So let us be clear here. This is a brand new game here, not just a total remake of the original game. Eidos will use all those great key moments from the original game such as that awesome T-Rex chase and re-imagine it on the Legend engine. Does that mean some of the content from the original game wont make it into the 10th anniversary edition? Who knows. I just know that this is actually a pretty good idea. Alot of gamers (myself included) believe that Tomb Raider 1 and 2 were the best in the series (barring Legend of course) and to "remake" it so to speak on the new Legend engine, is a great idea especially if moments like the T-Rex chase are faithfully done.
Hopefully Eidos wont rest on its heels on this one, and let Crystal Dynamics craft another classic in the series that has lived now for 10 years and has been a cultural phenomenon. Oh and anyone notice that since this game wont be coming out until Spring 2007 that the franchise will actually be 11 years old? Funny. Some people are complaining already that the game wont be on next gen systems such as the Xbox 360 or Playstation 3. Well rest assured sometime in 2008 next gen gamers and PC gamers will get the next game in the series after Legend.
