 Lara makes her way onto next-generation.

So, here we are with Lara's first adventure onto the Xbox 360. It proves pretty good and you'll notice some bits look much better on this console than the other consoles. Tomb Raider: Legend on the Xbox 360 proves that she will keep on exploring tombs in the future.

Learning the controls is easy and shouldn't take that long. In Bolivia (the first environment) you should pick up some moves from the tutorial such as jumping, swinging and grappling. You'll also be facing enemies bigger than your house and dozens of men. Tomb Raider is all about climbing and working out how to progress through the level. You'll need to work out how far it takes to jump from one ledge to another. The puzzles will probably puzzle you at first but after a while you should get the hang of them. Boss battles are good as each one is different. You don't just keep shooting the boss until they die. You will need to work out how you can destroy the boss. Like for example, one boss requires you to drop cages on its head in England.

The environments are impressive. I think the hot environments look the best. When you play through the first environment you'll probably be amazed to see how they have evolved. My favourite environments are Bolivia, Ghana and Nepal. You won't be avoiding traps and enemies in tombs all throughout the game, though. One level set in Japan will have Lara Croft in a totally different style. There is one level I do remember in Tomb Raider II where she had her own mansion. This is where you could practice your moves and climbing skills. Well, in Tomb Raider: Legend there is an enormous manor. There are loads of rooms to explore (and some hidden too). The swimming pool looks very pretty and in general, the whole manor looks outstanding. If only it was real?

The main differences in terms of graphics (compared to the other console games) is the water. It just appears more realistic and you will come to notice that in Bolivia. Of course, Lara is looking great on this game too. She seems more tanned and whenever you see her face close up you should notice more detail in there. Some of the costumes you unlock will also feature sunglasses which are exclusive to next-generation versions of the game only. Other notable differences include the walls and floors of the tombs. There is much more moss and weeds growing out and more details can be notice on the walls. Reflections are superb too and it's great to make it more realistic by reflecting the sun from the ground.

If you have not played Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Legend yet then I highly recommend you do. I think you'll enjoy it as a Tomb Raider or no Tomb Raider fan. If you have played the PlayStation 2, Xbox or GameCube version of this game then don't expect to much difference. Of course, you'll see even better environments on this version but that's about it. There are also many achievements you can try and get. This includes you playing through all the time trials and going through the levels on "Tomb Raider" difficulty. You are looking at less than ten hours of gameplay here. It may take you a bit longer depending on whether or not you can solve the puzzles. Some of them left me puzzled for quite a while. Some may say ten hours is a bit short and I agree. You may probably play through some of the environments again to get 100% and for the achievements. I suggest playing on at least normal difficulty. Easy is a bit too easy I think.

Great game that shows how Lara performs on next-generation. Hopefully she'll continue to grow for generations to come.

 Tomb raider has changed alot since my day..shes stil fit tho

And if i ever meet a girl like lara croft i will be sure to get her as drunk as possible to have my wicked way. Only to give her breakfast in bed the next morning and show her how much of a gentlemen i really am, just because she's such an amazing girl personality wise aswel lol.

But honestly though, this game is really not like the first tomb raider on the ps1. I played that and tomb raider 3 on the ps1. So I seen this an thought hmm yer may aswell go for this it'll make me feel about 13 again. Did it? No.. it feels too updated.

Don't get me wrong, the concept of trying to work out what to do when your confind in a room with no way out of it leaving you wondering why you ventured into the room in the first place is still there. But the feel of lara as you move her beautiful body around the game is totally different. For me the way it felt on ps1 where she would run into a wall then put her hands over her ears for some unknown reason, felt better than it does now on 360. And to be honest them games had more quality feel to them. It's like a game of chess, what the game is made out of like the materials are simple enough, but how you actually play the game is more interesting and thats what gives it its long time being around, as was the case with tomb raider 1. This game doesn't have that at all.

Also in parts it feels rushed, like the developers didnt have that much time to put into certain parts and you get a feel of that when you're playing through the game.

But in its own right as its own game, aside from being our lara in tomb raider, its still a good game. Just doesn't really live upto the legendary series as it is known to be today.

However, these views are just mine and I am of an older generation of gamers now, but you might agree. Anyway I don't mind the fact I spent time on this, and if I could go back in time and talk too myself, I would reccomend it too myself aswel.

So go for it, its a good game, but not really tomb raider as it was.

 Not great, but worth buying

This is my first Tomb Raider game, and it really makes me want to get Anniversary when the 360 version launches.

The game has a variety of levels, set in many interesting locations rather than the expected tombs.
I especially enjoyed the motorbike section, and the fork-lift truck. The boses are fun, but a bit easy, and there are only 5 spread across 9 levels.

The only negative is that sometimes it is far from obvious what you have to do to progress, and checkpoints are sometimes too widely spaced.

The game loses a star for being short. Easily completed in 16hours, and that was taking it slowly. A player who has experience with Tomb raider could do it in under 10.

The graphics, and gameplay are first class, with the occassional glitch but nothing major if you have played through CoD3 then in comparison Legend is bug free.

The ending hints at a sequel, which I hope comes soon.

 Lara at her best.

Tomb Raider: Legend is one of the best gmes in the series in my opinion. The level designs are spectacular ranging from Bolivia to Japan. The puzzles are well desiged and the combat is good. I would recommend doing this game on Hard mode as it really isn't that hard, just really fun to play. Legend is much better than Underworld and if you are lookin for a fun Platformer with easy achievements then this is the game for you.

 Not Worth Buying
