Looks good. Not a fan of her voice but the game looks like it would be fun.

Pity it got delayed, but I agree, looks very nice.. hopefully it plays as good as it looks.

Are you talking about her appearance? Let's face it, the original Lara Croft was basically a teenager's fantasy. As the series has progressed they probably realised that they needed more realistic proportions just to give the series credit again. I think they've done a good job this time around, she looks much better.

It's a shame about the release date being just under a year away. I'm itching for a good adventure game, I think I'll have to get hold of Uncharted 2 and 3.

Looks like a lot of quicktime events are thrown in there. Hope that isn't the case.

I forget where I read it (GameSpot?) but that was apparently a common concern that they're addressing, supposedly going to still have these events but they're making changes to make it more "free style".

I prefer this proportionate Lara Croft over her previous avatars. Many are finding the trailer good because their brains have had actual time to process all the information on the screen without focussing on boobs.

It's a reboot, similar to what DMC is doing for the Devil May Cry series.

Edit: Wait, wait, wait, I totally meant Tomb Raider: Chronicles! :D

Certainly looks interesting but i hope it won't rely too much on QTE's. I still want the old Tomb Raider platforming. Also i notice she kills a Deer, i hope this is because it is open world and you have to kill to animals to survive and not some mission where it says "kill 3 deer".

Shame to hear Keely Hawes won't be returning to voice Lara Croft. I thought she was the best voice actress for Lara Croft. I suppose because it is a younger Lara, they probably want a younger sounding voice.

Definitely, Keely Hawes was the best voice for Lara Croft. There's no word on who the voice actress is for this Tomb Raider though, although obviously we know that someone has been cast.

I see the Uncharted comparisons (and yeah, that's not a bad thing at all, just ironic since people originally called Uncharted a TR clone), but I also see a little bit of survival horror in there, maybe some RE5 or Dead Space?

I remember playing the first Uncharted and saying, "so this is Tomb Raider but with a guy as the main character."

I'm not overly sure about your idea for it being a survival horror though. I can't see this having elements of RE5 nor Dead Space. Time - and the game itself - will tell though, I guess.

The trailer at :44 doesn't scream Dead Space to you?

This games an origin story, so, freedom to change it up. "new art vision" etc. Was completely uninterested in this game until yesterday.

I agree, Keely Hawes was a great voice actress. I'm really unsure to be honest of this approach to Tomb Raider. Part of me looks at this and thinks that it looks cool and all, but it's just not Tomb Raider anymore. There are no tombs, no ancient civilizations, no globe trotting... If they're going to change the property this much, they should have created a new property. Not to mention the brutal kill stab in the trailer shown at E3, the deer hunting, etc. It just isn't Tomb Raider and honestly, I think all her whining is going to get old too.
