The Tomb Raider Reboot Could Use a T-Rex

Kotaku, Evan Narcisse- "I'm worried that Lara Croft won't ever get to fight a dragon again. And that she'll never go back to Atlantis. Everything we've seen so far from the gritty Tomb Raider reboot due out next year seems to indicate that the Crystal Dynamics is burning the fantasy trappings off of the action franchise. And that shouldn't be the case, because Tomb Raider thrives on unreality." (PC, PS3, Tomb Raider, Xbox 360)

yes, this is what im worried about as well, im afraid its going to become to realistic, because in the past lara fought mummies, atlantians, dinosaurs, you name it.

That wouldn't be really realistic and therefor wouldn't fit this Tomb Raider's style.

Clearly, you never played a single Tomb Raider game before.

The T-Rex fight was iconic! If they're gonna change that much about this game, why call it Tomb Raider at all?

This is like when they slapped Castlevania on Lords of Shadow even though the game had little to nothing in common with CV.

I'd rather they stay true to their new vision and be consistent with it.

I loved the old Tomb Raider (minus a few of the entries), but if you're going to go in a new direction, go all the way with it. If you try to please everyone, you just end up with a halfhearted experience.

I think the aurthor is more concerned that since this is a reboot, the games after this will be more geared to realism, than the fantasy that made Tomb Raider, well, Tomb Raider
