1UP- Crystal Dynamics' Tomb Raider reboot strives to make Lara more "relatable." But is that what fans want?
The franchise needs to be rebooted back to its roots and not made mainstream/casual
I liked the demo. It seems like they are going all out. Uncharted raised the bar the original Tomb Raiders set years ago. Now it looks like they are going to do the same to the TR series again. It needs this. Lara hasn't had a real smash in ages. I also love all the Square published games like Hitman and this are getting the Maya/Crystal/White Engine Square treatments in the CGi department. The one thing Square has never done wrong ( regardless if the game sucked) is the CGi cutscenes. Also Lara is no longer a big boobed girl so they can focus on character development without any distractions.
Yeah the demo was quite good.. im really looking forward to this game
The question seems more like "will they like the NEW Lara Croft?" I haven't been following the game to closely, but I do really like the new direction. And I never saw the reason she was that well-liked in the first place. Well, okay, I can think of TWO reasons...
lara croft rocks, so does nathan drake. but i like the role nathan drake plays more.
For a lot of people, this will be their first Tomb Raider game. It's hard to tell whether they'll enjoy it, but I hope so. For those who are already familiar with the series, it's a toss-up. Nostalgia gets in the way of a lot of games, these days, though it also makes others that much more acceptable. Only time will tell which of these responses the new game will garner.
This new Croft has magic vision that shows you everything including how to solve puzzles so it already fails. Tomb Raider games haven't been good in years. I'll skip this just like the others. Just glad Uncharted was there to pick up the pieces.
i hate the new model for this game!!! i want want my old lara croft!!!
I want the old curvy model. This one looks like another anorexic teenager
