They really should have kept the cutscene they had with her attacking the big Oni in the Chasm

The music is much better, damn! And her face is better, but it could just be the low res texture of it/lighting/curtain of fringe they had covering it in the final.

Some interesting asset reuse:

Her scream towards the end of the pre-alpha trailer is used when she falls onto the rebar spike in the final build.

Also, anyone recognize the "oh, ****!" at 3:19 in the alpha gameplay? I do.

Interesting videos! I love these kind of videos, to see the progress from alpha to final product, and spot all the differences!

About the model, I can't decide which is better, as to me both early and final model are a bit... Mehh.

It's weird tho, why did they decided to glue her hair together, now it looks bad imo.. And that cutscene with big Oni! It's amazing, I'd like to hear the reason why Crystal decided to cut it.

So much work in TressFX to make her forehead bangs stay like concrete when she is upside-down. And PureHair has the same flaws xDDD

LOL.. sounds and looks much more like Lara than the final version.

This tends to happen a lot in games - where an earlier version looks better.
I mean, look at what happened to a few Resident Evil games (looks at RE4)

I like how she says "I will become a raider" Phhf - well she didn't do too much of that in Rise either.

The third game Lara better have grown up and stopped being a whiny little daddies girl (End of Rise looked promising though)

People tend to overestimate and glorify things, which they weren't given a chance to have a first-hand experience with. For all we know most of the alpha stuff could've been totally boring and barely playable. We only saw bits and pieces of it.
