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.

Yeah, saying that Uncharted is just ripping off Tomb Raider is like saying Warhammer rips off Warcraft.

I've never liked the Tomb Raider games before, but I'm really excited about this reboot.

But I have to say, calling this game Tomb Raider just seems completely unnecessary. I mean, I know they're doing it because it's such a well known brand, but it just seems so stupid. After all, isn't the whole reason for this reboot that no one likes Tomb Raider anymore?

God damn, watched this a few times and gotta say, if the actual game matches the atmosphere of this trailer, Crystal D could have something truly special.

This was pretty exiting, once I turned of the audio. Stupid bullshit nonsense trailer writing.

Look so much better than any of the Uncharted games.
Tell, did you deduce all of that from a 3 minute pre-rendered CG cinematic?

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.

CG looks great, at least.

Young, pretty girl, barely clad, getting hurt and abused in every which way. It does seem a bit sadistic.
It's more a tradition of the genre, even the very first games in that genre, back when it was 2D, where like that, see Prince of Persia or Another World. You get chopped in half by traps, pierced by stakes, etc. The standard way to die in Another World is by a laser shoot that blows the flesh of your bones.

Not a fan of the voice at all... OR the bullshit monologue.
 
Also, am I the only one who finds it hilarious to watch her tits get smaller and smaller with each game? They're working so hard to make the original fans forget that they bought TR1 to look at the largest triangular tits out there...

It feels odd to be excited about a Tomb Raider game for once. I just hope that her voice sounds better when the game is released.

@Killjoi: Why the hell are people even comparing Tomb Raider to Uncharted?Jaja TR came out first and the new one isn't nowhere near what Uncharted is.Next thing you are going to tell me is it reminds you of Borderlands?Seriously though this is a more realistic story with a very gritty undertone and setting.And the protagonist is a unexperienced adventurer.
Her personality is nothing like Drakes.Especially seeing how Drake was always like an Indiana Jones clone, his smirky personality, his wise cracks, his hunger for exploration and riches, and his adventures and the settings were all very hollywoodish.

I... am done with British accents, especially those that seem to stumble in an out.

Will anyone agree with me that going between her in the video and the picture of Nova just below, oddly similar?

Is the voice actress faking the accent?

Other than that, this is an exceptionally well-produced trailer. Love the music as well.

I'm really digging it except for the accent sounds a little forced to me.

Stop with the 'this is an Uncharted clone, so I got beef' talk, I'd love it to be an uncharted clone. We get bombarded by all the COD clones, and some of them have gone on to do a much better jobs. I want to see more cool adventure games and this going on my 'ones to watch' list along side Uncharted 3. 
 
Great trailer, but I'm not going to duped by a great trailer...again.

I liked that trailer, but I just can't put aside the fact it's still Tomb Raider.

Prove me wrong Lara, I dare you.

The Crystal Dynamics games have actually been pretty solid. With this game they're giving the game a new dynamic, introducing survival game play and an open world. Hopefully the changes pay off and the game works out. Looks like it has a ton of potential.

For people who like Uncharted (including me) this looks great. We can't have a new Uncharted game every year so why not some Tomb Raider? It is like saying RPG fans can only play ONE series.

BTW the downloadable Lara Croft game was really fun co-op so whatever people.

I was hoping for some gameplay footage in the trailer, but I guess the game is still too much in the future to show that sort of thing yet. Mostly I want to know if the core gameplay is the same with just the change in tone. The last two Tomb Raider games weren't so bad, but it was clear a reboot needed to be done. I'm liking the notes they're hitting with this, but ... what are they changing about the game itself? We still don't know. I'm interested, but I need to know more before I'm willing to get excited for this.
