  Lara at her best!

| | See all blueduststars's reviews (5)

Given it the full stars to bring up the overall score as this is by far the best lara game I've played so far. Much more user friendly controls than some of the earlier ones and great backround music too.The cinematic shots give a real in-game experience, all-in-all? Well worth it!!!!

  Best Tomb Raider In My Opinion!

| | See all Gamer15's reviews (25)

I'd say that Legend is probably the best Tomb Raider game in the series so far, but I've yet to play Anniversary and Underworld, so I can't really judge...
The graphics are so good and fluid, the enemy AI is superb, and the environments are some of the most detailed I've seen in a Third-Person game so far! The only thing stopping this game from getting a five-star, is the fact that this game has very fiddly and complicated controls. Apart from that, the game has brilliant replay value, and offers a very cinematic and rewarding storyline filled with all sorts of twists and turns. Best Tomb Raider game ever!

  A breath of fresh air into the stale Action/adventure genre

Gameplay -Flawless and smooth gameplay, nice physics based puzzles.

Graphics -Amazing enviroments that are bursting with life. Very detailed.

Sound -Very cinematic, you'll want to listen to the music over and over again.

Value - Loads of unlockables & secrets, lots of replay value.


Tomb Raider Legend is highly recommended for any type of gamer, there is action, adventure, exploration, humour & puzzles. The dialog is very funny in a good way, the interactive cutscenes are really fun and great too. There are 3 different dificulties, and tons of unlockables in every level. The ending is very intense & is really good, no cliff hanger. :)

  Great comeback from the first lady of video gaming!

The best gaming comeback ever. Lara comes back from the dead after the disaster that was Angel of Darkness with Tomb Raider: Legend. It's also the first game new developers Crystal Dynamics made after Code Design got canned by pubishers Eidos & Tomb Raider's creator Toby Gard from what I heard. And what a great game this is, it improved the gameplay big time and also the graphics. The much needed good controls are here (One of the reasons Angel of Darkness failed is cause of it's terrible controls) and also the storyline in this is just fantastic, Crystal Dynamics really did a good job with this game & also Anniversary.

So in collision this is an awesome game that reborn Lara Croft out of the grave and back to her old roots again. Simply unforgettable.

  Fustrating fun, beautiful constructed - A bargain

I'm not really into role playing adventure games, but I really enjoyed Tomb Raider Legend. There is no multiplayer or scoreboards and this is the only game I know of on the X360 that doesn't have any online features.

Graphically the game is OK, in HD it really doesn't compare to games made more recently and exclusively for Xbox 360 but they certainly aren't poor. The music is fantastic and full of bass and mystery, better still is the level design.

Also there is a first as far as I am aware in gaming as during cut scenes you need to stay alrert and control movements or face the chop which is great as it is quite cutscene heavy so it makes you pay attention to the great story

Although some of the puzzles are a bit frustrating (you'll be scouring the internet for a walkthough) the levels look gorgeous and the tombs and jungles and Tokyo all great.

Lara's new less 'busty' look isn't really noticable, but the Croft Manner level is straight from the movie and is really very good. Gun play is good as are lara's moves to get up and over things or dodging in gunfights

With regard to gamer points its an easy 700 for simply finishing the game on medium making an effort to collect the bronze silver and gold awards availble in levels.

Fantastic Game, amazing graphics and very good story line. as a tomb raider fan this is no doubt one of the best made for video graphics. Earning the achievements makes it more fun, as you are forced to do quest and special moves to get them in the Lara Croft Manor, making it intresting and fun, and brain bashing.

Very Enoyable and well worth keeping.

Enjoy !!!

  Solid platforming action

After the spell of dodgy Tomb Raider releases, the series comes back to its glory days with Legend.

What you get for a very reasonable price is a well polished game, providing a good few hours of fun filled gameplay.
