Default The most breathtaking location in previous and next gen

What is, in your opinion, the most beautiful and breathtaking location in the previous generation version of the game? And in the next generation version?

I've recently played Legend on PS2 and I was amazed by the graphics of Nepal: the majestic mountains in the distance, the reflexes on the surface of ice, the appearance of the water, the effect of depth of field, the floor made of transparent ice. It looked beautiful even in the previous generation version! So I choose Nepal for the previous gen.

Thumbs up

Nepal and Croft Manor, I also really loved Japans Rooftops and Kazakhstans outside Areas, Peru was my least favorite in this context, the area looks so dried out, I'd say both for previous and Next Generations the locations I listed were absolutely stunning, I'll expect a lot of people to mention Ghana here tho

I think so too

Ghana is just one of those opening sequences right from the start that is just breathtaking, as once you reach the waterfall area, you are overwhelmed by the scenery and you wonder 'what do you do now, where do you go?'

I just think Legend has fantastic visuals, plus when the background music is added makes its so atmospheric in each level. Only levels I thought with rather boring and repeating scenery were the bike chases, but the action makes up for it.

Ghana...is so visual

You will like this outside looking in picture that I took, and spotting Lara in the picture is like
'wheres Waldo?'

There is a lot of beauty in Nepal and a lot of icy danger
