    Me too. I watched the film on release day, which had a really good build up, and then dropped off near the end. So I'm looking forward to this game.

    Did you buy the DLC - Baba Yaga: The Temple of the Witch?

    2 Days now... :D

    Looking forward to this one.

    ...Oh, I'm afraid it's chips, as we seem to get lower down the pecking order when food becomes involved. :D

    I'm now about 25% of the way through the game and am really enjoying it.
    If you played them before then the play style is pretty much the same so it's nice and easy to just crack on. The graphics look beautiful and it plays well, but very annoyingly it's locked at 60fps which really annoys me as it feels like I am often running in mud (when not in fact having her run in mud).

    I love the Lara Croft games and this one isn't disappointing so far.

    I'm excited to play this but I've decided to restrain myself until I've played a bit more of other recent purchases. The 60fps lock is a bit of a downer though :(

    The 2013 and 2015 Tomb Raiders work absolutely fine on PC, so pretty safe to assume the same will apply to this one as there is no change in the underlying tech or control mechanics so might as well go for the best version, plus there is some aiming, so mouse control is highly valuable.

    Preferred the last one on PlayStation personally, despite my PC having plenty of power etc, it just felt better on PS4 Pro.

    Got to about 60% through now. Still enjoying it, but to me Lara feels far less of an action explorer, more of someone out to settle a grudge. I don't mind, but it does take away the "Tomb Raider" feeling.
    I do hope than when it goes on to it's next itteration, they take it back to its explorer roots.

    As for my earlier comment about it being locked at 60fps, I sorted this. I had it on Fullscreen, but not exclusive fullscreen. Once I selected Exclusive fullscreen it allowed me to chance the FPS. It's running far smoother now

    So - question about this:
    I really enjoyed Tomb Raider, as well as Rise of the Tomb Raider (The Baba Yaga bit was probably THE best bit in the entire game).
    However, I felt that Rise tended to be "more of the same", especially later in the game.
    To an extent, this was to be expected, and I am often OK with more of the same.
    I bought Rise in the bargain bin, and was somewhat glad I did.
    Am I likely to feel the same about Shadow?
    Edit to clarify somewhat:
    I really enjoyed the puzzling bits (probably why I like Baba Yaga so much), coupled with a bit of action, but found that RotTR was a bit heavy on the combat, low on the fun for me.

    I'm still only 60% of the way through and have encountered several 'tombs' - some of which I couldn't enter at the time as I didn't have the correct equipment. There are base camps, so you can go back later and complete them.

    I have enjoyed the tombs and on this one you get set how hard they are to solve - ie, on the hardest level, you have more to do in order to solve it (you can change this at any time unless you select the hardest level. Choose this and you are stuck with it until the end). There are also side missions that you can attempt if you don't want to carry on straight away with the main mission. These are ok, but it's mostly finding people and listening to what they have to say with a small 'boss' fight at the end.

    There is of course fighting in it, but I don't think it's overdone in this one as I did in the last. I also really enjoyed Baba Yaga, the puzzles are my fav bit.

    I'm glad it's the last one in this current itteration because I don't see what more they can do with it without it being a total rinse and repeat; but this is an excellent send off in my opinion.

    I do have 2 concerns over this iteration normal appears to hold your hand way way too long and too often making normal feel like it should be easy or idiots guide to the game and there is no way to stop it doing it.
    Secondly narratively it is a divergence from the past 2 titles this is clear as its written by a different writer and while it is meant to be the third title in the reboot arc i feel it doesn't marry as well as it should have with the other 2.
    Minor things in general and probably just me but but took the shine out of it for me.

    I'm yet to pick this up. So I'm wondering if I should wait till Xmas and grab it, as I still have lots of games to play.
