    Shadow of the Tomb Raider is the best game in this trilogy and was well worth the wait. I've been trying to hold myself back with gushing about all the things so I don't spoil it for everyone, but seriously this game is a masterpiece. Yes, there are some things which bothered me while playing but overall the experience was magnificent and should not be missed.

    The new course of the Tomb Raider saga seems to have definitively matured with this chapter: someone could find it superior to Uncharted 4, and it would not be blasphemous.

    This Lara Croft memoir ends in a good way, and I’ll miss this version of Lara more than any of them.

    The stealth mechanics and fun world traversal in Shadow of the Tomb Raider make it a great game. Whether Lara is smothering herself in mud to shank enemies and return to the shadows, rappelling down into gloomy caves, or blasting creatures with her powerful shotgun, this game has a grimy edge that makes it well worth playing.

    Shadow of the Tomb Raider is Lara’s most dangerous journey yet, but also her best. Action-adventure aficionados and Tomb Raider fans alike shouldn’t hesitate to check this one out.

    Lara Croft’s final adventure in her revival trilogy is easily her weakest yet. Shadow of the Tomb Raider’s story fails to critique the heroine in the many ways it attempts, while aging gameplay mechanics and troublesome new additions undercut deeply satisfying exploration and an exquisite visual presentation.

    As a Tomb Raider game, as a coherent game in general, and as a narrative experience, Shadow of the Tomb Raider is a startling fall from grace. A severe disappointment in a series that was previously going strong, and a sign that this version of Lara Croft might need to retire.

    The best Tomb Raider in the series. PS4 Pro version shines with beautiful details and crisp graphics. If you enjoy Indian Jones movies andThe best Tomb Raider in the series. PS4 Pro version shines with beautiful details and crisp graphics. If you enjoy Indian Jones movies and games like Uncharted and never had opportuinty to play Tomb Raider then now is the time to do it. The game sets dark , sinister tone right from the beginning. I really enjoy the game being set in south America. Mayan culture is exciting and it is beautifully depicted through out the game. Many puzzles, great combat , interesting story. This is really good game. Expand

    I had my difficulties catching up with the story but eventually I did and thought it was too shallow. I'm used to more character developmentI had my difficulties catching up with the story but eventually I did and thought it was too shallow. I'm used to more character development from the previous Tomb Raider games. Nonetheless, this title brings in amazing gameplay, a good amount of riddles and tombs also a few amusing side quests. Whoever liked the previous titles is certainly going to enjoy this one. For everyone else: give it a try, it's an awesome game. Expand

    I really love the Square Enix Tomb Raider games, but I feel as if Shadow of the Tomb Raider fell short. While I welcome the new characterI really love the Square Enix Tomb Raider games, but I feel as if Shadow of the Tomb Raider fell short. While I welcome the new character arcs and interactions between Lara, Jonah, and other main characters, I feel as if the game pacing is odd and the amount of content, particularly after Rise of the Tomb Raider, fell short of my expectations. The ending of Lara's origin story seemed anticlimactic. I loved having more tombs to explore and utilizing my gear more, as well as the large, open areas (Kuwak Yaku and Paititi). The setting was great and I loved being able to have characters speak in native languages. However, the number of challenges, side missions, and combat (Why am I spending money and resources on weapons I'll never use!) seem to be lacking. Lara's hints during puzzles on Normal mode were excruciating - (YES LARA, I KNOW YOU NEED TO GET TO MIRROR 3, I'M JUST EXPLORING) but I didn't want to change the difficulty because I want to get all the achievements for the different difficulty. It seems excessive. I also hated the water caverns (so anxiety inducing!) but I know that is a nitpicky thing and I'm not letting that affect my score.

    Overall it is a fun action adventure game. I liked it! I enjoyed myself while playing it! But it is not free of criticism and problems.

    I am going to give it a generous 6. Here is why..
    1: Common for all these games is that the world Lara finds herself in, i have a hard time
    I am going to give it a generous 6. Here is why..
    1: Common for all these games is that the world Lara finds herself in, i have a hard time trying to feel the scenery properly. Although beautiful, all games seems to much set in a fantasy fictitious world. In Uncharted to compare with, you know what part of the world you are trekking trough, In Tomb Raider you are not. I think this is a thing with Japanese produced game, especially like Square who is a pioneer in making fantasy worlds. They have a hard time creating something authentic on that real level.
    2: The game plays too nice to you. Its rolling out the red carpet for you and off you go. The game pretty much TELLS you constantly where to go, what to do, and what to press. Just dont bother playing this game on easy, because it is. Crank that difficulty up from the start
    3: In terms of content, new features and other stuff, it has little. It borrows so much from the previous two games that it is scary. This game is falling hard into the Ubisoft/ Assassins Creed franchise where things are much of the same, just different packaged together.
    The Instincts feature should have been removed. I think i pressed L3 about fifty thousand times while playing this trough. You get that dependent on it that you feel like cheating each time you press that L3. It totally breaks fluidity of the game and you get too addictive to use it..
    4: Like the locations. The story also feels distant. And is not really that interesting. Come on, you enter a populated hidden city deep in the bush and everybody speaks perfect english? I lived in South America for a year and i met two people who could speak english.
    5 Luckily this is the final game in this trilogy that wraps up the early years of Lara´s career. It needs to end now!

    So what is good?
    Well, graphics are gorgeous, and there finally is more Tombs to raid, But boy do the rewards really sucks. but none of them are that challenging really. I always wanted this game to pay some more focus to what Lara is known for and that is raiding tombs.. It is the title of the damn game anyway.
    Controls are good, Maybe too much auto assisted.

    Overall, i think this game needs a new direction, possibly a new developer. I think Square has exhausted this franchise enough.. Square Enix, who is known for RPG and Fantasy games, has a hard time authenticating this franchise. To me all three games has provided me with plenty adventure, but i feel that they all are set in a world i have a hard time to feel and attach myself too.
    After three games in, they have not developed so much in terms of new features, movements, design, story and gameplay. It feels rehashed now and its time to end it. Pass on the torch and start something else.
    I did not bother with a New Game Plus.. You play this game once, collect the **** for achievements and move on.
