Variants

You’re going to want to sit down for this one. Aside from the obvious visuals, of interest is that the Retail Barcode changed for the GH releases to 7 88687 30363 7. The discs almost all look the same, so hunting loose copies is a nightmare. The oddball “A” Variant ups the PSRM to xxxxx1, but then it all gets reverted back on successive releases.

Trivia

  • The back of the original release just says “Memory Card” with no Block count. This issue was not fixed till the Greatest Hits release.
  • The cover variants show an almost amusing visual story of possible problems between Eidos and Core. At first, Core’s logo is only on the back. Then, it’s next to Eidos on the front, and then it’s eventually moved as far away as possible.
  • One of the highest variant counts on the system.
  • There was potential for Tomb Raider II on the Sega Saturn, but dismal system sales cancelled any hope of it.
  • According to MobyGames, the band The Prodigy delayed an album release as they were all too busy playing Tomb Raider II.
  • Home to the amusing glitch / event where you can lock her loyal butler in the kitchen freezer.
