Why? The only thing I see wrong is the shadow of Lara in the second picture.

I haven't seen anything like this in the official screenshots on the site. Maybe those are just early production shots before they got the shadows fully developed. I'm sure they won't have stuff like that in the final version of the game.

Its just screen caps of the TR:L movie provided by TRfans. Anyways I thought that the little area of darkness by the turret was its shadow?

:p

I think that saispas means that the shadow of Lara and the shadow of that thing behind Lara are in different directions, and that's not very logic.

Hmm...could be. I don't remember seeing that movie, though. In the picture, the turret's shadow should be as long as Lara's since they are about the same height.

actually,in AOD,these bugs are quite obvious....though,it's a bug not very serious,it makes me quite unpleasded when I see it.

I hope so, and I think if the developers have noticed that, they would have developed the shadows already:D
Maybe the problem is not very serious, but if CD want to make the game PERFECT... :p

Actually it looks really stunning for a game that is early in development , remember Halo? the quality of the game was very low but six months later (hopefully the same thing for tombraider) the graphics were jaw-dropping , plus the shadows weren't the only problem with game , if you watch the gameplay demo you can see alot of bugs (like how her health is not affected by anything not even the machine gun!) but that is just normal , no big deal , all of those bugs will be fixed by the time the game is released hopefully!

I don't think that is a bug. They probably left infinite health on so, while showing the demo, they wouldn't accidentally die.
