As Lara Croft is constantly in search of treasure, Tomb Raider developer Crystal Dynamics is constantly in search of sales. After hitting the one million mark right out the gate on Xbox platforms, the game's fortunes will likely improv...   read

Review: Rise of the Tomb Raider: Endurance Mode

I'm surprised how much mileage I've gotten out of Rise of the Tomb Raider. While most developers are keen on stuffing multiplayer into every single project, Crystal Dynamics did the right thing but nixing it in Rise, instead adding in a muc...   read

Why are the only interesting parts of Rise of the Tomb Raider's story buried in audio logs?

Pretty boy Steven Hansen enjoyed  our Xbox One Game of the Year Rise of the Tomb Raider, saying that it was "perfunctory Hollywood boilerplate, down to the set up for the sequel, but competently done." I agree with just about ever...   read

Review: Rise of the Tomb Raider

I sometimes forget that Raiders of the Lost Ark came out in 1981. Its breezy pulp adventure quality carries only obvious signifiers of its era (like, Nazis), and the repetition of these tropes act as enough hand waving to the point where Un...   read

Rise of the Tomb Raider actually has tombs

The final "Woman vs. Wild" Rise of the Tomb Raider video has been released and it focuses on the thing many thought the reboot lacked: tombs what to raid. Lara actually does way more archaeology this time around, it seems.   read

Rise of the Tomb Raider launch trailer features an original song by Karen O

Here is what's in Rise of the Tomb Raider's season pass

It was just last week that we learned Rise of the Tomb Raider would have a season pass. We likely weren't meant to know quite yet, as it was a "oops, it suddenly showed up on a retailer's website"-type of thing. At the time, all that w...   read

Set aside almost 40 hours to completely beat the new Tomb Raider

A fair contingent of game-players equate the amount of #content in a game to whether or not it's a "good deal." It's a mindset that has always struck me as odd. I'll take a streamlined shorter game over an unfocused sprawl any day (ironic, ...   read

Rise of the Tomb Raider trailer shows off hot grappling hook action

Lara Croft probably has some sort of death wish. Mountain climbing can be good exercise and recreation, but I don't think anybody in her right mind would swing from a grappling hook, launch 30 feet, then catch on a vertical rock face with a...   read

Rise of the Tomb Raider on Xbox 360 looks surprisingly not bad

Microsoft's really leaning into this whole "Rise of the Tomb Raider is an Xbox exclusive for a little while" thing, so the game's coming out on both Xbox One and Xbox 360. But, last-gen is kind of an afterthought, and it's getting hand...   read

Lara doesn't need to murder everyone in Rise of the Tomb Raider

Rise of the Tomb Raider is a little easier on Lara (but still kicks the shit out of her)

Lara Croft has never been the best archaeologist. Carefully digging for hours so as to not damage an artifact wouldn't make for a very good video game. Still, there's a disconnect when she knocks over human skulls that are perched on a ledg...   read

Extended Rise of the Tomb Raider video is way better than the E3 trailer
