How about the story in these TR games? Do they have good stories to tell?


Well, it depends. I've never played TR before and I didn't like the story. Puzzles and platforming are great.

Not really. The plot is essentially the same for all three games - Lara visiting a bunch of random locations with no logical ties to each other for artifacts from the same culture. Mexico and Thailand part of Norse mythology? Really? Underworld is the worst when it comes to the story feeling like a direct rehash of the previous games.

On top of that there are a couple subplots related to Lara's character that are intended to give her more depth, but only come off as shallow, cheesey and cliche. Don't get me started on the Doppelganger character who is something out of a bad fan fiction.

The voice acting is pretty good though.

They're good, but a little inconsistent. Anniversary is by the best and Legends the most lacklustre. Legends was okay at launch, but since then has been surpassed by every other TPS/action game on the market and just feels dated. Anniversary, while looking slightly worse, has great level design and better gameplay.

Underworld is a mixed bag. It looks great and has some decent gameplay, but takes a lot of steps backwards after Anniversary, such as regressing back to Legends method for secrets, and it also suffers from a few bugs and bad camera angles.

Yes. There's some funny time order, though. Play them in order Tomb Raider: Legend, Tomb Raider: Anniversary, Tomb Raider: Underworld.

There's an overarching story begun in TRL that's finished in TRU. The XBox 360 exclusive DLC for TRU adds some much-needed closure, though.

I liked the characters in TRL, but also liked the solitude in TRA also. Be sure to consult Lara's notebook frequently in TRA to hear Keeley Hawes voice as much as possible.

TRL might not match up with current FPS/TPS games, but it's not supposed to. It's a platformer, with some interesting swimming sections, good combat, frustrating motorcycle sections, and some well done platforming. I got vertigo in Tokyo, felt the pressure of water as Lara was running out of air underwater more than once, and was thrilled by some of the boss battles.

It's fun exploring the Mansion as a separate level/game in TRL and TRA. Lara gets some great costumes, too.

If you've played TR1, then be aware that TRA is a remake/updating of it.

Sorry I was being stupid...

I'm not sure if those games aged well, and I haven't played most. Maybe it'll be good to prepare for the new one(I know its a reboot).
