Shadow of the Tomb Raider: The Path Home Review

In the end, though, when asked about what she will do next and Lara turns around with a little smirk on her face, I was moved to tears. This is it. This is the end of Shadow of the Tomb Raider, the game I love so much, the final game in the rebooted trilogy I cherish so much.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider: The Grand Caiman Review

I really enjoyed the level design of all the main parts of the mission - the crypt, the village and the tomb – as they were refreshingly different from most of the sights and tombs featured in the previous add-ons and more importantly, put Lara’s traversal abilities to a real test.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider: The Serpent’s Heart Review

Additional content for Shadow of the Tomb Raider keeps on coming at a rapid pace. It feels like it was only yesterday when I previously jotted down my thoughts of the latest additional tomb for Lara to raid. It’s okay, though, as with the DLC I have a regular reason to pop into my favorite game of the last year.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider: Nightmare Review

Challenge is once again nice and the visuals are consistently sumptuous with a bright sunlight highlighting magnificent features of the valley of the Monkey Gods. It’s a shame that for such an endearing endeavor the tomb is, it takes only some 1,5 hours to see the whole DLC through.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider Review

If Uncharted rose to fame with weapons it stole from washed-out Tomb Raider (before its reboot), Shadow of the Tomb Raider grabs them back, making it visually and gameplaywise the most essential action-adventure you can imagine.

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.

Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris

Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris is a great adventure. With the complex puzzles, enjoyable gameplay, and exquisite world to explore, Crystal Dynamics once again gives Tomb Raider fans an exemplary addition to the acclaimed series.

Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition

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.

Tomb Raider

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.

Tomb Raider

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.

Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness

Tomb Raider: Angel of Darkness is a game that has all the potential but Core failed to do anything with it to make it worth anyone’s while. The camera and the controls will mostly turn off people right from the get go, but if that doesn’t do the trick then the repetitive nature of the game will end up boring you in the end. I can only recommend this one to the true hardcore Tomb Raider fans, but for the rest of us there are much better games out there!
