Tomb Raider games - Best to worst

Sort by: Showing 11 items

1. Tomb Raider: Chronicles - PlayStation
My ultimate favourite. (I think.) But still, cannot really choose between TR III and this ^^'' I don't really have a reason why I love these so much, but maybe it's because they have so many good levels imo. And they're all over the world, not just in one country etc. I really loved the young Lara level in this. Had some great horror elements. Anyways, I like all the levels in this (well maybe not the last one...) Ofc there's also that I played this TR (along w/ #3) the most when I was a kid, and because of that there's always a place for them in my heart. :)

2. Tomb Raider III: The Adventures of Lara Crof... - PlayStation
My second shared #1. This game just has great classic feel to it. And I love her outfits in this. Loved the jungle (India, South Pacific) levels the most :) The only level that I actually hated, was the London levels...
This is the Lara that I know, and what she should've stayed as.

3. Tomb Raider - PlayStation 3
Luckily, this looks more promising. (*edit* AND IT WAS!)
Even though Lara here is a bit of a copy of Catniss from Hunger Games..

4. Lara Croft: Tomb Raider Anniversary - PlayStation 2
The game IS beautiful. Especially on PS3 version (which I have).
Basically, a remake of the first Tomb Raider. With the exception of some levels, this game is very enjoyable and playable. And it still has the "classic" Lara, even though she has changed A LOT.

5. Tomb Raider II - PC Games
Another popular Tomb Raider game (among most TR fans).
I didn't like this as much as other fav classics, but it's still fun to play.
And the best of all, it has the classic Lara!

6. Tomb Raider: The Angel Of Darkness - PlayStation 2
MANY TR fans hate this one. I can see why. (Don't like it much, either.) THEY CHANGED THE LARA CROFT WE KNEW AND LOVED. And they brought a new playable character in it. Yeah I know, it's kind of okay, but... These are Lara's adventures. Not some other's. This is a playable game, alright, but not one the best ones... But what's with the ONE PISTOL thing?!

7. Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation - PlayStation
Well... Most people who like Tomb Raider, love this game. Especially.
I've never understood why. Maybe it's the reason why I hate (maybe not 'hate' but) this game: It's just too long. Too many levels.
And sometimes, they're too hard. Too tricky. And I got some traumas from this because I played it so young and got scared xD Also, too much sand.
Anyways, it's still better than the 'new TR'...

8. Tomb Raider: Underworld - PlayStation 3
Yeah yeah. The game looks good, but that's all there is. I still don't like the "new" Lara. And her new outfits mainly suck. The new story sucks too.

9. Tomb Raider - PlayStation
I do have to say that I still don't own this game myself.
Played it at a friend's house when I was a kid, but don't remember that much. It's just a bit too pixelated & old for my liking... Although I love the torso boss at the end. It was scary in this (original) unlike in Anniversary...
I like scary Tomb Raider. The Great Pyramid level was that.

10. Tomb Raider: Legend - PlayStation 2
Stupid Barbie. And even more stupid new outfit... -__-
The worst & weakest TR ever.

People who added this item 31  Average listal rating (17 ratings) 7.1  IMDB Rating
11. Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light - PC Games
...Okay, I take that back. Or maybe not.
Legend and THIS are the worst TR games ever.

Seriously... I absolutely hated Tomb Raider III. On another ironic note I thought the London levels were the best part of the game.

Well that's the complete opposite, lol... xD

This list is great. However, when you said, "Even though Lara here is a bit of a copy of Catniss from Hunger Games," on Tomb Raider, she is not copied at all. If anything, Suzanne Collins took the idea from Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix. But she didn't, obviously, because the first Hunger Games book came out it 2008, and it didn't reach it's popularity of today until close to the ending of 2011; Tomb Raider was well in development before then, and the Hunger Games film didn't come out until March 23, 2012. I seriously doubt Crystal or Square took anything from that movie.

Thanks for your comment! I agree with you, I should have stated that "the copying" works both ways... ;) I just noticed some similiarity and thought what the heck. x)
