View Full Version : Core Desing - in memory....

18th Oct 2008, 17:00
I love the work of CD, but I will never forget Core and HIS games....Like Tomb Raider. I must say that I hate TR1 TR2 TR3.... But the other TR were good. Special that Tomb Raider: The Angel Of Darkness. I think that AOD has the best story ever, and that dark side. Core really work hard on this game specila when you see that thay work on it for three years!


And do you now what make me cry.... THIS:

"Tomb Raider Update
7th April 2005
As most fans are aware, Lara left Core Design for sunny California and Crystal Dynamics. The best source for more news regarding Lara is either www.eidos.co.uk or www.tombraider.com. Eidos Interactive made this announcement yesterday..."

Yes, I feel such a strong Drive to the Brand-name "CORE-DESIGN", too. They have been the original Creators of Lara Croft, personalized by Toby Guard.
Whenever these days I watch the boxes of the Games, I mention the Original Game-Designers "CORE-DESIGN", from whom Lara Croft then went to EIDOS-PC.
The Brand-Name CORE-DESIGN for me, too, is always connected with Lara Croft.
All those attempts to establish brand-names, after the try of EIDOS, like for example with Crystal-Dynamics, were poor, simply.
CORE-DESIGN will be related to Lara Croft always as the Original Creator.
And since Lara Croft and Core-Design are Trademarks, they seem to be the respective owners of the Character and Personality Lara Croft.
That's, how I like it.
Good Luck, Lara Croft!

Toby may of come up with the idea, but Core Design brought that idea to life. ;)

How I can forget the design team which introduced me to Tomb Raider back in 1996? It was absolutely phenomenal.

Willard, I call TRU absolutely phenomenal.
Words do not describe Core Design's first works on TR.

Core will live on in our hearts forever *wipes tear from face*. :)

Although It's time for Crystal Dynamics to shine and I am more than willing to give them an overly fair chance. After all, their games have gotten better and better which sadly can not be said for Core.

Never the less, the original 3 Tomb Raiders were (and still are) nothing short of ground-breaking and I know for a fact that in 30 years time, I will still love them like my babies, no matter how much games have advanced by then :D

I loved Angel of Darkness! I loved the storyline, but hated the gameplay. If they would continue the storyline but make Lara look as she does now and have her move around as she does now it would be so much better!
