Really good! even though the graphics are bad, the story, and the game play is good. Its not too violent, since you cant see the blood because of the graphics, though, I wouldn't say its easy to play, as some of the puzzles are difficult.

Extremely boring

I grew tired of playing this game within only an hour or two. It is boring and the graphics are horrible.

Is It Any Good?

Kids say (12 ):

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.
