Last year, around March, I started what would become the first playthrough of what I now call LawfulGeek Plays. It was Tomb Raider: Underworld and it was the first game in a plan to play through the entire classic series—starring the original Lara Croft that is—in reverse order, starting with Underworld and ending with the original 1996 Tomb Raider. Continue reading One Year of Gaming and Back to Raiding
A couple of months ago I started a series called Classic Play Tomb Raider, later renamed Let’s Play Classic Tomb Raider, because it makes it easier to understand. The plan was simple: play through all the Classic Lara Croft games in reverse order—because I was already playing Underworld when the idea popped in my head! I want to give a special thanks to Kelly M. from The Archaeology of Tomb Raider for pointing out a flaw in my naming: the LAU Trilogy isn’t considered Classic Tomb Raider. It’s why now I say Classic Lara Croft when I explain the series! Continue reading Let’s Play Classic Tomb Raider – Halfway There!
Two weeks ago I decided I would play through all the Classic Lara Croft games, starting from the last one Underworld–which I’ve been recently told isn’t considered a Classic TR, nor are any of the other two LAU Trilogy titles–and I posted the first of my playthrough videos. I hoped you enjoyed watching me die repeatedly.
For your further enjoyment, below you’ll find the complete playthrough. I finished the game and even played it again to record the first segment–it’s why I don’t suck as much on the first couple of locations. I’d already gone through there. But I still die a few times so don’t you worry.
Also, to the THREE evil, evil, heartless people who vote on the poll…I will have my revenge on you someday! But in the meantime I will play through the appalling Tomb Raider Chronicles and the atrocious Tomb Raider Angel of Darkness.
But I still have time before I need to play those. Next week I’ll be going through Anniversary and then Legend. It’ll be awesome to compare Anniversary and the original Tomb Raider when I finally get there! I might even stream some of the gameplay soon, so keep an eye out and make sure to follow my twitch channel!
As I wrote the past two articles about the Tomb Raider series and where it’s going, I got the urge of playing the old series once again, to relive the fond memories of playing these awesome games. I’ve already started with Tomb Raider: Underworld, the last in the original Lara series.
While I played the game and wrote this week’s article, I decided not to stop here and instead keep playing all the classic Tomb Raider titles in reverse order. I’ll start with Underworld, then Anniversary, Legend and then move on to Last Revelation—skipping the two crappy games I hate: Chronicles and Angel of Darkness—and finishing it all with Tomb Raider 1, 2 & 3.
This will be a weekly series I call Classic Play, and below you can see the first of these videos. As I decided to do this after I started playing the game, the Underworld series picks up from the Croft Crypt level.
Check out the video below, sit back and enjoy watching me die over and over to random stuff and stupid mistakes! Considering how much I screw up this might as well be a blooper run!
If you like it and would like me to play Chronicles and AoD as well, let me know in the comments or the poll below!
