The official games can be purchased. Try Amazon or Steam Downloads. All of the official games after Tomb Raider Underworld require the use of STEAM to install and play. They are no longer PC stand-alone games since TR Underworld. The new ones require the use of the internet in North America and many players refuse to use STEAM.

TR Underworld was problematic because the PC requirements were too high for most players with XP machines, and the game does not run smoothly on Win7 or higher (it runs way too slow to play it properly).

If you wish, you might be better off with the Xbox versions starting with the TR Reboot since Crystal Dynamics designs the games for Microsoft Xbox first rather than Sony Playstation or PC computers---but you have to use a game controller.

i played underworld on a win7 machine and it played just fine
it's probably a matter of the graphic card
all the newer games can be played with the mouse and keyboard
1-to 5 and the addons i think you can purchase cheap on gog
