About this product
- Product InformationPlayers take on the role of Lara Croft, an explorer who is always up for any adventure that involves finding rare artifacts. This time Lara has been hired to locate and retrieve the three pieces of the Scion. From a third-person perspective players will explore 15 levels spread out over four areas of the world: Peru, Greece, Egypt, and Atlantis. Each level features secrets, puzzles, and enemies to combat.
Lara begins the game with two pistols but throughout the adventure many new weapons can be found, such as a shotgun and an uzi. Weapons have limited ammunition so players must always be on the lookout for more. At the end of every level Tomb Raider displays how long it took to complete and the number of secrets found.

A timeless classic!!!
Not many people realize but Tomb Raider was originally released for the Sega Saturn and ported to PC and later the Sony PlayStation. While the PlayStation version is the most well known and remembered fondly, the Saturn version is just as good. Unfortunately the Saturn version is way overlooked. There are a few differences between the two consoles version. First the visuals, the Saturn version looks much worse than its PC and PlayStation counterparts. It is more pixelated and the game is very dark, but features a handy flashlight that allows the player to adjust the gamma via in-game menu. Also it was said that the Saturn was known for not being able to do transparencies and reflections (which was later proven wrong when NiGHTS into Dreams... and Burning Rangers were released) overall it does has some graphical advantages over the PlayStation. As far as controls it depends on the person playing it, either version it's just fine. Now is this game worth playing? the thing is it is a great game, but it's mainly a great game because of the nostalgia, it really has not hold up well at all because the camera and the graphics, but you can look past it and appreciate Tomb Raider for what it is. Other than that it's all about the gameplay and it's great!!!!! Tomb Raider is very fun and still fun to play to this day, it is one of the most impressive/inventive games released for the fifth-generation era and remains the most critically acclaimed game in the long-running franchise, I would recommend anyone who loves action-adventure video games to pick it up, and if you own a Sega Saturn it is worth having the original.

The Game That Started It All.
I remember on Christmas we had a 'special' gift from my older cousin, it was a Sega Saturn System loaded with games - including this one, Tomb Raider. I was an amassed fan of the series shortly after, (not because of the pixel-made cleavage either)I could run jump and shoot. Loved it. I have to say the Sega Saturn Version is slightly better than the Playstation twin. Simply for the controls were more fluid and the special, and at times handy 'gamma' flashlight contained within the Menu Options. On an easy scale, now that I'm 20, this game is very easy, compared to some of the more puzzling and fustrating sequels (like Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation) Its a must-have if the only thing in the series you've participated in was the Movies. I also recommend you play them in order - There's a story line, though choppy and at times lackluster with detail, contained within the series, most notably TR1 up to Tomb Raider: Angel of Darkness. Aside from the rants here, the game is beautiful for a 1996 release, but choppy none the less compared with todays games. This game was well ahead of its time. The Storyline is decent, the characters are few aside from Laura herself and the many critters she must kill. The puzzles are rather simple, a newbie to the series may find them complicated, but if your a veteran, you should surpass them all without any hold up. Read full review

this tomb raider disk will not allow me to commmand laura do a hand stand when hanging from a ledge , normally acheived by presssing up and holding the walk and button not letteing go of the action buttton. i apologize if those instructions do not make sense, there are game sights that explain it better how to do it , however in the orginal tomb raider game lara will do a hand stand, I beleive this difference in action be not a mistake but purposely to seperate late cd and new cd , if you know what i'm sayin , no big deal , just a tip , thank you KRYPTERCHID

Tomb Raider is one of the greatest games to grace the Sega Saturn. The graphics were nicely done for its time. I liked the levels and the obstacles that were in store for Lara. The T-Rex battle was a nice addition. Not to mention the battle with the giant Atlantean creature towards the end of the game. Lara got to unleash fury on the beast with her uzis and magnums. The music was rather nice. I got a kick out of some of the cinemas between the levels. The loading time was sort of long, but I got over it. I had this game for about nine years now and I still haven't beat it(didn't get to play it as much as I wanted and I ended up losing my save data). Some of the levels were a big challenge especially towards the end of the game. Palace Midas is one of my favorite levels. This is a game you will enjoy on a good day and if you're bored or just wanna kill time. I bought mine Brand New in 1998 from the Electronics Boutique during the so -callled Fall of the Sega Satrun era. There are plenty for sale on eBay for a fair price. Be sure to pick it up if it is of interest to you. Read full review

Tomb Raider for the Sega Saturn
Take one of videogames sexiest female adventurers and put her on the Sega Saturn in her very own shooter/quest game and you get Tomb Raider. Here you have one of most popular videogame heroines in videogame history in a game that has spawned many other games and even a few movies. This is a great game for all those shoot-em up / adventuring cravers out there!!!
