Anyone had success playing any of the Tomb Raider series on Linux?
I'd particularly like to be able to play Last Revelation, on my boyfriend's computer which uses Ubuntu.

You would most probably have to run Windows on a virtual machine inside of Linux for it to work.

Try wine (http://www.winehq.org/) or VMware Server (http://register.vmware.com/content/download.html) (for vmware you need a copy of windows anyway so it might not be a good idea)

The ONLY solution is DOS or Windows Virtual Machine.

For Tomb Raider 1, DosBox will work (though not with hardware accelerated graphics). Wine might be a good solution, Cedega (http://www.transgaming.com/index.php?module=ContentExpress&func=display&file=index&ceid=29) might also work (it's like Wine, only better with copy protection and it costs money).
