Tomb Raider comeback!

Lara Croft is back! Eidos has announced the release of the seventh instalment of the Tomb Raider franchise with Tomb Raider: Legend for the PS2, PC, Xbox and Xbox 360. Set in a number of ruins and tombs around the world in locations such as Bolivia, Peru and the Himalayas, "Legend" features a new movement system for Lara that is much more fluid. "Legend" is now debuting at number one in the official UK games charts!

"Tomb Raider legend is the fastest selling game of 2006 because it is such great fun to play and we are confident it will continue to sell and sell," said Scott Dodkins, managing director of Eidos in Europe.

"The first lady of video gaming has well and truly returned."

It took a while to get used to the new movement system (previous games didn't require a mouse), but personally I think this is the best in the series - although the first, original, one is quite a bit different so comparison isn't that simple.Great graphics, good audio, easy handling (what couldn't be said about Angel of Darkness), the plot so far is ok. I just don't really like Lara's friends much, and that checkpoint saving system could be more flexible.
