Rise of the Tomb Raider‘s first story-focused DLC, Baba Yaga: The Temple of the Witch. This $10 DLC takes you on a hallucinogenic ride of the supernatural. This add-on leaves the comfort zone of Rise of the Tomb Raider, by going for a horror-themed story that was once just a Russian folktale. It’s a neat diversion to what you’ll find from Rise of the Tomb Raider‘s base game, but doesn’t deliver on the promises it initially teases with.
Crystal Dynamics’ Rise of the Tomb Raider released late last year on the Xbox One, and the game has now made its way to PC. It’s functionally identical, but visually superior to that of its console counterpart. That may not surprise anyone, but this sequel surprises at nearly every turn with refined combat and improvements to the core gameplay that simply does everything right.
Following Rise of the Tomb Raider’s highly successful release exclusively for Xbox One and Xbox 360, Square Enix® today announced that the game will be available for Windows 10 and Steam on January 28, 2016.
Lara Croft has been a household name for years now when it comes to the gaming world. I remember fondly playing the first game on Thanksgiving Day and running into the T-Rex in shock. It was a magical moment for a young kid, one that has stuck with me ever since, and the series has hit those same notes for better or worse throughout its franchise life. From humble and exciting beginnings to some misguided entries in the series. Throughout the games, once thing has always endured, Lara Croft. While Crystal Dynamics decided it was time to reboot the series a few years ago, people felt a significant change. Moving more towards combat and featuring light elements of actual tomb raiding and story elements, it was a huge surprise to some, disappoint to others, and left most wondering where the series would go next. Rise of the Tomb Raider is here to satisfy both fans and give long time players that sense of discovery once more.
While not a technical powerhouse for PC or the new generation of platforms, Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris is a beautiful follow-up to Lara Croft and The Guardian of Light from 2010. The classic feel of Tomb Raider is well represented, where the focus was more on puzzles, and less on shooting and story. And whether playing solo or with others, is enjoyable romp that respects your time.
