Default Shadow of the Tomb Raider reviews

Hmm, mixed signals. Reading between the lines, this sounds pretty underwhelming overall.

I tend to trust Gamespot reviews for AAA games when they're "negative" - and 6/10 isn't the kind of score you want them to give a game like this.

Oh well, too many games around anyway.

I'm sure it's decent. I've seen a couple of reviews, and it seems the like the most frequent complaint is that it's just more of the same. Which I expected. I'm also not very hyped for it, even though I pre-ordered it. And not really sure why.

But yeah, the rest of the year is packed with quite big new releases. Spiderman and Red Dead Redemption 2 especially.

Thank you for linking that review!

His description of the underwater areas just renewed my interest in the game quite a bit

Here, too. Plus that gives the Shader Gods of 3D Vision a chance to make the game work better with my 3D glasses - though the last one actually worked nicely out of the box. The Tomb Raider games are all far better when that rope bridge REALLY looks high!

I don't trust them. But that doesn't matter.
It's Xbone review. They had problems with mushrooms. Posted it somewhere already.
Basically that means: buy the game on PC and play with K+M.

Funny article in PC Gamer regarding the new photo mode that let you turn Lara's grim frown upside down.

Streaming is a bad sign.

For this site, it is not. This site is enamoured with products designed to provide for streamers'needs so a product that is streamed is a product likely to please this site.

I don't think this site has anything with pornography.

No. It has to do with streamers needs though. Because what products streamers need to run their job, this site loves and promotes.

This game is apparently now offering free trial. Apparently means not really, not yet.

In my case it's the bad release date. I can't find time to play it, will buy it in the future. Free trial won't help it.
