View Full Version : Which theme song should be used?

So, which one would be best?
Obviously it won't be an exact copy of something from a previous game, but would you prefer a variation on the classic them, a variation on the Legend theme, or something entirely new?

I say "Varation On The Legend Theme." The classic theme was great, of course, but that was for the old series, and it's been done enough now.
The Legend theme is equally beautiful, and since this game continues that storyline, it makes more sense to use some variation of that music.

I loved the Legend one although if you go on youtube and you type in Tomb raider underworld theres some videos with a ''Supposed Underworld Theme'' And it sounds good a bit like TR1 :D

The classic one is Tomb Raider. Nothing will ever be right but that. It's like when they tried to change the Star Trek theme in the first movie. Yeah, it's a movie, but it's still Star Trek! It's about how the music makes you feel; it just gives you that familiar tingle.

I see what you mean but it worked for Legend, I loved Legend music is was brilliant, although classic with a hint of classic will be perfect :D :thumbsup:

I don't know much about Star Trek, but do all the different Star Trek TV series have the same theme song? Since this is a new TR series, I'm fine with dumping the old theme in favor of the new one.

Besides, I'd get that "familiar tingle" from hearing a variation on Legend's theme now.

Heh, I disliked Legend so intently I couldn't tell you what the theme was. :D

But the four ST series are four distinctly different things: different crews, different locales, even different times. I'm talking about the first movie that starred the cast of the original series. It should have been the same because it was the "same show" that people originally loved, just blown up one the big screen. They rectified the error with the second movie, and the original movie's theme eventually found a home as the theme to the second ST series, The Next Generation.

I like the Anniversary theme. It's her original song, just changed around to suit the re-make.

I will always love the original-original, because it holds so many fond memories of such a good and classic game. Also it's originality from when it started.

I loved the Original too but then the Legend theme came up with something totally different and I really liked it. I would like a Legend and Original mixture, would be prefect but then again everything can't be prefect :D

Ugh, not rock music. I mean, I love rock music, but not for Tomb Raider. I want something evocative and moody/atmospheric.

Yes, rock is good, but I just don't think it works for a TR game. One of the things I loved about the original game's theme (and Legend's theme) is that they did such a good job of creating an atmosphere of ancient places, and they did not try to be hip or current.

I could imagine David Arkenstone doing a good job with the TR theme.
