You can choose from 3 classic skins in Shadow of the Tomb Raider, but the question really is... should you?
Also, do we call these classic skins, or original outfits? I mean, an outfit doesn't change your entire face does it?

  • It's the uncanny valley - games look realistic now so combining them with low poly stuff of the past makes them look odd.

  • The Angel of Darkness skin does fit better. I agree that the 1997 skin just looks plain weird.

  • It feels like they just ripped the original models right off the PS1 games and threw them in here to troll us. Especially those who continuously asked for the original costumes as alternates 😒

    YarugumaSouYarugumaSouÅr sedan
  • Well then again graphically they had like almost nothing to work with, the most enriching stories often had quirky, or unique ways of telling stories often through cutscenes like How Spyro trilogy worked, so the models In-Game where often lower quality compared to the higher quality Pre-Rendered Video Models They didn’t always use In-game models for animations like they do now.

  • I like it for the Nostalgia. But they should’ve just added the outfits, not the polygon models as well. Ugh.

  • tbh, when the camera focuses on Lara, the polygon model made the blurred background seem real. Like someone Photoshop polygon Lara into the photo.

  • I only ever played PS1 Tomb Raider. Never seen the film or any other render of her after the PS1 version, or remember what she looks like from seeing her in the steam store. So this skin is what I think when I think of Tomb Raider. I wonder if this will break immersion for me? I watched this video (slightly high) and guess for a game its feels normal in a strange way?! I may now buy this game yet had no desire to before!

  • It doesn't look that bad in the gameplay. Quality animations sure help a lot. And even in cutscenes I am only bothered by seemingly oversized head.

  • The classic skins are the best part, it makes the bland story much better. I have to say why they didn't have the legends,anniversary and underworld skins too, as those might have been better to use.

    Bobby NickBobby Nick2 år sedan
  • Why didnt they just give us the game model for this lara and give her the clothing from the original games

    Charles XavierCharles Xavier2 år sedan
  • I'd play the whole game like this. All the characters are super low poly but the environment is as detailed as it can be, as is the lighting. It creates a very interesting dynamic; if I were a game designer I'd definitely explore that.

  • So does the Angel of Darkness Skin have mouth movements at least? So that the game has any worth. Why couldn't they use the original Lara Croft cutscene modell though? Would make the game more Tomb Raider.

  • Honestly, I think if the entire game could be changed to that low poly look, while still keeping all of the modern effects, lighting, and some modified textures, it would create a certain charm that I think would work well.

    • They could have animated the AOD Model though. Facial expression was introduced in that game. She still looks good though. Instead of those prequels they should start a reboot of the Angel of Darkness planned trilogie.

  • Who in the world actually watches... what did you call them, "Cut scenes"? The assistance of those stupid intrusive movies is what disturbs me about modern games. When I'm playing a game, I expect to be left alone to play. I don't even buy modern games unless I can disable those disruptive 'cut scenes' from the beginning or skip them on the fly. If I'm in the mode for a movie, I'll go to the movies... Anyway, I like the skins in or out of game play mode.

  • Looks like people are trying as hard as they can to don't tell Lara that something is wrong with her. Like when someone have a deformity that WILL get your attention, but also have to be polite and pretend that there's nothing wrong. Maybe a very subtle social critic?

  • This skin would be the only reason why I'd even play this Tomb Raider. So far, I've only played 2013 and it was incredibly boring, so having this skin would definitely take a load off of this new series' shoulders. Who needs a long dull story when you have a surreal experience of a lifetime?
