I'd have loved an Anniversary-like remake of TR2 too, I have very fond memories of whipping around venice on that speedboat...
This trailer was cool n all but I'm with Astron on none of it feeling very 'Tomb Raider'. I'm not into it being a prequel, I'm not into it being all survival-horror...and I don't like her hair
Tbh I think Im just gutted about them jettisoning all the good work they did with the last 3. I was so excited for the follow up to Underworld
I actually thought Underworld was pretty great for the most part and I don't really know why it didn't get more love.
I think there were loads of things in Underworld (even if they took their cues from other franchises) that were a great evolution of TR's original concept. I thought the physicality was really tangible in a way that really captured the first game's USP- the climbing and diving and just barely making jumps....the sense of and exploration & feeling of solitude were back as well (Not to mention some of the 'moments' like flying your bike down that collapsing trap thing? Frackin EPIC!).
Its baffling to to me hear that the graphics were a problem on the PS2- on the PC it looks pretty stunning. Coastal Thailand was like running around in an animated movie (& that opening level? The fire?!)
It just needed a Mansion (& maybe an extra outfit change or two) & it would have been perfect...for me.
