Looks nice.

But another source states that -

QUOTE
"Tomb Raider Legend owners will have to pay 2400 Microsoft points (GBP 20.40 / EUR 27.91 / USD 29.99) for all four episodes." - Eurogamer.net. Similar stories at <2b5f>http://www.pro-g.co.uk, http://www.gamesindustry.biz/

Where as here it states that 2 episodes will be 2400, all other sources state that all 4 episodes will be 2400 together.

Yeah, I've fixed my news post, it wasn't very clear.

Silly way to distribute I think.

Hmm... these screens are in 4:3.

Weird way to distribute the game.

Weird it is!

Now that's about half the price of a full version game here in Switzerland...
- but without a possibility to share the game with friends...
- and without additional achievement-points (or at least not 500 points)?

And it will have the same framerate-problems as TR:Legend had in 1080i.

I really enjoyed TR:Legend, but i will not buy additional content for that game for this price.

best regards,

Actually they are neither 4:3 nor 16:9. There were marked as 360 by Eidos though.

Cool, bet Alimo is kicking himself. :P

Ah so you pay 2400 MP once and you'll be able to download the next when it comes available?

@ rezehnder: Of course it won't lag, this isn't TB:L quality, so the 360 shouldn't struggle with this.
[edit] Oh wait, you need the TB:L disc to play this.. well, if it only uses the texture files.
(btw, 1080i is worse than 720p.. okay okay.. in my opinion)

2400 Points? I'm sold :)

I was expecting 4800 or something :)
Commented on 2007-06-18 15:07:42
I wonder how big the download(s) will be.

Cool, I'm not really used to non-widescreen images for 360 games!

TB:L runs really smooth while playing in 720p... but as my TV is optimized for 1080i and as i prefer that resolution when playing TB:L --> i had framerate problems all the time.
In my opinion TB:L is one of the games that looks far better in 1080i then in 720p (on my TV) and so i had to live with the framerate problems.

There was never a patch for TB:L to fix that problem, so I just hoped they would have fixed it for TB:Anniversary... but I guess that's not the case.

So on one hand; 50% of a full price game is cheap...
on the other hand; it's not worth it for me without the corresponding amount of achievement points. ;)

TB:L doesn't run very well at 720p either.
Commented on 2007-06-18 19:49:12
Looks like the PC game.. which isn't bad I guess. The PC game is sorta running on a pretty low-tech engine but it looks nice enough and it runs very well.
Commented on 2007-06-18 19:55:34
When did we start abbreviating Tomb Raider as "TB"?

But yeah, Legend didn't run that well in 720p. It wasn't too bad, but I wouldn't call it "really smooth".
Commented on 2007-06-18 21:18:42
I've played through this game twice on PC already, and that's plenty for me.

I'm curious what TB: Legend and TB: Anniversary are as well.

Why would they? having recently gone through both this and Legend on Gametap I have to say these games are awesome, almost good enough to make me forget TR:3 through AoD... almost.
