@HubrisRanger said:That's just because, for like the first time ever, Tomb Raider looked good. In more ways than one.@mnzy said:But Uncharted was never particularly like Tomb Raider, or vice versa, this seemed to be. At the start at least. As I said, shit hooked me by the end.Yeah, saying that Uncharted is just ripping off Tomb Raider is like saying Warhammer rips off Warcraft.
@GetEveryone said:Okay, all I could think during the majority of this was: Uncharted clone. I'll admit, though, the conceit is pretty cool. The end sold me. If it's anything like they seem to be suggesting, ala survive on an island, I'm all for it. Have a niggling feeling that isn't the case.It's true but really...Tomb Raider was like Uncharted before Uncharted existed.
No Tombs to Be Found In This Debut Tomb Raider Trailer
Agreed with this. One just has to look at Blizzard's cinematics. Was just about to mention Blizzard, gone are the times of Japanese design being above all else, talent is internationally shared.Thought I'd fix it a bit. The Japanese have really been lagging behind this generation, with the obvious exception of PlatinumGames, and it's a sad sight to see the giant go out with a whimper.
Is this the first Tomb Raider developed by Square?It's not developed by Square, it's developed by Crystal Dynamics and published by Square Enix. Though Square Enix do actually own Crystal Dynamics these days. Crystal Dynamics have done the last three or four Tomb Raider games and SE published Lara Croft & The Guardian of Light last year.
The Wikipedia page says:
"Sections of the island are restricted to the player until Lara is able to perform specific physical abilities achieved via a 'skill system', or obtained the necessary equipment to advance."
Sounds like Arkham Asylum / Metroidvania style exploration.

Damn kids.@PhatSeeJay said:Lol, nicely done sir.@phrosnite said:No, they are both different takes on the same source: Indiana Jones, which in turn was inspired by Allan Quatermain - who was partially based on Frederick Selous.Uncharted copied Tomb Raider, not the other way around. It just did it way better. Lara deserves an awesome game.Kids these days, huh?
Kids these days, huh? :p
what u guys said!
I have never had any interested in tomb raider games.
This trailer (and granted it's basically just a 3 minute teaser with no gameplay), is awesome. The kind of tone they are setting with this trailer is great, and frankly there isn't another game with the kind of mood and setting that this trailer seemed to imply.
Whether the actual game will reflect that at all by the time it get's released remains to be seen.
