    Empowering, even if it’s just a game…, December 7, 2006

    Greetings, all. I will preface this to say I have not ever played the previous Tomb Raider games, so I do not have enough knowledge to compare the finer details of each game. That being said, I am really hooked on this game! I usually prefer easier games (if you read my other reviews you’d know this), but I guess we all have to grow up sometime. 😉 I bought this as an early birthday present for myself and I have not been disappointed since – I find myself staying up til 12am trying to “save the world” or at least raid the tomb du jour.

    Love the scenery – the background music can get monotonous at times, but for the most part, it’s well-suited. My only complaint there is that I can so hear “Who Wants to Live Forever” (Queen) in some instances (but licensing, you know…) 🙂

    This game provides quite a challenge for those of us 30-somethings who USED to be great at (our generation’s equivalent of) these games. I have not yet finished the game – I am 1/2 way through. I will openly admit to seeking out a very good “walk through” on the internet because I could not figure some things out. (A little help never hurts). I gave it “4 stars” for fun because it IS quite challenging and (on my game) Lara finds herself deceased more often than not LOL. It gets frustrating, but that just makes the successes sweeter.

    I find this game not only a challenge, but inspiring and yeah, maybe a bit empowering to us girls out there. 😉 It’s rather funny but now everytime I look at the world a bit differently now – if I see something to grab onto somewhere like a ledge, I think “HEY! If I were Lara Croft, I’d climb up on that!” LOL

    Tomb Raider: Legend is the first Tomb Raider game on a Nintendo console, and happens to be the first Tomb Raider game I’ve ever played. I read about the game for a while, and decided to try it out now that it’s (finally) come to the Gamecube. I could write a REALLY lengthy review describing all the facets of the gameplay, but for that kind of detailed info I would suggest going to IGN and watching their video review. I will say some things though.

    Despite not being as powerful as other consoles, TR: Legend looks great on the Gamecube. My only complaint is that the game is very dark sometimes, and for whatever reason, there is no option to adjust the brightness in this version. The music and sounds are good and fit their environments. The voice acting especially impressed me – it’s really well done and helps to flesh out the characters, esp Lara. (some of the dialogue is very clever too) The story is simple, but it works.

    As you explore the different locals and progress in the story, you are gonna be doing a lot of running, jumping, rope/wall climbing, puzzle solving, dodging traps, shooting bad guys, etc. The acrobatic parts of the game remind me of the Prince of Persia trilogy, albeit not quite as fluid. (don’t get me wrong, it all works great though) In the game you will also be treated to some interactive cut-scenes (similar to Resident Evil 4), which were very fun.

    The game has 3 modes of difficulty (easy, normal, and hard), so no matter how good you are at games, you will be able to enjoy this. Some of the puzzles may stump you, but not so much that you will want to give up. For the average gamer I would say the game is about 10-15 hours in length. I’m a veteran gamer and it took me about 12 hours or so to beat the main game.

    Even after you beat the game, there’s plenty to do. You can replay the levels after you beat them, and continue searching for the bronze/silver/gold statues hidden throughout the levels that you may have missed the first time through. Finding these unlocks bonus content like artwork, character profiles, and outfits for Lara. There is also a Time Trial for each level – beating those is a greater challenge that will earn you even more extras. There is also a “bonus” level that has you searching for treasures in the Croft Mansion. Getting all the extras will easily add a few hours more to the game.

    Wow, I didn’t really intend to write so much, but I just really enjoyed this game. At a budget price there’s no reason to pass this up. Go pick up Tomb Raider: Legend on the Gamecube. Hopefully if enough people do, Eidos will continue to make Tomb Raider games for Nintendo platforms, which is what I’m hoping for.

    Now I Know Why So Many Geeks Love Lara, November 2, 2007

    This review is from: Tomb Raider: Legend (Video Game)

    I’ve just joined the legion. And it’s not just because the character redesign is absolutely beautiful (less about Lara’s famous chest and more about her appearance as a whole). Lara Croft also has that sexy British accent, plus, she’s clever, funny, and physically strong while still being totally feminine. The type of gal you take home to mom.

    She’s also incredibly athletic, something that comes in handy during the gameplay of “Tomb Raider: Legend.” As this is my first Tomb Raider game, I have no way of comparing it to the other games in the series. As it is, gameplay consists largely of performing gymnastic feats while scaling mountains and hanging from cliffs. This actually takes a lot of thought, as it sometimes requires process of elimination to plan Lara’s next move as she hangs from a ledge, possibly leaping to her death several times before finding the next foothold or handhold.

    Battles with enemies also make use of Lara’s gymnastic abilities. While locked on to a target, Lara can perform cartwheels, summersaults, and flips through the air to dodge bullets while returning fire with a series of weapons. But most of the game consists of wall climbing, cliff diving, and solving puzzles based on moving objects and manipulating items. Even certain bosses require more thought than simple running-and-gunning.

    Anyone who still isn’t convinced that this is more than a simple actioner merely has to enter “Croft Manor”, a bonus game available through the options menu, and try to solve the riddles there to give their brain a workout.

    Lara also has a series of tools to assist her. These include a pair of special binoculars and a magnetic grapple hook. The binoculars can be used to analyze the environment and provide hints to solve the puzzles, while the grappling hook can be used to swing across chasms, move distant objects, or even attack enemies. Of course, the similarities to Indiana Jones’ whip make it obvious where the material is drawn from, but fans of the genre shouldn’t mind.

    Lara even has a headset that allows her to communicate with two sidekicks. Of course, this is part of the recent video game convention of having someone hiss orders at you the whole time, but here it actually works. Lara has two sidekicks, a hip American gadget expert and a whiney British historian. Rather than boss Lara around, the two sidekicks offer encouraging hints, but mainly provide someone for Lara to exchange witty banter with and serve as comic relief.

    Several sequences also require the player to interact with cinematics, pressing buttons as they flash on the screen to save Lara from terrible fates. These are somewhat exciting, but overall a little too easy, and if they remain a feature in future games will have to be better perfected. There are also a couple of motorcycling levels that add some variety to the gameplay.

    The graphics are glorious, and not just the new Lara Croft design. Environments are eye-catching as well. The voice acting is also very well done. Keeley Hawes’ voice suits the title character very well, while Kath Soucie, of “Rugrats” fame, plays the antagonist, a blonde, American ex-colleague of Lara’s gone bad. The orchestral score and camera angles also add to the cinematic feel of the game.

    Lara’s main quest throughout the game is to collect shattered fragments of Excalibur and solve the disappearance of her mother that took place when she was a young girl, but with extra effort Lara can also uncover artifacts which will unlock special features and new costumes for the Tomb Raider. Levels can be returned to at any time to recover more artifacts. Once a level is completed, there’s also an option to replay it with a time limit. This provides the game with at least a small amount of replayability.

    As much fun as the game is, it, like so many games, falls apart at the end, and not just because the storyline is left open for a possible sequel. The last couple of missions and puzzles and the final boss fight are far too easy, even anticlimactic. However, as my introduction to Lara Croft, Tomb Raider, “Legend” was well worth playing.
