Hello :)

:vlol: are you serious? Have you played TR1? No offense or anything...

Sorry, I just think back and compare TR1 to Legend in my mind and Legend does not live up to the 'legend' TR1 has.. because it is not as vast.

The original TR made you feel like a little bug in a huge world... and it had jumpy moments too. I remember being afraid to go around corners, I miss that. I feel way too safe and way too limited in TRL.

*pouts*

EDIT: And I think the environments are comparable, honestly, they both look great. I won't compare the character models because I think Oblivion is going for something more human-like, whereas Lara is more like a charicature.

Actually... no i didnt find it that vast... i mean of course there were alot bigger levels in the other TR's especially TR2 & TR3 but still im talking about VAST as in miles and miles of running.. which dosnt seem very TR-ish to me... maybe i should word myself better next time... sorry about that :)

Hmm, i'd say they are both good, Lara looks alot more human now compared to what she used to look like, but still at the same time she still looks a bit like a cartoon though, in my opinion anyway.

Obviously this Oblivion game is looking at a more realistic approach, so the guy looks way more human.

And i dont really see the difference between the environments, they look as good as each other in my opinion.

What's it being too vast and un-TR'ish got to do with the graphics? :confused:

They're both next-gen games and both have extreme merits in places. When you compare some of the forest shots to some legend shots, Oblivion usually triumphs, however I'm sure there's aspects of legend that triumph over Oblivion!

Awww, if only I could take some pics of my girl, Ting Gladadriel, but I play on Xbox 360! Anyway, Here's a short description: Race: Wood Elf, Birthsign: The Ritual and Class: Adventurer! (A mix of what I thought was good to know!)
