Rise of the Tomb Raider has got to be the most beautiful game I've played to date. Starting strong with a jaw dropping snowy mountain sequence, the game gives you a quick taste of what's to come. While the scenery is by and large very similar to the previous iteration, the updated graphics really make the world pop. Gameplay-wise, Rise of the Tomb Raider takes a very similar approach as the 2013 reboot. Most encounters can be tackled head on or through stealth and using your environment to fight enemies is encouraged. The biggest difference would be in world design. While the previous game was separated in areas you had little reason to go back to apart from collecting trinkets, this game opens up the world and introduces side quests and some of the usual open world tropes. The side quests are nothing to write home about, bordering on fetch quests and challenges. The main story is as engaging as the first one though. Involving the Croft family to a deeper effect, it really digs into Lara's character and set her up as the heroine she's bound to become At the cutting edge of video game technology, Rise of the Tomb Raider is a must play for anyone in search of spectacle.
'Rise of the Tomb Raider' keeps the core gameplay of its predecessor while expanding on several aspects. There is a new crafting system, a larger variety of skills to master, new weapons and attachments to collect, as well as various new ways to interact with the environment. Some classic Tomb Raider elements are back in RoTR: most notably Lara gets to swim now (even if vertical movement is very limited) and there are plenty of traps reminiscent of the first games in the franchise. Visually this is one of the most gorgeous games I have ever played. The soundtrack and sound effects also deliver in setting the tone. Unfortunately, I felt the game was ultimately held back by its story and characters, neither as compelling as in the 2013 instalment. This is no longer a survival story but a more generic exploration one, allies even commenting on how Lara 'can leave whenever she wants' as 'that is not her fight'. Wild life provides more of a challenge this time around, but the main enemies just don't feel like an overpowering force as the Solari did back in the reboot. Lara's allies also fail to engage the player in any meaningful way. Noteworthy is the option to replay previously completed chapters, which can also be changed in a number of ways. 'Blood Ties' mode provides a very entertaining combat-free exploration of the iconic Croft Manor. I did not care for 'Lara's nightmare' or 'Cold Darkness Awakened', I just felt they had nothing to do with the franchise. A final note on one of the nicest additions to the game, 'Endurance', a survival mode which can be played solo or with a partner. Besides having to survive the same (animal, human and undefined) enemies present in the main campaign, one must also watch out for traps and keep Lara and partner warm and fed at all times. Despite its rather generic story, opponent and allies, Rise of the Tomb Raider keeps Lara Croft's adventures on course.
I've always liked the series, loved the previous game and this one takes another step forward, best game of the series ever done, if you like Tomb Raider games you will love this one, played whole game except DLC's and even have it on youtube, compelling story and brutal gfx. Gets a 10/10 from me.
Rise of the Tomb Raider is exactly what it's expected to be! an attractive, delicious and beautiful game worthy of the name of Lara Croft and a Tomb Raider game. A real and charismatic character, fascinating environments, great temples, and a fictional adventure game which all made it one of the most memorable games of 2016 especially on PC! also gameplay of Rise of the Tomb Raider is still fascinating. you have two ways to destroy your enemies: stealth or face-to-face combat. Crystal Dynamics has been able to blend these two styles perfectly. so you are totally free to choose between stealth and fighting face to face and considering the excellent design of the game choosing how it ends is a tough battle. so If you're looking for an adventure, do not miss the Rise of the Tomb Raider.
The title Rise of the Tomb Raider can be described as the evolved version of the Tomb Raider 2013, a work that perfectly addresses the weaknesses of the previous version and even made them part of their successful experience. The Rise of the Tomb Raider is a game which made the graphic and visual elements in serve of gameplay and stories, and does not exaggerate the cinematic experience for the player, and this has given a pleasurable rhythm to gameplay. The Rise of The Tomb Raider can be described as the best Xbox One title in terms of visual and special design environments, and one of the bests in eighth-generation!
