    It most likely hasn't aged to well overtime. Though that was the best game in the series really so i guess if you like tomb raider you'll like that. Most likey will have far worst graphics then the psx verison.

    Sometimes graphics maybe badin a game but the game itself may surpase the fact that they are bad I.E how many times have you played an atari 2600?graphics, bad but gameplay,excellent

    I'm not saying the graphic are bad. I was just trying to tell you that the playstaion version would most likely have better graphics seeing as it was better at handling 3d games.

    At the time it was released I was really into this game. I haven't played it in a while but I think it would still be fun. Just remember early 3D games have some of the worst camera angles and can be frustrating. I've never played the Saturn version but I'm sure its not that different from the PS version.

    Being the Sega whore that I am I prefer to play the Saturn version over the PSX. Graphics aside it is still a fun game to pick up and play every now and then. I recommend it.

    The Saturn version loads shorter and has less clipping problems than the PSX version, though it doesn't look as good, some Special Effects had to be left out of the Saturn Version

    i agree the saturn version didnt look as nice as the psx but the saturn version ran smoother, indeed less loading times, and had less bugs

    i've played em both, for me it comes down to control preference. in my case i prefer the dual shock for 3-D gaming, even over the sega nights 3-d controller and definatley over the standard saturn controller. either way the graphics wont blow you away, it wasnt for several games that lara got smooth moves and curves. i always felt this series was a little too light on the action and too heavy on puzzles.
