My youngest daughter had PS2 for Christmas and has been playing Fifa 2005 with her dad every night. I think his heart was bursting the other night when she galloped up the stairs shouting,

"I'll be Arsenal and you can be Real Madrid."

His honorary boy. Bless them.

A quick word on the up and coming Tomb Raider: Legend.

After effectively destroying the series with the truly abismal Angel of Darkness, Eidos sacked original Tomb Raider creator, Core Design and passed the batton on to Crystal Dynamics, with whom they produced Legacy of Kain: Defiance. So, obviously, I purchased said game to hopefully get a taster of what these two can do together and I must say I'm quite hopeful. The environments are detailed and rich in atmos, the character designs are original and well worked and the controls are smooth and responsive, both in regular movement and in combat mode.

If there is one element of concern it's the camera employed in Legacy of Kain, which often focuses on the character rather than where you're trying to manouver him. Though I've seen worse, it wouldn't be of much use in a Tomb Raider game in which the emphasis is on using Lara's athletic ability to bounce around the large, detailed and now (apparently) fully interactive settings, preferably without falling from large platforms and breaking your neck.

By the way, trailers for TR: Legend is available on the official site.

Katamari Damacy is the best PS2 game ever. Ever, ever, ever. 'Nuff said.
