I don’t know about you guys but this is probably the remake i have always wanted to see and there’s finally somekind of info out there…
And it seems “Zip and Alistair will not return, so no headset.”
The big doubt is about music.I didn’t like the constant music in Legend that much and the soundtrack from TR1 pretty much made the game so I hope that they both ring the original sondtrack back and make the music more event-related than in Legend.If you whatch the trailer tho the music seems to be new…It’s confirmed that the guy behind the music will be the same guy from Legend but Im still hoping the music will either be softly remixed or remade (same music played by a (bigger) orchestra or something).
PS:Hope Crystal Dynamics doesn’t forget LoK…Legend beeing a success and this one probably bringing some good money too…I hope they start working on a LoK sequel…
PS 2 :Where’s the great Kurt Harland?Why wasn’t he given the music wheel for either game??
I stopped being excited about Tomb Raider by the time the third game got announced. o:
That’s because there wasn’t really much tomb raiding involved.
Oh btw for those who didn’t know Legend started a bit of the retelling of Lara’s story.TRAnniversary is going to adapt the story a bit but the key story events wll remain.
I know I’m probably the only one excited about this on this forum but to me Tr1 was just something huge and well I’m a remake person : I don’t think a remake alone has the power to ruin the magic of the original game if it sucks.A classic is a classic no matter what comes after it.So even tho I don’t know if they will screw things up with this one there are a lot of elements I would like to see agehn implemented with today’s technology.
PS : the official site www.tombraider.com now features info,trailer and info about the game.I just wish the game would be made for the xbox360 too.
Well you’ll have to wait more to see it with “today’s technology” as the title is still developed for the PS2, so it’s definitely not going to have that many improvements compared to the last game.
As for that one, it was a decent game, but nowhere near what it could or should have been. To be honest, Prince of Persia is the new Tomb Raider as far as gameplay quality goes… They should get Ubisoft to create the next one.
I’m sure Ubisoft would destroy the game.
I’m excited about TRA. But I don’t have a PS2 or a PC that’ll be able to play it. So oh well. Pwned much.
Tomb Raider is one of my favourite games of all time though.
I still need to play Tom raider Legend.

What makes TR is not mechanics alone.As for today’s tech well I consider Legend graphics today’s tech and I’m hoping the game will be announced for X360 further down the road like Legend…
Geoff:play Legend.It’s definately a great game even tho still prefer TR1.It’s better than all the other tho.
It was originally announced for Xbox 360 too, but looks like that version has been cancelled. What wankers.
What makes gameplay is not mechanics alone either, that is not what I was trying to say when I stated PoP is the new TR…
As for being today’s tech if we see an X360 port, well, with the main/first/original or whatever version being on PS2 it still wouldn’t have any meaningful improvements. Same thing I said in my last post really, it’s not like they can do more with the 360 than they can with a PC…
This is a today VS 1996 thing.Regardless of how nextgen the graphics are they are still completely different than the graphics of the orginal game.
indeed.But if you think about it it’s very strange that they released Legend for both Xbox and Xbox360 and now TRA won’t come out on either of those consoles.I smell a Sony-esque plot…
Well, if you smell Sony in this then maybe that’s a good thing? Could it be another pre-release exclusivity period like Assassin’s Creed? Probably not, since it’s not announced for PS3 either, but that’d be funny.
I think the PoP games have been really good but they are not “the new Tomb Raider” by any stretch. As Gehn said there wasn’t enough tomb raiding in the sequels for a while, but in general open exploration of huge stages is what Tomb Raider should be all about. Prince of Persia has really been nothing like that, not that Legend did it quite right either, but the new PoP games are action and adventure first, the sense of exploration is very superficial.
I don’t really have a feeling about this remake though, it could be wonderful, but I wont know if I care until I try it. I can go back and enjoy TR1 on Saturn still, my nostalgia goggles are permanently on and in focus where both Panzer Dragoon and Tomb Raider are concerned.
I disagree, I don’t think the emphasis was in the action any more than it is in the Tomb Raider games, especially in the case of Sands of Time and to a lesser extent The Two Thrones. Warrior Within was a departure from the standard and lived up to its title, much like some of the TR games which didn’t focus on what many people considered the best things of the original.
That said, the action was much more fun and engaging in all parts of the PoP series which perhaps made it seem more focused on it. It also had tighter game flow and no pointless wandering around large areas looking for keys, secret levers, or other objects which as far as I’m concerned is a plus point.
Still, when I recall Sands of Time (which I agree was too easy and short, but atleast not frustrating and thoroughly enjoyable), I remember the beautiful vistas, impressive acrobatics, and neat environmental puzzles/challenges alongside a boss fight or two and the expected - but still clever - ending scene.
Unfortunately, Amy Hennig left Crystal Dynamics a couple of years back, so I’m really not looking forward to a LoK sequel, considering the last time CD tried to make a LoK without Amy Hennig in the picture (Blood Omen 2), it turned out to be complete shit! (they even admit to such!)
Yeah. I’m afraid that’s what’s happened. They needn’t start making all the TR games PS exclusives again.
Al3xand3er, those things that PoP didn’t do that you consider a plus point are exactly why I don’t consider PoP the new Tomb Raider. Just because you don’t care for some aspects of the game doesn’t mean those aspects are meaningless or expendable for everyone, they may be a big part of what makes the game special for someone else.
Kadamose:Well BO2 was made by Cd’s B team;Amy wasn’t the only one out of the pic.Well I’m kindda afraid they don’t get the story right without Amy but I still trst them;she wasn’t the only one responsible for LoK’s greatness.
Well, I did say “as far as I’m concerned”, and I did say “I disagree” so I figured it’s obvious that my posts were written simply to express my disagreement to what you or others said and not present my opinion as something that should be shared by everyone. You don’t need to emphasise the “you” to make me or anyone else understand that.
PS: I was mostly talking about the dull, pointless, aimless bits of TR3 in particular. TR1 didn’t really have any of those, except perhaps in the final levels that dragged on a bit.

She was responsible for the writing, and that’s the most important part. Her play on words, especially in the intro to defiance, was sheer genius. It’s almost poetic.
For the record, I think it can usually go without saying that everyone is just expressing their own opinion. If I was being heavy handed in my response it’s not because I misinterpreted the way you stated your opinion Al3xand3r, but only because as a real fan of the original TR I genuinely objected to the idea that PoP could be seen as a direct superior evolution of the Tomb Raider experience, since I think they succeed on very different levels.
But, as always, that is of course just my opinion.
I absolutely adore the original Tomb Raider - IMO it’s still the best. So, I’m looking forward to this remake with equal parts of excitement and dread…
