ANOTHER game to add to the “half finished at launch and paid £45 for the privilege” pile.

The finale in the Tomb Raider reboot trilogy arrived this week to an underwhelming reception in the UK.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider's Week One sales are 25% higher than its predecessor's, 2015's Rise of the Tomb Raider. However, Rise was an exclusive to Xbox platforms (at the time), whereas Shadow is a full multi-platform release.

Compared to the first Tomb Raider reboot in 2013, first weeks sales are more than 70% down. Of course, these charts don't factor in digital sales, and digital is understood to be taking a larger percentage of the boxed market compared with five years ago. Nevertheless, it's not a huge week one for Lara Croft. 63% of launch sales came on PS4, whereas Xbox One accounted for the remaining 37%.

Looks like the franchise could do with the 3 year rest minimum and brought back rebooted (either as the Lara of old or something completely different again) next generation.

Considering the film also came out this year though you’d expect the game to be in people’s subconscious a little more.

Saying that, this chart doesn’t include digital. TR also went up against the surprise juggernaut of Spider Man, and I’m sure people noticed the speed at which the last TR dropped in price - all would have played a role. By the time you’ve finished with a big single player title like Spider Man, Red Dead Redemption is also on the horizon.

I’ve started this tonight and it’s really great so far. I’ve just reached the scene after the plane incident and the graphics are stunning though. :wub:

I think I will like this as far as how things are looking. :toot:

I'm playing this now on One X (performance mode) and I'm really enjoying it.
I'm trying to collect as much as I can and playing on normal. I think it's going to take up most of my long weekend :msgreen: .

Beware of two trophies are glitched. If you want to collect 100%, it’s recommend to wait for a patch to fix it.

I’ve just reached the village and it’s really great. :wub:

Not having any lighting issues?

Thanks for the heads up as I was going to go for 100%

Think I have already missed a trophy as the 8 side quest trophy hasn’t popped

The game just launched at the wrong time of the year, they should've released it between June and early August.

Be careful as it didn’t fix the glitches trophies but it did fix the lighting issue and a few things like input lag.

I started this last night and managed to get through a couple of hours straight - I think it's great so far! It looks amazing (playing on xbox one x), and the sound is is outstanding: I have a pretty good surround system set-up, and this really makes the most of it.

The gameplay is more of the same, which is fine by me ( i really enjoyed the last couple) but i understand that for others some new gameplay bits and bobs would have appealed more. I don't mind at all.

So, I'm very happy with it! I'd say (as many reviews seem to) that if you had a good time playing the last couple, you'll really enjoy this.

I called off his players' names as they came marching up the steps behind him....All nice guys. They'll finish last. Nice guys. Finish last.

I may be one of the minority people who prefer this than Rise, but I haven’t completed it yet though. :shifty:

This series has been really disappointing mainly because the first entry was so strong and promising. I may go back and play it sometime, actually, which I can't say for Rise or Shadow.
