Tomb Raider On PS4: "Same Game, Frame-rate Stutters, Lara Still Plastic Looking" Says Early Buyer
Few lucky Playstation 4 owners have already got their hands on copy of Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition, all thanks to GameStop and other retailers who broke the street date, and as a result of this early impression were bound to arrive on internet, and its not a good news for Crystal Dynamics.
Reddit user ChicagoBulls1984 got Playstation 4 version Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition early, and according to him its not that much better that PS3 port, its more or less the same game, framerate still stutters, textures upgrades are not that major enhancements and many more things.
"If you have already played it on ‘last gen’ consoles I would advise you NOT to get this version (at it’s current price). With all the back and forth about the technical benchmarks of this new definitive version, I can honestly say it does not look THAT much better than the PS3 version. This is not to say the new version looks bad, but it’s a testament to how good the game (and many other ‘last’ gen games) already looked. I know that on paper this version has a higher resolution and better framerate, but while playing it doesn’t add that much to the game." said ChicagoBulls1984.
He also added that Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition is not worth the $60 price tag it carries, and Killzone: Shadow Fall impressed him more than this enhanced edition to Tomb Raider.
"These differences are not worth 60 dollars, plain and simple."
"I have played a game like Killzone Shadowfall that was made specifically for the PS4 and looks like a much more substantial leap over last gen than this game does. Of course it is an exclusive title. For all the hype Crystal Dynamics spewed about this version and all of its graphical enhancements I can honestly say it is only slightly better. It is more or less the exact same game. Lara is still ‘plastic’ looking. The framerate stutters here and there. The textures have been enhanced but it isn’t anything major. Her hair looks better because of the tressFX system."
So in short, ChicagoBulls1984 states that if you have played Tomb Raider (2013) on PS3/Xbox 360/PC, buying Definitive Edition won't be a smart choice as it doesn't justify $60 price tag with the content it offers.
