Wasnt expecting it to score higher than the previous ones in the series, so not exactly surpriseing if it ends up in the low 80's.



I'm currently playing Spiderman and Dragon Quest Xi on PS4 in the next time, because both are dream-games! No time for the new Tomb Raider, sry. And in October, Red Dead Redemption 2 will be released, yeah! Its the paradise, but i need more time :)

Thats why.. Sayonara (maybe next year) @tomb raider. edit; the reviews are interesting, Uncharted 4 (93% worldwide) has been rated much better in all important categories.

Game of the Year 2020: Ghost of Tsushima, Persona 5 Royal or The Last of Us 2 ?!

Can’t wait to get stuck into this

Add me if you want but let me know youre from this website

It's were i expected, worse reviews always seem to happen when a series gets a new developer. Still looking forward to playing it myself.



Nothing to see here, move along

But how could they review it without RTX ON???



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

Make sure you note the different versions' Scores...

PC - 81
PS4 - 77
XB1 - 83

Each platform will have different publications. Based on those scores, the average is roughly 8/10, which is very good!



                                                                                                             

yeah I'm updating it now



Interesting to see XB1 6 points higher with only 2 less reviews than PS4. Maybe the PS4 version has bugs or performance issues that aren't present on Xbox?

That will easily add 10 points later on!!!

 

8/10 is not a bad score, not at all, however, I was a huge fan of Tomb Raider back in the 90's (even when they became repetitive...), and I miss the sense of exploration that these new TR games lack, so, just as the last one, I will probably skip this new TR entry.
