    Shes hott
  3. Completely changing her story, changing her, making her look like a typical Final Fantasy girl and sounding corny when she talks. Yeah, real good move. I've played every Tomb Raider game of the past and this, to me, will never be considered Tomb Raider. I can't believe they're even using 'Tomb Raider' as the title instead of something with an extension. Definitely NOT buying this game. Sorry Lara, you were done at Underworld, this isn't you anymore.
  4. This is NOT Tomb Raider. They need to change the name entirely, because that is NOT Lara Croft, and this is NOT Tomb Raider. There was no reason to rewrite her story. Lara has had how many games, all following the story of her TOMB RAIDING life? This is just a game about a generic Final Fantasy girl having to survive somewhere on her own. Female Tarzan? How about you call it that. I wouldn't buy this game if you paid me, and I'm so disappointed with everything they've done with one of my favourite games.

    Shouldn't be called Tomb Raider, but I mean, I won't write off the game for the title.

    Guest is a little obsessed. They used an actual actress for that footage and she was very pretty, but not an outrageous cartoon body. The voice was a cute British accent. Truthfully, those of you who played Tomb Raider on Win 95 are probably not the target audience, so they can reboot the franchise. I don't see any difference between this and Batman Begins and it sure worked there! Not really into adventure games, but I might give it a shot, first I'd need to see game footage rather than film.

    I lost interest in the franchise many years ago, but what I've seen over the last couple days at E3 has peaked my interest once again. I might have to give this reboot a shot come next year and hope they can pull it off.
  8. Love the people that write off something even before they played it. Why not just give it a chance after downloading the demo before chastising the look of the game?

    Looks interesting... I too will miss the original story line the TR games followed, but at some point its time to move on. A new TR game with the same gameplay type, third person adventure and shooter will always be welcomed with Lara in it.

    I'm sure the wife will be happy with my staring at some e-boobs in HD glory.
  10. No, this **** looks realistic and raw. I prefer this over some unrealistic action. First Tomb Raider I want to play.

    It looks realistic because it is a split screen trailer, not a gameplay trailer. We'll see what it looks like when the gameplay trailers come out.

    hello ...

    i loved the Tomb Raider franchise & i love the genre (70% of my collection are adventure games) ..

    i'm waiting for this & for the TR HD collection. it may not look like the original ones, but with the GFX capabilities of our new machines, can't expect same & yet a reboot is a reboot.

    i want to see more & i wonder how a duo of Sir Drake & Miss Croft would look like :p

  13. I think it looks awesome.
    IT IS TOMB RAIDER. Don't judge before playing please.
    Since this is only the begging of the game, she'll get stronger and become Lara Croft that we know.
    Judging from what I have seen this far, it is fantastic and realistic that ever (even at this stage)
    Can't wait!!!!!!!!!
  14. its just a fun game, idk whyy ppl ar bitchin on laura WHO ISNT EVEN REAL
