I got this in September with Dragon Quest but because of DQ, I waited so long to play it! I do enjoy the story a bit more then Rise of the Tomb Raider. I liked how tombs were handled in this game more then previous installments though. I hope we get to see more exploration/puzzle then combat in next installments but the combat system is pretty robust and is build upon the pillars put down in the last 2 games. I am currently on my 3rd playthrough trying to get through the difficulties. The different options for this provide a lot of replay and challenge. Also at one point will she finally be a “tomb raider”. lol. My one complaint in relation to DLC though (which will be listed separately), is that the cutscenes are the same regardless of how far in the game you are. So if you do stuff post game, the villain you KILLED is suddenly back and talking to you. At least make DLC quests time sensitive in the game so things don’t appear out of whack.
