best games of 2007 isn't exactly my definition of "lame".

Depends on whether you want to actually own it or not (though the PC version can be had for a similar price to the 360 one also), and to an extent what your PC setup is versus your 360 setup. Like if you've got a notebook (that's decent) you could play it on your HDTV, or portably, etc.

My PC is pretty up to date, so I could play it at max settings. I play my 360 on my PC monitor so I guess it might be better on PC for me. I tried Legend for PC and it crashed pretty often in certain spots, but had no problems with the 360 version. Is the PC version of Anniversary stable, without many bugs?

You know Steam should just start selling HDs with games already on it cause mine is already filling up. Come on $5 dollars??? How can you say no to that?

I love Tomb Raider and this is my favorite game of the bunch. Tight gameplay, awesome environments to explore, and many moments of nostalgia for those of us who played the original Tomb Raider on the PS1 way back when. I highly recommend this for Tomb Raider fans (and adventure fans in general). Just make sure you play with a Playstation to USB adapter ($4 shipped on ebay) or a 360 controller. Some of the moves can be hard to pull off on a mouse and keyboard ;)

So I saw the deal and thought "Thank god, finally a weekend where I won't be tempted" since I've never been a Tomb Raider fan and recent memory told me that there have been 1-2 good games in the series since they went sequel crazy. But curiosity got the better of me and my research determined that this was one of the 2 good games. So now I'm stuck, I can hardly refuse the $5 price tag, and if I were to play a game in the series, it would be this one. You did it again Steam...

Its not lame because you don't like it. Its 5$ for a good game, just not the game you want.

Tomb Raider Anniversary is a must have for fans of the original, highly recommended.

There have been three awesome games-the last three. There were years between the old Core games and the new Crystal Dynamics relaunch.

Every time there's a Tomb Raider related thread you get some people bashing them, and they apparently don't know that these aren't related to those old Core games that got thrown out every 5 seconds. These have all been easily among the best games of the year they've launched in, and then win plenty of awards.

better controls with what, a KB and mouse? Not everyone has a 360 controller, and for something I already bought. I'm not going to pick up this copy, then pick up the ps2 copy then get the DS copy because I have them available.

Wii does have additional play controls, and I don't have to suffer through a M/KB for a platformer... And I'm not going to console-ize my pc either.

PC is great for RPGs, RTS, Shooters, and MMOs, the way it's suppose to be.

If you don't own a 360 or don't want a controller for your PC, that's your business, but regardless it does have better controls than the Wii version.

Very tempting. I picked up Underworld for $15 last weekend at Target, and I have to say, I'm really enjoying it so far.

How does it compare to the latest one in the series, Underworld? Did the same developers that did Underworld do Anniversary as well?

The three recent games are by Crystal Dynamics, and are all good. The old ones were by Core, and IMO had issues. The CD relaunch is really good.

Anniversary is different in that its a remake, and its supposed to be skewed more towards environmental puzzles than Legend/Underworld, but its still supposed to be really good (I've been saving it as I expect to love it).
