    Default Tomb Raider Series

    Which game in the Tomb raider series has been your favourite?

    To me it's all about the first one. It was my very first Tomb Raider game and i had no idea what to expect. I'd only seen pictures of Lara Croft and hadn't really read much about it.

    I had no ida what i was doing as the whole 3D perspective was weird and i couldn't control her properly, lol! I also remember the feel of isolation that the early games had and the feeling that you were completely on your own. Don't get me wrong that isolated feeling is in the newer Crystal Dynamics games but nowhere near as intense as in the early games.

    I've liked every one of the Tomb Raider games but the lowest point for me was The Angel Of Darkness even though i did enjoy you and finish it! I think the controls were the clunkiest and most awkard that the series have ever been. I thought Crystal Dynamics did a great job of turning the series around after the bad press that Angel Of Darkness received. They seem to have got the series back on track however i do think it's about time they started to make the games a little longer as Legend and Underworld are just far too short.

    What's your opinion?

    My memory is quite poor, but I believe that was the first level of TR2. The remake of TR2 recently was Anniversary (featuring the T-Rex), which was a great remake I was pleased with.

    I had TR1-4 when I was younger, but dodged AOD and Legend due to things like time completion. Games nowadays just lack content and length, just for the purpose of download content.

    Underworld was a fantastic game, especially the music, Amanda's Ship being my favorite likely. It was just too buggy and unfinished though, and rushed out for the sales, they're the two main flaws.

    The T-rex was in the first one wasn't it? I'm sure of it. I'm sure Anniversary was the remake of the first one.
    I'm gonna dig the first one out and see if that was the first level where you slide down with a couple of tigers coming at you. I can be forgiven as i am older, lol!




    *hangs head in shame*

    Yep you're right the bit were you slide down was the first level of TR2. The first one is still my fave though!

    Yeah I think the second one was the hot fave, so they redid it. Albeit something to do with the T-Rex being in it.

    Out of the list, I played and own all the Tomb Raiders except the last two.
    TR Legend was a bit disappointing regarding length but the abilites and gameplay made it the best so far in my opinion.

    My vote goes to Tomb Raider III, I loved every bit of the game, Lara's house was quite interesting to explore and try to unlock all the secrets in it. The story itself was great, traveling through various places with different environments with various enigmas to solve makes it a very long and enjoyable game. Still one of my favorite PSX games of all time.

    I feel like replaying the game by just talking about it. :P

    Ruka, trust me, Anniversary was a very good remake, I don't see why it can't be said as being better than TR2. It'll last you about 15-20 hours altogether. Whereas Underworld perhaps a bit less due to what was taken out and used as DLC...

    They are both great, but Underworld was just too buggy that even could many times prevent you from completing it.

    Haven't you played Legend? You should do and you can pick it up really cheap now.

    So did they cut levels out of Underworld for the PS3? I know the PS2 version was watered down but i didn't know they cut stuff out of the PS3 version and had it as download content. Is it just 360 that got the DLC?
    I loved the soundtrack to Underworld, very epic sounding!

    Yeah, I missed Legend 'cause I heard it was like 7 hours or so. And yeah, just the 360 and PC get the extra chapters which one of them is said to be decent.

    Tomb Raider, one of the best game series' ever created.
    My vote goes to TR4, I really liked the whole storyline and how Von Croy was possesed e.t.c
    After TR4 though, it definatley has to be TR3, the London missions on it are awesome.
