Maxing Out Your Graphics Card With Tomb Raider Legend

Parallax And Other Lighting Effects, Continued

The strong light rays show the graphics possibilities of the 3D engine.

The reflection of the flashlight on the water is spectacularly-rendered in both graphics modes. In Next Gen mode, there are obvious waves moving on the water.

You can see a clear difference with the surfaces of shallow water. In normal mode the water is transparent, and Lara's reflection is visible. When Next Generation Content is activated, the water is milky and opaque. The environment and Lara are both highly reflected on the surface.
