Rise of the Tomb Raider

Right, so I was one of those crazy people who got this game as soon as it came out because of the first one (I am talking about the remakes, yes), the first one was so good it blew my mind.

So I decided I needed the sequel, which I had been counting down until the release like a bit of a nerd, but I accept it. 

I loved this game, seriously incredible graphics, immersive plot – following on from the success of the first one and free-flowing gameplay.

I love these plots that are all mysterious, they do make me pretty happy. So this game was no different. 

With all the positives come negatives, well the glaring one for me was how quickly I was able to finish the game – Always a disappointment when you can finish a game in no time at all.

Secondly, something I realised, if you hadn’t played the first one for some reason, you would have been seriously lost with this one, loads of backstory etc. Just something to consider if you are looking to buy this game.

Pippa Ratings:

Gameplay – 9/10
Presentation –  9/10
Enjoyment – 3/5
Other – 2/5

Final Score: 23/30


This may not seem fair because it is such a good game. That being said, this game can’t make up it’s mind. Are you open world or are you a linear game?

That being said, I will be first in line for the third Act of this epic Drama.
