Tomb Raider E3 Trailer | E3 2011

Okay, so I'm not a Tomb Raider fan, I never got into it.  Not because it was bad, but just because I tried most of the titles in the series, and just didn't like the controls, and overall felt pretty clunky to me.  It just wasn't my cup of tea.  Each time a new developer came along and tried to reboot or re-imagine the franchise, I thought would be worth checking out.  Still, no dice. 

But imagine my surprise when pulled into one of the private meeting rooms of South Hall just last week to see a two-level demo of the latest game, and then walking out, jaw-agape.  I cannot wait for this game!  This is probably the single biggest "surprise" of the show this year.  Funny; Uncharted did Tomb Raider better than Tomb Raider ever could dream, and now here we are, and the newest entry seems to want to dethrone the Uncharted series.  The game looks phenomenal...the graphics, the cinematic direction, the sound, the interaction, and even the voice acting is truly looking to up the ante and break all previous impressions you had of Tomb Raider...I cannot wait to play it.

We still have some time before its release, but here's the debut trailer unveiled at E3 2011.  What do you think?
