    Rise of the Tomb Raider on PS4 today is as beautiful as it was on Xbox One 12 months ago. Plus, the 20 Year Celebration Edition has plenty of contents to explore and play.

    Rise of the Tomb Raider is full of action, adventure, emotions, sense of journey... It's an amazing videogame.

    Rise of the Tomb Raider will go down in history for being a Triple A game with production values worth of a TV series. Every good aspect of the game are the same ones that made Tomb Raider (2013) a superb game, and it is still as enjoyable as it was back then. It is a must if you like action and adventure games and you will like it even with the lack of new mechanics.

    Even if you’re not going to end up staying for the story, at least the brutal combat itself will keep you satisfied for hours on end. Stay merciless, Lara.

Rise of the Tomb Raider is a fresh start to a new series that has made a great comeback and rumors are that they the working on the next sequel. When it comes to story telling and puzzle solving it will make you so much involve that it would get difficult to put down the controller. But I felt like there are boundaries like there is only one way to get in and other to get out so if they had made multiple ways to get in and out it would have been great but in everything else its fantastic.
    Its a recommendation to buy this game if its $40 or less.

    A good game. Not great or awesome, but 100% worth playing through.

    A good game. Not great or awesome, but 100% worth playing through.

    GREAT: Visuals - this game, although somewhat crippled by the ps4 pro being still rather very weak - are very beautiful; I've had people pop in and immediately say how pretty it was.

    Also, after finishing the game, the map is split into zones, which tell you how much % complete each one is -- I find this awesome (hear that 2k ? mafia 2 anyone ?).

    SO-SO: the gameplay dynamics, while quite enjoyable, could have been a bit improved, on the 2nd difficulty level (1 above the easiest), it's a bit too easy I found (and the 3rd one up was a bit too hard for a very quick play-through (I had bought rdr2)).

    On the easiest you could literally finish off almost all opponents with the melee weapon (which in select cases literally got you stuck - for example the mission "Survive the Ambush by the D******* Ones", if you would melee kill everyone, the gates wouldn't open and you'd literally be stuck - you need to shoot with weapons there). I got very pissed off when I wasted a good hour on that mission ... other stuff like the bow are indeed very fun to use, and make for very interesting stealth approaches in select areas.

    BAD: honestly the voice active for Lara I found incredibly annoying - she has a very artificial and forced British accent; I'm not a native speaker and truly love all accents, texan, canadian, australian, scotish british -- you name it I love it -- but when 90% of your energy goes into faking me a posh british accent ... I don't know ... really pissed me off -- you either get used to it or it gets better as you progress through the game. It pissed me off enough to write .. what .. 5 6 lines on it so ... yeah. The divinity and god and what not was also not my favorite topic, but, meh, that I didn't take points away for.

    CONCLUSION: especially at what it costs now - it really shouldn't be a game you didn't play - it really is good fun
