After today's earlier low-res pictures, here's as many Tomb Raider Underworld screenshots as you could find in PLAY magazine. This is no scans, just that some of them are a little too small..
How do you lke them?
Uncharted is better than any Tomb Raider game will be.
lol, first thing I thought when I saw the screen shoots, your replaced by Drake, sorry. haha
I love Tomb Raider more than any game!! I love the first three the most!! And Tomb Raider 3 is may favorite. I just can't wait for this new title!
uncharted looks like a rip off of tomb raider
halo looks like a rip off of doom
another lame attempt by someone who prob never played uncharted to cut down on it,because their afraid the one console to rule them all, just might not rule after all.
do you even remember tomb raider? all the switch pulling? all the jumping to some place you can't see and dying and having to redo the whole puzzle again? or the tank movemnt? do you remember how bad angle of darkness was?? it was great for its time, but its been updated and almost prefected now on uncharted.
I would say that legend was actually pretty good on back on track and had really good puzzles, but uncharted blew it out of the water with gunplay and art direction and level design.
It is already looking better than Unwanted: Drakes flop.
Uncharted is at 400,000 world wide in sales... It just released in U.K. last week. How is this a flop again? It'll go on to sell well over a million, Terry. That's no flop.
How does Icewake still have 5 bubbles? Unbelievable. The only stuff I see from him is fanboyism.
Uncharted looks better at this point, hopefully TR will look better towards its release.
Drake outsold both CoD4 and AC last week as the best selling PS3 title on a global scale (173k units sold).
but I think Uncharted's screen shots looked better than Tomb Raider's.
made me laugh
+bubbles for you
Crystal Dynamics did a good job with Tomb Raider Legend. I thought the gunplay and character movement was a lot better than previous Tomb Raider games. I have the 360 version of Legend but it was still based on the PS2 graphics engine. It just had better textures.
This version is supposed to have a new graphics engine that sports some better visuals. IMO Crystal Dynamics is really talented. They made the Legacy of Kain/Soul Reaver series and it is still one of my all time favorite franchises.
Graphics are lackluster technically and artistically.
but i have to say it has stiff competition now . hopefully it can stand proud with a few other of the games in the franchise. not looking too good atm tho.
DRAKE kick's her @ss!!
but this doesnt really look like a huge improvment over those two. isnt this supposed to be made for next gen?
Another Tomb Raider game.....
Seriously Uncharted has ruined the tomb raider franchise for me forever.
i'm ready for adventure.
yay cant wait. will be great i hope.
Toomb Raider games were never good... EVER! I use to get them for like gifts when I was into ps1 gaming... I'd say I liked them and usually play them out of desperation, but never did I enjoy 1 of them. They're chalk full of trial and error game play and no tomb Raider to date has ever been replayed twice all the way thru. I don't care what anyone says. Tomb Raider games are lucky to be beaten once, let alone multiple times.
Uncharted has been beat 7 times by me so far... It offers up so much in way of replay value. Hell, changing the levels around is just 1 way.
the only game i ever replayed was silent hill 1, 5 times, good stuff
Problem with Tomb Raiders is that it lacks in cinematic flair.
I liked the Tomb Raiders, but Uncharted is what I've been looking in Tomb Raider for all these years.
I hope this Tomb Raider has a fleshed out story that's entertaining and compelling.
This franchise needs a total makeover...Eidos is hurting the image of this franchise with nothing but mediocre Tomb Raider games..take some bloody time off 7 re write your engine Eidos
i looked at the comments so far and if u praise tomb raider u get a disagree, and if u praise uncharted u get an agree. this thread prolly being trolled by sony fanboys
And they're giving you disagrees too. These screenshots look incredible I can't wait.
yea i expected that
but i dont really like the screens, im pretty sure they can do way better than that. it looks kinda like TR legend and anniversary and theres really nothing goin on in the screens and the environments look plain
yeah looks like some poeple love to disagree. or it is the only thing they do on this site.
i allways liked tomb raider, at least the first once and the last two. so really looking forward to this one.
That's so funny. Because each and every PS3 game get trashed with things like "oh, but that 3rd pixel from the right is blurry and the one below is too dark". But if Tomb Raider - after 2 years - shows mediocre visuals, it must be the "Sony" kids trash talking. Sure.
Don't get me wrong. I was impressed with the very first Tomb Raider, and I have yet to finish Anniversary. But from the next title arriving in 2008 I'd expect it to compete against Drake, KZ2 and MGS4. And these visuals don't look like they do.
if it was made 4 years ago.... might be fun though, who knows? i think uncharted wins though, and if you dont think so, its just because you like lauras butt.
Tuff call, a great game or Lara's butt. Goddamit its hard to be a gamer theese days. :)
Lara is DIRRRRTY!!! She's looking hot but not like Uncharted.
I hope they can find a way to make Lara's clothes wet too. Those would be really good "easter eggs" if you know what I mean! LOLZ!
It's official! Uncharted pwns TombRaider.
uncharted is a different kind of game. uncharted is more of the shooter kind of game. you cant really die by falling down, and puzzels are easy.
tombraider is more the puzzle, jumping kind of game. so no need to compare i think. its just the setting that makes you feel you were playing a Tomb Raider game. Uncharted is more like Gears i think.
i must say i enjoyed tomb raider anniversary almost as much a i did uncharted. but uncharted was amazing i must agree
nope, you jump in uncharted. haha. There are several levels where all you do is jump haha, where which if you miss or over jump you gasp die from falling!
lol you must be pretty good to fall and die in uncharted. =P sure it happens now and then but really dude, its nothing like Tombraider and the puzzels are also quite easy. dont get me wrong i love it. but i equally enjoy a good!!! Lara game.
Na, Tombraider owns the tombs.
I think uncharted is sweet. and i think it looks great. Graphics are better then tombraiders, no denying that.
But for puzzles, climbing etc, uncharted doesn't touch it.
Uncharted jumps,climbs,etc are very very easy, in tr you mess up, your gonna have to do it all over again, its much harder, although the last tombraider games have been easier then the first ones.
Legend was a pretty decent looking game, Although i'd like to see the graphics engine looking better.
Still both excellent games and both enjoyable.
couldn t agree more. so i dont think it looks that bad. at least some of the screens were allright.
*BUT, i'm a huge Tomb Raider fan, so i'll definitely be picking this up.
i don't understand all the trash talk, though (ie, Tomb Raider fans ripping on Uncharted, and Uncharted fans ripping on Tomb Raider), i mean, isn't there room for more than *ONE >insert exotic locale here< spelunking, streetwise and witty adventurer in gaming?
personally, the more the merrier, if you as me. Tomb Raider is known for it's puzzles, Uncharted, for it's frenetic action. win/win for me.
i've been playing Tomb Raider games since the first one on the Ps1 (didn't have a Saturn), and i've been a fan of the genre ever since.
no one can ever replace Lara, sure, but Drake had the more polished game.
these Tomb Raider shots are impressive, but they don't have the polish that Uncharted does. i chalk that up to the fact that TR is going to be developed for multiple platforms, while Uncharted was built, from the ground up, to run like gravy on the PS3.
i'm looking forward to this game though, i really am. it'll be a *PERFECT bridge while i wait for the next Uncharted.
Beat Uncharted in 2 days maybe Lara will give more of a challenge.
Good to see Lara back in Tombs instead of roaming the streets of France. -_-
Uh, that was like 5 years ago. She hasn't been doing that any time recently.
I had to reply to some of the comments on here. Tomb Raider is looks old, stale and nothing all that interesting.
The screenshots don't really inspire me with any cofendence that they have improve on the same old bash out a game with some bird with large tits.
I used to enjoy Tomb Raider after the 3rd one it simply got stupid and nothing has improved since then.
Uncharted for anyone who has played is a simply beautiful game, it has graphics, story and excitement that is fresh. Yes it takes a bit of tomb raider, prince of persiam, gears of war, shenmue but what game doesn't get inspired from another game.
I really hope they put some new ideas in the new tomb raider but I don't have any confidence after all Edios where to lazy to even release the last game on the PS3 so I'm holding up a "Not really intersted" card at the moment.
apparently Super Mario Galaxy. lol.
sorry, i couldn't resist.
i agree that after Tomb Raider 2, the series went downhill, but Legends, and Anniversary are most certainly two steps in the right direction.
personally, i like Uncharted's straightforward gameplay, but there's always a place in my heart for Lara; *WHENEVER they actually get the games right (ie, Legends and Anniversary).
Another change of model!? Not again o_O how any Lara are now like 5 o 7 right?
hopefully its a decent game, but those shots are not that impressive. I think Uncharted looks miles better graphicly and was better overall gameplaywise then the last tomb raider efforts.
Guys, Dude Raider stole half there ideas from Tomb Raider & the other half from Gears... give me a break - there is no need to even mention Uncharted on this thread - great game, albeit, take your comments to an Uncharted thread please. Please, if you dont like Tomb Raider then just move on....
Back to topic, looks awesome - cant wait for the next Tomb Raider Baby ! The last game was pretty much a 360 launch title, & it wasnt too bad given that. They need to work on the shooting mechanics alittle from the last installment, but the story & graphics were pretty good. Anyway, looks great, cant wait.
well legend was on ps2 first then they the annivesary one was made multiplatform, so they had to make it on the ps2 and 360 which might have tamed it a little of what it could have been. You just can't win with uncharted. People call it a tomb raider clone, its just like tomb raider nothing special, then when a new TR game comes out then people say uncharted was way better, then suddenlly nooooo, its a totally different game than TR, which way is it people?? lol
Graphics dont look as good as Uncharted, Technically and even artistically. It might be very early to comment coz the screens are low res and the game is far from release.. Graphics aside. The downside of last tombraider Games were lack of good combat. Uncharted does it well... hope Crystal Dynamic do something interesting and fun with combat too. Personally for me jus controlling Lara and the camera is enough fun :P
Her face makes her look like a post op trannie.
And with that color palette, she's a post-op tranny in an urban jungle.
Where's the LUSHNESS I remember from Tomb Raider 2? Oh, it's in Uncharted and LEGO Indiana Jones next. Tomb Raider only has cool, nihilistic jungles now and Lara is a goth queen! Ooooh!
I cant wait to play this game on my PS3.
Uncharted was made by a first party studio which gets more support from Sony and they have access to more tools than third party devs. Also add to the fact that TR is made to be on alot of platforms meaningm more work for that devs compared to Uncharted which is only on one system.
From what I've seen, the lighting and textures for the area look great but Lara looks kinda crappy. They are also early screens and low res.
I might agree to that if it would have been a launch title. But not if this game is released 6-12 month after CoD4 or Burnout Paradise (wow) - or AC!. So, no. Third parties don't have an excuse any more. Not in 2008.
Funny PS3 fangirls are the ones that keep saying that Uncharted is nothing like Tomb Raider but yet they are the ones that say Uncharted "owns" Tomb Raider... make up your mind already. For me the games are very different Uncharted focuses more the shooting and Tomb Raider focuses more the exploration and puzzles. If i played one game and then the other for me it would be a completely different experience.
She's looking hawt. But environments look average...in this low-res shots lol
I'm looking forward to it. I just hope it's more like anniversary (exploring isolated ruins) than legend (crashing a japanese party and nuclear facility).
Enough about Uncharted. If you played them, then you would realize they're two very different games. Tomb Raider is heavy on climbing platforming and puzzles, while Uncharted is very, very heavy on shoot and cover fighting with very little platforming and puzzles. Uncharted and TR: Anniversary are two of my favorite games this year, but they're apple and oranges in comparison.
Uncharted is at 400,000 world wide in sales... It just released in U.K. last week. How is this a flop again? It'll go on to sell well over a million, Terry. That's no flop
Seriously my friend, you have the brain of the size of a nut. 400.000 worldwide, did you get those numbers from your ass? UnWanted is a flop, a fiasco. Live with that.
I enjoyed Tomb Raider Legend on the 360, and this looks pretty damn good! Hopefully there's a big emphasis on exploring ruins, and killing bloodthirsty wildlife.
As for the Uncharted comparison, get a life. You're a pretty sad "gamer" if you feel the need to choose between them.
Even if the graphics are not as awesomes as uncharted, tomb raider is still great. Angel of darkness aside, they were all great (i played all of them). I will be getting the ps3 version and i can't wait to see how it compares to uncharted
this is a UNCHARTED rip off :). Seriously though, Uncharted looks way way way way better than this.
I love Tomb Raider and i love Lara Croft and i´m really glad that there is coming so many new games in the franchise now and im especially glad that this also will be realased on the Playstation 3 which Anniversary wasnt (sad face).
Still as many have said already, Uncharted is a better game then any Tomb Raider ever realased, but still, Tomb Raider is still great.
