It took me a while to finish, but I'm a middle-aged gamer with slow reflexes. ;-) I liked the platforming and puzzle-solving. The shooting was a bit more awkward, although the target-lock feature helped. The graphics were quite nice and the environments varied and interesting to look at. Once or twice I was totally stuck and had to look up online how to move forward. Most of the time, however, it was relatively easy to figure out what to do next. I found the boss battles annoyingly difficult as they rely heavily on split-second timing and accurate aiming, but it was very satisfying to finally beat them! The story made almost no sense, but that was partly because I would go months between play sessions and couldn't remember what had happened. Also, I've read there's a backstory about a plane crash that supposedly takes place when the game opens (?), but I don't recall anything about that. Maybe it was just referred to in dialogue? So it has some flaws, but it was still enjoyable game play. I'd buy another Lara Croft game on the strength of this one.
While it is no secret that I prefer the newest remakes of Tomb Raider, this game and Underworld are very solid entries into the series. This game itself was the first of the earlier remakes which had very improved graphics and a lot of new elements added to gameplay and is worth the price on sale or off. The only real gripe I have about the game is one of my pet peeves in video gaming: timed button pressing. Since it doesn't happen a lot and they are actually pretty manageable, I decided it didn't warrant me deducting a star for it though I came close.
Tomb Raider: Legend is the seventh adventures of the famous lady archaeologist, Lara Croft. It was released in 2006. This is one of the simpler Tomb Raiders, but it is cool nevertheless. One of the interesting features was being able to play as young Lara while being in Peru. Despite its age Legend still offers beautiful graphics and interesting story. I have gone through this part a lot and would recommend it as much.
This game was a great return of Tomb Raider. After series of average at best games, this one was strong in gameplay department, with good graphics and soundtrack and nice envintormental puzzles that really made you think. Worst part of this game, though, is lenght, it's barely 5 hours long, which is a shame, because it feels more like a demo or tease rather than full game. Good start of new trilogy and for this price it's strongly recommended, because it is a lot of fun to play and still nice game to look at.
While this is a great entry in the Tomb Raider franchise, I really didn't go for the time trials that you needed to complete to get all the unlockable content. It made an already short game feel even shorter once you realized you could finish the entire game in like 2-3 hours. I also felt like this game had far less combat and far more puzzles than normal. I believe this was the first Tomb Raider game to start using the grappling hook, as well as adding in quick time events. The levels, though few in number, were creative, my favorite being King Arthur's Tomb and the boss fight against the sea serpent. It's a great game for speed runners, but it has far less replay value than other TR games if you don't like to race through levels.
