Rise of the Tomb Raider is a game that is the baine of ps4 fanboys. It was the cherry on top of the already impressive lineup of games for the Xbox one. It was also the killer sign by Microsoft over Sony. Why? Because last Tomb Raider proved to be one the best games ever made. This year title sequel is even better in every way.
Everything from higher pixel counts and physics to even more heart pounding gameplay and thrills. Those who played the first one will no doubt fit right in place now. But if you didn’t play it, it will not take long before you get the” hang of it”, no pun intended.
On top of the impressive graphics and gameplay the extent of the world is bigger as well. Everything from the draw distances to the length of the game has been upgraded. Back from the past is the tombs, traps and puzzles. Basically everything you remember growing up seeing and experiencing in the older Tomb Raider games is back, just more grander than it has ever been.
When you add everything Microsoft has done this year together( the Elite system, the Elite controller, new and faster OS, price drops and bundles, backward compatibility, all the exclusives, etc, etc)and all that has gone on for the last 3 month or more running into this up coming holiday season what you see is pure domination. A console that has done more for its fans than any console has ever done in history. It’s the truth people, whether you want to admit or not, it’s the flat out truth! It’s not even close when you list all the things Microsoft has done for its people over what the Ps4 has done thanks to it’s fans. These same fans that bought those consoles with the promise of “greatness” and “gaming only” to get more hype without content, misdirection and lies. I am blessed to have such a game console and leader behind the ranks like Phil Spencer. Well done Microsoft, well done!!
