Magic horses and lost girls removed from Tomb Raider to keep it “real”

IncGamers: If all of Crystal Dynamics’ ideas about what to include in the upcoming Tomb Raider reboot had been incorporated it would have been a very different game.

In a recent IncGamers interview with Tomb Raider’s Global Brand Director Karl Stewart said that ideas such as Lara protecting a lost little girl and magical horses were dropped in a bid to keep things “real” and always about Lara. (PC, PS3, Tomb Raider, Xbox 360)

The real question is why were Magic horses even mentioned?
iamironman  +   819d ago
tomb raider has often had that kind of magical thing. like giant enemies and stuff in the previous games and old relics that turn out to have special powers.
Emilio_Estevez  +   819d ago
That's true, but magic horses? C'mon.

hope this really goes back to
the survival roots and tactics of the original, such a classic series that has gone downhill for awhile now

If the game were anything about exploration and puzzles rather than wilderness survival and fighting off rapists, it might just have something to do with Tomb Raider.

No magic horses?!?!?! Well screw this. If I can't have Lara Croft with magic horses I'm not going to waste my time. I'll play as the new emo Dante before I accept no magic horses.

haven't the movies always had some kind of fantastical element to them? I mean lara got chased by a walking monument in the first, and the second one had some crazy shadow things.
