Game description: Tomb Raider: Legend revives the athletic, intelligent and entertaining adventurer who won the hearts and minds of gamers worldwide. Lara comes alive with intricately animated expressions, moves and abilities. An arsenal of modern equipment, such as a magnetic grappling device, binoculars, frag grenades, personal lighting device and communications equipment, allows gamers to experience tomb raiding as never before. Eidos and Crystal Dynamics shaped Lara's look and movements to be an inherent extension of her skills, motivation and personality. Lara's character model features natural structure, realistic textures, detailed facial features, reactive eyes and fluid motion, all of which make her part of a living environment. New character animations and controls allow her to move through stunning environments with grace and precision, while an understanding of the game's original appeal reinvigorates the fundamental explore-and-solve adventure experience.

Known Issues

Glitching textures

  • Status: Active
  • Type: Minor
  • Description: Distant textures are flickering/distorted.

  • Type: Minor
  • Description: Some of the Location Concepts (e.g. Bolivia) in the Extras section are not visible in hardware mode.

Noise-like artifacts

  • Status: Active
  • Type: Minor
  • Description: In some locations (e.g. Croft Manor, Ghana) there is a random noise-like semi-transparent screen overlay when looking in certain directions.
  • Workaround: Switch to software mode (F9).
