YMMV: Tomb Raider Anniversary
  • Foe Yay: Is really played up between Lara and Larson, especially when compared to the original.
  • Genius Bonus:
  • Hell Is That Noise: The Egypt level runs on this trope, with sinister whisperings and subtle sounds echoing throughout the empty hallways, making you wonder what the hell is hiding down this place. What's worse is that some of the sounds are creepily akin to a heavy breathing...
  • Most Annoying Sound: "No."
  • Most Wonderful Sound: The jingle that plays when you find a secret. For some, the sound of the Check Point can be this as well.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Anything involving the Atlanteans, but especially the sacks from which they burst when you come too close.
    • There's also Lara's various deaths via Quick Time Events. While they are normally censored, she still dies in pretty gruesome ways, even compared to earlier games.
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks: While some of the fandom still wasn't entirely hot on this new Lara, any Video Game Remake inevitably risks falling prey to this trope. Specifically, some people were not happy with the way some levels were streamlined, with much of the siderooms being removed or reappearing elsewhere in the game. Lara's motivations were also called in question, as she no longer appears to raid tombs "for sport", but to find out what happened to her mother. Some fans of the original Tomb Raider screamed in fury at the T-Rex encounter being a boss battle largely played by quick-time events.
