it would be good if we could tour London on her motor bike and buy Lara some other good outfits and maybe different hairstyles and shop and stuff. it would make the game a little more fun. and also going to a gym and performing new moves and increase your stength and also maybe buying new weapons too. lol i have heaps of ideas. i just think it would make the game a little more fun :)

Nah. The game is supposed to be about raiding tombs and having adventures, not playing "Lara Croft Dress Up Doll." I'm afraid if they start putting too much focus on things like giving her new hairstyles, etc, it becomes a Barbie game rather than an adventure game. Next thing you know, it'll be in the children's section, in a bright pink box, and will include a doll with a hairbrush so you can brush the Lara doll's hair.

Don't forget the action phrases that dolls say :p

But yer this is Tomb Raider not grand theft auto... She has a manor... and Tomb's no streets. That isn't what Tomb Raider about and why do people say London? She doesn't live in London lol.

If her Garden was a few more achers and could ride a bike around and do some target shoots whilst on the bike would be cool though :thumbsup:

i would suggest a pretty pony instead of a motor bike ... and maybe she could pass a lake and indulge in a nice fishing mini-game ... and she's a tomb raider, for crying out loud~ where's the gold coins? Lara should collect gold coins and have a pet talking dog follow her around ... rowf!
:cool:

Firstly, Lara lives in Abbingdon, Surrey, not London.

Okay, I like being able to choose an outfit for Lara, either in the manor or from the options menu, that is good. But hair and make-up? Going to the shops?

In AOD Lara wondered around Paris going into cafes and pawn-shops and discos to obtain stuff for others in order to complete the mission and gain information. And you know what? It was boooooooring with a bright red Snooze button. It was kinda interesting having the roleplay element but even that got tedious. So going shopping down London would be just pointless. Getting her hair and nails done? That so aint Lara it aint funny!

I hate to be so harsh, but if you want a doll dress up game, get Barbie or Bratz.

May I point you in the direction of elouai's (http://elouai.com/)doll site. :)

I thought it was Croft Manor. :D

NTL the game is about Lara raiding tombs and discovering long lost relics and treasures, not going shopping in London Town Square. :scratch: What I like to see are more custom made gadgets from the environment Lara is exploring. Remember in the MacGyver TV series, he made a bomb out of duct tape and a series of chemicals. Why can't Lara do the same thing?

I did'nt think she lived in London. I thought she lived near Cornwall...? Well, ONE of her homes.

I don't know where Core's Mansion for Lara was situated, but the Manor for Legend and TRA is situated in Abingdon, Surrey. I don't know if Abingdon is fictional or real, I know of a place called Abington...

I have no idea where the other Croft houses are, but they are looked after by the National Trust.

Ya, it would be nice to drive around london and shop BUT you have to remember that guys DO play this game and i don't think that they are going to want to dress Lara up, unless they get to see her naked while changing. :nut: also, TOmb raider is about Raiding tombs, and if we got to roam the streets of london it would be too much like TR Angel of darkness, and we all know that that game was a bomb. (considering the fact the controls sucked and the boaz fight was and still is impossible) I just cant wait for the trailer.

I think training with bikes, rafts ect would be a nice edition to croft manor - shooting winston for target practice...LOL! Maybe even make the maze thing more interesting - target practice while you run, or trying to find an secret entrance to lara's vehicle collection?:eek:

The Game's name is "Tomb Raider", not "Barbie Raider".

If you want so much Lara to go in London, dress like anything and buy anything, download Lara's skin for The Sims and do it yourself. Lara is not the kind of woman to do that kind of things.

6th Feb 2008, 21:19
NOT A GOOD IDEA. LOL

I THINK YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO PICK WHICH OUTFIT YOU THINK IS BETTER FOR THE ENVIRONMENT BEFORE THE LEVEL BEGINS. AND THAT CAN AFFECT HER MOVEMENTS AND THAT...

EG. shes trying to climb a wall with trainers on, and shes slipping. (kind of an example of what i mean, but a poo1 lol.)

I TOTALLY AGREE WITH YOU
SPECIALLY WITH THAT SHOPPIN' IDEA , IT'S GONNA ROCK
MAYBE IT CAN BE A BONUS FEATURE AFTER WE FINISH THE GAME WHICH LEADS TO MORE OTHER FEATURES (SO THAT THE GAME DOESNT END SO FAST I FINISH EM IN A DAY ONLY ;-) )

RinoTheBouncer
8th Feb 2008, 18:12
Totaly agree with you.
I TOTALLY DISAGREE (Sorry)
But the game should contain some spices !!!!! :-P
if not in the main game , then as a bonus feature after we finish the game

I Just Wish
That The Game Will Be Well Programmed Unlike Traod When She Can See Through The Door Or Appear In Different Costumes In A Cutscene From Those In The Game Play
Or When We Change Outfits In Tr Legend In Kazakhstan And She Supposed To Take Off The Jacket And She Stays Wearin It Hahahahahahah Lolz Lolz Lolz

Yea, all those extras would be so cool- NOT! The game doesn't come out until next christmas, do you honestly want it delayed anymore just so you can have some sort of RPG fix and pretend to play the sims. go buy the sims (i bet you already have it) and go download a lara skin from one of the numerous websites that contributes to playing people.

I totally agree with wanting to be as cool as lara, but seriously, we don't have to live a whole day in the life of Lara croft. Just the fun parts that she does while raiding tombs(hence the name) and kicking some butt.:lol:

i'm not too sure- tr always been about raiding tombs and that's what it should be. i think goin into london as though shes a tourist sounds a bit to gta to me...

It would be fun, yes.. But it doesn't fit Tomb Raider..
Though a better gym would be nice. I think the one she has in Croft Manor is too small.

Bad idea, it'd make her a Barbie. I like that idea of driving around outside in the garden's of her house though.

BARBIE:eek:

I didn't know Barbie had a brown haired braid and shot unsuspecting people and locked other people in freezers?:eek: AND WAS BRITISH:eek:

:D :lmao: :lol:

And the only problem I've found while being a new player to AOD is the evil loading times. And the lack to shot the shopkeepers, and the lack of jumping on items, and the lack of control, and the lack of....

IF the evil loading times (I have the same problem while playing anniversary) were killed completely and the part of London was scaled down to a two block radius(or just one building) and it was done by xbox live or internet connection only than I would have no offical problem.

But making it a part of the actual game would take too much disc space and therefore leave us with shorter tomb raiding sessions.

I could imagine someone who will have GTA IV PC version modding the main playable character into Lara ! :eek:
GTA IV: Lara Croft edition ! I mean, if they're TRULY a TR fanatic a mod.... could.... exist. :D :lmao:

If someone does a mod, I'll purchase the PC version as well, download it and she will reign over Liberty City !!!!

It's so amazing i posted these before and i love to see the game being more fun while many others here opposed me sayin ... IT'S NOT THE SIMS but it will be lovely ......

I would like a manor like the one in TR3

with a maze, many rooms (also a hidden one, and a kitchen and bathrooms), a place where you can ride a vehicle, other place where you can ride a motorboat (or other aquatic vehicle), a track with some challenges (not only the gym), and please, no locked doors...

well, I would like to explore the entire mansion :D

I enjoy seeing some outfit changes in gameplay for weather purposes. A tank top in shorts is quite ridiculous in cold weather! But I think adding more outfits to the line is like making Lara more of a doll than an action adventure heroine.

The idea might draw in more players from the younger generation. They'll be interested in changing her outfits in order to customize their gameplay. But since I've been playing Tomb Raider since I was in the sixth grade, the idea of Lara's Fashion Closet doesn't make gameplay more appealing to me. :)
