    Face off - Tomb Raider

    The console versions of Tomb Raider are still thoroughly recommended though. Despite some performance issues on both systems when the action is situated in more complex environments, the game manages to stick closely to the desired 30FPS update with only momentary lapses that impact the quality of the gameplay. While the 360 offers up slightly more consistent overall performance, for the most part the difference between the two games isn't significant, and it's also fair to say that the PS3 holds the advantage with regards to image quality and the general refinement of the overall presentation. This is a game where much of the experience is built around the spectacle and in that respect, PS3 offers an advantage of its 360 sibling. Aside from various instances where performance is visibly lower, the gameplay is otherwise just as enjoyable on Sony's system, and the sharper visuals better suit the overall feel of the game, highlighting the richness of the environments without as many unwanted side-effects. In that respect the PS3 version gets our recommendation as the preferred choice of the two console releases.

    Surprised the PS3 version was the winner with this, even so that's where I'll play it eventually since I have every single TR game on PS3 except for Angel of Darkness which is still isn't on PSN.

    Yeah in the article it talks about the PS3 version having significantly sharper visuals and mentions black crush issues on 360 due to its lower gamma settings. Been noticing a bit of a trend of PS3 winning out in these comparisons. Like Bioshock Infinite having better texture filtering and a little better performance. Interesting. Anyway sounds like the PS3 version is the definitive console version of Tomb Raider.

    I ended up getting it for 360 due to the pad but would love to play through it again on PS3 as the graphics were INCREDIBLE and watching vids they are even better on PS3. Will defo pick it up again...

    Someone said that in the comments section too, I haven't been keeping up with comparisons lately though but it's good that developers finally seem to be able to push the PS3.
