24 new screenshots of Tomb Raider to prove that Square Enix is really aiming to make the best game of this generation.
i'll just wait until this game plays out. Not impressed graphically but I'm truly hoping they deliver on the campaign mode since Drake Deception didn't do it for me.
The uncharted franchise as a whole just made me love the genre in video games even more. I never played a Tomb Raider, but Im defiantly going to pick this up @dcboyc130 I loved U3 a bit more than U2... but I think I understand where you are coming from since ND felt enormous pressure after U2 and the ridiculous amounts of critical and fan acclaim that they were not expecting. If you watch the documentary or any of the U3 teams interviews, you could sense a lot of worry and self doubt due to the standards people made after U2. For some they delivered (like me) and for some they fell short(like you). Hell I set a lot of standards since U2 was my favorite game on the Ps3 and i loved it dearly. I understand where you are coming from... but I think the pressure got to ND. I think thats why the are hyping up TLOU themselves more than U3... because they are trying to assure that they are confident in building a game that will triumph over U2. Saying stuff like "we will change the f***ing industry" they want to make themselves confident and so the KNOW that they will top U3, rather than NOT SURE that they will do better than U2 But on topic I am looking forward to this new tomb raider since the original games really did not seem like my thing
I love uncharted and this game is looking amazing from the gameplay trailer . looking forward to seeing more of it at E3
Drakes Deceptions story was brillaint, it might not of had the character development like U2 since Elena, Cutter and Chole were basicaly ignored for most of the game but was still impressive, better then most stories in video games these days. I think Tomb Raider will do well but they won't top the Uncharted franchise. Nathan Drake isn't going to let that crown go so easily
Drakes Deception story was shocking and filled with plot holes.
Filled with plot holes...are you serious Oh... You must be the part of the small amount of people who obviously have to have everything layed out in a story. Amy Hennig has already adressed these "plotholes".
Why are people disagreeing with Mike, he's telling the truth Amy Henning explained everything on Twitter ages ago She even said she felt she didn't want to explain everything in the game and thought gamers would be able to figure this stuff out themselfs. I mean really...agreeing when someone like omi25p bullshits yet when someone tells the truth you have to disagree the guy to death Is this because people hate Uncharted and are jealous it managed to become the game Tomb Raider should of been
from a graphics standpoint this looks pretty bad but it's not all about graphics so... >.> <.<
I disagree on both accounts. Drake's Deception was a fantastic game. I don't know how you can't be impressed graphically when this is easily one of the best looking games around.
I still cant wait for this game. I have high hopes this game will bring the Tomb Raider franchise back into the big leagues.
I totally forgot about this! Still really pumped for it. I want it to succeed so badly.
Wait, aren't all these screenshots from last years demo they debuted at E3 2011? I mean, maybe I am wrong but these all look like they are taken directly from the onstage demo they did.
-_-...zzZ O_O! (awakes from slumber) Who, huh, wha-? New Tomb Raider news? I almost forgot that game was in production. Release date, please?
beginning of 2013
Oh cool, thanks. That's not too bad a wait. Although there will likely be 1 delay, potentially releasing summer next year.
Wow those screens really mean this game will automatically be the best game of this generation. It's not even my onion, it's a fact.
Those screens look stunning.
I haven't play a Tomb Raider game since PSX days I finish TR 1 through 4 and never play one again on PS2 & later, so I must admit I am a little curious on how this is going to unfold :) I have a gr8 time with the old TR games I still have nightmares from back then when I was playing TR3 it was and it still is one of the hardest games I have ever play but this hardness was what makes the whole experience so rewarding. Back then TR was a truly hardcore game I cant say the same for Uncharted for me playing Uncharted after what I have been through with TR series was child's play, so that's what I am hopping for for this new reboot of TR I am sold as long they dont transform it into another casual game for little kids, TR was hard! really hard I hope they will keep it that way.
The graphics look worse from last year..
Still an early build. Edios has until 2013 to make this game look and perform good so I've got faith in their studio.
Did they change character looks? She looked sexier before...
She looks timid and naive now for some reason which definitely is the opposite of Laura Croft.
This game is supposed to take place before she becomes the "Lara Croft" we all know and love. That is why she looks timid and naive.
@ dragon82: Oh, I didn't know that. Now it makes sense, thanks for the info man.
Saw the Gametrailers trailer on Spike and i must say the game looks extremely promising. Lara looks really good & her younger look is realistic. She still has the british accent & the set pieces shown were really well done. It is too bad the game is delayed til March 5, 2013 cause it may look like the Queen of adventure games is back big time!
Have all three Uncharted games for the Ps3 and will be getting this as well. If you don't like that sue me. Hope it will be a fun game. There should be a cameo appearance by Drake just for randomness. And the next Uncharted game could be called Uncharted: Tomb Raider lol
She looks too sweet, innocent, naive and at a bit timid. This is Laura Croft, she's supposed to be fearless, sharp, sophisticated and take no nonsense.
And you can tell that's what she's going to be like through the whole game based on these screenshots? Anyone can look naive(?) and timid(?) when you take one still frame. Have you ever had a photo taken that made you look completely different? Like when someone takes a picture and you have both eyes closed because you blinked? That doesn't mean you're like that all the time, it's just a snapshot. It's the same kind of thing here.
I was just informed that the game takes place before she becomes the kicking ass and taking names Laura, so you could be right or it could just be a design decision to emphasize her transformation. I agree, and you do make a good point as well, simple screen shots aren't necessarily completely telling of the characters general disposition.
Can someone answer something for me? Tomb Raider is getting a lot of flak for being "cinematic" in the sense that it is believed to use QTE and focus on cutscenes. I'm sorry, but I don't feel that makes something really cinematic. To me, cinematic is high production values seen through contextual animations and dynamic camera angles that still play up the importance of interaction. I hope TR has these things, but I have never thought cutscenes=cinematic. Passivness is not cinematic. By my standards, cinematic is 2:56-3:00 http://www.youtube.com/watc... Or 2:14 to 3:06 http://www.youtube.com/watc...
