No more squares! Woo-hoo!  
Tomb Raider: Legend indeed rocks. To almost the highest level in fact. Having been someone who brought the first one when it came out, I've been with this series a long time. I've enjoyed most of them (although Angel of Darkness was a complete bitch to control) and TRII is still one of my favourite games of all time - the Barkhang Monastery still makes me squee now. Legend might actually become my new favourite.

It looks beautiful. The scenery is just stunning. And the gameplay is so much better than AoD. She controls properly now. It's definitely Prince of Persia influenced. She's not quite as agile as my dear Prince (will nothing ever take the place of Sand of Time in my affections?), but she's pretty damn close. I've even found myself accidentally trying to use same of the Prince's controls on her every now and again. The whole presentation is actually much closer to the movies than the other games - you've got your two sidekicks with who you can have witty banter over the radio, you've got mercenaries...even some of the locations and costumes look the same.

So far I'm really loving it.

Oh, and __kali__? She DOESN'T do that weird groaning thing anymore. I feel like I should be doing it for her...

Noooooooooooooooooooooooo! *cries*

At least she still handstands when climbing up stuff. Only more gracefully. Hopefully you'll still be able to dive her off high cliffs when she gets annoying.
