Tomb Raider’s PC Version Is Good, Despite A Few Stray Hairs

Kotaku - After about seven hours with Tomb Raider, I'm on board with Evan's endorsement. It's a very good game, and a strong example of the whole "game that's like a movie" thing that Uncharted laid out a few years back. But what of the PC version?

I've been putting it through its paces, and can happily report that it's a strong port, albeit with some stray rough edges that will hopefully be ironed out in the near future. The PC port was handled by Nixxes, the same people responsible for the great PC versions of Deus Ex: Human Revolution and Sleeping Dogs, among others. Like those games, the PC version of Tomb Raider comes with all manner of expected PC customization options, and it runs well. (PC, Tomb Raider)

She looks more natural with TressFx and it looks quite good.

It's the 'world's first real hair' so give it a break.

I love it... the game runs wonderfully and TressFX is certainly a step in the right direction... kudos to AMD for making it open source

it's open source. but it's kinda unplayable at the moment on nividia cards
Cueil  +   650d ago
yes... that's something they'll fix with a driver unlike a ton of the crap NVidia has done in the past

It looks even better with SweetFX! I applaud TressFX, but it makes her hair a little too active for my taste, and I don't like the performance hit.

TressFX takes too big a hit on my mid-range GPU, but I've still been playing on ultra without it, and it looks wonderful. Posted a bunch of screens on the forums here.

TressFX is cool to look at but its about a 15-20 FPS drop so i rather play without it.
