Amanda

Does eidos have a certain 'evil female' look they give their characters becasue i have noticed Amanda look ALOT like Natla from TR 1. They have the same hairstyle and hair colour, they both have the same figure (well kinda) and they both somewhat sound alike

who else has noticed this?

I havent noticed that, thanks for notify that ;)*

And i think they have the evil female in mind. Well everything in nature comes with both sides, good and evil / ying and yang ...

Maybe Lara and Natla / Amanda =Pp*

Perhaps they thought Natla was very successful as an evil female, so they felt assured that they would have another successful evil Amanda if they followed the same formula?

I agree with ProGrape ;)

And yup, I remember to ear Lara saying that in cradle of life, raider7. In fact i used it here to explain my opinion.

But i can edit my previous reply if you feel too shocked :-?

Yup, the Tomb Raider games have bad graphics untill they made Chronicles. I think they started to have good graphics when they made that game. We can see it in legend ;)

And thanks for the last sentence =)*

The graphics in tomb raider 2 and 3 were better than in 1 and for tomb raider 4, those graphics were alot better. Then came Chronicles, AoD and Legend. Theses 3 games have excellent graphics, in my opinion. And, your welcome Koalah ;-)

Is there an option to play as amanda, i read in a magazine that once you've completed the game you get an option to play through as amanda. Also i think amanda has white hair over blonde, or she does on the 360 version..
