Tomb Raider Trailer: Lara is Tougher and Anatomically Correct

Lara is impaled on a spike, pistol whipped, burned, and dashed against the rocks (among other tortures). This looks like a darker Tomb Raider.

I am extremely happy to see an anatomically correct Lara Croft. I didn't spend much time with the other Tomb Raider games and the massive boobs were a major reason. It may sound silly, but I don't like to be treated like a slobbering male that gets excided over bouncy, pixelated boobs. 

This trailer is insanely brutal. In fact, I am finding it somewhat unbelievable. She falls from quite a height and is impaled on a spike. She merely pulls it out and keeps going (thought she is limping while holding her side). She falls off of a ledge to a hard landing, is pistol whipped, set on fire, it's endless abuse throughout the entire trailer. 

The game seems to have a darker tone. Toward the end, Lara is forced to blow some dude's head off... She proceeds, totally covered in his blood. 

It's also nice to see a female character that can hold her own. I'm really getting sick of weak and weepy damsel in distress  stereotype that is still perpetuated in today's games (the recent Far Cry 3 trailer). Tomb Raider really looks to be worth checking out. Let's just hope it isn't terribly linear.

Never played any of the Tomb Raider games but this one looks pretty sweet. Hey i thought she was just naturally gifted...

 This actually looks really good, can't wait to play it upon release. Hoping it will be every bit as good as the trailer makes it out to be.

 Haven't played a Tomb Raider game since Tomb Raider 2... I never liked any other Tomb Raider release because it lost it's charm which I felt with TR2.

This darker tone TR looks good and as Logan mentioned the new Lara Croft who is proportioned correctly is better than her past incarnations (remembers one TR game that was released for GBA, iirc, where they took the time to animate her disproportioned boobs LOL).

Hope this will have the same charm that got me into TR2 gameplay and story-wise.

 I get it's supposed to be dark, but goddamn! Am I the only one who thought the abuse of our protagonist to be a little excessive?

 Pretty sure it's LARA, not Laura.

 Fortunately this one is a reboot, now we can forget the others existed and enjoy an entirely new spin on the franchise.... A more realistic, gritty, and fun one.

 I'm highly looking forward to this new Tomb Raider.
