What happened to the next gen mode? My first impressions are that it doesn't look even half as good as Legend did with next gen mode on. It is more just a slight step up from the last game which did away with next gen.

Doesn't look that good. I had strange shadow issues on characters tho, mainly in the open cut scene, similar to mass effects and dynamic shadows thing...look so strange and unreal.

Yeah I had the same shadow issues, although the rest of the game was ok the opening scene had some atrocious shadows.

Is there configuration files for this game, I can't find the damn thing :(

i will wait for final review on this product...i don't think i will be getting the game if this is what it will be like.

Why doesn't anyone ever make high quality skyboxes for their games? (Well, there is the rare exception). But just look at this one, bluury mountain backgrounds and such, most likely constructed from real photos... Why not maintain them at a really sharp and clear quality? Man it'd look so much better.

How does it play, any good?

It flys in terms of framerate, but the overall quality is really not that good.

The camera angle can be really annoying..the first climb on the wall and the jump from the wall to the little cave thing...omg so annoying i couldn't see where i was jumping to...

Tomb Raider Legend had a better camera

Backgrounds and skybox have that same sprite-y look as Serious Sam 2.

This game looks and runs great. I don't know what you guys are seeing.

The water at the beginning is simply unreal.. some of the best I've ever seen.

Lara's model is improved.. she gets dirty when rolling on the ground. Birds pirch on trees and bushes. Trees and bushes bend when she walks through them which really enhances the feeling of being surrounded by vegetation, etc.

Everything is more realistic looking/feeling. Great game, and I will definitely pick it up.

i thought the water was bad -.-...the water looks ok but the actual way the water interacts with the surrounding is...well there is none..apart from making lara wet -.-

Got motion sickness. I was playing with a pad, but As a whole i didnīt like the camera much.
They shouldnīt allow the camera to move by itself.

The firefights was super boring if you ask me.

Same thoughts here... I thought it was a great demo and I really look forward to picking up the retail game.

The whole whiney PC gamer dynamic is getting really old. Not every game is going to look like Crysis, people, and it's time to get over it.

my only complaint is the camera, often it did something weird.

or how in some places you can't see the ledges that you supposed to jump to

It just seems like more people these days pick up a new game to play and then spend the entire time looking for just about anything to complain about rather than enjoying their 30-50$$$ purchase.

Exactly, and this seems especially true amongst PC gamers.

Is there any reason why this game doesn't yet equal the visuals of Uncharted?

Is there any reason that you cant do anything other than ***** all the time? and dont even say that you dont.

And BTW this game at 1680X1050 with 8XAA and 16XAF running at a constant 60+FPS on my rig makes uncharted look pretty pale in comparison.

Aren't you the same guy that keeps signing up, making a few posts then getting banned?

The platforming part was pretty good imo. But you have to agree that the firefights was bad?

That combined with the camera problems is to much of a turnoff for me.

Not impressed with this game at all. The graphics were 'meh' at best and the camera is terrible. Movements seemed 'jerky' while climbing walls, etc... Just not smooth animations.

Won't be picking this one up.
