    I'm considering it. I'm looking at getting the super-awesome version [~50]. But, I'm not sure if my laptop can run it... I think it can.

    It'd be good if they released a demo.

    Yes, I cannot wait for this game to be released! :-) I remember when I used to play the old Tomb Raiders and spend 24 hours to see if I could complete it!

    Looking forward to this next release, I wish they would also make another film!!

    Yeah it annoys me how few PC games they release demo's for these days, I can't understand why. It's a perfect way to test if your system will be capable of running the game, and it whets your appetite while you wait for release.

    I remember being fooled by an April edition of C&VG when I was about 13 - it said that if you stand on Lara's bed in TR2, plug a pad in to port 2 on the Playstation and tap out the tune to a particular song on the square button, she stripped. I tried for hours!

    Gutted when they revealed the following month it was an April fool's joke, more so when they pointed out the song was released weeks after the game!

    This new one looks great, seems to have a much grittier, more realistic story too. I must say I'm enjoying this trend in games and movies lately of making gritty origins stories , they almost always seem to be more adult versions of the things I loved as a kid

    There's no demo at all. Not even for consoles.

    Apparently, they "don't want to spoil the story"

    Lame excuse, they could easily put in a playable demo with no cut scenes if they didn't want to reveal the story.

    Even with other games these days though, PC demos seem rare... unless I'm just looking in the wrong place (Steam mainly)

    Don't know, Don't know. Playing through Tomb Raider Anniversary at the moment. Really like how close it is to what I remember from the PS1, but the puzzle's and nature of the game is annoying me after playing the excellent two Batman games. I'll think about once I've played through the Assassins Creed series, number four is announced (officially) on Monday

    That's too close to Ninja Pirates - we can't have that.

    The whole of the internet would implode - just like if someone did a half caveman, half spaceman.

    I'm hoping Steam will release this today, can't wait to play it... just hope it's not another disappointment!

    I'm hearing folk criticise it's similarities to Hitman (and I certainly expect there will be given that one of the Steam pre-order unlocks is a couple of weapons from Hitman), but I'm thinking that may not be a bad thing. Hitman style kills in a Tomb Raider world could be awesome. If it's just Hitman with Lara Croft though I'll be disappointed.

    If the new Aliens game tells us anything, its that we should not support the games industry using pre-orders. it allows them to rip customers off. They entise you with extra freebies that should have been included anyway! Vote with your wallet!
