I'd say to avoid rise, but give it a try on shadow with exploration dfficulty on max and combat level on minimun if you don't like. But for consistency reasons, you should get rise, but since you didn't like the 2013 one... it's hard for me to think what I can say to you...But for me the sequels updated some things in relation to exploration but at the same time the character and the story is beyond horrendous.

Rise won't change your mind but I know some people who didn't like the first 2 and loved Shadow. It's also one of the games with the most amount of tombs/puzzles and there's definitely less shooting, so I bet Shadow is more your style of TR game.


This.

Rise was more like 2013, only more tombs and less combat. Shadow was more like classic TRs, what you want.

I actually liked Rise and Shadow ever more. I thought both were superior to the Reboot.

However, the story is terrible and pointless. The plot doesn't get anywhere, Yamatai quickly gets forgotten, Lara has the personality of a 3 year old girl, the characters are 2 dimensional and the script is badly written - everything is over the top melodramatic.

To me, Rise is so different to 2013 I think you'll love it. I treasure that game, it gave me a lot of chills and there are some really neat cinematic moments. The story kept me going but it was the gameplay that really got me addicted to it.

I'd say give it a shot, Rise improves on aspects of 2013. The combat is toned down and swimming is brought back. Not like the true underwater swimming in Shadow, but it's there.

Tombs are much better in Rise as they are bigger, but they do still have the one puzzle thing you need to solve.

Storywise it doesn't reference 2013 at all, it's as if it didn't happen. Also it brings back Lara's parents again like in the movies so if you hate that then yeah, the plot is very focused on Lara's father.

Overall I'd recommend you at least give it a shot if you haven't already.

As a Gamer, I encourage you to buy it and give it a go. It's a great action-adventure-TPS-stealth-exploration game.

Buy the 20th Anniversary Edition that includes all the content. This version has a great replayability factor. You Can Replay Any Chapter you want and with any setup or card you find best. Its a great way to pratice your gameplay skills like stealth, speedruning, aiming and even explore different kinds of approachs/strategies. You can also practice these skills playing Lara's Nighmare and Cold Darkness DLCs.

Lara's hair looks amazing in this game, Not only the hair but the face work of textures and expressions in cutscenes looks good.

One thing that I noticed that Shadow lacks in simulation of her hair getting wet. At least I played it in my two PC Setups (1st - CPU Phenon X6/ GPU RX 560/ 8 GB RAM --- 2nd - CPU RYZEN 7 2700/ GPU RX 590 / 16 GB RAM) and couldn't see that. Or I need to pay more attention.:-)

But in Rise, her hair gets wet.


I really love Rise of The Tomb Raider. I took almost a year and a half to buy it before it was released as a XBOX exclusive.

If you have a decent PC Setup buy it. Wait for a great offer in Steam and buy it.

Personally, I really disliked TR13, thought Rise was pretty meh and LOVED Shadow. I think Rise did improve upon TR13 in terms of gameplay, but it still wasn't enough for me. I was mostly bored by it and the story didn't help at all. So I would personally jump straight into Shadow, which I think is the best TR experience we've had since the Classics.

Rise paved the way for many of the good aspects of Shadow imo .

Say what you want about Rise but that game was crucial in the gradual process of improving TR2013's gameplay . I hugely doubt that Shadow would have this considerable focus on tombs (the focus on PTT and the "social aspect" was still bigger though , duh) and this great underwater swimming -just to name a few- if it came directly after TR2013 .

For instance , TR1 needed two games to get into TR4 : the game that had the Classic formula at its absolute best and most fleshed out (imo) .

That's what I think anyway .

True. I donít care for Rise, from what Iíve played and because of the story, but it did help get us to Shadow. Plus, it delivered the best/most impressive graphics in the series (graphics, not art direction).
