Saw this on Amazon today, come on April the 7th!
Is Lara back to her best?
We'll let you know on the 7th. Looks damn good from what I've seen so far, though.
This Game Is Looking Awsome!
I Must Say Its Gonna Be The Prince Of Persia Killer!
Im Glad They Got Lara Back To Her Best!
Ive Really Liked The Adventuring Done In Tomb Raider And The Videos Of This Look Awsome Especially The Gun Fights And How U Can Destroy The Scenery.
It's going to have to be pretty good to beat the first PoP. I'm quite cynical after the last few iterations and am finding it hard to get excited over this one.
Was the guy that created TR not envolved in this one. I seem to remember him leaving EDIOS after the 2nd one. Maybe with his cretive genius TR may be back on track.
I'm really looking forward to this one. I'm sure Crystal Dynamics will do a good job.
It should be better than Angel of Darkness at any rate. That game was a horror show.
I'm looking forward to this one too, have it pre-ordered for the 360. I think I remember someone saying the 360 version scored 8/10 in Edge magazine, sounds promising and likely to be good on PS2 also if that's the case
Yeah, can't think of the guys name but he's back involved with this version so fingers crossed will be a return to form after the horror taht was AOD
If you want to see the video interview with him
1 min 40 seconds into the video
He left as he wasn't happy with what they were doing with Lara. She is meant to be sexy but not slutty, she is an aristacrate so wouldn't be posing in playboy for example.
I have it preordered for the 360. Looks good
Has there been any reviews of TR for the PS2 yet?
The same creative genius that gave us Galleon?
Not saying that Tomb Raider will be bad but if it's not it won't be down to just that one guy.
I was quite impressed with this version of TR, certainly beats last 2 installments. They have gone back to the basics with some good old fashioned puzzle solving. Controls are pretty much the same but now in gun battle by pressing the triangle button you can aim at something that will create an a'action', ie blowing up a barrel, rocks etc. There is also some PoP influence where close up you can evoke a sl-mo giving you time to shoot away. I've only played 4 levels in the past week of this installment & it does jump from past to present & so far was only dissapointed with one level (on a motorbike) that was very J&D. Tis good game would recommend it, graphics are nice, controls are ok (still suffers same problem with cameras BUT which TR hasn't). I think this game has gone back to basics & I'm enjoying it (so far). Would give it a 6.5/10 so far BUT still early days for me.
I believe there is a pc demo available now if anyone really wants to try it.
yep a couple in the mags. it's getting around the 80-85% mark
Played the PC demo and was dissapointed that the controls/movements of lara were more like Prince of persia (and a million other games) than TR's of old. For instance...pressing back button now results in lara facing camera (rather than backflip), pressing left or right and lara will turn 90 degrees and move rather than pivot on the spot.
Also, why is there an auto-grab? she now automatically grabs ledges rather than by pressing a button. Too easy line ups, just face and jump, a bit like this game was made for children, which is a bit ironic when the original TR helped kickstart the cool and adult image of playstation.
Hope the PS2 version is better.
