From TheGamer: “Crystal Dynamics Tomb Raider reboot trilogy never seems to get a fair shake. Its place in the general series perception likely wasnt helped by the fact it ended on Shadow of the Tomb Raider, which is not only the weakest of the trio but one of the worst Tomb Raider titles full stop. Its not awful, but Tomb Raider games have been consistently high quality, and Shadow dips below that bar far too often. While Rise of the Tomb Raider had shown the new formula at its best, Shadow came along and showed it at its worst.”
