Face-Off: Rise of the Tomb Raider on Xbox 360

Digital Foundry:
Ultimately, what we have here is one of the best down-ports we've seen in a while. Transitioning a game from a modern platform to less powerful hardware is not a trivial task. The sheer number of technical features included in the Xbox One version seems to suggest that Crystal Dynamics went all-in from a visual perspective during its creation - it does not feel as if its vision for the game was limited by the need to release the game on Xbox 360.

It's very impressive that the 10 year old Xbox 360 hardware can still hold up so well. Other than PlayStation 3, I don't think any other console will ever accomplish such a feat for a decade into its lifecycle.

I've watched the video. Of course the XBO version looks better but what's amazing is how good the the 360 version looks. Not everybody can see the difference between 1080p and 720p or notice the extra visual effects, although I definitely can. The higher resolution definitely helps me get more immersed in the game world, I choose higher Res and FPS every time. But if you just own an Xbox 360 you will be getting exactly the same experience. A great version for 360!

"First off, the most obvious difference comes from image quality. Xbox 360 renders the game at 1280x720 with a pass of FXAA producing results in line with the last game on the same console"

That is Insane news for XB360, full 720p visuals. impressive stuff. XB1 also looks impressive too.

the game looks beautiful on Xbox one and they did a graet job on Xbox 360 version. BO3 developers should be ashamed after their bad port on last gen.

Hopefully it comes out soon for PS4.. I want this game but its a timed exclusive.. Ill get the xb1 later on when new IP exclusives hit.. Good job at hitting 1080p M$
