Welcome to the Jungle
This game is gorgeous. Gorgeous. The opening of Rise Of The Tomb Raider showed off its astonishing lighting engine with a section involving a fancy explorer’s glow stick, and it worked wonders in making you stop, stare and appreciate everything.
Shadow does that with, well, everything. Honestly, we spend the first ten minutes of our demo gawping at NPC s, the texture on Lara’s poncho, her dented, worn new machete… this game won’t stop flirting with your eyes.
