Dust and lighting effects are so natural as to almost disappear from notice. The mechanics are incredibly simple—move your Snakebirds around the level in order to eat all of the fruit, then make your way to the exit—but the puzzle design is excellent, and seemingly straightforward levels can be difficult to work your head around. This game has volumetric fog and particle effect tricks that distort light, enhanced water reflections, advanced anti-aliasing techniques, environmentally reactive foliage, and so many other high-end graphical tricks that it'd be hard not to call Shadow of the Tomb Raider one of the most visually impressive games in existence.

Most of the other games averaged around 46-52fps with drops to low 40s. Explosions are always better if mast-shards are flying out of them. Once I reached more open areas such as the Soviet Installation and beyond my fps fell to 20-30fps, sometimes less for a few seconds.

Microstutter and the fps going all over the place. Well, unheard of aside from L. Undertale will make you second guess every key press except the 'Buy' button.

To this day, the game's requirements remain pretty darn high, and it still doesn't run buttery smooth, even after the game was for months in order to be fixed and optimized.
From the aforementioned ten games, Quantum Break and Kingdom Come Deliverance were the most demanding ones. So what are you waiting for? At this stage it feels like what they hope to do won't happen. A laptop is our favorite way to play—a large enough screen to appreciate the art direction and easily read the text, but still portable enough to play on a plane or curled up on the couch. That means the controls will be built with a keyboard and mouse in mind, not a controller; and the graphics can be as insane as they want to be, because they aren't locking themselves into any on chipset.
