Child Lara: [looking at her drawing of Yetis] Just because no one's ever caught one doesn't mean they're not real.
Lady Croft: That is very true, but perhaps they don't wish to be found. I've heard they're rather fierce.

The return of the legend.
15 August 2010 | by johnnymacbestSee all my reviews

Believe it or not this is the first Tomb Raider game I've ever played. I've been familiar with Lara Croft ever since I've owned a PSone. Although Lara Croft, whose character is mainly inspired by Indiana Jones, Lara is a heroine with her own style and personality. I never played any of the games in the series; this is due to the fact that I've had fairly any interest in the midst of FPS. Having owned an XBox 360, I decided to purchase this game out of curiosity. And by that I'm glad because Ms Croft has made me a new fan of her adventures.

The game has good production values with a stunning, James Bond-esquire intro that details our heroine's exploits across distant lands of the world. The controls are well-made and made playing the game a lot of fun though it took me awhile to get accustomed to Ms Croft's world. But after beating the game, I became more and more anxious to get my hands on the next installment in the franchise. And it's got great graphics to boot though they looked at bit too cartoonish for my liking; this is evident that the game didn't take full advantage of the 360's hardware. Even though I never played TR, I knew the story by reading a detailed synopses online back in the mid '90s. Not a great story per se, but it later on foreshadows future events in the franchise. As for TRL's plot, I say the story is really good, even going into the Arthurian mythology and Lara's past with plot twists and a few dangerous surprises for good effect.

I also liked how Zip and Alister provided useful hints and insights into the story with a dash a comic relief, giving the game a hip attitude to an otherwise dark story of betrayal and retribution. And the voice acting doesn't hurt either with Lara voiced superbly by Keeley Hawes and Amanda Evert played by Kath Soucie(my fave voice actor, BTW) and others as well. And the musical score is another achievement that encompasses rock, techno, and orchestral. It gives the game atmosphere and dangerous tension and excitement. Not one to accuse anything of plagiarism but if you listen closely to some of the music, it sounds a lot like the score in Batman Begins. Not that it's a bad thing, but it does give the game an added punch to some of the action scenes, that are, simply stunning in their execution.

It's true that combat isn't one of the series strong points but I wasn't fazed by it. Not by a long shot. And being a fan of FPS and action games, this is a nice change of pace as violence isn't the only option out of a dangerous situation(which our heroine constantly finds herself in). This game does what it does best: Exploration and discovering/raiding tombs.

Tomb Raider wouldn't be called...well, Tomb Raider, without huge levels. They are HUGE with pits, platforms, and crevices to climb on and jump/swing from not to mention some deadly critters. These levels are the main aspects of the franchise. Ironically, despite it's title character, the levels themselves are the TRUE stars of the show and almost steal the spotlight away from Ms Croft. A combination of brainpower, reflexes, and sheer skill are required to complete them. Some of them can be infuriating but that's part of the fun of it. And after solving them, you feel a great sense of satisfaction prior to what's around the corner.

After the disappointing The Last Revelation and the truly execrable Angel of Darkness, Lara has made a grand comeback as one of gaming's greatest stars. With improved controls, huge levels, more organic (and at times seemingly complex puzzles) and just great fun, Legend is the best out of them all. If your new to the franchise or just want to play a good adventure game, then Tomb Raider: Legend is a treasure worth seeking.
