A couple of months ago I started a series called Classic Play Tomb Raider, later renamed Let’s Play Classic Tomb Raider, because it makes it easier to understand. The plan was simple: play through all the Classic Lara Croft games in reverse order—because I was already playing Underworld when the idea popped in my head! I want to give a special thanks to Kelly M. from The Archaeology of Tomb Raider for pointing out a flaw in my naming: the LAU Trilogy isn’t considered Classic Tomb Raider. It’s why now I say Classic Lara Croft when I explain the series! Continue reading Let’s Play Classic Tomb Raider – Halfway There!
Last week I finished my Anniversary run, not knowing it was Legend’s birthday! So this week I’m making up for lost time and playing my favourite game and the first in the LAU trilogy, Tomb Raider: Legend!
After the disappointment I felt over The Angel of Darkness and Chronicles before it, this game was the best that could’ve happened to me as a Tomb Raider fan. It revitalised my love for the series and not only gave me back the Lara I had always known and whom I loved but it gave me the first chapter in a wonderful story that would continue in the games I’ve already played through as part of this series. And it’s Tomb Raider’s take on Arthurian legends, what more could you ask?
Much like I did with Anniversary, I will update this article over the next few weeks when a new video is ready! For this run you will have my (not-so) lovely commentary, because my voice has returned! If I haven’t mentioned it before, my voice left me behind after playing the really cool voice-activated title In Verbis Virtus, which I will review soonish!
