Yes I believe so...It has the same general gameplay style and "feel" to it...but the environments in Anniversary are a bit more epic...especially in later stages...old school egyptian tombs, the roman colosseum, etc.

I'm not sure what you mean exactly by "more epic?"

The puzzles in Underworld were much better than Legend or Anniversary IMO. They really opened up the environments in Underworld, so that the puzzles and platforming aren't nearly as linear as they were in previous games. You really are exploring some huge environments, rather than being funneled down a path. Otherwise I agree, the games all have the same general style and feel. Anniversary is certainly worth $5 though.

I just finished TR: Underworld on PS3 last week and I was thinking about getting another TR game to play. Damn, Steam is beginning to read my mind!:shock:

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...

Just out of curiosity why would you buy this game on the 360 and PS2?

Either way I'm very interested in this. It ran like butter on my PC (the demo).

It's just that simple.

Yeah, site seems to be down for me too right now. Guess I'll have to check later, thanks for the deal OP!

Edit: Steam's back up now

I am still having trouble trying to install it. Probably just server down time or something.

Does it have Steam achievements? If so, I'll grab it but if not I'll just get the 360 version at GS.

Good deal; but Steam's checkout system is currently broken.

Not any particularly good reason. I bought it for the 360, and then got the PS2 version when the price dropped. At the time I was thinking maybe I'd be able to standardize on one system, but that doesn't seem to be working out :(

Never much of a Tomb Raider fan back in the day, but I bought it anyway
$5 games are just too hard for me to pass up! :-P

Damnation. I can buy Lara Croft for two dollars less than a pack of smokes. Curse you Steam.

This game looks pretty good on my rig. Every time there's one of these sales I end up buying a copy for myself and gifting one to a friend too. It's hard not to with it being so damn cheap.

dammit, it slipped my mind to buy this and now it's gone.

I guess it's good to save $5 but would've liked to have gotten it. oh well.

It's a solid PC game...don't know if its a port or not, but it has no issues on my rig, runs like a dream, and plays pretty well too, although Prince of Persia's incredibly fluid play has spoiled me a bit...I keep thinking I can wall run :D
