Crystal Dynamics

Rise of the Tomb Raider

Rise of the Tomb Raider is truly a phenomenal game from top to bottom and it has some of the best visuals around. But graphics alone do not make a game great and Rise does not rely on them. Even on the Xbox 360, Rise is great but on the PC it’s better than ever. Rise of the Tomb Raider is the rare sequel that builds not only on its immediate predecessor but improves on all the games in its franchise. Like the 23rd James Bond film Skyfall, Rise of the Tomb Raider succeeds at bringing these two versions of a franchise together in an incredibly satisfying way. Whether this is your 1st Tomb Raider or your 11th, you owe it to yourself to play it. It really is the best Tomb Raider yet.

If you're interested in a return tour or want to see it all for the first time, though, consider the Definitive Edition a great way to play a great game.

While not every promising idea Tomb Raider has is pulled off successfully, it nevertheless turns in a tense and memorable ride that combines modern game design with its forebears' adventurous spirit in some exciting ways. Some of its missteps may well come at the cost of your enjoyment, but most can't hope to hurt the adventure in the long run. Although it never fully finds its identity, this is a game and a story worth seeing through.

Despite stepping away from the tone and play style of its forbears, Tomb Raider is an entertaining adventure and a great jumping off point for the new direction Crystal Dynamics wants to take. Great combat and beautiful scenery help to balance out issues stemming from questionable storytelling, elementary puzzle design and an overabundance of secondary items to collect. At the end of the lengthy adventure, Lara’s resolve to travel on a new path has me very excited to see what is in store for the future now that a strong foundation has been laid.
