I bought this game along with the other Tomb Raiders that were released on the 7th generation when they went on sale and they've all been sitting in my backlog since. Finally got around to playing one of them. This was my first Tomb Raider game since the PlayStation 1 era. I have not played a TR game since The Last Revelation or Chronicles, until now. It was nice to go back to a franchise that I was always a fan of, but for one reason or another, just stepped away from. I guess Tomb Raider games just didn't rank as being high priority games for me anymore.

    Anyway, I thought it was pretty decent game. It definitely felt like I was playing a Tomb Raider game. Interesting story too. However, I do have some negative things to say about it. It was very short. There were only about 7 or 8 levels and they weren't long levels either. If anything, some of the puzzles (the ones that weren't so obvious to figure out), the motorcycle parts, and the cutscenes made up the bulk of the game's length. The controls were a little awkward as well. Not as bad the original games' controls, but there were times where I struggled just a little bit. The game was very linear. It was the same set-up every time. Follow a set path, solve some sort of big puzzle, and face a boss at the end. Graphics weren't the best, either. Then again, it was a much older 360 game. Overall, not a spectacular game but not terrible either. I'm surprised this game got as much praise as it did. It's good, but it's not THAT good. I don't know, maybe playing it now instead of back then wasn't going to produce the same effect. The game probably feels dated now compared to when it first released. Not to mention, I don't have Angel of Darkness to compared it to, which I know was a complete failure and got the franchise taken away from Core Design. Under those circumstances, maybe my opinion might have been different.

    Well, as stated before, I have the other Tomb Raider games. I might just jump straight into Underworld since that's a direct sequel to Legend and is apparently about the same length or slightly longer. If that's the case, might as well knock it out now.

    • This was actually a late Gen 6 game :D along with Gun, Hitman: Blood Money, and a few others.

    • True, but all those games were also released for the Xbox 360. Perhaps they were merely HD ports, which would explain the unimpressive graphics.

    Are the Anniversary Episodes on Tomb Raider: Legend exactly the same as the Full game of Tomb Raider: Anniversary?

    • It is kind of stupid.... I only have Legend with both DLCs... so I get to play Anniversary but only get 200 G for it.

    • The problem with that is, that TR Anniversay was actually planned only as DLC for Legend before. But when Legend got a lot of good reviews and became kind of 'saviour of whole TR franchise', Eidos Interactive re-worked their plans, so they published TR:A as whole disc game ... and put this later also as DLC for Legend.

    It's so weird that they would make ANNIVERSARY a DLC. Why?

    • It's just marketing. There's a lot of people complaining about short DLC and stuff, so a full game as DLC would really worth the money, don't you think?

    • Yeah, but if it's for about the same money... and you can't have 100% on LEGEND if you don't get the DLC...

      In my country, you actually can't even buy the DLC on the marketplace. If there weren't for my fake US account, I would never even be able to get a 100%.

      I would probably understand, if the DLC included an older game, like one of the first Tomb Raiders... something you can't get in any other way.

    Freaking game beaten! 1000/1000. Well, 1000/1250 actually. But I'm starting on DLC ANNIVERSARY tomorrow. Completed two time trials and three levels on HARD today... and it will be nice NOT to see Lara for a few hours.

    • Yeah, the DLC isn't on XBL Marketplace in my country. I had to log in with my fake American account and buy it through that.
