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.

The story is too old to be commented.
imvix2602d ago

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. =\

imvix2602d ago

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.

Ranshak2602d ago

Tombraider with mods = win.

I_find_it_funny2602d ago

PC is only forever compatibile only in theory, I got many games that won't work on Win7 and modern GPU

morganfell2602d 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.

MaxXAttaxX2602d ago

Impressive anti-PS3 trolling sir.

Unfortunately I was able to see through it. Maybe next time(?)

Darkfocus2602d 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.

reynod2602d 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_funny2602d ago (Edited 2602d 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

Ranshak2602d ago (Edited 2602d ago )


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.

MeanOldman2602d ago

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.

reynod2601d 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 Sears2602d ago

Check out the PCSX2 for PC. You will love how crisp and such better AA the game has.

Ranshak2602d ago (Edited 2602d 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.

iamtehpwn2602d ago

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

Raendom2602d ago

Looks like they added a few polygons to her nipples in this screenshot:

CrzyFooL2602d ago

omg ur right. <3 Crystal Boobnamics!!

kasasensei2602d ago

Nothing amazing, just a decent port. At least it's better than PoP.

Kamikaze1352602d ago

Definitely....the PoP port was horrible.

Kon2602d ago (Edited 2602d ago )

I'm have a strange feeling that in some images the PS2 version looks better.

Oops, i forgot that i'm on N4G. I can't have a different opinion, sorry guys.

Infernostew2602d ago

You forgot to take your fanboy goggles off, that's why.

ScentlessApprentice72602d ago (Edited 2602d ago )

But don't go crying to daddy just yet about how you can't get no friends on N4G. Remember: you are entitled to an opinion, just not a uneducated opinion, which with you seems to be a native thing.

Finally down to one bubble again? Good. Stay there.


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.

XI_-Minty-_IX2602d ago

"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."


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


Kazu0 Hirai2602d 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.

RyuCloudStrife2602d ago (Edited 2602d ago )

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..

mastiffchild2602d 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.

hazbaz2602d 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 loyalists?

Some people do need help, seriously.

ULTIMATE_REVENGE2602d ago (Edited 2602d 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.

BISHOP-BRASIL2602d ago (Edited 2602d ago )


If you are so damn sick of N4G go get your news in other forums. No one is asking for you to be here but somehow you believe mods should ban what you said yourself to be the majority of people here just to make your minority happy... Self entitled much?

smashman982601d ago

lol did u compare that to what he thinks look better wow ur comparison fail
this is more like ur wife asking should i get this dress or this dress

OllieBoy2602d ago

That feeling you have is that of a troll.

stu8882602d ago (Edited 2602d ago )

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.

smashman982601d ago

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

DaTruth2601d 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!

smashman982601d 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

You know what the say if u assume u make an ass out of u and me, so dont assume :)

Marceles2601d ago

It's OK..some people love bloom and sub HD resolution and textures
