Another over cluttered mess, even more so than RoTR it seems. They really should have backed off the ubisoft filler and left it light like the first game, that was just the right balance for a semi open world, hub map game.



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.

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?
