Anyone? What did you think about it?

To me this was one of the best games I have every played, it's in the top part of my top single player games list, along with the two CoD MWs, Dragon Age Origins, GTA VC and SA, and also NFS Porsche Unleashed. Yeah, yeah, I have a weird top games list, I don't care about your opinion on that.

Anyway my point is that my opinion on TRA is biased, due to the fact that it's a remake of TR1, which is one of the first games I ever played, and is to this day one of my absolute favourites (unfortunately I can't play it because for some reason it works at like 3 seconds per frame if I run it in DOSBox or in compatibility mode - I haven't tried on my better computer yet, though). So I'm wondering how an unbiased observer without nostalgia sees TRA. I'm guessing as a Tomb Raider rip-off of Prince of Persia?
...and that's the bottom line because Mate de Vita said so.

A little side note, I finally managed to find an old installation (or whatever the proper noun for this is) of TR 1 from an old computer of mine, and I copied it to a CD, then tried running it on my laptop. It didn't run in Compatibility mode, but I managed to get it to work in DOSBox. The only problem is that it runs at like 3-5 fps.

So, can anyone who knows something about DOSBox tell me if this is a problem that would be solved if I ran it on a better computer (the specs on this one are: Intel Pentium 1.4GHz processor, 768MB RAM, Mobility RADEON 9200 with 32MB VRAM, Windows XP SP2), or if there is any other way to solve it?

That might have been Windows 9x. Oops.

I'd suggest looking up the DosBOX wiki, they have pages for quite a few games. It's likely that if you need some special sauce to get TR working properly, they'll know about it.

Their wiki seems to be down. :/
I did find this but it resolved nothing, only showed other people are experiencing similar difficulties on similar system specs.

At least you are not alone. Or something. It might just be that the emulation for full 3D is dodgy. It is 3D, right? I have no idea.

In other news, I bought Tomb Raider: GoL, because I plan to play it through with a friend and put crazy videos on the internets.

Just a little update, it works beautifully on the other computer with better specs so it's not a compatibility problem.

Excellent success. Just because I know you care, Guardian of Light is brilliant, and one of My Favourite Games. (tm)
