Conclusion: As mentioned in the previous review the PSP's analogue stick is less than perfect for this game and that's a crying shame because everything else is so good about it. I'd advise you to buy this for a home console if you own one as you'll have a far more enjoyable experience playing what is undeniably one of Lara's best outings yet. *** because of the controls.
A decent game to play if you have to go on a long journey somewhere. A bit boring though.

Excerpt: Tomb Raider: Legend, released in 2006 can be seen as a downfall for the Tomb Raider series. The biggest difference with the PSP game and the game on other consoles is the hard controls. But if you can learn to live with the control, you'll find that the game is an ongoing adventure, however it is the exact same as the game on any other console; expect to solve the same puzzles and do the exact same thing.
Summary: This game is very short, eight levels (Well, seven plus a boss-fight). Also, Like all TR games since II, Lara spends more time gunning people down than actually, y'know, raiding tombs. I don't have any objection to shooting games, I've put in time in various GTA editions and Doom clones, but that's not what I want from Tomb Raider.
Summary: I actually played this game after first having played thru TR Anniversary. With so many RPG games on the market I had drifted away from the series after being disappointed with angel of darkness. If you are or were a tomb raider fan you will absolutely adore Anniversary, but as for Legend. Well, the kindest thing I can say about it is that you leave it on the shelf.
Summary: Graphically the PSP version isn't as good as the Xbox version but from the little I've seen is on par with the PS2. I've only given the game 3 stars because of the poor controls. I've played thorough several levels and controlling Lara can be really hard, especially when swimming. I can appreciate the other reviewers getting all excited about Lara Croft but the thing is do you really want to pay (...) on the PSP version just to look at Lara's **** on the bus?
Summary: Jetzt möchte ich auch mal meine Erfahrung bezüglich dieses Spiels abgeben. Ich ein großer Tomb Raider-Fan und für mich als PSP-Besitzer war es keine Frage das ich mir irgendwann Tomb Raider für unterwegs zulege. Jedoch blieb Legend überwiegend negativ für mich in Erinnerung was hauptsächlich daran liegt, dass dieses Spiel stellenweise einfach unfassbar vor sich hinruckelt und somit kaum spielbar ist.
Summary: Nachdem ich nun also Excalibur auch auf der PSP zusammengesetzt und das unbekannte Wesen besiegt habe, wird es Zeit für eine Rezension der PSP-Version des Spieles. Das Spiel an sich ist wirklich gut. Klettern, rätseln, Ruinen und Höhlen erkunden (und das alles gewürzt mit mytischen Legenden (hier: das legendäre Schwert Excalibur aus der Artus-Saga) - das alles sind die bekannten Zutaten, die Tomb Raider (wieder) über alle anderen Spielereihen stellen.
