Rise of the Tomb Raider review

Rise of the Tomb Raider is the sequel to the reboot that came to Xbox 360, PC and PS3 a couple of years ago and was then re-released on Xbox One as a definitive edition.

This game sees Lara after a hidden source that grants eternal life before some other bad people get their hands on it. Okay the story isn’t exactly something we haven’t seen...

Okay so I know Tomb Raider Underworld has been out for a year now but I was never fortunate enough to get a copy – until now. So if you haven’t played the game yet, is it worth it? Watch and learn.

Tomb Raider Underworld

A couple of weeks ago I got an exclusive playtest of Tomb Raider Underworld and got to speak to some of the team behind the game. Since then it’s been embargoed but now I can give you all the juicy info. So let me tell you what I saw. Running on an Xbox 360 with a very decent framerate, the game opened with a usual shot of Lara’s behind looking over a temple as clouds swept across the sky with dismal rain falling from the skies. So weather effects are a new feature and even clouds cast shadows across the...
