With all the Tomb Raider games 75% off, I was wondering if any of them are worth it? Never played any of them, so thought I would ask.

Cannot go wrong with Legend or Anniversary. If you dont mind older graphics then the older oens are fun to.

One series I am TERRIBLE at but enjoy playing :P

Yap legend or Anniversary. They are pretty good even The Guardian of Light is nice. I haven't got the chance to open up my Underworld. Backlog games...

The original 1996 Tomb Raider is an absolute classic, but you need to be ok with the graphics.

Only tomb raider to avoid, is probably angel of darkness, but that's what others would suggest. Legend and Anniversary are good. I'm playing through Underworld atm. It's pretty good imo. The only tomb raider game I haven't played is chronicles. I don't own it yet, but I do own double copies of the others.

Yeah, go with the modern trilogy - Legend, Anniversary and Underworld. All of them are great action-adventure games and they'll look good on a PC.

After that, you can go with Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, which is a spin-off of Tomb Raider, and a excellent co-op game.

I bought Tomb Raider: Underworld a few Steam sales ago, and I can't complain. I made it to level 4 or something. I take it the games are only $2.50, for that amount of money you can't go wrong. I think I paid $4.99. Good graphics for an older game, and decent platforming.

I also bought Anniversary and Legend, but I haven't gotten around to playing those two.

The modern trilogy is worth having. Anniversary, Legend and Underworld. Anything before that I'd say no. When they came out they were good but that was like 15 or so years ago.

Yeah I should add if you've never played the old games in the past, you probably wont like them now. I loved them when I was younger so I love playing them now for nostalgia

The first five and Legend, Anniversary and Underworld are all great games. Just skip Angel of Darkness.

Agreed, Angel of Darkness was terrible.

Underworld was a good attempt at something that could of been awesome.

It was a good game, although it seemed slightly easier than the previous. There are only a few underwater levels, but they were great.

It also seems a little shorter than previous ones.

Graphically it was pretty nice as well, performed pretty stable too.

I'd definitely recommend it for 75% off.

I've played all of them, Legend is my favorite. Underworld and Anniversary are good too, but more difficult and also very occasionally glitchy in terms of platforming.
