I like Tombraider.... I'm hoping I shall like this to. Especially if it's closer to the puzzle based original and not the more action packed sequels

It looks nice, i hope it's good since i liked Legends. The panthers look a bit weird though, maybe it's the modeling. Oh well, looks nice in every other way so it doesn't matter much.

I really loved the very first TR. And this one reminds me of it. Could become cool. Has a nice athmosphere.

Hmm screenshots are not so pretty, but I bet it will look awesome in action.

Wasn't tomb raider anniversary supposed to come out for the 360 some time?

I actually like the new Tomb Raider and even a lot of old-time fans think the series has gotten the revival it needed.

Me too, it was awesome, but then they made 30 different crappy variations that were all pretty much the same game, unfortunately, from the screens, this one doesn't look much different.

You have to buy Legends and then Anniversary (remake of first game) is DLC.

Isn't anyone going to mention how horrible the panthers look? Or something about textures?

KORNdog: you can do that on the 360? I thought only the ps2 and pc versions came on discs.

Synce: did you miss my post or wha? :P

Yeah, seeing everyone in here is a master artist and graphics designer.

Regardless, TR needs a serious shake up. I mean, you can only go to certain locations once or twice before it gets stale. Jungles, temples, ruins etc etc. It needs a new gameplay dynamic to mix things up otherwise Laura will go the way of a certain blue hedgehog.

You know what happened the last time we asked for that? A certain game called "Tomb Raider: Angel of Darkness". Do you know how extremely bad that game was? If you don't, feel free to look it up.

Please, please, please try out Anniversary or Legends. Or at least look at them on a video site like youtube. The developer has changed and so has the game, for the better.

Yup.. both games are very good. I especially enjoyed Anniversary. A good deal better than the original.

Still too much Tomb Raider bashing going on here :P Yes, every game after the orginal was terrible, but Legend and Anniversary were made by new developers and were seriously awesome games, and seeing as this is a direct continuation from Legend, I have high hopes.

And yes. The whole problem with the series is that they attempted to do what you are saying. None of the games after the first were set in tombs/ruins and instead took on an urban environment and focused more on the action. And were all awful.

Legend took it back to where it belongs. Isolated environments and puzzle solving. :)

As opposed to what stac? Fact is you are not stating a fact but rather a mere impertinence. Pardon me, I forgot that most of us have become experts in the field but instead of making a case, ground for discussions, we use it to nit pick!

Looks average in graphics. I don't see where the praise for this thing comes from, those panthers might not be so out of place in a last gen xbox game in terms of polygons and detail.

Dude its called having an Opinion, you know? Freedom of speech and all that...... If he doesn't think it looks good thats his right to say so, this site isn't run from China my friend.

Well dude.. I really thought it was being run from China! Cause since when can't I express my opinion?

im yet to see you express an opinion in regards to this game though, all i've seen you do is attack another persons opinion.

anyway, i agree with stac....the game really doesnt look amazing. currently it really doesnt look much better then legends/anniversary....although im sure the new improved open world gameplay will be top notch.

I'm sorry if my mere opinion could not satisfy you, I would like to state more facts to support my opinion but my English is not so good. My vocabulary is limited and my grammar is not perfect so I tried not to give long comment, if this site is run from China as you thought it is then I could do better in Chinese. However, if commenting on games on Gmersyde even with just a simple opinion is considered as an act of contributing to keep this site running then I will do it since I love Gamersyde so much and I regret that I did not registered to this site months early instead of just trolling around that time.

Thanks Sheps and KORNdog for protecting me.
