Images of Tomb Raider: Underworld

Images of Tomb Raider: Underworld

Eidos releases ten stunning images of Tomb Raider: Underworld. After the terrific "Anniversary" and knowing how Crystal Dynamics want to focus on platforming and exploration with less gunfights, Underworld looks more and more like a wet dream for us Tomb Raider fans. I seriously can't wait.

Might be my second TR game to own...maybe.

But it sure as hell looks nice!

Of all the Lara models I have seen, this one a winner, she looks fantastic!

The level of detail is insane! Gorgeous!

Very much looking forward to this. Anniversary was awesome and Legend aint bad either. I'm not in love with the new character design, but it looks great. I hope combat is toned down a little in this one, and they can skip the cheesy vehicle levels too.

Looks insane. Can't wait. Yay for tomb raider!

Better but not quite there yet. Not until Lara looks like a virtual Karima. Still, I like that they're focusing less on the action aspect.

First, it's nice to see that Eidos has discovered the Normal map button, second, it doesn't matter how it looks if Lara handles like she always has, like a garbage truck with all the hydraulics cut and third, if this managed to get a nude patch, you could probably actually beat off to it. ;)

Anniversary and Legend both played very well.

Well, I grant you that, but they still had a crappy camera and too many "leap to your death" problems. Still, I'll try to keep positive.

I didn't know it required comparison.

Looks great

Totally different game mechanics, Drake was more of a shooter than TR, or at least I'm hoping, if they go down that route with the new one I won't be buying it.

looks okay graphically...about what I expect for the series.

Not a fan of the series though...very bland premise

Indeed, Uncharted is basicly a shooter with some platforming elements here and there. Not that that's a bad thing perse, but it's not the way a TR game whould be like.

I hope this just sticks to what it should be, a puzzle-solving action platformer.

Legend completely restored my faith in the Tomb Raider series, which went rapidly down hill after just the first game. Like you guys mentioned, all the sequels focused way too much on the action, instead of what it was always about. The puzzles. :)

Can't wait for this, but it's good to see they're taking their time with it. Rushed development was one of the problems with the series in the past.

Eidos is under great pressure to be profitable. Anything coming out of them or their parent SCi should be treated as crap unless proven otherwise.

These (bull)shots are way too good to be true. They've just thrown all the parallax mapping and realtime shadows they could find on there. There's no way this engine can pull that off without dreadful frames. Rare could easily do this with their 2 year old Kameo engine but not Eidos. God save Deus Ex 3.

Looks pretty good.
I'm with the majority here, I'd like Tomb Raider to go back to basics with more focus of the platforming and puzzles rather than the gun fights. Looking forward to this. Let's hope they don't rush it out.

Lara Croft looks hot as usuall, damn 10 year old franchise and the girl hasnt aged a day.

buying it for PS3.

I think she looks like Victoria Beckham, yeah, I guess it's only me.

Considering that Lara has some kind of comic-style it is not that far off:

IMO these screenshots met photoshop.

Sorry to hear that.

I will assume that this is the true sequel to Tomb Raider Legend.

I hope that Troells will be bad to compose the score.

    Megido @Sdarts: Don't hate on pixel art you douche :) (22 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @Sdarts: Industry Icon is not usually for one game, but your contribution to the gaming industry I feel. There are several developers that I feel deserved it before Kojima I should have said. (23 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And heck one of my main complaints about the Monkey Island 1 remake is that you can't play the talky version with the OG graphics. Pixels don't offend me. (25 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX A GOG version would be.. pretty much ScummVM. And you totally do not need HD assets to enjoy LucasArts games. Played Sam & Max Hit the Road like two months ago. It's still beautiful. (25 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts If only GOG had a version. Either way, an HD remaster made just to work with new systems and some HD assets is all I need. (28 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Megido: Lost the CD a long time ago between movings. I have used ScummVM and VirtualBox before, but playing though a window or fullscreen at very low resolutions does more harm than good. (29 minutes ago)
  • Megido
    Megido @Sdarts: If you have the original you can just play it with ScummVM :) (44 minutes ago)
