Hooray, Tomb Raider’s PC Version Is Now Way Less Crash-tastic

Kotaku - Tomb Raider's PC version is generally strong, offering a better-looking, higher resolution, smoother tomb-raiding experience than its console counterpart. That said, if you're using an Nvidia graphics card, the game could be pretty unstable, though that instability is usually fixed by turning tessellation off. (PC, Tomb Raider)

sucks that a lot of pc games suffer from game breaking problems. thats why i love the convenience of console games and love the more polished pc games that requires high system specs.

Well said.

Broken PC games are usually the result of console ports, Ill stick to PC games that work instead of generic tunnel based Console titles.
hiredhelp  +   617d ago
Well SPAM you'll be glad to know the game despite few nvidia problems was very much optimised for PC and very well done.
Myself used a AMD card with latest beta drivers no issues my best game this year so far.

Like Sim City and Diablo 3 yeah?

You don't need high system specifications to enjoy PC gaming. For example, this game will look and run great on a mid-range system.

I couldn't imagine buying a game and have it not work well enough to play it.

I don't have the patience for PC gaming, I'd completely lose my shitt. Although, I still want to build a gaming PC.

In two decades of gaming across all platforms, I've had to deal with far more issues on consoles. Crashing, freezing, etc.

Thing is, if something is broken with a PC game, there's the potential to fix it--to work around it. Either on your own, with community help, third party tools, or via developer patching. But with console games? You can really only hope developers fix the issues in a patch, and even then, that's only THIS generation.

Keep in mind patches cost money. Developers have stated, in the past, that the restrictions console devs have for certification up the cost of patches.

Not knocking console manufacturers, it just is what it is.

Can't say I have had any problems with the PC version
TheFamous1  +   617d ago
Same here.. I've had zero problems and zero crashes.. so I'd like to see the statistics fueling this article.
SP3333D-O  +   617d ago
Ditto. Zero problems. Looked and played fantastic.
fermcr  +   617d ago
Finished the game on the PC, had zero problems... and i have a nvidia graphics card.

What's funny is that I completed Tomb Raider before the latest patch with no problems whatsoever (GTX 570). Post latest patch, however, geometry is all messed up, clipping is literally taking away parts of the map, particularly on Shantytown, so that I cannot progress any further.

Don't get what's going on with this game on PC. It went from being perfect (for me) to being unplayable and broken.

Get it figured out, devs, because I love this game and not being able to play it is upsetting.

same I finished game 3 days after launch no issues at all

i7 2600k@4.8
8GB ram
2 GTX 580s
gamernova  +   617d ago
Exactly! Running on 3770K @ 4.5, 16 gigs RAM, gtx 670. It runs smoother with the updates though; I get higher number for benchmarks.

Childish title from a childish website.

How can Kotaku be forever removed from n4g???

I just got into pc gaming and I kind of enjoy it. There are downsides tho like the game not being compatible with my OS (Crysis on win 7) and games crashing constantly (hitman:a). I recently upgraded from a 6850 AMD to a 7950 AMD which in my opinion is going from mid to high end. I think to be a pc gamer u need to have a basic idea of how pc's work because I can promise u that u will need to fix something. Console gaming imo will always be better simply because u pop on a disk and play. But for raw power and the best graphics pc's are untouchable...now back to trying to get crysis to run!!!

It is sad some have had problems with tomb raider. I am glad though i only had one glitch and it was when you try to get the boat fixed and the ocean has a static image that lays on top of the actual ground of the map, other than that my i5 3570k and hd 7950 handled it maxed out with 2xssaa at 60 fps with no problem
