Usually I like my Lara in some ancient dusty tomb with scorpions and things....but I'm on top of the japanese building and it's taken my breath away. I love this game. I'm in the art room at the top and after a very satisfying gun battle, i@m just walking around...and what a place. I'm so impressed. I've found another tomb raider game I love. :p
Forgot to mention the grenades. I'm remembering to throw a few. Excellent.

I love that game too, It's my favourite game! :jmp:
It has such beautiful locations, such as Nepal (underline to see it, I don't want to spoil it if you didn't play ;))
Glad you like the game!

I love Legend, it's such a fun game :D
But not what I would call Tomb Raider :pi:

I know what you mean...but we have to change with the times. Don't get me wrong though, anniversary is ace but the postal strike is holding up my graphics card and rumblepad.......so I'm not touching it until they arrive. Legend is keeping me sane and happy in the meantime. I do like the ease of the game plus it's stunning graphics. Good Stuff.:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

I have just ordered the CD. What stopped me before was all the bad comments about the game. Everyone criticized AOD so I didn't bother. Should've known.:mad:

I played Legend several times, though mainly whilst I was ill and couldn't concentrate on looking around and stuff. I loved trying to beat my time...
It's a very easy game, very linear. But I agree the graphics are brilliant.

I am sorry for the double post, but this is amazing news :cln:
(I even amaze myself sometimes :D)

Look at the drawing below, it shows where I have managed to fly the motorbike so far, and at last I have flown across to the rooftop gardens, which are further on in the level ;)

So here is the video, it has taken me a long time to reach here, as controlling the flying motorbike is like blowing a leave in the wind while simultainiously operating a yoyo up and down :p

May I present this video showing, where no motorbike has reached before..... :D

Wow that's amazing! :yah:
And really strange... She was being attacked by invisible enemies! :eek:

Do you think it's possible to get the bike inside the building? (even though we can't see the entrance)

Usually if you jump ahead in a level by sneaky means, this 'loss of textures in a 360 degree camera rotation' happens quite often.

The usual solution is to get Lara to retreat back to an earlier part of the level, then return and the level will shows up normally, hopefully with the bike and garden showing all textures.

Two routes off the rooftop gardens....
I was trying to get lara (without bike) back onto the moving platform scaffolding, but the rope was not there, so no go.
The other route is as you say, into the building via the doors, but only two dog enemies appeared and no humans, no cutscene trigger, so the door could not be reached, till this fight cutscene was played through, hence I could not proceed in that direction either.

I am still working on it, and I may have found a way of getting the bike further into the building from the gardens, I will try.

I am just happy I got as far as I did :D
