Demo is very misleading. Only the biggining of the game is linear. I promise you it is way more open ended than Uncharted 4 and I have played bothI played the demo the other day and it was exactly the game I thought it would be.
It's polished from a graphical POV and from a general gameplay/control one too. But the game lacks authenticity of the great Tomb Raider name.
Forced narrative, forced tension, weak characterisations, big explosions, bigger explosions, set piece after set piece on a linear rail so linear it makes Uncharted feel like an open world game.
The first of the reboots was a decent game if not what I wanted from a TR game. Rise got worse and now, from the demo at least, it appears Shadow has followed the downward path.
Certainly the demo hasn't convinced me to buy the game even at £25 in the Xmas sales. Maybe at £19.99 I'll take a punt finally.
Sorry fans of it. Just my opinion.
