Rise of the Tomb Raider Review



Is Rise of the Tomb Raider a game worth diving into? I think so. I definitely enjoyed it and am confident anyone who enjoyed the 2013 title will also enjoy this one. It is a good example of an action-adventure game as well, with a healthy amount of puzzle gameplay present as well. Some of the puzzles can be confusing, but none of them are too difficult.

The graphics look good, but the performance was not that great for me. Turning down some settings will probably help there, but I cannot name a specific in-game option to really help. Having the optimized drivers installed does help, so be sure you have those. The story is definitely good and also does a good job of providing a fitting context to this new Lara Croft and the previous title. The gameplay does a great deal right and still has a good amount of depth to its mechanics, putting it above just 'right.' Really it is a game worth playing, just watch out for some possible performance issues. I do want to say that I am fairly confident a lot of those issues will be resolved with future game and driver updates, but that is just my speculation based on how I have seen other games improve post-launch.
