Most video game reviewers don’t usually agree on anything and that’s precisely what is happening, even before the release date of the “Rise of the Tomb Raider.” Reviews arriving this morning, painted an idea that Rise of the Tomb Raider, as one of must-have titles in the open-world games.
The game takes players to Siberia in pursuit of the secret to live of eternity. The game is developed by Crystal Dynamics and published by Square Enix and Only Microsoft’s Xbox One and Xbox 360 consoles can only get “Rise of the Tomb Raider” this year. The company is hopes the move will increase sales ahead of the PS4 by locking down access to the title to its platforms, specially this coming season.
The settings and plot of the story of this game have strong resemblance to the story in the previous game. It doesn’t add much perspective for Lara’s obsession in hunting down artifacts. Apart from a series of big plot moments, cutscenes in “Rise of the Tomb Raider” are short, and players are generally allowed to keep moving during dialogue between characters.
According to the review, this game doesn’t blend up the combat that much, it doesn’t have a much more fascinating setting. Siberia is said to be extremely more thought-provoking than the somewhat gloomy island setting of “Tomb Raider.” Not only the “Rise of the Tomb Raider” has a more variety of environments, but it also gives a lot of option on what to do.
Game Informer’s Kimberly Wallace admitted that exploring tombs offers more excitement in contrast to the past game. According to her, the anticipation and surprises of exploring tombs (only required a few times in “Tomb Raider”) is one among major improvements.
Wal-Mart and GameStop, will soon begin selling “Rise of the Tomb Raider” for $59.99 tonight while other retailers will sell the game tomorrow morning.
“Rise of the Tomb Raider” will be available to PlayStation consoles and Windows PCs in 2016.
