Playing this with my brother back in the day is something that I will never forget. Good times ♥

Man, the Saturn controller kills me hands.

GooeyScale: 70/100

really great atmosphere, really difficult controls. kind of an underrated masterpiece in spite of that - i was surprised by how much they did in this game and how memorable some of the levels are for coming out in 1996. it goes a lot further than you think it does. the controls also start to make a strange sort of sense after a certain point, but you can't approach them in the same way as contemporary 3D games.

playing Tomb Raider 2 (dear lord) after also made me realize how much restraint this game has by comparison.

Мне нравится система управления с непростым платформингом, но этот геймплей окружён раковым геймдизайном и лвл-дизайном. Игра даёт формулу нормальной адвенчуры: платформинг, экшен и пазлы, но во всех аспектах это отвратительный опыт. Само собой, без гайдов лезть не стоит. Сейчас это проходить незачем.

The earliest memory I have of gaming is playing the original Tomb Raider on the PS1 in the early 2000s. Without this game I don't think I would have kept a controller in my hands for over 20 years
