Platform for Display:Mac
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I am still playing TR-Anniversary, so here's my thoughts at this point.

The graphics are absolutely amazing. I have played every single TR for Mac since the first and it's hard to believe how detailed they are from what they once were (at the time, I used to think they were amazing then, but now, WOW).

~ I can't wait till the next TR becomes available for Mac! ~

For those who have played TR before, the plot will be familiar. The storyline may also be familiar.

I have two main criticisms...

I highly recommend playing the Manor first... Get used to the new controls (which are customisable as before), but more importantly, get used to Lara's movements. I find her movements frustrating to get used to, such as her direction of movement in-conjunction with the direction in which she faces. It's progress though and takes some getting used too.

Lara is much faster moving than previously where you could be more precise with her movements, such as jumps and walking (note: in Walk mode she will now fall off cliffs, so be careful). I really miss the Look mode as I enjoyed investigating. I will also add, her foes are also faster moving, but having said that she seems to run & swim slower and doesn't jump as high as before, which actually makes her appear to be more real.

Having said that, interactions with her surroundings are again, WOW. For example, when Lara moves objects, they move in 3D, as in reality and don't follow a grid-like pattern. Picking up objects is easy (I remember a previous game where it was a bit of a precise issue).

Lara has some really awesome movements which she has either, never had before or are so vastly improved.

I give TR Anniversary 5 stars because 4.5 stars is not available.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yes, it runs on the MacBook...if... March 28, 2008
Platform for Display:Mac
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I have a new MacBook 2.2 Core 2 Duo with the GMA X3100 graphics chip in it, and the game runs just fine.

The only time it slows down a bit is when you enter a large portion of a map and it has to dump it all into the memory all at once, like when you first enter the field before the T-Rex battle.

The game will slow down a bit for a couple of seconds then pick right back up after the map is loaded.

Of course, you can futz with the graphic options to minimize the effect of that happening, but I like cool graphics, so I'm not going to!

4.0 out of 5 stars Tomb Raider Anniversary for IMac Computer December 24, 2008
Platform for Display:Mac
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I have a IMac 20" with standard features including the Leopard 10.5.5 OS, a 2.66 GHz Intel Duo Core 2 processor, 2 GB of Ram, and a ATI HD 2600 Pro graphics card. This seems sufficient to run the game okay. Every so often, you will find the screen will freeze as the computer takes more data from the game disc. It's a slight annoyance but nothing major. By the way, the game disc must remain in the computer for the game to be played. Also be sure you purchase the game that is compatible for MAC computers as the others won't work.
I have not completed the game but am pleased with the playability and graphics so far. It runs pretty smooth for the most part. With about 8 hours of play into the game, it has froze up twice, requiring the computer to be turned off and restarted. When that happens, the game resumes at the last check point you have reached. Fortunately you don't have to start from the very beginning of the game.
I am not a kid and have not played any of the Lara Croft Tomb Raider games before. I found it very beneficial to play the Lara Croft Manor section first before choosing the regular game. Playing the Manor section first teaches you how to use the various moves you will come across when playing the main game. The Manor section is actually quite challenging in itself.
There is no way I could complete this game without some walkthrough help. When I get to a point and can't figure out how to proceed, I simply quit the game. It will auto save at various points or you can manually save the game at any time you wish. Then go onto the Internet and Google Lara Croft Tomb Raider Anniversary Walkthrough. You can choose from any number of walkthroughs that are available. They will explain what to do to complete each level. Then go back to the game and proceed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tomb Raider November 5, 2009
By J. Best
Platform for Display:Mac|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I guess I would be considered a dinosaur in todays world of video games. I've always had a soft spot for the Tomb Raider series, right from the beginning. I haven't begun on this "latest" MAC edition of Anniversary but soon will be.I say "latest" because the folks at Eidos don't really give **** about MAC users. These days it is rare to find games put out for us MAC folks,so when a "new" version of Tomb Raider comes out for in MAC format, I take notice. Raise your voices MAC'ers and long-time Tomb Raider fans! Get Eidos to remember the rest of us!

5.0 out of 5 stars Works great, even for Intel GMA February 22, 2008
By Greg
Platform for Display:Mac
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Even with the graphics cards found in MacBooks and Mac Minis, this game works great. Simply lower the gfx settings slightly. It still looks beautiful, and runs smooth. I recommend it to anyone who's enjoyed the series in the past, or someone interested in the franchise.

4.0 out of 5 stars great game controls not so good. October 23, 2008
Platform for Display:Mac
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I really enjoy this game. Have had no issues running it on my macbook pro. The only drawback is the controls. I am playing this with a game pad. I thought that the controls would be similar to other versions of TR I have played. It makes it challenging and frustrating at times.

5.0 out of 5 stars I liked the game a lot better then I thought I would.
I put off buying this for a long time but finally broke down and got it. I was a big fan of the early Tomb Raiders games and the new reviews were you either loved it or hated it. Read more

Great nostalgic game and much improved graphics. I would definitely recommend the use of a separate controller as using the keyboard is really inconvenient. Read more
