    In 2013, Crystal Dynamics presented a Lara Croft grounded in interesting psychology for the first time and setup the beginning of an arc for the character which could have taken this franchise to new heights. Read more

    Were it not for a lack of polish, Shadow of the Tomb Raider would stand right alongside the other action-adventure giants in truly defining the genre. It has a lot of heart, all of the pulsating set pieces that series has become known for and a primal Lara Croft at the height of her powers. Read more

    Throw in the hundreds of collectibles which have not changed in terms of quantity since Rise, and a skill tree that feels overly complex with poisons and explosives and other survival elements that never become a part of the story itself – it’s easy to get lost in the messiness of Shadow of the Tomb...

    Shadow of the Tomb Raider is a good game with a good story. But the game is so damn hard to play on PS4 due to the absolutely atrocious level of input lag the game suffers from. It's a shame because Rise of the Tomb Raider suffered from the same issue on PS4 at launch but was patched about a month... Read more

  2. "A decent-ish finisher to an above average adventure series"

    Great gameplay, fun puzzles and quests as well as an engaging, albeit fairly basic main narrative that keeps you entertained long enough not to ask too many questions of the plot holes. Read more

  3. "Another great addition to the Tomb Raider series"

    Once again, a thoroughly enjoyable thematic experience that makes you feel part of the narrative. Excellent graphics and movement mechanics. The addition of climbing boot crampons made for a cool experience climbing near horizontal cliff faces. Read more

  4. "Amazingly Epic"

    The best instalment in the trilogy. Watch as Lara slowly turns into the Badass legacy she has always been know for! Read more

  5. "Not good enough"

    Didn't feel like a step up from the last tombraider, had no wowing effect like the previous 2. The graphics seemed hazy on a normal ps4. Read more
