Currently reading through the article (is it possible to release the full 20 pages?) and stumbled across more Core Design humour:

"Melissa Croft, Lara’s younger, sexier, but slightly dodgy cousin"

Sexier!? Because that's a really important part of her description.

Of course it is.

"Melissa Croft, Lara's younger, less cool and not as exciting, but slightly dodgy cousin" doesn't have the same ring to it.

Still wish they got to finish/release the CORE version.

True or not. It juast makes me pine for the game even more...

It woudlve been a welcome fan-service to accompany the 20th anniversary celebrations

I don't like two things:
1) The automatic platforming they described, I prefeer having fixed jump distances like AoD.
2) "Forgibing traps". No. Just NO. That's Rise and I don't want it.

IMO a good update would be:

- Analog controls with every move frome AoD (plus deleted ones) and TRC (swingpoles, ropes, tight ropes...).
- Manual aiming (only good thing the reboot gave to the franchise) with an special move to aim 2 enemies at the same time (maybe some headshot special move filling a bar or anything??), with acrobatics like RE6 / Vanquish (but better).
- Fixed jump distances with free climbing (not only squares but every ledge) like AoD.

^ Agree with you! Plus... I don't really believe it when they say they're going to reuse the TR1 map and add details with Maya... Cause don't tell me this:



is the same as this:



But everything else look so good

Well, I think I can see the basic idea there, but it might be (well, certainly should be) one of those "primary areas" they mention in the article they were going to improve massively.

Of course it's not the same, because the upper pic shows the left side of the entrance while the lower one shows the right side.

It looks very similar and what they mean is that the overall level layout will remain the same but the graphics and details will be updated. It doesn't really matter if the Colosseum is angular or round as long as the dimensions and how the rooms connect to each other remain the same.

2. More detailed geometry. The original geometry will be exported to Maya and updated to add detail.
Well... doesn't look like

To me it looks like exactly that, just after updating the environment. If they would make an 1:1 remake, then there would be no reason to buy it. Also the leaked videos show new moves like climbing on poples and vaulting up on ledges like in Free Running or the reboot games. I'm pretty sure that the levels have to be tweaked in order to support these additions.

I think you don't get what I mean ^^

The said that they kept the original level editor map to add more details, to me it looks like the totally rebuilt it but indeed, it looks goregous!
