This week’s PSN Deals will be a short and sweet one as there’s not really much to write about by way of discounts and deals. Rather than having hundreds of games discounted, this week’s offering is just the Deal of the Week. It’s a good one, though, with Lara’s third (and final?) outing in Shadow of the Tomb Raider.
Both the regular and the Croft Edition have had price cuts this week, with the regular version costing just £16.49 and the Croft Edition with bonus goodies costing £23.99. If you played the first two games in Lara’s latest adventures, this is as good a time as any to round out the collection. Our Jason Frye reviewed Shadow of the Tomb Raider ahead of its release last year and gave it a very impressive 9/10.
“Shadow of the Tomb Raider has some of the best visuals and sound of any game this year. This last entry in the trilogy has improved every aspect of the previous two games while adding some new ideas. Exploration is both thrilling and satisfying, and the excellent tombs are enormous puzzles waiting to be discovered and conquered. Other than a few minor audio and video flaws, the story and characters fall just a little short of greatness, but that won’t keep you from enjoying an amazing game. In Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Lara finally realizes her full potential, and it is quite the ride.”
