I'm sorry but Rise's story is way better than Shadow, and Lara's character was exactly top notch. Or at least, that's my opinion. But saying that Rise's story is at "level of hell" well...simply no.

Mostly dislike it because I just can't get past the story and the potential for this game. You can have fun with some of the gameplay, not going to lie there, but the story mostly just kills it for me.

No "Best game in the series after the first 3 option"? lol
Cuz that's where I'm at regarding this game.

^ this 100%

I don't understand how people even say this game has a decent story. I will not lie that gameplay and tombs are great, but...it's just that.

Maybe people like and judge stories from a different perspective you do?

This. Because like is such an understatement. It has its flaws, but what I love about it overshadows them.

What I dislike is the options of the poll they lack the "I'm 50/50 on it" or "other/penguin" options , I would've probably voted one of these . Those options are very vague and non-expressive .

I love the tombs , puzzles , many locations look really beautiful albeit repetitive jungle-y places that lose their charm after a while , soundtrack is amazing , underwater swimming is stunning , I adore many "levels" such as the cenote , the river bank till the end of the Provenir oil fields , catacombs of San Juan etc .

However , the game is heavily bogged down and smudged by the forced "social aspect" that EM shoehorned into the game , main hubs are repetitive , restrictive and simply not fun , Paitit's one of the worst things that ever happened to the franchise since AOD , disappointing conclusion to the trilogy , extremely lackluster final section etc . Overall the main campaign in general is simply not engaging enough to replay .

I don't like it , I don't dislike it . It's still a good game though .

It's not a matter of perspective.

Oh it is . I disliked the story as well but other people can enjoy it alright . Opinions about entertainment are not facts .
