Top Adventure Games: Games Like Tomb Raider and Uncharted
Top Adventure Games List: If you are like me and you like exploring, searching for ancient artifacts, mystery, travel and archeology games, then you came to the right article… Here you will find one of the best list for adventure games. Playing this games its like you travel and exploring, If I forget any of them you can just post a comment and included. Games like Tomb Raider and Uncharted is one of my favorites…
Note: Some of the games are for PC, Play-station or X-Box. First things come first. I will start with the Indiana Jones games, but not because of the perfect Graphics and the scenario of the games, but for the respect that I have to George Lukas and to his hero Indy. Without Indiana Jones, games like Tomb Raider and Uncharted there would never existed. Lara Croft, the female archaeologist of the Tomb Raider series, was originally designed as a man, but was changed to a woman, partly because the developers felt that the original design was too similar to Indiana Jones. The video game series Uncharted is also very heavily influenced and inspired by the Indiana Jones. The main character, Nathan Drake, also shares many similarities with Jones himself. So the correct title for this article must be games like Indiana Jones instead of games like Tomb Raider and Uncharted
Top Adventure Games List: Games Like Tomb Raider and Uncharted
Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine:
Though some archaeologists criticize Indy‘s methods as befitting a “looter” rather more than a careful worker of precious sites, many have adopted the popular figure as something of a standard-bearer for their profession. Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine takes place in 1947 when the Nazis have been crushed, the Cold War has begun and Soviet agents are snooping around the ruins of the Tower of Babel. Canyonlands, Babylon, The Tian Shan River, Shambala Sanctuary, Palawan Philippines, Teotihuacán Mexico, Olmec Valley Guatemala and Meroe Nubian kingdom its just some of the places that you will explore within the game.
Indiana Jones and the Emperor’s Tomb:
Join daring archeologist and adventurer Indiana Jones as he travels to 1935 China to prevent a powerful artifact from falling into evil hands. Indy’s latest globe-spanning adventure takes you from the jungles of Ceylon and underwater palaces in Istanbul, to the deadly streets of Hong Kong and beyond. For me one of the best Indiana Jones games!
A newly conceived, adventure-filled plot that takes franchise hero Indy around the globe in search of a priceless artifact. Linear, but entertaining levels overrun with enemies to fight and mild environmental puzzles to solve. Of course, all sorts of evil forces are also on the hunt for the artifact, and so Indy travels from San Francisco to Nepal, Central America and Istanbul in the late 30s to retrieve the item first.
Lara Croft is the female Indiana Jones! Its one of the best games for exploring and searching for ancient artifacts. Actually I was plan to add this game first on my top adventure games list, but Indiana must come first! Tomb Raider 1 The story opens with a prologue in Los Alamos County, New Mexico, when a nuclear test causes a great explosion which exposes an ancient device buried beneath the desert surface. The tale is about Atlantis, the glorious continent that governed by three rulers, Tihocan, Qualopec, and Natla.

Each ruler bore a third of the Scion, and they united their pieces in order to activate the Pyramid… Locations-Countries: United Kingdom, Peru, Greece, Egypt…
Tomb Raider II:
One of my favorite game on that time. The story of Tomb Raider II surrounds the mythical Dagger of Xian, a weapon which was used by an Emperor of China to command his army. By plunging the weapon into its owner’s heart, the weapon has the power to turn its bearer into a dragon. A flashback reveals that the last battle which was fought with the Dagger ended in defeat when the warrior monks of Tibet succeeded in removing the knife from the Emperor’s heart. The Dagger was then returned to its resting place within the Great Wall… Locations-Counties: Venice, China, Tibet, Offshore & Underwater Levels.

Her quest culminates on a “Lost Island”—possibly Atlantis…
Tomb Raider: Underworld:
Tomb Raider Underworld picks up where Legend left off. Lara Croft continues her search for answers.

Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light:
It’s not technically part of the Tomb Raider series. Rather, it’s a smaller game that blends traditional exploration and puzzle solving game. When I first saw this game I thorth that it will not be like the Tomb Raider series games, but I was wrong Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light its worth like as any other Lara Croft adventure game. The hole plot of the its on mexican aztec temples…

But a darker threat awaits as she is forced to harden herself against killing people in order to fight a group of malevolent mercenaries who seek to kill her and her companions.
Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune:
Uncharted its the modern Indiana Jones and its one of the best action games for me. A 400-year-old clue in the coffin of Sir Francis Drake sets a modern-day fortune hunter on an exploration for the fabled treasure of El Dorado, leading to the discovery of a forgotten island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. The search turns deadly when Nathan Drake becomes stranded on the island and hunted by mercenaries. Outnumbered and outgunned, Drake and his companions must fight to survive as they begin to unravel the terrible secrets hidden on the Island…
Uncharted 2: Among Thieves:
Uncharted 2 Among Thieves is the story of Nathan Drake, a fortune-hunter with a shady reputation and an even shadier past who is lured back into the treacherous world of thieves and mercenary treasure-seekers. The tenth game by premier PlayStation 3 developer Naughty Dog, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves allows players to take control of Drake and embark on a journey that will push him to his physical, emotional and intellectual limits to discover the real truth behind the lost fleet of Marco Polo and the legendary Himalayan valley of Shambhala.

More Games Like Tomb Raider and Uncharted
1936: Nazi henchmen are traveling the world over, searching for occult weapons to help with plans for further conquests – and for a key artifact to unlock the mythical Shambala. When Fenton Paddock, a former British soldier and hapless smuggler, is asked to find a lost expedition in Tibet, he has no idea that his search is going to lead him through three continents, and eventually to a secret that could turn the whole world upside down… This game is like Tomb Raider and Uncharted but slower.
Adam’s Venture: The Search for the Lost Garden:
Summary: In an old Templar church in Luz, France, young explorer Adam Venture studies relics that were brought back from the Holy Land during the Crusades. He comes across the memoirs of Charles L’Heureux, a knight who joined the Third Crusade with Richard the Lionheart. The knight writes that during his travels in the year 1191, he, Charles L’Heureux, was given an old scroll. Once he understood its meaning, he asked permission to split off from his regiment that was headed for Jerusalem, and instead traveled East by himself. The memoirs then point Adam to the hidden scroll, buried in a tomb underneath the church. The scroll is filled with ancient symbols. They mention a mysterious labyrinth of caves and grotto’s, guarding the headwaters of four rivers: Pishon, Gihon, Tigris, Euphrates.… Good bad small game.
Adam’s Venture: Solomon’s Secret:
This is the best Adam’s Venture game, good puzzles. In the second installment of the episodic series, Adam Venture and his crew end up in 1920′s Jerusalem after having escaped alive from the Caverns of Eden. On their continuous search for the Lost Garden of Eden, they become entangled in a thickening plot featuring a ruthless dig for the ancient King Solomon’s treasure – but is that really all there is to it? Not all is as it seems
Adam’s Venture: Revelations:
I liked Solomon’s Secret more, as its has more action and more logical puzzles. Although its worth to play this game. Revelations is the final episode in the Adam’s Venture series. Alas, fans of this trilogy may be disappointed by how the series ends. The story picks up just after the events of Adam’s Venture Episode 2: Solomon’s Secret, with Adam lying near death in the tomb of Solomon. This revelation only lasts a moment, though, as the story is quickly turned into a flashback where the vast majority of the game is spent.
In the game, the player controls the actions of American lawyer Kate Walker, who is sent to a remote French village in order to finalize the take-over of a toy factory there. Once at the village, Kate learns that the woman who owned the factory has just died, and that she has a brother who must be contacted in order for the takeover to proceed.
