Yes, it really couldn't be anything else, could it? :)

I like it a lot. Now it really looks like an artifact and a mechanism. :cool: Nice.

Thanks CatSuit&Ponytail for that great box art image. This is the best Tomb Raider box art and one of the best video game box images of all time.

Wow, that's a surprise!:eek: I have to say I like it & I think Lara looks great. I had a feeling the Scion might be on the cover or the original TR1 cover recreated, which I wouldn't of minded either.:) I really like the Scion design & the overall atmosphere of this cover. I wasn't expecting to see the box design this early!:D

Wow, that looks amazing, definitely one of the strongest game covers I've seen.

And, I'm surprised to see it a 16, it doesn't affect me, but we were all under the impression it was a 12 like Legend, maybe the blood and gore of Atlantis knocked it up notch.

Can't wait! :D

The cover really captures the classic Tomb Raider feel, no? Lara is lovely, as usual. Another first from Crystal Dynamics! (I kinda like it better than Legend... Legend just showed Lara's face... this cover will give passerbys a real "Oh, you play as Lara and you have guns and shoot annoying monkeys" impression.)

Thats because Eidos and Sony struck a deal with all the dads in the world, so they'd get the first chance to play it instead. :rasp: :D

Nice cover design btw.

SHOOT that's amaizng! The scion is there:D! And I somehow knew they wouldn't use the pic that resembled the original cover back in '96. They seemed to reused one of the pictures/renders I've seen in Legend...

What a great cover :thumbsup: Now let's see if the game is good as the box art.

I don't like it, the cover is kinda bland. Lara looks like a she should be on "The Next Top Model" tv show. And she looks very artificial, in a plastic surgery kind of way. :(

I think that Lara should look more natural and tougher.

Say I gotta ask - is it normal for this game (a TOMB RAIDER game) to be rated 16+? I'm used to the rating system here (ESRB).

Goes from (I'm gonna skip EC and leave out Adults Only rating):
E -Everyone (All ages)
E/10-Everyone from 10 and up (this was a kinda recent new rating)
T- 13 and up<- - this is the rating a TOMB RAIDER GAME would have.

So yeah my question is is it normal that the rating is 16+ in Europe? 'cause I know there's 12+ also. So that means if the game got more "matured", than it must be better someway:D

CatSuit&Ponytail
11th Feb 2007, 19:15
The 16+ rating is apparently the result of the tightening of the rating of games in Europe, it's not really an indication of anything changed in the game itself. :)

... urm, cat did you notice that this strange sentence was really a triple-anagram tribute to you (i.e. each color phrase is an anagram of CatSuit Ponytail) ...

maybe it was a bit too convoluted. the clues were in there (C, S, P ... sigh ...)

anyway, i wanted you to feel special for bringing us the box art ...

... now i feel kinda special ... :nut:

don't mention it! you're welcome. :) :)

Rabid Metro, thank you :o I didn't notice, of course, the internet has made me shy away from sentences that contain caps where they shouldn't be! :o So my mind just bleeped over your skillfully crafted anagram, and I am sorry for that. :) (I also bleep over words I don't know and numbers automatically, so don't feel too bad. ;) )

I am honoured that you liked my posting of Lara's new game cover so much that you went to such inventive lengths to thank me.

Now use that ingenuity to thank the real heroes Crystal Dynamics and Eidos for making such a beautiful box art so I could show you it here. ;) :D

I like it alot, just need to see those PS2 letters replaced with PC-DVD :whistle: . I even like how she looks less real or photo alike. Its easier to relate the cover model with the ingame model this way.

There is alot of overdone Lara art already.

I bet it'd look even better with a white Wii strip instead. :rolleyes:

I like it, I just hope sinse it is a 16+ there will not be any swearing, but I'm completely behind the idea of blood and violence:D

Thanks for clarifying, CatSuit :thumbsup: I wondered why it was a 16. Although virtual blood hasn't scarred me yet :)

This cover art is gorgeous. It's kind of reminiscent to the first movie's DVD cover, too, with the seal of the All Seeing Eye behind that HIDEOUS digitally altered picture of Angelina. This art is miles above that crap cover.

Can't wait for this game. I have a very good feeling about it. :rolleyes:

Somone did post a copy of it with text removed, although I'm not sure if it was here, or on tombraiderforums.com.

I'll have a look and see if I can find it.

It's just fan art. :) The TR logo itself used on that composite is actually from Cradle of Life.

in the BIG pictures, you can clearly see blood vessels and tendons under her skin.
... and it most have been cold, cause she's getting goose bumps!
... and the fabric in her clothes, you can see threads!!
... and you can read the inscription on her guns!!!


They say that even if you were to ask, Lara would never tell. :) :rolleyes:

awsome box, but why would it be a 16 and over if it doesnt have any bad language or blood n guts? AOD was a 12+ when it was way more scary than the looks of TRA...?:scratch:

Rivendell
16th Mar 2007, 16:38
An article a while ago stated 'there will be Some blood' and I think the removal of the blackouts has contributed towards the 16+

Either that or its just down to the fools a PEGI who've now decided legend is also worthy of the 16+ rating.. :scratch: **** :confused:
