Some of us have it better than others based purely on where we were born. Like, a lot better.
Evolution slows down as we reproduce less frequently. We live more than three times as long as our “Iron Age” ancestors…

I think about this moment from the Simpsons ALL THE TIME! I’ll be walking downstairs for lunch, and this will pop into my head and I’ll giggle quietly to myself.
I love that her dress turns into a skirt and shirt. Instead of the typical “magical girl” transformation where she would become scantily clad, she becomes ready for battle.
Not impressed, but not disappointed either.
The graphics are not impressive, particularly since I just finished Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition on the PS4. The voice acting is good, but the writing isn’t. The gameplay is fun, not overly challenging or complicated.
The game doesn’t allow you to jump at will. Several times I’ve run into situations where I just need Garrett to jump. either to grab a ledge or dodge a trap, but there is no mechanic available to maneuver the character in the clearest way. They use a mechanic very similar to the freerun system from Assassin’s Creed, without which you have no way to jump.
Other than the character models being lacking in the level of detail the same studio put into TR:DE, The graphics are solid. The levels are well appointed and brilliantly designed, plenty of ways to sneak around and traverse each area. The setting is interesting despite the heavy handed “ghost exposition” that inexplicably follows Garrett wherever he goes.
Once I have finished the game I will update with my final thoughts, for now I would say it is worth picking up if you like the sneaky “stealth is required” sorts of games. Otherwise, wait for the price to drop, or even longer for it to be free via Playstation Plus.
