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
The upgrades I want don't exist yet. I want a 240hz g-sync display at 1440p+. (7 minutes ago)
This is the best CPU I've ever owned for sure. I mean, obviously, but also relatively. 2600K is/was a workhorse. (9 minutes ago)
And in some cases.. like WD2.. I get dips below 60 FPS but with g-sync I kept those settings instead of turning shit down because it's smooth anyway. (10 minutes ago)
Also play at 1440p.. but no I don't play every game at max settings. As Melmoth was saying, you generally get diminishing returns on some things in terms of performance vs. results (11 minutes ago)
@droezelke: Not every game, no.. but I play all my competitive games at high framerates. I only get like 90 FPS in BF1. (13 minutes ago)
@GriftGFX: You only upgraded 1 part once in 7 years, and you play at 144fps at max setting? (20 minutes ago)
I think g-sync also extends the life of a GPU, since unstable frame rates aren't really an issue. (1 Hour ago)
