New, prettier Tomb Raider Legend demo

nVidia releases new demo of Lara's latest adventure, now with lovely 'next-gen' graphics option

Graphics card maker nVidia is offering an updated 1.2 version of the PC Tomb Raider Legend demo, now sporting a sparkly 'next-gen' graphics option that was absent from the previous demo.

Like the last demo, this latest download lets you go hands on with the whole first level of Lara's latest, only now you can sample some flashy graphical effects like upped texture and shadow detail, parallax mapping and other impressive-sounding tech-bits. The demo weighs in at a hefty 503MB and nVidia recommends using a GeForce 7800 or better graphics card to see the full visual-splendour of this demo.

Check out our review for the full verdict on the PC version of Legend.
