Tomb Raider (AKA: Lara Croft: Tomb Raider) is an action adventure & puzzle game series developed by Core Design from United Kingdom and published by Square Enix (formerly Domark and Eidos Interactive) from Japan. The first installment of this series attracted a lot of interest from gamers around the world soon after it was released.
Tomb Raider 1 came out in 1996. At the time of 3DCG (3D computer graphics) technology was not developed enough, it already had everything a successful game should have, especially the superexcellent 3D graphics and game operations at that time. Tomb Raider 2 added a lot of character actions and weapons, and started to turn to focusing on action adventure from adventure puzzle (in this aspect, Tomb Raider 3 developed this trend to an extreme).
In a few years since Tomb Raider 1 was released, its sequels Tomb Raider 2 and Tomb Raider 3 gradually lost many players accumulated by Tomb Raider 1 as a result of the boring game plot and gameplay. Tomb Raider 3 did make great progress in the aspects of graphics drawing and enemy AI design, and first introduced the vehicles, also had not just a single-threaded story mode any more. But it adopted the mechanism of a sudden death, and paid too much attention to the action play, which resulted in the big rise of game difficulty and some other problems that caused the old players’ dissatisfaction.
Tomb Raider 4 brought us back to the claustrophobic atmosphere of Tomb Raider 1. Both its title (The Last Revelation) and ending hinted the end of this game series. Due to the great improvement of rendering engine, thorough game plot, mysterious Egyptian mythology, ancient King cemetery, exquisite puzzles design, and more, Tomb Raider 4 became a well-received classic game work that got a great success finally.
It is very rare to see a game that can continue to get rid of the stale and bring forth the fresh and continue its series to the fifth work, let alone in such a short time span. Compared with previous works, Tomb Raider 5 offers much better graphics but just passable sound effects and voice dubbing of character conversations, and lacks a coherent storyline. In addition, this work comes with some obvious technical problems. For example: debugging errors often make the game crash, image clipping jitter, video fragments can not be played properly.
The brand-new Tomb Raider 6 finally changed its game engine. As a result, this work is far beyond any previous ones in this series in terms of graphics performance. It made revolutionary improvements to this classic action game series that had enjoyed a good reputation for many years, rather than just making some perfunctory changes on the original basis. It absorbed many classic elements from the successful games at that time, perfectly fused various fun of action games, and promoted that to a higher level. In addition, because it enabled the popular multi-character system that were widely used in action adventure games, Tomb Raider 6 effectively made the game plot take place from different sides, so as to get a more rich game connotation and performance.
For more editions of Tomb Raider, AppNee simply doesn’t have the energy to go through them all. But I do think if you’re a fan of Tomb Raider series of games, you won’t miss any one of these works, even if it’s so old that you have to play it with a DOS emulator.
