Tomb Raider reboot isn't shit, but something new instead

Another reboot, but is it DmC all over again. Probably not as this is one game that comes out fighting fit. (PC, PS3, Tomb Raider, Xbox 360)

Another game where what the fans want is ignored in favor of pleasing casual players. A game which totally wants to be Uncharted with boobs.

Without TR there would never of been Uncharted though. I don't mind them copying things from uncharted as long as they do it right. This game should do well.

There's nothing wrong with a mimic of Uncharted. Considering Uncharted felt like an evolution of Tomb Raider, this TR reboot seems rather fitting.

It might not be unique, especially for PS3 gamers, but if Tomb Raider is half as good as the Uncharted series, then Xbox gamers are in for a huge treat.

What made uncharted a great series is the talent behind the characters that TR seems to not have. The great voice acting and chemistry is what makes uncharted so real and charming. However I will give TR props because the story revolving the game does seem intense and good. But yea hopefully it's a good game so others can get a small taste of why the PS3 public raves a lot for the uncharted series.

I believe publishers should just create new franchises instead of doing reboots of old ones since they ignore fans 99% of the time

Same thing with movies. Have some originality for crying out loud.

To be honest, my main problem is with how vulnerable Lara Croft is being made to be in this reboot. Where's the sexy badass we once loved back in the 90s!

Oh well, it's no where near as bad as DmC Dante. Will definitely be playing this game.

I consider my self a fan of Tomb Raider and I don't give a crap if the reboot doesn't include under water levels. Nothing wrong with regen health either.

Agreed. If ppl were real TR fans, they'd know that Lara as a young adult got stranded and had to survive. Even the early games reference this event as to how she became the badass we all know. Ppl act like she's gonna be some school girl 90% of the game. Im willing to bet no more then 2-3 hours in the transformation will begin. I hope this game is successful, as a complete reboot to TR1 would be the next step. Sorry to the so-called true TR fans, Im really digging Laras new look. She actually looks like a real person. As if someone who looks like Angelina Jolie would really be raiding tombs, "C'MON MAN!"

I played the last outing I enjoyed it but it starting to get dated, so a fresh remake may be what the doctor ordered,

Call to a console fans please support Elite: Dangerous we need this game on PS3 and Xbox http://elite.frontier.co.uk...

I'm not a big fan of reboots/remakes but I don't see the harm of it either. If done well anyways.

Tomb Raider, IMO, looks great. It might not be the TR of old and Lara does start off a little too "weak", but in all honesty, that is how a person should react when thrown into a world like this for the first time. So as a reboot origin story, I think it sounds pretty real and most of the videos seem completely "in character" for the new Lara Croft and Tomb Raider series.

I can't wait to give the game a go and just hope it plays as well as it looks as its undeniably a great looking game (given another name, bet most wouldn't have same concerns other than same people crying 'UNCHARTED!'). In the end, if it plays well, that's all that matters and I like what I've seen.

Nathan and Uncharted might be "king" but LC/TR was basically the queen mother that just never quite kept up with the times and needed a fresh new look and catch up to the times. Essentially, TR has been evolving since the movies and Guardian as the new game looks more along those lines than her old self--not bad, just different.

I hope the multiplayer is fun, I'm not quite sure about it yet.

Tomb raider was always about big levels and exploration, finding keys and stuff.
Make a reboot but don't forget the essence of TR, don't make a corridor game, or you would get a worse treatment then the DmC reboot.
