Well, so this is the new Tomb Raider....after all those sequels which were derided for apparently lowering the quality of the game every time (I actually quite enjoyed most of them, with only a few exceptions), Tomb Raider Legend has been lauded as the return to form. Well in my opinion, it's more like an expanded demo of a potential return to form. However it looks great, and as I started playing, I was hoping for the thrill of the very first game to come back to me. I played the original PS1 Tomb Raider game again recently and I couldn't believe how well it had aged. The levels were long, the explorable areas were huge, and the puzzles were multi-layered, often built out of smaller component puzzles. The game as a whole had a good solid length and satisfying difficulty curve. This is a game that is now a decade old, and I'm still impressed by it.
So how far have we come? Well, Tomb Raider Legend has definitely played true to the original spirit. It has enhanced the character of Lara Croft, as well as re-invented the control system. I'm very happy about the former update (Lara is still beautiful, upper-class and indomitable), but not so keen on the latter. It came as quite a shock to me to find that the definitive control system had been completely re-worked and, with no option to customize it, I was initially bewildered. X is now jump? Triangle is action? No walk button? No sidestep or sidejump? No backstep for those tricky jumps? It took some getting used to, and I'm not sure whether it's an improvement or not. The grid of jumpable distances and calculations that all TR fans will surely recall has been dumped, and instead Lara behaves like all other platform game protagonists...Read more ›
It's beautiful to look at, it controls like a dream and it's got an excellent plot. Seriously, if you made a list of all the things that you loved about former Tomb Raider games, then Legend will almost definitely fulfill all of those criteria - as well as coming up with a few new ones for you to enjoy.
Unfortunately, while you're busy enjoying all of these things, you'll probably not notice the game's extremely short lifespan creeping to a close, and before you know it, you'll be finished, and mad as hell that there's not more of this excellent title to enjoy. But while you're in the middle of it, 'Tomb Raider: Legend' is an almost-compulsory title for you to own.
FINALLY, this is one Tomb Raider game where the secondary characters look as good as Lara does! Bye bye, Bouchard and Mme. Carvier, with your big square hands and lousy textures - Zip, Alistair, Amanda and others are here to take your place! Top marks must go to Visuals here, with the developers are squeezing every last ounce of power from the seven-year-old PS2 technology to create a world for Lara that's as clever in its level design as it is jaw-droppingly beautiful to look at. Leaping about on rooftops in the Japan level, dispatching mercenaries in Bolivia and unlocking huge temples in Ghana all made me sit up and go "Wow! ". Lighting effects, animation, colours - you can't appreciate it from screen shots: this is an incredible-looking game.
Again, top marks to the wonderful aural atmosphere that the music, voice acting and sound effects create in 'Tomb Raider: Legend'.Read more ›
1. Some of the camera angles were bad.
2. The button sequence parts got annoying after awhile.
3. Blasted grenades! Yeah you got them but so do the enemy and they love to use them!!
4. Tigers & leopards. Annoying plus how many bullets does it take to actually kill a leopard. Too many if you ask me.
5.Sound wise sometimes it was hard to hear Lara talking to Zip and the other guy. This lowered my enjoyment of the game since I didn't really know what they said to each other half of the time.
6. THE MAJOR FLAW WAS IT WAS MUCH TOO SHORT!! THE ENDING WAS VERY GOOD BUT MUCH TOO SHORT!!!
7. NO replayability much like KINGDOM HEARTS 2.
The stuff They improved:
1. The detail in this game was awesome!! From the smoke coming from her just fired guns to when she gets out of the water she actually looks wet(her hair, her clothes, her skin), realistic shadows, her breath coming out when it's cold.
2. Love Lara's new moves!!
3. Love the motor bike parts in the game.
4. New Personal Light Source Yes! so much better than flares!!
5. Plenty of health packs
6. plenty of ammo and weapons
7. Cool outfits (what can I say I'm such a girl)
8. Sound wise (music) pretty good.
9. Binoculars (RAD mode) pretty dang helpful
10. Excaliber oh yeah!!
11. The ending though short was good!! Pistol whipping Amanda was priceless. She So deserved it!!
All in all good game but still kinda of disappointed with it. The shortness factor. If it would have had a longer ending it probably could have redeemed itself.
