Review Showcase
Shadow of the Tomb Raider is a fresh take on the modern Lara Croft experience. Unlike previous modern entries in the series, Shadow of the Tomb Raider is designed to explore the more human side of Lara and how she handles different problems in different situations. As for the setting, Shadow of the Tomb Raider is set in the deep jungles of South America, a hospitable, unforgiving landscape full of danger and awe.

Gameplay wise, Shadow of the Tomb Raider takes a decent step back from full-on gun combat and raw grit, a far-cry from previous titles. There are still plenty of shoot and cover segments in the game but the game is more focused on storytelling and stealth mechanics this time around. Of course, you still have the option to play the game as you so choose. Whether it’s all guns blazing or taking out your enemies one by one, you can do it. With the launch of Rise of the Tomb Raider, we saw a significant increase in optional tombs that allowed players find hidden treasures and claim unique rewards. Shadow of the Tomb Raider takes this experience and expands upon it, ten-fold. There are more tombs than ever before, all with unique mechanics, terrain traversal and puzzles to explore.

The game does an extremely good job at conveying scale and the possibility of exportation with cutting edge graphics as well as extreme environment and character model detail that rivals that of Naughty Dog’s Uncharted 4. Performance wise, Shadow of the Tomb Raider runs reasonably well for both low end and high end machines and scales accordingly to desired resolutions. With my current configuration, a GTX 1080 can run the game at 3840 x 2160 at a locked 30FPS and 60FPS at 2560 x 1440. Due to this balanced scalability, I strongly believe that Shadow of the Tomb Raider will be a notable benchmark for years to come when measuring GPU performance.

All in all, Shadow of the Tomb Raider is a great game, a great story and a great benchmark. I highly recommend this game to anyone and everyone who enjoys the series or for those just getting into the Tomb Raider lore.
