I just don't trust Square with most of their games. Let alone Tomb Raider. They don't know how to manage their studios or games.

IDK, SE made sure Shadow wouldn't be less budgeted than its predecessor. IDK how you look at them as the bad guys

They made a separate Lara Croft, so they could create her within their own vision, and left classic Lara Croft untouched in her original form. It's not like they picked on Classic Lara and changed her all around with misinterpretations of her

I'm not making them out as the bad guys. I just think they're grossly incompetent. Their western division has been nothing but greatly mismanaged lately. They had Eidos Montreal cut their new Deus Ex game to produce a quick sequel (making the game appear somewhat unfinished), Just Cause 4 was a huge mess at launch, and let's not forget the exclusivity deal with Rise.

Square's more low budget games have fared a lot better lately.

Well for me they kinda have because she's still called "Lara Croft", and their "vision" was so poorly planned it's been a mess. They should have just made a new character.

Amen to that.

Isn't this more related to the devs instead?

Also, pretty certain after SOTTR, you can bet the next TR game will likely have a way lower budget (but I don't see it being shelved yet), and some sort of soft-reboot, going back to basics, which is saddening. Some of you may enjoy whatever comes next if this becomes true.

And they did make a new character. Reboot Lara is a different character than Classic Lara. The reboot was a clean canvas for them to do what they want, in full, instead of being hindered by the past like they were with LAU.
Classic Lara, as I said, was left untouched, so why are you taking issue with they creating a new version? It's simply because of the name? Because if they changed her name, classic Lara still wouldn't be back in the newest games...

Because their new version has been an unplanned mess. Actually they should have just made this a new IP, instead of trying to appeal to the TR fan base, making something very different, slapping the same name on the cover and calling it their "vision".

They're doing the same with The Avengers now it looks like, although at least Black Widow has her duals.

It still wouldn't bring back Classic TR/Lara.
The franchise was put on their hands, and something had to be done to make it profitable. It worked for them. It worked for me. It didn't for you, and other people. That's life. We don't always get what we want

I have no knowledge on the Avengers, but I did read people saying the games were based on the comics, not the movies - and that the movies went out of the way vs the original comics - though, I have no idea how much of this is true. Regardless, it's too early too judge, imo

Looks a bit clunky, but :)

BUT HOLY **** THE ****ING GYMNASTICS. BLACK WIDOW...

CD better bring it if they are developing the next TR.

I always knew it was possible. I swear some games have acrobatics with manual aim implemented. :p. UNLESS it was auto-aim assist enabled? Idk. can't tell from these lq videos if it's manual aim.

And CD did a nice job on the hair! It looks like mesh hair? But wow, did they bring along a naughty dog guy? :o i'm impressed tbh

Oh, and that vid reminded me once again how much I need Lara to have proper hand-to-hand combat next game, after her training it in the comics, and displaying it in that "Don't try me" scene

It worked because they stripped the first Reboot game back so much it barely resembles TR. So it might as well have been a new IP. That's my point.

Well since the majority of comments have been regarding the absence of Hawkeye, I can say it's not off to a good start.
