Lara couldn't be much farther away from the Parisian night if she tried. Some of us may be in Leipzig, but Lara's in Africa. And, just as they said she would be, Lara is back to her old tricks - leaping from ledge to ledge, solving ancient puzzles and dancing through traps that would've claimed Indiana Jones many times over. She's not just clinging on any more; she's clinging on, hauling herself up, jumping and tumbling past circular blades and then using her new multi-purpose grapple hook to smoothly swing across a spike trap with a rope - all in one fluid motion. Those of you hoping for something closer to the Prince of Persia may yet be satisfied.

IGN: It wasn't playable, but it sure looked good.

Tomb Raider: Legend, unsurprisingly, is doing away with all those tired Croft mainstays and is instead running with a newer, sleeker, more natural kind of exploratory action. The developers at Crystal D are at least primarily concerned with the million seller's fluidity and feel. It's because of this that Tomb Raider: Legend resembles Sands of Time. Both games feature slick animation and lots of it, anyway. But, Lara may be able to best even the mighty Prince when she releases in Q2 2006.

Why did they report it was playable in the first place?

Well, it is playable, that meaning, it was being played live for us, while we watched. ;) Eidos UK Dude had the pleasure of playing the waterfall sequence, while Crystal Dymanics Dude gave us a play-by-play, describing what we were seeing that was new and startling. :) Both we very nice to chat to after the screening, and had a lot to say, but ...
