Lara’s lat­est in shadow of orig­i­nals

Shadow of the Tomb Raider PS4, Xbox One, PC

The Galloway News - - THE TICKET -

Lara Croft is un­doubt­edly one of the big­gest names in gam­ing but this third ver­sion of the re­booted ad­ven­turer sits in the shadow of its pre­de­ces­sors.

The bizarre plot re­volves around a con­spir­acy the­ory/apoc­a­lypse the­ory and while the stealth se­quences, un­der­wa­ter puz­zles, an­cient ru­ins and crafty en­vi­ron­men­tal ob­sta­cles are the equal of the best of the orig­i­nals, the dread­ful di­a­logue, repet­i­tive ac­tion and un­in­ven­tive de­sign un­der­mines it badly.

Lara is all about ac­tion and ex­plo­ration in spec­tac­u­lar set­tings — and that’s why it’s such a dis­ap­point­ment.
