Exclusive review and demo of Lara Croft's remade adventure


A small preview this month does look good but no news on 360 version yet crystal please put on 360 :D

EDIT:
Just to clarify the demo will appear inside the magazine on the PC Zone Demo Disc this is not when it will be released on the internet or consoles

A (suspected) day before release? Nice. :vlol:

28-04-07, 17:27
If the demo is going to be out in the 25th then when is the actual game going to be released?! I'm really confused. I don't think a 360 version would be good because what about us PC players? Let them just release and Xbox version so you can play it on your Xbox 360 but in current gen...

and ps3

Jack Croft
28-04-07, 17:28
Yes PS3

I must say 24th May is quite near to relase date i personally think demoes should be before the release as a taster right? :p

Sekhraider
28-04-07, 17:30
Cool a date for the demo? Nice. But why would the demo come out a day before the release of the game (if the game comes out May25). That would kind of be pointless. But for the American consumers not really that gives us a week or two before our release. For Europe, it could be cool in some ways. Thanks for the info:D

Grenade
28-04-07, 17:30
Nice, thanks for the info. :tmb:

Let them just release and Xbox version so you can play it on your Xbox 360 but in current gen...
That would be fine with me. :)
A (suspected) day before release? Nice. :vlol:
Well the Xbox 360 demo version of Tomb Raider Legend was released two days before the actual game was released. ;)

Nemo_91
28-04-07, 17:33
Noooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!! (screams like Von Croy in AOD FMV), They are going to realise demo only one day before europenian realise and this is terrible, I want demo few weeks before games realise, it would be perfect to have demo on late april of early may.

I agree. I can't believe it...

Jack Croft
28-04-07, 17:33
Remeber guys ps2 demo maybe nearer time but this is only pc format from a magazine not online there still is hope :jmp:

Remeber guys ps2 demo maybe nearer time but this is only pc format from a magazine not online there still is hope :jmp:

I thought it was confirmed that a demo wouldn't be released on the April/May Issue of the PS2 mag.

If a PS2 demo is gonna be released it's going to be from an international PS2 mag.

DMC
28-04-07, 17:40
Oh come on..........A day before the release....Well I actually don't mind that much when I think about it...I'm probably gonna get the game a week after the release,so....Meh....

Alex Fly
28-04-07, 17:40
Lmao !!! One day before the release of the game !!! :vlol:

Sorry that's nervous ! :p

Jack Croft

its a bit of a shame really may 24th a bit bad

Alex Fly

Yes but unfortunately it's always like that, especially with TR demos... :whi: ^^

Nemo_91
28-04-07, 17:48
I'm not sure, they will release the game on the May 25th...:whi: lol

yesrushdt
28-04-07, 18:00
Yes but unfortunately it's always like that, especially with TR demos... :whi: ^^

Not true. The TRL PC demo was available for download at least 2 weeks before the game was released (and the PS2 TRL demo even earlier then that). The demos for the older games in the series tended to come out closer to a month before the release.

Best advice would be to not jump to conclusions thinking this is the demo release date. Just wait for the official word from Eidos.

Nemo_91
28-04-07, 18:02
If this is the official demo release date, I'm really disappointed...

silver_wolf
28-04-07, 18:03
hmm....would it be possible (and legal,lol) for one of you UKers to upload that demo online??

Szynszyl
28-04-07, 18:03
I hope the demo will be released with some PS2 magazine earlier, like it was with Legend :D

Lol I'm not talking about the release day of the demo, I'm talking about the release day of the demo in the magazines, which isn't the same thing at all. ;)

Last year the demo of Legend was released very late in the magazines.

Eidos will release the demo more than one day before the release date of the game lol ! No need to worry about it, I'm sure we'll have it soon. :)

silver_wolf
28-04-07, 18:17
hmmm...well, its one bonus towards the US if we get the demo on the 24th.

Pfeeew ! Thanks Nemo , I think it's about time for CD to announce the release date for the demo . :hug:

Jack Croft
28-04-07, 18:33
But this isn't official.;) (yet..)

if the magazine have been told that they might be able to put a demo in thier next issue then an annoucement might be soon :jmp:

Jordan_Boi
28-04-07, 18:38
May 24th? That's just stupid. There isn't even any point in playing it if you're gonna get the game on release. The Legend demo took about 3 hours for me to download, who knows how long the Anniversary demo'll take? Most of the day will be taken away by the download, and then a day after, you get the game.

Jack Croft
28-04-07, 18:39
Just to clarify the demo will appear inside the magazine this is not when it will be released on the internet or consoles :D

Nemo_91
28-04-07, 18:39
Keir (from the Eidos forum) said, they will release some news about the demo soon.:) I can't wait!

Jack Croft
28-04-07, 18:40
Good i dont want any confusion and im sure nor does eidos etc. :p

Maybe the demo will be downloadable earlier and it appears on CD in that magazine later.

Same thing last year - for Legend -, but nothin'.

amiro1989
28-04-07, 19:16
BTW that does mean that they will have the demo in their edition but that doesn't mean the demo will come out on May 24th. Internet is an excellent spreading tool, and I'm sure CD will put the demo before PC Zone would have offered his. :)

28-04-07, 19:17

28-04-07, 20:06
I bought a PC gaming magazine last week and in the advert for its next issue which is released on the 10th May it says that Tomb Raider will be one of the demos. It doesn't specifically say Anniversary though and I've seen some magazines are still putting the Legend demo on their discs.

Legends
28-04-07, 20:10
Thanks for posting. There will be a PS2 demo?

We get the demo one day before the whole game itself... :rolleyes:

A demo is not made to distract people who always complain and don't know what to do of their life, a demo is made for those who are not sure if they will like the game or if they don't want to spend money for nothing... So I think that's ok from CD to give a demo before the release, you are not obligated to buy the game the 25 May, and the USA will get it on June 5th so 2 week later ! I think it's perfect like this so be happy because some game don't even have demo !

Sorry for my mistake, I speak French...

belter_21
28-04-07, 21:08
Yep.:)

just that I heard release date was 29th not 25th, so 24th kind of makes sense, maybe..we'll see.

if a demo is supposed to help you decide wether or not to buy a game then releasing it the day before doesnt really give you much time to decide does it?

stoopid mag

29-04-07, 00:24
well, its not like "buy the game on the day its released or dont buy it at all!",now is it?

amiro1989
29-04-07, 00:48
Don't you guys understand that if the magazine comes with the demo on May 24th, CD would have already posted the demo online? It's always like this, when a magazine announces an demo inside, the website always post it before, well in most case. The demo will come out before May 24 th.

not a day before,

its nice so you can have time to save up, or so you can preorder and recive special offers and such,

do you know what..i cant be bothered with this

all i said was that i think that May 24th was too late for a demo,

and then i said that you need...

actually im not even going to bother trying to justify my comment

as i simply cannot be arsed to continue fighting on this forum, thats all that seems to happen around here,

so im off to bed hopefully i'll wake up in a more postive mood

phms2010
29-04-07, 03:44
Illogical? What? Do you even know the meaning of the word?
What is illogical is why you think the day before a game is released is a good idea. I call it poor marketing strategies and a poor sense of time.

laras_true_man
29-04-07, 03:51
well,your comment was rather....illogical...

no it damn well wasn't

illogical would be to assume that i was implying that you can only buy the game on release day

if you used your tiny little brain then you'd bloody well figure out that wasnt what i was implying at all,

god, why is this forum so damn nasty and unfriendly?

for :cen: sake

Wow ,can't believe such drama came out of a demo. Jesus!

Anywho, I think it's sad the demo isn't released for just pre-playing just for the sake of if and for those that plan on buying the game on it's actual release date.

Still, I think I will buy the mag. with the demo so see if it's any different from the final game. Like the Legend demo was.

Sekhraider
29-04-07, 06:49
Wow, drama. Well for the US potential consumers, a demo coming out on May25, is not a bad deal. Now Europe, if the release date is May29th then the 24th is not too bad to play the demo. But if the release date is May25, then having a demo the day before at least gives you time for last minute decisions? As long as I get my game I'm happy. Demo or no demo, all that matters is getting that game.:)

You're wrong. There are more than a few of us who will not buy anything from eidos again, unless we see a demo first. Even that's not foolproof, as legend showed. The demo for that was pretty good but, as it turned out, the first level was one of the high points in the game!

I'm not surprised that we're not seeing a demo significantly in advance of the release. Eidos know that they're just releasing "legend with a lick of paint". The earlier they release a demo, the higher the number of fans that realise they're being conned.

If they really believed that this game was up to the standard that the fans have been led to expect, then we'd have had a demo by now.

The only magazine (in the UK, at least) to get new demos is the Official mag. That's already out this month and the next isn't due until 24th May.

THE DEMO WILL COME OUT BEFORE, AT LEAST A WEEK BEFORE. COME ON DON'T YOU THINK EIDOS WILL GIVE A DEMO ON MAY 24TH THE DAY BEFORE THE GAME COMES OUT, NO. THE DEMO WILL BE ONLINE BEFORE THE MAGAZINE COMES OUT, FOR GOD SAKE.
