    Yes I’m a fan of Tomb Raider, but once again I have loved my time with Lara in Shadow of the Tomb Raider. If you’re in my camp, and enjoyed the first two games of this rebooted franchise, then I would highly recommend this experience. In fact, it is the best of the three in terms of of tomb exploration, puzzle interactions, deep storytelling, and action.

    Shadow of the Tomb Raider is definitely darker than its predecessor but that doesn't hurt its awe-inspiring setting, fun stealthy combat, oodles of rewarding collectibles, and suspenseful action that will keep you on the edge of your seat from start to finish.

    Shadow of the Tomb Raider is the perfect conclusion for Lara's origin trilogy. It tells a compelling story about her past, a conspiracy and the Maya apocalypse, offering a whole new world to explore, with jungles, villages, new and lethal tombs and plenty of secondary missions.
  4. On the subject of breathtaking scenery, Shadow of the Tomb Raider is a showcase for what an Xbox One can do.

    Lara Croft still does not make the most coherent decisions (let alone the wisest ones), but at last she shows a bit of that vulnerability that they had shown us, hand in hand with their more visceral aspect.

    Better-crafted platforms and Tombs built around more interesting puzzles, the title unfortunately loses a slight foothold when it comes to telling its story or fully immersing the player.

    Shadow of the Tomb Raider is basically the same game as Rise of theTomb Raider, but in a new environment. This time Lara finds her self in the Peruvian jungle – and it looks absolutely stunning. Unfortunately the graphics are about the only thing new in this game and we wish the gameplay would have been improved as well. But despite it's shortcomings, Shadow of the Tomb Raider has a great entertainment. value.

Since I started to play I try to find elements that could harm the quality of the game and I still can not find it. It is true that the game takes its predecessor as a structure. But Shadow of the Tomb Raider has a new mood, dark and violent, is the most aggressive game in the trilogy. From the initial presentation until now I have no doubt that this is the best game in the trilogy. Expand

    After finishing the game and non reading nothing about the game before, for me it has been the best Tomb Raider and Lara adventure in allAfter finishing the game and non reading nothing about the game before, for me it has been the best Tomb Raider and Lara adventure in all ways: graphics, soundtrack, puzzles and exploration, environment, story, characters, hubs design, Lara's modeling, mechanicals and habilities.

    No innovation or continuity doesn't mean a bad game. I put my critic on what they offer to me not about what I expect from an ideal. It could be better? Of course but what it does is really remarkable and outstanding.

    SCORE: 83/100

    This is a solid game that is fun for anyone that is a fan of this series in particular or the ever-popular action-adventure genre in general.

    It felt a bit empty, there was not enough combat, there was far too much jungle, and the story was just ok. It has nothing on God of War, Spiderman, or even Assassin's Creed Origins. They somehow made some small improvements and nods, but it still didn't feel like enough. Is it a good, fun game? Of course it is.

    This is a good game to get the complete edition for $20. That is worth it. I'll never buy another Tomb Raider for more then twenty bucks.

    Average, more or less the same as previous tomb raider games nothing revolutionary. Would recommend waiting for a price drop before buying.

    A terrible follow up to Rise of the Tomb Raider that forgets every lesson that game learned from the original reboot. The level design isA terrible follow up to Rise of the Tomb Raider that forgets every lesson that game learned from the original reboot. The level design is boring and dull, the game keeps interrupting with cutscenes at the worst times, controls are sluggish (that one is baffling, why didn't they just keep the controls from Rise?) and the art direction is all over the place as if several parts of the same levels had been contracted out to different people without any design guidelines. It honestly feels like Core got their B-team making this, it's the Andromeda of the Tomb Raider series. Expand
