So i just freshly finished the game.
Boy does it take some time to sort my thoughts trough on this game...probably write a lengthy review mainly for myself to get this all out, we will see.

For now i will say that i really enjoyed the game despite it stumbling and feeling really a bit more unpolished then the previous ones.
It shows a fantastic direction for the series if they can continue on that path, get a bit more creative freedom and more time to polish it all up.
Give them a new engine and let them rework the game from ground up in terms of the gameplay...and it can become really something else.

Having said that...the hell was up with them?
The closer you get to the games ending, the more unpolished the game design overall felt.
Somehow the game doesnt click on more noticeable aspects, the dominguez bossfight or the pacing of the final 10 minutes.

I really loved the idea that Lara isnt in the middle of the battle and that it is shown from her point of view instead of being fully in there...that gave it a cool look.
The whole swimming section look absolutly stunning.

Also Crimson fire had a damn cool design...btw what happened to her? The end felt a bit rushed there.

When people said rourkes and dominguez death would be anticlimatic, i was expecting the worst...but it wasnt, just again the fandom being drama queens.

Rourkes was quite okay if the cinematic team wouldnt have slept.
It was shown as if hencheman 7 gets killed in some throwaway cutscene.
Really weak done, but better then the helicopter thing i thought was his end.
Rourke was useless from beginning to the end, he did nothing important and was not in any kind of way established.
He is number 2 of trinity? Okay...so? Its one of the things were you feel like he was cut and reduced from his inital role...i dont know.

The dominguez boss fight was very generic and unbalanced and made less fun the longer it gone.
The storywise idea was interesting and fit the narrative.
It was well done in terms of Dominguez as the obsessed guy who wants to protect his home in a missguided way.
But it sucked in terms of Dominguez the trinity leader, the man who killed Laras father.
They never made any attempt to either tell us more about Trinity or Dominguez to really feel something.
With Konstantin they did that at least a bit...here was nothing.
And i dont understand how this can happen because the writing overall is absolutly on point in terms of making sense as much as it needed.

But thats that for now, overall i really liked the adventure part of the story with patiti, the box, the dagger, i liked the characters and i liked the subtile writing they added to flesh out small details in Lara.

As the final of an Origins trilogy it would actually not have been too bad, if the story would have focused more on Lara herself.
The ending was nicely done however and finished a enjoyable but faulty origins story for the character.

The after credits were a nice little tease for what could come next.
I havent watched the original but im really fine with the one we got.
You get your classic teases with a very obvious winston cameo, the dinosaur and all the other stuff...it was really nice.

The final look Lara gives into the "camera" opens up the possibility for so much in the future for the character.

I will need to gather my thoughts, start New Game Plus and think about this all...but i already know that i had a lot of fun with this game, that i see incredible potential for the future of the series and that i did not regret one second the time i waited for it, the money i spent on it, the time i already have put in and the praise i will give it...and the criticism.
