    Destiny expansion, Spiderman, RDR2, BFV, FIFA 19 and whatever COD we're up to are all out or coming in the build up to Xmas.

    Roll on black Friday.

    I like the puzzles in these type of games just like Uncharted. Sometimes it is nice to have a breather from all the action.

    The ign review said there was less shooting action and a little more stealth. Plus there's 9 huge tombs apparently to explore :eek:

    RPS reckon the puzzles in this one are the best of the reboot trilogy alright.

    I love how they've introduced a photo mode this time with competitions part of it. The game looks gorgeous though and stuff carries over from past games.

    What have they done to the stick controls? They feel awful. Max sensitivity and they're still too slow. It's so slow then it accelerates too fast. They felt so nice in Rise.

    Gonna wait until this gets a response time patch. How they can release games with poor response times for movement is unbelievable really.

    How bad is it? I didn't bother pre ordering due to getting spiderman but was looking forward to picking this up this weekend.

    Have square enix commented on it or anything?

    It is quite bad. You cannot track if something moves fast across the screen. It's too slow. There is a slow movement delay then it's like acceleration kicks in then overshoots all the time. I have the sensitivity maxed out.

    I haven't seen anything on their forums about it.

    I'm really looking forward to this, as long as it's more of the same I'll be happy.

    I'm enjoying what I've played so far. If you enjoyed the first 2 games then you'll enjoy this.

    Not so sure about that, I enjoyed the first, second wasn't as good and so far I'm not getting the Tomb Raider feel from this one. Not sure why tbh but it doesn't feel right. Graphics are nice in places (playing on Xbone X) but in some places it feels like there's a mix of 4K and 1080p and there's also some pretty poor frame rates at times especially in the first Village.

    What’s the general consensus so far then?

    Really enjoying it. Graphics for me are beautiful. Problem is they’re so lovely, I tend to forget about the story and just stand there looking around in awe, hammering the screenshot button.
