Oh dear god its like she is in the Resident Evil games now. I mean her new outfit is okay but this new game seems less like a tomb raider adventure and more like a try at getting a new fan base without concern for the current loyal fan base

i agree it looks more survival horror than tomb raider. gameplay looks amazing though. i dont like the lara they came up with though, seems different

I kinda like that she gets smacked around a bit. She needed to be cut down to size :) Picture-perfect action girl image is so 90s.

But otherwise it's not really Tomb Raider, it's just survival/horror with Lara's name attached to it. It'll sell a few copies I'm sure.

Yes. I do like the new Lara. I'm actually a big fan of what Crystal Dynamics has done with the TR series. I'm REALLY looking forward to this game. I think it's going to be EPIC!

Awesome is what I think. I do like the new Lara. I like the direction they are going with this. Can't wait to see more. Do you have plans to make her new costume?

I think this game will be fantastic. I can see why some people may not see it the same way, but that's what I feel.

I'm not sure if I'm gonna like this game. It's incrediblely good looking and the FMV animations are without a doubt some of the best I've seen. However, after it was announced that Crystal Dynamics were going to cooperate with Square Enix, I was worried how this would turn out. Square Enix Asia is great, Square Enix Europe is not. And after watching the trailer, I knew it was the Europe department that had been involved in this project. But here's the kicker; the game doesn't look like either. Not Crystal, and not S.E. It looks like Capcom (Resident Evil) and Naugthy Dog (Uncharted). The game that was suppose to be the originator is now copying its copyists! So, frankly, I'm confused. Two game companies is now making something that looks like a copy of that was copied from them? Why?

Further on, I think this will push more fans away from the franchise than pulling in new ones. By taking Lara out of her element, they are taking the essence of the character out of the game. When I play Tomb Raider, I expect to be controlling a tough stone-cold killah, not a scared, nervous wreck of a teenager. This is not Tomb Raider. This is wrong.

Im split about this game.

On one hand i dont like the whole re-boot idea. As it scraps some of the important things that have happened in lara's past. Example; when lara, amanda and some others explored that tomb in peru as teenagers. Although i suppose it is possible that it could of happened a couple of years after this new game. I think it will be very hard for Crystal Dynamics to link how the lara in this game, becomes the Lady Lara Croft that we love.

Although on the other hand i think that this is possibly just what the Tomb Raider series needs. Though i loved the original games, i can see why people would start to get bored of them, i think that rebooting the game like this could potentially draw in so many people, and it come be the thing that saves tomb raider from eventually fizzling out. I also think that although we know alot about lara's personality, and can guess how she would act in certain situations. There was definitely room for them to explore this area of the character more, and i think it looks like thats what they do in this game. I was also replaying the legend levels earlier today, and was thinking to myself how in the original tomb raider games, in certian tombs i would turn corners shitting myself at the possiblity that something would jump out. But in the most recent TR games, i almost feel like it has become a little more PG, for example i could stand there and be shot and you wouldnt really see any blood, and be mauled by a lion which would push you to the floor, but then you would just jump back up as if nothing had happened. I think that adding in this more realistic, gore factor could bring the tension and gripping edge back to the games. I also think that even though she doesnt use the traditional looking outfit, the blue top is very similar to the future blue top that she wears, and the trousers are pretty much the same shorts that she wears in future games. So i think they have very much so kept with the whole lara look there.

Also part of me thinks that they should of created a new character for this game, who can go on to form her own identity. As it is a little annoying that the Lara we love is being altered.
But on the other hand its the fact that your playing as Lara Croft that i think will keep the older fans gripped. Its almost like the a comfort factor, in that you already love and know lara, so you want her to survive so much more in this game. And it kind of drives you forward in it. If you get what i mean?

But i am really looking forward to playing it!!!! And then that way i can properly decide whether i like it or not!

I really like this trailer, it made me really anxious about the game, I want it to come out! But March 2013 seems soooo far away. My only fear is that the game turns out to be shorter than the trailer. Lately a lot of games are really good but also really really short, and I want a lot of hours of entertainment with this new Lara! And I hope she's up to my highest expectations. I love Lara and at first I didn't like too much the idea of a reboot, but then I thought I might as well give it a chance.

Oh boy... do I...

Tanya you have to do that version!!!

This time, Lara overcomes all odds in order to save herself and her friends. I think it's the most mature and dramatic storyline of the saga, very similar to the Drake's games (Uncharted).

She's so young, so lovely and fragile (I think she's closer to your own age) , but during this adventure she will harden up and mature into the most intrepid adventurer ever.

Can't wait to see your rendition to this new Lara.

Interesting.... I had seen an article on this some months ago, and liked the new look in terms of the advances in graphics. I will say that as a sort of "origin" story, it might be quite the ride, but I would like to see a Lara more like the one we all know in future titles. Yeah, keep the action crazy intense, put her in danger, make it creepy as hell, but give us the confident, bad-ass babe we've come to know and love. We'll see how it all goes, eh?

The new Lara looks amazing. The entire game looks very interesting to try out. Though I laughed so hard at the part where Lara was like: "Ugh. I hate tombs.." in the trailer.

I don't think I like the idea of Lara being in survival mode the whole time. I like how she looks though; she is looks more like a real woman.

I thought the trailer was amazing and I absolutely cannot wait for this game. I like the changes the made to Lara. The old games were getting very tired and boring, as proven by the reviews of the past three games by both fans and gamer magazines alike. It was time for a change in the franchise. And this game will either make it or kill it. I'm expecting the former because I'm optimistic. :)

Lara sounds like she picked up an American accent, and is a bit too whiny for my liking. At least they did make the boobs more appropriate to the previous games though. :D

Reboot! NEXT!
