Ships Ahoy - Tomb Raider: Anniversary

Eidos announces that Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Anniversary is now in North American stores:

Redwood City, CA (June 6, 2007) – Corks are flying across the continent as Eidos and Crystal Dynamics toast the release of Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Anniversary, which ships to North American retailers today.

Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Anniversary is a celebration of Lara’s original adventure in an entirely new Crystal Dynamics game. In 1996 the original Tomb Raider video game launched and introduced the world to Lara Croft, one of the entertainment industry’s most successful and prolific cross-over properties.

“The anniversary edition is a fan-inspired celebration bridging Lara Croft’s groundbreaking past with a revived passion for new adventures and technical advancements,” said Bill Gardner, president and CEO of Eidos Inc. “Lara Croft is at the doorway of a new decade, and we’ve made sure she’s ready to face exciting new challenges in the world of entertainment.”

Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Anniversary takes advantage of more than 10 years of technical advances to faithfully recreate the sense of isolation, suspense and surprise of the original title, but with greatly expanded environments, enhanced puzzles, updated weapons and the smooth, athletic character movements introduced in Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Legend in 2006.

Said Matt Gorman, director of marketing at Eidos Inc., “Tomb Raider: Anniversary is an exciting adventure for fans of the franchise and a great introduction to Lara Croft for a whole new generation of consumers.”

The first Tomb Raider game sold more than seven million copies worldwide. Lara Croft went on to become a global entertainment icon, gracing more than 200 magazine covers, touring with U2 and topping $1 billion in brand equity. In total, the franchise has sold more than 30 million games, inspired two feature films and produced comic books, animated series and countless other licensed products.

Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Anniversary was developed by Crystal Dynamics, with versions available for the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system and Windows PC under Windows Vista™. Versions for the PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system and the Wii™ console are forthcoming.

It's flattering that you give my words such importance that it's worth debating over such arbitrary interpretations, but really...

Then you went on to say other stuff. Personally I was not giving your words much importance. I was just enjoying a fun yet meaningless argument that I read regarding your original post and what was inferred. But, I will joyfully stand by my quote to your quote that I quoted, that your quote says that Anniversary may indeed bring integrity back to the franchise also says that Legend didn't. Obviously all of our opinions on games are opinions, including those opinions by reviewers on review sites. But, the overall opinion from what I've seen says that Legend did.
