Our Opinions & The Wrap Up
Your rig may not be ready for Rise Of The Tomb Raider on full-tilt max settings but the PC version is the definitive experience in our humble opinion. Additionally, the game improves on the 2013 reboot with more to do and far more replayability, thanks to the many side quests and diverging paths to explore for more to see, more loot and glory. Here again we have an odd placement for the amount of violence and gun-toting. Sure, Indiana Jones featured bullets blazing in several scenes but fewer were fired by Dr. Jones himself. Still, the adventuring proceeds just as well; we would simply like to see more of it. As mentioned, the game shines when Lara is exploring using her skills and agility to decipher clues from relics, scale cliff faces, mountain climb, shimmy, rappel and spelunk through the game’s different terrain.
Finally the biggest let-down of the game is that it doesn’t tread forth confidently in what it does well. Instead, much of the game follows the story of going to fight a guerrilla style war for the locals, which is kind of lame. We want more tomb raiding from our Tomb Raider. Regardless this is a beautiful addition to the series that should not be missed by anyone who loves the genre of survival games in general. Just make sure your PC is up to for the adventure.
