    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.

    So much talk about Uncharted, not enough about the new Tomb Raider.... Maybe its the lack of marketing, or rather the beastly marketing teamSo much talk about Uncharted, not enough about the new Tomb Raider.... Maybe its the lack of marketing, or rather the beastly marketing team of Naughty dog, who knows

    Fantastic game, similar to Uncharted ,but let's remember its Uncharted that was inspired on Tomb Raider.
    This game has most of uncharted good parts but also adds a lot of non-linear stuff, its a semi-open world that you go back and forth to discover new things once you get new items and upgrades. Puzzles are far harder than uncharted but not too hard.
    Also, why not... Lara is REALLY LOT. Lol
    In general its a fantastic game that any hardcore game will enjoy. Strongly recommended.

    I beat this game on the PS4 Pro, so my review will be according to my experience on the PS4:

    Pros:
    + Great graphics for a console game (especially PS4 Pro)
    + Story is interesting (but I didn't like it as much as the first one)
    + Gameplay is as good as ever
    + A lot of replay value (if you're a trophy hunter)

    Cons:
    - No multiplayer (may not be a big deal to some but I like multiplayer).
    - Story not as great as the first (or as Uncharted 4)

    If you enjoyed the first game then you will enjoy this game. It's just unfortunate that this game was delayed by a year and released in Fall 2016 (I feel that the game isn't getting the attention it deserves because of all of the great games coming out).

    A sequel to the 2013 reboot of the series, Rise of the Tomb Raider follows Lara Croft as she ventures into Siberia in search of the legendaryA sequel to the 2013 reboot of the series, Rise of the Tomb Raider follows Lara Croft as she ventures into Siberia in search of the legendary city of Kitezh which promises the secret of immortality. She soon runs into a mysterious military organization known as Trinity, which intends to take the secret for their own nefarious means.

    While I personally quite enjoyed the 2013 reboot many fans were understandably disappointed with the increased focus on combat rather than exploration and puzzle solving. This follow up certainly redresses the balance by not only introducing better stealth mechanics, but also through the inclusion of optional challenge tombs that each offer a reward or upgrade for solving the contained puzzle.

    There are still plenty of faults with this game of course, from the unnecessary hand-holding, intrusive cut-scenes and poor melee combat but as with the first title in this rebooted series I enjoyed my time with it and I think fans of the older games will find this more to their liking as well.

Lo he jugado hace nada y de verdad que me ha parecido que recupera gran parte de lo que la saga era en sus inicios, más exploración y menos combates.

    La historia sin ser la mejor está bien, y genial ambientado, en cuanto al apartado gráfico y sonido, excelentes, cada vez me gusta más este reinicio de la saga.

É bem interessante e simples as evolução da árvore de habilidades, oq permite uma fácil compreensão de seu funcionamento. Os gráficos estão muito bonitos e ocorreram poucos bugs. Porém, achei a história um ponto fraco do jogo, não me deixou tão curioso ou não gerou uma sensação grande de mistério sobre tudo que estava acontecendo.Aparentemente, alguns eventos aconteceram muito rápido, de forma que não foi possível se apegar tanto a algumas personagens ou entender de fato os atos delas.
