I wonder if there's any way you can order the magazine online with the demo?

BTW: What issue is this?

I had an SMS yesterday from my young nephew who is happily playing the Tomb Raider Legend PS2 demo that came with the latest edition of the Official UK PS2 Magazine…NO FAIR :D

I bought him the subscription so he gets the magazine early.
However, the magazine will be on the shop shelves in the next few days.
At last!!!

Where does that info comes from? Is GreenLeaf releasing it here? If it is GreenLeaf and they set the date to April 11th, maybe by August it will actually hit the shops. :rolleyes:

WTF? I don't have a clue of what you are talking about. What's GreenLeaf?

Anyway ,shops here import the game from the US and sell them here. My shop(very good shop and not pirate :mad: ) have already ordered their copies. They will get here in the same time as US , April 11th.

Calma caubói.

O que acontece é que jogos lançados no Brasil são publicados pela GreenLeaf, para PC apenas. Acho que você sabe tão bem como eu que jogos para PS2, GC ou Xbox não são lançados aqui, são como você disse - importados.

A GreenLeaf tem a má fama de ser uma péssima publicadora de jogos no Brasil. Dá uma olhada no site super-atualizado deles para descobrir a Nova Lara para uma Nova Geração de Jogadores:

www.greenleaf.com.br

De qual loja você vai comprar? Qual o preço? Eu vou ter que apelar para o Mercado Livre, porque jogos aqui no Brasil são dependentes da pirataria.

I am looking out for it. *is very excited* I hope it splurges 'TR Legend Demo!!' all over its front cover so it is easy to spot. And I hope the same for the official xbox magazine.... I tend to need these things pointed out in big giant lettering. Console magazines have such busy covers. :o :D Of course, I could have missed the xbox one already.... hmmm...

I bought the UK OPM magazine today and have just played through the Legend demo twice.

YEAHHHHH!!!!!!!!!

Tomb Raider is back and uses the Analog Sticks correctly this time.
Looking VERY cool...Good job CD :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

I haven't figured out the button combo for the swan dive yet.
Let me know if you come across it first.

I have tried the rolling into enemies trick and watched them go flying in the air before filling them with lead.
I would also like to find out what the button combo is for going into bullet time.

Oh no, really? This is why I *have* to get my hands on a PC demo...I've just got to know if I will be able to control the game.

I haven't played the demo, but I remember reading that swan dive is when you jump forward and hit "roll" at the same time. I think bullet-time is triggered when you jump onto an enemy's head (not sure if it's just the normal jumping or not).

okay.... This demo is AWSOME :eek: really really awsome, the mag had some screen shots of the mansion, and an article the possitivley glowed, and worshipped. :)

the demo gives a nice vairety of the gameplay varietions in the game, once you get used to the controls, which happens quickly, and in full game we ahve the mansion to access whenver as a full level on its own to train on before playing the game , they had the option dimmed, tanitlizingly on the demo like saying its here, you go back, but not now, you have to wait......

swimming is easy enough once you get the hang of tings, as is the grapple, and so on... its all kind of cool, evolution.

And according to the OPS2 its graphics are unbleeivable they look more next gen than PS2 :) so just imagine the 360, PC and eventual PS3 graphic for Lara now shes moved to CD :)

and they are amazing, the first little while i kept getting distracted by the sheer awe of the scenes shadows of birds, perfect, the way water falls, so real


becca xxxx going back down to play it again and again :)
