Shadow of the Tomb Raider Feels Like More of the Same...And That's OK | IGN

There's a lot more going on beneath the surface, both literally and metaphorically.

Still working through last falls games lol, gonna pick this up on discount a few months after release.

Just trying to think of the many reviews, most likely coming from IGN, who call a game out and give a ridiculous low score for "being samey" or "more or less the same"

It's like Rise of the Tomb Raider V2


They gave Rise a 9/10 surprisingly.

Yeah its OK when its TR.. But for uncharted being even slightly similar was a bas thing! Classic IGN

While I had some problems with Rise Of The Tomb Raider, it was a step in the right direction as regards puzzles and platforming. I had quite a lot of fun with it despite it's awful story and writing (although, Craft Manor marked a decent improvement there). I'll probably get this game but not immediately. I know I'll enjoy it but like most I'm not particularly excited or hyped for it. Wasn't a big fan of how they treated PS owners either (most Tomb Raider fans).


The gameplay had input lag on ps4 too, making it feel sluggish compared to the first TR. It was pretty dissapointing overall i don't get why people think it was so Amazing


That's sad. Can't wait for spiderman and red dead 2

I'm not sure why that is sad. Rise of the Tomb Raider has been one of the best games this generation for me. And really what needs to change or become better? The story was solid, the mechanics are great, the open area approach was awesome, puzzles were good, hunting and gathering was great, graphically awesome, sound awesome, the levelling up was great, etc.

I'm not sure what you are expecting them to innovate here? Not every game genre needs 10 major innovations in order to become better. I haven't seen any Red Dead videos yet, but I did see spider-man, and I didn't see a single innovation that was not from another video game yet. That doesn't make it a bad game at all. Gamers have to quit thinking every new game will bring some epic innovation. Most games this generation have been incremental improvements on previous games by tightening mechanics, merging genres, and improving graphics. Not totally new and innovative things never been done before.


Rise had an absolutely abysmal story, game play had high input lag(on ps4 at least) after the game had already been out a year on the xbox. I didn't find the puzzles that great in rise i expected more after TR 2013 and was left disappointed. I'm still hopeful that shadow can at least have better puzzles, story, and game play. Spider-Man definitely isn't the same thing as previous spidermans if you look up people's impressions after playing
