ANGELINA JOLIE WILL NOT VOICE LARA

[ July 22nd 2005 ]

Eidos has confirmed Tomb Raider star Angelina Jolie will not lend her voice to Lara Croft in Tomb Raider Legend, despite rumblings from the industry to the contrary. Eidos has also dismissed the return of dinosaurs and mummies in an attempt to restore the original properties of Tomb Raider.

Speaking to Playstation World, Executive producer Mike Schmitt touches on the incredible realism attached to Lara Croft. "We felt she'd had the same look for a bit too long and it needed some modernising. We wanted to make her more realistic - we've always felt she's a bit too cartoonish - but at the same time we wanted to make sure that she still looked like the video-game character people know and love."

One point that dogged The Angel Of Darkness was the abhorrent control system that literally drove fans of the series over the edge. Mike Schmitt puts to rest fears of a repeat performance. "The controls and camera systems are completely new. Lara needs to move as good as she looks, so a lot of work has gone into making the controls as intuitive as possible.

"The camera system is coming on nicely too. You're often presented with camera views best suited for the task at hand but, at any time, the player can manually manipulate the camera as they'd like."
