Hi everyone! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif

All this talk about TRL has really got me in the mood for adventuring. So much so that I think I might dig out my old TR's and replay them all.

But I would be grateful if you lovely people could maybe suggest any Tombraidery type adventure/exploration games that are worth a go?
I know TR is kind of in a league of it's own, but anything similar that I could try?

Oh and no RPG's I can't get on with them - they hurt my brain :confused:

Most RPGs hurt my head getting all technimakal and everything. :D
Though I would recommend Tales of Syphonia for the GameCube/PS2... Real-Time battle system, and it's pretty idiot proof.

Tried and tested it myself ;)

As far as Tomb Raider Style, platformers... Well Legacy of Kain : Definance (oddly enough a game using the same engine as Legends) is pretty cool.

Galleon, is an interesting game. Ageing now, but the work of Toby Gard and Paul Douglas both Ex-TR1 guys after they left Core in 1996.
Definately worth checking out because it's VERY similar to Tomb Raider.

other games generally fall in and around the genre style.

Jak & Daxster, Rachett & Clank, Sphinx, Beyond Good and Evil, etc.. they're all pretty similar and good in thier own right.

Just look around really is what i'd suggest.
Oh and for a fun RPG that isn't brain taxing...

http://www.lotgd.net it's just too damn addictive!

Prince of Persia - very "Tombish" at times - especially the second one. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif

A classic Tombraidery type adventure/exploration game that comes to mind atm, is Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb.
