Tomb Raider: Legend demo

Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

Now, this Lara Croft is the Tomb Raider we remember! After a few lackluster adventures and a three-year absence, the brassy British heroine has finally returned, with more polygons and a brand-new game engine. The demo tosses Lara onto the cliffs of Bolivia, where she must use her wits, reflexes, and guns to retrieve a mysterious artifact. With impressive graphics and plenty of areas to jump, climb, and swing through, this demo is a must try for all adventure fans with the necessary system requirements.

The combat system is more advanced than in previous games. Though you still aim via automatic lock-on, Lara can now move around as she shoots, dancing and dodging bullets. She can also destroy specific parts of the environment that will crush enemies when timed correctly. Along with her new combat abilities, Lara has a few new gymnastic moves, including the ability to scamper along ledges, swing in full 3D, and move objects anywhere in the level.

Even though the demo only includes one level, it's a generous amount of content that allows for exploration, fighting, and basic puzzle solving. The graphics are tremendous--Lara has never looked better--and though camera angles are always an issue in third-person games, we rarely found ourselves stuck in corners. If you're a fan of the original or any of the sequels, this demo is well worth the download.
