Tomb Raider: Legend

10 February 2009
  • Excerpt: The way games evolved in the past ten years seems to have left the Tomb Raider series in a dusty corner. The frustrating controls and a camera view meant to drive you nuts, which could be excused in the fist...

Tomb Raider: Legend

Strategy Informer
25 June 2007
  • Excerpt: My experience with Lady Croft and the Tomb Raider franchise goes back to the original Tomb Raider, which was played with much gusto and no little amount of hysterical giggling. At the time Tomb Raider was a break through in the flexibility of the character and the fact it was a female heroine in an industry that has long been male dominated.

Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Legend Review

17 May 2007
  • Excerpt: For one of the industry's most recognisable characters, Lara hasn't appeared in that many great games. 1997's tomb Raider II was her last quality outing, with her adventures since then being rather mixed. Expectations for Legend, then, were mixed, as the title could have gone in either direction. Thankfully Eidos and Crystal Dynamics have come up with the goods, delivering a Tomb Raider game fans will love, and a next-gen version to boot.

Test Lara Croft Tomb Raider Legend

Generation NT
22 April 2007
  • Excerpt: Eidos  nous a donc fait patienter un peu moins de trois ans pour nous livrer ce septième épisode des aventures de la plantureuse londonienne. C’est donc avec une certaine impatience que nous sommes partis à la découverte du jeu. Heureusement pour la brune à la queue de cheval ( et accessoirement pour le joueur ) elle ne se retrouve pas toute seule au fin fond du monde.

14 October 2006
  • Excerpt: The most famous gal in video games, Lara Croft (sorry Princess Peach ), is back! She's been a video game superstar for 10 years now and has had the one and only Angelina Jolie play her in two movies . But, ever since her first game dropped, the sequels have been lamer and lamer. So, how does the new Tomb Raider: Legend rate? We took it for a spin on the PC , PS2 , Xbox and Xbox 360 to bring you this game review!

Tomb Raider: Legend by gremlin

9 August 2006
  • Excerpt: What is it? I hesitate to say, ‘Where have you been for the last ten years?’ But I have to. If you’ve managed to live in an even vaguely developed country in the last decade without coming across Lara Croft in one form or another, I really don’t know how you’ve managed it! Me on the other hand, well, I have some familiarity with her works.

The Laser
5 August 2006
  • Summary: Tomb Raider Legend isn't without its faults, the game never really falls into the trap of mediocrity and indifference that ensnared some of the more recent installments. The improved controls make maneuvering Lara much easier and simpler than before, allowing players to concentrate on the bigger picture. Instead of fiddling with the controls, you can actually enjoy the storyline and gameplay.

Tomb Raider: Legend

AV Club
24 May 2006
  • Conclusion: Legend is a fine continuation of a classic series. Unless it inspires another Tomb Raider movie. In which case it sucks.
  • Pros: Some games have 30 levels that all look the same, but the eight in this one are distinctive and eye-popping enough to prod you ahead.
  • Cons: Lara sure looks good on a motorcycle, but the jerky controls have you smashing into the scenery.
