PSM2 MAGAZINE DIGS INTO TOMB RAIDER

[ December 30th 2005 ]

Those fine bastions of print media over at Official Playstation 2 magazine have managed to procure a playable version of Tomb Raider Legend - Lara Croft's seventh outing now under the aegis of Crystal Dynamics - and appear more than mildly impressed with what they've seen.

Addressing in particular the new control system, OPM2 says: "This refined control system makes for a far more freeform and forgiving system. Cack-handed jumps can still lead to bone-powdering impacts on an unloving floor however, so the challenge hasn't changed.

"It's simply more enjoyable to manoeurvre between one potentially fatal fall and the next. And should you miss a jump, you can now perform a 'saving grab'. A buttom flashes up on screen and, if you hit it quickly enough, Lara manages a last-minute lunge."

The mag has also speculated on the mystery suitor thought to have tapped the lucrative voice of Lara Croft in the upcoming game and has drawn up a short-list that includes Rachel Weisz (3-2 favourite), Keeley Hawes (4-5 odds on), Keira Knightley (evens) and Liz Hurley (2-1 odds against).

The "unnamed celebrity" also lends her voice to PSP versions of Tomb Raider. Eidos will unveil her identity next month.
