    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.

Taking my time and enjoying the sights. It's a great touch to hear native languages and learn about the various artifacts and lore. I'm a fan of both TR and Uncharted, and this scratches the itch very well. Expand

    I just finished it and i enjoyed every aspect of the game.
    Yes it is not a huge improvement over their previous games and that's why they did
    I just finished it and i enjoyed every aspect of the game.
    Yes it is not a huge improvement over their previous games and that's why they did not delay it but still they made some changes here and there which made it an amazing cinematic single player experience!
    ( I don't know if this is right to say it here but i hate seeing people saying that it is like Uncharted...
    You know that Lara existed before Drake, they are both archaeologists searching for treasures,ruins. Of course they have their similarities and yes i am a fan of both games and i still enjoy them!)

    The only thing that i hated was their decision to make the game kinda short (about 12 hours) and make you purchase the Season Pass if you would like more adventures of Lara... Aside from that it deserves every penny, especially if you have an RTX GPU. And believe me, they made a very good job with the performance which makes it run butter smooth!

    I know they did their best to market this game enough with all those trailers but i still think that it could get a bit more recognition from players that enjoy Single Player games...
