I quite like the zombies in Resident Evil 4 that moved their heads out of the way when you aimed at them and sometimes spider things jumped out of their heads. Or maybe there'll be deformed creature things coming out of the mist/rain like in Silent Hill? What do people think?

I think Lara wouldn't stand a chance against Pyramid Head, tho seeing as how he's a punisher I doubt he'd be interested in persuing her. Unless she's got some skeletons in her closet no one is aware of.

Zombies, I dont think so, more likely deformed creatures like you said. They said that this is a more realistic game then the others if I remember correctly,so... zombies are not real creatures:). I'm thinking natives,savages.

In all seriousness tho, I'm up for SOME kind of weird creature/monster. I dunno about Zombies tho. There seems to be enough Zombie games out there already, so I think Zombies would dull it down for alot of people. Some kind of Lurker/Tyrant hybrid thingie tho, bring it on.

I think what they mean by realistic pertains more to the style and characteristics of Lara and then different major elements of the game. That doesn't rule out "zombies" or any undead creature. Especially with the early enemy concepts released a few months back.

No zombies, no vampires, no aliens, not ever. Tomb Raider has always kept away from such cliché themes. There's no reason to dumb down the series after the reboot.

There's about one hundred videogames about zombies, only one about tomb raiding. Maybe TR is just not your piece of cake ;)

Maybe ... there could be zombies in a tomb?

Yes but still, zombies in tomb raider, it just doesn't sound good. I would be a bit disapponting for me! Anyway, we'll see later on when the game is about to be released.

I don't think they'd make them actual zombies.
Probably more along the lines of some ancient, ritualistic cannibals:scratch:.

There were supposed to be zombies in Tomb Raider Legend. Ironically in the Japan level.

Resident Evil 5 is probably my fav new game in the last few years but still I don't think zombies fit with TR. Something more like some the RE bosses such as manji, Popokarimuand uroboros monsters. I like the cannibal idea too. The most important is that the enemies are scary and the bosses more so.

Actually this is something I read... I'm sure of it.

I'll see if I can find it again then... providing that is what I read like.

http://www.tombraiderforums.com/showthread.php?t=66593 - There's that that shows all the stuff they cut, like levels, moves and weapons that sort of thing.

I hope there will be no supernatural creatures (although I'm sure there will be). That wouldn't be Tomb Raider and it would just harm the series. Animals, natives and that's it, no more strange enemies.

Man, I'm glad they dumped this. Would we have to fight against Takamoto and his thugs through the rest of the game if they didn't? :eek:

No. He would have died in that level anyway (http://www.spectraljin.com/Tomb_Raider/Storyboards/Tokyo_Confronting_Tamori.jpg).

Cool, thanks for sharing these. I didn't know they ever thought about zombies in TR:L. I'm still glad they dumped the idea though. Zombies are just overused in games and movies IMO. They're a too obvious choice, they always make me wonder if someone literally ate the screenwriters' brains.

I've never seen that Daniel Cabuco's portfolio before. I was looking through and found a picture of Amanda's pants.
