Tomb Raider gets PSN release!

July 24th, 2009 -

Me being the Tomb Raider fanboy I am(well at least all of Crystal Dynamic’s TR), I just couldn’t help myself from posting this story. That’s right, Tomb Raider: Anniversary and Tomb Raider: Legend were released on the PSN this week. Unfortunately they are the PSP versions of the games(I’m still hoping for PS2 PSN titles!!!).


For those not in the TR loop, Anniversary is the retelling of Lara’s first adventure originally released on the PS1. Though the original game was designed by Core Interactive, the new TR developer: Crystal Dynamics, did a great job with this remake. With a great story and an overarching link to both Legend and Underworld, I’d say this is a definite if you wanna play a good trilogy.

Next up is TR: Legend. Legend was the first game in the series to be developed by Crystal Dynamics. The release of Legend breathed new life into the series, freeing up some of the more clunky control aspects of the previous titles (though some still remain). I loved Legend’s story and feel; it brings a new personality for Lara (which a lot of fans do criticize), amazing looking levels (at least for PS2 standards), and the overall giddyness I got from the lore used in the story gave the game a special place in my heart. Again, I recommend it to anyone willing to try it.

Now all Sony needs to do is patch the PS3 with that backwards compatibility and start releasing some PS2 classics. Can you imagine PS2 games being properly upscaled and dare I day dream too much…. with trophies! Yeah, fat chance I know, but one can dream right?
