Why are we arguing about a series that wasn't very good to begin with? There are plenty of platformers from that era that deserve much more praise than Tomb Raider.

Such as..? The first two TR games were great for their time. The series got worse over time due to lack of evolution but the same applies to most long-running series. When it comes to pseudorealistic 3D platformers, Tomb Raider and Prince of Persia games are really the only ones worth mentioning.

I knew someone would complain about that, and almost took it out.
You're 100% right, but I'm not a Tomb Raider fan. I dislike platforming. I wish Uncharted, especially the most recent, had less shooting and more exploring/puzzles, but I'm pretty happy I rarely had to line up jumps.
So, to me, it's a similar game with better mechanics.

You probably would have been better off leaving it out. If you don't like platformers, you're not qualified to judge a Tomb Raider game. It's like judging Thief or Splinter Cell if you hate stealth games. Or X-COM if you hate turn-based strategy games.
