If Tomb Raider is not good, then there is no point.

I am kinda getting bored of the companies constantly trying to make Tomb Raider better and then failing. I am super excited about the direction the new one is going, but if it aint good then they should stop making TR games.

The last three Tomb Raider games (that is Anniversary, Legend, and Underworld) were pretty good. They didn't reinvent the wheel, but they were fun to play. The new one looks great and I'm super excited to see more. I think they'll pull it out and make a good game.

In some ways they probably would have been better of using a new name for this game and starting it out as a new IP. 
 
However Tomb Raider still has a fan base and the name/branding sells games so Eidos/Square wont give that up until the games literally do not sell because of that.

@VelvetLore04: I heard good things about Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light as well (or is that not a Tomb Raider game?).

I heard good things too. I probably should've clarified that out of the past three I've played. Hmm, I should probably pick that up now that you mention it.

Dude, tomb raider has been pretty good for a while now. Crystal Dynamics really know their stuff. The problem is that people stopped caring about tomb raider after it was eviscerated last generation. I have no doubt that the new reboot will be good, I'm just scared they'll change too much to try and get that kind of audience back.

Not had any issue with the latest Tomb Raider games. Prefer them over the bile of crap that came after TRIII up to Angel of Darkness. "I feel much stronger now!"
