  1. A really enjoyable adventure with thrilling acrobatics, spectacular locations and satisfying rewards. [January 2007, p.66]
  2. Crystal Dynamics has accomplished the impossible. Lara is back in our good graces and we can't wait to see how her next adventure unfolds. We never thought we'd say that again, but times change.
  3. Despite a few rough edges, I can say something I haven't been able to say in nearly a decade: I'm actually looking forward to the next Tomb Raider game.
  4. Tomb Raider: Legend is a very good action adventure game on the GameCube, which makes it all the more disappointing that it ends so quickly.
  5. Still, Legend is a breath of fresh air for Tomb Raider fans, and a solid GCN debut for Ms. Croft. [Jan. 2007, p.116]

    It won't be heralded a classic but it is certainly a welcome return to form for a franchise that was beginning to appear languid and certainly promises a lot for Crystal Dynamics' next game which is a reinvention of the original Tomb Raider.

    Pretty good game, but nothing incredible. After so many Tomb Raider games, this is the same as always. There are some enemies, some interesting puzzles and some cool scenarios. Also, you learn some new things about Lara if you're a big fan of the story. Full Review »
