Im still debating as to which system i should buy tomb raider for. i have PC,XBOX,PS2 i want to get 1 for a hardware that will provide a nice blend of good gameplay,graphics and frame rate. i dont know if my pc will run it ok, my pc specs are:

WINDOWS XP PRO

AMD SEMPRON 2400+ @ 1.8GHZ

896MB OF RAM

POWERCOLOR RADEON 9600PRO 256MB


now i dont know how well i will be able to run the game. low,medium,high:confused: . if i could run it at medium or fairly high then ail most likely get the pc version if not then i will have to get or the xbox version or the ps2


the ps2 and xbox i have hooked up to an HDTV (with component cables)


so which do you guys think will be the best?

well i havent played this game yet heheh

but if the requirments for this game are anything like EverQuest 2 you WILL want to upgrade.

im running:
amd athlon 64 2800+ (Newcastle)
1gb (2x 512) of Kingston pc3200 ram
Ati Raedoen x800pro

and i really need anther gb of ram, a much better video card and faster processor

but i also don't know the requirments of the game lol

Well, I understand your demands on graphics and stuff....I'm just aiming for the "gameplay factor":) (And it's said many times in this forum that "Xbox moves the smoothest", Ps2 is just great, X360 is gorgeous yet for some reason, it moves laggy:confused: PC is just invincible....PSP's just amazing:D )

From your com spec, I think you can play it at medium quality or maybe a bit more, so for the PC. Besides, if there're bug appear (hopely no :p ) just get the patch, easy isn't ;)

Go here to test your computer: http://www.systemrequirementslab.com/referrer/eidos?registration_option_id=2524

These may or may not be the offical specs but they seem close enough. It tests it in 3 different sections: Minimum, Recommended and Optimal.

Denny, judging by your specs it looks like you'll be running TR:L in low settings, but check the site to be certain. :D

My specs:

AMD 64 3200+
1GB Kingston HyperRAM
XFX 7800GT 256MB

My score is one thing under optimal and that is 512MB for my gfx card. But really,that isnt a problem. 256MB GRam should be fine. And Scrow, 1GB Ram is fine and 1GB is in the optimal settings.

Yay! I passed with flying colours for the PC requirements test. I'm gonna get it on PS2 then decide whether it is worth it for the PC. Certainly looks stunning though!

Denny, you may be able to but it also depends on if you like controller's or WASD (read: keyboard). You can get a controller for the PC but its a bit different.

thanx, if the pc demo comes out the 11th (since i think it might come out the lastest the twenty something i think) then ail download and see how well it plays on my pc


and the xbox graphics are awesome i mean why else would all of TR:L gameplay videos be shown on the xbox


anyways i have a question, is the xbox version in widescreen or fullscreen?
