I know there are those people who loved the old Tomb Raiders and look at this one and the first thing, or things, that come to mind is the change of size of certain things in the game. I've seen the comments in the forums on different sites about boycotting the game until it is fixed. Let me tell you right now, I've played the old games, and you are only hurting yourself boycotting this game because of some changes. This is the best Tomb Raider game ever made, including the first of the newer remakes, and I'm just not saying that to be kind. This game earned it's 5 star status with me, which is hard to do for an action or platforming game. The graphics are amazing and the gameplay are awesome, and the story itself is one of the best ones. So don't judge this game by it's cover, because it is an awesome game so don't pass it up.
This sequel to the gritty 2013 reboot is a rare case of bigger and better. Like "Uncharted 2: Among Thieves", it's an improvement over its predecessor in not only story, but in action as well. And just like in "Thieves", it's a visual feast mainly set in a snowy landscape. In this entry, Lara is no longer green, but is a few steps closer to being the strong iconic character we've all come to know. This time, she's on the hunt for a mythical Holy Grail-type object hidden somewhere in the wilderness of Mongolia. Unfortunately, it's also being sought out by an evil paramilitary army that descend from an ancient order of knights. The premise recalls "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" which is fitting since "Tomb Raider" has always been a female take on the Indy series. The gameplay is a refinement of the formula established in the first game and there?s just more of everything this time out. There are more tombs and caverns to explore, more puzzles to solve, more firearms to equip and more upgrades to use. Additionally, developer Crystal Dynamics has made this TR even more cinematic with huge, dazzling action sequences reminiscent of those featured in "Uncharted 2". Beyond the excellent 20 hour campaign is "Expeditions", an arcade-style spin on each level that players can modify to be more difficult or easier with RPG-like cards. The cards can be purchased with real money or with earned in-game currency. You can also tackle user-created Expeditions and /or create your own which you can share with others online. However, unlike the first game, there are no multiplayer modes included. The game is also graphically gorgeous. There is very little screen tear and framerate issues are virtually non-existent. In the audio side, the musical score, voice acting and sound effects are all top notch. The overall presentation is nothing short of amazing. In the end, ?Rise of the Tomb Raider? turned out to be one of the best action games of 2015. If you were a fan of the ?M? rated reboot, then you?ll be a fan of this more explosive follow-up. I?d rank it with a 9 out of 10.
Rise of the Tomb Raider is a perfect video game in every single aspect. Just like the first TOMB RAIDER reboot on PC , Rise of the Tomb Raider will keep you coming back.. This time around you play as a more confident Lara Croft as she sets out to find the treasure of her dad who is dead. All the things you love about TOMB RAIDER are back and better here.. you have a great arsenal of weapons but the best is the BOW with the 3 different arrow types. Whether your hunting animals or killing enemies it's always fun to aim that BOW and get a head shot. Shotguns, Machine guns and handguns are other options. Combat is always fun. close up melee one hit finishers to crafting explosive bombs.. it's great. Combat isn't everything. The vast world you're in is so beautiful I believe it truly pushes the PC to it's graphical limits. Huge mountain tops covered in ice and snow that you climb up using various tools, to caves and greens of trees with the bright sun peaking through. The landscapes are a pleasure to explore. Once again the Metroid style returns where you need to get better upgrade's and then you can come back to previous area's and open up places that were previously locked or closed. Exploration is a huge staple in the TOMB RAIDER REBOOT. So far nothing I've said really shows you the difference of TOMB RAIDER and RISE OF THE TOMB RAIDER. The key difference this time around are bigger and better area's to explore. Caves now are really nice and unique unlike the previous game. Caves can be huge inside with lots of rocks to climb up and under with water streams, enemies, treasures and everything else. You automatically pull out your glow sticks when entering a dark area which is pretty cool. There are more side missions and NPC's this time around to really keep you embraced in the game. Besides the main game, RISE OF THE TOMB RAIDER features DLC content and extra content that is like the equivalent of Call of Duty Zombie modes. You must survive and explore separate area's from the main game with it's only story that reveals more about the main games story. A few of the missions have you exploring the Croft Mansion which is pretty cool. There is a lot more here than just the main game to keep you entertained for many hours.
It's a pity Lara main attributes got smaller than they were in the beginning of the series but at least now we got some other thing to admire, Damn, those views are breathtaking, it's simply amazing how beautiful the games looks, climbing mountains and exploring caves while holding the flare can squeeze the last juice from you graphics card but it;s worth it. This 20 hours adventure for clearing family name sure is fun though some achievement are bugged so if you like to get 100% out of the game keep that in mind,
The Tomb Raider reboot back in 2013 was fantastic. A mature, gritty adult game that paid homage to the originals, but also made it something new. We got to watch a young, na?ve Lara taking the first steps to becoming the Tomb Raider we know. The sequel takes everything good about it and turns it up to ten. We have some returning characters, new enviroments (although most of the action is in the snowy Siberian wastes) and a truly chilling villain. Most of the original game mechanics return, only improved. The crafting system is fun. The graphics are unbelievable. I genuinely think this is the best looking game out there at the moment. Take a look at some of the screenshots on google and you'll see what I mean. The 20th Anniversary with all the included DLC adds loads of hours of extra gameplay. I've lost track of the amount of hours I've invested into the endurance mode, a fun, randomly generated map where you have to survive against the elements, wildlife and a range of foes. The challenge is to retrieve as many artefacts as possible. You can leave at any point, however the longer you stay the higher your score, although the challenge scales with it. Also included are a couple of other extras, Blood ties and Lara's nightmare both give a fun look at the reimagined Croft manor. The Baba Yaga DLC adds an extra adventure, seamlessly integrated into the main game. Cold Darkness awakened is an entertaining, although shortlived, extra bit of fun. Also included in the 20th anniversary are a number of legacy skins dating back to the original games which are a bit of fun. I can't recommend this game highly enough, and when the eventual third in the trilogy is announced I will be pre-ordering with the season pass based on the strength of this game alone.
