So, I played through Baba Yaga again this morning and it's still as disappointing as I remember. The Serafima story just isn't compelling and the bulk of the gameplay is picking flowers and that eyesore of a boss fight (which glitched out, making her twitch in her cauldron like it was the dance floor).

Particularly the hallucinations. I had a thought that the pollen could have triggered vivid memories of Yamatai. The witch's story is about survival, doing what you must but turning into a monster in the process. Why not parallel that with Lara? Imagine she enters the cave, gets exposed to the pollen and the witch steals her weapons. You're left to fumble through an abstract, ominous landscape until you reach the woods. Men in skull masks begin to chase you, the woods burning in flames around you, before Lara eventually gets cornered. The witch makes her relive her first kill and Richard never gets brought up. More importantly, Lara has to face some serious truths about herself - she's changed and might have genuine darkness inside her. Maybe even a fight with a doppelgänger hallucination (her Yamatai self emerging from the blood pool?).

Needless to say I hated the hallucinating aspect too. Really takes the awe and mystery out of it for me. Nobody plays Tomb Raider for drug trip flowers, I want supernatural tomfoolery.

I quite liked the hallucinations, however, I would like Tomb Raider to become a game with a lot more supernatural elements. I feel the reboots are too realistic with its enemy types. The fantasy elements are poorly executed for my tastes. I would prefer a more fleshed out supernatural story and gameplay. I suppose CD are playing it safe, and trying not to be cheesy.

This looks like a mixture of the scavenger's den , Syria's scorpions cave and that passage in the wicked vale , and I like it Nothing beats Brian's art for me , though I'm really going to miss him .

I love Brenoch’s work, him and Brian are the best! Although Brian is gone I believe Brenoch could takeover for Brian

WHEW, yas!

haha, I love Camilla's delivery on that first line. See, given good lines and proper direction, she could be SO much more as Lara.

Does this actually happen in-game? Saw lots of gameplays (I only have the 360 version) but never actually saw this happen.

No, it doesn˙t. I think they were taken from here http://tombraiders.net/stella/walks/...r-up-guide.png

But they have been somehow modified.
