:eek: The animations are stunning!!! Incredible work!
I still don't think melee attacks should replace gunplay in TR9, it just isn't TR style.
Thanks for sharing :thumb:

I'm all for melee combat. With gunplay it's either going to be circle-strafing (boring), or cover mechanics (un-original), so melee combat would be great and would suit how acrobatic lara is.

Maybe a bit more realistic though, it seems a bit chop-suey and over the top.

I think these animations would have been perfect for Lara's Shadow. What do you think? :scratch:

I think they are perfect for Lara, she looks perfect here doing them. I agree ggratchet. They really suit how agile and acrobatic Lara is... they strike me as the natural evolution of the adrenaline moves in Legend. If thats what melee combat looks like in the game then I'll be happy. Hope there is some key gunplay in there though.

though i agree with Chriss99 about the gunplay, i think it would be a welcomed change, thought i would still want there to be guns of course :P maybe if this "leaked info" is true, in that case it states lara is young, hence why she has no guns, that's just my opinion tho...

Someone stated a while back that maybe on this adventure, we find out how Lara came to favour the dual pistols, which i think would be rather cool. We found out how she got her brown backpack in TR4!

hmm that would be pretty interesting to see, i imagine it would go like this... "ugh i hate this damned bow, i wish i had something more along the lines of two pistols". then she goes and finds them :D

The demo was made by Nelson Tam (http://ntam3d.com/resume/), who did indeed work on TRU and Lara's Shadow. There's also a longer demo reel on his site showing some of his LS work.

The moves in this demo do look great. They kind of look like melee version of the headshot moves that were in the final game. Perhaps they weren't interactive enough? They might have played like QTE's and those aren't as well received as they used to be.

ooh that was a cheap shot Josh.. Besides I wouldn't really mind a crossbow. It'd be rather
TR4-esque!

Those were some very impressive moves.
I liked the realism with the first jump, how she didn't just cling on automatically--it makes the game more realistic--which i like.
The other moves were cool too, but i found them a little exaggerated...and that they kinda didn't match what the physics might be...i don't know though.

it was good but highly overstylized, i think that if they put TOO much hand to hand combat in this game it's gonna resemble tekken, and that is one thing i would NOT want to happen to Tomb Raider... as long as they equal it out with other elements, idc what, i will be okay :D

Those are certainly some impressive melee moves. :cool: :thumbsup:
:hmm: They just seem a bit too epic for me, i.e. if I were repeating each of those moves over and over in a level (let alone the whole game, or replays) I would just get sick of it. The bread & butter of combat should be plain... and so long as they don't become gimmicky, adrenaline/acrobatic moves in this kindof way would be cool. :cool: :)

:eek: Wow. That's some impressive shooting. (I really don't want TR9 to be a Wii rail-shooter, though :p).

I feel bad for laughing at this.
CURSE YOU!
:(

Anyways, I feel there should be a lot more combat in this TR.
I love raiding, I love figuring out puzzles, but, jesus, is it too much to ask for some ACKSHUN?

Either give us more enemies, or make the enemies harder to kill.
In TRU, sometimes I just sat around playing with the tigers for five minutes because they were just to easy to take down.

*i REALLY love that move where Lara knees that guy and then flies over him and fixes her glove*

but i agree with rg by saying that alot of the moves are too epic :hmm:
