Bought it last friday (Europe here), & i finished it last weekend (8-12h of gameplay).

Overall, the game is very good, the gameplay is awesome & the difficulty is high.

But, the gfx quality is worse than in Legend, cause it hasn't next gen mode, so, no shadow casting, no shaders on Lara's skin, ...

There's also a note to the players. It says that TRA is a tribute to the players, for their years of fidelity. But if it was truth, we should have next gen mode on the PC version, cause, the PC was the 1st home for Lara adventures & it deserves a respect due to it !

There's no 360 version, & that's prolly why PC version hasn't next gen mode.

Although Next Gen provided overall better PQ and effects, it had strange problems with lighting at times. But still, i wish it would be available in Anniversary

Got it, and loving it. It has a few annoying little things like the autopilot'ish controls, but overall it is excellent so far. Much bigger than Legend was. Graphics are about the same as normal mode was in Legend. Screw "next-gen". It was buggy, ran like total ass, and really did not look better. Just different. Some things looked better with it, while others just looked wrong.

A couple handy tips I've learned so far:

1. While guns are drawn, pressing the "use" button reloads weapons.
2. Using manual aim helps hit some items you need to grapple, and pull on, that otherwise your grapple seems to just bounce off of (bugged?).
3. Mouse + Keyboard with weapon mode on "Advanced Toggle" works way better than gamepads in my opinion, but if you insist on simulating a console (poke jab poke), the "Display HUD" button centers the camera behind Lara. Using KB+M is like holding that button at all times unless you move the mouse to look. Much better.

I actually prefer how the controls are when I used my 360 controller on this.

Got it via STEAM, played the mansion and up through T-Rex...

1. Nice update to visuals, as mentioned, Legend without the buggy next-gen cruft. A couple small glitched with shadows but I would bet they will be fixed with a driver update.

2. Pretty much the original game intact with some bullet-time and some minor details fleshed out.

3. Control is decent but not stunning, playable but the camera fights you a little more than it did in Legend.

4. Well worth the low price of $30.

Check out a handful of screens I took in the screenshot thread in the sticky section, running at 1680x1050 with 4x AA and all details cranked.

I grabbed it last Friday. Been playing in what little spare time I have. Loving it so far. Although once you master the quick kill thingy... It's so damn easy!

I renamed the .exe to trl.exe to get SLI to work in Vista as the profile for TRA did not do anything. I am having fun with this game - old school Tomb Raider gameplay with updated graphics.
