After uncovering an ancient mystery, Lara must explore the most treacherous and remote regions of Siberia to find the secret of immortality before a ruthless organization known as Trinity. Lara must use her wits and survival skills, form new alliances, and ultimately embrace her destiny as the Tomb Raider. Experience high-octane action moments, conquer beautifully hostile environments, engage in brutal guerilla combat, and explore awe-inspiring deadly tombs in the evolution of survival action. In “Rise of the Tomb Raider,” Lara becomes more than a survivor as she embarks on her first Tomb Raiding expedition.
Lara’s Journey – Lara uncovers an ancient mystery that places her in the cross-hairs of a ruthless organization known as Trinity. As she races to find the secret before Trinity, the trail leads to a myth about the Lost City of Kitezh. Lara knows she must reach the Lost City and its hidden secrets before Trinity. With that, she sets out for Siberia on her first Tomb Raiding expedition.
Woman vs. Wild – In “Rise of the Tomb Raider,” Lara battles with not only enemies from around the world, but the world itself. Hunt animals to craft weapons and scavenge for rare resources in densely populated ecosystems. You’ll encounter beautifully hostile environments, full of treacherous conditions and unstable landscapes that will require Lara to push her limits to the very edge.
Guerilla Combat - Use the environment to your advantage, scale trees and dive underwater to avoid or takedown enemies, configure Lara’s gear, weapons, and ammo to suit your play style from stealth to guns blazing, craft explosives on the fly to sow chaos, and wield Lara’s signature combat bows and climbing axe.
Return to Tomb Raiding – Tombs are back, and they’re bigger and better than ever. In “Rise of the Tomb Raider” you’ll explore huge, awe-inspiring ancient spaces littered with deadly traps, solve dramatic environmental puzzles, and decipher ancient texts to reveal crypts as you take on a world filled with secrets to discover.
Rise of the Tomb Raider builds upon the extensive successes of its predecessor in almost every way you could imagine. Its pacing is practically perfect – Lara’s latest adventure never leaves you feeling fatigued by waves of enemies, instead always picking the best moment to trigger shifts in action or delivering new abilities, items, and areas to explore.
The Tomb Raiding itself is back, but bigger and better than in the 2013 game, recalling Lara’s classic beginnings. They are the true pleasure of this game once again, with valuable skills served up as rewards. But the relationship between fast-paced action and gentler exploration and puzzle-stuffed adventuring is incredibly well-balanced here. Ultimately, Rise of the Tomb Raider is a dynamic, confident game, delivering an experience that will set the heart pounding and leave you truly satisfied.

I played it this year on PC. I'm gonna go ahead and call it the Game of the Year for myself. It was incredible. Most fun I've had in a while. The previous game was decent, but this one totally took it to a whole different class.Some may already have said it, but, Rise of the Tomb Raider is actually more fun than Uncharted 4. They are in different categories, but share enough similarities to warrant the comparison. Oh, and I loved Uncharted 4 for all the things it gets right, but Tomb Raider has more freedom of movement, and it's puzzles are more entertaining. The only thing it really gets wrong is lesser important catacombs all share the same assets or almost. Totally recommend it to everyone! Looking forward to the third one. Kudos to the developer for their hard work too!
Don't get me wrong, this is a great game. One of the best open-world action/platform games out there, but this is just the same game that we played in the original reboot. And I'm not talking about gameplay mechanics, graphics or things like that. I mean, I've played ten Assassin's Creed games, I know what it is like to play the same game over and over again. Rise of the Tomb Raider is the same in a new way, in a way where everything happens the same way, in the same kind of areas and at the same time. What I'm trying to say is that the structure is exactly the same as the original one. It is as if the whole game have been re-skinned and nothing else. You'll have the standard climbing parts where rocks will fall in front of you or situations where you have to run while the whole scenario is collapsing. The problem is not that you are just facing the same situations, it is just that you are facing them in the same order. This Tomb Raider reboot may have improved a lot, and of course I agree it was exactly what the franchise needed. The problem is that storyline didn't improved that much. The story for the first one wasn't unique, and there is nothing memorable in this new plot. The game really needs a better story. I've spent the whole review pointing out the flaws of the game, but it has a lot of good things in it. Gameplay is awesome, stealth mechanics are well implemented and action parts are incredible. Graphics are overwhelming. The only problem that Rise of the Tomb Raider has is the previous game from the franchise. It was just too good to be true!
After suffering from a roller coaster of highs and lows throughout the years, the series was rebooted in 2013 with a game that made me fall in love with Lara all over again, the way I did back in 1996. Rise of the Tomb Raider follows the "if it ain't broke, don't fix" mentality by offering a new adventure that plays pretty identical to the first...but that's a great thing. The game offers a good story, amazing graphics and fun gameplay and fans of Ms. Croft, of stealth games or of exploration games should all equally enjoy this adventure. If you're a fan of all 3, then you owe it to yourself to pick up this game. It's quite superb.
I've been a Tomb Raider fan for QUITE some time now, and Rise of the Tomb Raider really got me back into the series strong. I originally played this on Xbox One as it was the ONLY console that offered it, but now that it's on PC, it looks, plays, and genuinely interacts better in every way. The graphics are a LOT better, the gameplay is so much smoother, and lastly, it feels so much more immersive with 60fps. The campaign is amazing, great storyline, lots of character development and interaction, GOOD combat system, GREAT crafting system, and now with the new survival multiplayer mode coming out, I'm sure that'll be a blast to play as well. If you're a fan of ANY of the Tomb Raider games, definitely give this one a go, you won't be disappointed.
Ok yes, this game is actually a lot like some sort of expansion for the last game. Don't get me wrong, we have a new setting, story, all the stuff. But you're basically doing almost everything exactly the same way as in the last game, just new names and skins and voices. But like the last game it is fun. More so with the new options it brings to the table. But it does lack a bit of the oomph that the last one had because that was her first adventure, but then again you're not left with the nagging sensation of wondering how she literally just became a badass and killer. However the story is done a little better. I mean like the last one you will see everything coming but everyone does a good job. To sum up, this is good. It's not great because it doesn't really improve on anything or bring anything too new to the table other than elements that are more like some dlc. But it isn't bad either because all the good things from the last game are present here, and some things are handled better plot and environment wise.
