i found this online, the new detail in the main character is noticeable, and everything else in the game got beefed up as well


Wow, is that ever a downgrade.
The nose is a textured bump, the textures and lighting are clearly lower res, it looks like the hair is lower res as well...
Apparently, making laura have a more Asian looking mouth = better graphics?

Lol, for a minute I thought the new face was an improvement. Congratulations TC, posting that just completely destroyed your argument - that face is terrible.

PC is the only place to play games at their true potential
1080p/60fps standard, upgradable, mods, FOV sliders, ultra graphics - it's backwards compatible too

Actually all in-game characters were updated for next-gen; but Lara is the star so she got the super-deluxe treatment! We did up rez geometry, textures, and other aspects for all primary characters in the story.

her new face is much nicer

her face looks more like the actress but one thing i wish they would do is unify all her art, lara croft looks COMPLETELY different between her artwork, cg cut scenes, and in-game models.


Her new face is so incredibly low res and less detailed than the PC version it makes me throw up a little in my mouth every time I see this pic.

LOL it's actually much more better and more cg like..the pc version doesnt add more textures and polygons it only makes it sharper from higher res and aa, like how i can make bioshock 1 look more sharper on pc than xbox 360 but the games nearly look identical other than sharpness

i think it's nice

ITP: less detail in every respect = "more cg like"

I wouldn't be surprised if the version specifically tailored for modern(ish) hardware looks better than an improved version of a game made for old hardware. Based on those screenshots, it looks different instead of better, but whatever floats your boat, I guess. Personally, I like the old Lara more. The new one seems to be a bit too cute.

That being said, so what? We got a pretty Tomb Raider last year. Console gamers will get it this year. It's not like this can be used to compare the graphical capabilities of the two platforms.

Yeah it definitely looks better than the PC version does on medium.
