I also want you all to post a move that you want Lara to have in the future or what you wanted Lara to have in the past. As long as its not rude.

I have always wanted Lara to be able to take cover behind objects. That could also account for wall hugging. :)

And no bashing of CORE or CD please.

wow that's a hell of a lot of moves O.o
Must of taken a while to actually write all that out? And actually think of her moves :)


But you forgot one

Lara is capable of... Dying :) One of her best and fun moves within all of the TR games :D

LOL!!!

ah yes.. the necksnap.

BEST.MOVE.EVERRRR

:p

It did take me a while actually lol. I was sitting here jotting down a few notes for school work, and my head started to hurt, so I just went to my magical place of Tomb Raider :D

Thought of this thread and made it :)

I'm upset that you're the only one that took the time to comment :(

ah well. I hope there is more :)

You forgot the two fundamental things that Lara does; murder and theft. She's been consistently good at those since day one and hasn't let up.

Beyond that, what's the point in this thread :confused:

Moves, not doings.

And this thread is to just show people what Lara is capable of.. hence the title..

But, since you want more out of it... I will change the reason.

Murder and theft are two things Lara is very much capable of I think you'll find ;)

But I mean moves that she is capable of, not doings that she is capable of. :)

But can you at least say 1 move that you wish Lara to have or had?

please... :o

Climbing Anything. Anything, I tell you! Anything!!

That is all I want from her. All is probably well in the moves section by then.

And thanks for compiling the list, always wanted to know this info. :)

I wish she could do the Matrix/Sprint jump from AOD again...... That was really cool and it could be a great help during speedruns!

OMG YES!

Before Underworld came out I was reading the new moves list and it said Sprint Jump. I was like :eek: AOD STYLE?!?!?!!

But then when I played Underworld and tried... I could hardly tell the difference between the normal jump and the sprint jump.

That AOD jump was epic. NO! is epic... :cln:

I dont see 'kicking open doors' in the list. Like she did in AOD for the upgrade.

hmm.. okay :)

I will add that :p

I just thought of that as opening doors till, but okay :)

thanks :D

I wish she had the monkey swing back, that was awesome :tmb:

I still wonder why they didn't think of bringing that back. :o

I want a decent swan dive again. The new one was lame :) It's Lara Croft she should be capable of decent swan dives!!!

And the monkey swing was fun and I hope they do bring that back!

Agreed, Lara in Underworld swan dived like a turd. I blame the crappy mo-capping, it ruined everything else too.

Oh yes!

I really want that back too. Its simple yet awesome. :)

Spong

Although I'd want her to be able to do it faster than she could in the original Tomb Raiders, it was a little slow :(

Just looked so unnatual, sort of fits the rest of the game :p

But yeah, Lara is capable of carrying like 10 weapons or something in the classics in her amazing back pack, I mean who do you know who can carry a rocket launch in a small bag like that O_o

She couldnt crawl in Anni

And that's one of the moves scremanie says that Lara lost in Legend/Anni. I think you've misread (unless I've misread).

I miss being able to back-up in the classics, now we just turn around, rawr.

Ah yeah i did misread it i read it as

"Moves she lost in underworld but had in Legend and anniversary" (not exactly like that but you get the idea)

Yeah must have taken a while, nice write up though :tmb:

As for Lara dying, certainly is one of her best moves, especially dying by falling from long heights.

I sort of miss Lara's ability to explode (in TR2/3) admittedly pointless, but interesting to see anyway ;)

lol, thanks :D

and yep, I loved how she could explode like that. I accidentally done it by mistake one day.. I was so scared lol.

:p silly

OMG! YEEESSSS!! I miss that so much :(

Sometimes I miss the grid system :(

That made the game unique and thrilling.

Although I'd want her to be able to do it faster than she could in the original Tomb Raiders, it was a little slow :(
I always liked her slow movements though :o

They're too fast in the new games. It just does not seem real. I know that all of what Lara can do is not real in general, but you know what I mean :p

That isn't a 'move' but something she does. Sremanie already explained that. ;)

How many interactive cutscenes did we go through in Anniversary to kill Larson, the other two henchmen and Natla herself? If you press a button it's a move ;)
