Forums - Gaming Discussion - Shadow of the Tomb Raider Review Thread - Meta PC/PS4/XB1 81/78/83

Considering the bulk of the scores are on the PS4 then it's basically a 80 to sub-80 game. Not bad, but will probably wait for a discount since I have some games to clear first. Still I liked the previous 2 TR, if it follows same line I'll have a good time in this as well.

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?

Not really, it just means that Xbox exclusive publications liked it more than the PS4 exclusive publications.

To say nothing for the number of reviews themselves. 36 for PS4 and only 10 for XBO. Both of these play a role in making meta-score comparisons of multi-plat games a nearly pointless endeavor. Also, for no particular reason, Uncharted has always been better than Tomb Raider.

It's PC that has 10, XB1 has 38 right now, same as PS4.

It was a typo on the OP- I had accidentally listed Xbox with 10 reviews.  It's been fixed

Umm..both PS4 and Xbox have 37 reviews each. PC has 10 reviews. So the game is probably 80 on  the dot, or even slightly above due to the pc scores.



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

The previous two were decent and so far this one hasn't really put me off from buying it (apart from the stupid tacked on RTX focus). I'll probably pick it up later on this year after Just Cause 4.

That said, it is interesting to see how timed exclusivity of one game can create a long term grudge against the people behind/publishing the game, as well as going by one consoles score as if everyone thinks the same of the game on all platforms (it really doesn't).

I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks the main reason the PS4 version meta'd 6 points lower than XB1 with the same number of reviews is because the PS4 exclusive publications are still salty about Rise being timed. If you disregard those salty PS4 exclusive reviews, the average across all platforms is a point or two above 80, which really isn't bad at all.

I was going by the wrong info on OP =p

 

But since the game haven't finished reviews yet I'll keep it at 80 round until then =p not that 79 to 81 would make any real difference.

It's good that I'm not the only one who came to that conclusion.

People were generally high on the reboot, and then for some reason hated rise, even though they were so similar, and the gameplay in rise was objectively an improvement.

Then people turned on the reboot too, and acted as if they hated it from the start. The 6-point difference between PS4/XB1 isnt a coincidence

It's all good :)

Yeah, you're right, not as if 1 point above or below makes a huge difference.
