    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.

    Shadow of the Tomb Raider shifts the franchise's focus more towards exploration - which is a good thing, since it complements Lara Croft's character in a way the more shooting-oriented previous games didn't. The adventure's a bit predictable, but nevertheless a joy to see through to the end, even if an annoying camera and bad input registration drag the experience down at times.

    With Shadow of the Tomb Raider, we get one of the best episodes of the whole franchise. It doesn't intend to revolutionize the formula the reboot put in place in 2013, but it has a quite interesting story and a dashing setting, offers a well balanced experience, and has a huge amount of challenges that will surely please plenty of virtual explorers.

    Shadow of the Tomb Raider shines in exploration, offering stunning scenic views that enrich the pursuit to walk among the greater open world. It's filled with rewarding puzzle platforming tombs that emphasize the return of new and old gameplay mechanics. However, the same can't be said for the story, as Lara's journey is concluded with a tired and tried formula that never reaches the potential it displays in certain cutscenes, despite its promising beginning.

    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.

But the tombs are almost impossible to find. I only got 2 notices of tombs nearby in the main campaign. Had to go back & cheat to find the rest. Campaign by itself without tombs only took about 12 hours. It fits well with the previous entries, but feels more like Uncharted- even has some of exact same moves as Nathan Drake. I'll play it again on Game+. Overall, worth buying if you like action/adventure games. Expand

    really good looking game... unfortunately it is just not much fun... dodgy controls & frustrating platforming... seemingly useless weaponsreally good looking game... unfortunately it is just not much fun... dodgy controls & frustrating platforming... seemingly useless weapons upgrade system make the rpg elements feel tacked-on... dull, somewhat racist story... pretty linear progression... despite the vast, lush jungle setting, the game often feels claustrophobic as opposed to free-to-explore... towns feel like tedious, needless hubs with relatively boring NPCs... underwater is neat, but who really cares about collecting that plant down there... quests & challenge tombs are occasionally interesting but often don't feel rewarding... i had to push myself to see it all through rather than feeling excited about playing it more... it is easy enough to knock out the main quest in a weekend... as much as i wanted to like the new Tomb Raider, i'd have to say that Uncharted 4 & Lost Legacy were both much more enjoyable, rewarding experiences...
