to the July issue of Electronic Gaming Monthly
(hereafter referred to in this article as EGM),
Legend may well debut on Microsoft's Xbox
360 console, having been moved from the 'heavily
rumoured' category by EGM to 'in the works'. Of
course this could simply be a
rouse to sell more magazines since the Xbox
360 is backwards compatible and would support
Tomb Raider: Legend anyway, but EGM's claims do
have a ring of feasibility about them.
Croft (hereafter referred to in this article as
Still Game) is now under the care of acclaimed
Soul Reaver developers Crystal Dynamics and bared
all at this year's E3
Expo in Los Angeles, albeit behind closed
doors. Still Game showcased a higher polygon count,
sported new moves and endorsed Eidos' claims of
restoring the original properties of Lara Croft
as ardent Tomb Raider - procurer of all things
ancient - much to the delight of fans of the series.
Croft architect Toby Gard, now back working on
Tomb Raider: Legend at Crystal Dynamics, used
E3 as a forum to announce a shiny new control
system and promised to restore faith back into
a title he helped develop at Core Design in 1996.
is currently being assimilated by UK rival SCi
Entertainment Group, and has understandably battened
down the hatches while a period of incubation,
reformation, rejuvenation, and other 'ations happen
