    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 comes back for the last chapter of the trilogy. Shadow of the Tomb Raider is a wonderful action-adventure, but it lacks the courage to reach the top of the genre.

    Shadow of the Tomb Raider is a sequel that does a lot well, although its biggest detriment is how safely the developers seemed to play it.

    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.

The environments are gigantic, you actually feel like you could get lost in the jungle. Every tree has an animal attached to it, there's so much life in the jungle and it looks amazing, the graphics unlike anything else on Xbox One X. The tombs are epic and beautiful, I took about 50 screenshots over the course of the campaign. I completed the game in one day, I didn't want to stop playing and I already want to start over again which I will do tonight. Seeing is believing 9.5/10 Expand

Esta vez busca diferenciarse más de la saga de Uncharted de la cual esta estigmatizada con su primer juego del 2013. En esta ocasión la bella Lara Croft es más letal mostrando como se convierte en la heroína que se recuerda de los juegos de hace veinte años. Aunque, la aventura se desarrolla en Latinoamérica. Que es una forma de rememorar lo de las primeras aventuras de la Lara Croft clásica. Se observa que hay NPC´s que hablan en idioma de la región, ya sea castellano o quechua por ejemplo. Otro aspecto que resalta más es la opción de ajustar la dificultad de la historia, los puzles, los enfrentamientos, y la exploración. Esto hace que el juego pueda ser más versátil.

    En la jugabilidad se prioriza el sigilo. Aunque, pudo mejorar en las misiones secundarias y no poner las misiones de recadero, pero es un placer jugar con Lara.

    In English
    The continuation of Tomb Raider is a good game. This time it seeks to differentiate itself from the Uncharted saga of which it is stigmatized with its first game of 2013. This time the beautiful Lara Croft is more lethal showing how she becomes the heroine that is remembered from the games of twenty years ago. Although, the adventure takes place in Latin America. This is a way of recalling the first adventures of the classic Lara Croft. It is observed that there are NPCs that speak in the language of the region, be it Spanish or Quechua for example. Another aspect that stands out more is the option to adjust the difficulty of the story, the puzzles, the confrontations, and the exploration. This makes the game more versatile.

    In the gameplay, stealth is prioritized. Although, it could improve in the secondary missions and not to put the missions of messenger, but it is a pleasure to play with Lara.

    Shadow of the Tomb Raider is final part in new Tomb Raider trilogy as well continuation to both previous installments. You can even equipShadow of the Tomb Raider is final part in new Tomb Raider trilogy as well continuation to both previous installments. You can even equip outfits from all old Tomb Raiders if you played them on Steam. Game looks really nice especially during night times. Runs without any major glitches, bugs or FPS drops. Optimization is very good. There are some voice problems in some cut scenes. Where sound cut off for a second or two. Story take place in South America jungle and ancient Mayan ruins, tombs. This is the best scenario for Indiana Jones like games in my opinion. Rise of the Tomb Raider was a solid game but snow and cold atmosphere was inferior to brutal tropical, jungle environment. It just looks great. Game is brutal and enemies ruthless. There are many encounters where you will struggle to play stealth or survive. Tombs, cliffs, underwater tunnels and caves are much better made than in previous games. Overall the best Tomb Raider game so far. Expand

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