VGChartz’s Issa Maki: “Rise of the Tomb Raider remains one of the most solid experiences of the 8th generation. The game is leaps and bounds above its predecessor, setting the bar so high its successor fell short of eclipsing it. Sadly, the exclusivity deal with Microsoft held the game back from achieving the sales it deserved. By the time Lara made her way to PlayStation 4, Uncharted 4 had already released, garnered higher review scores, and in seven months outsold what Rise would sell in its lifetime. Since the 11 million 2013 sold was considered a failure by Square Enix, I highly doubt the 7 million Rise managed was what the company wanted to see.”
