I assume it's because next-gen mode ran like crap and took up a whole lotta space while it wasn't that spectacular. I'm actually glad, Tomb Raider shouldn't be all uber-realistic, I think it looks good now and it runs fine.

It is not true, TRA,
is really fantastic game ;) ,
but graphic is not best,
in my Czech Republic,
reviewers critique graphic :rolleyes: .
I don't understand Crystal Dynamics.
They made TRL with great graphic :thumbsup: ,
and afterwards, they made TRA,
really great and classic TR :thumbsup: ,
but with ugly graphic :( .
I really don't understand that... :eek:

If you're not running it at maximum effects, you have no room to comment.

Upgrade your computer and see for yourself.

I'm running it on a 8800 GTX@ 675/2052 1920*1200 16xAA/16xAF with C2D@3.5GHz and the game looks like poo compared the legends in next gen mode. Maybe next time you should ask what specs i'm using before making a stupid comment.

No, Next Gen mode runs great here with 4xAA and looks amazing.

...Ugly graphics...?
....3-4 years ago...? :confused:

Can't you people be happy? Even when you've got the best graphics so far in a TR, you've still got to complain.

Honestly...

Yes, I have, for a matter of fact. And yeah, it was good. Few more trees, great lighting, overall a bit nicer (then again Lara looked like platiscine, not all good) but nothing to write home about. The lagging out wieghed the graphics anyway.

What I'm angry about it people saying TRA is crap graphics, looks like something from years back, ect. ect. blah, blah, blah, winge, winge, moan.

TRA is amazing graphics, it's beautiful, and just becuase we got a taste of Next-Gen graphics (that, may I add again, did'nt actually run smoothly) suddenly everybody is pining for it again.

But Athiest people who says:

They are right :rolleyes: . And if you have old graphic card,
justifiably you could play NextGen smoothly :rolleyes: !

No, there not the best graphics so far in TR, the best graphics so far are in TRL. TRA is a great game but feel it deserved better, with the next gen mode it would have lasted and made a much bigger impact visually; as it is its forgetable.

Not quite sure if we're playing the same game but having played through the majority of TR:A you sirs are poorly mistaken. I'm afraid even certain gamesites disagree with you. Take from "Gamespot":

Well, Anniversary looks quite good--more like a PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 game--though the only other versions of Anniversary are for the PlayStation 2 and the Wii. In fact, Anniversary looks as sharp as last year's Tomb Raider: Legend.

You're kind of contradicting yourself there. First you come off saying TR:A is an ugly game (from post #3: "but with ugly graphic" and Post #13: "TRA is crap graphics, looks like something from years back, ect. ect. blah, blah, blah. They are right") and now you're saying you agree that if Legends didn't have Next-Gen (which ran horribly for most people and was fairly unoptimized "for the PC") TR:A "have best graphic in TR" ... so which is it? :scratch:

Please tell me what's horrible, ugly, crappy about the graphics in this:

EDIT: And on sceen for example,
textures are in low resolution.
And if you are modder, some people makes,
Lara nicer than original Lara.
But I doesn't say TRA is ugly game,
TRA is fantastic game!

Oh believe me, they're quite pretty while you playing and you can see a lot of details. They're by no means low resolution provided you have the graphics card to crank everything up. It's a nice change from the plasticy pixel shaded textures so many games are spitting out these days. If the effect isn't done right it just looks horrible "in my opinion".

Yes, I do know. I have an X1900XT over clocked by quite a bit ("basically" the same card heh). My brother has the Nvidia equivalent and is able to run it at 1680x1050 (monitors native resolution) on maximum settings with x6AA and x16 AF ... it's quite breathtaking.

I'm not disputing the fact that Tomb Raider Legends looks great, which it does. The subject of this thread was that Anniversary looks like crap because it doesn't have next-gen...which isn't the case. You yourself have even changed your argument when people disagreed with you going from "it looks like crappy outdated 3-4 year old game" to "it'd be better than Legends if it wasn't for next-gen".

this thread is about why Anniversary not have,
NextGen mode ;) .

Verios
30th May 2007, 10:10
I believe the reason for it not having Next-Gen is Anniversary being designed for/around the Playstation 2 to coincide with the fact it was originally release on Playstation 1, PC and Sega Saturn. If that's the answer you're looking for ... but to say it looks like crap because it doesn't have that option is foolish. The PC version is basically a port of the Playstation 2 one, hence no Next-Gen content as it would cost extra resources that they weren't willing to invest. I imagine Tomb Raider 8 will have Next-Gen content.

30th May 2007, 10:38
Yes I also think ;) . And you are right.
If TRA is released NextGen not will be ;) .
