Did we miss something on diversity?

My review of this game

Ok this will be a long review so be prepared Gore This game isn't.extremely gory compared to the other tomb Raider games however there are some gory moments for example you see half a man's body fall out of a tree and its covered in blood and you can see his ribcage but it is shown for about a split second , when enemies ares shot with bullets or arrows a small blood spurt comes out.nothing too bad , when Lara is bit by animals or shot small blood spurts come out also not that bad and for stealth kills on humans most of the time you either choke/snap their neck (no blood shown ) or stab them with a. Knife which shows minimal blood Sex/nudity this game doesn't really contain a whole lot of sexual themes in it mabye just a few sex jokes or innuendos here and there but nothing bad and their is also very little to no nudity just mabye a few sightly revealing outfits Swearing This game contains a good amount of swearing but it's mostly just bi*ch or bas*ard and sh*t their are w few f bombs but not a whole lot Drugs/smoking/achohol From what I've seen theirs almost no drugs just a few cutscenes with characters smoking a cigarette and acholol is a somewhat big thing but it's nothing bad just characters drinking wine or beer Okay that's it for my review hope this helps :)

i hated it

it's the same thing over and over again just gruesome deaths and nothing to make the game exciting except for just everything that can go wrong goign wrong. the story is weak and easily predictable and the character voice acting is terrible.

This title has:

Too much violence
