QUEST!

Edited by RVonE

Even though this game is still pretty far out, I'm definitely excited about what they've shown so far. I really could go for a new TR adventure right about now.

Posted by KillyDarko

This was the most interesting demo I've seen on E3 so far.

Posted by something_clevar

I'd like to pickle Lara. Know what I'm sayin'.

It looked great, but at the same time it just looked like Uncharted reskinned.  Having said that, the first time I saw Uncharted I thought I was just looking at Tomb Raider reskinned, so I really don't know how to feel.

Looks bloody brilliant!

That's not necessarily a bad thing. If they can learn from what Naughty Dog has done with Uncharted and somehow make that their own, the new Tomb Raider could turn out to be a solid experience. We'll see.

they really beat the crap out of her eh

Posted by DiscoDuck8k

Very optimistic about this. Shame the release is so far away.

Pretty good with the dynamic dirt/water thing.

Posted by TheHBK

Looks good, but thats because it is Uncharted.  She has to start game injured?  And on an action quest instead of going back to.. tomb raiding?

Posted by Aleryn

Looks good.  I just hope the gameplay pans out, and there is a sense of open world exploration as hinted at in other previews.

Do want.

Posted by Romination

So far, this is going to be my game of show. It's just such an amazing departure from anything in the series before.

I love the complete lack of a HUD.

Too many games like this clutter the screen with health bars and experience orbs to remind you that you are in fact playing a video game. It flies in the face of creating a cinematic experience and pulls the user out of the fiction.

Posted by pakattak

@phish09: I'd see why you'd think that at first glance, but reading up on what Crystal Dynamics is going for with this title, I'd say it's going to be a completely different experience.

I'm always down for survival games... it's such a great concept, but very rarely do developers get it right. I'm hoping Tomb Raider succeeds.

Loves it!

It looks like it could shape up to be a very interesting game, although the constant self-narration seems like an awkward mechanic despite its purpose being fairly obvious.

DO LIKE

as i have noticed - Bokeh effects from camera lens are the hot new thing this year - this game pales in comparison to BF3's bokeh

Edited by JeanLuc

I love how she actually gets injured and hurt. Don't mistake me for a sadist or anything, its just that most video games lack any real consequences when the player is hurt.

Posted by TheMustacheHero

This looks like the best thing that's ever happened to tomb raider

Posted by Puchiko

if you turned off the video and just heard the audio, you coulda sworn they were watching a porno

Posted by phrosnite

Awesome! Go girl!

Posted by TheMathlete

I am super excited for this new take on Tomb Raider.

I really love the look on this new Tomb Raider. Second most interesting gameplay demo so far.

Posted by wafflez

@wasteguru: so you mean if I get shot, hiding behind some boxes WONT make me better?!

Posted by avantegardener

Wow, looks genuinely good.

Posted by Siphillis

Quicktime events continue to be just as stupid as when they were introduced on the SEGA CD. 
 
Other than that, this is very interesting.

Posted by Anjon

@wasteguru: Tomb Raider: Angel of Darkness had an injury mechanic, but everyone hated it. Also, it looks like all of the injuries in this game are scripted, ala Uncharted.

Posted by haggis

Hmmm. Well, it doesn't look bad, it just doesn't look too much like Tomb Raider--which could be good, or could be bad depending on where it goes. I'm definitely more interested in this than I would be in a non-rebooted Tomb Raider game, but something just doesn't click with me yet. There's still quite a while until release, so that could change between now and then.

Posted by clubsandwich

to me this has been the best game of E3 so far.

Posted by Parkingtigers

This reboot looks amazing.  I felt genuinely concerned for Lara watching this, I almost feel compelled to play the game to make sure she makes it out alive.  Will be watching the progress on this one with great interest.

Edited by 234r2we232

So this is a remake of Tomb Raider? 
 
Also, the whole the demo being quick time events (kinda like the ship level in Underworld) looked no fun at all :/

Posted by Vonocourt

Looked fucking phenomenal. Really dug the constant allusions to realism, like her crippled walk and or her doing a few tumbles while she was sliding.

Just wish that random explosion wasn't there.

Posted by TOA_Doom

Wow, she really got messed up....

Posted by TheDeadComedian

The only thing sexist about me is I can't stand seeing women get hurt. Sort of in the way Jeff can't stand looking at needles or someone shooting up drugs in movies. That won't stop me from playing, but I found her screaming distracting. It sounded to girl-y for Lara Croft.

Posted by Anjon

The myriad of instant-kill QTEs (well, in the Game Informer interview, they mention them all being instant-kill), makes me sadface, but I think the sound direction is potentially worse. It sounds like the voice actress doesn't understand what pain and fear sounds like. Hopefully they'll fix that before release? Or maybe I'll use a different language setting.

Posted by Funky_Pasta_Tommy

Shame her moans of pain really annoyed me, coz otherwise that seemed quite decent.

Posted by liquidcabbage

I know she's supposed to be young in this game but THIS IS NOT WHAT LAURA SHOULD SOUND LIKE!!! BRING BACK THE CLASSIC LAURA VOICE!!!

Posted by fatalbanana

I think I get why so many people are comparing TR to Uncharted, they are similar in a few ways like the tropical setting and arguably similar structure and protagonist. However, I personally always felt that TR was a more of a Platformer/Puzzle game while uncharted felt more like a tried and true 3rd person shooter. with that said I never actualy plaid an uncharted game so i might be totally wrong.

Posted by onimonkii

now that i've actually seen this, people are really blowing the moans and pants out of proportion.

Posted by Kajaah117

That voice actor is incredible. Those first few moments were extremely brutal and intense because of how convincing she sounds. If the rest of the game has this same focus on survival and not invincible badassery then I am on board. I love me some vulnerable protagonists.

Posted by benjaebe

Absolutely adore it. I kind of wish they didn't focus on what I'm assuming is an action-heavy exciting introduction and highlighted the survival elements and exploration I've heard them talk at length about, but I understand it's a presentation and they wanted to do something exciting. Still, looks brilliant and I can't wait to see more leading up to release. It's looking great for being a Fall 2012 title.

Posted by Xpgamer7

That was really dramatic. I like it.

No you're right. 
 
Uncharted is basicaly a TPS, with a few scripted events, and jumps.
Posted by AURON570

am I the only one that burst out laughing when the prompts showed up near the end telling you to alternately mash "RT and LT"? 
 
This looks pretty awesome, but I don't know whether it's just the sex sounds or the actual intensity of the situation.

Edited by Xymox

"What kinda contraption is this?" 
It's a video game puzzle, Laura. You should know this by now.  
 
This is... Interesting. I like that they're gonna try to breathe some fresh air into this franchise: I'm actually interested, so that's something. I'm... Actually excited about a tomb raider game? It really is the 90's again. 

Posted by ashton

K im not watching all this. I want to know nothing about this game

Posted by LiquidPrince

Looks like the learned some things from Uncharted about how to present these swashbuckling scenes, and dramatics. Looks pretty awesome.

Posted by Shadowsquire

What the hell is that thing?! The damn Olympic torch??
