And to think I thought the AOD concept of Lara was waaaay advanced!!

Good comparison survey. You can really see a change by TR4 with a very slight smoothness to the face occurring in TR3. The transition is subtle making her still Lara all the way.

I completely agree with TRBeth. Great comparisons:thumbsup: You can even compare TR1 to TR7 and say "yeah, they're both Lara"

That's a good rundown of the evolution of our Lara. Nicely formatted, :)

Would be good if we could compare the in-game lara's

*hint* ;)

Cool comparison shots!

This is why it really surprised me when somebody on these boards (I forget who) said they were "disgusted" with how the new Lara looks. To me, she looks like a natural evolution of what she always was-- more realistic, less exagerrated, but still Lara. I think Legend's Lara is the best yet, because it takes what was a cartoonish image in the past and makes her seem real.

Does anyone else think that the new Lara (farthest right) looks a bit like Jolene Blalock (Subcommander T'Pol) from Star Trek: Enterprise?

I think the new Lara looks a lot younger than the earlier versions! :rolleyes: Or is it just me...

She is a lot younger.

Oh, so the game is set in the past?
Before the first Tomb Raider even? :)

Oh, sorry, I misread that. I read "The new young Lara looks a lot younger than the old young Lara."

Dismiss my last answer. The real Lara is not younger. ... not in all levels, though.

Just wait until we can compare this Lara with Lara's of the future!

Thanks for the ingame comparison shots!
You know, considering her "hottie" reputation, she's a strikingly fugly woman until AOD!

Now that you did the in game comparison, she looked really angry and pissed in Tomb Raider 4 ;)

If I had to put the best looking Lara to the not so great looking Lara (in the out of game shots) it would go sort of like this:

1. TR7
2. TR1
3. TR6
4. TR2
5. TR3
6. TR5
7. TR4

Lara to me has to much of a long chin in TR4.

Thanks, malaikat!:) :thumbsup: Love this thread!:D Really shows that Legend's Lara is a natural evolution, not a drastic change.

The in-game pics of her from TR1, 2 and 3-- she looks like an old, has-been movie star who used too much botox and replaced her real eyebrows with draw-on lines (I could kind of picture her yelling "NO WIRE HANGERS!!!!!" now that I think about it.) This is why I never understood those people who said they liked playing TR because they liked looking at Lara... she's not remotely attractive! (well, I guess it's all subjective, but to me, she's one of the less attractive women in gaming until AOD when she at least starts to remotely resemble a fairly nice looking woman.)

Strikes me more as Jessica Alba (Dark Angel Series) for some reason. :rolleyes:
