Trouble is, if this game gets good reviews, you know exactly what's going to happen...


February 13th, 2009

Eidos Interactive has determined that, due to the critical acclaim of the Tomb Raider 1 remake, it will consider a new product line of remakes from the 1st game to the 5th game in the series. "We're going to try an intuitive approach," the press release agent said to TRC. "Basically, we're combining the classical concept and storyline of Tomb Raider 2 through 5 with the excellent gameplay and graphics of Tomb Raider 7, with a few extra surprises and additions."

Although there is much speculation as to what the "surprises" will be, Eidos has failed to reveal anything about them. However, they have made a few suggestions; "We noticed that the fans seemed to be highly pleased with the new outfit, inventory, and secrets system. We also noted that they enjoyed Zip and Alister's commentary, and also desired the return of one 'Kurtis Trent'. We promise them that they will not be let down in the next release."

i dont see a problem with that. i rather play a legendized remake than another legend. at least theres a shaddow of a tomb raider game in a remake. and by the time we get a tomb raider 3 remake it would be on ps3. (tongue in cheek)

I wonder if this means a February-ish release date?

I hope so. I hope they've timed it so that's there just enough PR to whet the appetite, not months on end of bits here and there like they did with Legend.

Also, I think it'd be really interesting to see an equivalent trailer to the forbidden Core one... I still look at that one occasionally and drool.

The thing that scares me the most - "Every time a new Tomb Raider game has been released, the fans have asked for a remake of the original. We have gone a step further; we have taken the original story and made a completely new version for Tomb Raider Anniversary." says Eidos PR specialist Matt Dalgren.

It IS a remake but maybe a shortened version of TR1, never the less I hope it's good.

This is really exciting thinking about when its gonna be out. Well, Im not looking at any screens, it will ruin it like I did Legend. (LOL ruin a remake? Ive already played the original XD) So I guess as soon as the big info starts pumpin out, Im straying away from this section.

what more proof do i need? theres the same legend textures, the same legend engine, a grappling hook and no atmosphere. it is a slippery slope my friend... oh wait. this is the legend engine we're talking about. there are no slopes. only invisible walls.

Everyone knows that, since the developers are CD; Who made TR:L?; Who made TR?.

If CD aren't going to respect TR roots... And instead look back at TR:L while developing TR:AE, I'm sorry, but expect a "Legend" type product.

hmm i think your over simplifying the matter a bit. its more complicated than it being a good game. it was a fully functional platformer. but as a tomb raider game it lacked some of the qualities that the classic fans know a tomb raider should deliver. it was a good game as a stand alone title. but it isnt the first tomb raider game and it disappointed many old tomb raider fans that fell in love with the classics.

PHEW!!!Thank god you made that up! You almost gave me nightmares!!! :hea: If that happened it would be the end of TR as we know it and the brain dead would take over the game... oh wait, they call them legend fans! :rolleyes: Please, please, please CD, don't legendize the greatest TR of all time! http://www.storagebin.us/smilies/smilies/yell.gif

Thanks for posting tlr, screenshot tells me all l was desperate to find out, yes its a remake, and it seems to be fairly faithful, they have the Lost Valley level at least. l can safely watch the upcoming media releases and not worry about spoiling the game, l do like comparing the new with the old so much :) They seem to have used a slightly altered Legend model, l loved the way Lara moved in Legend, and if l have to, l can survive with autograb. They seem to have fixed the problem with the skin, the skin looks much more realistic than the Legend version. PS2 graphics have never looked so good before, and as to the jumping, Legend Lara could jump far enough when she had to. l notice Lara has a nice set of rock climbing tools now, much better than that magnetic grapple in Legend, hopefully we will get to use these tools in a variety of places to explore, as well as to follow the path set out for us. As to the complaints about the bright white light, well what do you expect to see when coming out of a dark tunnel, we would have to actually get outside before we could tell what the weather was going to be like, and l find nothing wrong with blue skies anyway

Cliffy, she entered it from a cave!!!! So yes it was sort of enclosed

Tomb of Legends
28-10-06, 03:51
Your not understanding, right before the valley there is a cliff you have to climb down. With a skeleton with a medi pack and then you hop down a few ledges and your on the valley floor.

TRBeth
28-10-06, 03:54
Cave, then climbable cliffs and even a corridor type entrance in the cave area in the original "Caves" level, so I hope it is a simulation of the original closed-in feel, and not a Legendish continuation of endless lack-luster hallways.

Wow. A single picture has set off a flurry of whining.
It has the Legend engine.
What were you expecting? The Ratchet and Clank Engine?
Lara's boots are a "different" color than the ones in TR 1.
Brown is brown is brown to me.
Lara now has a conventional grappling hook.
Indeed, something all tomb raiders should have readily equipped.
The tunnel is too tunnely.
Could it be that this is the mouth of the tunnel?
If there's pole swinging in this I'll (insert some lugubrious comment here).
Why? I would consider 25 poles to swing in each level a bit disconcerting, but the odd pole to swing here and there can't be too bad.
Crystal Dynamics is the spawn of Satan, and Core should throw holy water on them.
So they make a game that's not to everyone's taste, and now they and Eidos are money mongering whores?
The gameplay is going to be dumbed down, there's going to be shiny things, and Lara won't be able to long jump.

I'm going to commit suicide/ burn down Eido$/ massacre the crystal Dynamics staff if the autograb returns.
Why? Does an electric shock run through your body every time Lara grabs a ledge without you pressing the action button?

Wow. A single picture has set off a flurry of whining.
It has the Legend engine.
What were you expecting? The Ratchet and Clank Engine?
Lara's boots are a "different" color than the ones in TR 1.
Brown is brown is brown to me.
Lara now has a conventional grappling hook.
Indeed, something all tomb raiders should have readily equipped.
The tunnel is too tunnely.
Could it be that this is the mouth of the tunnel?
If there's ploe swinging in this I'll (insert some lugubrious comment here).
Why? I would cinsider 25 poles to swing in each level a bit disconcerting, but the odd pole to swing here and there can't be too bad.
Crystal Dynamics is the spawn of Satan, and Core should throw holy water on them.
So they make a game that's not to everyone's taste, and now they and Eidos are money mongering whores?
The gameplay is going to be dumbed down, there's going to be shiny things, and Lara won't be able to long jump.

Boots looked just fine to me, they appear to be the same as the Legend ones so maybe Lara just likes them, not expecting to see red shoelaces though

And as to the grapple, you know, how dare they put a grapple in, why its unheard of, cannot have a grapple in Tomb Raider 1. For those people this shot is from the opening FMV from Tomb Raider 1, yes the one released in 1996, and behold, Lara had a grapple, now fancy not noticing that. Of course the new one will be a slightly updated and more compact one, more practical to carry around on the back of a belt rather than in a bottomless backpack

OMG!!! i'm guessing that in the new pic that all the "light" is fog (or mist from the waterfalls)........because the lost valley was in a cave, not outside. btw should we worry about spoiling the game? because if it is exaclty following the tr1 storyline then we already know what will be going on.....and CD better not mess up things this time. LOL!!!

I didn't expect, that one screenie would make so much fuss. Personally, I'm glad, that CDs are bringing new stuff into "TR1" and not just redecorating it. Doing the same thing over and over again without implementing anything new brought about the end of Core.

Lost Valley was always outside, plants do not grow without light, you just had to use your imagination in the original, since they were unable to do outside daytime sky effects. It is so bright because she is coming out of the darkness of the cave into the sunlight, although would not suprise me if there is some fog

She has a braid, unfortunately something seems to have eaten a bit of the end there, the end has a gap in the texture, but then Legends braid did all sorts of strange things as well, hopefully at least this one will not go straight through Lara. The braid seems to be flying out behind Lara in the screen shot, although it looks more like she is walking than running, maybe there is a bit of wind or maybe the braid is a lot shorter than we are used to seeing?

28-10-06, 07:37
The Lost Valley could have never been inside. It seems quite unconceivable to me. All you people know the obvious reason why the sky is black: THE POOR GRAPHICS of that time. If you review levels of TR1, you see that there was either no sky or a black sky. In TR1 gold the stars were added to make it more realistic. But The Lost Valley could be neither indoors nor night time. It is outdoors because of trees, plants, waterfalls, etc., and day time because of light. How could it be so bright everywhere if it was underground?

Stig911
28-10-06, 07:37
Have you ever been in a cave. I did on a scool activity week. You feel the wind of your face miles before the enterance.
Maybe A dinosaur was hungry but Lara is too lean do he took a chance with the hair.
I watched a thing about making games and they leave details like hair, extra movement, eyes blinking and stuff till near the end.

OMG I remember Lara in Legend her hair chopping her headoff whenever you move when you crouch down.

Still, for such an early screenshot it looks to be amaizing. Not yet perfect, miles from crap!

Hopefully this will make up for what we lost in Legend. Maybe they were more focused on this whilst makeing Legend!

The Tomb Raider emerged from the gloom of the tunnel, through the swirling mist, into the most beautiful valley on Earth. The mist parted to reveal a spectacular waterfall cascading down a sheer cliff, into a vast pool of crystal clear water. The sound of the waterfall was deafening, but in a strange way calming.

A message from Eidos:

As most of you may already know, Tomb Raider: Anniversary has drawn its inspiration from the original adventure that started it all. It is a celebration of Lara Croft and the history of the Tomb Raider franchise.

Over the years, the fans of the Tomb Raider franchise have been constantly asking for a new version of the original Tomb Raider. We have answered the call with Tomb Raider: Anniversary. This game is for the fans.

Nice picture, but I'm going to reserve judgement at the moment because it doesn't really tell me anything important.
I mean, it doesn't tell you what game dynamics are being used...classic or Legend. If there are no objects/keys then that will probably mean no gold bars in Palace Midas, which means nothing to find = no exploration.

Raydai
28-10-06, 10:08
Why is it so bright? You are below the surface. Lost Valley was dark, spooky and overall it look beautifull with the waterfalls and what is beautifull is deadly and that was true when you find out there are dinosaurs out there. But I don't make a judgement to soon but I am so worried again that Crystal Dynamics will make a crap action/adventure again of such a great game if it still contains the weak points of Legend.

I agree. I imagine it can be used the same as in the opening FMV of TR1- Lara swinging it up and using it to climb vertically up the door/other flat surface. As long as they don't over use it I'll be pleased to see the rope as an edition to gameplay. :)

As for the hole in her braid- who cares? When ever we get a new game the first footage they show us usually has a little glitch that they clean up for the final product. I also think her hair looks fine. I'd like the braid to be longer but it's no big deal.

As for the slight 'blockiness' of the graphics in the tunnel- I don't mind that either. It's what they do with the level design and layout that matters most to me.

Rivendell
28-10-06, 10:28
I like her hair, hole or no hole. It's not the long briad, but it's not quite the bun. It's a fair compromise.

It also probably means that once again we won't have FMV's.

Hmmm.

Happy to see that this is possibly the Lost Valley... but I have this teeny little nagging voice at the back of my head that keeps saying 'even with the poor quality of the footage, the Core version looked far more atmospheric..."

Still, not going to pass judgement. I just hope they sort out that white sky... one of the greatest things about TR1 was the sense claustrophobia - of being underground and in hidden places.

Elysia, the Lost Valley was supposed to be outdoors in TR1 but because there wasn't enough time for Core to render the sky it got left all black. It's the same thing with the collosseum too :)

I don't know if anyone remembers the Core Anniversary trailer like I do but at the cog puzzle in the Lost Valley the mechanism for controlling the water flow was a set of HUGE cogs churning away and a waterfall flowing behind it - I wonder if Crystal will keep some of these design choices or re-do it their own way because it looked pretty impressive to me :D

I'm more curious to know how the Croft Mansion will look in the re-make, will they stick to the originals design complete with lush gardens and farting Winston or have Legends uber modern Manor, complete with an utterly useless Winston?? :confused:

Either way TR:Anniversary is definetly one to watch! :jmp:

28-10-06, 11:33
Thinking about it Reggie - it might be as far through as Core's was. Back then, for Core release was 6 months away, and now for CD release is around 6 months away.

It's just that we saw a full moving trailer of Core's and just one picture of Crystals!

The hole in Lara's braid is part of the evidence and if it was 80% complete then we'd see a little more than one screenshot? I guess that isn't a very strong argument but that was my initial thought. I don't mean to give out anything negative, I'm actually excited about seeing what this brings :D

The hole in Lara's braid is part of the evidence and if it was 80% complete then we'd see a little more than one screenshot? I guess that isn't a very strong argument but that was my initial thought. I don't mean to give out anything negative, I'm actually excited about seeing what this brings :DYes, good points. You may be right. :)

Although walking towards a dark area in past games is sometimes a sign of graphical incapability. Personally i have always hated seeing the big dark areas which become as light as day when you get close to them.

Yes illuminati30, I say the same ;)

Perhaps we should try to be less pessimistic. There is an obvious grabbling hook at Lara's side, and the original braid has been modified a tad into a French style braid. I really don't have a problem with either.

For consistency stake, I can't imagine that CD is not going to use Legend's Lara; granted, perhaps a younger Legend Lara. So what? I thought CD's rendition of Lara was pretty good. Look at the original Lara pictures straight from the game (Not the cover art). To me, Legend Lara is a pretty good rendition to the original concept.

More important is keeping to the original storyline and the original level concepts. CD needs to recreate Tomb Raider, not reinvent. Basically, they need to copy the original adding in their updated graphics, hopefully, without so many hallway-style environments.

Lets just see what develops.

Lara uses a grappling hook in the opening FMV in TR1 so maybe her mountain climb to the tomb entrance will be playable in the TRAE? The motorbike FMVs in TR1 may become playable sections too. I don't mind if there are a few tweaks & changes to gameplay. I doubt the control system will be that different to TR Legend so some changes would be needed for Lara's new moves. If the game captures the TR1 atmosphere, puzzles & difficulty level, I will not mind changes & tweaks.:)

Totally Agree! They should bring back one of the Classic Crofts! :D

Edit: Just a little observation, how long do u think Lara's hair will be? Long like the classics? or Shorter like Legend. Also , I hope she has the front like in AoD or in TR4, it was too messy in Legend.

Well I'm not going to read through all 47 pages [sorry:ton:) but I think it's not a very revealing screenshot, so it's hard to judge... and anyway I know not to judge a game by screenshots, as this is what I did with Legend! Legend looked really good when I saw the graphics and environments, but when I played through them for me it wasn't LIKE tr, so I am definately going to wait to hear mixed views and opinions from fans before I even consider buying.

Of course a screenshot appears when my internet decides to go out on me.

OMG Its beautiful! I just can't wait!

I skimmed through a few posts. It seems as though some (particular Legend/Crystal D haters) people are being picky ALREADY with this game, and complaining about the sky....

I always thought the valley was outside, but because of limited graphics and technology, it felt like it was inside. The sky was just black nothing.

I hope it works on my pc. I would just have a panic attack if it doesn't I hope they come out and say early what you will need to play this on your pc so I can upgrade it.

Since hearing CD are doing AE (or TR:A as it now is) I've thought they would turn that part into a playable level. As long as they make the track varied, challenging (remember the part which Lara actually *wallrides* in the canyon?) then I won't mind too much.

I can also imagine the cutscene with Natla turning into an interactive scene - press X when she's falling to grab on.

If this Lara model ends up with Legend's face (as it has already inherited her out-of-realistic-proportion legs) then, yeah, this isn't a remake, at least not in the innocent sense of the word. It's a case of 'liekomg! we stole Tomb Raider and changed it and disrespected it, so that it is no longer Tomb Raider... let's now do the same with the past games! yay!11111'

Eidos affirmed this game though also planned to please other players,is mainly aimed to the fans,so I believe it will be quite a faithfull remake.

But a remake only is worthy if it adds something new,but perhaps,that new elements might be, as some members suggested, interactive cutscenes,etc.

The new "old" version of the grappling hook showed us CD is making small and sensible changes and,if that's Lost Valley,we might expect all the other settings will be maintained and perhaps enhanced.

But I think more accurate comments can only be made after we see more screenshots and read a bit more info.

Thanks,LBP :)!I miss your previous avatar,but this one is interesting,too :D!

I believe ( or,perhaps,I wish :D) the plot will be the same.

I've never played TR1,but I read all Chronicles had about it,and,quite sincerly, I do care more if places like St.Francis's Folly or Coliseum will be creatively "re-created",but still faithfully,following the original,rather than if Lost Valley was undergound or not. Actually,once plants need sun,I doubt it was underground.

But I ask myself how Cd feels about this,once,at a certain level,this game represents the recognition of Core's talent. More than Legend,I think the anniversary edition is more challenging: how left your mark in something superbly made? How to change what's considered perfect? And how changing it,but keeping it the same?

I'm eager for more info!!:jmp:

True. I really don't envy the task CD have taken on, though I'm glad they have decided to do the remake. People will be picking through TR:AE with a fine toothed comb, especially after some of the complaints levelled at Legend. They have an even harder job here than with Legend. Legend was a TR but still a game in its own right, but the AE is a remake so comes with very strict expectations.
I hope they strike the right balance between new and old. I feel very calm and optimistic about it all.
But if CD mess this up then God help them, they will feel my wrath! :mad: :D
