We also need new animations; better posture, more confident and graceful-looking movements, perhaps some "show-off" acrobatic moves to return.

In terms of iconography, dual pistols are far and away the most important thing and I'd rate some kind of stylish tiny backpack as being the next most important. Shorts and a braid are more minor.
Yeah I can't see it staying exactly how it is, I do think there'll be a new voice actress and slightly modified look for Lara moving forward.

Although if they change her too much it will feel strange as we've been with reboot Lara for quite a while now. And if they wait 5 years and do a massive reboot again I'm not sure the franchise can take it only 3 games after the last one.

Anyway from my point of view, I know it sounds daft but one of the things that really bugs me about the current Lara is how short she is. I wish they'd make her a few inches taller.

I don't like the round red sunglasses , they look really childish and campy on Lara .

I much prefer the cool AOD dark sunglasses .

I partly agree. I like the classic sunglasses a lot, but the AoD ones fell more in line with Lara’s head shape, as weird as that sounds.

It's not weird, different kind of glasses do suit different faces. I look really good in aviators and in big Hipster-style glasses but I look terrible if I put on small, especially square ones.

I have a love-hate relationship with Lud's Gate. I love the ideas behind it, but in execution it's terrible with the horrible lighting and that underwater bike thing can crash and burn. It clips and stops dead at the slightest brush with a wall, which is a problem when we have dwindling breath and every second is precious.

Her design is just strange to me. They put an infantile little girl's hairstyle on adult Lara's body and thought the two would cancel out somewhere in the middle.

Forgiveable with 90s tech limits I guess, although there's no excuse for the freaky FMV render and sexualising it in the one cutscenes.

Jonell got into the character well though. I've really found a strong appreciation for Jonell's Lara recently. I never disliked her but she's grown on me a lot and become my favourite actress for Lara.
