From all the Tomb Raider games, this one is my personal most favourite! I have played the game before I had Steam account, when I got Steam account and I even have the game in Box DVD version.
I love everything.
Really.
This is the first Tomb Raider that I play it with such a joy and happiness.
The model of Lara Croft is gorgeous! Many years after the release, she looks amazing! When you enter water and come outside, she will be wet and will dry in time, but the effect is awesome! Her outfits are cute and they fit her body perfectly!
She is really a strong woman, because of her skills and great mind! This is how real women should look like. She is deadly and if you are a bad person, she will put you in the right place.

The level design of the game is awesome!
From jungle terrain, to village in the desert to the snowly mountains and underground caves- there is much variety.
Some of the puzzels could be challenging to you, if you are new to the game, but overall, they are not hard, and they are enjoyable so you will have fun with them!
Climb, run, jump, shoot- you will do everything!

Nothing is more badass than riding a motor-bike on top of skyscrapers.

The sounds and the music is in very high level. Your ears and brain will like them very much.
The environment is awesome and you can interact with it to achieve your goals.
There are hidden and not so hidden artefacts in the game and collectables for you to find and collect.

I would gladly play this game many more times in the future!

I think the game looks better with next gen content off. You can go in and delete the keyboard mappings and leave controller mappings to fix tutorial text. No achievements or steam overlay. A variety of costumes are available for unlock during stage replaying.

It's a nice throwback to ye old days. Wish more good old console games got Steam ports.

Sure everybody says anniversary was better. This was the game that introduced me to the tomb raider series. I was very satisfied as a child because I completed such difficult puzzles. I loved the moments too. There were bike chase scenes, moments where water was flooding a cave or something. Overall, I really liked the game. The graphics were really nice too. Oh, and Lara. :D

This is my 2nd playthrough or TR Legend, I did so to get in the flow for playing the latter 2 installments in the trilolgy that are Anniversary and Underworld.

Pros:
- Intuitive puzzles
- Lara's witty one-liners
- Varied locations
- Immersive music
- Lara's boobs are good sized (ie compared to them in TR reboot)

Cons:
- Lousy camera angles. This issue haunts virtually every TR games to this point, and Legends is no exception.
- Trial and error platforming, primarily due to the above
- Zip and Alister can be annoying
- Relatively short duration per location
- Final boss fight consists of more button-mashing than strategy.

All in all, this is a good entry point for anyone who hasn't played TR games before.
