    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.

    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.

It was clearly a darker version and more brutal. If the reboot attempt was to create a very different Lara than games of old while keeping fans endeared I'd say they did it with this trilogy but just barely. Some diehard fans may have a harder time with it but I like the change and how modern it has become. I especially like that they focused on discovery and exploration more than combat. There are those who did not feel the same. To each his own I suppose. All in all, while it wasn't perfect, I think it was a worthy investment as there are way more pros than cons. 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...
