Raider Legend has earned a rather sterling
review from those rather fine folk over at Official

to go by. The team appear to have laid their mittens
on a much sought after demo, and have this to
say on the pixelated Goddess now under the surgeons
knife at Crystal Dynamics.
Croft blows us away. We always dreamt it
would be like this. Tomb Raider Legend arrives
in the office, and it's unbelievably good. Stepping
out into the sun-kissed buffs high on a Mayan
mountain, she strutted forth. Our jaws? Floor-bound.
Her majesty was a total shock - we had to check

is a formidable Lara, one who's tough and adventurous,
with responsive and natural animation. She looks
real, or at least as real as a GC lady can be,
as she traverses treasure troves using new adventure
gear. The story has her chasing after a famous
mythical artifact, although the item's identity
is a secret being guarded by the developers."
Raider Legend has been tentatively slated for
release during the opening quarter of 2006. The
game will simultaneously release on PC DVD, Microsoft
Xbox and Sony Playstation 2. Later incursions
onto Xbox 360 and PSP have been confirmed by Eidos.
