Anniversary is a fantastic game and Legend has some cool story moments. Keeley Hawes is a waaay better Lara than Camilla Luddington.

So negative!

I started Anniversary and played it for about an hour. Seems pretty good from what I've played, though I notice Legends came before it, so I decided to hold it off until I at least get through Legends first. A wise decision?

Oh yeah, it's been a bumpy road in discovering my computer is even worse than I thought! That and having to troubleshoot the game's that eventually do work has also certainly been a learning experience... I guess I've been spoiled (sorta) by a console's capability to simply play the game as soon as you put it in. Though despite the minor road bumps (androadblocks as it were, for some games), I would still gladly invest in a gaming PC lifestyle if I could all the same. Even if they're almost a decade old, playing games at a full 60 is quite a treat, so the idea of being able to replay stuff like Dead Rising 2 again with the same fidelity is the dream right there!

Hey, if you've got the cash to spare then...

Anniversary very clearly is the first game in that timeline and Legend is set somewhere between that and Underworld. Legend is mostly self contained and has some backstory about her parents and is centered around King Arthur and Excalibur, But Underworld is the final part of the Anniversary story. Unfortunately it concludes poorly and is the weakest/buggiest game out of that run.

Legend has a little more of a combat focus than the other two, but it's still full of actual Tomb Raiding and puzzles.

@gunstarred: Mechanically speaking, though, will I still be able to jump right into Legends even though it's Anniversary's predecessor? Minus there being a little more combat in Legends, I would imagine they're both very similar in terms of controls and such?

Actually I guess it doesn't matter too much, since I'm still primarily playing Bully! That, with the occasional bouts of Torchlight II, and for some reason I've also decided to reinstall Warcraft III O.o

@yummylee: I think I was wrong before. Underworld finishes the story from Legend, but it's still the second in the timeline. In Legend they added this weird slo-mo effect when you jump off of bad guys. It made everything incredibly easy. Anniversary is more like the older games, but has this lock-on that lets you do power shots into various animals faces. Lara loves killing wildlife.
