Rarity #4: Legend's title introduction sequence

Crystal Dynamics' revision of Core Design's renowned video game heroine, Lara Croft, was highly anticipated after her 3 year hiatus following The Angel of Darkness. Returning in 2006 for Tomb Raider: Legend, the product shipped with a Bond-esque introduction sequence to which the accompanying music has never been released without sound effects. Subsequently it remains a rarity, and while speculation exists, there is nothing to suggest it isn't work by the game's composer Troels B. Folmann:

A similar track that scores the "Unfortunate Mishaps" unlock-able video was also not actually used in-game. However, this piece features in the "Tokyo" suite on the Tomb Raider: Anniversary [Collector's Edition] soundtrack and shouldn't be considered a rarity.
