    nice, really looking forward to it.
    Thankfully I was in a "different place" when angel of darkness came out so I never got to experience it. But i loved anniversary and I got use to the wierd slow targeting after watching a few youtube video tutorials :D

    Sounds good, I really enjoyed legends (relatively short though it was) so I've been looking forward to them continueing the story they started there.

    Looking forward to this, I wish Crystal Dynamics would take a good look at Uncharted and rip off its combat system, a good mix of that and some good complex TR puzzles would be an awesome game, though I'm sure this will be great without it.

    There's one thing i don't like in TR franchise, Even knowing its a game i feel really sorry to kill wild animals like the great felines, gorillas and such...

    Can't they be something like bad guys?...

    BTW... How about some thicker legs and booty? Why just Boobs?

    Looking at the title picture on the front page made me think "Tomb Raider- Underwire"

    Are there any friendly animals in it that you don't have to shoot and can just watch?
    Or is Lara "RSPCA" Croft still trying to cause the extinction of every living animal in the world?!

    There are no animals you have to kill, from what I saw.

    When are her boobs going to be reasonably proportioned to the rest of her?

    Or do anatomy lessons cost too much?

    Who except a bunch of indoctrinated schoolkids frets over Lara's bosom size or her alleged cruelty to digital carnivores? Next, we won't be able to enjoy Tomb Raider games because Lara is supposedly exploiting indigenous natives by intruding on their holy places or some other stupid ****. When is this insanity going to stop? Personally, I can't wait for the game. I want to explore some virtual ruins and shoot a few virtual tigers along the way. Is that alright with you zombies? Can your teachers' political agenda bend just thaaat much?

    Don't bother answering. I really don't care. This game is going to rock and I'm going to enjoy it. :lol:

    I'm really looking forward to this game. The first two Tomb Raider games were among the first 3D games I ever played, and they've kinda stuck with me. Although most of the other original games were terrible, I really enjoyed Legend and Anniversary, finding them to be a lot of fun despite a few flaws. The changes they've made this time around worry me slightly, because I'm hoping the realism hasn't pushed aside some of the things I liked about the most recent two. Still, I'm optimistic, and I look forward to trying them out.

    Hopefully they've done something about camera controls on the consoles, though. On PC, with the camera bound to your mouse, the game plays very well. On the consoles, though, the camera has a bit of freedom and is handled by the worst AI imaginable. This is particularly bad because the movement controls are camera-relative - as you're running along a narrow ledge, the camera will switch direction to show off the view, and suddenly you pushing the control stick forward is now telling Lara to jump off the cliff, rather than hug the ledge. She dutifully obeys.
