Dude, where's the boobs? She looks pretty sexy and all, but Croft has D cups, NOT B.

I guess SE is running some corporate decisions when it comes to her overall look.

Tomb Raider had 3 excellenct games on the PS One. Then, I don't know what the hell happened. But every attempt to make a new TR turned into a pile of meh. At this point I am open for any new ideas. But personally, I think the Tomb Raider series needs a better company than SE. Square hasn't really performed to standard for some 5 or 6 years.

Maybe theya re going after the style of Uncharted. Something mature but lovable by all. Even younger crowds.

What are you talking about?? did you even play the games. Seriously, both Legend and TRA were better than anything Core 've produced back then. Underworld was a bit average though, but that's the only one.

CD 've fixed the camera, the controls, the level design was excellent, Legend was a slick, refreshing and fun game. TRA was perhaps the most well done remake ever, it fixed everything that was wrong with original while maintaining that fantastic, esoteric style.

I don't know, perhaps you guys feel so threatened by this TR reboot now, since you care so much about those exclusives of yours. Seriously, play the games.

"What are you talking about?? did you even play the games. Seriously, both Legend and TRA were better than anything Core 've produced back then."

Are you kidding? This was the first game I've played on the Saturn and I loved it. I re-purchased the game on the PSX because I the sequels were released there (and it feels natural on a PSX controller). I even re-purchased ALL of the classic series for my PSP on the go. <-- That's how memorable it was.

The moment I popped in Legend, I nearly broke my keyboard in agony, this was NO tomb raider. It was a blatant rip-off of POP: Sands of Time mechanics with a fucking grappling hook. I HATE THE FUCKING GRAPPLING hook. It was ropes and vines back then, and you had to really LOOK for them. Classic platforming elements challenged you to keep OBSERVING where and how they should be traversed. The game was way too easy. AND SHORT.

Not to mention the world on the classics were more imaginative/expansive and the puzzles were sublime/awesome. CD destroyed everything I liked about Tomb Raider, I even gave them a chance to redeem themselves on Underworld. That was the biggest fuck-up I've ever played on the series. Heck, I enjoy AoD 10 times BETTER than any of the shit CD put on the table.

Not to mention..

Classic games got some of the best bosses.

Legend was indeed too easy and short, i'll give you that much. Although, another way to look at it is the game being a casual friendly attempt at a reboot, it was accessible.

I don't see how you can make these (crazy to be honest) claims, such as the ' PoP rip off'. Joking? Ubi ripped off the original TR.. the non tank control system is being used in all of the modern games. Seriously, think of what you've said for a moment.. Surely two games in the same sub genre should be similar. Is Halo a Half Life rip-off? What would you propose??

I disagree with your definitions of 'platforming elements'. They aren't classic, they're outdated, clumsy and annoying. Core have been churning out mediocre, glitchy, generic games since 1998. TRA showed that the new system can make for both challenging and fun gameplay. Again, I agree with you on that Legend was way too casual friendly.

The world in past TR2 titles wasn't imaginative, it was generic and uninspiring, nothing in later Core games even came close to something like the hidden valley or the Venice level. I don't see how you can hate Legend's locations and level design, they were classy. Underworld's quality was in fact inconsistent, but the Thailand and the opening cave stage were excellent. Seriously, it's funny how you 're saying a glitchy, pseudo intelligent mess that was AoD was more enjoyable in any way.

They said they wanted to tone her sex appeal down just a hair. Which, in my opinion, is like taking away Kratos' blades of chaos and giving him a butter knife.

Still, I really, really want this game. Mayhaps the new Lara will be better than the old Lara.

Yea, this new game does look epic, I'm really looking forward to trying it out.
Cenobia  +   1634d ago
Actually, giving Kratos a butter knife would just make his kills take longer while making them a lot more personal.

There is still going to be a ton of blood spewing out all over the place.

I'm glad they turned that down. I'm getting sick of video games featuring sex objects instead of proper women.
NBT91  +   1634d ago
Like the new hair though
Simco876  +   1634d ago
Looks more american than brit. I miss old school croft

Looks like they are taking the franchise more seriously now. I always wondering how Lara was able to do all that climbing and pull off crazy maneuvers with those huge tits in the way. Kind of silly when you think about it. Female athletes usually don't have tremendous knockers anyway.

I like the new design. That artwork reminds me of Juno from "The Descent".

Just kidding. It's a huge difference, a bit jarring to those who were used to the old Lara, but she definitely looks the part more now, in my opinion. Less femme-fatale and more adventurer-archaeologist.

But seriously new-Dante needs to die and return to his former glorious self.
spirited  +   1634d ago
Just fix the camera issues this time for the love of GOD.

seriously the series has been plagued by bad camera .
Horny Melon  +   1634d ago
The two things that worry me is.....
that they have this "purchase skills" mechanism that I think is poorly thought out......"Oh I got $5,000 I need to purchase the double back flip to ledge grab so that I can finally reach the sword of truth."

the other is the fast travel. Why on earth in a "platformer" would you give someone the ability to skip the platforms? Fast travel ruined Oblivion and Fallout series because it made traversing the world a series of load screens.

the artwork, facial art is the best sh* I've ever seen!
it looks so farking real!
rataranian  +   1634d ago
1) They took away the booty shorts and boobs. = fail.
2) All this will be now is an Uncharted rip off. = fail.
3) SE has their hands in it. = FAIL!
oldjadedgamer  +   1634d ago
Your list = fail

1)Watch porn if you want to see boobs
2)Every game that has similar gameplay to another isn't necessarily a ripoff
3)SE is the publisher, not developer
GoldPS3  +   1634d ago
I like the look. You guys say she needs bigger boobs but this is the young Lara. Not the 30 year old one. Most women boobs get bigger when they get older.
Horny Melon  +   1634d ago
That usually happens during puberty and after child birth.
CobraKai  +   1634d ago
I love the new Lara. She has an athletic looking body, which is perfect for tomb raiding, and not the overly top heavy look of past games. She looks more believable as an archeologist

"sweep the leg man, sweep the leg"
djfullshred  +   1634d ago
Looks like some of her boobs moved down to her thighs, LOL.

Looks good though for an updated female action star. More in touch with today's audience.
stuntman_mike  +   1634d ago
she looks like a mix of elena and chloe from uncharted. but a bit younger.
Xusuyzus  +   1634d ago
where tities?
no buy
unknownhero1123  +   1634d ago
watch porn if you want "tities"
