Whether this is your first or ninth adventure with Lara, it is one you won’t soon forget. With perfect controls, intuitive gameplay, stunning graphics, majestic music, and a totally engaging story, this is the type of adventure game Legends are made of.
Este jogo foi o meu favorito da franquia desde então. Sua narrativa é empolgante por trazer emoções a personagem e uma motivação mais profunda que simplesmente procurar relíquias mágicas.
A gameplay foi muito evolutiva em relação ao seu antecessor (Angel Of Darkness), exatamente por trazer de volta as pistolas duplas, incrementar a interação com objetos de cenário durante os combates e seu novíssimo gancho magnético. Este último, aumenta as possibilidades de puzzles mais complexos e divertidos, como também funciona para determinadas situações de perigo.
A Lara está menos "quadrada" que de costume, e agora seus movimentos são mais fluídos. Suas acrobacias estão no auge, com variações de mortais e movimentos atléticos.
Os cenários são maravilhosos. Em todos os níveis visitamos um país diferente, aumentando ainda mais a imersão daquelas histórias de aventura onde é preciso dar a volta ao mundo para alcançar seu objetivo.
Os inimigos não são tão inteligentes, você pode jogar no difícil (Tomb Raider, como está nomeado) sem nenhum problema. Em resumo ao restante, a trilha sonora é agradável, gráficos bons para sua época, duração razoável e história bela e emocionante.
Se estiver buscando por tesouros, em vez de invadir uma tumba, procure por Tomb Raider Legend.
If you can ignore the sloppy motorbike sequences and often unsatisfying combat, you'll have no trouble fitting into Lara's skimpy outfits and immersing yourself in the most enjoyable action-adventure on the Xbox 360 to date.
Most importantly, the puzzles are back on track. Traps, levers, pulleys, chains, chasms, secret passges, underground lakes, rotating knives — there’s a cunning solution to each, designed to keep you puzzling for just long enough to gain satisfaction in the solving, but not long enough to make you want to hurl your own internal organs at the screen.
It took me just under 8 hours to complete 90% of the game, and it's not a terrible stretch to imagine someone rushing through it in 5 or 6. It's a good sign for a game when players want more, and it's further proof that the Tomb Raider series is back in a big way.
A good return to the roots of the series. It doesn't do anything new or different, but it has a great blend of action and adventure that will always keep you moving and interested. The problem is that it moves a bit too fast, and it's all over way too soon.
The graphics are old-school blocky, the puzzles are tired and many of the acrobatic moves are straight out of other games before it, most notably "Prince of Persia," but also even older "Indiana Jones" titles.
Tomb Raider: Legend was my 2006 game of the year (pause for applause). After years of not being a player of the action/adventure genre, that Lara now belongs to along with Mr Drake, Batman and some scruffy Prince of Persia, I really enjoyed this game. I thought the gameplay was great (apart from camera issues, key to the genre) but I went back and played through the levels again trying to achieve gold medals, something I rarely do in games but I found the flowing movement and level design of a real high standard. The story really got me, to me she was after the ultimate artefact and that's what this character was all about. Overall I think this is the 360 must own outing of Lara Croft, the game misses out on a ten by being too short, although it was good design that I wanted to go back and play again the fact is I craved more of this game and other titles, that mastered the genre with this generations hardware, showed more could have been done. It was for me the most engaging game of 2006.
Lara gets a makeover for the next generation and the result is a smoother, glossier and prettier adventure in a similar but more polished mould to the previous instalments. Surpassed in every way by the Uncharted games on the PS3, but if you don't own one then this is a decent enough substitute.
This is a decent game. Graphics are okay but could be better for its time.
What this game suffers from is bad controls and frantic dumb camera angles. Sometimes they just annoys you enough you want to quit in frustration. Combat is simplistic, puzzles are decent but not to challenging..
Has too much of a PG-13 feel. The story is simple and boring, and Lara is just some generic and unlikeable woman, like all the other characters in the game. The game would have also been much more enjoyable if Lara didn't have annoying voices from another pair of unlikeable and boring characters talking to her through a radio frequently. Like in the original games, where it was just Lara and her lonely adventures. Really helped the atmosphere much more...which was also better in the originals.
