  1. Indeed, so much of what was an otherwise quality adventure has been lost in the transition, this is more like a book of the film where half of the pages have been torn out. Avoid.
  2. These levels weren't meant to be played from a fixed perspective, and the addition of several brutal bugs makes for a painful portable experience.
  3. Enough venom. Don’t buy the DS version of Tomb Raider Legend.
