    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 the perfect closure to a trilogy that has only improved title after title.

    Shadow of the Tomb Raider is more of the same Tomb Raider experience we’ve known since 2013, and that’s precisely why you should be making the trek to Paititi.

    Shadow of the Tomb Raider is a heavy experience. Lara has grown up over the last few years and we have had a chance to watch her mature. Some may not like the person she has grown into but she is definitely not the victim she once was when she fell off the boat. Shadow deals with dark subjects but does a nice job of interspersing some scenes to try and lighten the mood, a favorite of mine involves a young Lara in Stark Manor. For those that don’t like the turn the story has taken the gameplay is still fantastic. The exploration is as good as it has ever been and the Tombs feel even more rewarding than they ever have. If you’ve enjoyed the first two Tomb Raiders there is even more to like in Shadow.

    It’s a very solid game, lacking any surprises or a wow factor, but boasting outstanding level design, very satisfying exploration and beautiful graphics. [11/2018, p.68]

    Few games manage to pipe so many jaw-dropping sights into your eyeballs and even fewer deliver such complex, enjoyable puzzles and traversal challenges. Shadow of the Tomb Raider does all of this and more, its exhilarating predatory combat the icing on the cake.

    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

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Although I loved the entire trilogy, Shadow of the Tomb Raider closes the franchise in a sort of disappointing fashion. The jungle environment is the best setting of all the tomb raider games is utilised poorly and really only the first third of the game was interesting as you were really invested in making it out of the jungle alive with hungry jaguars. Lara Croft caused a chain of disasters but you were only invested in the first disaster of the tsunami but the game forgot to show Lara Croft fighting a volcano or an earthquake which would of made the game awesome, and once again why did they not show LARA'S FREAKIN' DOUBLE PISTOLS IN THE FINAL GAME! What a wasted opportunity!!!!. However this game gets high marks on its combat system which is polished to perfection and the beautiful scenery. This game is just like Batman Arkham Knight closing the trilogy of with a certainly good game but in a disappointing fashion. Expand

    The most disappointing game of the year.
    First game is good, but Shadow of the tomb raider just so bad.
