** In the ''Tomb of Qualopec'', there's a [[IndyEscape giant rolling-boulder-of-doom-trap]] that Lara needs to trigger in order to proceed. If the Trope name doesn't clue you in to what this might be a reference too, it was later discovered that the boulder had a bullwhip and IndianaJones -type hat [[http://www.tombraiderforums.com/showthread.php?t=150201 flattened onto it]].

* SceneryPorn: The main reason for remaking it, probably due to the original's graphics not ageing very well. Most of the areas have been expanded to double their size, which only evokes this even more. Needless to say, things look a lot prettier than in the days of the Playstation 1.

* MadeOfIron: Both Larson and Kold require quite a few bullets before succumbing. Lara as well, of course.

to:

* MadeOfIron: Both Larson and Kold require MarathonLevel: "St. Francis' Folly". After the first four levels, which were relatively short, this level will take you quite a few bullets before succumbing. Lara as well, while to finish. It doesn't help that getting around is a pain, since the majority of course.the level is vertical and requires climbing up and down ledges to advance.

* {{Prequel}}: Interestingly, rather than being a straight remake (as in retelling the story while possibly rectifying any continuity errors introduced by later installments), this game becomes a prequel to ''Legend'', adding in the elements such as Lara's missing mother that was not in the original that go on to become relevant in the following game, ''VideoGame/TombRaiderUnderworld''.
