    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.

    On PC, Rise of the Tomb Raider is the same fantastic action adventure we played on Xbox One some months ago. if you have a high-end machine, this new version offers an even more immersive experience thanks to numerous graphical improvements.

    Rise of the Tomb Raider is a great adventure game. More exploration, platform zones and stealth mechanics than shooter moments, great plot and full of content to discover.

    The thing that really stands out about Rise of the Tomb Raider is that you care about the characters at all.

    Rise of the Tomb Raider on the PC looks and plays fantastically. Lots of various graphical options allow for comfortable gameplay even on weaker machines. Nixxes Software deserves some serious praise but let's not forget that real thanks should be aimed at Crystal Dynamics. The PC port wouldn't be so good if not for the excellent Xbox version.

    A little too streamlined in places, but Rise of the Tomb Raider does a lot to improve upon its predecessor.

    It's no Tomb Raider, but with the new expedition mode, maybe it doesn't really need to be.

I enjoyed it very much, and the variety of secondary missions makes you want to complete it 100% which extends the lifetime of the game. Totally recommended. Expand

    This was my first experience with Tomb Raider since the ps2 games.
    I started to play with high expectations, and this was attended in the beginning, but after a few minutes the problems starts to show up.
    The first thing i don't like about this game was the pace. This game is too slow if compared with the ps1 and ps2 games. They basically have transformed Lara from a badass who run and gun everyone in her eye sight, to a scared average girl who needs to hide in bushes and stealth kill the enemies
    The exploration in this game is not good also, as you have too many boring things to do like:
    -Hunting animals (that's so **** boring)
    -Ton of collectables to catch
    -Exploring tombs that the majority looks all the same
    -Boring side quests
    The story of this game begins nice, but also fall shortly after a few hours, when stupid things starts to happens. A lost village hidden in a mountain that doesn't feel like is hidden at all? Seriously? How in the **** hell trinity with a ton of helicopters can't see it? That's so **** stupid.
    And now the worst of all things: The anti USSR sentiment in this game.
    This game has a load of **** about USSR, and that's funny because there is a lot of propaganda about Lara Croft being a strong women representation in games and they forgot that USSR was the first country to give equal rights to men and women in the world. Before Soviet Union women can't go work like men and because of this i will give this game no more than a 0 out of 10
