[QUOTE=Lukass;5953448]^ Well, I think we haven't seen all renders yet, so....I wouldn't mind this. I like it. It's simple and her face will attract people.

I agree it would attract people, but it just reminds me too much of the TRL cover. I mean, we already had a cover with Lara's face, so why not something different and new that would also stand out? And no, nothing to do with her boobs. >_>

Lukass 03-02-12 17:51

And as it may sound stupid, I wouldn't mind if Lara wasn't on the cover at all. What about just this? I just want something simple. I hate the covers that looks like circus poster.

That would be unique, but I can't imagine it ever actually happening, tbh. :o

LOL, that could be anything. The game has, at the very least, got to have the title on the cover. Even having Lara on the cover isn't enough any more, she's not famous like she once was, plus she looks totally different now.

I really don't think he meant [B]just[/B] the picture. Of course the title would be on it.

Even so, the pick axe is too random. May as well have a picture of the bow & arrow, or anything else that no one outside of TR fan circles is going to have a clue about.

Well, the name TOMB RAIDER would be on it, so whatever pic is used, they will at least know that it's a Tomb Raider game and I guess that's the most important thing, right? But yeah, I agree with you that using an item or a weapon is not very practical. Lara at least has to be on it. :p

[QUOTE=Mikky;5953436]I just hope that the cover art isn't any of these two pictures:

I mean, how boring would it be if they announced the cover art and it was one of those pics on the cover? T_T[/QUOTE]

Lara's look changed a lot since that first image shown on GI cover. 2nd one should be the cover as it is probably the most iconic picture of Lara Croft. :)

I can't disagree with that really. I'm just grateful they've finally dropped the "Lara Croft" pre/suffix. Although I totally expect Crystal to sneak that back in.

They should just use a new one and promote it like crazy and then THAT picture would become "iconic" eventually. I mean, there's possibly over 7/8 months left for the release, so that gives people plenty of time to see and digest new stuff.

Btw, the render used on the TRU box art, was that ever seen before the cover art was revealed or not?

I actually liked the Lara Croft prefix used in Aod/TRL/TRA. :pi: But since they've used it in GoL, I don't think it's likely it will return on a main game.

I doubt they'd put it back when they removed it.

I would be happy to see more new images, specially if they release them soon. I need to change my Facebook profile picture. :p

This may be similar to Legend's cover, but its so much different. I really think it would attract the attention of gamers. And so much different than the Legend cover. She is bloody and bruised, and with those piercing eyes it delivers a huge impact. You can't just look at a case of games and not notice it.

Actually that second image of her on the beach is even more attractive.

klona 03-02-12 19:59

Spong 03-02-12 20:02

^The back cover is okay, but the front looks like a cartoon to me.

klona 03-02-12 20:04

It looks obscure to me. :pi:
Not just that...
It's also.... [COLOR="White"]EPIC[/COLOR]. :mis:

As much as I hate that render and think she's ugly in it, I would like it to be the cover since everyone loves it and thinks it's fierce. :tmb:

klona 03-02-12 20:07

^ No, she looks very weird there. D:
So looks like... Sarah. :mis:

Sarah who? Palin?

Linoshi Croft 03-02-12 20:08

Ugly...? I think she's the opposite of ugly in that render.

I thought it was cleared up that they just changed the names so people wouldn't connect it to the reboot?

Lukass 03-02-12 20:12

^ Hmmm, so cryptids? That means animals which haven't been found yet :p Maybe there are some hidden betchiz on the island :D

klona 03-02-12 20:13

Maybe that ugly render was meant to be Sarah. :p

larafan25 03-02-12 20:16

[QUOTE=Siliconera]This early draft mentions the route Lara, ahem "Sarah", took. She used an [B]18th century map of the Northern Sea Route and a modern map of Japan’s ocean currents[/B]. Lara circled an area east of Okinawa where the Kuroshio current changes.[/QUOTE]

This to me, among other things, implies some sort of difference in space and time...

I've always thought something seemed...off...like...the island existed physically but time was different?

IDK...

tombstone 03-02-12 20:21

i think crystal was only doing that crypids/sarah thing for cover up of tr reboot

Why? You think she looks attractive? I don't think she does, not to say that the render is horrible or anything, but she's definitely not a looker. Not that I think she ever was in the older games either.

tombstone 03-02-12 20:32

she look's very hillbillyesq in that render :x

Love2Raid 03-02-12 20:36

Lara should not be on the cover at all. IMO.

[QUOTE=Love2Raid;5953877]Lara should not be on the cover at all. IMO.[/QUOTE]

:tmb:

Or, at the very least have Lara in the distance during some action. I'd rather not have a pic of Lara's face close up or a full body shot, it's been done so much for TR.

larafan25 03-02-12 20:39

We need something round, and not her head.

Say a journal with a round symbol on it plays a huge role in the story, then the case should be that journal with the round symbol on it.

Or MAYBE..

SUPERFANTASTIC IDEA TIME I'LL BE BACK BYE.

Linoshi Croft 03-02-12 20:45

Lara's necklace? Its a rounded symbol..
