So what did you guys think of the trailer?

I am pretty excited by it. :D The environments look amazing, the puzzles look both challenging and fun and the combat looks awesome. I like the look of the cut scenes, and that we get to see Lara and Totec up close. Though Totec's not as good looking as in the render and it seems his hair stays static. Was a little disappointed that they are just reusing past music from the games but that's ok I guess. Keeley's voicing was alright, nothing I'm looking forward to though but i do like that we will hear voices. :) Oh and there seems to be the return of boss battles! :D

This looks like it could be a fun game, I like the camera viewpoint reminds me of some other/older games. Also glad to have a new game to play in co-op on the pc.

The hell was that at the end? Tomb Raider and World of Warcraft crossover?

And what's up with the graphics? It looks like this computer I'm on could handle it. Atleast increase the quality of the textures. Perfect World International on lowest settings looks better than this. And really, Lara's clothing look like they are from the Sims.

Screw it. I'm playing Himalayan Mysteries instead.

I love the trailer! I think the environments look amazing and very detailed, much better than it seemed on those screenshots we got! The traps are just incredible, so many deadly traps! :D:cool:
The puzzles look challenging and the combat looks fun. I love Lara's model (but where did her backpack go?), looks like they finally made her hands smaller, lol. Keeley sounds great imo, a lot tougher than before! :thumb:

And yes, welcome back Boss fights! :D:wave:

Can't wait to play this!

Well that was certanly unexpected.

I love the picturesque, somewhat cartoony colour scheme, a lot better than the grey, gritty stuff in Underworld that depressed the bejesus out of me. The platforming and action looks fun, and I always love explosions. Good stuff, well done.

Okay, I'm a bit grumpy. But CD can do better than that. Heck, even TRLErs can make better games. Sad but true :(

I'm looking quite forward to the game now, I'm guessing it'll be great for me and my friend who've spent so much time playing games such as Gauntlet Legends together. :)

15th May 2010, 10:56
It was awesome. I don't think the screenshots avalible look like the gameplay videos we saw. Also, I was happy to see the return of boss fights, I'm not normally a fan of boss fights in games but the Tomb Raider boss fights I love. Happy to hear Keeley again as Lara, she makes an awesome Lara.

15th May 2010, 13:32
alot better than i was expecting, looks really good, i was expecting it to be quite slow paced but from the trailer it looks faster AND they have boss fights thaaank yoou :D, the lack of them in TRU made me a lil sad but they brought them back... :D good times

@Love2Raid, looks like we will be having a game soon aye ;)

Love it! Awesome trailer!
Great environmnets and Epic boss fights! I can see that already!
Who's the voice actress? Is that Keeley?
The graphics look worse than TRU but I don't care! This is going to be fun!
Too bad it's a downloadable content. I'm just not into these things.

rofl the quote "WELL THAT WAS CERTAINLY NOT EXPECTED" she's got that right XD

looks like they have given keeley some decent lines this time around :D

Ants_27_
15th May 2010, 15:47

Tis Keeley but she sounds a tad different but its pretty much the same as she speaks in Ashes and everything else she's in, thus making it even better.

@Danielsun - it does appear they may have a script to which has some good dialogue in.:D

Danielsun_
15th May 2010, 15:48
indeed, she can put more expression into it, this time it looks like they have made her human with the whole outta breath thing that doesn't happen in TRU good stuff ahead :D

Ants_27_
15th May 2010, 15:54
Yar... I mean personally I've always prefered her in TV stuff as she tends to give more into the part than she does with TR, but I don't believe that is her fault. So this looks like we might get near the performance she gives in things such as Ashes.


Also, (off subject a bit) if in this or the next pillar game I hope they add special features that has an Interview with the various voice actors... I find that a lot more interesting than watching some CD employees bang on about what ever they did.

Though I enjoy that but sometimes you just wanna hear the actors talk about their characters.

Danielsun_
15th May 2010, 15:59
yeah i agree with both points i like interviews with the voice actors, i think its mainly down to the fact i know who their are, keir is no longer a mystery man as his last name has now been posted on a website (trchronicles) lol :(

but this does look really good, i can't wait for it, shame we can't play as you got a ps3 :p

Ants_27_
15th May 2010, 16:03
True but I'm hoping Microsoft announce a new console so I can get a 360 for a cheap price:lol:

The only time I've heard the topic of Lara Croft crop up in some shape or form was with that Rhod Gilbert guy when she was in the audience...

And on Keeley's twitter page she doesn't talk about it... instead she decides to tease fans by saying she knows the ending to Ashes.:( Which is obvious that she knows!

Raider126
15th May 2010, 16:06
@Danielsun, I have an image in my head that before recording the voices they made everyone run around the outside of the room, it's a little mean but it seemed to have worked.

Danielsun_
15th May 2010, 16:57
aaaw why can't they just make them hyperventalate, then pass out, that would be more fun :p

chriss_99
15th May 2010, 17:57
It's good Keeley's back! She's the best voice actress for Lara ever!

IT'S NOT TOMB RAIDER, FOR GODS SAKE!
it's a side game.

btw, i love it ^______^ looks fun and epic.

I know that is side game "FOR GODS SAKE". I just dont want to people really like this game, because in that case they will start making future Tomb Raiders like that, and if Tomb Raiders start looks like Diablo or WOW,and if that happend i will stop playing. For me Tomb Raider is a mistery and exploration, not killing a lot of strange creatures.
I apologize for my english.

Danielsun_
15th May 2010, 18:27
@milens im not sure where you are getting the WOW reference, i have played WOW and i cannot see anything like WOW...at all. If you can prove me wrong then fair game i will accept that.

As for the Diablo reference, its just an isometric view point, it is something different Diablo does not own isometric view point camera, the same way TR does not own the 3rd person over the shoulder camera...its just a view point


As for the strang monsters, TR has always had monsters in everything play the first game and when you kill all those dinosaurs, wolves, bears, centaurs etc. get back to me, TR balances mystery, puzzle solving and combat very well, it even has boss fights (save TRU ) if they make a trailer to sell to the public they need to show the action etc they cannot just show some tense atmosphere that wouldn't be a good selling point

and this is not a TR game and they have no plans on making TR games having an isometric view point you must keep in mind this an arcade game, this isn't an attack on you or anything but i am challenging what you are saying.

That's a bit harsh though isn't it? If players want to play a Tomb Raider game like this then they should have the ability to do so, thus what the point is of GOL really... along with being a cheaper way to test ideas.

They won't replace GOL type games with the pillar TR game as I doubt it'll generate enough money just to survive on that... I might be wrong but...

"...descendants of Totec went on to forge a mighty empire that lasted untill the arrival of the conquistadors."

What could this possibly mean?!

I find the arguments against enjoying or supporting LCGoL to be specious at best.

"Stop buying Star Wars figurines, or else they will stop making Star Wars movies and only make figurines"..... say wha?

"Don't buy a World of Warcraft t-shirt or else they will stop making World of Warcaft and only make t-shirts..." huh?

Having a healthy, separate branch of the Lara Croft intellectual property will only enhance the odds that the financial backers of those who develop Tomb Raider games will continue to back them. This will result in additional, more traditional titles. That's what 99% of us want.

Anything you can do to support the overall franchise will help to ensure its future.

And oh by the way, the isometric version looks really interesting. Don't think so? Look at a game called Trine. Very similar and that game, although 'simpler' in design, has incredible game play quality.

Don't let the simplistic approach fool you, these types of games can be very challenging from a purely physical point of view, not to mention puzzles and timing runs.



If you give it a try, within 1/2 a level you will be hooked.

Ehh looks decent at best, nothing screaming ''must buy'' to me. This all comes down to how much they're charging, anything 800 micro points or higher is not a buy for me

LOl, Wow! This little jewel looks fun. Though I got a "Harry Potter" vibe from Lara's last scene in this, the dialouge sounds witty, especially if the voice actors panting.

Don't know why but I'm a bit giddy about Lara panting, almost makes her human...


Also tis the first time since legend, Lara is backpack and gloveless.

"...descendants of Totec went on to forge a mighty empire that lasted untill the arrival of the conquistadors."

What could this possibly mean?!

It means Totec is very old and the empire his descendants built is long gone.

I hope you are right, I really like Tomb Raider series and i dont want to they change it to much.

But change is what keeps series allive... By keeping it the same and charging £39 for it will eventually go against said franchise... People are going to start spending money elsewhere as £39 is a large amount of hard earned money.

Like me for example, if I don't see much improvement over underworld TR 9 is going to fall on my miss list. But if they change it like capcom did with resi then it will easily be back on my to buy list which is pretty empty this year actually.

lol I do have to say, the environment in some of these screenshots seem to remind me of Ankhahet: Old Kingdom.

I'm just looking forward to massing up on that machine gun and tearing through packs of spiders! pew pew pew pew pew pew pew pew!!! =D

17th May 2010, 19:15
it will remind you of ankhahet : old kingdom, because that is based off of real architecture, as is lara crofts environments.

p:S WoW = fail imo nowadays :p

p:S WoW = fail imo nowadays :p

Never liked those bloody MMO games... whatever you call them... the players of them take things far to seriously, though I suppose that can be said for many game franchises.:mad2:

Plus the idea of buying a game then having to pay money monthly in order to play it seems such a stupid idea.

Small little rant there, sorry... but my opinion of them still stands!:lol:

Danielsun_
17th May 2010, 21:00
i used to enjoy the game but then i realised i was wasting a fair amount of money and time and i could spend it on other things, thus he gym is spawned :D

More information to come, but I think it's safe to assume thatRuneScape Gold (http://www.rsfarming.com/), like Glory of the Hero, this is going to be a fairly time-intensive and PUG-unfriendly Meta.
