MASTERTRONIC RELEASES THREE CLASSIC COMPILATION SETS– The iconic games that started a revolution!

Mastertronic has today announced the release of three new compilation sets- Tomb Raider™: The Greatest Raids and Thief™– The Complete Collection from Eidos™ Interactive and Commandos Complete, bringing together your favourite classics in one exciting package!

Discover why Lara Croft™ is one of the most iconic videogame characters of all time in this collection of Lara’s first four adventures. From the Great Wall of China to the rooftops of London, from the icy wastes of the Antarctic to the sweltering Indian jungle, the action never lets up for a moment. Tomb Raider, Tomb Raider II, Tomb Raider III and Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation offer a masterful balance of exploration, adventure and action, all set in an immensely colourful, exotic 3D world. Awarded 9.2/10 by Gamespot UK for the first edition, the following titles in the series do not fall far behind, making this blockbuster collection a snip at a retail price of £19.99. So experience the games that started a cult following and join Lara on the journey of a lifetime, if you can keep up with her!

“If you’re tired of wannabes, clones, and half-baked attempts at originality, play Thief: The Dark Project and get totally absorbed in the story, gameplay, and Garrett himself,” states Adrenaline Vault giving this title five stars and its coveted Seal of Approval. This sets the tone for its predecessors, as Thief 2: The Metal Age and Thief: Deadly Shadows follow closely behind. Thief– The Complete Collection contains all three of the genre- defining stealth adventures, including the ultra-rare Gold edition of the first Thief game. Putting the player in the silent shoes of acolyte Garrett as he prowls his way around the City, you are treated to an astounding visual experience. Thief– The Complete Collection retails at £9.99. You'll need a whole new level of stealth, cunning, strategy and skill to survive!

In the most fearsome war ever fought, emerged the most fearless soldiers– the Commandos. From Normandy to the South Pacific, from Stalingrad to Berlin, the Commandos are engaged in the most deadly assignments of World War II. Are you fit to lead them to success? The series is the epitome of action strategy games with each individual instalment attracting excellent reviews and high scores, including 9/10 for Commandos: Beyond the Call of Duty and similarly, PC Gamer awarding a 90% review score to Commandos 2: Men of Courage. The Commandos Complete collection brings together all five of the Commandos titles in one explosive package for a retail price of just £14.99.

“Mastertronic have long been known for bringing the very best value titles to market”, commented Sales Director James Cato,“but this time, we have excelled ourselves. The classic compilations that we are showcasing are some of our strongest ever titles, and quite simply the best value products out on the market today– something that we’re exceptionally excited about.”

All three compilations were released on 28th August.

The Group now leads the European value publishing sector through its retail brands M.A.D. (Mastertronic Added Dimension), Sold Out (the UK's largest-selling budget operation, acquired by the Group in 2004) and PC Gamer Presents, a unique quality-assured brand in association with the leading games magazine publisher Future Publishing. The Group also offers, through its wholly owned subsidiary The Producers Limited (also acquired in 2004), a 'cradle to grave' total turnkey service for physical product, from marketing through packaging and warehousing, to retail and digital distribution.
