I think most difference is on Lara. Look at that shotgun shadow on her. And lighting affects her body much more overall.

Otherwise i don't really see any difference. Same resolution textures and lightmaps were used. No other fancy shaders or anything.

Basically Angel of Darkness used more effects.. specular map, bump mapping, better shadow casting, etc. Anniversary looks very bland, not the best engine used for a 10 year remake, to show off graphics progression.
Thanks to this i was actually able to finish the game using a Geforce 4 MX440 GPU, released in 2002.

I agree that the most profound difference is the change in Lara's model (probably upscaled to HD resolution? More porygons used? Something like that has been done... also her face and her eyes' color is different) Another change was in water color, which they made more realistic in the PS3 (and XBOX360) version.

Yeah Lara's model has more polygons and water surfaces have physics that react to the in-game models.
