At one point, an Anniversary edition was being made by Core Design, but this project was shut down because they no longer owned the rights to the series. The development of a game celebrating ''Tomb Raider'''s 10-year anniversary was instead transferred to Crystal Dynamics, resulting in this game.

** The trap-filled corridors in the Egyptian levels are probably the most extreme example in the later games. According to the commentary, the creators' decided that "traps" would be the theme of those levels, and basically stuffed the hallways with instant-death perils just to make them more interesting. The timing can be a bit tricky to get right.
** The ascent in the ''Great Pyramid'' section of the ''Lost Island''. It's basically a series of timed jumping puzzles, that get worse the higher you go. The jumps themselves are not always that difficult to make, but in between levels, there are enemies that can blow you off your platform, forcing you to redo entire sections. This can be incredibly frustrating, and make it appear harder than it is.
