Omg, yes, I've always hated that opening. And said so on this forum when it was released.

It's like they made Lara Croft into a Charlie's Angel from the 1970s.

And that's how regressive it felt to me at the time.

I LOOOOOVVE that opening TBH. It's so campy and over the top. I'd be so happy if the series stopped taking itself so seriously for a minute and some fun returned to the games once again.

This. I wouldn't say I LOVE it, it's just fine, but it's perfectly in theme for Legend itself. The game doesn't give a damn about being serious, which is honestly a breath of fresh air compared to AoD, Underworld, or any of the reboot trilogy.

Do I like Legend? Not really, but I still give the game immense props for just being whimsically fun even if it kind of sucked as a TR game.

Who's this James Bound?

I thought it was a cool little sequence, a little cheesy but TR was always campy so it didn't matter.

I've only just noticed though, they randomly put AoD Lara's silhouette in at 21 seconds and I have no idea why they'd do that haha

Yeah I also miss the time that Mortal Kombat was campy and not serious.

Also I think I should clarify that Legend wasn't the best TR game imo but it was better than AOD and 2013.(About being better than Rise and Shadow I don't know since I haven't played those 2)
They shouldn't have removed the sprint from it. It felt like going back to TR games before 3.(It also had some other problems)

Mortal Kombat literally is still campy and over the top so...
This clip is a bunch of badly animated characters with some cheesy vintage music. The characters to this day do these over the top entrances and victory poses though, only they look much more realistic and much better animated. What is your point?
