I think you should go for PS2, thats what Im going for (mostly cause I have a T&L support card which isn't good enough to play it on PC) plus for PS2, you won't have to worry about somthing wrong happening like you loose all your saves, or your computer brakes, or you get a very bad virus. So I'm going for PS2, saying so I remember reading on a PSM magazine that even on PS2 you can download new stages of off it and new clothes and stuff due to the new PS2 online experience.

P.S Just to let you know I have both the PC and Playstation version of Tomb Raider Chronicles:D. So if ya want you should go for both of them.

Well it really depends on what the specs are on your computer. To play angel of darkness, you should have at least a Pentium4 or 3 processor, at least 256mb or higher, and and a graphic card with 64mb or higher that supports directx 8. If your computer is not good enough for aod, then go with a PS2 version. I would go for a PS2 version, since you do not need any extra hardware to play the game. I just pre-ordered it for pc, but I am also getting a new pc. A dell with a geforce4 ti4200. Oh, changed my mind again :) No mac for me. Sorry for all those mac posts. :)

The PS2 version of the game will be more expensive than the PC one.

A T&L card will support the game.

Yeah I know it says that it will work on a T&L supported computer, but when I contacted the Intel(R) company they said that mine was an older version and that it will only simulate a T&L card so boo hoo to PC:p .

This is the E-mail that he gave me:

Hello Brad,
Thank you for cantacting Intel(R) Technical Support.

The Intel(R) 82845 Graphics Controller does not perform Transform and Lighting functions by hardware, It will rely on software for these needs. Some games will require video cards that perform transform and lighting by hardware. If this hardware feature is not dected, then these games will not run. No driver can solve this issue, since the game is looking for a hardware feature that is not present on the Intel(R) 82845G/GL Graphics Controller Chip which you have.

You know, both for PC and PS2.
Twice the game, twice the fun. That's my motto for today.:p

I have geforce4 ti4400 and p4 1.6
My main question: will AOD look graphically better on systems with similar specs to mine (geforce2 and up, p4), or on the PS2?

As far as crashing is concerned, it never has been a big enough problem to take away from the fun of the tomb raider games, so I think AOD should be far superior on the pc, mostly for graphical reasons.
