    If you haven’t picked up Rise of the Tomb Raider yet then is without doubt the package to go for, but if you do already own it on a different platform then I’d recommend waiting for a sale to pick up the extras.
  2. Rise of the Tomb Raider still feels great after a year. Blood Ties is an awesome expansion and makes you wish that the actual game was like that expansion. There was actually no need for Lara's Nigthmare and its zombies.

  1. I’m probably guilty of hoping that, now that the nu-Lara groundwork is established, Tomb Raider might now feel more free to re-embrace the tonal qualities that we loved the original games for. ‘Celebtration’ or no, I shouldn’t realistically expect add-on content for a game which very deliberately employs a dour vibe to somehow depart from that. Happy 20th birthday, Lara. I hope you find your way home one day.

    Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration comes with the Season Pass and includes all DLC's avaible.

    After 11 Hours in total I completed the "Main Campaign" and I must say that I absolutley loved this Game and its Story.

    First of all you are required to play the first rebooted Tomb Raider before you play this one. Otherwise you wont get the Full Story.

    Secondly this Game was more exploring then shooting which is probably why they lowered the Age requirement.

    After the First 11 Hours:
    The Atmosphere was great, the Graphics were beautiful, the voice acting was amazing & the Combat was great.

    Lara is back and she got some new tricks. Did you like the Gear and weapons from the first game? Then you will love what Lara got new in stock in this one! Some are familiar and some are new but you learn it just as quickly as you did in the first game.

    Although this new Lara isn't like the old Lara she is still a loveable and powerful Character that you will start liking very quickly. More Emotions are shown and she looks more human thanks to an actual face model.

    Once you've completed the Game there is alot more to do, such as Challenge Tombs, Exploring, Co-op, Croft Manor, DLC & Multiplayer. Now I am not usually one that goes after finishing the Game, again in to complete everything however. Once you've completed the "Main Campaign" there is more Story waiting for you. So go ahead and "Continue" to see what awaits you.

    So Far this Game got me hooked up in playing and hours are passing by without me noticing how time flies. These Games are rare to come by and are such gems. So Far I can recommend this Game to any Tomb Raider & Uncharted Fan.

    Rise of The Tomb Raider
    A Step Back From Greatness
    Tomb Raider 2013 is one of my most favorite games ever.. Needless to say I was excited to play the sequel..
    Unfortunately, they dropped the gritty tone of the original to chase uncharted….
    Lara sets out to uncover a mystery her father was mocked for..
    This game starts out in the Serbian mountains and the majority of the game keeps you in the snow covered mountains…
    And of course there are bad guys after the same artifact you are..
    So youre not alone…
    The tomb raider reboot introduced a crafting system which has been brought back, but this time feels much more in the background..
    You can gather items and hunt animals for materials to craft bandages and upgrade your weapons…
    But none of this is forced…
    And much like the past game you upgrade your weapons at a campfire, which also acts as a fast travel point and a place for you to spend your skill points as you level up…
    Rise of the tomb raider feels much more linear this time around..
    The world doesn’t really feel as connected as the original…
    Its for the most part a linear path that you traverse with climbing aces and ropes..
    The game feels much more like assassins creed this time around because of this…
    It gives uncharted 4 a run for its money with how much climbing you actually do here…
    As well as the series as a whole during the few epic chase sequences qhich are easily some of my favorite moments in the entire game…
    When you aren’t climbing there are a few openish sections you can explore but the mistake the original made is back as well with secrets being locked off until you progress further in the story to unlock the needed tool and come back...
    This is a cheap tactic to prolong gameplay hours…
    but more so its frustrating and ironically discourages exploration…
    Why look around when 1 in 2 areas is going to tell me to come back later?
    I might as well just ignore everything and run forward..
    This is what I ended up doing..
    Fortunately rise of the tomb raider is gorgeous, and traversing the parquor sections and solving environmental puzzles old fans will be happy to see returned outside of just being secrets is a great deal of fun…
    And the 3rd person shooter combat feels decently nice, its not uncharted good, but its passable.. you have the option to stealth or shoot your way through most sections… you can also dodge attacks and counter….
    The puzzle pieces are all here for this to be a masterpiece of a game…
    except theyre missing the center piece… the one thing that makes all of this come together and work for uncharted in such a beautiful way…
    And that’s character…
    Theres not a single well written character in this entire game…
    This includes lara…
    The original this wasn’t so.. the game felt so real and you felt so vulnerable.. not only having to survive enemies but the environment.. I cared the entire way.. here however youre just a girl Nathan drake with 0 personality…
    Which ultimately makes this feel like just a generic third person shooter experience…
    There was no reason to stray away from the unique gritty adventure they had going on with tomb raider 2013, but they did and the feel of the game suffered for it
    And Im not sure if this story was game of thrones inspired, but it felt pretty copy and paste making every turn so predictable, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing if again the characters had character, but they didn’t.. I wasn’t invested in the story at all…
    The PS4 20 year celebration version also comes with all of the dlc…
    Endurance which can be played either single or co op where youre tasked with surviving by eating food and gathering resources.. Very fun idea, but the challenges for the trophies wont unlock unless they are an active challenge, which if youre trophy hunting kills all reason to continue if there are no more trophy related challenges to do…
    cold darkness which is a stealth zombie dlc where you have to infiltrate a research base for a chemical weapon
    as well as Baba Yaga and Blood ties which ill be reviewing on their own as they are each about an hour long expansion with their own stories..
    While I do wish the characters were better written in Rise of The Tomb Raider, I still feel is a quality experience, well worth your money if youre a fan of action adventure…
    I Give Rise of The Tomb Raider..
    an 8/10

    The Game itself is really good, but on PC it's so buggy, almost unplayable.
