I didn't say anything about a connection with Lara's parents.I simply gave an example of somesort of subtleness. Nothing else came to mind. trl and tra had other connections aswell, but this one was very preominant( as in it got stuck in my head by how many times I came across it on the forums. ) don't worry. no parent connection.

Crystal D are going to work on anything the producer - Eidos - decrees them. So don't say that "the one Lara is different form the other". If Eidos consider as lucrative to continue AoD, Cr D will. But at this moment I don't think so. They have a whole saga (2,3,4) to remake, which is a lot of money, so why losing it?!?! Though the regret of the fans, they (the fans) definitely are buying the next titles, thanks to the previous success. When the right time comes, there will be an unfold of AoD story, but we must wait long.

Maybe that'd work. I wouldn't really mind Crystal Dynamics making a continuation, but to be honest I doubt they'll make the continuation I'd like to play.

'Cause is a golden opportunity for cashing. If they make a game about the mom first, the next surely will be remakes of the previous original titles, with some little expansions of course. Pitty!!! The TR has such potential of novelty.

Eidos actually gave the go ahead for the AOD sequel to be made by Crystal Dynamics. It was when the team brought on Toby Gard, that Toby recommended that they scrap everything that has went before.

On the subject he famously said:
"She's my creation, I can do anything I want (with Lara)"

Hence why he's disliked by a lot of AOD fans.

I would definitely support an AOD continuation with CD's technical abilities, and I have suggested that some of the old CORE TR creators be recruited to work with CD on future TR games. This doesn't mean a return to CORE but to add to the team viable gaming artists that know what TR is all about, since it seems that CD is struggling with this aspect of the game and seems unable to appease the expectations of veteran TR fans. I also feel that adding some of the old CORE programmers would be a tremendous advertising boost for the game.

AOD was certainly a better story then Legend in every way, and, even though it deviated from the "tombish" aspect of TR, the central character's history and personally was not rapped and altered, as is the case with Legend, continued with TRA.

Toby Guard has not been a good addition to this game, IMO....however, sales speak for itself and the sales have been good for both Legend and TRA.

i would love to see an AOD continuation... if and only if they make it amazing like anniversary and legend. it was too buggy and with people having to play with kurtis..it was a flop. i personally liked the story line of AOD though..people didnt like it ..they thought lara was too dark. well think about it..if your mentor left you to die in a tomb...um what would you be like after you got out. i dunno i would just like to see it..but its VERY doubtful i will. even if they would continue it in iDVD format (were you can play on your tv, and use your remote..theyve done this before with AOD..they made it into iDVD) i would be happy. i just want to see what they had planned.
