Lara Croft has made quite a name for herself in the video game world since her debut in 1996, and with the success of the 2013 reboot, Tomb Raider, the hype for the sequel has grown to mythic proportions.
Rise of the Tomb Raider is a roaring adventure that offers fast-paced sequences that have players scrambling to survive; hidden tombs whose puzzles become increasingly challenging; a beautiful semi-open world for exploration and discovery of documents, artifacts and challenges; a deeper and darker storyline than what is usually expected in adventure-driven games; and a dangerously formidable protagonist.
Although elements of Lara’s latest quest seem at times questionably familiar, additions and modifications have undoubtedly improved the game in almost every way. Rise of the Tomb Raider is an epic thrill ride to be sure, but there are still criticisms that can be made.
