A couple of weeks ago I made a thread called "Crystal vs. Core." Today, I feel that that post was unfair, considering the limited capabilites of the original game systems. So, I've decided to make another survey, maybe still a little unfair (oh well), for AOD and Legend only. Please enter your opinions in the place of mine! :D

QUESTIONS:
--Better Controls: Legend
--Better Storyline: Tied For Me
--Better Old School Feel: Angel of Darkness
--Better Graphics/Detail: Legend
--Better Characters: Angel of Darkness
--Better Creators: Tied For Me
--Better Outfits: Legend
--Better Enemy AI: Tied For Me (Neither Were Great)
--Better Lara Render: Legend
--Better Locations: Angel of Darkness (More Open)
--Better Weapons: Legend (Dual Pistols, Baby)
--Better Cutscenes: Angel of Darkness
--Better Inventory System: Legend
--Better Ending: Tied For Me

POINT TOTALS:
--Legend: 6
--Angel of Darkness: 4
--Ties: 4

QUESTIONS:
--Better Controls: Legend
--Better Storyline: AoD (One of the most interesting storylines in any of the games I've played; nowhere near Deus Ex or Thief 3 though)
--Better Old School Feel: AoD
--Better Graphics/Detail: AoD (technically speaking, Legend beat AoD, but AoD's graphics added much more to the atmosphere and general feeling to me, therefore they surpassed Legend's)
--Better Characters: AoD (Eckhardt, wooooo!)
--Better Creators: AoD
--Better Outfits: Legend (only because of the Goth outfit... hehehe)
--Better Enemy AI: Legend
--Better Lara Render: AoD (Legend Lara is ugly :p)
--Better Locations: AoD (Dark and immersive, as opposed to bright, cheery and boring)
--Better Weapons: AoD (stun gun FTW)
--Better Cutscenes: AoD (More dramatic and impressive)
--Better Inventory System: AoD (Legend's inventory kept confusing me, even right to the end... I'd accidentally use a medkit when I wanted light, etc.)
--Better Ending: They both sucked. :p

--Legend: 3

--Better Controls: Legend- smoother and had no 'grip bar'. But I didn't have too many problems with the AOD controls over all.
--Better Storyline: AOD- deeper and less cliche. I cared about what was going to happen next. Legend's story was ok, but far to 'Hollywood' for my tastes.
--Better Old School Feel: Tie- both were pretty new and different compared to TRs1-5.
--Better Graphics/Detail: Oooooo. Tie. Legend has the most up to date graphics with less buggy errors or noticibly unfinished areas. But most of Legend's beauty is down to 'painted backdrops' that Lara could never explore. It's pretty but shallow.
--Better Characters: AOD (yes- even including Kurtis!) Zip, Alister, Rutland and Amanda can go and die a painful death as far as I'm concerned. I can't stand them.
--Better Creators: Core were confused and over worked by the time they got to AOD resulting in an unfinished and buggy game, and CD spent too long focusing on the sparkley bits of the game resulting in a pretty but mediocre creation. So tie.
--Better Outfits: AOD. Legend's wardrobe choices are mostly just repeats of the same thing but in a different colour or useless pieces (like the suits). If they were going to include an unlockable wardrobe they should have put a little imagination into it.
--Better Enemy AI: Legend- the mercs were boring, but they could throw your grenades back at you...
--Better Lara Render: Tie. Quality of graphics goes to Legend, but AOD had the right balance of tough as nails attitude and beauty.
--Better Locations: AOD. Legend had variety, but AOD had depth and originality.
--Better Weapons: Tie. Legend had duel pistols (yay!) but AOD had a greater range of weapons including 2 non-lethal guns.
--Better Cutscenes: AOD. They weren't perfect and sometimes they were down right wierd (the Lourve anyone?? :whi: ) but atleast there was no headset or distressingly lame dialogue involved.
--Better Inventory System: AOD. Not my favorite of the series but I prefered having an inventory screen.
--Better Ending: AOD. By the end I actually wanted to find out the rest of the story. With Legend I couldn't care less.

--Legend: 2

--Better Locations: Some locations were very nice to see in AOD but if I had to choose I'll choose Legend for the beauty of each location
--Better Weapons: Legend, I think AOD weapons could be better than the final result in the game
--Better Cutscenes: Legend
--Better Inventory System: Legend
--Better Ending: Well, these games are the first episod of a trilogy, what do you want me to choose lol ?! * JK * The end of AOD was a little bit weird IMO, so I'm going to vote for Legend, the ending was very nice.

QUESTIONS:
--Better Controls: Legend
--Better Storyline: AOD
--Better Old School Feel: Tied. Both games had awesome TR moments, but also things completely different from classic TRs. Not that it's a bad thing :)
--Better Graphics/Detail: Legend, but only in next-gen mode
--Better Characters: AOD
--Better Creators: Tied. I can't really say much about either of the CDs.
--Better Outfits: Tied. Legend had a LOT, some great and some that made me go, WTF?! AOD had few, but they were all well done and actually wearable for the situation.
--Better Enemy AI: Tied. What AI?
--Better Lara Render: Legend. Personally I think AOD Lara looks better, but I can't deny that the Legend Lara has more detailed textures and twice the polygons.
--Better Locations: AOD
--Better Weapons: Legend. Both games had lots of weapons I never really used, and Legend wins this one for dual guns alone.
--Better Cutscenes: AOD
--Better Inventory System: AOD. Because Legend didn't really have one.
--Better Ending: AOD. The cutscene of Lara slowly walking away into the shadows was perfect :)

QUESTIONS:
--Better Controls: AOD, just by a little. I hate analog control. Bring back the tank controls! Even Sonic R had them!!
--Better Storyline: I didn't like either that much. They were too complex.
--Better Old School Feel: AoD
--Better Graphics/Detail: Legend
--Better Characters: Legend, they are more developed.
--Better Creators: Uh, I'll treat this as level design, which I give to AoD. (Legend had too many fancy ledges and swingy bars, ugh.)
--Better Outfits: I can't put much thought into this one.
--Better Enemy AI: AoD, they shot in the correct direction. And grenades get kind of annoying when you have forward-only motion (but a nice backflip would help me evade them, hint hint! ;) )
--Better Lara Render: Tough one, but AoD because she wasn't showing off her cleavage.
--Better Locations: Tied, they both have their cool places and their more boring ones.
--Better Weapons: AoD had too much so collecting ammo hardly had a chance of being useful. But Legend had too little and you could only collect for one weapon. I think 6 weapons (simultaneously!) is a good balance like in TR4, although 8 worked out fine too (TR3).
--Better Cutscenes: AoD because there were less of them. (If I wanted to stare at this stuff I would look at snapshots instead of buying the game.)
--Better Inventory System: AoD because I like collecting stuff!
--Better Ending: AoD because it felt more complete.

--Better Lara Render: Crystal's Angel of Darkness Lara:p I haven't really seen many renders of Core's AOD Lara. I hate the render of Legend Lara that's on the front of the box, but I like some of the wallpapers. I guess I'll give this one to Legend.

I would've thought the old school feel and better creators would be AoD every time. Obviously I was wrong.

That baffled me too. Legend is much too different from the classics, making the old school TR feel absent, and surely Core Design is a better group? Hello, they made TR1-6!

Mad Tony
14-03-07, 06:31
That baffled me too. Legend is much too different from the classics, making the old school TR feel absent, and surely Core Design is a better group? Hello, they made TR1-6!Yeah. The better creators part doesn't just apply to AoD, it applies to Tomb Raider 1-6 as well.

TombRaiderLover
14-03-07, 06:35
Yeah. The better creators part doesn't just apply to AoD, it applies to Tomb Raider 1-6 as well.

I think that when it game to the better creators part, people must've thought, "Well, Core got bored with the series and ruined the franchise. Forget TR1-5! AOD is crap, man!Core rot in helllll! Crystal Dynamics rocks, dudes!"

God knows why I squeezed in 'mans' and 'dudes,' but I think when it comes to AOD hater's opinion of Core Design, it's usually negative just because they created one bad game (though in my opinion, AOD is a very good game, despite its controls.)

I agree. Even those tiny things, like AOD Lara's style of shimmying, and the camera position when she's shimmying . . .they always remind me of the old Tomb Raiders.

Exactly, and also AoD was Core's last game. I don't love it, but it certainly still has some of that TR feel.

I would have put Core as the better creators, but they really botched AOD in terms of it being unfinished and that got the series taken away from them, so I'm disappointed with them. I didn't put Crystal either because Legend didn't live anywhere near up to the standard I was expecting based upon the Legacy of Kain Series. That's why I put down "neither" for that question.

I agree. Even those tiny things, like AOD Lara's style of shimmying, and the camera position when she's shimmying . . .they always remind me of the old Tomb Raiders.

I know. I do appreciate the details in AOD. I just wish Core had been better organized, more insistent upon the resources they needed, and whatever else had to happen for AOD to be a good finished game. That way I would've gotten to know how that story arc ended instead of being left hanging.

That's what I'm saying. People shouldn't judge Core on that one bad game. They made 5 other great games. But each to their own I guess.

The question asked specifically about AOD's creators. As I understand it, the AOD team was far larger than for any of the previous games and as a result they didn't work well together.

I would've thought the old school feel and better creators would be AoD every time. Obviously I was wrong.

Do remember though: Legend had more tombs -- old school, And, Cystal Dynamics are better than Core with detail. It's just peoples different opinions. :)

I haven't completed AoD, but I think AoD does actually have more tombs than Legend. Also, it's not just about tombs. Tomb Raider III has hardly any tombs, if any. But it is still regarded as a proper, old school Tomb Raider game. Same goes for Tomb Raider II. :)

When I commented on tombs, I was going by percentage. More in Legend. :) P.S. I voted AOD on both of those topics. I'm just trying to think outside of the box.

Once again, I voted AOD on both of those. As I already stated, I'm just trying to think outside of the box. I try to understand where everybody is coming from.

I try to understand where everybody is coming from.I do understand where you're coming from. I was just stating that Legend may have a higher percentage of tombs (it actually might not, I don't know. Ask an AoD expert on that one) but still has less tombs. :)

Yes, I know you did. I wasn't talking about you.

TBH since AOD was not finished and Legend was taken away some of the things that couldv'e made it better... you can't compare them. You can't compare New TR producers to the ones who made TR, therefore making Lara !

I think of it this way. If Legend had AOD storyline with Legend gameplay, perfect TR game !
