The cutscene cinematics and in-game footage are beautiful (Lara has certainly aged well), the narrative is engaging, the environment and movement mechanics encourages exploration, customisation abounds (skill-tree and weapon modification), and the puzzles are creative. If you liked Rise of the Tomb Raider, you will like this game. If you’re new to the Tomb Raider franchise, you can look to Uncharted as a similar experience. There is a lot to love here. If the plot stays strong and the difficulty curve is right, Square Enix and Eidos Montreal are on to another winner."
