    SOTTR Previews

    A bunch of media outlets/youtubers/whatever have been releasing their previews for SOTTR. Here's some I've come across:

    Shadow of the Tomb Raider - PS4 Combat Gameplay | PS Underground


    Classic Platforming, Mud Physics And 6 More Shadow Of The Tomb Raider Features You'll Love | Rock Paper Shotgun


    Shadow of the Tomb Raider Preview B-roll


    New Gameplay Today - Shadow Of The Tomb Raider | Game Informer


    SOTTR Gameplay and Impressions by Melonie Mac


    I'm sure there's more previews out there, but I feel like I've watched enough to get a feel of the game (I didn't even finish the last two I shared here).

    I think the game looks gorgeous! I love how lush the jungle is. And how alive it feels with all the animals and their sounds. The Sound Design in general is really good! Overall, I love what I'm seeing (aside from Lara's atrocious mullet hair and some animations) and I think Shadow really might be the closest the Reboot as ever been to a proper TR game.

    ^ Agreed, the jungle looks amazing.

    I think I've seen enough of the gameplay now to feel justified with my pre-order. I just hope that in future they put the better gameplay out first, instead of those awful combat sequences.

    Still waiting for news on Croft Manor though...

    I've watched Mel's, the B-Roll and the 8 features videos. I think that's more than enough on top pf the reveal demo, Paititi and E3 footage. Probably more than usual for me. However, I also feel like I'm not too spoiled somehow. The videos show you quite a bit of the jungle environment, but it looks like there's so much more to see, which is great. The environments are absolutely stunning and vibrant.

    I have a few concerns, one being the skill tree menu, it's bloody ugly and I'm not too keen on the new hud. It more distracting than the one in Rise, imo.

    ^Surprisingly, I actually like that new skill tree menu. I like how we get to see all of them in the same screen as opposed to Rise where they were on different tabs. And the different colours is a simple yet effective way of grouping the different skills into their categories. I like it.
