Someone clearly didn't play this back in 2006.

I did used to think that the AOD render being ran over by the bike was nothing, but these days I do find myself wondering if there really isn't a bit of symbolism behind it, especially given the mess that was the race of TRA x TRAE behind the scenes.

It might be nothing but it does seem odd when you factor in the dispute for the franchise doesn't it?

It was a joke, people are just really good at misinterpreting pretty obvious signs lol Though I really don't know how people actually thought she hated tombs, she immediately gasps in excitement because she's in a tomb not 10 seconds later. And the fact reboot Lara is definitely the one who is the most passionate about history and archaeology.

I think it's shameful that CD had to actually come out and say it wasn't literal. Like good God people, read the room lol

For me it's super bad. And let's not mention how they used TRAOD Lara there.

I wouldn't be surprised people at that point would be just so fed up of her character/game that a terrible joke, with the subtlety of a sledgehammer to the face, was just something to add to the pile.

Back on topic, honestly I don't mind it, and I swear I never noticed the AoD render, I was always rather hypnotised by all the stuff going on, plus the music was pretty neat.

I liked that cringeworthy opening. It's just that after TR1-6 intro FMVs it felt really lacking in substance and totally useless.

I guess it is very "gratuitous shots of Lara doing cool ****", for no reason. This is rather than how pretty much every cutscene in the classics (few as they were) had relevance to the plot, even the ones that showed events long before Lara was born.

Interesting hearing of the conspiracies around AoD Lara appearing in the trailer too, which I'm surprised existed as early as then. Idk I don't think it's deliberate, but then we do have to wonder damn, why bother including her in the cinematic at all? Was it a respectful homage to classic Lara? Idk

CD simply just loved that pose for some reason



That's probably why they included it.
It looked cool and they didn't put much thought to it.
