Hei!

I love the tomb raider series but since I have played all of them I would like to knew if there are any other games similar to tomb raider that I can play. I love puzzels but not to much action anf fighting. Could final fantasy be a game for me? or is it to much fighting?

P:S I`m playing resident evil now and I have also played prince of persia D:S

Best regards
Sandra Croft

tbh i've never found any game thats like TR but TR, resident evil is good but prob more action oriented than you'd like, FF is basically random fights with shiny cutscenes dry.gif

maybe one of the "mysts" but i stopped playing after the first. its not a 3rd person game mellow.gif

for a bizarre game for your web browser, try the "hapland" games on this page:- click me
all i can say for that game is click on everything tongue.gif and i hope you can think "outside the box" wink.gif

you may like to take a look at some of the lucasarts games too, point and click adventures! "sam and max", "day of the tentacle" plus a few others, they are old now but if you can get the dosbox application running, should be no problem.

What about playing custom Tomb Raider levels? There are some great ones out there. If you like Tomb Raider with lots of exploring and not too much fighting, my Imprisoned Spirits - Next Generation should keep you happy for a while.

You can find out about it here:

Beyond Good & Evil and Project Eden are two that jump right out at me. Project Eden was made by Core Design, so it's got that going on.

Hei!

thanks for all the tips. I just have to convince my brother to let me use his computer, but since I get to play
on his playstation I donīt think it will be to much problem. I`m using my fathers computer now but he doesnīt let me downlouds things because he is afraid of virus. So I have to persuade my brother but he doesnīt stand a chance against a
tomb raider lover. But I will finish resident evil first though and trying to get all the secrets in AE but it seems impossible. Iīm
stuck in midas palace in the pillar room, canīt get that relic. Maybe I get it in time for christmas.

Thatīs all from me, thanks again and wish me luck with everything.

I looked at Stellas walkthrough and realized that I have done it all wrong. No wonder it didnīt worked. But I wonīt mention what in case I spoil anything.

the Silent Hill games are alot like Resident Evil but they are more puzzle based imo. Silent Hill three is cool and has a good replay value.

Errr ... I did play the games such as Halo and Halo 2. They were kind of like Tomb Raider, but you only get to carry two weapons (on Halo) and later three weapons (on Halo 2).

Actually, I've never seen a game quite like Tomb Raider. That's why I'm always replaying the originals! tongue.gif

If you're really desperate, though, try Resident Evil or Shadow of the Collosus. I haven't played these personally, but they have recieved some good feedback.

they say duke nukem games are like tomb raider, but with more combat, as resident evil games are simillar but dwell more on the "horror" aspect. also there's a game called "space bunnies must die" which is constsntly compared to tomb raider
I wish this would happen in real life :-]

rule I live by:if it's worth doing, it's worth overdoing

Uncharted is a definite Tomb Raider-like game.

The newest Prince of Persia game is a mixture of TR and Fable 2.

Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine is a lot like the old 90's TR games. It has some real clunky controls, and it might not work well with XP. There are still demos out there, though. It looks old and has a lot of quirks, but I enjoyed it at the time.
Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb, as mentioned, is quite a bit like the newer TRs. The controls almost made it unplayable for me, but if you are used to modern console controls you shouldn't have a problem.

As somebody said, there really is nothing else quite like Tomb Raider. And everybody has a different idea of what you mean by "similar to Tomb Raider." I take that to mean it has to have some jumping and climbing and at least a little puzzle solving, and most definitely has to be a 3rd-person view, with a character you can see.

Star Trek Deep Space Nine The Fallen is more of a shooter, but you can jump and climb a bit, and there are a few TR-like puzzles. More exploring than puzzles, though. It is old and might have trouble on even XP.

The two Max Payne games are similar. More shooter than anything, but there are some puzzles and a few platforming parts. And if you're bad at the fights it sticks plenty of ammo and health packs around to make it easier to finish.

The new Lego games are far more platform-like than Tomb Raider, but I enjoy them in a similar way. There is a lot of running, jumping, climbing and puzzle solving. Although there is a lot of fighting, it is simple and cute. For some reason I like them better than other platformers like Ratchet & Clank.

Prince of Persia The Sands of Time from around 2003 is a lot like Tomb Raider. Lots of traps to navigate, and some decent puzzles here and there. The fights go on forever and can be dull if you aren't into that, but afterwards there is usually another obstacle course to climb and jump around. The two follow-up games looked better, but weren't as good in my opinion.
I really don't like the look of the new 2008 PoP. The hand-drawn style looks cheap, and it is mostly climbing around on ceilings collecting dots. Like a dull 3-D Pac-man. And lots of back tracking. But there is a demo. It might be worth a try.

Uncharted is also really heavy on the fighting, and the platform parts are pretty rigid in that you usually know exactly where to go and what to do, and often can't even move in any direction but the right way. Still, if you have a PS3, it is worth a look.

InFamous is also a PS3 exclusive, and it has tons of jumping around and climbing on things. it is probably more like Grand Theft Auto or the old Mafia, but it has some TR qualities.
