This is an intriguing deal. I'll have to think this one over.

Thanks for the heads up.

Cool! I got Anniversary when Steam put it on sale for $5 last year. $7.49 is fair for a newer game.

Great game. The first level is very long, but very good.

I hate when I miss out on these great deals :bomb:
Oh well, it was a gift for a friend and he played that game nonstop until he beat it :D.

Two lame games in a row. Huge disappointment after their pretty decent weekend sale.

I played the first level on PS3. How does the PC version compare. I mean 7.50 is a great price so I probably will pick it up. I just wanted to get a feel for the pc gameplay. I prefer pc over console usually anyways.

Just keep in mind the Xbox 360 version is the only one that has the extra DLC. That includes story stuff and also a bunch of outfit packs.

$7.99 and free shipping from NewEgg (for those who prefer physical media).

Bought! I loved the demo for this game and the PC versions of Tomb Raider I think are always well done.

Same here. I'm fighting aggressively not to take this deal. I know there will be more deals in the coming days, so I'm trying not to overspend too soon.

That's a good deal but I already have it :P

Word to the wise - I think you need a semi-beefy system to run it at all well. Or at least, you did. They might have patched some of the graphics issues (I know when I first got it about a year ago, the game was neigh unplayable on my Geforce 7800GS, but I *think* that was due to some bugs specific to their handling of certain cards). There's a demo over there if you aren't sure.

Fun game though, I really need to beat it sometime.

It's a real shame that Eidos axed Crystal Dynamics after this though. I honestly thought they did a decent job of making Tomb Raider not suck anymore (especially this and Anniversary seemed to incorporate a lot of "lessons learned" from a few flaws in Legend). Granted, they are owned by Square now so there you go :P

Yeah, tomb raider games have been really good lately.

Played the demo and decided to pick it up. Steam knows how to get into my wallet. Games for the price of a fast food combo.

I got Anniversary on sale for $5 on Steam as well (april this year) and it was a great purchase as I found the game quite good. After beating it my top wishlist games for the Steam holiday sale this year were actually Underworld and Legend, so I'm all over this deal!

I loved Anniversary and Legend, but after playing Uncharted 1 and 2, I can't ever see myself picking up Underworld.

RollingSkull,

I actually agree. The 'male' version of Tomb Raider -Uncharted- has better game mechanics but Tomb Raider was a pioneer at least in the early PS One days.

Tomb Raider is out-dated, although it was a pioneer in that genre back then.

I wonder when Steam will have a Tomb Raider pack with all 3 of the new Tomb Raider games. I would dig that if it went on a decent sale.

You mean a non-ancient video card? Of course; the game came out within the last 2 years. It's not going to run on netbooks. :P

Logan Decker (of PC Gamer) brings this game up fairly frequently on the podcast. It might be time to finally check it out.
