    Personally, I think she looks a lot more 'realistic' this time around. I know that term gets thrown around a lot, but when coupled with more realistic graphics, the cartoony proportions of the original Lara would have looked weird, to say the least.

    I've heard some people think she looks a bit too pretty/busty, but I think she looks fine, and when compared to other female characters attire, I wouldn't really say it's revealing. And no designer is going to make a character look ugly...

    she's completely fine, but her eyes freak me out... is she supposed to be half Asian or something? is that A Thing Lara was in the old games?

    I mean she should probably be a bit more muscled but it's not a big deal

    Really hard to tell if that was said as part of the marketing or not. Says a lot about how terrible they handled it either way.

    I think her boobs could get bigger and THEN she is perfect.

    I think Cortana is way over the edge compared to Lara.

    No she's not pretty enough, also her clothes should be more revealing, also that rape scene was too short.

    Its not that she's overly pretty or busty that bothers me, its when they do the obvious 'over the shoulder, look the down the shirt shots' that just make me sigh.

    It's not about whether she's pretty, it's about how emphasized her prettiness is.

    No, she's not, at least from what I have seen.

    However, I wish women in games that are supposed to be asskickers would look more like, well, asskickers. My main example is Commander Shepard in Mass Effect 3. I envision my Shepard, when she takes off her armor and relaxes in civilian clothes, to have a body built like Gina Carano or Ronda Rousey. Absolutely beautiful women, but they also have muscles from actually fighting and training. It's the same problem that movies have really. I'm sorry, I don't buy that Zoe Saldana can beat up huge dudes in Colombiana because she looks like a stiff breeze will knock her over. And it's also why I enjoyed Haywire so much as a film. They had a woman doing action scenes that looks like she does that kind of stuff all the time!

    So Lara is pretty, and not overly so, but I don't know if I can suspend my disbelief depending on just how crazy they take her scaling rock faces or beating up people twice her size. I guess we'll see as the game progresses.

    As soon as her facial animations kick in, Lara has a serious case of the derps. Throw in that her pre-rendered alter-ego looks like it's made of sex toy silicon flesh and we have a strong argument for "no, this videogame character isn't 'too pretty'."

    Then someone brings up her simian crawling movements and we all agree that Lara looks dumb most of the time.

    I'm more concerned with her running and jumping here, there and everywhere with a hole in the side of her stomach than what she looks like.

    C'mon people! Don't make it all gritty and survivalist and then have her survive things a normal human being has no right to survive.

    Sure, there's that, but do you think it's intentional ? I mean if you're crawling in a tunnel in a third person game, you're gonna see a butt. Maybe I'm being a little bit naive on this one, I don't know.

    Her being pretty isn't really part of her character, not in a negative way at least. That's what's more important to me. She's not sexualized or objectified.

    This is a topic that shouldn't exist at all as far as I'm concerned but you know. I guess I just see people as individuals and not based off of dumb shit like the quality of appearance and their gender and etc etc etc. Gotta love the internet.
