Its got a perfect blend of combat and puzzles.
I played a tomb raider demo once, wasnt as good as metroid prime, Tomb Raider's atmosphere reminded me too much of a cheap B movie. James Bond and Indiana Jones were made as a deliberate mockery of B movies, and that is why they have a better atmosphere than actual B movies. The only B movies that are any good are movies with an urban setting.
The second reason the tomb raider franchise isn't that good is because it doesn't actually make you feel like a female. In Metroid prime you actually feel like a female. Tomb Raider is rather bland.
I played a top-down version of Tomb Raider but it was rather bland. The intro cutscene wasn't even animated, just cardboard cutouts saying generic scripts. It somehow got a 4/5 rating but I don't know why. The maps were bland and procedural looking, and the game had no substance felt like a chore. You could easily exploit AI by finding a ledge and jumping on it, then the enemies could not hurt you.
James Bond goldeneye was a good game but I were to make a remake I would add a trap system, because in the movies there are a lot of traps and not non-stop gun shooting like in the games. The James Bond goldeneye remake for the XBOX 360 was very bad, it was actually worse than the goldeneye remake for the Wii, which was more good than it was bad. The XBOX 360 goldeneye was bad because I played the demo and it had no puzzles, just repetitive call of duty style point A to Point B gameplay.
Yeah, I never played that spin-off. And in any case, to me Tomb Raider is about being alone (after all the enemies are dead) in a tomb or temple or the like and especially wall-scaling through it (I also loved this in Assassin's Creed 2 and Prince of Persia Sands of Time, 2008, and The Forgotten Sands). Anniversary and Underworld even made shimmying fun by allowing you to go faster by tapping a button (meaning both interactivity and speeding up of what's otherwise just lamely holding a direction). For some reason they took that out with the reboot...
I liked Goldeneye back in the day, especially the first level, but after Deus Ex I cannot go back to such unstealthy FPSes.

I loved playing nvChess, they had really cool graphics, but they don't have an app for it.
