    Games Like Tomb Rider - TOP List

    It would be tough to find a more cult-classic title than Tomb Raider. Lara Croft's adventures have changed the gaming landscape forever. Not only did they introduce a full-fledged female action protagonist, but they also gave the players a ton of fun throughout more than two decades-worth of games. Eidos' game series influenced many other developers to develop similar ideas for a cinematic action-adventure game. In this piece, we will take a look at some of the best games like Tomb Raider.

    Games Like Tomb Rider - List

    The Rise of the Tomb Raider

    Lara Croft began her tomb raiding in 1996 in the first game of the series. Subsequent titles took her to various regions of the world where she had to face insurmountable odds to prevent all sorts of apocalypses from happening. The series was revived twice - the first time after the catastrophic reception of  Angel of Darkness. The sixth Tomb Raider game took significant liberties from the series mechanics and atmosphere. The subsequent Legend series returned to the game's globetrotting action-adventure roots. The second revival happened in 2013 when Square Enix took over the rights to the series from Eidos and reimagined Lara Croft as an inexperienced archaeologist, making her first steps towards becoming the Tomb Raider the players know and love.
