PS4 owners have had to wait for a year before finally being able to play Rise of the Tomb Raider, but at least they are getting the full version, including all its DLC and a few bonuses.We have prepared a bunch of videos of Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration so you can see what to expect, so don't lose any of your precious time and check them out inside!
As usual the full text of the review is available in the French version of the site, but we still translated our verdict and the plus / minus section.
We had a great time playing Rise of the Tomb Raider. It's a solid sequel of an already quite good title, and the new gameplay features help to alleviate the feeling that it's just more of the same with different environments. It took us around 15 hours to complete the with a 73% completion rate, with many things left to do in the open world zones. With a better story and deeper characters, this would have been one of the best action/adventure releases, but as it is, it's still a very solid and enjoyable title to discover for all PS4 owners, even a year after its release!
On the plus side
+ Takes the solid basis of the reboot and makes it better
+ The open worlds and their many activities
+ The crafting really makes us go and explore
+ Some environments look amazing
+ A bit more puzzles than before
+ Some interactions with NPCs
+ All DLC content and some bonuses
+ Smoother than on Xbox One
On the down side
- Aliasing is still visible
- Predictable and pedestrian story
- The Croft Manor chapter is disappointing
- Uncharted 4 has set the bar high when it comes to visuals
like in dark souls where i mapped run/dash/roll to one of the paddles so i could run (b-button) while controlling the camera (right thumbstick) at the same time. (2 Hours ago)
you can feel the difference in material quality in every part. 3 different swappable thumbstick heights is also nice, and the programmable and swappable trigger pads beneath are also nice in some gams (2 Hours ago)
@droezelke: i had the standard one pad. i liked it, but then it was in an (ahem..) accident. So i had to get a new one anyway. the elite is really nice. d-pad is very good. good grip (2 Hours ago)
@Melmoth: Standard. The elite is too expensive. I can buy multiple games for that money :-) (2 Hours ago)
@droezelke: you use the standard controller or the elite? (3 Hours ago)
...the fiasco and dishonesty of the Xbox one reveal. (3 Hours ago)
In any case, Xbox one X is my main platform now. Network is good, performance is excellent, it's very quiet, downloads are pretty fast, controller is great. MS did a good job after ... (3 Hours ago)
