Just got AOD, and it's been fine to me - the main thing I like is the controls are very similar to the "old TR"...

And, she looks better...

i agree w/ you :)

i was verrryy pleased about the controls! i thought they were going to be totally different. i thought itd b the mouse and awsd keys and then a bunch of other random keys. [like for wolfenstein and max payne]

Sounds good, JunoJim! :)

I'm very happy to hear the controls are like the old TRs! :D

Unfortunately, I will have to wait awhile before I can get the game. :( But, when I can get it, I'm going to grab it and start playing it! :)

YES! YES! YES! This is the best news I've heard in quite a while. I too was kind of afraid with all the bad comments of people and although I haven't got the game ... YET :D I believe that I can believe you when y'all tell me that the controls are pretty much the same as in the previous Tomb Raider-games. This is truly FANTASTIC news!! Although I have no problem playing videogames with the mouse (like in my only two other games: Max Payne and Splinter Cell) I still prefer the keyboard alone.

It's the same for me when I'm working ... I try to do as much as I can with the keyboard. It works faster and so much easier! :)

Why did Lara put on her jeans in reverse?
(or is she actually looking back in this picture, twisting her torso almost 180 dgr.?)

That was the only screenshot I took - it is a move she makes, where she twists around and looks back !!! Interesting...

I'll post some better one's tomorrow nite...

There is a mouse option, but I haven't found it necessary, or very useful either...

There are a couple bugs, but not anything serious - maybe there's something useful, like the old corner bug !!!

You guys need to get some girlfriends (and I mean girls who are friends :p), and I'm surprised that Jess didn't say anything. lol

Did you honestly not know that there are jeans now that have pockets like that on the front?

TombRaiderChik

hun, those look like back pockets ;) yes there are some jeans that have pockets like that in the front, but they are much smaller. can't you tell the difference between front and back pockets? :p

also randy, take a look at the belt ;)

My friends that I've seen wearing them, haven't had smaller pockets. And maybe it's a built in belt! LMAO! No buckle, no hassle, there you go! :D

MBFGW moment: Give me a word, any word. And I will show you the root of that word is Greek..... you see? robe, winter there you go! lmao ;)

All in all, maybe she's just a fantastic contortionist. Next will see her fitting into a small replica of the glass pyramid of the Louvre. :p

a built in belt hu? hmmm.

how about the word kimono? ;)


and as i said, our lara is just too damn flexible :p

She's just looking back.

It's sad that I tried this, but it's midnight and I have nothing better to do! :p If you just try to turn like that, it's not that hard to do. Plus, her jacket is probably hiding that she's twisting around.

So you see Jess? In the end, we're all just fruit. :D

Yes, that's why I took it, cause it's such a weird shot - she's turned approx 180 at the waist...

The mouse is used in conjunction with the camera, but for movement I'd stick to the keyboard alone.

Told ya so, Told ya so, Told ya so... :D


I am really enjoying the game on PC...It's great......and I can't wait to see it on my PS2, as well. :p
Every TR game I have played has had little peculiar bits......
