Only thing I don't like about the old Tomb Raider games is the shooting because everything takes way too long to kill. I actually think Legends/Anniversary and Underworld were worse than the originals for this.

Otherwise they're good games, solid platforming and puzzles. Though be warned with the platforming, you often need to be pixel perfect with your jumps and it works on an almost grid-like system (kinda reminds me of the original Prince of Persia). Once you wrap your head around it though, it becomes second nature. The only thing from that point which can get truly tedious is never being sure if you're jumping towards a grabbable ledge or just a piece of scenery!

I also do not miss the save point system from the console versions, you can save scum on PC IIRC. Much more friendly to play.

I'm playing through Anniversary now and I'm enjoying it. Legends was also decent.

Every Tomb Raider games movement feels floaty.

It very much uses a grid system, and being "pixel perfect" is actually pretty easy. Walk to the edge of a platform. Take one hop back. Then start running to the edge, and press and hold jump. As long as you press jump after the run animation starts, but before Lara plummets over the edge, she will jump at exactly the edge every single time without fail.

If the original ps1 games have some sort of save system that lets you save before every jump then id recommend them.

I remember playing em when I was a kid and could not complete any of the games. The tank controls and some fixed cameras were so awkward to use and in many places you die if you fail a jump and have to start the level all over again.
