GOTW: Shadow of the Tomb Raider

Shadow of the Tomb Raider is the third game in the 2000s series of the Tomb Raider games. Though there are many games in this series from the 1990s to now, this is its own 2000s version. This version has 3 games: Tomb Raider, Rise of the Tomb Raider, and Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Created just like the games before it, this is a third-person, action adventure video game. It can only be played as a single player. Shadow of the Tomb Raider is set to release on September 14, 2018 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Microsoft Windows. With it set to release in only a month, most games would have a lot more hype than this one does. Since the release of Tomb Raider (The 2013 release), the hype of this series has lowered. This is exactly what happened with the original three games of the 90s as well. Going with the trend, this may be the last game in the 2000s series due to low budgets and low publicity.

“Experience Lara Croft’s defining moment as she becomes the Tomb Raider. In Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Lara must master a deadly jungle, overcome terrifying tombs, and persevere through her darkest hour. As she races to save the world from a Maya apocalypse, Lara will ultimately be forged into the Tomb Raider she is destined to be”(Square Enix). The game's description is very similar to the two games before it. This game is supposed to go off the other two, but it seems to be copying them almost. The game will probably be pretty decent, but it's not going to be much of a new experience for gamers that enjoyed and/or played the others.

This game has won no awards as of this moment.

I give this game a 5 out of 10. It’s very repetitive and has a boring plot. I only recommend it to the die-hard Tomb Raider fans.
