while I was playing TRL on my PSP, I found a new combat move!

while shooting a mercenary, run up to them, press jump and quickly press action. Lara will kick them in the face and do a small backflip back to the ground, the mercenaries will trip over and you have some time to shoot them.

this can only be done on PSP, PS2, XBOX, XBOX360, PC, GC

Translating for each version of the game, it would go something like this.

PSP:

draw your guns,
run up to the enemy and press X (jump), while Lara is in the air, quickly press [] (square for action), Lara will perform the move.

PS2:

draw your guns,
run up to the enemy and press X (jump), while Lara is in the air, quickly press /\ (triangle for action), Lara will perform the move.

XBOX/XBOX360:
draw your guns,
run up to the enemy and press A (jump), while Lara is in the air, quickly press Y (Y for action), Lara will perform the move.

PC:

draw your guns, run up to the enemy and press jump, while Lara is in the air, quickly press interact/action, Lara will perform the move.

GC:

(note, I have not played the GC version, I have just looked at a GC controller and guessed what the buttons are, please tell me if I am wrong)

draw your guns, run up to the enemy and press A (jump), while Lara is in the air, quickly press Y (Y for action), Lara will perform the move.

I hope I explained that right, have fun! :D

BTW, I am not talking about the aereal assault move, I just found this move and am not sure if it is new or not.

Actually, on Xbox explains how to make the kickjump and the slowmo attack, so this is kinda new to me :o...

Lara never visited Mexico in Legend, perhaps you meant Peru? And yes you are right, it is explained as one of the moves when practising with the dummy, so hardly "new".

either way its not a new move at all. the move even shows up in one of the videos that play if nothing is done at the menu for a certain amount of time.
