GSY Video PS4 Xbox One PC

Lara Corft keeps getting new content as a new DLC was released this week for Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Since we've recently acquired a GTX 2080 Ti, we've put it to good use to record some 4K gameplay of the new areas in 60 fps. Enjoy!

This is by far the weakest of the modern trilogy. However, it does has a lot of exploration, the problem is that there`s not many locations. About 50% or maybe even more of the collectibles are in Paititi, which has an incredible design level, but not enough to warrant so much time in it. They tried to Assassin`s Creed it and it made the game much worse.

Also, you stay in Paititi for 50% of the game when you 100% it, if my memory isn`t failing me. That and a few technical regressions when compared to Rise of the Tomb Raider made this the worst entry in the trilogy. It`s still a very good game, but a regression when compared with the last two.

It's a good looking game, but it's just so dull, lifeless, and devoid of any sexuality. This game might as well be the upcoming Captain Marvel.

The problem shadow had was that they ripped out the combat that is clearly vital to this new form of tomb raider. The core gameplay doesn't really make for interesting exploration because everything is painfully automated so to lean on it in such a heavy way doesn't work. New raider is a shooter first and foremost and you can't just take most of it away and expect what's left to hold up.

Then on top of that, the puzzles are too obvious and the "tombs" (feels a bit too generous calling them that) aren't incorporated into the core experience and still just feel like short lived side activities. Game was the worst of the 3 and I never thought that would be the case after rise ended up being so disappointing.

    Seth sry my mistake, ye i wanted to say that they are huge fans of first parties and ready to move on and wait ages for eventual pc port. (2 Days ago)

  • KORNdog

    KORNdog there are people out there who are going to wait for PS5 before playing last of us 2. but even that sort of wait sounds far too excruciating to me. (2 Days ago)

  • KORNdog

    KORNdog @Seth: i mean, it's a viable option, but if you were a big fan of sony exclusives to begin with you'd need to have an insane amount of patience to wait 3 years to play it on PC (2 Days ago)

  • Seth

    Seth @KORNdog: yeah i don't see this happen anytime soon. it's why i find funny some people suddenly say ''i'm done, after 25 years with ps, moving to pc''. (2 Days ago)
