The Lara Croft redesign is great. I literally laughed at her proportions in Underworld. She looks like a real person now.

You mean how she now looks like an actual woman instead of a 12 year old boy's wet dream?

Classic Dante looks like the most forgettable character ever conceived. At least the new Dante has some character -- even if that character is a bit douchey.

This thread single-handedly destroyed itself in the very first post. Lara's new character design is utterly awesome, and far better than how she used to look. Was absolutely the best move they could have done for the series.

Craziness.

Thankfully in the newest one they gave him his best look ever.

Except for the poor way UE3 handles hair. But the concept is good!

I agree with you. I honestly prefer the new one and don't see how it's all that different at all.

Best upgrade ever.

Jill on the other hand, now that's a travesty!

Seriously though, while he was never a fantastic character he is just comical roided up and stupid looking now.

Also, Metal Sonic's redesign as Neo Metal Sonic in Sonic Heroes is just... wtf...



What a badass. The black cape, sleeve things, studded belt, and elongated spikes make him so cool. *eyeroll*

Well, obviously I disagree. I only liked his personality before, but now I like the whole package.

The only crime in the RE series I see is what they've done to Jill. She's a train wreck.

Nostalgia.

Taking it out of the equation, the old Sonic looks like Mickey Mouse. Not that it's a bad thing, but it's a Mickey Mouse clone. The new Sonic was more unique, it stood out more to help identify the character and amplify the traits it was supposed to have since the first game, but couldn't because it looked like Mickey Mouse.
