Dokuro makes the jump from handheld to PC, but does it help or hinder this unusual platformer?

What do these ratings mean?

this is the first game i got almost twelve years ago when i got my playstation and i was hooked-there was a game i could finally get into whole-heartedly, and i got to shoot things, find items, and totally kick some ass. the cut scenes were awesome i couldn't wait to see what the next level had in store for me. the graphics aren't that great but who cares the others got better in time. of course i beat this game without cheat codes the first time second time around i tried the codes to  see if they worked. to this day i have all the tomb raider series except for one but i  still get the feeling of happiness and adventure when i pop in one of the games for the ps one. the controls are easy-it helps to play around at lara's house if you haven't played in awhile or if you've never played before. the targeting system is pretty great but if you A) have a lot of dinos running at you, B) have a lot of people running at you it gets pretty confusing when you try aiming at the first thing and you hit the second one instead. how i get around that is this: shoot the first dino or what have you until it falls. when it falls to the ground, immediately start shooting the second critter. repeat this until everything stops running at you and you should be fine. of course i don't own this game anymore but if i want to play around to take a trip down memory lane that's not a problem.  i also like the statistics it shows at the end of every level you beat- it gives you a heads up on everything and for me it gives me an incentive to try just a but harder to beat my times with the least amount of kills. for old school gaming this can't be beat.
