Fun and a great sequel
Reviewed in the United States on January 20, 2021
Rise of the Tomb Raider is a sequel to the 2013 Tomb Raider reboot and is honestly a good improvement over it's predecessor from the graphics being much more stunning to improvements on gameplay. To start off if you played the reboot this plays pretty much the same the controls are the same a lot of the mechanics are the same it's just been improved in a few areas like more specific upgrades to wider variety of weapons to choose. In terms of story if you didn't play the 2013 game you aren't missing out on much while there are a few nods to the adventure that happened in the 2013 game Rise of the Tomb Raider is very much contained in it's own story with lots of things that don't hinge on context of what came before. Anyways I can definitely recommend if you liked the 2013 game or if you're just looking for a fun action-adventure game to play.
