Lara Croft's experience of the supernatural on Yamatai has been covered up by the organization Trinity. In order to prove she is not insane Lara becomes obsessed with finding the truth behind myths around the world. Rise of the Tomb Raider follows Lara Croft and Jonah Maiava as they search Siberia for the ancient city Kitezh, built by the Grand Prince of Vladimir in the 13th century, which Lara believes holds some truth behind immortality. In a race against Trinity, a well funded organization interested in the supernatural, Lara must survive against humans, animals, and the environment in order to find the truth behind the myths and become who she was destined to be.

Solid follow up. Basically the same gameplay but with new environments and a great story. Solid action adventure.

Rise is a good sequel to another really great third person action adventure game.


Its gameplay and combat system is really intriguing and the weapon system is still as great as it was in the previous game.


But I feel that the story wasn't as good and honestly the main bad guys felt a bit cliche for my liking.

Controls are weird, story is bland.


Don’t recommend.

While the story and extras may not impress, the gameplay in Rise of the Tomb Raider holds up through a long and varied adventure. There are lots of tools to play with and utterly jaw-dropping locations to see, fleshed out with great level design. Rise of the Tomb Raider is right on par with the last game, so if you enjoyed Lara’s previous excursion, there’s plenty to look forward to here.

Crystal Dynamics has taken the best aspects of Tomb Raider and maintained their quality while also adding a new and interesting story into the mix. Rise has a great variety of different weapons, equipment and skills, and the way you play the game will change as you grow. One of the big problems is the lack of replayability after completing the campaign. Unless you have a deep need for more gameplay, the Expeditions mode will be fun for a couple of rounds and then you probably won’t look back.

Despite the feelings of deja vu sprinkled throughout the 10-12 hour campaign and the flawed crafting system, Rise of the Tomb Raider is still a hell of a roller coaster ride, featuring fantastic gunplay, exceedingly clever puzzles, and a breathtaking world to explore. It may not rise above its 2013 predecessor, but it certainly meets it in the upper echelon of the third person shooter genre.
