Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Legend (2006)
Lara returns to ghosts past as she attempts to recover pieces of a sword that killed her mother when Lara was a girl.
This is a good, entertaining game marred by shoddy technical issues. Almost every death (even on the hardest difficulty which I played it on) comes from these issues including the camera angle changing the effects of your directional buttons, frame-rate problems causing unresponsive face buttons and an auto-lock-on system which frequently targets off-screen, out-of-range elements. The inconsistent frame rate spoils the visuals but it generally looks pretty good, especially Miss Croft herself (my favourite outfit to play in is the ripped red evening dress), and the special smoke, water, explosion and lighting effects are terrific. Special mention for an unusual and highly welcome time trial mode which challenges you to get through each cleared level within a certain time. I’d like to see that on all suitable games.
