Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Lara's outfits tend to emphasize her physical attributes, but her portrayal swings widely between a gun-toting femme fetal and a brainy archaeologist. The combat sequences can get intense but lack close-up blood and gore, with defeated enemies fading quickly away. The game's puzzles have little to do with actual archaeology, but they do present a challenge and a welcome break from the reflex-heavy action sequences.
Is It Any Good?
TOMB RAIDER: LEGENDS is better than most of the installments in the series because it sticks closer to the allure of the original formula: great graphics, a great storyline to carry the action, and game-challenging puzzles. Some levels contain intense firefights, with exploding tanks of propane, mounted machine guns, and vicious guard dogs. Overall, though, shooting sequences tend to be limited to one or two major incidents per level. In the end, this a fun and challenging installment in the popular series.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
