Tomb Raider Legends.
Well, it is quite an really handsome game. The grafics are really nice, you get many moments to just catch some off them (if you turn on the Next Generation Graphics). But the game is kinda short and the Ending is, neverthenless, really frustrating. It feels like there should be explained more about it. I don´t want to spoiled to much at this point.
a. Finally Lara get some sidekicks
By having the sidekicks, which constantly talkes to her, Lara can show more personality as in the Tomb Raider CLassic Series
b. Pretty easy inventory
Well, Lara get her pistols and she can pick up any other weapon. Thats it. It makes the Game pretty easy and not much complicated. This give the game an really decent gameflow.
c. Nice battlesystem
The new battlesystem of TRL allows you to make some awesome moves, which are helpful, (I played om the highest difficulty) and makes the game a little bit more strategic (as TR can be :)
Well, every single battle (95% of them) are against other people. There are no nostalgic enemys or fantasy enemys like in the Tomb Raider Classics, and this is actually a sad thing for me. Also, the game lacks sometimes with bugs. There are really rare, but if they appear, it sucks. Not many of them, but they are there.
Also, I don´t like all those secrets. which are really everywhere. To much secrets. Really. I mean, sure, it is awesome to collect some of them to reveal awesome stuff like Artworks etc. but 15 Secrets in on single level? Nah.
Well. Tomb Raider Legend is a good game. I will play it again, for sure, but it does not give me the kicks to play it over and over. For TR-Fans, Play it, to see a bit of Lara´s History before SquareEnix decices to make a Reboot. Buy it. (y)
