Lara Croft in Tomb Raider 8 should be much more sexy or not?

I guess people buy such game because they need beautiful woman and cool adventure, story? This is why this game differ from many others on the market...and probably why people chosen this one...

Please choose one option below:

1) Lara Croft should be much more sexy
2) Lara Croft is sexy enough
3) Lara Croft should looks like "Dark Lady" e.g. Amanda
4) Lara Croft should looks completely different

FYI: This version above is not from game... it is custom made outfit... question is regarding the original version...

Maybe it would look awesome, indeed, but it could turn out to be a pretty lame game, a photorealistic woman doing all those stunts and stuff. I like the way she is now and would take it over anything more real (in any aspect) anyday. :)

No. She is sexy enough. I have a feeling that, if Eidos did anymore with her looks, she might look like a hooker/slut... But that's just my opinion.

I hope, that CDs improve the graphics, if we are to wait more than a year. Otherwise, what's a sequel withot improvements. I think, Lara doesn't need to be a lot sexier, or she'll eventually turn into a porn star.

Did you mean the picture at the top? It reminds me of the video "Stupid Girls".:D
And I think, Laras current look is sexy enough.;)

Exactly.
It may work with movies and other games.
But NOT with Tomb Raider.

If she was 'improved', I'd never buy it. Never. It'd be considered trash in my not so humble opinion.

Im so freaking sick of how they're starting to put sexual content in recent games. Dear God, don't get me started on this topic.

She is sexy enough, they should concentrate more on the Tomb Raider aspect of the game now, and less on Lara herself

Lads and ladies, you're right. Lara is sexy already. If CDs make her sexier, the rating of the game will rise from 12+ to 21+ .

that is so true!
it stopped being balanced somewhere between TR2 and TR3, in my opinion.
as for Legend, I really love this game, but it felt like it was mostly about Lara and less about the game itself...which is too bad because the game itself is really good.

Headache - I'm glad that we agree :) I think that it's cheap in general, low entertainment, really. the people making the movies\games can come up with better things to amuse us, don't they? ;)

No, good looking doesn't always mean whatever is listed. BUT, it can begin to look that way since some people consider hos to be sexy or whatever. And the term 'sexy' sounds ho/slut like. Maybe 'beautiful' is a better and less strong word.

true.
you don't need to show a lot of skin if you want to be sexy.
it depends on many other things: Aura, body language, being well-groomed etc...
it's easy to show a lot of skin, but showing too much of it is just cheap.

I said sexy enough already, but wouldn't mind it if they put it up a notch :whistle:

Although I agree there is a potential to make look like a hooker.

Personally I think the key aspect to it would be beauty/elegence as opposed to just plain sexiness (LOL, as you can tell I'm a bit of a n00b here).

In theory models of TR2 thru TR5 are the same, except as the technology was evolving, the TR engine was inching forward by having more polygons and better textures. I would also consider TR1 in the same category, but in TR2 she looked a bit different from it - not so different from TR3-TR5 though. :)

I voted "More sexy" but it's not because of how she looks but what she does. Even though Lara is exceptionally attractive, you could easily replace her avatar with Curtis and you'd end up with exactly the same game. The story and character interaction in the game barely notices that she's an exceptionally attractive woman. No one ever seems to hit on her, flirt with her, underestimate her because she's a woman, etc... She also never seems to take advantage of her abundant attributes. People pretend that smart woman that are beautiful don't use their sexuality to their advantage, but that's a load of crap. If I were a woman that looked like Lara, I'd take advantage of my looks (up to a respectable point) in order to take advantage of others :-) That's how much more sexy Lara could be.

cheers,

I don't think so...of course could be better :D but when You look at the previous version e.g. TR3 (I have some experiences with that) You will see there is some improvements in this area :D so maybe in the next TR8 will be better but I am not sure that CDs cares about it... :cool:

Regarding Her looks... I guess it could be better... :cool: Specially at the beginning of the game (intro) and in the Japan level at the beginning... :cool: of course the looks is a question of taste :cool:

Well, what did you expect? Do you really think CDs would leave Lara exactly the same for another 10 years?
I believe, that the changes CDs made are only for the better.

Even if they did have the 'same Lara' in Legend, she'd still look different. Either way you can't avoid it.

well, I personally think she looks the same, it's only the graphics that is diffrent and more-modern. just to make myself more clear - TR1 Lara and TRL Lara look like the same person. ;)

[edited: wait...did I quote the right person/post? whoops. sorry.]

ermm...yeah. :lmao: okay, that made me look stupid, right?
but it was directed for the people claiming Lara being "completly diffrent". I disagree with that.

She's great the way she is as of Legend.

More outfits though? Yes please. I want to see the Ripped Gown make a comeback, sans shoes of course. Give us an underwater level that she explores in a bikini and with a grappling gun! Have her dress up a'la Sophitia from SoulCalibur - I think she'll look great with a shortsword and a shield! More motorcycle leather outfits, hell, more of everything - I think Legend started down the right track and should keep it that way.

I'd like to see an ability to select the outfit before the mission start though in the "normal, first-time-through" gameplay. Wardrobe should be restricted to sensible choices (you wouldn't send LC running barefoot through the snow just so you can ogle here, would you?) and whatever you've already unlocked.

I agree 100% I think she looks perfect in Legend alot more realistic and less cartoony. Maybe they can have some sort of sim Lara in future games with alot more activities to do in Croft Manor for something for you to do once you finish the game and have nothing left to acheive.
