IGN has posted their 7.0 review of Tomb Raider Anniversary, a budget game I’d like to play some time this holiday. From the review:
The Wii control additions really do add to the experience and the game looks pretty good, too. The end product is not exemplary, but it is a step in the right direction and it’s also entertaining, particularly when you’re jumping from ledge to ledge or swinging across chasms to the beat of moody music. Although I think it’s just as good as previous versions of Anniversary, I’ve lowered the score of the game on Wii because little effort has been made to capitalize on the added horsepower of Nintendo’s console. That the framerate regularly suffers in wide-open levels is really disappointing. I wouldn’t call it a deal breaker, but an unfortunate oversight.
Worth the $40 asking price?
