* CommonKnowledge: If you ask most gaming fans to name some PlayStation exclusive games, chances are the first ''Tomb Raider'' might be mentioned. While ''II'' and ''III'' were console-exclusive to Playstation at the time, the first was also on SegaSaturn; And not only that, was technically released on the Saturn ''before'' the Playstation.

** [[TombRaiderChronicles Chronicles]] was made for quick buck and Core openly admitted doing so.
** Tomb Raider: Legend was very divisive in this matter. While a critical smash, some fans were still off put by the changes to the series.



** Angel of Darkness was a mess from top to bottom.
** Tomb Raider: Legend was very divided, while a critical smash, some fans were still off put by the changes to the series.
** [[ContinuityReboot 2nd reboot]] [[Videogame/TombRaider2013 of the series]]

** [[ContinuityReboot 2nd reboot]] [[Videogame/TombRaider2013 of the series]]series]]. Which goes a step further with having ''own sequelity'' in form of Rise of the Tomb Raider, which was poorly received even among people enjoying the first game of the new continuity.

** There is still quite sizable part of fandom that considers any game after original from '96 a blasphemy and pointless money-squeezing.
** Around 3rd game, game critics started to point out how the plot and game mechanics are repetitive. [[EvenBetterSequel 4th game took that to heart]].
** GaidenGame, which managed to unite [[BrokenBase the whole fandom]] against it. Some consider it even a case of NiceJobFixingItVillain.

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: Several fans of the Core Design games were ''not'' happy with Crystal Dynamics' ContinuityReboot with [[TombRaiderLegend Legend]] and the subsequent drastic changes to Lara's personality and backstory. In addition, some feel this way about the ''second'' ContinuityReboot.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: The debate over Lara's effect on female video game characters will probably never be settled. Some say she was a pioneer in an era when female main characters (especially in action games) were exceedingly rare. Others say she did more harm than good through her over-sexualization.

* DesignatedHero: A criticism of the later games on the [=PS1=] is that Lara turns into this, with the enemies in the games including not just the usual criminals and animals that stand in her way, but also police officers and security guards.

This eventually led to RonTheDeathEater, described below.



* RonTheDeathEater: Lara herself gets this a lot. Fanworks tend to be a lot more liberal with the AlternateCharacterInterpretation mentioned above, many of them choosing the "borderline sociopath" option or [[AdaptationalVillainy even worse interpretations.]] (Evil versions of Lara tend to be far more common than good ones in this area.)

** This is also very visible in [=TopCow=] comics, where Lara is AntiHero at best and easily qualifies for VillainProtagonist in few issues.

* NarmCharm: Again, some of the dialogue. Especially ''[[VideoGame/TombRaiderLegend Legend]]'' contain several instances of narm charm by dint of dealing with the story of how Lara deals with the death of her mother.

** But it's very easy to point the Dork Age for the marketing of the games. Everything done before [[VideoGame/TombRaiderTheLastRevelation The Last Revelation]] was just low-brow campaign based entirely on sex-appeal and extremely distasteful adds. Just check for yourself how the game [[http://i.imgur.com/KEa7OAk.jpg was advertised]] [[http://i.imgur.com/UsxHnez.jpg back in]] [[http://i.imgur.com/LEzrYYV.jpg the day]].
