I really do like Tomb Raider Legend. Obviously I hate its boss fights, and clearly I’m not so stupid as to enjoy the QTE nonsense that occasionally infects it. But it was such a treat to see Lara brought back to life, once more in a world tailor-made for her personal jumping distance, in a way remarkably faithful to the game’s triumphant early releases. And even more so, with its surprising sense of humour. And so it is that
“It’s exquisitely British, too. When realising that the clues (oh yes ‘the plot’ well, Lara’s friend Amanda didn’t die when she thought she did, and there’s this sword in bits, and something about Lara’s mum, and so on) are taking them from their exotic worldwide locations to, well, Cornwall, Lara replies, ‘As in, take the M5 to the A30, Cornwall?’”
I also had a bit of an insane post-boss fight rant which didn’t make it into the final edit, that I’ve put below.
The PS3 will get a Tomb Raider trilogy comprised of high-definition re-releases of of Tomb Raider Legend and Tomb Raider Anniversary, plus Tomb Raider Underworld, says a senior executive with the studio that made the games.
Karl Stewart, the global brand director for Crystal Dynamics, confirmed via Twitter that a German Amazon.com listing for the trilogy is legitimate. "Yes, it's official. #TombRaider PS3 'Trilogy' pack coming in the new year. Full details next week. Watch this space."
Joystiq noticed the German listing earlier today. The trilogy's listing gave March 22 as a delivery date, and says that all three games will offer trophy support. The collector's edition will unlock male and female avatars for use in PlayStation Home.
