^it's Lara not Laura

Lara has certainly been paler- and felt skinnier imo- since CD took control. I think they wanted her to look more traditionally British, maybe? Which goes with the straight ponytail too. But it makes me a little uncomfortable now idk. She's just shifted from one standard of beauty to another. And you don't have to be super white (or white at all) to be British 😕

With that said, reboot Lara certainly looks like a real person which I appreciate a lot. I do not want them to change her ribcage or waist. If she were real she would be seen as a very slim, very attractive woman.

As for her vest in Shadow, I think it's quite padded because she's supposed to be wearing two layers.

He, Samz and Legends call her Laura on purpose

I'd kind of forgotten but Rise Lara is stunning, and you can see the difference in her frame. Also her posture looks really good in this picture. So I'm not sure what happened, is it a different person, did she have surgery, did she go on a bulk? What's going on?

THIS, thank you ! Not that hard to figure out...

Two layered vest in a humid tropical jungle. Ughh! I sweat just thinking about it.

I can wear two t shirts and ribcage doesn't alter that much :vlol:

Thanks for pointing this out, I now can't unsee how much a stupid design choice this is now. Also I've just realised that the new top has that horrible rib pattern that Anniversary did, is this an intentional nod or just another horrible design choice?

I know I was saying how horrible all of this constructive criticism is, but I can't help it, this isn't being negative or 'toxic' this is simply pointing out observable flaws in the game.

But you can see that it is the outfit + the angle that pic is from. Frontal + back pics don't show her as wide. Also, don't forget toned abs can make women look slightly less curvy as well

YAY! I've been waiting for there review (haven't seen it yet)

If the vest was padded her boobs wouldn't look so defined and "hugged" by the shirt tho...

@leomage I agree, as I've said I think classic Lara had a vague racial ambiguity about her that left her ancestry up to interpretation. Being half Maltese I saw a lot of my Mediterranean side's features in her and thought she looked Mediterranean or even Latina (which is also why I think they built her TR1 game models before they changed her from being Laura Cruz, and then just kept the model as it was).

I do wish she still looked like that for the sake of consistency.
