Legend + anniversary = Underworld

Thats how I see the Lara body being.

The Underworld renders are cooler though. The eyes are so cool and real and um yeah.

And the underworld render looks more real than the cartoony legend.

Underworld Lara.
She looks MUCH more Realistic, and more like herself. Instead of looking like a plastic woman, from Orange County (No offense).

Underworld lara, she looks more like the AOD model which i loved. A darker and more full of attitude.

The legend lara looked like a plastic Barbie doll with carefully styled hair and 10 tonnes of make-up which matched the pushover that she was untill the end of legend.

i'd say underworld, but she needs a hair fix, her hair should be much darker ;)

Underworld-Lara has more Pixels, as usual.
That's why the graphics-quality will be better of course.
Legend was fine enough from the graphics-standards.
The growth of the graphics-quality will make her look better simply.
But the important Things are the new properties.
By the way, Lara Croft should be now having gotten through the Age of 40 yet. Doesn't she look simply perfect for this Age?
It is the Property of a Human to keep looking the way, Lara Croft does.

No ugly Larson, tattooed Jaqueline Natla or fat Kurtis Trent would ever reach the Level of a Lara Croft.

That's, what I love her for.

She will not change her Habit, her Style or her Physics and Look as an Icon.

Who cannot stand, that Lara Croft is the Beautiest even in her Age - well, go ahead and try to compare the Games. But Lara Croft herself never changes until the very highest Age, which I assume at about 75.

It is good to look for a life long that way.
It is a stable Look and Beauty.

And only Men like Me can compare with it.
That's why she is my Icon.


Personal Wishes on Tomb-Raider-8!!

LL looks better. :) Though I don't know much of TRU Lara's personality, so it'd be unfair to choose out of personality.

You cant choose...

Both COMPLEATLY differnet, one is next gen (properly) one is slightly next gen and not next gen.
One is two years old one is modern (still not even finished)
One is out the other isn't

Legend was EXCELLENT for the time it came out, graphics was amazing.
Underworld, can't say 100% at moment. But graphics looks good, but will it dissapoint.
You never know, they are hyping it up it might not be as good as we expect when the game finally comes out.

Can I say that their both better than the AOD model of Lara?:p :D

you can easily say that the TRU model is better than AoD.

Lara looks amazing now! sure some people won't like it but that just confirms how really cool she is now ...
(because THOSE people are obviously pathologically oppositionally-oriented)
:cool:

Personally, I like Underworld Lara better. I enjoyed the edgier look in AOD She looks more intimidating and it makes her more fun to play.

Don't get me wrong. Classic Lara is brilliant.

I suppose what I'm saying is: Raiding tombs is fun, but it's nice to see the James Bond part of Lara, too. AOD was more James Bond than tombs and it was refreshing to see after the main focus of the other games being loaded with Indiana. :)

I prefer the legend lara, the underworld's seems masculine..her face expressions are tough and her hair ruined...i dont know

Lara looks so cool in Legend n Anniversary but it's more realistic in Anniversary than Legend but in Underworld they wanna make her look like Legend but older look too and they fluidity n flexability will be like anniversary but in NextGen Programing ... Lara looks 40's in Underworld and Also sexy n Respectable so it's a great mixture with more pepper n spices lolz ... i love Underworld looks ;-)

Her hair is ruined????:confused:

Just because you can't see the braid/ponytail doesn't mean its not there. We don't have a view of the side or back so no one but the developers know.

But it is rational to state that she still has long hair as the screen shots show it flipping around her.

(her hair is nice and brown)

She's 40, really, um ok. I thought she was rather timeless. HEY in game years she's only 10. Barbie's like 60 or more and so is James Bond. Indy is what, in his 20s. :D

underworld lara is the best lara ive seen now! :)

When Crystal Dynamics steered the TR ship and revived the franchise, I was absolutely amazed at Legend Lara's appearance.
Now, I'm blown away even more by Underworld Lara.

So, my vote once again for the third time is Underworld Lara.

~~~

David070 ~ I wondered the same thing. How in the next gen consoles, PS4 and XBox number 3 (coined by people as XBox 720.), the environments and Lara would seem like. :eek: :eek:

:rolleyes: <~ Imagines

Right now I feel like I am the only one who likes the Legend Lara. I just liked her face, it was more defined in features, where as I feel like Underworld Lara and Anniversary Lara had their features kind of lost. Althought I am NOT saying I do not like the Underworld one. I think that Underworld looks way more natural and life like and I think when I get the game and play it I will get used to it and prefer her better in the end.

So yeah, I guess I like them both.

Your not the only one. I loved the TRL Lara, in some of the stills I've seen TRU looks a bit bony and harsh-looking, although I'm pretty sure she's gonna look great in next gen... Anniversary did have something missing...

I think Underworld Lara if my favorite from what I've seen. This has nothing to do with the graphics, poly-count, etc. (Although those are certainly welcome changes as well.) I just like her general appearance.

Legend Lara is great. It maintained Lara's personality while adding it's own style.

Anniversary Lara did a wonderful job of capturing the original essence of Lara with a higher poly-count.

Underworld Lara is just plain awesome. It maintains Lara's original look, personality, etc. However, it's a bit more edgy and mature. She seems older and more confident. I really love the Underworld design.

OK , how do i say this .Fine , i'm just going to say it. Legend Lara is in my opinion soooooooooooooo much better than uw lara . Uw lara look like someone smashed her face and then she got unsuccessful plastic surgery to make it better . No offence but i feel that Legend Lara was LARA CROFT and UW lara is some sort of wannebe lara that looks so much incredibly older than she should be .I just can't help feeling that way because it feels like that when i play underworld lara just won't be lara and it's just not right (to me anyway).:(

Well, I like to think of it like that one Bowflex Home Gym advert on TV a year or so back. To prove the effectiveness of the item, the advert had, among others shown, a mid-fifties grandmother who, at the most, barely looked to be much past her early thirties.

And, well, all that running and flipping and climbing and such Lara does is a lot more effective than some stationary weight-bench...

Without a doubt, Underworld Lara is far superior to the Legend model. I liked Lara in Legend, but she was slightly too Barbie in physique and makeup. TRU Lara is much more natural and realistic; almost real. She is stronger looking without being too muscular. Graphically wise, when they aged down to TRA Lara and then aged her back up again with a newer engine, inevitably, she looks different to how she did in Legend. She's more TRA only older. If that makes sense.

Legend/Anniversary Lara or Underworld Lara?

Hm, tough call.

This can clearly only be solved in one fair and even manner.

She's not 40**** :mad2: :(!!!!!! She's only 30!! And by the way, there's a new model for Lara in Underworld. The old Underworld Lara was eliminated & now they have a new one, she looks perfect:thumbsup: ...:D

There are some who say she's more 35 to 37. No one really knows because the information has been alternating slightly over the years.


Do you mean the pic of Underworld Lara as shown in my banner is old ?

If so, I can't wait to see the new Underworld Lara. :thumbsup: Do you have a referral link ?

Most people seem to say Underworld but I think she looked better in Legend. Obviously the graphics are better with the new one and she does look more realistc but she's looking less and less like Lara :( To me her face in Underworld just seems a bit generic.

Actually she is 40 in her original bio by core it gave her d.o.b as sometime in the 60's. But under CD'd rule...she's ageless- the way all good hero's should be- Except Sam fisher and Solid S.

Legend/Anniversary with a mix of Angel Of Darkness face + Underworld body = Great
I'm okay with the underworld face but she looks cross-eyed and a bit thin-faced. I liked her slightly fuller Legend/Anniversary face. Also there's a redness around her eyes which makes her look kind of older than she is. :cool:

Underworld Lara - More detail, better clothing, more realistic, slightly more bad ass/tough look. She would be the best Lara for me if she just had the braid. :o
