Fair

Difficult to control on Wii

the game itself is fun. The storyline is neat. I like Norse Mythology a lot and it's cool. The music is cool. The intense scenes are heart pounding.

I just got very annoyed with how hard it is to control Lara. A lot of times she seems to do the opposite of what you are trying to make her do. I ended up jumping off a lot of cliffs because she didn't jump the way I was pointing. The angles of view can get very annoying too. Some of the puzzles are very lengthy and annoying.

Tomb Raider Legacy and anniversary are so much better on the Wii. The controls were changed for this one which was completly stupid cause the controls on Anniversary for the Wii were pretty close to perfect. Also the graphics have gone down instead of up. And obviously the Wii is capable of a much larger storage of graphics, yet there were all sorts of graphic glitches and horriable movement visuals. Basically a let down for the Wii, I suspect the PS3 and 360 versions are much more cleaned up and easier to handle.

Solid Raid - Some wicked tough platform puzzles, secrets were pretty easy though. Great rental since it is very short. My game was marred by 2 very bad glitches (missing pole on wall & missing wheel gear) which were both pretty important. Had to restart the game, but I used that opportunity to find missing secrets. Recommended! D
