Gosh she's so good. I keep on trying to picture any of the other voices for Lara in TRL when Lara's shooting at Amanda screaming, and when in TRU Lara has to shoot her mum, and I just can't. She brings those emotions across so well. There's no-one else like her :)

I don't know any of them, but maybe Jonell Elliott if she was not replaced by someone else for the US version of LR. That was OK.

In Germany you get your TRs "germanised" :?
So I wonder - are Polish TR editions in Polish or are they in English language ?
Who else has to live with TR games not being in their own language ?
Thou shall not mess with Lara's resting animation. NEVER. EVER!

TRs 1-5 are only in english, and 6-8 has polish subtitles. Anytime new part of TR comming out, polish fans
discuss about dubbing in game, because many games are full dubbed now, and we wonder if it's a good idea about TR games. Most of dubbed games are very nice made, but I think orginal Laras voice is better then voice some polish actress.

I always liked Jonell best, but since Legend I tend to prefer Keeley Hawes. I love the colour of her voice.

Judith Gibbins, but a close call for Shelly Blond.
Judith was so my first taste of Lara (got TR2 first, then TR1 a month later), she sounded like the best English woman.
Shelly sounded great to me, but very mature.
Jonell Elliott sounded very young to me, like a teenage Lara.
Keeley Hawes is realistic. Ok she ties for second for me.

I thought S. Blonde was the most appropriate voice for Lara Croft. Perhaps it was just because I played TR1 first, but she sounded more intelligent (and a more realistic portrayal) than the seductress in TR2 and 3. :-P
Don't get me wrong, Keeley Hawes was a great choice for Lara Croft, and it always reminds me of Tomb Raider when I watch Ashes to Ashes! I think the girl who did AoD just sounded angry, and childish...
