Review for Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition is now out in the wild. And IGN's review basically confirm the source previously posted about the controversy on the FPS between PS4 / Xbox One
Of all the controversies, I really dont like Lara's redesign. She's not the same Lara I played with (giggity) on my PS3. I hope the revert back to the old design for the sequel.
I found the new Lara looks much better in motion. Her face doesn't look so young anymore.
From what I played it looks like her new face struggles showing emotion well. I'm really enjoying the new graphical fidelity tho, makes it seem like a new game.
She looks like the box art now.
*fanboybeatdown* you must not have got the memo. The ps4 version is superior to the pc version in terms of raw graphical fidelity. Same goes with need for speed and most newly released games. Sorry your 1500 dollar rig cant touch a 400 dollar console lol. Unlike your dribble, you can actually google my facts and find out your totally wrong. Facts are facts. Not only do you have no exclusives as a pc fan but now you cant even boast graphical superiority lol.
@fangirlbeatdown Yeah, no. The PC version doesn't have all of the extra graphical features that the PC version does. It's no longer a definitive version.
@fanboybeatdown I guess that your "two year old desktop" must be so powerful it allows time travel - because the 7950 GPU which you claim that you have in there was actually only released less than a year ago... Either that or you're a lying turd :)
It's the same great game that is Tomb Raider. It deserves that score, even if the improvementes are barely noticeable. The problem here it's the price, it shouldn't cost that.
The improvements are noticeable. The game is beautiful.
Of course, but those improvements aren't huge when comparing to the PC version. It's a steal. Again, the game looks beautiful, yes, but the price... Square Enix stuff.
If you're playing on PS4, the improvements are noticeable. Still though, doesn't justify a 60$ price tag. Max I would have went with was 40$
I'm concentrating on the price, it's not fair to pay 60 dollars for that when the PS4 clearly it's capable of more.
I was saying paying full price for it was too much too. Then I thought about it. This is Square Enix.
Seems worth $60 to me as I didn't play the 360 or Ps3 versions and glad I didn't, it is stunning looking and buttery smooth on PS4 so far. I fully understand you gamers who played it already. They should allow you an upgrade for $20 - 30 if you played the game already and show achievements in your profile.
So...you're saying if you play on the X1, the identical graphical improvements are NOT noticeable?
I'd say its only worth it if someone never bought the game. Or if you sold the 360/PS3 which would be a bad move. Also Not to many next gen games out now. Otherwise yeah tone it down to 40$
Tomb Raider was one of those games that got pushed aside because of how many games I had left to play with my PS3. So I don't mind paying the $60 for the PS4 version, and honestly if I had played it back when it was released, I, like many, wouldn't be re buying it.
I need to teach my kitty to meow "bow" now.
i just got the game like an hour ago. looks pretty sick and I am loving the graphics. my first time playing it
I'm having a blast with this game also. Never got any of the previous versions, so this is like a new game to me. Worth the price tag if you've never played it.
Can I up grade from ps3 to ps4?
I haven't heard of or seen any "upgrade" options for this game yet. Keep an eye out though because maybe some individual retailers will offer such a thing if the game doesn't sell. I can see some offers of trade-in or in store credit if you do an exchange of the PS3 version to the PS4 version, for example.
ok thx! I have the ps3 version but didn't finish it because of TLOU! I would love to finish it on PS4 though!
That (TLOU) is a damn good reason to not finish the game, haha. I would say, honestly...that if you are not constrained too much financially, that you go ahead and sell the PS3 version and just get the PS4 version at your earliest convenience. Depending on how far you are in Tomb Raider and how much you liked it, of course; the PS4 version will be better just for the graphics upgrade alone. The gameplay doesn't seem to be changed too much so only upgrade if you truly like the game and want to experience it on a better visual level. I, for example, am only renting it on PS4 since I did finish the game on PS3 and am only renting it to see the graphical difference and give a good game a deserved second play through.
From the article "More interestingly, the Definitive Edition employs voice and gesture control on Xbox One and PS4 (if you have the camera add-on). You can say “show map” to pinpoint your location or name a weapon to equip it. I did actually start using that last feature, until the Kinect interpreted the sound of my kittens having a playfight on the carpet as me saying “bow” in the middle of a shootout with three men with assault rifles. Enemies’ shouts also sometimes seemed to activate voice control, though I’m reluctant to blame Tomb Raider for that so much as Kinect itself." LOL It's a great game but for me it doesn't offer much, I prefer the old TR games. I already played it on PS3 so I'll wait for it to be under $25 then get it, it would be better if we get it on ps+.
will buy at $40, hopefully within the next 3 months...
will be better availble games then. Dying light :D
So same score for both platforms even though one version is running at half the frame rate? i wish the had that leniency last gen. http://www.ign.com/games/ba... http://www.ign.com/games/ba...
LOL and ppl try to say ign are all for sony, i have noticed every multiplat game gets the same scores for both, they dont seem to be so critical on MS as they where on sony last gen.
I haven't played it so I am probably wrong but I know bayonetta was a fast faced hack and slash. If the frame rate was dropping as low as 10 I imagine that would make it very hard to play. Whilst TR on XB1 may be inferior,Iit still runs minimum 30fps and on average 45. TR doesn't need the 60fps so the slight drop although annoying doesn't impact gameplay in a meaningful way. But imo I think you're right. They should give the ps4 a better score even if its just 0.1 and explain the differences
To be fair its 45FPS in very static scenes with very little going on. So I expect that for the majority of the game it will run closer to 30FPS than 45FPS. Just my opinion.
Works good on with remote play.
I've pre ordered it from Amazon for £30, rented it on PS3 and I loved it.
Why is everyone complaining about price? If you never played it,it's a great game to pick up now cos if you have a next gen machine you must be hanging for stuff to play on it. If you played it already the games not really aimed at you so don't buy it if you don't want to pay full price. We all know it's not going to do huge numbers and drop in price in like a month to 6 weeks tops.
The price was a the only negative for me, but luckily in the UK it's been heavily discounted.
never saw the appeal with this game. its a soulless uncharted clone, wish they stuck with the roots of the original focused on platforming and puzzle sovling not cinematic QTE action
How many hours is the campaign?
When I played the full play through on PC, it took me about 8 to 10 hours to complete...That was without raiding all the tombs, getting items, etc.
I have Ultimate Survivor Editon on PS3....is it worth buying it on PS4 again..?
Loved it first time around and cannot wait to play it again, I just hope I can get off BF4 long enough to play it :)
still better than the PC version with all the added physics and effects. PC nerds, get mad >:)
I probably will get it but not for the full price
lmao @ $1000 pc's
