View Full Version : Tomb Raider: Faint (AOD trailer)

28-04-05, 12:05
Hi guys,

I was surfing around the net and came across this trailer of AOD that I had never seen before:


Its called "Tomb Raider: Faint". Its quite a good trailer and makes the whole game seem like a high production movie!

Wow! It looks the same trailer I saw before but there's different music.

28-04-05, 12:15
Wow what a cool video, thanks Undertaker. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif

Could've been spliced better, don't like the way the start just clicks between the original movie's music and LP.

Trailers are better when they're short I think. They give a quick overview of things in the game, with some story thrown in to some good atmospheric music.

Exceptions being the NSA Splinter Cell 3 Videos which are just CLASS.

Poor John. :(
It's nice though.

Just think. "Time won't heal this DAMAGE anymore. Don't TURN YOU BACK TO ME, I WON'T BE IGNORED"
I wonder why they got this song for Tomb Raider AOD trailer. LOL. :D
Oh, it's so cruel... TRAOD game doesn't deserve this. :( http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif

For anyone who hasn't ever heard of Linkin Park, they are one of the most awesome bands ever. If you guys liked this song, I can suggest a few others:

"Breaking The Habit"
"From The Inside"
"Somewhere I Belong"

and of course "Faint".

Does this mean that they wont forget AOD?I hope so...

28-04-05, 19:53
Is it just me or does the gameplay in that trailer look a lot more solid then what we finally got?

Maybe I just didnt use the hand to hand combat that much, but I hardly remember Lara flying through the air like a banshee.

Raven posted: Trailers are better when they're short I think. They give a quick overview of things in the game, with some story thrown in to some good atmospheric music.
I totally agree with Raven, the trailer is way too long and shows far too much. Some of the cut scenes are quite good (which we have all seen before) but I don't think the music creates the right ambience for the game.

It's rather angry music which isn't what TombRaider is all about. :mad:

I hadn't seen the trailer before and obviously appreciate the post but I prefer the trailer where it starts all mysterious and in the shadows with blood on Lara's hands. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/privateeye.gif http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif

Heh, me too.

Spooky how one minute watching AOD trailer never seen before. The next watching the brand new TRL trailer. 2 premiers in 2 days not bad, all thanks to the forums.

Quite a cool trailer, with an amazing song, but not one that fits in my opinion. Still, it was fun to watch http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif

Well I have an idea. There's a few Linkin Park songs that really fit the mood Between TR4 and AOD.

Breaking The Habit - Very dark song, but it relates to the fact that Lara's changed and is confused about who she is..thinking everything with Von Croy could have been her fault.

From The Inside - Slightly angry song, but it directly deals with the fact that she doesn't know who she can trust..cause her mentor as a child didn't catch her when she fell.

One Step Closer - Just a good song to kick some butt too.

My idea is, we can make a music video from TR clips...that'd so rock http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/redface.gif .

I'd strongly urge listening to "Breaking The Habit" though. It's a very touching song...very relatable, but dark and moody as hell.

01-05-05, 18:45
I'm listening to Breaking the Habit right now. I never realised how well it fits with AoD. A video set to the song would rule! :cool:
When I get around to buying the PC version of AoD and getting all of the cutscenes and FMVS I'm going to make my own music video set to Whisper by Evanescence. Not the one on Fallen, the original version from Origin. I just think it sounds rawer and scarier, and would fit very well with AoD's feel. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif

01-05-05, 19:01
Cool trailer!

@fallen-angel - any ideas of the new Evanescene album? I'm dying for them to finish it! can't wait!

01-05-05, 20:51
Fallen-angel, you seem pretty cool. You like the same music as me *laughs*.

02-05-05, 08:20
using the trailer and using the song faint
very creative
kinda like an aod music vid in trailer form
i still remember i did make some aod music vids
i forgot whre it is

04-05-05, 19:14
@MikeJM - Yep, I can't wait for the new album either. If any of the songs fit I will probably use one for a music video. I'm definitely gonna sing one of the new songs at my school talent show again http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif

@Derek -FallenxFromxLight- hehe Thanks, you sound cool too. Great taste in music as well. I never really analysed some of the Linkin Park songs so closely.

You should post your picture in Post Your Picture V.1 in General Chat fallen. I'm anxious to see what you look like http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif .

05-05-05, 16:02
I will eventually. Unfortunately the camera is not my friend http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

05-05-05, 20:43
Love Evanescence. LOVE them! I think Going Under suits AOD very well too.

05-05-05, 21:07
Who the **** sed TR:AOD was the black sheep of family... lol It rules i tell you..

05-05-05, 23:25
Very well captured trailer, but it's mostly parts from the FMV's.

I think the music fits the mood of AoD perfectly. It's exactly what it was about. Which doesn't make me like the game more... But it's well done.

Rix, of course AoD is the black sheep. Although you can think of that in a good way if it fits your taste. It's the darkest of the series, you have to agree on that.

I'm glad Tomb Raider is coming out of that with Legend.

05-05-05, 23:46
Cool trailer. I love Linkin Park and this song "Faint", and I think it went well w/the fanvid. If you liked 'Faint' I'd recommend you listen to 'Figure.09' too, very relatable, or at least it is for me :D . 'One Step Closer' is a great song too, my fav by linkin park.

Linkin park rules!!

06-05-05, 14:10
Wow, I love it. The music fits great too.

06-05-05, 16:02
Hehe...I made a music video with the Angel Of Darkness clips once on my computer, but it was to a Deepest blue song and it kinda circled on Lara and Kurtis. They rock! Oh, plus there were some bits at the start that looked like Lara and Von croy were arguing about an affair or something. The bit where she thinks she's killed him. It was kinda limited as I could only get a few of the fmvs to work on the video maker. Ooh but I liked the end...it was just the end clip really but it went well with the end of the song! XD! I'd put it up if I could but most of it is repeated coz I could only get some of the fmvs. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/whistle.gif http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/jumper.gif Hehe! Kurtis and Lara forever!!! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/jumper.gif http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/hug.gif

My god..you all are just now realizing how cool Linkin Park is?????

*falls over laughing, then hands out copies of the first three cd's.."

Heres a really good one though...listen to the entire Meteora cd while playing a really old version of Final Fantasy..like the first one. Its cool.

CAn someone give a link where they show the trailer with the AOD Lara being helped by VOn Croy?

10-06-05, 13:27
You'll find a selection of AOD trailers and FMV's } HERE (http://www.tombraiderchronicles.com/theatre/tr_angelofdarkness.html) { and } HERE (http://www.tombraiderchronicles.com/theatre/tr_fmv/tr_aodfmv.html) {

10-06-05, 20:13
I think Boyraider is talking about the unseen FMV that was cut out of AOD, where AOD Lara's being helped by von Croy in getting out of the pyramid, like at the end of TLR, but I don't think that FMV is downloadable.
