This Game is still a no-buy because Denuvo still has not been removed after so long. I don't buy Denuvo infested Games no matter the price and if I get them for free I instantly put them into Quarantine till it has been removed.

Solid entry. Graphics are amazing. Story is not as good as Rise or the Reboot but still okay. The openworldish sections bloat the game a bit but still enjoyable. Lara looks a bit different which some might not like.

I liked the story, although the cutscenes are a little long for my taste. Also I have restarted the game at least 2-3 times due to bugs and glitches. Specifically there is a side quest that, if you were as unlucky as me, and haven't saved before starting it, you cannot complete it. The developers have not addressed the issue yet after so long. I liked the new Rambo style stealth kills. Puzzles were on the easy side.

This is for sure my favorite tomb raider game since the reboot, on a good pc it looks amazing, the story and voice acting are good, the dlc is not fantastic but it's ok. The game is worth the price when on sale.

It's a good ending to the trilogy and I liked the challenge tombs a lot, the game is fun to play and explore the graphics are top-notch and you can easily clock 25+ hours with a nice story and plenty of side missions it's a must if you liked the previous two entries. I must say there are some minor bugs but never game-breaking and some people wouldn't even notice them.

Crystal Dynamics keeps refining their formula in this 3rd title since the Tomb Raider reboot. With familiar controls and new vistas, it feels great to play as Lara once again as she fights against Trinity. Great graphics and gameplay.

It's just another rebooted Tomb Raider game with everything you would expect from one of these. Ultimately it's ok, if you had fun with RotTR and TR2013 go ahead and buy it. Don't hope for any development of Lara as a character though, she's still stuck back in 2013 where lots of talking about feelings, lots of "I'm sorry" and even a cry are to be expected. /sigh
