“As a final blowoff to the Trinity saga, I couldn’t help but walk away feeling that the resolution to the story and to Lara Croft’s character could have been so much better. But in terms of a pure “Tomb Raider” game, Shadow of the Tomb Raider is everything a bold explorer could ask for, giving players a vast jungle to explore and daring them to master it.”

“Raiding ancient tombs and exploring dense environments is still outstanding in Lara’s latest, but the mechanics of the reboot series are getting as rough and unpredictable as the terrain.”
