The 10 best Tomb Raider games


 Tomb Raider, and its adventurous heroine Lara Croft, celebrate their 25th anniversaries this year. Square Enix has marked the occasion by releasing the Tomb Raider: Definitive Survivor Trilogy, which includes the most recent Tomb Raider trilogy, as well as every piece of DLC for those three games.

While the three Tomb Raider games from Crystal Dynamics are, indeed, excellent, they don’t represent the full scope of Lara’s adventures over the year. That’s why the Tom’s Guide team has selected 10 Tomb Raider games that best represent what the series can do. These games are full of devious puzzles, difficult foes and unforgettable settings, and most of them spin a pretty good “lost civilization” yarn along the way. Here are the 10 best Tomb Raider games to revisit — or experience for the first time.
