    Started to play xmas day. Amazing eyecandy and attention to detail though out.
    This game must have cost a shed load of money to make.
    I got it in the sale and now I feel guilty.

    Finally finished the main story with 22 hours played. It says I only found 6 of the 9 optional tombs though so I'm going back for those.

    I felt the story was pretty mediocre, just like the other two games but the locations in the game were very well done, Paititi in particular. It was kinda cool to find out Andres Lopez was a real person too, even if he never actually saw Paititi.

    Finding this game to be a real TR game. Yes, not played a TR game as good as this since TR3.
    As Little Nicky would say this game is like poppies chicken.

    I take it Crossfire doesn't work with this at all? Unless I'm doing something wrong! Tried DX12 and not DX12 but haven't tried any custom profiles yet just default.

    The Tree of Life Tomb was quite creepy.

    Yeah that was a fun one. The game did have a few places that were creepy enough to make me a little uneasy for a bit. Not sure which tomb was my favorite, maybe San Cordoba as it reminded me of The Deadmines with the ship inside the mountain.
    Temple of the Sun gave me the most trouble, I thought the thing in the middle was important, it wasn't.

    I've finished all the tombs and crypts now with exploration and puzzles set to hard, combat normal. Got me 28 hours total so well worth it overall. I still can't recommend the game at full price though.
    I'll wait for the full season pass to release before I get on the DLC.

    Any outstanding crashing issues? The recent nv hotfix thread had some feedback about crashes still being there. I'm bored af of AC:Odyssey so I'd like to play this instead.

    I haven't had any crashes. Playing it lightly for a month now, 2 or 3 different driver updates since installing game. No issues with any of them.

    Almost felt the game writers were trolling us with the Baba Yaga crap. It may have been the most unfun experience I've had in any game to date. I hope nothing like that shite is in SOTR. Still early in the game for me, playing it on and off sparingly.

    Well got to Paititi. After spending 3 skill points for the ability to carry more resources, I find that I have to buy a pouche/bag from a merchant to do that. None of which at this stage in the game have them. And wow, the pacing in this game is horrendous! The long drawn out lame dialogue I have to put up with when talking to villagers or mission givers sucks ballz. I am sure there is some good gameplay ahead but the shite I have to put up with to get there is nauseating to say the least. Whoever wrote the script for this game needs to be kept away from all future games forever.

    Been playing on and off for last few weeks. Turning out to be pretty good. Once you're out of the villages, gameplay is decent and the environments are easily the most beautiful in any TR game to date.

    I'm playing it right now too. I actually like that there is less combat :p It's prone to a few cheap deaths like Naughty Dog games but atleast reloads are practically instant thanks to SSD's.
