Which one was it for you? I'd say it's between Underworld, AOD, TR4, and chronicles.

Killercowz

AOD, the whole game was dark, TR5 and TR4 only had a few parts of the game that were dark.

Mikky
31-12-11, 18:57
Well, I would say TR2012, because that clearly is the darkest TR, but since that isn't out yet, I'll say AoD.

aod
and TR3. dont know why, i always founds something dark and mysterious about it

31-12-11, 18:58
TRU, AOD, some of TR4, a tiny bit of TR5.

But it's all intentional in different ways.

tomekkobialka

Definitely TR4.

Tomb Raider 3 on PlayStation.

It's so dark that most of the time you can't even see your path.







Oh? Is not that kind of "darkness" we're talking about here? :/

I would say the three darkest games are:

1. TR4
2. TR5
3. AOD

TR3 on PS1 :yik:

^ Haha, that's not what he meant by dark. :p

I still can't play this level

If we're talking literally no lighting: TR3 on PS1. :cen:

In terms of atmosphere, definitely AoD. Hopefully TR9 will top that. :tmb:

I'm surprised no one has said TR2 yet. The creepy footsteps of humans around every corner, giant spiders, weird ambiance in China, creepy music tracks... :eek:

Other than that, AoD and TRU are pretty dark as well. I'm playing TRU for the first time right now, and a huge albino spider just launched at me. It made me jump out of my skin... :o

The first part of Meditarranean Sea is dark as HELL...heim. :D

Ew, it was like controlling an unresponsive tank.

Definitely Last Revelation.

SO you never beated TR:AOD? :yik:


I think AOD is the most darkest.

matrix54
31-12-11, 22:45
The Angel of Darkness for sure.

The minute the game turns on MURDER. :vlol:

4, and part of 5 come close, and 9 looks like its's about to take second place, but nothing can top AOD - in EVERY aspect of darkness.

Except tomb raider 3 on PS1, without flares, of course. :eek:

Killercowz
31-12-11, 22:48

Haha no. :D

I've beaten AOD hundreds of times, I always skip that level though. It's one of my favorite Tomb Raiders.

I've only ever beaten that level once. :p

I'm glad I'm not the only one acknowledging Core's stupid mistake of making PS1 TR3 so ****ing dark. :( :cen:

It's unbearable on the PS1, I have to use my flares every five seconds.

That's the main reason I bought the PC version.

Angel of Darkness

But TR5 IS kinda dark too. They are all sitting around discussing Lara and her death and their memories

Angel of Darkness


Thank you. This. :D

TR2 is very, very dark, story-wise and in terms of its themes. Second to that... TRLR, for the general mood towards the end, tied with Anni for its mood. :D
Last post of 2012! Countdown is now! :p
EDIT: HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!! :D

Definitely AOD. TR4 had some grotesque stuff, and TR5 has a pretty dark sequence with Young Lara. But otherwise that's about it, really.

!Lara Croft!
01-01-12, 00:56
AOD Figuratively.
PS1 TR3 Literally.

Greenapple968
01-01-12, 01:59
In my experience TR3.

Assassin13
01-01-12, 02:20
Obvious answer would be AOD.Even though 2012 TR will beat it for sure

mepsipax
01-01-12, 03:40
I'm actually shocked nobody but me mentioned TR2... I think its the darkest of the series by a country mile. Especially in terms of plot (in that sense, I think its also the most violent, what with the dagger and all..). Finally certain levels are just incredibly tense and eerie; 'Floating Islands' is surely the most out-there, weird and dark thing the series has ever done...

Lightest: Tomb Raider 2 on PC :D

TR3. If you've ever played it on PS1 you'll know what I'm talking about.:D

As for "darkest" in the "adult heavy" sort of way: TR4. (do you people remember the nature of Sett's "prison"? or how about the Cairo section?)

You mean you're not the only one who's eyes are screwed up or you're not the only one who doesn't know how to adjust settings on a TV.

You mean you're not the only one who's eyes are screwed up or you're not the only one who doesn't know how to adjust settings on a TV.

Even so the default gamma levels require you play it in a dark room, otherwise glare ruins it, no matter how high you have the brightness on.


Anyway its got to be AoD hands down.

Tomb Raider III & The Last Revelation.


And the new TOMB RAIDER....I expect it to be dark as hell.

AoD, for sure.

peeves
01-01-12, 16:09
TR6 is obviously the darkest TR but all of core's games have dark plots in TR. And the new TR 2012 won't be dark at all.

I, Tomb Raider
01-01-12, 17:04
AoD, for sure.

Seconded. :tmb:

I'm sorry, but could you please explain your rage for the new TR game? Every time you say something about it, it's negative. I don't understand how you can hate it so much when we don't even know much about it. :confused:

Legend of Lara
01-01-12, 17:07
And the new TR 2012 won't be dark at all.

Now, having doubts about TR2012's quality is perfectly reasonable.

...but it looks like the darkest TR game yet. That is unmistakable.

Afonya
01-01-12, 19:30
Definitely AoD, but other TR games have their own parts/sections that are dark too.

xDanny 117
01-01-12, 23:54
Probably Angel of Darkness, followed by TR4.

Phlip
01-01-12, 23:56
I don't see why anyone wouldn't say AoD. :confused: That's clearly the darkest TR.

MattTR
02-01-12, 00:13
AOD, followed by Chronicles.

I don't see any others as "dark". :o

02-01-12, 00:18
AoD wins this thread, we all know it.

OMG I KNOW ;_;

AOD is definitely the darkest if you're not counting the reboo.

No offense,but peeves' statements cannot be taken seriously so dont bother to understand his point of view...

Anyway AOD is the darkest one. Funny enough, AOD was literrally the lightest TR :vlol:
