Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Legend

Into Liquid Sky
17 September 2006
  • Excerpt: Do I really have to go through the whole sordid past of how the Tomb Raider series lost its way? Or should I just point to the sloppy almost-nail-in-the-coffin Angel of Darkness ? After that one, Eidos handed the game development reins over to Crystal Dynamics, who have spent most of this generation putting out solid Legacy of Kain action adventure titles.
  • Pros: Large levels that look great, Nice balance of action and platforming, Variety of locations and gameplay elements, Timetrials and unlockable content
  • Cons: Controls could use some tightening, Long loading times

Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Legend Review

VideoGamer.com
21 July 2006
  • 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.

  • Conclusion: If not for those nasty motorcycle bits and the fact that the game is just a bit too short toward the end, this game would have gotten an even higher score. It is a fantastic game, and well worth the purchase price. Believe it, folks, Lara's back.

Tomb Raider: Legend

Playstation Illustrated
16 July 2006
  • Excerpt: The first lady of gaming has returned and what a glorious return it is! Lara Croft is revisiting the PS2 and in such a way as to completely erase the debacle that was Angel of Darkness . The graphics are lush and brimming with all the touches that made Tomb Raider such a successful series on the PlayStation. Crashing waterfalls, deep pools of water, dank caves and of course, the requisite musty tombs are all present and accounted for in Tomb Raider: Legend .

PSX Extreme
29 May 2006
  • Excerpt: The basic gameplay is still in tact with a lot of acrobatics, shooting, and weaving your way through deadly traps, but it's given a spit-shine with a new and vastly more capable engine. Besides the obvious graphical upgrades, the new physics system is wonderful and figures quite prominently in a number of puzzles. You no longer push objects on a restrictive grid like in most games of this ilk. Instead, they can be pulled and rotated in any direction.

Tomb Raider: Legend review (PS2)

  • Excerpt: Fortunately, the boring fights only make up a small part of the game. You've got exploration. You've got puzzle solving. 1/3 suck, 2/3 good.

Tomb Raider: Legend

The Armchair Empire
15 May 2006
  • Conclusion: Complimenting the visuals is Legends’ audio, which performs quite nicely. The ambient noises do a nice job of adding atmosphere to the game, while the music finishes the job. For the most part the voice acting is quite good, though there are a few lines in the dialogue worthy of a cringe or two. However, while the story is engaging, the whole thing is way too short, and feels like it was made so for the sole purpose of leading into a sequel.

18 June 2006
  • Excerpt: First off let’s get something clear. Despite the discouraging title “Legend”, Tomb Raider Legend is NOT a rehash of a beloved PC Tomb Raider game. As the game starts you’ll strut Mr. Croft’s stuff as you tool around a Bolivian mountaintop slash ancient temple, finding out what buttons makes Miss Croft do what, all the while getting into the introduction of the game and the story it provides (which, yes, is a far better story than the one thrashed about in the much...
