South Park: The Fractured but Whole will be available for Xbox One, PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and Windows PC.
Once you get immersed in what you're doing. By the end of it I really saw nothing wrong with a lot Poly Lara running around a realisticly rendered world at all. (1 Hour ago)
It's maintained the realistic proportions and movements of modern Lara. But combined them with an aesthetic that was classic (albiet polygonal) it's weird how you stop noticing those visual diffences (1 Hour ago)
But it's still more recognisably "tomb raider". I played half of rise of tomb raider with the classic polygonal Lara model and that was a good compromise. (1 Hour ago)
@MrWhite: I think there's still a bit of a jarring visual thing between the silicone sex doll proportions of Lara and the realistically realised world she's running around in. (1 Hour ago)
SFV is a very good game. I'm glad Capcom stuck with it despite the rocky start. (1 Hour ago)
