Shadow of the Tomb Raider Easy Review
Shadow of the Tomb Raider Easy Review |
Lara’s adventures continue in the last part of the Tomb Raider series, in Shadow of the Tomb Raider. This game is stunningly beautiful, mostly if you can play it in 4K HDR. The jungles, the tombs, the caves, the cities and villages, the characters are all really well done. It’s basically an open-ish World game but the story follows a linear path. The close combat system can be much better but this game isn’t really about that (close combats can be usually avoided anyway by playing stealthily). It’s about adventure, exploring tombs and locations, solving puzzles in ancient places and treasure hunting. Many gamers say that it’s bad that this game is unrealsitic in many ways. ie. Lara can jump and climb to impossible places or can carry guns but you can’t see them on her etc. These are all true but I don’t think it takes any value from the fun factor playing this game. Video games can be / must be unrealistic and of course fun to play. Shadow of the Tomb Raider is definitely a lot of fun to play and it’s a great game.
The cons might be the story, that isn’t very strong and the upgrade system could be a bit better but overall the whole ambient and adventure feeling just overwrite any weakness of the game (and there is only a little weakness).
