Rank the Tomb Raider Games, Now Including: Shadow!
 
I think Shadow's been out long enough for people to find where to put it on their order of favourite to least favourite.

Here is mine. :)
  1. Angel of Darkness
  2. Tomb Raider 3
  3. Tomb Raider 1
  4. Tomb Raider 2
  5. Rise
  6. 2013
  7. Chronicles
  8. Last Revelation
  9. Legend
  10. Anniversary
  11. Underworld
  12. Shadow

Yeauxleaux 31-10-18 18:43

1 - TR3
2 - TR2
3 - TR4

The above change around every week depending on my current mood, but invariably they're the top 3.

4/5 - Anniversary and TR1 tied
6 - Legend
7 - Shadow
8 - Chronicles
9 - AoD (would be much higher if it was fully realised)
10 - Underworld (would be higher if I wasn't a mortal arachnophobe)
11 and 12 - 2013 and Rise tied. If both games had a combination of 2013's conceptual/story ideas and Rise's gameplay, both would be a little higher.

Although I enjoyed the newest trilogy, nothing come close to the classics and the CORE games. Their half finished vision of AoD is still better than anything Crystal have delivered upto this point!

sheepman23 04-11-18 03:43

I've answered this question so many times now, and I'm pretty sure my rankings change a little bit every single time... :vlol:

1. Tomb Raider III
2. Tomb Raider
3. Tomb Raider II
4. The Last Revelation
5. Anniversary
6. Rise of the Tomb Raider
7. Chronicles
8. The Angel of Darkness
9. Legend
10. Shadow of the Tomb Raider
11. Tomb Raider 2013
12. Underworld

This is the first time I've ever ranked TR2 lower than #2. I've finally just accepted the fact that TR1 and 3 do everything better than 2. TR2 may have the best 6-level stretch in the entire series (Tibet and China), but that's not enough to carry the entire game and its big flaws with combat and puzzle scarcity. It's still a great enough game that it rises well above everything below #3, however.

The Last Revelation also seems to be pretty cemented at #4. It's good stuff, but will never really reach the quality of the Top 3 for me.

Anniversary and RotR are proof that Crystal can make good (but not great) TR titles and I won't hear otherwise.

After that, it gets messy. Let's face it, Chronicles is not a good game. Angel of Darkness is definitely not a good game. And Legend is basically a novelty-value side adventure that lacks any kind of substance despite being kind of fun. All three of these titles are not good, but all three maintain the feel of a Tomb Raider game well enough to the point where I will probably replay them in the future.

I'm unclear on where Shadow stands at the moment since I'm in the middle of a playthrough, but so far I'm disappointed.

And then there's TR2013 and Underworld. TR2013 isn't one of the worst games I've ever played, but it has so few redeemable qualities that I really can't see myself picking it up again. Underworld... Underworld is just terrible. There's not a single level of the main game that I could say I really enjoyed. I liked Beneath the Ashes a lot, but it's an XBOX360 EXCLUSIVE. Not a good sign when your DLC one-ups everything in the entire game.

That's nothing compared to the user above me whose list in the last ranking thread before this one featured Rise at the top spot :whi:

I'll never understand such dramatic changes , I get that people's rankings change with mood/taste/second thoughts etc , but people who suddenly jump between extremes (from deep love to severe loathing and vise vera) have always puzzled me . It's like me suddenly ranking TR4 last and AOD first , it makes no ****ing sense whatsoever :vlol: My list has mostly remained the same over the years . A game might go 1-3 spot higher or lower, I might make more ties etc , but it's mostly consistent .

JsotoTRSaga 23-11-18 00:13

I'm not falling for that^

By the way, it's my opinion and everybody's list is subject to change drastic or not. Tastes change. Tastes evolve.

Is it bad to love Classic Tomb Raider and prefer it over ROTTR? It is not. It is my opinion and lately many people tend to share a similar opinion.

I have made lists similar to this one so the lists you are referring to are probably very old, old enough that I still had faith in the reboot when I made it.

Which I've acknowledged . Just expressed bewilderment over the drastic changes (in general) and questioned the philosophy behind them. It's something that I've applied to myself , I tried to think of a logical reasoning that would abruptly make me place TR4 which has always been my favorite game at the bottom of my list , and I couldn't find one :ponder:

As in , how could a game I once viewed the absolute best for years suddenly (not gradually) become the trashiest and most insufferable ? :ponder:

Anyway , that's just a hypothetical question , an observation . I'm not seeking any answers Į\_(ツ)_/Į
