Rise of the Tomb Raider

Postby Tyler » Sun Jun 25, 2017 11:15 am

I wanted to buy a game to stress my video card. This is on sale for $24, normally $60.

A little over a year old at this point. It's a sequel to the Tomb Raider reboot that I think Wags played.

I only played it on the Xbox, not PC. Was fun though.

I played maybe an hour yesterday and really liked it. The game reminds me of Far Cry, but not completely open-world. There are areas you can explore, but the story seems to drive you in a particular direction and in a specific order. There is a pretty extensive leveling/crafting system that I wasn't expecting. You need to hunt animals to get hides and gather supplies in order to built weapons, gear, etc.

My current objective is to make poison darts to kill a bear.

I played like 3 hours of this over the weekend with my new Xbox One S controller. I'm having a lot of fun exploring the game and finding the hidden gems (literal gems). The story isn't anything original, but the gameplay makes up for it.

I've been doing a lot of backtracking when I unlock a new weapon/tool so I can complete stuff I had to skip over
