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
Now the cherry on top is that I got an email for 3 months of free Netflix from Playstation, and it's not just for new subscriptions. I enetered the code and got £23.97 added to my Netflix account. :) (18 minutes ago)
I just couldn't believe what I was experiencing playing Astro Bot. I found all the cameleons just by gazing at the environment. Now I'm getting all of the bots and going for the plat. :) (22 minutes ago)
I am so chuffed with Playstation atm. Firstly I played Astro Bot using my VR headset and the experience is nothing short of sublime. I haven't felt the awe of a kid playing a video game in a long time (28 minutes ago)
