Top critical review
Much smaller than previous TR games
7 October 2018
There are a couple of new things Lara can do but it's basically the same, which isn't a problem. There's still the odd frustrating control mechanism where Lara jumps off a ladder and falls to her doom instead of climbing it.
The biggest issue is that this game is SMALL. In story mode there's barely five hours' gameplay. It's far more about jumping, climbing and swimming than the combat. I really miss the lack of stealth takedown opportunities compared to the previous game.
The challenge tombs are good if you like puzzles, which I do. plenty of side missions also. Meh.
I just want a longer story and more people to kill along the way. And this game is a let-down in that area. I much preferred Rise of the Tomb Raider.
