Tomb Raider 2013 Absolute First Impressions and Graphics and Gameplay Options, PC HD

As far as I can tell there are no problems with the PC version of Tomb Raider. The options menu is extensive allowing for scaling Tomb Raider to the different systems. I have a nVidia GTX 660 which ran on High at around 80 fps and on the highest setting at around 30 fps. The graphics are fairly impressive, although some parts of the cut scenes aren’t rendered in the engine but are pre-recorded videos.

You can rebind keys. A game pad is supported (ie XBOX 360 controller or similar) by default. Mouse acceleration can be turned off and you can change the sensitivity. VSync can be turned on or off and has a number of different settings. For those that care the game has an inbuilt 3D system. I did not find the FOV slider. Here are two screenshots of the options menus:

Tomb Raider First Impressions

Generally speaking Tomb Raider has received good reviews from other publishers on the XBOX 360 and Playstation 3 version. Tomb Raider is an action puzzle game played in third person. It features different puzzles in dungeons that you have to solve. It also features a QTE (quick time event, mashing buttons etc) system to allow you to get through other parts of the game. In general I like the game so far, but I have only played the first 20 minutes (hence this is called an absolute first impression) as shown in the YouTube video linked below.

    No Problems apart from most Nvidia owners on the 600 series not being able to play the game without crashing every 5 minutes!

      At the time of writing this article this information was not available. On my machine it ran fine without a problem and I am using a 600 series GPU. Thank you for letting me know the problem.
