Forums - Gaming Discussion - Shadow of the Tomb Raider gets new trailer - and some disappointing previews

Not really excited for this after just finishing Rise. For TR 1, gameplay shined in spite of a terrible story and acting, but with Rise, the gameplay felt way too familiar and similar to TR 1. Story was a little better in Rise, but not enough to make it better than a 7/10.

What the hell has happened to this forum? Please tell me it's a glitch and not a new layout.



 

The PS5 Exists. 


I like the reboot and rise, but seems like the 3rd will be a turd.

2013 tomb raider was good as it followed the uncharted model. I got it free with ps plus and enjoyed it. That was enough TR for me though. Haven't bought the new one and won't be buying this one. The series needs a break.



I'm just annoyed that were still in the origin story. This is not sounding good

why can't it be like Uncharted story-wise?

(I know, I know, shut up)

One of the last games I've played on both PS4 AND XBO is RotTR. I even took a break from GoW to play it. This Shadow is going to be one of my favorite games of the year, if not GotY. I've already made up my mind.

I play/own it all on all three (PC/PS4/1X)! I win!



                                                                                                                                                           

"However if this hour is representative of the rest of the game then go in expecting a linear rollercoaster with some nice views and a score somewhere in the 50s or 60s from PC Gamer."

Lol, if only PC Gamer reviewed the Uncharted games.

I'm a bit confused. Some of the complaints are being considered as new ... but ... they seemed to be a problem in Rise of the Tomb Raider as well? Grimdark and always taking itself seriously? That was the same with Rise of the Tomb Raider and I don't think it was different for the original reboot game either. Lara being one note and uninteresting? That was DEFINITELY true in ROTTR. I haven't played the original game but it's weird that they're acting like there's some tonal shift. The only complaint I somewhat get is that it's a tonal shift to have her not want to kill people in the first two games but then be fine with killing in this game. However I don't know if that's really a "tonal shift", it's a trilogy origin story, there was obviously giong to be some progression that made her more violent. 

Honestly this just sounds like the same problems that ROTR (and I assume 2013) had. Nothing new. I kind of hope Crystal Dynamics delays the game, i'm actually rather surprised they didn't sort out these issues by now.
