Tomb Raider Trilogy PS2/PS3 HD Comparison Screens Look Marvelous

Nicely done, Crystal Dynamics. It looks as if the Tomb Raider HD trilogy is lookin' good. If there's one thing the world needs, it's more Lara Croft in HD. (PS2, PS3, Tomb Raider Trilogy, Tomb Raider: Anniversary)

Should include HD comparison with the PC version as well, plus PC version even offers mods. Lastly there is no gaurantee current remake bought on PS3 will work on the next box. A purchase on the PC pretty much gaurantees a long life for the purchase.

Steam just had them all on sale last week too. I should have picked up the guardian of light or whatever it's called. It was $7. Never finished it on my 360 before it broke. =\

Friend of mine picked up Tombraider underworld just for 7 usd too, IMO thats the real HD version running beyond 1080p the PS3 version of underworld is barely 720p, textures on PC are far superior too.
Ranshak  +   1724d ago
Tombraider with mods = win.

PC is only forever compatibile only in theory, I got many games that won't work on Win7 and modern GPU
morganfell  +   1724d ago
^^^Agreed. I really miss System Shock 2. One of the best games ever. Especially with the hi res mod pack but I can't get it to run. Same with Bladerunner.

On a better note, I have Nocturne running smoothly with only some menu lag on Win7 64 bit.

Impressive anti-PS3 trolling sir.

Unfortunately I was able to see through it. Maybe next time(?)
Darkfocus  +   1724d ago
system shock 2 will run you just need to jump through some hoops first and pretty much any older game works in D3Dwindower if you set it to the right direct x version regardless of your hardware.
reynod  +   1724d ago

How many PS2 games can you play on the PS3 slim? thats right none.

There might be that odd old game that you cant play on the PC however, as off now there are even emulators to play old dos titles. Hence PC is the platform with ultimate BC, no 2 opinions there.
I_find_it_funny  +   1724d ago
@morganfell , yes System Shock, I also can't play Beyond Good and Evil, lots of glitches, unplayable, and what's weird SC:Chaos Theory

@reynod , you knwo on PC is technical issue, you need to do plenty tricks, slow down you CPU, use emulators, mess with DirectX, etc, end these days is worse and worse, when there are so many PC configurations, some trocks work only for some.
On consoles is just company's decision, it CAN be played, and you know what? I have my PS2, I can play my games, but I have NO intention on keeping second, old PC with Windos 98

Check out this link


Beyond good and evil runs fine for most. Sometimes settings may need to be tweaked.

You dont need a PC with windows 98, most games run fine.

On console its also Companies decision not to allow you to play(and charge you for remakes), so you are pretty much limited to their choice. I dont think everyone will be having a PS2 laying around and what when PS4 is out, will people be having 2,3 & 4 good luck with that.

reynod dude is your foot in your mouth? if you read these forums you know morgs one of the dudes like me thats got a 60gb ps3. that means he plays all ps2 games. thats better bc than your pc. yeah thas a rhyme.
reynod  +   1723d ago

Are you retarded? do u actually expect people to remember if you and someone else on this forum out of the thousands actually has a fat PS3.

Even if you do its going to die at some point, I have 3 friends who have had their fat PS3's Die over the last 10-12months. All of them were launch models. Hardware inevitabally dies. Good luck with the BC when you replace with a slim model.

Just imagine how much more crisp Final Fantasy X and Kingdom Hearts 1 and 2 would look with an HD mix.
George Sears  +   1724d ago
Check out the PCSX2 for PC. You will love how crisp and such better AA the game has.
Ranshak  +   1724d ago
PCSX2 is awesome, i tried running GOW 1 and GOW 2 on PC in 1080p runs great ;-) Anyone looking for PS2 BC should give it a try. Dual core overclocked between 3-3.5ghz should handle it fine.

@George. I've already played FFX and KH2 in HD on PCSX2. But a PS3 HD port often has updated textures, effects, and geometry.

see this what I'm talking about, the three of you and many other Sony loyalists on this have the brain of fishes because they tend to forget in seconds who's not a troll/fanboy and who isn't.

Kon generally supports the PS3 but in this case he said something which sounds negative (to the loyalists) so they immediately attack him by calling him a fanboy or troll.

You people help seriously.

No he doesn't. He does not own one in the first place.

Kazu0 Hirai  +   1724d ago
i agree kon, the ps3 remake really doesnt look any better. in fact, the first pic i looked at i thought the one on the left was the HD remake, until i looked at the bottom and saw it was the ps2 version and my jaw dropped. very poor graphics in the remake.
RyuCloudStrife  +   1724d ago
I agree
people need to stop disagreeing.. the truth is the truth, what Kazu0 Hirai said is the truth theres not much difference.. people disagreeing need to actually click the link and look at the pics and not be a blind fanboy..

mastiffchild  +   1723d ago
Which I did. while the difference isn't day and night it's still obvious the PS3 screens are a good deal better than the PS2 ones and I find it hard to think anyone would think otherwise-the PS2 shots are murky and blurry by comparison and there seems a lot of work went into the textures to upgrade more than pure res.

Nothing to do with fanboyism, unless you're a CD fanboy, as it's the quality of the port and not the PS3 that's important here. It's lain to me that the remake screens are just a good step up from the originals.
hazbaz  +   1724d ago
So...if he said fire is cold, we should agree with him because it's his opinion and if we disagreed we would be what...ice loyalists?

Some people do need help, seriously.
ULTIMATE_REVENGE  +   1724d ago
I didn't say that you, I don't agree with him but the idiots calling him a fanboy are the ones my comment was aimed at, you fail at reading comprehension. The fact that some dumbasses agreed with you shows the level of intelligence you Sony loyalists have.

This site is over run by Sony worshiping slaves and this site is hated by so many other sites and forums. I think it's about time the mods did something about it.

It's time for mass account banning.

@XI_-Minty-_IX: You need to learn how to 'READ' someones comment history.

your right mate, you can't give your opinion - bit of a joke really. I hear where your coming from!
check this one out:

the texture of the table thing underneath the artifact (the scion) looks les res than the PS2 one. That's a fact. Having said that overall they do look better! especially the Legend ones. I own this on PC, and have a PS3. If you think I'm trolling, suck 'em.

lol i feel bad for you kon when ever i see one of your comments its always getting viciously torn apart no mater what it is that you said. I remember one comment you said killzone 3 was pretty good but you enjoyed bulletstorm more or something like that and people just weren't having that. Just stay strong kon, stay strong
DaTruth  +   1723d ago
Maybe they don't like Bulletstorm more, thus they disagree!

man 1: I think Bulletstorm is a great game!

Man 2: I disagree, I didn't like Bulletstorm!

You guys seem to be the ones who have a problem with people disagreeing with you. A majority of the people in the world like Killzone 3 more than Bulletstorm, so it only stands to reason that a majority of people on N4G would feel the same and disagree with him!
smashman98  +   1723d ago
no i dont have a problem with people disagreeing i wasnt talking about disagrees at all so let me tell you da truth (haha)

i was talking about how people attack him and call him a troll and then continue to bubble vote him down when in fact he isnt trolling

I'm sure it does look better but those tiny screens don't really demonstrate that.

EDIT: look at the hair and body.. ps2 looks better.. its wierd lol

Its only AA and higher resolution!The textures are the same!If you played the Ps2 the 360 or the PC version theres nothing new to see,aside from the trophys!At this price tag is a no go for me!

Can't these mouse wigglers see the PC will always have the advantage as an ever evolutionary platform??

Pretty much worse fanboys ever. I guess they have to wait for a good game worth playing to be released on their 1,200 dollar PC.
smashman98  +   1723d ago
well u gotta be honest when they get a multiplat game (not even as often as the wii now) it really does look sooo much better and they get to play it for 10 dollars cheaper than the rest of us.

But to PC gamers we know ur PC is awesome but when u come on saying things like doesnt look as good as this on PC in 12342554538p x 12312311p

it just makes you look bitter
blakstarz  +   1724d ago
Look nice....you can see the detail popping out of the screenshots especially the mountain screenshot.
Why is it that whenever a console game is discussed, people gotta pull the PC out of their ass. I think everyone knows by now the PC will always have the advantage, but that is nothing new so stop sounding like a broken record.
sway__z  +   1724d ago
Dear God, you admit PC will always have advantage over console, and ppl still disagree. Proves my point...PC gamers are bigger fanboys than console fanboys.

360 and PS3 owners should unite against PC tyranny...oh wait, 360 owners are the PC's closest cousins lol

Orionsangel  +   1724d ago
I'm a PC and Console gamer and I've run games at full specs and in my honest opinion. Yes the PC version looks better if you have a maxed out rig, but the difference is not as dramatic as it used to be, say ten or more years ago. When it was console games on standard def tube sets vs CRT and LCD monitors on PC games, but when HDTVs came out. It changed the game and now it's not that big a deal for me whether I have the PC or console version. Where back in the day I was jealous of my friends who had the PC version.

nevin1  +   1723d ago
Im sorry but I agree with comment from the link as this doesn't look remotely impressive. I actually was debating which looked better and i leaned towards the PS2 version.

here's the quote

"This looks far far far from amazing. In fact, it still looks very much like a ps2 game."

You ppl are just buying trophies. My BC PS3 does a good job displaying PS1/PS2 games in HD just fine. Im sorry but im not seeing the effort.
Masterchef2007  +   1723d ago
Never really played any tomb raider games (but i did spend hours screwing around with the farting butler). From what i have seen they seem to be doing a good job with the collection.

There's not much of a difference except now i can see the stitches on her top.
Its still a good game tho.
