The most famous gal in video games, Lara Croft (sorry Princess Peach), is back! She's been a video game superstar for 10 years now and has had the one and only Angelina Jolie play her in two movies. But, ever since her first game dropped, the sequels have been lamer and lamer. So, how does the new Tomb Raider: Legend rate? We took it for a spin on the PC, PS2, Xbox and Xbox 360 to bring you this game review!

Action and Adventure with Lara Croft

This game puts you in control of Lara Croft, an action hero with a side order of nerd. She needs your help to run, jump, climb, swim, fight, and puzzle-solve her way past bad guys and through some of the most dangerous (and places in the world. With eight levels, freaky monsters, five bosses and a motorcycle for some high-speed chases, there's a lot to do in Lara's new game!

Treasure and Excitement in Tomb Raider: Legend

In the old Tomb Raider video games, Lara moved like a spastic wooden puppet. In Tomb Raider: Legend she gets her groove back with a heap of smooth moves! She needs them for the massive boss battles and action-packed levels. She also has a load of gadgets to play with, including a wicked grappling hook.

Deadly Traps and Obstacles in Tomb Raider: Legend

Even though Lara Croft has new moves in her new game, she still has problems. The biggest is that it's not a very long game, if you have serious gaming skills you can finish it in a weekend and still have time to do your chores. The motorcycle levels are ho-hum as well, and some of her funky gear doesn't work all that well.

Tomb Raider: Legend - Treasure or Trash?

This game isn't just a fun game for Lara Croft fans, it's fun for everybody! The action is fast, the puzzles keep you thinking and the story will keep you playing to find out what's coming next. It has some problems, but the bottom line is that Lara Croft is fun again!
