The story and the characters were my main reason for hating it so much.
It's pretty frustrating because the writing is the most ambitious of the three, and Shadow has some of the best moments in the trilogy. The beginning, up until Peru and Lara saving Unuratu are some of the standouts for me.

The problem stems from the lack of cohesion.

Started a third playthrough of Shadow two weeks ago (several months after the second one) , and I was actually quite enjoying it a bit more than last time if I was remembering correctly , and all was fine up until I reached Paititi . And I just...closed the game right away and haven't gone back to it ever since , I don't even feel like kicking off the game again and continuing .

I know I sound like a broken record at this point , but I'm really beyond shocked at how much Paititi ruined the game and its replayability for me . After all this time , my opinion about it hasn't changed or softened one bit , I really thought I might warm up to it a little after this long break but nope . I'm sad and disappointed .

Damn this stupid annoying blunder of a village...

It is. Get the key, save etzli, cenote, rescue unuratu then goodbye Paititi. I don’t even consider Cenote as part of Paititi bc it’s just amazing on its own. And tbh the DLCs makes Paititi a lot more enjoyable even though it makes it longer.

Unless the 8th DLC is released soon, then I'm taking an extended break from the game for a while, Paititi being the major reason why. While I'm not one of the members here who vehemently hate the area, it has worn out its welcome due to the 7 DLCs being imbalanced heavily in the Hidden City's favor.

There's too many people tbh. Kinda wish it was like GTA where you can kill people, but then you go on their bad side.

For me Paititi is better now that I'm not forced into that dress and the DLCs are worth playing because most of them are pretty good.

If they lift the restrictions I think it will be much better.

Still though it is the worst part about Shadow and I question what they were thinking when they thought about Paititi.
