Decommissioned during the Cold War, a dormant weapons research base has been breached, unleashing a mysterious affliction into the Siberian wilderness that transforms men into blood-thirsty, mindless killers.

Why are there more zombies? Because it’s the zombie level. Tomb Raider is not the game you turn to for such content. It’s possible there’s something to like here, but it’s a weird fit with the base game. In the end, Rise of the Tomb Raider’s short and zombie infused DLC fell short of expectations.

Rise of the Tomb Raider: Cold Darkness Awakened has a lot of promise, focusing on the strong stealth and puzzle mechanics that made the core game so popular, but unfortunately it fails to leave a lasting impression. The short adventure is confined within a small area that has limited replay value and no rewarding values in general.

Cold Darkness is another fun DLC release, but again it’s one that won’t last players long. If you prefer to play these extra modes over and over again, it’s considerably worth checking out. Yet that’s the problem; these feel as if they should have been in the core game or in an extra menu or bonus mode at launch. The combat in Tomb Raider is thrilling and engaging, but it’s not ultimately what people seem to play Tomb Raider for.
