One Second From Every TR Level (pre-Reboot)
 


Here's a little project I've been working on for the past several weeks... :D

Give it a watch and let me know your thoughts! I tried to pick either the most dramatic OR most summarizing second from each stage - I'd love to hear of any opportunities you think I might've missed though.

Also... yes, I know it doesn't include the reboot trilogy. However, because Lara's Theme plays for the exact length that I needed for TR1 - Underworld, I left it out. The reboot trilogy's style is also WAY different than the first 9 games, so I felt this cutoff was appropriate. Additionally, I left out Beneath the Ashes and Lara's Shadow - mostly because I couldn't get a good recording of them - and combined some of the other Underworld levels. So yeah, not exactly a perfect "every level", but almost. ;)

Enjoy!

This was cool to watch. The sound effects of the deaths still get me haha

Quebsenuef 16-06-19 04:30

I loved it!

*cries and blows nose obnoxiously into dainty cloth tissue and claps wildly*

Bravo! Bravo!


Seriously , that was really well done. I love the clips you used for the video. It really shows how the games changed. Also how different the LAU universe was compared to the classics. So much more action with boring set pieces.
Classics had such fun levels! Those shined just as much as anything else back in the day!

Grimaldi 16-06-19 08:16

That was amazing. :tmb: Reminds me I really need to play the Gold levels for TR1-3.

marla_biggs 16-06-19 08:23

Great job. Lara crowbarring the chef was my favourite :D

Trenton 16-06-19 08:23

Absolutely loved it man! Nice job putting this together. :tmb:

Chamayoo 16-06-19 08:24

This is very well done ! Love it.
"Little runt" :D

I loved it. How nostalgic.

Someone remake the original 4 games please.

Tombraider95 16-06-19 08:47

Loved it!

Bring back classic Tomb Raider!

biscuits 16-06-19 08:53

Love it!

Ellioft 16-06-19 09:28

I love it too :jmp:

tomee 16-06-19 09:41

Ah, this is so cool. It's bringing back so many memories. I haven't played most of this in years, thanks to being so occupied. Tried to have a TR marathon last summer and had to stop midway, but there's always a next time. :titaklikestocreate:

Thank you for sharing.

_Seth 16-06-19 09:52

That's such a cool idea, nicely done. :)

Nigel Cassidy 16-06-19 10:11

Very good :)

kathrynnn 16-06-19 10:24

I loooove this!:tmb:

Athukraz 16-06-19 11:52

This is amazing it makes me want to cry. I miss these games so much. Would love them to be remastered too

Maverin 16-06-19 12:42

Absolutely loved it!!

This is something I often do in my mind. But I never find the motivation and skill to actually put something like this together. So thank you for this.

JsotoTRSaga 16-06-19 13:01

A nostalgic trip down memory lane, this is the true Tomb Raider!

Very nice Sheepman23

Legends 16-06-19 13:02

I loved it. So cool. I miss those games. I need a remaster of the classics now.

Dennis's Mom 16-06-19 13:05

That was terrific. So many memories, most of them good!

I miss adventure.

sheepman23 16-06-19 13:06

Thank you all so much! I'm just happy that it's triggering nostalgia for a lot of you - it's such a great set of games, isn't it? :D

Oh my gosh, some of those were really fun to capture - like the Aldwych train scene or the boulders in The Hive. :vlol:

Yep, you can definitely feel things changing the later it goes, but LAU still maintains a core gameplay that was present in the earlier ones I think. I was actually surprised by how many cool moments there were in those games - I still prefer the classics by a long shot, but have plenty of fond memories of the later titles too. :)

Well, I'll be the first to say that they're 100% worth playing! Even if you've played a lot of custom TR levels, it's absolutely wonderful to see something using the old TR1-3 engines for the first time. Plus the design of those games is just spectacular. Would recommend. :tmb:

Hehe, that has to be one of my favorites too. :D

:vlol: I wasn't sure if that clip would be in theme for the more solemn attitude of the video, but I think it's too iconic of a line to be left out.

After doing this project, I'm also totally on board with a remaster of some of the other old games! I never used to be, but I don't see why not if they could do it with the level of quality and care put into Crash or Spyro...

I never used to have the motivation to do this either, but have found a lot more free time in the past year to pursue little things like this. It's so cool to do after growing up on these games and always having it "in my mind" as you point out. :)

Skill-wise... it doesn't take much, to be honest. Just a LOT of editing haha.

CroftManiac05 16-06-19 13:07

Wow that was lovely! So many memories...

Gabi 16-06-19 14:08

A trip down memory lane.

My pleasure! :D

I figure I'll try and do some other compliation-type videos in the future... just need to figure out what exactly. This was the first thing on my list though.

tlr online 16-06-19 18:39

Amazing trip down memory lane. :tmb:

tomblover 16-06-19 18:41

Very cool! :D

You should try making a version of this where all the clips from each game flow into each other, I'd be interested in that. :cln:

trfanX34 16-06-19 20:21

Lovely :)

Thanks for compiling everything. So many I had not played. ;)

sheepman23 18-06-19 01:02

Once again... thank you all for the comments! :hug: And any likes you've given my video... every bit helps me gain more viewers. :)

Can you explain what you mean by "flow into each other?" Do you mean mix up the games?

tomekkobialka 18-06-19 08:54

That's one of the most wholesome videos I've watched recently. It does a great job of highlighting how many wonderful moments there are in the TR series. Well done! :D

Like this video :)



All the clips are connected in a way that her movements flow perfectly into the next one

I imagine it's very lengthy and time-consuming to do though, and tbf she only has so many animations and moves to work with for a longer video with every level.

Girafarig32 18-06-19 20:51

Very cool! It was nice seeing all those levels again. And not to be "that guy", but technically you are missing the Times Exclusive level :p (again, ignore me being a butt. This was flawless)

"Wholesome" is a great compliment - thanks tomekkobialka!

That's an amazing video, never seen it before. :eek: Damn, as cool as that would be, that would be crazy tough to do with one second for each... interesting thought for sure though. :D

Oh no worries, I actually remembered the day after and was kind of bummed I forgot lol. :p

Amazing video, very nostalgic and you showed how diverse TR games have been. I love it.

Thanks! The goal was definitely to try and get a little bit of everything - exploration bliss, combat, big moments, funny deaths, and memorable cutscenes. :D
