Time Magazine (Nov 30, 2015)
But when you’re roaming the wilds alone and unhurried, Rise of the Tomb Raider doesn’t feel like a game about shooting people, much less questing for the holy whatzit of life extending awesomeness. It becomes a series of sublime trials that feel more like the insane feats of survivalism you might find chronicled in a Jon Krakauer book. Play the game on those terms, accepting its dalliances with rote gunplay, and you’ll experience it as I did: as one of the best things I played all year.
Game Revolution (Nov 09, 2015)
Rise of the Tomb Raider took aim at perfecting not just its own series, but modern action games as well, which is an ambitious undertaking to say the least. The past decade has seen the genre jump, shoot, and blow stuff up real good with games like Resident Evil 4, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, and Dead Space. Each redefined what a well-balanced 15-hour experience could be by delivering a compelling narrative, tight gameplay, and outstanding world building. Rise of the Tomb Raider bests even those classics with a character that resonates like no other. Even if it took nearly twenty years for that to happen, this is an adventure worth replaying with a hero who’s unforgettable.

The Tomb Raider reboot was a very good game, and the sequel has managed to improve upon it in every single way. The story is engrossing, the characters are believable and the actual gameplay is smooth and easy to slip into. Rise of the Tomb Raider is one of the best games of the year, and deserves to be played by all. I am left looking forward to Lara’s next adventure.
IGN (Nov 09, 2015)
Rise of the Tomb Raider raises the bar set by Lara’s last outing with a rollicking adventure story, strong villains, gorgeous vistas, and smart puzzles – go off the main path to find the best stuff in dastardly optional tombs. Though the mandatory combat doesn’t distinguish itself with challenging enemies unless you crank up the difficulty, Lara’s newfound versatility on the battlefield makes fighting a lot more fun. Once again it’s Lara herself, however, who steals the show, her complex ambitions and hardened resolve showing new sides to a character who has well and truly grown from survivor to the most fascinating action hero in video games today.
Meristation (Jun 01, 2016)
Se han añadido nuevas mecánicas -esos tramos acuáticos-, se han pulido otras y se han ampliado propuestas como las demandadas tumbas, que destacan por cantidad y variedad entre ellas. Una aventura que seguramente no revoluciona el género, pero que realiza de manera excelente casi todo lo que propone: tendremos saltos variados, exploración, puzles, sigilo, tiroteos y momentos hollywoodenses, todo bien mezclado y sin grandes fisuras a destacar. Recupera parte de la esencia del pasado y sabe usar los conceptos de aventura moderna sin caer en una ensalada de disparos constante ni mucho menos. Cierto es que los momentos de disparos podrían ser mejores en varios detalles y que algunos de los rompecabezas de la trama principal podrían ser más exigentes, pero en términos generales el estreno Next Gen de Lara Croft es la demostración de que la nueva Lara está aquí para quedarse mucho tiempo.
Critical Hit (Nov 09, 2015)
Crystal Dynamics have effortlessly done the impossible with Rise of the Tomb Raider, crafting a sequel that is superior to their reboot in every single way possible. It’s a bigger, more expansive experience that has a captivating narrative, engrossing gameplay loops and an absolutely stunning presentation. Rise of the Tomb Raider is one of the best action games ever crafted, and a generational leap forward as the series looks towards the horizon. Lara Croft is in good hands.
Video Chums (Jan 17, 2016)
The love put into its production is clearly apparent as you play. If they keep this level of quality up, Crystal Dynamics will be sure to impress old and new Tomb Raider fans alike for years to come.
The Games Cabin (Dec 15, 2015)
Simple and predictable story and minor technical flaws aside, Rise of the Tomb Raider feels like a tremendous success on the part of Crystal Dynamics. They gave us a game that feels like more of Tomb Raider 2013, and yet improved on the formula in every way, from the character development to the graphics and even the gameplay.
GameCrate (Nov 09, 2015)
While 2013’s Tomb Raider reboot was great, fans of the series were pining for more tombs to explore and relics to collect. Crystal Dynamics addressed that and then some in Rise of the Tomb Raider, improving on its upgrade system, telling a fun story, more puzzles, and adding bears, tigers, cheetahs, and more packs of wolves to kill and skin. Just like we remember.
Atomix (Nov 09, 2015)
La más reciente aventura de Lara Croft incluye ajustes básicos a su gameplay que la convierten en una experiencia disfrutare y memorable. Amé las tumbas, amé sus puzzles, amé su exploración, amé su acción, amé su combate. Aunque no todo es perfecto en Rise of The Tomb Raider, es un paso en la dirección correcta para la franquicia.
The Game Hoard (Jan 05, 2019)
The Rise of the Tomb Raider continues to build off the series reboot’s foundation. The Siberian mountains are ripe for exploration and manage to have distinct and varied locations despite being coated with snow, the action scenes are explosive and require quick action to overcome, and the gunplay allows for different approaches and the impact of ability upgrades and crafting can be felt, making your efforts to uncover secrets and collect materials pay off noticeably. A clear improvement over 2013’s Tomb Raider, it does still feel rather similar to it at times. Since that game was well-designed and interesting though, Rise of the Tomb Raider is as well, and it’s tighter all around with a more character-focused story and better implementation of its survival and action mechanics.
Games Finder (Apr 23, 2017)
With a great number of new features and enhancements over what was already an impressive franchise reboot Rise of the Tomb Raider has solidified itself as a staple game in the genre.
The Jimquisition (Nov 11, 2015)
Thankfully, the main game itself is easily worth the price of admission. A gripping story in spite of its cliches, with an expanded serving of the gameplay that made Tomb Raider such a wild ride, Rise of the Tomb Raider is a damn fine sequel that does everything a sequel needs to do. What’s more, it truly cements Lara’s new adventures as a series with a solid future, and I’m excited to see where Croft and Trinity go next.
Giant Bomb (Nov 09, 2015)
A bolder, more capable Lara Croft returns for an adventure that's more varied and fun than Tomb Raider has seen in years.
80 (Nov 09, 2015)
Rise of the Tomb Raider je přesně tím, co slibuje v samotném názvu. Lara působí dospělejším dojmem a hlavně se vrací zpátky do hrobek, které jsou pro celou sérii klíčové. Její nové dobrodružství je prakticky ve všech ohledech lepší než předchozí díl a je vidět, že se Crystal Dynamics vydali správným směrem.
Game Rant (Nov 09, 2015)
Fortunately, Crystal Dynamics has put together one of the most riveting action/adventure titles of this generation. Even then, Rise of the Tomb Raider is a game that people will play, love, and be done with, and that’s okay. It’s said to take dedicated completionists over 30 hours of playing to gather all of the hidden treasures, survival caches, golden coins, and weapon parts, which makes for a solid bang for consumers’ hard-earned bucks. Plus, who doesn’t want to fight a bear?
80 (Nov 13, 2015)
Rise of the Tomb Raider ist eine gelungene Fortsetzung des Reboots, die dank einer größeren Auswahl an atmosphärischen Gräbern und kleinen Rätseln inhaltlich wieder mehr für traditionelle Schatzsucher zu bieten hat. Darüber hinaus begeistert das jüngste Abenteuer von Lara Croft mit atemberaubenden Kulissen, gelungenen Tempowechseln, starken Sprechern und einer cineastischen Inszenierung, die von wuchtigen Soundeffekten und dynamischer Musikuntermalung gestützt wird. Leider wirkt die Hardware der Xbox One stellenweise überfordert und die Steuerung präsentiert sich nicht mehr so reaktionsfreudig wie im Vorgänger. Zudem fehlte Crystal Dynamics der Mut oder der Wille, stärker von der Reboot-Schablone abzuweichen und das Action-Adventure weiterzuentwickeln – auch wenn dies bedeutet, sich von Mechaniken zu verabschieden und alte Zöpfe abzuschneiden.
TrueAchievements (Nov 09, 2015)
Crystal Dynamics had great success in rebooting Tomb Raider back in 2013. Rise of the Tomb Raider takes another positive step forward and continues the development of Lara Croft while providing another solid adventure. Unfortunately, the combat controls feel clunky and the story stretches an homage to Indiana Jones almost to the breaking point. That being said, there is a good bit of fun to be had in climbing, swinging, and exploring, but in a fall populated by heavy hitters, Rise of the Tomb Raider can probably wait for a more fallow time in your gaming calendar.
The Guardian (Nov 11, 2015)
As it is, Tomb Raider’s transformation from archaeological puzzle adventure to action blockbuster is complete. The result is a crowd-pleasing game, which offers only glimpses of what could be if this team were only allowed to take some braver risks with Croft’s next expedition.
