The September 2006 issue of Playstation Magazine sports an article
confirming Eidos' 10th Anniversary Tomb Raider game is in fact a remake of
the first Tomb Raider game.

Aw, I expected screenshots. :o

I think it'll be a collection of the best bits from Tomb Raider and Tomb Raider II, rather than a straight remake.

Its is one thing for us to speculate about what the game is going to be, but l would expect someone who is being paid to write an article to have a bit of journalistic integrity. The opening statement of this bit of fan writting is l believe "Since Eidos announced a 10th Anniversary Edition of the first Tomb Raider weeks ago", well we all know precisely what was announced and there was no mention of the AE game being a remake in the official announcement

They seem confident in what they say...a complete remake of the first....gee I dunno what to be hyped for - BEST OF/remake:scratch:

Best bits from both games? If that's the case it will be both games in their entirety as phenomenal as they are.:D

I don't know, that would seem a bit odd. Remaking the first is fine, since that's the one that started it all and is therefore THE classic game in the series. But taking clips from the first two games seems a bit random to me. I mean, why stop at TR2, then? Why not remake bits of all the sequels? Why give TR2 get special treatment and not the other sequels? Nah, I think it's more likely to be a remake of just the original.

Well, back then many did say Legend was what could be considered the true Tomb Raider 3. Unless they were refering to other game in the franchise, I think most still enjoyed TR2. I particularly did, and I disliked TR3 verily, which happens to be the favorite for quite a number of TR fans.

And I disliked TR2 verily.;)
That's the problem, really-- everyone's tastes differ. If they includes pieces from TR2, why not the other sequels? I felt TR2 was where the series hit rock-bottom, and then things got better afterwards. Now, I know plenty of people disagree with me, but we all have our favorites in the series, and Eidos will open a Pandora's Box if they includes bits of one sequel and not bits from other sequels. Some people loved TR3, some loved TR4, TR5, and even AOD. If they include bits of TR2, it's inevitable that fans of the other sequels will feel left out. It makes more sense to focus just on the original game. I think we can all agree that TR1 is THE classic (heck, it started the franchise), even if we don't all agree it's the best.

As for saying Legend is equivalent to TR3, I actually see it more like this:
TR
TR2
TR3: LAST REVELATION
TR4: ANGEL OF DARKNESS
TR5: Legend

To me, these are the games that really felt like full-grown sequels, rather than just expansion packs.
TR3 was an expansion pack for TR2, and Chronicles was an expansion for Legend. Neither really added anything significantly new to the series.

See what you mean. I do believe they'll only remake Tomb Raider 1 (and maybe throw in some extra levels, like Unfinished Business), but I'd be happy with whatever I got. :D Then again, that's just me.

What I said regarding Legend being TR3 is what was on gaming sites and related media. Now whether CrystalD will hear us, fans, or them, critics, is a story left untold... ;)

Im getting this feeling that is actually gonna be a remake of the first series like they did with Wild Arms.

Remake or not I still love the original game. I still get a rush everytime I blow the T-Rex away with the shot gun in the Lost Valley level. :D I hope wihen Eidos does release this game it will be just as good, if not better, than the original.

Long live the queen of video games - Lara Croft. http://www.smileypad.com/v202/Cache/Feelings/Bow.gif

What if *all* of TR1 and TR2 were the best bits :D

I'm not sure how they'd cobble the two together and have a conceivable storyline... Or if the two would be separate, just shipped in the same packet. Just speculation. I'd love to see a remake of both. A good remake.

And I agree with Mangar :)

but STOPPPP.

No bashing geez. And no bashing Core Design especially. Without them, there wouldn't even BE A CRYSTAL D ANNIVERSARY today. On a personal note, I think Core Design should have made their last TR game as Anniversary, a TRUE remake over a re imagining before they get a kick in the boot from Eidos...and I'm not saying Crystal D is bad 'cause I think they did a great job with Anniversary but in all preference, Core is to the heart of Tomb Raider - especially the original. So regardless, what's done is done people.

No, but Crystal (as Americans) Americanized Legend too much.. I believe they may do it again in the future..

I'm not at all against other countrys.. I just find the Americanisms in TR an annoyance.. I love other counties, I recently went on holiday to spain - the weather was beautiful.

ACtually, Core DID make an TRA, but Eidos fired them for many reasons. You can read more here (http://www.tombraiderforums.com/showpost.php?p=2242018&postcount=139). It is 80% finished. You can find many trailers on YT.

yeah, CORE version looked all right. Movement looked sluggish though, but some of the stuff looked cool. If it was 80% finished I wouldve just let them finish it and get it out and THEN fire them. shouldn't of fired them when it was almost completed. shouldve let them go out with at least some dignity

But I cant believe that poster on that link worked for CORE. Anyone can post and say stuff. Plus the manor he presents himself isn't the way someone of his supposed stature would act

It cannot be done, I'll admit TR1 was the same, but the rest weren't.. I guess I just feel quite protective of Lara because it's all England has.. America gets everything, from Kill Bill, to The X-Files..

We only have two cool things.. Lara and James Bond..
