Latest Tomb Raider

Is anyone waiting for the new Tomb Raider?

I'm curious about the changes they're making to Lara. But I have to wait a LONG time to get the game this side (In SA).

The last I read was that they were going back to her origins and how she became the tomb raider legend we know today. Could be interesting don't you think?

it's not a need for speed, but the game has always been really good. Even with tomb raider angel of darkness. Everyone said the game was bad and it wouldn't do well.

I'm just hoping the new adventure is as good as all her others.

I have followed the tomb raider games from the first one. I think there are only a few I don't have and that's because they aren't available in South Africa. The only one I could not finish was anniversary. I got stuck at one spot close to the end where you had to battle this huge rock thing. I will probably have to finish it one day.

So far though, I've read that they haven't found a voice for her yet, and if they have, they aren't saying anything. I know millions that would love to be her voice.

After launching of the Tomb Raider: Anniversary, they released another part one year later named Tomb Raider: Underworld, late in 2008. Now they are planning to release its next edition this year. Still no name is given to it and voice characters are still not finalized. So we may say that we are gonna see in late 2011, till than wait and watch.

I'll pretty sure am never gonna get tired of Tomb Raider's new stories in games. The moves and graphics are indeed improving every new game release but what I really like about the game is it's addicting as any shooting game.

I have kept my eyes on "toys" Nvidia manufacture for my graphics cards, and my recent wishlist included a virtual reality set that you use while gaming. I would have to import it, but the thought of playing a tomb raider in virtual reality really gets me wanting the set more and more. It works with a pair of glasses and an infra red (I think ) receiver. the headset has built in earphones, (similar to the glasses you see with built in Bluetooth), but it make for an unbelievable gaming experience, I think.

I've played a number of the Tomb Raider Games and really like the fact that Laura is transitioning from a cartoon character into a real person. I love the fact the new Laura is a lot more "real world" with a more understandably proportioned body unlike all previous titles.

I also like the fact they've gone in a different direction with her face now introducing a little vulnerability into the look. Hopefully the game itself becomes a bit more serious and darker in nature. If so it could possibly be a series reboot which is really what their after.

Anyway, I have been keeping up on the news but sadly there's precious little in the way of details at this point.

One of the few action adventure/non-FPS games that I ever liked. Looking forward to this title release.

erm if you're referring to me, then the he would actually be a she

I have followed lara from her first game to her last. Underworld rests on my shelf recently played to the end and I'm chomping at the bit to get the next one. Usually a new tomb raider is released after two years, but this time it seems its taking longer, but that may be my own impatience.....

Either way though, The gameplay has always improved regardless of the hiccups caused by angel of darkness, which I still believe is an excellent game, I think the best thing they could have done though was let crystal dynamics take her over. She has become more human, and more proportioned, but we're also getting to see more of her story, which demystifies her slightly.

If anyone ever wanted to know why my dog spins, it's because of things like this.

Sorry about that Dr

Now I just need some help pulling my paw from my mouth.

Actually they did release a Tomb Raider last year, Tomb Raider Guardian of Light; you can actually dl it on Steam I believe. The game reviewed rather well but I never played it because it was a "God view" game rather than the typical 3rd person view most of us are accustomed to when playing Laura.

I couldn't agree more with your take on AOD. There was such a kerfuffle around how buggy this game was and how much the franchise as a whole had suffered huge financial losses due to either it or the movie (each blaming each other if I remember correctly).

Whatever the reason, Core Design was stripped from developing Tomb Raider Games and it was handed over to Crystal Dynamics. This is why you saw a rather drastic change in both gameplay and presentation between AOD and Legend.

Here's some light reading on the Core Design and AOD story:

I will take a look at it when I have had my skype meetings for the day. It sound good and the graphics look amazing.

AAAAAH angel of darkness had so many problems. When I bought anniversary, I got a free dvd that had a documentary about the games and the character. Right down to how she got her name. Everyone played pass the blame when AOD bombed, but they were all sure of a few things though, It was released too early, and the controls was a disaster.

I remember being all over my keyboard trying to get her to do anything. The fact that she couldn't hang onto anything for too long had me up stress creek without a paddle, and then you still had to deal with talking to everyone and interacting, asking questions and the like.

One thing I will say though, the storyline was good, the graphics, well if you looked at its predecessor, was infinitely better, and the game was difficult to play, which had my navigator and myself biting at our nails and fists when Lara refused to comply with her controls.

Anniversary was a much better game though. I remember comparing it to the original game and found that they stuck pretty close to it. Luckily though I only had to fight one T-Rex instead of two, which in the new game would have been, for me, unplayable. The controls were a lot easier to get to grips with and I didn't once have to think of installing my game controller.... which seemed prevalent in AOD.

The only thing that really took time to master were the adrenaline shots with the centaurs. It was the only way to even try beat them, which meant that my navigator and I played for about a month before we finally got past them, out of sheer frustration.

I also saw that square Enix now publishes the game instead of Eidos, so that might also be another plus for the game. My favorite out of all of them? Would hands down be underworld. I had tears in my eyes when Croft manor was blown to smithereens, and when Alistair died at the hands of the doppelganger. We spent games getting to know them only to have them taken away suddenly. It was sad really, and getting to know the ins and outs of croft manor, exploring, seeing how she lived etc. and now its gone, until its rebuilt.

I didn't even know that there was a new one coming out, thanks for the post I'll be looking for information on it. Tomb Raider underworld was pretty good but my favourite was either Tomb Raider 2 or 3.
