Default Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Complete Franchise Breakdown

I can't seem to stay away from this site. It's like a curse.

Anyway, some nice folks on Reddit who are just getting into the series were wondering about the different incarnations of Tomb Raider and Lara Croft. Rather than explain it every time, I decided to undertake the ambitious task of listing every bit of consumable (That is, watchable, readable, and playable) Tomb Raider out there.

Food/drinks, toys, clothes, and other merchandise is not included. Visit Tomb Raider Merchandise for in-depth looks into Tomb Raider memorabilia.

Without further ado, this is the document.

I know Tomb Raider superfans don't need it, but maybe you can show this to friends who are just now getting into the franchise.

Take care and be kind.

That's a lot of work you've put in there. Well done. I'm sure it will be very informative for those who need it.

Btw, what's wrong with The Beginning comic that makes it not canon?

Thanks so much!

I've never read it myself, but apparently, The Beginning has Alisha know "Uncle Roth," when in TR 2013's documents and in the post-TR 2013 comics, she never met "Mr. Roth."

That's really excellent work! If you don't mind my critiquing;

- "Consider skipping all of the novels, since they're not exactly high-quality literature" -- I actually really enjoyed reading "The Amulet of Power." I wouldn't skip it necessarily because of the quality (which is more so subjective), but maybe because it's not canon; it's a take on what happened between tr4 and AoD

- maybe mention that AoD was rushed and because it wasn't received well the game series was rebooted.

Thanks for posting the link to that website, I'm searching for the Lara collection booklet scans which were posted here some time ago, and that website some of those collection items listed.

Thank you LateRaider for including my tumblr in your post. I'm happy that people find it helpful in some way.

@Dustie, if it helps, I have the 1998 Lara Croft Merchandise Booklet uploaded here or the 1999 booklet here. I can also provide the German booklet here.
