Exactly. It’s clear as day that they don’t have all the creative freedom they want and still have to stick to some “rules” decided by either SE or CD, or a bit of both. So it’s like they’re making the most out of this situation to try and find a good compromise between pleasing fans and the general public. I just gotta say, I see their efforts, because A LOT of things have considerably improved, plus they mentioned in multiple interviews how time consuming it was to implement the different difficulty branches. Not only that, but one of the producers almost convinced them to forget this idea, and the rest of the team fought to keep it. It says a lot, really.

I understand that this is the final game of an already established trilogy, so you can’t really stray too far from it in a way. I’d like to see what EM could bring us with complete creative freedom, one day.

Agreed, and although I'm vocal in my dislike of the reboot era it does really make me want to go out and support this game a lot more, seeing them listen to what we've been asking for and acting on it. I haven't pre-ordered it because I don't pre-order games, but I will be buying this one very soon after release in the first week.

I hope they get more creative freedom in future too, especially if it's true that the games are going more episodic and standalone going forward. That means they wouldn't have to be so strict sticking to a particular continuity (which might be the plan tbh, blurring the lines between all these different Laras).

Does anyone know if entering stealth mode by the push of a button is still a thing? If I'm not completely imagining things I remember that being a new feature in the very first footage of Shadow we saw back at E3 (?) but I don't think I've seen it in any gameplay that's been released since. :confused:

FINAL THOUGHTS
Instead of daring to experiment in the final reboot trilogy, Eidos Montréal focuses on the new Lara's strengths to finish the story. This decision pays off. Shadow of the Tomb Raider outperforms its predecessor in every respect and adds another dimension: more content, more graves, more puzzles, more story and fewer bangers. Even the secondary characters are more likeable this time, and more than just a means to advance the plot of the game. Only the attached dialogue system bothers me a bit. Here, Eidos Montréal has missed the opportunity to give me as a player the opportunity to form "my personal" Lara in the talks. In the end, however, the game rewards me with an action-packed finale, and all that remains to be said is: Shadow of the Tomb Raider is the playful and narrative highlight of the reboot trilogy - and rightly so.

Yas!! That's better score than IGN US gave to Spider-Man! So happy.
