Honestly I was fine with both. Rise was a nice middle ground whereas Shadow went full on explorer mode.
That's interesting!
I prefer Shadow, it would just need a replayable mode (like Endurance or something else) and a full Croft Manor level like blood ties.

Honestly, I prefer Shadow's ratio of Combat:Exploration/Puzzles. Rise still felt too much to me but more than that, the combat encounters felt tedious, I didn't find any enjoyment in them at all. I think Shadow had a little more variety to its combat encounters, with the increase in stealth options and whatnot, which I appreciated.

It's funny that Rise sold close to nothing on Xbox compared to PlayStation, the exclusive platform they chose for the game. That tells you how bad these people are at making decisions.

Endurance mode would instantly make me like Shadow more than Rise.

The increase in stealth options definitely helped. Although I can understand people that took a problem with the fact that we had more combat maneuvers than actual combat.

That's very far-fetched considering Playstation marketed the game a lot better than Xbox, the company they ended up signing the deal with. Microsoft was probably desperate and had the big bucks so they can receive attention from TR fans.

The replayability of shadow will significantly increase when Endurance mode is added ..just need more scenes of Battle and stealth in order to achieve the balance

They need to have the will to do Endurance Mode first...considering we've been through 3 different online modes/content I doubt it will happen.

Not so far-fetched, imo. Sony had UC at the time, a direct rival to TR. Why would they take marketing rights for TR when they have their own action adventure game. Of course it's still in their interest to do their bit in promoting TR too, just not as an exclusive/timed exclusive. MS on the other hand needed an action adventure game of their own, even on a short term basis.

MS did horrible marketing Rise, and they barely even mentioned Shadow. I wouldn’t find it to crazy if Sony was to assist with the next game. MS is crap.
