Test of Shadow of the Tomb Raider: The adventure that changed Lara Croft!

The development of Lara Croft

Lara Croft has not yet been the world’s most famous archaeologist today However, her survival and hunting skills and abilities are ever before developed. On the psychological front, she’s not secure, she is tortured by her history and has to discover how to alleviate her pain so that she can move on and help save the world. In her travels through South America, you’ll observe her transformation and learn how she was able to become one of the most famous tombs thermiller.

The image of the heroine has become quite damaged as we see a more human face, and despite her role as a heroine, she’s an actual person with weaknesses. Additionally, she has received assistance from several individuals to be the confident female she has become today. This includes Jonah, who has been with her as of Tomb Raider 2013, who is always there to answer to her need for helping her. In addition, it’s only during these scenes that they are on the front of the stage. However, his character is not thoroughly well-developed, and his appearances only help to support Lara Croft. Inquiring about whether it’s the real him or it is the Shadow of the Tomb Raider (Shadow of Tomb Raider in French).

While the mainstay of the whole Tomb Raider franchise, whether on video or in the movie, is that it always can overcome the most perilous circumstances, in the new film, some scenes are far too exaggerated. There are no spoilers, but they were completely untrustworthy, including Lara Croft… These are incidents that do not even match the logic or laws of the universe within games. However, such moments are rare. After a euphoric sigh, I went on my way

Shadow of the Tomb Raider is the final step to be taken by Lara Croft. It is also set in beautiful scenery in which wildlife is at tranquility and away from the bustle of urbanization, where you’ll be able follow her amazing growth.

Starting from the Peruvian jungle up to Paititi amazing landscapes

Shadow of the Tomb Raider is filled with beautiful locations, even paradisiacal places where we need to take a moment and look around in particular because the game provides many excellent observation points to look at the whole of the fauna and flora.

The developers weren’t content to end with the visuals and included an amazing soundscape where all the animal sounds can be heard in the trees’ foliage. If a paradise-like setting opens to you and you’re able to enjoy it, it’s also a great hunter’s paradise! But, if there are exotic animals that are spotted in the forest, they are not dangers. The instances that your life could be at risk from predators are sporadic. The risk of being attacked at any moment by wildcats is almost non-existent or at most on the land…

In reality, the jungle isn’t just made up of forests, but water is also part of it. It’s an integral part of the exploration. and more than just an ordinary water level It will need to be scoured through from the top down because it conceals numerous pathways that lead to hidden treasures waiting to be found. As opposed to the land, the danger of the underwater creatures is felt because the piranhas, along with other species of fish, can strike you. Due to the vulnerability of water, they can kill you quickly.

The waterways share the features of passages found on land. Resource may be harvested seaweed allows you to hide from potentially dangerous fish and make use of it to take on adversaries who are part of the Trinitarians.

A few towns were constructed in the middle of the landscape and are home to many artifacts and relics. But, they haven’t taken over the land they have occupied, and they also fish and cultivate crops by the natural environment. Particularly Paititi is the most important village located in Shadow of the Tomb Raider The inhabitants reside far from the contemporary world that we live in. The village has its own rules and has enacted its system of functioning to guarantee peace. It’s a vast area where every part of the community is distinct. In addition to the scenic side, Paititi will be a crucial location as traders will provide you with valuable materials to ensure the success of your journey.

It is evident the effort that developers have put into Paititi. Unfortunately, it’s possibly at the cost of everything else that takes place before the discovery. Everything that occurs before the arrival of Paititi is sluggish and bland. I felt like the game was never going to start, and I have trapped in an extremely long intro. After completing the game, I can see that it wasn’t just a sensation. Afterward, the game can make up for it, and Paititi is a crucial part.

Exploration is a key element of the game

As an archaeologist it’s clear that the primary objective is to discover. This is one reason why landscapes are crucial for the characters in Tomb Raider. What excites Lara Croft is discovering tombs or crypts that were left unexplored for years or hundreds of years and then being among the fortunate people to enter.

But, they hold significant secrets. And the artifacts, or relics which are in the area must not get into the wrong hands, many traps have been set up to deter intrusions. Therefore, you must be extra cautious when walking through these sacred areas. Their entrances aren’t readily in view. Consequently, you do not have to settle with the pathways the game provides to move forward. After you’ve completed these mazes, puzzles are bound to block your path, and you’ll need to use your brain to solve the maze. The puzzles are accessible to everyone but not too easy. This is ideal for enjoying the moment and achieving your goals without losing your mind or abandoning the game.

In addition to tombs and tombs or crypts , various items that are in your way (or not) can be gathered. This will enhance your understanding of the past and you’ll be capable of reading and comprehending the ancient languages written on monoliths. Each action and discovery you take on will earn you the opportunity to gain experience that can be used to allow you to unlock skills points. These points must be put into the skill tree to increase your abilities as a warrior, raider, and researcher. If the job proves to be difficult for you, the dialog with the villager will show you the exact location of all items and the entries to your list.

Lara Croft does not need cars since she climbs up every ledge and wall she comes across. With the grappling hook she uses and her rope that you can use, your movements will be smooth and effortless. It’s an enjoyable experience to watch her flying across the air like she were Spider-Man. But there’s an issue with these movements, particularly when she jumps. This problem was previously seen in previous films and remained in Shadow. When you jump, you can alter the direction. This gives an extremely bizarre rendering in which it appears as if Lara is in a shaky state. This is also impossible to achieve in real life, so watching this happen in the seasons is an affront.

Challenges are also available to you based on the region you’re in. They are fairly easy and, like the previous ones, it’s by exploration and searching that you’ll be able to finish the tasks. The storyline will be the primary goal, little stories exist in the form of side missions. It’s fascinating that they are real-life stories that happened for the NPC. They don’t offer you many sexy tasks to finish, and I was able to put aside the main story to concentrate on these tasks. Despite the sheer number of tasks to complete and the main mission, I was not overwhelmed. The developers were able to integrate all the content in a way that was logical, without it becoming routine.

The Fighting

There aren’t any epic fights aside from that final battle, and it is the closest but isn’t epic. The enemies are small however, the ones who try to kill you are very tough. In fact, stealth is the only way to beat the enemy, as even when playing with normal difficulty you’ll be wiped out of life extremely quickly, and the regeneration rate isn’t fast enough to be relying on. It is definitely possible to jump through the heap, however the process is more difficult since ammo is limited with the exception of your arrows, which can be made. Particularly since the game gives you strategies to remain unnoticed.

In the event that high-grass areas are positioned in arenas (areas specifically created for combat zones and identified by the low walls that provide security, as well as explosive barrels), it is possible to sneak into it in a way that enemies are unable to observe you and, by similarly if adversaries become too close, take them out and get them out of the way.


Another way to move around without showing your face or revealing yourself is to conceal yourself with the mud as well as stick yourself to the walls that are covered in dirt-covered vines. It’s completely plausible since Lara disappears off onscreen! This isn’t simply an illusion that makes you think that the AI is blind. The player can also lose sight of her when he gets distracted or glances away.

In terms of defending it, you’ll always be armed with her bow as well as other weapons like the rifle or pistol. All of them will be upgraded due to the materials you’ve accumulated. For explosives, you’ll be required to make them at the point of use using the cans or bottles which will be used, for example, as a distraction or in the form of Molotov cocktails or a grenade.

It’s your responsibility to figure out the best strategy because Lara has a range of gear that can be used by both tough players as well as the discrete ones to beat her adversaries. Arrows that cause harm or are poisonous clothing that boosts specific skills, and many more… Combat is a crucial part of this game. They can add the action without being the core for the sport However, this isn’t in any way an issue.

The struggle and survival instinct

One of the latest features of the license includes the ability to customize difficulty levels in accordance with your preference. In reality, you’ll be able to change the level of difficulty for exploration or combat as well as puzzles without affecting others. If, for instance, you’re more comfortable in combat, you’ll be able to turn them into difficult. Likewise, if puzzles don’t appeal to your cup of tea, You’ll be able to change them to simple.

My experience was that only exploration was difficult, and that was only because the tutorial prompts annoyed me. In fact, if you’re normally on, the tutorial will be displayed all through the game. It’s not just an outline on the side, but it’s displayed at the center on your display regardless of whether it’s the middle of a ledge, as well as for pockets of air that you’re in when you’re in the water. This isn’t entirely understandable regardless of the instruction related to exploration. There are a lot of people who get stuck in their game because they’ve forgotten the keys. It is, however, an option that is extremely useful and appreciated. In actuality, it is something that should be standard in all video games.

The survival instinctswill aid you greatly in these three distinct areas. For exploration, the pathways you can take are more or less of a challenge. In the case of puzzles the natural instinct to survive will draw attention to the most useful objects as well as the ones you must interact with. In the easy mode, the sequence of interactions will be highlighted, while in normal, you’ll be required to work out the order by yourself. Likewise, in difficult, no objects are highlighted. In the case of fighting in survival, you will be able to identify enemies, even when they are in the way and obstacles, whereas in normal you’ll be able see the extent to which an opponent is not visible to others in that case in the event that you see someone in yellow, you are able to strike him without being noticed in the event that the person is red, that means someone else you can see him killing.
