Here is some great news for anyone who has wanted to give Shadow of the Tomb Raider a try. There is a free trial available on PSN, and you can start the game as Lara tries to prevent an apocalypse that she started. It’s definitely not her best day ever.
The game starts you in Cozumel, Mexico. I remember the candlelight in that level is just lovely as the locals celebrate Day of Dead. The lighting is nice in general, as is the rest of the game. If you are still on the fence, you can see all my thoughts in the review.
As is the trend, if you like what you play, you can purchase the game, and your progress will transfer over to the full version. For the price, you don’t have anything to lose, and a grand adventure awaits you.

Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
