Poll requested by Phlip

Next gen would include the next gen PC and Xbox 360 versions current gen or last gen as Phlip terms it would be PC (current gen), and the other console versions.

I play in both last and nextgen. :)

I also play both, since my PC still has trouble playing in next gen I usually only use it for screenshots, I am a console player so would rather play the Xbox 360 or Xbox versions.

Last Gen for me. Next gen is way too laggy on PC.

I played it in Last Gen. I'm thinking of getting it for the 360, just so I can download Anniversary.

I don't have an XBox 360 and my PC doesn't run Next Gen . So last gen for me:(

I've played both versions but I ended up buying the 360 version so if I replay it again in the future it'll be next-gen only.

{eith;3861319']I played it in Last Gen. I'm thinking of getting it for the 360, just so I can download Anniversary.

At this point it would probably be cheaper to buy the disc-based version of TRA for 360 :)

If I could by-pass Legend again completely, I would but I can't find the disc version of TRA anywhere. :(

Last gen. Even with the newest GForce graphics card, next gen completely screws up the frame rate. Plus, skin tones sometimes look oversaturated.

Last Gen.

The environments look great in Current-Gen, but Lara's model looks like an alien or a doll made out of oily wax.

Next-Gen

I played the Xbox 360 version. :D

26-07-09, 16:31
I got the PS2 version first and then the 360 version a couple of years after. The environments are definately much prettier on the 360 but Lara looks awful and waxy like RAID said.

Both!

First i played trl in last gen then i purchased TR legend for xbox 360 :D

tarcairion
26-07-09, 17:10
both for me, too ;)

when i bought Legend, i only had a TI4200 in my computer, but later bought a ASUS AH3650 SILENT
and i was happy to re-play Legend in next gen.

I played it on last generation (PS2), though I have also had a go of the XBox360 version at my friend's house, the graphics are stunning! :tmb:

26-07-09, 19:14
I have played it mostly in Last Gen, since my old PC couldn't run Next Gen very well. Also, modding is much easier on Last Gen. I have played all the levels individually on Next Gen (except the first half of Kazakhstan, which always crashes), but never the full game from start to finish.

Generally I don't play Legend at all, but when I do, I play it on PS2 (Last Gen).

Both. Well, it would be more correct to say "I've played", 'cause I've finished the game in every system I have and I don't think I'll be playing this again for a long time.

(PC last gen, XBox, PS2, PC nxt gen, XBox 360)

Last gen, my pc sucks, and im not buyin a 360 anytime soon. Although I havent picked up legend since it came out lol

Lemmie
28-07-09, 01:16
I play either - Last Gen when I want to take screenshots and video, Next Gen when I just want to enjoy myself and can stand a reduced frame rate.

Old Gen, but that's because I haven't played it in a LONG time, and I got a new computer for TRU since then. In the past, whenever I tried next gen on TRL, my computer would crash after a while, especially in Kazakhstan. Now that I have a better computer, I imagine the next time I play it, I'll try next gen.

You may still get the crash in Kazakhstan. The level's buggy in next-gen mode. I was playing on my brother's high end PC and had to turn next-gen off for the bike chase due to instability, flickering textures, and invisible mountains. I turned it back on once I got into the facility though. The game also crashed once in Nepal that I remember, but if you make a manual save at every checkpoint or two then it shouldn't be too annoying since the crashes were fairly infrequent.

"Current-gen" mode is roughly the same as the PS2/Xbox version and "Next-gen" mode is roughly the same as the Xbox 360 mode. I think current-gen looks a bit better than PS2/Xbox while next-gen looks a bit worse than 360 (certain effects got left out of the PC version's next-gen). Gameplay-wise it's identical with the exact same levels and bonuses :)

Fair enough :)
I just wonder though why the next gen games graphically were a little inferior?
Is it because they were more intended for last gen?

I'm betting that the PC version was ported from the Xbox version and then they tacked on the 360's textures as a separate mode and forgot to include things like the wet effect. That's just my guess though :p

But yeah, I think that the PS2 was the base platform and then Crystal made it into a 360 game with shiny new textures while Nixxes ported the game to Xbox, GameCube, and PC.

I like getting achievements because they usually force me to vary my game tactics so I end up enjoying the game more (if left to my own devices, I tend to find one type of attack/strategy/etc. and do it to death :p). The achievements in Legend were ridiculously easy though and didn't really add anything to the game for me. I started another thread discussing the handheld versions of the game (I might get a DS Lite soon and was curious about the DS and GBA versions of Legend) so on impulse I sat down and played Legend today from start to finish in less than 3 hours without even trying to rush. I think I beat all the time trial times as well although I was playing a new game from scratch so I'm not certain of that. At least Underworld's achievements were interesting (not sure about TRA since I haven't got the 360 version of that game).

Some of the Anniversary achievements are beyond my skill, completing Peru without dying once :vlol: I always die in the first of each level.

I heard that if you start a new game and save at every checkpoint, just load if you die and you'll get the achievement when you finish the levels :)

Edit: I mean a manual save and load, not relying on the automatic saving and loading :)

I never got to checkpoints without dying :o :vlol: and those are the times you can save

Ward Dragon

You have to have gotten from one checkpoint to the next at least once in order to progress. If you die you restart at the last checkpoint anyway, so just load your manual save and you end up at the same spot without the game realizing you died :pi:

Lol error of judgment on my part forgetting to save before entering likely to fall areas :o
I do the same on Legend, the achievement isnt the same but I always forget to save after the last checkpoint, I hit just before the next one then die.
