Note: This is a Walkthrough. This is not a simple 'FAQ'. I only create a FAQ
for a game that I truly love. So if you see a guide written by me on a specific
game, then you know that I have put my heart and soul into the guide because I
basically got hooked on the game and it has a special place next to my heart.
So every guide that I produce WILL get to v1.00 without fail, unless a car hits
me and I die of course...

OK well welcome to my third FAQ so far! Hope you enjoy the game as much as I
have. I started this just after someone requested a guide on
www.tombraiderchronicles.com. So here is my guide. Whether it is good or not is
not up to me to decide - but you. I make this with every effort that I have. If
I come up short then there is nothing I can do! Anyway, onward and upward!

Well the reason I am writing this (and yes I am still writing this even as you
read it - believe me I am a perfectionist) and any other FAQs that I have
created, is because I get a good old buzz when someone benefits from something
that I have written.

Mission statement: To make my FAQ/Guide/Walkthrough as good, as in-depth and as
thorough as the first FAQ that I ever read. The Unofficial C&C Strategy FAQ
written by the great Roger Wong.

                - Demo level is added.
                - Added some extra areas that have no real purpose (I imagine
		that these areas contain secrets in the full game)
                - Added Moves list. Almost complete.
0.11 100406     - Took ages to get it online. Blame www.gamefaqs.com for the

                - Many miscellaneous stuff.
0.15 110406     - Finished first level. Most of the other sections are now

		ISDN and satellite. This change will adversely affect download
		times for this guide.
		- Altered the section search codes and section numbers as some
		people were mixing the two and getting confused. The sides that
		these two reside on have been swapped. This now properly
		resembles the TOC.

0.35 030806	- Added correct terminology for Lara's moves all thanks to

I will not be adding things to this section that you need to play the game
anyway - jump run vault and climb etc. Note with combos: Most of the combos can
have different elements of the other combo moves intermixed near the end. In
fact you can do this simply to keep the combo going indefinitely. Although who
would be stupid enough to try that.

A big thanks goes out to "Lynne M" for providing me with correct terminology
for the moves that Lara performs. I will provide both my interpretations (for
those like me who have no idea about anything gymnastics and for those who are
smarter than I am :] )

The more difficult and less known ones I shall be providing a video link so
that players may see what the move actually looks like.

#JUMP-FLIP WITH LEGS TUCKED# - Front Tuck.


Double tap the jump key. Increases jump length slightly.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

COMBO +JUMP-FLIP WITH LEGS TUCKED-FLIP WITH NO ARMS+


Tap the jump key 4 times. Looks cool.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

COMBO +JUMP-FLIP WITH LEGS TUCKED-FLIP WITH NO ARMS X2+ - Front Tuck with Front
Layout.


Tap the jump key 6 times. Looks even cooler.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

COMBO +JUMP-FLIP WITH LEGS TUCKED-FLIP WITH NO ARMS X2-SPINNING SOMERSAULT+ -
Front Tuck - Front Layout - Front Twisting Layout.


Tap the jump key repeatedly. Looks wicked.

Video Link:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mz0uECneocI

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

#ROLL#


Hit the roll button whilst running forward. Useful for when you need to gain a
metre or two very quickly.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

COMBO +ROLL-HANDSPRING+


Tap roll button 3 times in quick succession whilst running forward. Useful for
gaining more than a metre or two fast.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

COMBO +ROLL-HANDSPRING-CARTWHEEL+


Lara wilL perform a roll, then a handspring and finally a cartwheel to be
facing the other direction. Whilst running, tap the roll key twice, then whilst
in the handspring press backwards and roll.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

COMBO +ROLL-HANDSPRING-CARTWHEEL-HANDSTAND SOMERSAULT X2-SPINNING SOMERSAULT+


Do the same as above but will perform 2 handstand somersaults and a spinning
somersault to finish facing the other direction.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

COMBO +ROLL-HANDSPRING-SLOW SPINNING somersault+


Tap roll whilst moving to start the roll, then roll again to do a handspring,
then in the middle of the handspring press backwards and jump. Lara will do a
roll, handspring then a spinning somersault similar to others but only spins
once around so that she ends up facing the other direction.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

COMBO +ROLL-HANDSPRING-SLOW SPINNING somersault-BACKWARDS somersault
X2-SPINNING somersault+


Same as above but keep pressing jump after the last one. Lara will do two
backwards somersaults then a full spinning somersault all backwards. NICE!!!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

COMBO +ROLL-HANDSPRING-HANDSTAND somersault+


Tap roll button 6 times in quick succession whilst running forward. Useful for
gaining a fair few metres fast.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

COMBO +ROLL-HANDSPRING-HANDSTAND somersault X3-SPINNING somersault+


Tap roll button 12 times in quick succession whilst running forward. No more
moves can be added to this. Also note that because no moves can be added to the
end of this, just tap the roll button quickly until she performs it. Useful for
moving a great distance fast.... and for entertaining the folks back home.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

#SWAN DIVE#


Tap the jump key then the roll button in quick succession whilst running. Do
this like a 1-2 punch in boxing. NOTE: Donít attempt this outside of these two
scenarios - diving into water or diving to a level the same height of TWO
levels below. Doing so will kill poor Lara. Do this before the previous one for
a wicked combo move!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

COMBO +SWAN DIVE-ROLL-HANDSPRING-HANDSTAND somersault X3-SPINNING somersault+


Tap the roll key repeatedly. This is the best combo in the game.

Video Link:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yKNM-fT3nsA

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

COMBO +SWAN DIVE-ROLL-HANDSPRING-CARTWHEEL+


Lara will perform a swan dive, then a roll, then a handspring, then finally
perform a cartwheel and be facing the other direction. Do this, while running
forward, press jump, then immediately roll, then whilst in the roll press roll
again. Whilst in the handspring press roll again at the same time as you press
backwards. Lara will be facing the other direction.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

#BACKFLIP#


Whilst guns are out, hold the backwards key and hit the jump key. NOTE: Lara
can only do this with guns out! Yes I know I hate that too.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

#SIDEFLIP# (Both directions)


Whilst guns are out, hold down either side key and hit the jump key. NOTE: Lara
can only do this with guns out!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

#FORWARD FLIP#


Whilst guns are out, hold down the forward key and hit the jump key. NOTE: Lara
can only do this with guns out!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

#FAST HAND OVER HAND SHIMMY#


Whilst hanging from her fingertips and your looking at her back, hold down one
of the side keys and press the interact or E key in time with Laraís movements.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

#BACKWARDS VAULT-HANDSPRING#


Whilst guns are out, hit the back key and tap the roll button. NOTE: This can
only be performed when guns are out.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

#SIDEWAYS VAULT-ROLL#


Whilst guns are out, hold one of the side keys, then tap the roll button. NOTE:
This can only be performed when guns are out.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

#SLOW MOTION POUNCE AND GUN#


This one is hard to use but comes in handy. If you cant get it first go, give
up! You expend too much health otherwise from weapon hits. When Lara is within
jumping range of an enemy that is right in front of Lara, jump and as Lara is
about to land on them, jump again and Lara will enter slow motion, tomb raider
style. You will have locked Laraís guns on them so just fire Laraís guns to
waste em. Lara will perform a roll when Lara hit the ground. Its pretty cool
and very useful at times when you need to take them down fast. I do believe you
are able to kill them faster and with less rounds than normal because of where
Laraís hitting them.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

#SLOW MOTION DIVING POUNCE AND GUN#


Just as above but instead of pressing jump, you press the crouch or roll key
and Lara will dive through the air and give Lara a shot at their back.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

#SLOW MOTION GROUND SLIDING TRIP AND GUN#


This one is a little more useful. Whilst guns are out, run at Laraís opponent
and as you get within jumping range, press roll and Lara will slide underneath
and trip the enemy soldier. Pretty impressive.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

#SLOW MOTION ENEMY VAULT AND GUN#


This move need to be performed right next to an enemy for it to work. First be
right next to an enemy and face them. Have Laraís guns out and then press jump
key. Then whilst Lara is in the air, fire Laraís weapon for an easy slow motion
kill.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

#TURN AROUND ON BAR#


Whilst at the top of the swing on a bar, press and hold the other direction.
Simple.

Video Link:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=82OW-QmXOCk

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

#TKATCHEV MOVE# - The Tkatchev move is named after Alexander Vasilyevich
Tkachev as he created the move and used it during the Olympic Games and
thereafter has been used heavily ever since.


When at the top of the swing on a bar, hold down the E key and press the
opposite direction. This will cause Lara to turn mid flight, then do some weird
looking maneuver where she disconnects, splits her legs then connects again,
whilst swinging the other direction. Very weird. I guess the idea behind this
is a speedy turn around maybe?

Video Link:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wPUNQrfwXKE

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

#FREESTYLE#


While at the surface of water, hold down forward and hit the interact or E key
repeatedly. Cool! She can even swim real fast.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

#UNDERWATER BREASTSTROKE#


While underwater, hold down forward and press the interact or E key repeatedly.
This makes swimming much faster.

This section will contain a detailed run down of all the weapons featured in
Tomb Raider Legend.
TBC

NOTE: These are only my interpretations of the various weapons. I have no real
idea what the weapons are. Maybe someone in the know can point out to me what
the weapons are exactly. I would be very greatful for any input towards this
endeavour. The following four weapons descriptions have been submitted from
"Sam Vere", obviously a well learned person when it comes to guns.


#Pistols#
Heckler & Koch USP Match (compare in-game name - RGB Mach 5) - the
large counterweights/compensators are distinctive. Normally available in 9mm
(15 round magazine) or .45 (12 round magazine). Since they are listed as having
'extended' mags that could mean they are .45s - unless they are referring to
after the upgrade...


#SMG#
One of the H&K MP5/MP10/MP40 family (9mm, 10mm & .40 S&W respectively)
(there are so many varients it isn't funny - laregly because it is a modular
design)


#Rifle#
M16/M4 carbine. Probably the latter simply because that seems to be the
most popular in games nowadays.)


#Shotgun#
Anyone's guess. Definitely not a SPAS-12 (Very distinctive) or SPAS-15
(Magazine-fed semi-auto shotgun that looks worryingly like an oversized M16/M4)


#Fixed Machine Gun Emplacement#


#RPG# - Removed from game.


#Grenade Launcher#


#Grenades#


#Excalibur#


#Soul Reaver# (This is from Crystal Dynamics' other game series - Legacy of
Kain - Soul Reaver)

BRONZE 0 %
TIME TRIAL 00:00

NOTE: This level will contain the rewards but the rewards are not available in
the demo. One other thing, there is two leopards that are not in the demo but
is in the full. You will be noted about them.

                                [INTRODUCTION]

We start off on the side of a mountain, climbing the way up to the ruins. After
a short passage where she climbs, talks, climbs some more and finally jumps
onto a ledge. We are standing in front of the ruins of some place.

                                [LEVEL BEGINS]

OK First up, go up the ramp right in front of Lara and jump to the other side.

/%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%\
Just before you cross the broken bridge, go left of the pillar in front of
Lara, and you will find the first bronze reward. NICE!
\%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%/
-{Bronze 1/10}-

/%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%\
Look to Laraís right and you will notice in the cave there, is the second
bronze reward. Grab it.
\%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%/
-{Bronze 2/10}-

Turn left and notice a pool with a waterfall. Do a perfect swan dive into the
pool (well you donít have to if you donít want to!) and turn to Laraís left.
There should be a ledge, climb up onto it. "Ahh that was lovely!" she will say.
A short cinematic where Lara looks at her PDA.

                                [FIRST BOULDER]

Immediately in front of Lara is another ledge. Climb it too. Notice that there
is a big ass boulder in Laraís way? Grab it and move it forward. Now back up
and jump onto the outcropping. Turn right and you will see two vines, one right
in front of Lara. Climb that one and get to the correct height and jump across
to the other vine and finally onto the next outcropping. Now in front of Lara
is a rope dangling from a tree. Perform a running jump and Lara will grab onto
it.

/#############################################################################\
When Lara are on the rope, turn to Laraís left and notice another cave. Swing
into it and continue down the cave which turns to Laraís right. Soon enough,
you will see the first silver reward, sitting just before a drop, which will
place Lara on the path described below.
\#############################################################################/

-{Silver 1/5}-

Swing from the rope a few times and jump through the waterfall.

                            [BEHIND THE WATERFALL]

Turn Laraís light on so you can see and start walking into the cave. Go around
the U bend and come to a small jump. Take a running jump and arrive at the
ledge. Lara will now look at the small ledge that stretches out across the side
of the mountain. Jump onto this and move along it until you get to a small gap
where an outcropping awaits. Jump onto it and remember this spot.

                                   [STREAM]

Now start up the stream and once you get close to the boulder in front of Lara,
it will start to roll back with an intention of crushing Lara. Go back to the
place you remembered and watch as the boulder flies off the ledge and into the
pool below. Run up this stream again and you will notice a branch across the
path. Just before the branch is a small ramp on the right. Go up the ramp and
jump onto the branch. Swing and jump onto the next branch then onto the ledge,
then move right and jump to the next ledge.

                               [FIRST MERCENARY]

A short cinematic will show where Lara is shocked to find someone is after her
but cannot find her. He will wander off up the stream and Lara can then get up
from the ledge. Get out Laraís trusty guns and go waste some fool. Continue up
the way and you will come to a fallen tree. Go back a bit and see a bright
white ledge that you can grab onto. It is on two sides of a cliff. Jump on this
and move around the side and then vault up onto the outcropping. Ahh another
boulder to push you say! Yup! Push the boulder onto the fallen tree below and
watch as a branch is brought into the air, perfect height for swinging! Jump
down from the ledge.

/%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%\
Just to Laraís left is the third bronze reward.
\%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%/
-{Bronze 3/10}-

Jump onto that branch you just propped up. Swing a bit and launch onto the
rocks on top of the waterfall.

                              [SECOND WATERFALL]

You will see a shiny metal circular door. Grapple it and give it a yank. It
will come down and shatter. Walk into the door and a cinematic will play
showing two guys musing over a cigarette smoking monkey. Lara will sneak into
the area and get prepared for an attack. Whip out Laraís guns and blast em. If
you donít want to be hurt unnecessarily, jump and dodge and move about. Once
they are sucking in water, heal Lara and grab the medic kits.

                               [THIRD WATERFALL]

OK now jump onto the rock just in front of the next waterfall, and grab the
ledge there. Either race to the left of the ledge or simple let it crumble and
cause Lara to fall, then get back on it. It donít matter. Jump to the left hand
side of the ledge and then backwards jump onto the horizontal pole. Swing and
then launch onto the ledge. Climb around the side and then jump onto the next
ledge and vault Lara up onto the platform. Turn left and go round the bend and
notice the handy dandy rope ready for you to swing from. Use it to swing to the
slight right of the waterfall and onto the ledge behind it.

/%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%\
Just to the left, behind the waterfall, and slightly to the left is a small
cave, with the fourth bronze reward in it. Nab it and then drop back down a
level and move across and back to the right of the waterfall as you are looking
at it.
\%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%/
-{Bronze 4/10}-

Turn around and see two horizontal poles sticking out from the wall.

                             [HORIZONTAL POLES X2]

Jump and swing onto those and onto the far ledge. Get Laraís guns out and waste
the guy around the corner. Now notice the silver shiny disc above the stream?
To grapple that jump twice whilst moving toward it. Swing a bit and then jump
onto the far ledge (well if you were moving fast enough then you donít have to
swing at all). Continue down the corridor and around the bend to the right,
then left and find an open area.

/%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%\
Just as you loose Lara from the grapple swing, you will turn right down the
corridor. Just on the bend, if you look up you will see the fifth bronze
reward, but no way to get it! Ahh thatís what the mighty grapple is for! Move
back a little from it and chuck Laraís grapple at it. Give it a yank and hey
presto!
\%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%/
-{Bronze 5/10}-

Once you enter the vale, a cinematic will play with Lara being coy about the
ruins. Then the "bloody tourists" arrive and spoil it. Ok time for some
payback.

                               [BLOODY TOURISTS]

See the rocks immediately in front of Lara? Hit the E or interact key to bring
out Laraís guns and shoot at the rocks aka environmental hazards to cause them
to roll down the hill and crush the two guys walking down below. Time it well
and the rocks will kill both, time it poorly and you will have to waste the
second or both of them with Laraís guns when you get down there. Now, once
they are taken care of, slide down the hill and grab the medic kits from the
dead guys if you need em. You only need to walk over the top of them to pick
them up. You wont pick up more than you can carry so if you walk over them and
they still sit there, then you have the maximum.

/%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%\
Just as you get down from the slide, if you look to Laraís forward right, you
will see a small alcove in the rock. Go in there and just behind a rock is the
sixth bronze reward. Saweet!
\%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%/
-{Bronze 6/10}-

Ok now you have two choices - Go around to the right of the pillar on the left,
waste a guy and jump up to the ledge on Laraís left or you could go up the ramp
to the left of the pillar and waste the guy standing there and then the guy
down below. I find going up the ramp much easier and faster. You can pick up
the submachine gun if you want - its not bad but horribly inaccurate.

/%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%\
Just before you jump onto the rope, jump down and go to Laraís right. You will
see a small corridor with a bridge above. Continue down this little corridor
and what do ya know? The seventh bronze reward!! OMFG! What a find! Once you
are done, go back up to the ledge you were on.
\%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%/
-{Bronze 7/10}-

Now looking over the edge of the ledge you see the obvious rope that will lead
you to the obvious ledge you need to swing to. Do this now but climb up a bit
to ensure you are high enough to land on the opposing ledge. Once onto the next
platform you will confronted with another slide down to the lower level. Be
ready to whip out Laraís guns and dispose of a fair few baddies, so get out
Laraís newly acquired submachine gun.

                            [THIRD MERCENARY GROUP]

As soon as you are down, turn right and start wasting guys left and right with
Laraís submachine gun. A cool trick is the pillar on Laraís right, as you are
crossing the small bridge. Hit that with the E or interact key and bingo! A ton
of rock lands on the mercenaries heads, killing one or two instantly. Whilst
doing this, keep trying to make Lara as hard to hit as possible by doing jumps
and such whilst shooting. When you run out of ammo, you will auto switch to
Laraís hand guns. Keep it up past the car until all are disposed of. Grab
either the submachine gun ammo from the dropped guns or pick up the assault
rifle. I like the power of the assault rifle.

                              [STAIRS BESIDE CAR]

Option 1: Go up the stairs and a short cinematic will play with two guys firing
a round at you, barely missing you, Lara pulls her guns out to fire back but
the two "amateurs" run off into the tunnel only to be sliced and diced "that
sounded permanent". Ok, now note that slicing sound whilst you watch the
cinematic. This gives a hint as to what lays ahead.
Option 2: Instead of the stairs, look to the right for a small platform leading
to a series of platforms that you can jump onto. Jump all the way up and then
go into the corridor. This only bypasses the cinematic but hey it donít matter
in the end.

/#############################################################################\
As you are looking at the stairs, take a look on the left side and you will
just see a couple levels of big steps. Just up two steps and have a look at the
brick wall to Laraís left. Look beyond it and you will see a little speck of
silver. Could it be? Yes it is! The second silver reward!!
\#############################################################################/
-{Silver 2/5}-

                           [SPINNING SPIKES PUZZLE]

As you walk up the stairs and into the corridor, the floor will slide off the
sides and the spinning spikes will reveal a gruesome death to all who would
like to try them out. Now remember the double jump grapple that you performed
earlier? Do this on the very edge and before you start swinging, hold down the
E or interact key to gain some height if necessary. Make sure you give Lara the
best possible swing before launching off and attempting to land onto the solid
floor in the distance. I missed once and I donít like hearing the horrible
slicing when your character is the one being diced. Once you have made it past
the death pit, continue onwards down the corridor and turn right.

/%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%\
Just at the end of the corridor past the gruesome death pit, if you look to
Laraís left, you will notice a small hole in the wall. Go through this and
yeehaw! The eighth bronze reward!
\%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%/
-{Bronze 8/10}-

                                   [CHAINS]

Anyway once you have entered into the room with the unusual things on chains
you will get in information cinematic showing you where you need to go. Either
walk to jump onto the bare chain and start climbing quickly. Look around whilst
climbing for the closest available bare chain, and look at it. Then hit the
jump key to jump to it and then continue climbing. Jump back to the original
chain once it is free again, then onto the ledge that is now at the right
height. Go down the small area and find a lower room with a single chain. To
save health, jump onto it and simply slide all the way down.

                              [SINGLE CHAIN ROOM]

Turn right around and notice the opening in the side of the wall behind you. Go
through this and turn right to find a nice little pool of water to do another
perfect swan dive! Once in the water turn right and swim through to the opening
in the surface and go up to catch a breath.

/%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%\
Get out of the water, and behind a small little wall will be the ninth bronze
reward. Cool, brilliant, wonderful...
\%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%/
-{Bronze 9/10}-

Turn around in the water and notice the bright sand on the bottom right - we
want to go that way. Duck under and swim down that underwater passage and turn
right. Come up and out of the water onto the stone floor. Go down this passage,
turn right. Stop before you get to the left turn. Whip out Laraís guns and get
ready to waste a leopard. NOTE: This animal is not in the demo. Once the animal
is removed from the level, proceed left and slow down to see the two side walls
coming together to smash against each other.

                             [FIRST CLOSING WALLS]

When they are together race up to them and when you come to a stop, stop! As
soon as they open again race forward and roll when you are near the end so that
you get out in time. Aha! You say! I see a cage! Haha! That is the key to the
puzzle to Laraís left! Grab it and move it to the crashing walls and when they
open, push it into the gap and continue moving it into the gap until you get to
the second set of crashing walls.

                            [SECOND CLOSING WALLS]

Now a trick - when the second one opens, only push the cage just far enough to
stop both walls from crashing together. Once the first wall retracts, push the
cage further into the second set of walls and continue on. When you get to the
end of it, do the same with the second as you did the first. Wait till it
closes and smashes onto the cage then push forward and out. Dump the cage and
race up the stairs to the right (well you donít have to race if you donít want
to...) and into the brand new room. Ahh the master puzzle of the demo level!

                                [MASTER PUZZLE]

/%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%\
Just to Laraís right and onto the level just to the right of the chain that you
face, is the tenth and final bronze reward! WICKED!
\%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%/
-{Bronze 10/10}-

Oh dam the door just closed behind Lara and she is now locked in the tomb. A
cinematic will play showing the door closing and Lara looking up at the
contents of the new room. "patience and persistence" is required for this
puzzle. Turn right and find the cage on the current deck level. Now grab out
Laraís handy dandy new binocs, turn on RAD, and have a look at the three square
pads on the floor, the bright white door at the far end of the room and the
three cages - one to Laraís immediate right, one underneath what looks like a
seesaw to Laraís forward left and another to Laraís far forward right. First
off, grab the cage on Laraís right, and move it onto any one of the three pads.
If you step on a pad Lara will look at what happens to learn what each pad
does. Once the first cage is on a pad, walk to the middle where the middle pad
is and right on the end, on the lower level is a leopard! Waste it from where
you are so that it cant harm you. Now jump down to the lower level and grab the
cage from underneath the seesaw and then place it on top of it on the same end
as it was. Jump up to the upper decking and then run to the ledge to the right
of the seesaw. Now turn left and jump onto the end of the seesaw to launch the
cage up and onto the decking. If you just ran onto the end of the seesaw the
cage will simply roll off it. You need to jump onto it. Repeat the process with
the other cage, until all three are on the top deck. Move each cage to an empty
pad and watch as the door opens. Hoorah! Now you can do two of one solution,
which really, is a simple mirror of the other. Either left side or right side.
It donít matter. Jump up onto the ledge on the wall next to the door you used
to enter the room and next to the chain with the thingy on it. From there, jump
onto the chain above the thingy and then onto the thin ledge and start moving
hand over hand around the bend. Jump up a level and up onto the deck there.
Above Laraís head is a chain that you can use to climb across the small chasm.
Once on the other side of the chain, you will see a horizontal pole sticking
out from the wall. Funny how these things are obviously put so that you can
get from point A to point B! Jump onto it and swing and launch Lara onto the
platform where the door opened.

/#############################################################################\
Well this isnít hard but its time consuming. Once you are at the top, right in
front of the door, look to the other side of the room if you took the left path
 on the left side of the room. From where you are at the door, jump onto the
 ledge and around the bend. Continue along and then vault up to the next ledge
 up, and then vault onto the ledge where the chain is. Cross the chain to the
 other side of it and let go. Whoopee! The third silver reward!!
\#############################################################################/
-{Silver 3/5}-

/$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$\
OK now this can be a bit tricky to accomplish. Once you have all three cages on
the pads, go to the middle one and grab it. Push the cage towards the white
door so as to get a good view of it. The door should shut. OK, now pull it back
onto the pad. Now race back to the cage on Laraís left and pull or push it off.
If you timed it right, the door should be stuck half way. If it isnít right,
then you wont be able to grab the chain to get up. To fix this, step on the
left pad for a second and watch the locking mechanism unlock, then the cog will
turn. Once it is just enough for the cog to turn, jump off. To add that little
bit of leeway, move the cage from the middle pad to stop the doors movement and
bring the chain to the right position. Brilliant! Now make Laraís way up to the
door. Climb up the wall beside the door and then do a sideways jump ONTO the
door itself. Vault up and onto the door to find the gold reward! Well done!!!
\$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$/

                             [DEMO LEVEL COMPLETE]

Donít go through the door unless you want to end the demo level if that is what
you are playing. Cos this is it, this is as far as you can go sonny!

                          [DEMO LEVEL COMPLETE NOTES]

Congratulations on completing the demo level. I hope you loved the short part
of the level as much as I did and you intend to purchase the full game when it
comes out! I know I am! I hope you got something out of this guide as it means
a lot to me to have someone get something out of something I have created. Send
me an email saying so and I will be glad to receive it!

For those who have the game, please refer down a bit to the rest of the first
level. Onward and upward!

                                [INTRODUCTION]

Since this is continued from the demo level, there is no introduction needed.

                                [SLICY BLADES]

OK, the first 'interactive movie' sequence. Its really easy once you know how
these things work. First off, when you enter a interactive movie sequence, you
partially control Lara. You will see Lara moving but only you control small
portions of what she does. When you need to do something, the game will display
a direction arrow. Make sure you press the direction arrow when it displays and
make sure its the right one or else watch Lara die. It stays on screen for
about a second. Up arrow is forward when looking Laraís direction when you
normally control Lara. And the other directions are the same. Just donít press
the buttons corresponding to Laraís current direction. OK the keys, are back or
down, then up or forward. NOTE: When she flips during the second button press
moment, you will see the silver reward below you. You cannot access this yet so
 donít worry. Turn immediately right, down a but then slow down and turn left.
 Be wary of the edge just in front of you. Walk right up to the edge and whip
 out Laraís guns. As you look into the big room, you will see things that look
 like the old 'hills hoist' washing lines or coat hangers. They are really
 torture devices. Look to Laraís right and you will see a leopard. Waste it
 before you continue.

                               [TORTURE DEVICES]

OK put Laraís guns away and drop down to Laraís fingertips on the edge. Move as
far as you can to the right, then drop down two levels then let go. You will be
pretty much on the lower level. Find the platform to Laraís right looking back
up at the way you came. Move over to this platform and jump up to it.

/#############################################################################\
When you are on the lower level, look just left of the entrance that you just
dropped down from. You will notice a section of wall that is a slightly
different, lighter, colour than the rest of the wall. Move over this section,
grab it and push it into the wall. Keep moving it until you cant push it any
further. Let go and turn right. Go down the passageway and turn left. You will
enter into a room that is below the slicy blades above you. Ahh you finally got
that elusive one that you couldnít get before! the fourth silver reward!
\#############################################################################/
-{Silver 4/5}-

Now look at the closest 'coat hangar'. Jump to the left side of it so that you
swing on it and cause it to move around. Whilst still swinging forward, jump to
the next one in line and cause that one to swing around. Jump onto the last one
and as it turns around, jump onto the ledge on the wall. Move right by quickly
shimmying until you get to the exit. You cant get out just yet. Jump across the
bottom of the exit to the other ledge on the other side of the doorway.

/#############################################################################\
Once you are on the other side of the doorway, look behind you, and you will
notice a 'coat hangar' directly behind you. Jump backwards onto the left side
of it and wait till it turns around. Now jump straight onto the ledge right in
front of you. Vault up and collect the fifth and last silver reward of the
level. Congrats! Once you have collected the loot, jump back to the same side
of the 'coat hangar' and await it to turn back again. Then jump back to the
wall, where you came from.
\#############################################################################/
-{Silver 5/5}-

Now move to the right as far as you can go, and vault upwards to catch the wall
ledge. Move right again, and then vault up to the small wall ledge there. Now
move left and jump the gap to the wall ledge that will lead you to the exit.
Turn the corner and let go. Bingo! We are past the 'coat hangars of death!'.

                                [APACHE ATTACK]

Jump up a level and immediately turn right. Proceed down this corridor and
perform every running maneuver in the book until you feel happy enough to fight
an AH-64 APACHE! Turn the corner to the left and you will be faced with a
cinematic which shows Laraís past in a flashback. Once the flashback is
finished, you will be on a bridge with an apache about to rain fire down upon
Laraís humble bridge. Donít shoot, just run and jump the gaps it creates and
finally jump onto the edge of the rock platform. Vault up and start to waste
all the mercenaries you see. Piece of p---.

                            [LEVEL COMPLETE NOTES]

Lara inspects the stone dais and talks to zip and co about the fact that the
shows not over. The next scene takes place in the manor, back in London. The
crew examine the stone dais and Lara barks out her new orders. Its off to Peru
and to paraiso in an attempt to chase down Rutland.

TIME TRIAL 21:30

                                [INTRODUCTION]

We start in a alley way with a dummy opposing us in a showdown. Everyone
scampers off screen and we are left to our own devices shortly after.

                                [LEVEL BEGINS]

Proceed forward and up to the dummy in front of you and turn left.

/%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%\
As soon as you get to the dummy, turn right and go around to the back of the
building on the right. Jump onto the smaller roof and onto the bigger roof.
Proceed to the other side of the roof and jump and grapple the power pole on
the other side of the street. Swing to the roof directly opposite. Jump down to
the other side and notice the first bronze reward. Now move the box that is
nearby to the fence and use it to jump over it.
\%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%/
-{Bronze 1/8}-

You will see Lara's friend sitting by a parked jeep. Go through the gateway and
a cut scene will ensue. After a bit of chatting, a truck crashes through a side
gate and just about rams the jeep. Whilst whats her name jumps into the jeep
and heads off, Lara is left to waste the guys who arrived in the truck. Waste
2-3 guys on the right, then another 3 guys on the right side.

/%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%\
Once you have disposed of the bad guys, jump onto the little stall to the side
of the stairs. Now jump onto the closest roof. You will notice two poles
sticking out from the wall in front of you. Jump on each of these and onto the
roof beyond. Once you have arrived there, grab the second bronze reward and
grab onto the zip line and slide all the way down.
\%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%/
-{Bronze 2/8}-

/%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%\
Before you jump onto the flag pole, go down the alleyway nearby and round the
corner to Laraís left will be a bronze reward. This is the third of the level.
\%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%/
-{Bronze 3/8}-

Soon after you waste all 6 or so of the enemy guys, a shot gun toting merc will
bash through un upstairs door and try and find you. Either waste him from the
ground, or immediately jump onto the flag pole and scale it. Once at the right
height, jump onto the platform and turn right.

/#############################################################################\
Just as you get off the flag pole, there is a door just ahead and to Laraís
left. Go through it and on the right hand side of the room is a silver reward.
This is the first silver reward. Nab it and back through the door
\#############################################################################/
-{Silver 1/2}-

You will need to jump grapple to get across the gap here. On the other side, go
through the nearest door and find another shotgun wielding dude. Paste him and
grab the stuff on the table if you need it. Immediately to Laraís left is a
door that leads to a horde of bad guys. Be prepared to go out running and
gunning. Open the door and start pummeling the mercs a new one.

                                    [MERCS]

The following area contains a lot of mercs. Here is a list:
-Right in front of you is a building with a terrace. A single merc is up there.
-On Laraís right as you exit the building, is a guy on the ground. Above him is
a grapple-able light post. You can use this to swing across to the other
buildings.
-In the building tower diagonally to Laraís right is 2 mercs inside and one on
the roof of the building behind it.
-Another merc is just around the corner on the ground below this tower like
building.
-Around the corner a bit more is 2 more mercs on the ground.
-As you come around the corner a jeep will rush in from the right with a guy on
the back wielding a heavy machine cannon. To easily past this guy, hit the
interact key on the electricity pole above his head. This will knock it off its
support and electrocute him.
-Around the corner and a bit further on is 3 more guys intent on throwing
grenades at you. Rush in past the grenades and pummel them.
-Finally a guy should appear back behind the jeep and a little back down the
way you came.

/%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%\
Before going near the bike, return back to the small little stall just around
the corner from the buke and up from the truck. When you reach the stall turn
right and go down the small passage way.  At the end, turn right and you will
see the fourth bronze reward. Grab it and return to the bike.
\%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%/
-{Bronze 4/8)-

Once all mercs are accounted for, proceed to the bike at the end of the path.
When Lara is close enough a cinematic will play with Lara being told mercs are
after Anaya.

                                    [BIKE]

This sequence is rather simple. To survive, you need to fire Laraís weapons at
the mercs that come in range of Laraís pistol, all the while avoiding their
fire. You will see many health packs on the road. Try to run over them to pick
them up. If you have 95% health and you see a health pack ahead, use a health
pack if you have maximum already as you cannot go back for it. Remember - you
want to have the most health packs and at the same time, be the most health as
possible. Only use health packs to either pick up more health packs or if you
dip below half health. Donít be afraid to use them if you get below half. You
want to survive - not be silly.
There isnít anything special that happens on this section. Just drive and gun.
Try not to hit the sides or the objects in the road, including dead guys bikes.
Soon after you start, you will face a few jumps and a wall with a propane tank
in front of it, hit the interact key to shoot it and waste the wall. Note this
idea for later. When the bad guys are near a propane tank, shoot the tank to
take em out with one shot. Keep this up for a while until the road thins and
you see fire in the distance. This is a bridge that is on fire. Direct her bike
to the non fire parts of the bridge and you will notice a jump. Its a jump over
a wide chasm! On the other side of the bridge, a few trucks will come into view
in the distance. Move to the left of the road as the right hand truck will
loose it tailgate and start hurling boxes at you. Drive up the left side of the
first truck and in between the 2 right side trucks. The left front truck will
drop its tailgate too and loose some boxes. Then 2 mercs will get ready to
start pummeling Lara. Donít let em. Move left and waste em with Lara's trusty
pistol. Once they are down, the tailgate will lower completely, allowing Lara
to ride onto the back of the truck. Drive up the ramp and a cinematic will
play. Lara jumps onto the cabin roof and do a cool matrix revolutions askew
move where she shoots her pistols into the driver of the truck whilst doing a
somersault into Anaya's jeep. Morpheus: "NICE!" Love those slow motion moves!

                                [DIG SITE-PAST]

NOTE: For this level only, you donít have Laraís Personal Light Source, instead
you have Laraís trusty old flares from previous games. To use them, use the K
key on your keyboard. And donít worry, they are infinite. Although you can only
have two out at a time but. Also, you donít have any weapons or grenades. Donít
worry you donít have to shoot anything.

OK, Laraís in the past, reliving the experience you had a few years back. First
off proceed down the ramp and roll under low ceiling tunnel and down the slope.
Go around the corner to the left and when you get to what seems like a
bottomless pit, run up to it and jump. You will grab hold of a pole above
Laraís head and be ready to climb across the gap on it.
"Your lagging behind!" "Your such a tourist!" Once on the other side of the gap
go around the corner in the tunnel and face a T intersection of sorts. To the
left is a lighter tunnel and to the right is a darker tunnel. Go left first as
you cant go right for very far. Amanda will scream and run from left to right
and huge rocks will fall from the roof of the tunnel caving it in partially.
This will block Laraís access and give you but one option. The darker tunnel.
Turn back and go through the darker tunnel until you get to the portcullis.
Roll under it and see Sarah laying there unconscious it seems.

                                    [SARAH]

To her left is a square block just dying to be moved. Grab it and look to
Laraís right. There is a pad in between what looks like spikes. Move the block
to the right side of the small pit with spikes on either side so that the block
is beneath the unbroken and unbent one. Jump up onto the block and jump again
onto the straight spear and swing up onto the ledge in front of Lara.

/%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%\
As soon as Lara gets onto the ledge, look to the right and at Lara's feet to
see a nice easy bronze reward. Nice and easy eh?
\%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%/
-{Bronze 5/8}-

Now to the left is some kind of artwork on the wall with a small ledge that
Lara can grip onto. Jump onto that and then onto the ledge on the other side of
the room. Proceed down here and you will come to a large put with a rope
dangling from the roof. Take note of this rope. Jump down and "My god!" there
is a dead body on the ground! And a character named Kent is calling to Lara
from the right, behind bars. Go to him and have a nice old chat. Now for a bit
of fun! Grab the big huge ball behind you, next to the spears and push it and
off the pad where the spikes are. This will release the trap and the spikes
will retract. Be careful not to step on the spikes or else Lara will be
skewered. Jump up onto the ledge behind the crane with the rope and align her
with the edge closest to the crane. Now face the rope and jump onto it. Turn
around to face Kent and start swinging. You will note a ledge higher than Kent
- jump onto this and through the open door. Drop down and a cinematic will
ensue with Kent hearing Amanda scream and chase after her. Only thing is, the
beast that appears will be chasing him and have him for lunch.

                                  [THE BEAST]

Now a frightened Lara will back away from it and run off down the tunnel. Now
this is the next Interactive Movie event. This time a little different. You are
looking through the eyes of the beast but you control Lara. Nice eh? Believe me
I died many times because I didnít realise I was in control of Lara. Guide here
through the tunnel and over the obstacles until you get to a pit and a rope.
Jump into the pit and the Interactive Movie will end with the beast going over
the top and missing you.

                                 [SECOND BALL]

OK, fun over, look to the left and see a high ledge with a smaller, knee high
ledge below it. Jump onto the and see a big huge ball again. Grab the ball and
push it off the ledge and onto the floor. Drop down and push it further onto
the trap pad, activating it. But this one isnít dangerous as it only has 2.5
spikes left. When you activate the trap the cameral will reveal that one spike
is straight and unbroken. Get back onto the ledge and onto the next higher
ledge in the middle of the room. If you got the ball in the right position,
Amanda should appear to the left behind the bars. She will sob about everyone
being dead. Soon after another guy races up to Amanda scream and she follows
suit. The beast follows them. Enough chatter! Turn right and notice the spear
the camera showed us. Jump onto it and vault onto the rope beyond it. Then
vault onto the ledge at the far end of the room.

/%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%\
When Lara is on the ledge, turn right and go around the bend. Right at Lara's
feet is the sixth bronze reward.
\%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%/
-{Bronze 6/8}-

Proceed down the tunnel, over the obstacle and enter the next room. Amanda is
there and she has found a door. Or a key to opening it.

                                [FLOODING ROOM]

What follows is another cinematic where Lara argues with Amanda and Amanda
attempting to pull the purple stone from the wall/door. The beast arrives and
is about to consume Lara when Amanda pulls to stone free. The beast dissipates
and vanishes. But all is not over. The room starts to cave in and water gushes
in. Lara escapes but a portcullis closes behind her. Amanda is trapped behind
the door and with her foot stuck beneath a rock. Lara attempts to hold the
portcullis up but the rising water causes her to need air and she escapes.
Amanda is last seen at the point where boulders fall on top of her.

                            [PRESENT DAY DIG SITE]

Lara is at the surface of the dig site remembering what happened oh so long
ago.

/%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%\
Before you go too far, have a look behind the three boxes to Lara's right.
There is the seventh bronze reward sitting on the ground there behind them.
Grab it.
\%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%/
-{Bronze 7/8}-

OK, time to finish day dreaming! Head past the old dig site and onto the
landing by the old junk. Keep going until you find water.

/%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%\
Just before you get to the pool, inside a big broken box should be the last
bronze reward of the level. Nab it.
\%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%/
-{Bronze 8/8}-

Jump in and go straight down. You will find a passage under the water which you
can go through. As you are swimming, you will see in front of Lara, some light
coming from the ceiling - that is air. Go up where the light is and grab some
air. Go back down once you are full again and proceed even further down the
tunnel.
Finally you will come to a massive room half filled with water. Below the
surface are blue light sources. These are buttons that must be pressed one
straight after another to complete the chain reaction. Duck down and press each
one all in one breath. Make sure you start this from right above the first one
to get the best possible chance of doing it in one shot. To get a little bit of
speed underwater, hold down or continuously tap the E key.

                               [SLOPING TUNNEL]

/#############################################################################\
In one of the dead end tunnels of the massive room, is a nice silver reward,
nab it to finish off the silver rewards for this level.
\#############################################################################/
-{Silver 2/2}-

Have a look at the door where Amanda pulled off her little purple thingy and
you will notice there is a gaping hole in it. Go through it and Lara and crew
will spin off some tale about Tiwanaku and the legend of King Arthur. Go around
this big block in front of Lara and go through the door. Ahead of Lara is a big
ass slope. Donít bother, you cant climb up the slope. Instead look to the left
wall and see the two small white ledges that Lara can grip onto. Jump onto the
bottom one, vault onto the next one up and jump backwards onto the platform
behind Lara.
Now Turn towards the slope and Laraís grapple indicator will light up telling
you that there is something to grapple onto. Jump and grapple so that you swing
up the slope and leap onto the landing above the slope. Notice the small
waterfall on Lara's right side. This has two small ledges rather like the two
ledges Lara just passed. Jump up and onto the ledge. Find the next grapple
point and jump, grapple and swing up onto the next landing. Go through a small
corridor and enter a massive room.

                                [MASSIVE ROOM]

Walk up to the pit in front of Lara and await the Interactive Movie sequence.
Lara will start walking onto the square blocks but the blocks buckle and brake
off. Lara needs to get off the squares quickly. Wait for the arrows and hit the
corresponding keys. The keys are up, up and right. On the keyboard in its
default state, its W, W and D. Lara will grab onto and launch herself onto one
of the statues to the left, and dive for the last square before the landing on
the other side, but it falls away too, but she manages to grab one hand and
then two onto the secure ledge.

                                [MASTER PUZZLE]

Welcome to the master puzzle of the level.  Before you go too far, look left
and right. Immediately to Lara's left and right are statues. One is broke, the
other is not. That one has a big huge ball on top of it. Below that ball is a
grapple point. Grab it with Laraís grapple and give it a good yank to send the
ball, and statue tumbling. Now grab that ball and move it down the room towards
the other end. Notice three pads on the ground. These are where three balls go.
You have one ball, one is sitting in an indentation and one is missing
somewhere. For now, place the ball in any one of the three pads and watch the
outcome.
The two side ones split apart the huge statues to the sides and light beams
come out of the statues eyes and pass above the animal statue and hit the
ground beyond it. The middle pad rises the animal statue up a bit, you will see
what this does later. Just make sure you place at least one ball on the right
pad as this allows you to get the third and final ball. Place the other ball
onto one of the pads and then proceed to climb the ladder on the right statue.
It donít matter which pad the first or second ball is on as long as one is on
the right side pad as the left statue's ladder is broke and cannot be climbed.
Which is good since you cant get atop it anyway.
At the top of the right statue is the final ball. Once you have climbed the
ladder, you have to jump right and onto the face of the statue, then jump up
onto the top of the face. Now jump back onto the second half of the ladder and
continue climbing.
At the top, grab the ball and give it a push to get it to the floor. BOOM! Now
go back down to the floor and push the last ball onto the remaining pad to
activate the puzzle. Once activated, the middle statue opens up at the top,
above the ladder to reveal the guardian 'egg' with the ceremonial blade. Lara
examines the two pieces and notes it significance. Lara will pocked the
fragment and leave the small tunnel. She will then be notified that the
visitors have arrived and that she is eagerly awaiting to make them at home.

                                   [ESCAPE]

At the end of the little platform and to the right, looking out into the room,
are a set of two small ledges to grab onto. Jump and grab them and vault onto
the platform. Now perform a running jump onto the stairs that are broken at the
lower half. Climb up and onto the top of the statue. Go over to the other side
and jump onto the small platform beside the statue and up onto the ledge that
goes around the bend. Continue around and along the wall, jumping across gaps
until you reach ledges below Lara. Drop down all the way until Lara is on a
platform like what she was on just before. Turn around and you will see a rope.
Donít try this at home... jump out into thin air and grab the rope.

/$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$\
When Lara is on the rope, turn to the left and look at the opposite side wall.
You will notice a half broken platform with 2/3 ledges broken off. Climb the
rope up until Lara is level with the topmost ledge. Turn until Lara is facing
that ledge and start swinging. Make sure you get a good enough swing before
launching off the rope. If dont correctly Lara will grab hold of the ledge. If
dont incorrectly, you will be one ledge below the top one. If dont horribly
wrong... well that sucks. From the top most level, shimmy left and jump over
the broken parts of the ledge until you get to an opening above the ledge.
Jump up and onto the ledge and proceed into the tunnel. Make a right turn and
head up the slope until you reach another movable ball. Grab the ball and push
it onto the slope so it rolls down it. The ball will smash through the wall,
land on the platform below it, and then roll off and fall to the ground below.
Carefully jump down onto the platform where the ball fell from, jump across to
the right side statue and use the ladder to climb down to the floor. Now at the
bottom, grab the ball and place it next to the ball on the middle pad. This
will rise the animal in the centre even higher and reveal beneath it, the gold
reward. Grab it and then make your way all the way back to the rope. Sigh...
\$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$/
-{Gold 1/1}-

Halt Laraís swinging and turn to face the platform to the right. Swing and jump
onto it and be prepared to start shooting the mercs on the ground below Laraís
platform.

                              [NON-FLOODED ROOM]

Jump onto the slide and waste the two mercs there. Now go back down where you
came from before and waste another merc. Once you get back to the room which
was full of water, get ready to go in guns blazing. After wasting all three of
the mercs, rearm and heal and find the rope at the little waterfall. Climb up
it until you at the right height to swing onto the ledge. On the ledge go down
the passage and waste one more merc. Climb a ladder and keep climbing up until
you get to another merc. Waste him and beyond him lies the last rope. Its a
long rope but. After the long climb, there are a LOT of mercs at the old dig
site so be prepared to do a lot of gunning diving healing blah blah blah. Use
grenades if you must but waste em all. I believe there are about 12 or so of
them and a couple more on the level where the jeep is parked.

                            [LEVEL COMPLETE NOTES]

After they are all wasted you get a sob from Anya and some info about Laraís
next port of call. And its a cocktail party where Lara makes her biggest
decision of the day. What to wear to the party.

TIME TRIAL 12:15

                                [INTRODUCTION]

Lara starts this level off, getting out of an elevator in one sexy
looking jet black dress. (certainly shows off her digital assets :])
She starts chatting away and eventually you are given control.

NOTE: You cannot do much, other than walk around. All her moves will
not be performed whilst in her evening dress.

                                [LEVEL BEGINS]

Proceed to mingle into the crowd and make your way across the dance
floor to the bartender. Interact with him and he will tell Lara where
to find Nishimura. Nishimura is in his office on the right side of the
room next to the stairs. Go through the passage way and Lara will come
to a door. Interact with the door and Nishimura will greet you. After a
brief conversation Lara will leave the room. Upon re-entering the dance
floor area, Lara is greeted by a hoard of Takamoto's thugs. A short
conversation will ensue where Lara offers to obtain the missing peice
of the 'sword' from Takamoto. Takamoto refuses and Lara is shot at.
Lara ducks beneath the bar and proceeds to do surgury on her sexy dress
to make it practical and to allow easy access to her hidden weapons.
How she hid them in that barely there dress is beyond me. She kills one
of the thugs who comes to investigate where she has gone in one shot
and jumps up and prepares to waste the other thugs.

                                 [DANCEFLOOR]

There are about 5-6 thugs in the dance area to waste so waste away
until there are none left. To ensure you survive with the most health,
do all your tricks that you can acheive to make sure you as hard to hit
or target as possible. Even if you stuff a move up, your still moving
and therefore hard to hit. After the dust clears and they are all dead,
Nishimura will look around the corner from the passage way where his
office is to check what has happened. A brief conversation will happen
and Lara decides to attack Takamoto's sky scraper from the top.
After Lara has finished talking, grab and health kits or weapons you
spot on the ground and proceed to the elevator which is on the opposite
side of the dance floor to Nishimura's office. After she awaits the
elevator to reach the top floor she will exit and stand in front of a
glass enclosed room. Walk up to the room to find a nice looking bike.
Ducati of course. That is Lara's ride to be. To get to it we have to
exit the room and go outside.
To the left is the exit, so head through it and immediately after
exiting, turn right and you will notice that a small gas bottle with
the old exclamation mark which represents 'destroyable object' which
means blow it up from a safe distance! When it blows up it will take
with it the enclosure that a drain pipe was covered in. Now climb that
drain pipe, jump to the platform to the right of Lara at the top and
jump up onto the roof.

                                    [ROOF]

Once on the very roof you can use the RAD mode of the binocs to see
that a movable section of the glass roof exists right in the middle.

/%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%\
Before hopping down into the room with the bike, go up to the top most
part of the glass roof and jump up on the higher section of the roof.
On it you will find a wooden box, shoot it with Lara's guns and grab
the first bronze reward. Head back down to the glass roof.
\%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%/
-{Bronze 1/6}-

Go to the left of this peice and grapple and yank it. It will slide
across giving Lara access to the room with the bike. Jump down into the
room, go down the flight of stairs and mount the bike.

/%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%\
Just before you mount the bike, check behind the box with two chairs
sitting beside it. There is a bronze reward sitting just behind them.
\%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%/
-{Bronze 2/6}-

/#############################################################################\
On the opposite wall are 5 boxes tightly packed on the floor. Right in
the middle of them lies the first silver reward of the level.
\#############################################################################/
-{Silver 1/4}-

Now for some fun! Slowly take the bike out of the room via the glass
door that Lara could not pass through from the other side, turn right
and exit the room and out into the cold air of the night. I say slowly,
as hitting something at anything faster than a crawl causes Lara
damange or at high speeds, kills her. Take the bike out and around the
top of the building and you will notice a ramp that ends abruptly. Now
for some crazy shit! Take a small run up (this thing does 0-60 in like
jack-shit time!) and run up and onto the ramp.

                               [SKY SCRAPER HOP]

OK another interactive movie sequence. Whilst in the air, Lara will see
a horizontal pipe, and grapples onto it. Next she will release her
grapple after the bike crashes into the wall and will land just before
the wall. Finally she will notice the gas bottles start to fizzle and
burn and jump off the platform and onto a side platform to the left.
Now to accomplish this, at the prompts, press up or W, to grapple the
horizontal pole, down or S, to release the grapple and finally, left or
A to jump off the platform and onto a smaller platform.
Phew! That was close! Right, now face the planks of wood and horizontal
pole along the side of the building and jump onto the pole and swing up
and onto the platform at the same hieght as the pole.

/%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%\
On the lower level planks of wood, at the very end is a small wooden
crate which holds a bronze reward. Grab it and go back and up a level
to continue.
\%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%/
-{Bronze 3/6}-

From there, continue on the wooden planks and jump across the gap. Whip
out Lara's guns and fire at the sparkling circle ring that holds the
glass window in place, sending it falling all the way down the the
ground below. Now jump onto the next wooden plank and keep going until
you reach the end. If you look up, you will see a black line running
across the huge gap to the opposite building. Jump straight up and Lara
will grab onto the line and flying fox style zoom across the expanse
and land on the platform right beside the next building. (Dont try that
at home boys and girls!)
On the next platform you will see a small platform which is a little
too far to jump to. Never fear! Grapple hook is here! Grapple the
platform and give it a yank to send it swinging toward you in a back
and forth motion. Time it right and jump onto the platform. Its not
hard, trust me. Do the same with the next platform and you will come to
the corner of the building. Take a running jump out into thin air and
press the grapple key when it lights up with the prompt. Once grappled
to the overhanging metal thingy, stop your swinging. Turn around to the
right and a platform (which is solid) will be waiting for Lara. Swing
up and onto that and grab the next two platforms with the grapple the
same way you just did the previous two. At the final movie platform
take arunning jump into thin air and press the grapple key to start
swinging from some metallic object above Lara. Stop your swing and turn
right to notice a broken section of fencing where Lara can swing up and
onto the landing there. Once onto the landing get Lara's guns ready.

                             [TAKAMOTO'S BUILDING]

After walking forward a couple steps, Lara is greeted by a sight of 3
or more of Takamoto's thugs casually walking out into the terrace. Get
out Lara's guns or assault rifle and prepare to do some serious
brawling. Be warned about the two dogs that come after Lara, they are
pretty pathetic as an enemy but can really chew you up if you only
concentrate on the thugs. Waste the dogs first (poor dogs) and then the
thugs. Use the destroyable objects that surround the garden in the
centre of the courtyard to either hurt or kill the thugs whilst jumping
and rolling about. Another good idea would be to initiate the fight
with a nice grenade to soften them up.
Once they have been dealt with go down to the other end of the
courtyard and there should be a door to the right. Go through here and
immediately in front of Lara is a set of stairs.

/%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%\
Go down the stairs and look on the ground. There will be a wooden crate
which can be destroyed to reveal a bronze reward. Go back up the stairs
after you grab it.
\%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%/
-{Bronze 4/6}-

/#############################################################################\
Climb three flights of stairs until you come to a dead end. On the
right side is a part of the side fencing which is broken, allowing
access to the piping beyond. Jump down onto the piping, follow it
around until it comes to a wall. At the wall, further along it, is a
ledge that Lara needs to jump to. On the ledge shimmy along until you
reach its end, then jump backwards and from this set of piping, follow
it until you see a wooden box, shoot it and reveal a silver reward.
Jump back onto the ledge and drop down to a ledge below that one.
Release the grip and then turn right and proceed through the doors.
\#############################################################################/
-{Silver 2/4}-

Climb the stairs and turn right and through the doors and into
the next room. There are a few of Takamoto's thugs in here waiting for
some target practice. Throw a grenade or two to soften them up before
bringing out Lara's trusty duel pistols or assault rifle to bear. After
wasting all of the thugs - I believe there are about 6 or so - go and
inspect the large wall tv that takes up most of the opposite wall.

/%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%\
Before you tangle with the tv, go to the far left corner. There is a
wooden box that can be destroyed. Shoot it to reveal a bronze reward.
\%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%/
-{Bronze 5/6}-

/#############################################################################\
After you finished off all the thugs with guns, go up to the slightly
higher level and keep going until you find two lockers. Open the left
one to reveal a nice shiny silver reward.
\#############################################################################/
-{Silver 3/4}-

Notice how the very middle of it is shiny? Grapple it and give it a tug
to pull it off the wall. It will sway a short way before coming to a
halt. Give a little bit more of a convincing with Lara's guns by
shooting the support clamps on either top corners to send it flying
downwards.
Once the tv is down, go up onto either of the short stairs that lead to
a locked door and jump from the stairs to the back of the now fallen
tv. There are two more thugs on the little area behind the tv so be
prepared to waste them as fast as possible as they are partially
covered but the hieght of the tv.
After polishing off the two thugs you will notice a small door directly
opposite the large tv. Go through this door and do a 180 to face the
master puzzle of this level.

                                [MASTER PUZZLE]

Ahh now this looks complicated, you say! Actually no its not really, as
there is only one way to skin this cat, it makes it far less difficult
than the previous two master puzzles. The fact is, its linear - there
is only one way to do it and its pretty obvious every step of the way.
Well lets get on with it shall we.
To the left side of the door, as Lara exits the room, is a pipe that
goes upwards. Climb it as far as Lara will go, then look at the small
box to her right and jump to it. Lara will cling onto the side of it.
Shimmy around the side of it and jump up and onto the platform above
her. Then turn left to see the next platform which is on its end and
needs to be moved. Grapple the shiny part of it and give it a yank. It
will swing on its axis and lock into the flat horizontal position. Now
run up and jump onto the end of it. Lara will grab onto the edge of it.
Pull her up and move to the other end of the platform.
Jump to the next platform in her current direction and then climb the
ladder to the next level up. Turn around and notice the next shiny area
of the up ended platform. Grapple it and pull it to give Lara a
horizontal bar with which to jump onto and swing onto the platform
beyond it. On that platform is a vertical pipe. Once at the top of that
pipe, turn around and see the small platform with which to jump to.
After successfully jumping to that platform, look beyond it to see yet
another vertical piping just off to the left. At the top of that pipe,
if you look back the other direction you will notice a horizontal pipe
on the bottom side of the up ended platform. Jump onto this and the
platform will swiverl up and end up horizontal. Once its in place jump
back to the vertical piping and climb up again. At the top of the pipe,
jump onto the now horizontal platform but beware! The other side of
this platform acts like a pendulum. If Lara hangs too long on the other
end of the platform, it will turn back vertical and Lara will fall. And
fall a great distance down. So keep moving whilst you jump from that
platform to the next.
Now comes a little tricky part. The piping in front of Lara is not
entirely secure. And neither are the next railings that Lara will need
to jump to. At the very top of this pipe, look back across the building
and jump to one horizontal railing after another with no misses or else
Lara will fall to her death. Just jump straight to the first one as
soon as your at the top, swing once and jump to the next one and so on
until Lara is on the balcony.

                               [TAKAMOTO'S HOME]

OK time for some killin to happen. Revenge for having to take the
dangerous route. Enter the building and take a look at the bad guys who
have their backs to Lara. Move to the edge of the stairs and grab
Lara's assault rifle. Notice the chandelier above their heads? Hehe
guess what buddies?! Shoot the chandelier with the E or interact key to
send the chandelier crashing onto their heads. LOL!
Instead of going down the steps, go immediately right and around
the bend to shoot up the thugs that would snipe you from a balcony if
you had went down the stairs. Once they are taken care of, there are
only two out of the four down the bottom left to kill. Jump down and
waste em only Lara knows how.

/%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%\
Before you hop down to the lower level, there is a wooden box with a
bronze reward in it. Shoot it to get the reward.
\%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%/
-{Bronze 6/6}-

/#############################################################################\
Before you leave this area, check in the little room in the corner of
the room. One of the cupboards contains a silver reward, the last one
of the level.
\#############################################################################/
-{Silver 4/4}-

OK now in the next room, which is shaped like an L, there is a death
trap with an easy fix. At the middle of the L is a ball, and below the
L is a small room with computers and a button on the wall. The button
activates the sprinkler system and illuminates the infrared laser trip
wires across the hall at the top of the L. The computers will allow you
to view security cameras around there area. At the top of the L shaped
room is a sentry gun. If Lara was to move into the laser trip wires,
the gun would track her and shoot her. To fix this, grab the ball and
move it in front of you whilst you go through the trip wires. The gun
will fire, but the rounds will only hit the ball, not Lara.
After you have finished going through the trip wires, the gun will
cease fire and go silent. Brilliant!
Go around the bends and into the next room to notice a big huge dragon
above a long table. There is a trick to this little dragon. As you
enter the room, Takamoto will yell at Lara from behind the glass. Lara,
as usual gets her wise cracking tongue out and fires Takamoto up. As
soon as the cinematic is over, three thugs will enter the room from the
opposite direction. All of em are shotgun weilding ones, so stay out of
range and pound them. After they drop, jump onto the table and look for
the shiny metal object underneath the dragon. From a position below its
tail section, and facing its front end, grapple the dragon and give it
a good solid yank. The dragon will swing and just manage to smash the
glass. Ahh the exit to the room!
Climb up and onto this new level and go around the bend, ignoring the
elevator for an instant. Around the bend and on a table are three guns,
collect them if you need the ammo.

/$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$\
Just before leaving this little room, grab the big reddish box that
looks like a chest of drawers or something like that. Bring it all the
way back to the elevator. Push it over the edge and watch it drop. When
it smashes open, it will reveal the gold reward for this level! Well
done!
\$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$/
-{Gold 1/1}-

Grab and ammo you find and if you find any health kits about, replenish
your stock. If you have 95% health and the max of 3 med packs, use one
and collect another off the ground. The next bit you will probably need
every inch of life. Enter the elevator when done.

                                  [TAKAMOTO]

As soon as Lara exist the elevator Takamoto explains his story of the
sword fragment. Lara cares not and explain thus. Unfortunately Takamoto
then explains why it is so prized by him. With a physical demonstration
of course! He launches a bolt of green energy from the sword
fragment/staff at Lara and races off. Lara dodges the bolt and control
is then given to you.
As soon as you have control, move Lara behind one of the big ass
statues and then climb the pole that lies behind each one. There are
guns on the lower level which automatically target and fire at Lara, so
speed is of importance here. As soon as you are at the top of the pole,
jump backwards and she will be on the same level as Takamoto. Whip out
your guns if he is near enough for a red targeting reticle to appear on
him and fire. If not holster them as they slow you down. Remember,
which Takamoto, speed is of the essence.
Now the trick to winning over this guy, is the fact that he fires 3
types of green bolts - one at head hieght which you roll to avoid - one
at knee hieght which you can easily jump over - and a vertical one
which Lara needs to side step or run to the side to avoid. Try to avoid
as many as possible as they take about 1/4 to 1/3 of Lara's health off
each hit.
Now, when you are up at his hieght, race up to about 10m from him and
pull out your assault machine gun and pummel him with everything Lara
has. Always be aware to avoid the green bolts in the described ways.
Roll for the one at head hieght and jumping the ones at knee hieght. If
you get too close, Takamoto will launch a vertical green bolt at Lara
which you need to side step to avoid. Follow these steps and he
shouldnt be too hard. Remember, this guide is designed for the hardest
difficulty. So if I can relatively easily kill him consecutively, it
shouldnt be too hard for you either. Just keep in mind that avoiding
his green bolts is more important than scoring hits on him.

                            [LEVEL COMPLETE NOTES]

After Takamoto is lying on the ground dying, he curses Lara but she
just ignores him. She grabs the staff, snaps it in half and suddenly
notices Nishimura in a helicopter above the building waving to her.
Lara grabs onto the rope ladder and climbs aboard. Zip tells her that
Rutland is in Ghana, Africa and that may be her next port of call.

TIME TRIAL 20:00

                                [INTRODUCTION]

As soon as the cinematic finishes, move Lara down the path until she
stands before a huge drop into a small bay with an enourmous and
beautiful waterfall. A cinematic will play with Lara gorging her eyes
on the beautiful sight. After a moment, Lara will catch a glimpse of
Rutlands helicopter and the game will be on.

                                  [MECHANISM]

Now, perform a nice swan dive all the way down into the pool at the
bottom and come back up for air. As soon as Lara is at the surface move
her to the middle island and climb up.

/%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%\
Before you get too engrossed in the mechanism thingy on the island, in
the pool at the bottom, are two bronze rewards - one is on the right
side of the island. Jump in and swim down to it.
\%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%/
-{Bronze 1/5}-

/%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%\
The other bronze reward in the pool, is the on the other side of the
island in the pool at the bottom. Jump in and swim down to that one
too. Swim back to the island for now.
\%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%/
-{Bronze 2/5}-

There are two platforms to the right side - one above the other. Climb
them and at the top of the second one jump to the small rope in the
middle of the mechanism thingy. Lara's miniscule weight will pull down
the latch securing the wall thingy in place. Once that is done, release
the rope and then grapple the top shiny bit of the wall thingy and give
it a good pull.
It will turn over and a cinematic will play with the entire wall of
water on the waterfall parting to reveal a gigantic temple. Very
impressive! After a few seconds, Rutland will appear on a distant level
up on the temple and have a good old chat with Lara. Lara will beckon
for him to come down and chat where she is, but of course, he refuses.

/#############################################################################\
Before you go into the temple itself, move onto the bridge thingy Lara
pulled down, and jump off to either side. Swim beneath the bridge and
you will see a small tunnel below the island. Swim into it and you will
see the first silver reward. Nab it and either turn around and get back
onto the bridge or keep swimming forward and get out that way.
\#############################################################################/
-{Silver 1/4}-

                                   [TEMPLE]

Go into the temple and down the steps turning right at the bend. When
you come to a pool of water, look into the distance. You will notice
some ropes and a small raft. The raft can be grappled. Do so and pull
it all the way to Lara. Jump aboard and then run and jump to the nearby
rope. Swing on that rope until you can successfully jump to the next
from. From that rope swing and jump to the solid ground beyond.
At the other end, go down the corridor and around the bend. Up the
stairs and through the doorwar. Keep going around the bend until you
come to some weird looking horizontal spikes sticking out from the
wall. This is actually a trap that has been stopped mid action. But
something is holding up the works. We will find out soon enough. Jump
over them and continue down the hall and turn right. More suspended
traps. Jump and roll past them. You will notice that Lara stepped on a
pressure plate that opened the door. You need to be quick getting past
the suspended spikes before the door closes. Roll past the door if you
must.

                                  [MERC CAMP]

As soon as you are past the door, run behind the wall of boxes before
Lara is seen. Plan your attack on the group of mercs and then race
across the bridge to the right. You need to get to the far side as soon
as possible because they have a fixed gun up on the upper platform
which they can bring to bear on Lara when she is seen.
A good little trick is to use the explosive barrel at the other side to
take out a few mercs in one shot. Wait until the merc are the bottom
moves as close to that barrel as possible then aim precisely at the
barrel and with one or two shots BOOM! One merc dead by the explosion
and a second or third from the ensuing collaplse of the level above!
As soon as you start shooting, the mercs will fire back. There are two
at the bottom right, three at the second level - one will use the heavy
machine gun emplacement - and one that wanders across the bridge and
back to the barrel below the second level. Waste em all on the ground
and move up to the landing on the right side of the second level. Climb
up an turn left to face the last two on this side. After they have been
dealt with, grab the gun emplacement and fire on the two new mercs that
have appeared from where Lara came from. Waste em all and enjoy it.

/%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%\
On the landing which you just climbed up onto, there is a bronze reward
staring Lara in the face. Show it whos boss by grabbing it.
\%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%/
-{Bronze 3/5}-

Now you can either use the machine gun emplacement to shoot the pillar
next to the blocked up water wheel thingy or use the rope to swing a
boot it onto the wheel. Either way a cinematic will show the pillar
hitting the wheel, the other pillar breaking, the spikes in the tunnel
where Lara came from moving again, and a tunnel up higher with spikes
that are not moving. If you are on the rope swing and jump to the
wheel. If not, jump onto the rope and swing to the wheel anyway. Wait
until you are right at the other side of the wheel by simply hanging on
and when the wheels spin starts to move Lara away from the far rope,
jump to it.

                                   [TROLLEY]

On the rope, jump to the nearby platform and turn right. You will
notice a kind of trolley hanging from the ceiling. Grapple it and pull
it towards Lara. Jump on and then grapple the solid metal barrel on the
next platform ahead. When in range, jump to the platform.
Now since the works arent working, we need to go and make it work! Turn
around and then jump to the rope. Swing and jump to the waterwheel
(which has not got water!) and then swing and jump to the other side
of the wheel. Now swing and jump to the ridged ladder and start
climbing up.
Once at the top, find the next ridged ladder and climb that up as far
as it goes and find the ledge to the left of the ladder and jump to it.
Once on the ledge shimmy around a little to the left and jump up to the
ledge directly above it. Now shimmy around the corner and position Lara
below the rung ladder, ready to jump up to it.
On this ladder, continue up and rise up to the level above it. Once up
in the spillway, continue down the corridor and stop at the end of the
level. Whip out Lara's guns and look for the dangerous creature below.
Shoot it and jump down into the area below. Notice the small raft on
the ground to Lara's diagonal left.

                                  [SPILLWAY]

OK, turn Lara around to the right and find the small steps that have
been broken off half way. Go to these and jump up and climb onto the
top of these. Go down the other side of the steps and around the bend.

/%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%\
Just on the corner around the bend is the fourth bronze reward. Grab it
and continue around the bend.
\%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%/
-{Bronze 4/5}-

On the bend you will notice a couple blocks, this is a stepping stone
for where you have to go. Go around the back of them and climb on top
to find a suspended pair of huge blocks. Jump to the first and wait
until the second block rises to about head hieght before jumping up
onto it. The reason for waiting is obvious once you are on the second
block. You now have access to the ridged ladder beyond it. As soon as
possible, jump up onto the ridged ladder and rise up onto the level
above it.
Once at the top a small cinematic will play showing the water, pully
system, spillway gate, second raft, rope for the pully system and the
exit which Lara came from.
From where Lara is, turn around to the left and notice the pillar has a
small ledge for which Lara may grab onto. Jump to it and shimmy around
the corner. Release her grip and she will fall to the ledge below it
and grab onto it. Look to the left and find the next ledge with which
Lara can jump to. Release her grip when she is on that ledge and she
will grab onto the next ledge down. Finally, release her grip again and
she will fall to the floor.

                                   [RAFTING]

Turn around and you will see a small raft - the second raft we saw
before. Grapple it to bring it closer to Lara and jump onto it. Once on
the raft, look for the pillar with the metal lining. Grapple it and
pull Lara towards it. Once Lara is on the move, look through the
opening to the left - the raft will drift through it anyway. Once
through the opening look for the next pillar to grapple.

/#############################################################################\
Just before Lara jumps onto the platform from the raft, jump into the
water and, when looking at the metallic pillar, if you look diagonally
back to the left, across the pool, is a low ledge that Lara can climb
out of water. Go there, turn around to the right and up on the higher
level is a silver reward. Go back to the second metallic pillar when
your done.
\#############################################################################/
-{Silver 2/4}-

When Lara is close enough to the platform that is next to the metallic
lined pillar, jump to it. Look to the left wall and find the ridged
ladder leading up into the distance. Climb this ladder to the very top
and be prepared to do a blind jump. I had to release the direction keys
and press jump to make a successful backwards jump onto the suspended
block so maybe you might have to do the same. Once on the block await
the correct hieght of the next block like before and once it reaches
head hieght, jump onto it. As soon as Lara is on this block, like
before, run up and jump onto the ladder or the platform above it
directly.

/%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%\
When Lara gets onto the next platform, just behind a pillar is a bronze
reward. Nab it and continue.
\%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%/
-{Bronze 5/5}-

As soon as Lara is on the platform the grapple swing icon should
appear, indicating that Lara may grapple and swing from a metallic item
above the next gap. Run and jump/grapple swing to the next platform. On
this platform, you will see another pillar with a groove in it that
Lara can jump to and hang from. On that ledge, go around the corner and
drop to the ledge below it. Around the bend on this pillar, jump up to
the ledge above it and then backwards onto the ledge directly behind
Lara. Shimmy around the corner and onto the ledge on the wall itself.
Drop down a level and move right, jumping across the broken gap. Once
at the end of this ledge, jump up to the ledge above it and then jump
right and onto the platform beyond.

                                [SMALL PUZZLE]

On this platform is a pressure button that activates a mechanism on the
statue beside the platform. The mechanism is in fact some form of
restraints on the statue. Apply pressure and the restrain closest to
the button will release, allowing movement. Also applying pressure to
the plate turns the platform beneath the corresponding restraint. For
the one closest to Lara, it will turn over, dropping its block to the
floor below, turn one more time and stop.
Once the moving platform has ceased movement - face it and run/jump to
it and without delay, jump to the solid platform beyond. Once on this
platform, jump to the next moving platform and again to the solid
platform beyond that. On this platform, you will notice another
pressure plate but also a small movable block. Grab this block and move
it onto the nearby button and watch the outcome.
The closest restraint will open and the platform before it will turn
over. Once it has finished turning over, jump to the platform with the
first button. Jump on it and release the other restraint. As soon as
its all the way open, race to the middle platform in front of the
statue and grapple the small circle in the middle of its chest and yank
it as far as it will go. You dont have a lot of time to acheive this
before one of the restrainst closes again so be fast.
Once this has been acheived, a short cinematic will play, showing the
water, which is now rising enough to start pouring all the way back to
the water wheel back near the start of the temple.
Move to the far button platform with the block on it and turn the
right. If you look a little lower you will notice two more blocks
suspended from the roof. Jump to the first, await the second before
jumping to it, and finally to the ridged ladder and up onto that level.
Now, basically jump into the water from here and make your way all the
way back to the water wheel which now has water. Since you already know
the steps involved in getting where Lara is now so I wont bother giving
surpurfluous information.

                             [RETURN TO THE WHEEL]

Once back at the ridged ladder before the water wheel, climb down it
and near the bottom a small cinematic will play with the spiked trap
now active. Wonderful. Jump to the wheel, across it to the other side,
onto the rope and onto the platform beyond.
OK this part is a little tricky but can easily be solved. It involves
spike traps and spinning blades. The spike traps involves timing.
Observe the timing of the spikes and start moving Lara as soon as the
spikes are just starting to move. Do a roll to make sure that Lara
passes unharmed. Once past the spikes, its the spinning blades. This
one looks tricky but a sly bit of thinking solves this without breaking
a sweat. Just before the blades is a large block - grab it and move it
into the blades. Cha-ching! The blades hit it and cease spinning. Be
careful not to go to far or the blades will touch Lara from behind. As
soon as all or just one side of the trap has ceases spinning, jump onto
the block and proceed past them. Keep going past the stairs and bends
until the next spinning blades trap. This time the block is sitting in
the wall just before the bend in the corridor. Grab it and move it into
the blades just far enough to stop all or one side of them. Jump onto
it as before and leave em in Lara's dust. Now comes another of those
interactive movie sequences where Lara is controlled by you but your
vision is attached to the dangerous object. This time its a bug huge
ball AKA Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark. Do just as
Doctor Jones does and race through all the dead traps. Immediately move
to the right side of the corridor and jump the dead spike trap. Then
move to the other side of the corridor and roll beneath the dead spike
trap. Now race to the small gap further down and jump over it. From
then on a cinematic will play with Lara racing through the gap beyond
the pit of spikes and diving to the side allowing the ball to pass by
her safely. "I've missed Ghana!"

/#############################################################################\
On this platform where the ball went flying off the edge, you will
notice on its way down it knocked a small peice of rock off a platform
below the one Lara is on. This is a hint. Look to the left and you will
see a ridged ladder going down. If you go down it, and search the area
below, you will find a nice silver reward. NICE!
\#############################################################################/
-{Silver 3/4}-

                                  [POST BALL]

OK, on the platform Lara is on now, there is a pole sticking out from
the wall to the right of it. Jump to it and then jump to the small
ledge beyond. Once on it go around the bend by shimmying and jump up to
the level above it. Go around the bend and jump across the gap,
backwards, onto the ledge opposite Lara. Very quickly jump up to the
ledge above Lara and jump backwards onto the horizontal pole before
Lara is crushed beneath a falling rock.
Swing to the next pole and onto the next ledge. Lara will attempt to
contact Zip again but will not succeed. Unforunately neither Zip nor
Allister are able to reply. Turn right on the platform and jump to the
suspended trolley. From this, jump to the platform slightly below Lara.
The trolley will lower slightly, allowing Lara to easily jump onto the
level from where she is. Run and jump onto the next trolley and then
onto the next level platform.
Turn around to the right and jump to the horizontal pole, then the
ledge right next to it. Shimmy around the bend and jump up to the ledge
above it. Now be quick as another rock is ready to drop onto Lara, so
quickly shimmy right and jump onto the awaiting horizontal pole. Jump
from this pole, to the next one across and slightly above, then back to
the pole slightly higher and to the left.
Finally jump onto the awaiting ledge and very quickly move around the
bend before the falling rock pounds Lara from above. Jump to the ledge
above this one and go around the bend again. Finally jump from this
ledge to the opposite platform which, thankfully is fully solid.
Go into the tunnel entrance and down the steps. A cinematic will play
with Lara recovering one of her parent's little medallions and again
attempts to contact Zip. No luck still. Proceed down the corridor.

                                 [DARK TUNNEL]

Turn the Personal Light Source on and be wary of pits. There are two of
them, and Lara must grapple swing across both of them. Do so and
eventually you will come across a bridge with 3 mercs guarding it.
Waste them and cross the bridge. Heal/re-arm and continue down the
passage and finally out into another open area.
Once Lara is outside again, turn right and jump straight onto the
horizontal pole and then the next one in the line. From that one, jump
to the ledge nearby.

/#############################################################################\
From this ledge, you should be able to jump across to the ledge on the
other side of the small waterfall coming out of a pipe. When you reach
it, let go. Keep Lara where she is and look to the left of the ledge
Lara was just on. There is a door of some kind. Not for long. Throw a
grenade to blow it away. When its gone, there is a silver reward just
behind the door. Grab it and move back across the small waterfall and
onto the original ledge.
\#############################################################################/
-{Silver 4/4}-

Now go up one ledge, go around the bend, up another 2 ledges, around a
corner, up one more ledge and backwards jump onto a horizontal pole.
Jump to the next pole in the line and then finally onto a platform
beyond. Now for some fun. Walk up to the barrels and grapple every one
on the other bank of the river. Yank em all and ungrapple when they are
in the water. Do this to all of them on the other side of the river.
Now cross the bridge and do the same again. The reason for this will be
apparent shortly.

                                [BIG WATERFALL]

Get ready for some gunnin. Go to the steps on the wall side of the
river and pass down in the gap and start pummeling the mercs. there is
a miniboss merc here and he has a brand new gun. Dont attack until you
can get a red reticle as you are simply wasting too many bullets when
the reticle is grey. Just keep murdering them until the three mercs on
your part of the area are gone. Now keep going down here until you
reack a box at the end of the platform. From here you should be able to
get a red reticle for the merc and miniboss merc on the platform beyond
the gap. If not move out of sight and back again. Now comes the pain
the butt part. The barrels you pulled into the river destroyed the crap
the mercs had dangling from the ropes. Thus allowing you to do the
unthinkable. Jump out into nothingness and onto those two ropes. Jump
to the first and then the second and finally onto the platform beyond.
Once on this platform, turn left and go over the small bridge. Grab the
new gun if you like but it will most likely only have 3 rounds so be
prepared to go back for your previous gun or salvage a gun from a merc.
Go into the tunnel and waste another leopard. Go to the left stairs and
climb up the broken part. Another ball will fall down the stairs.
Either jump downwards to the right or move Lara to the left wall to
avoid it. Now jump to the rope in the middle of the room. Either jump
to the opposite stairs or back up to the previous stairs a little
higher up. At the top is a button that opens the door when pressure is
constantly applied to it. Jump on it and wait until its all the way up.

/$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$\
Just before you enter the next room, that big ass door you passed just
before, the one behind the rope? Well that button dont just open the
small door next to the button! It opens the big ass door below! Go down
and enter it. As long as you get in you wont be locked in or out. Grab
the gold reward to finish off this levels rewards.
\$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$/
-{Gold 1/1}-

When you enter the room, Rutland greets you and begins his monologue.
The anger in Lara's eyes is obvious. Time to do battle.

                                   [RUTLAND]

OK now the trick with Rutland is his ability to heal himself. To heal
himself, he jumps onto a platform and initiates the healing process.
What actually heals him are little nodes on the underside of those four
platforms. These platforms are lightly protected from damange by a
layer of rock. Now heres the trick. Blast the rock away, then grapple
and yank the nodes from the platforms and voila! 1 less healing
platform. Trouble is Rutland moves about all the time and attempts to
attack you with his peice of the sword. As well as this he throws
grenades at you. 1 to three at a time. First off, whilst he is away
from Lara blast one of the protective shields from the nodes and yank
it off. Now start back on Rutland. He will retire from the fight and
heal himself on the platform.  Use this time to either waste all the
shields at once then yank them all one after another or do each node
seperately. Its up to you. Just dont let Rutland get close and watch
out for the grenades.

                            [LEVEL COMPLETE NOTES]

Lara is not too happy with Rutland and says that the next time Lara and
Rutland meet, she will not be in a happy mood. :) Zip finally reaches
Lara and communicates some information about what happened. Its off to
the cold places of the world. Lara speeds off on her bike toward her
new goal. Kazakhstan.

                                [INTRODUCTION]

Hello and welcome to sunny alice springs! After a brief talk to Zip and
co, Lara comes to a break in a wire fence and looks down upon the
mayhem unfolding below. The mercs of the previous couple encounters are
fighting it out with the resident russian guards - and winning. Lara
insists on going down and crashing the party. Lara prepares to
parachute down and commence an attack from above.

                                [LEVEL BEGINS]

Lara stands on the edge of a cliff, facing the encampment swarming with
merc guards. Simply run and jump off the cliff - Lara has a parachute.
This initiates another interactive movie sequence where you must press
the down or back key at the appropriate time - when the white arrow
points down on the screen. About 30 metres up from the ground the arrow
will show up allowing Lara to glide onto the roof of the nearby
building. There is a nice gun emplacement sitting right there ready to
give Lara spruce of life!
Grab the gun and start wasting left and right. At last count, standing
on the roof, you will encounter about 11-12 guards and about 6 more
when you leave the gun and jump down to the ground.

/%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%\
Before you jump down, or if your already down on the ground, use the
boxes beside the buildings to get back up, from the gun emplacement,
turn right and jump up to the higher roof. Now look to the pylon
nearby. There is a horizontal pole on it that Lara can jump to and
swing to the boxes beyond it. Once on the boxes, jump up and onto the
roof. There is a single box here. Shoot it and gain the bronze reward.
\%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%/
-{Bronze 1/5}-

Waste em all and jump down and be ready to go down guns blazing. Empty
those clips at em as they will just keep comin. There are about 4 in
the building when you get to it. Race in, rolling and diving and gunnin
until they are all suckin dirt.
When all are lying face down, go back out and start collecting ammo and
health packs as needed. Like always if you have 3 med packs already,
but only have like 95% health, and you see a health pack on the ground,
heal and then pick it up as you dont often get a chance to backtrack -
and even then the weapons and items disappear soon after you leave the
area.

/%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%\
In the back closet of the building with the popped up glass roof area,
there is a glowing sphere, as funny as it looks, thats the reward
object for this level. Grab it and go back to the main room.
\%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%/
-{Bronze 2/5}-

In the main room of the building, you will see a ladder in the middle
of the room. Climb it but beware in a gun nest nearby is a soldier with
a bead on Lara. Jump up and out of the roof vent and waste him as soon
as you see him. Jump on the roof covering and jump to the nest. Climb
up and you will be greeted by at least 3-4 mercs on the ground below
you firing up at Lara. Either waste em all from where Lara is now or go
down to the roof to the left or down to the fence to the far right via
the cabling above Lara's head.

                                    [NEST]

Either way it dont matter. After the 3 mercs are dealt with jump down
onto the ground past the fence. You can use the ground gun emplacement
if you so desire but the position makes it pretty useless.

/#############################################################################\
Go right around the bend in the road once you are on the ground and
find the barrel behind a locked wire gate. Beside the gate is a small
damaged section of the fence which is the clue. Step back and fire at
the barrel beyond the gate and the ensuing explosion takes care of the
gate and the surrounding fence with it. Inside the boxes to the left is
a silver reward.
\#############################################################################/
-{Silver 1/3}-

Go into the building diagonally opposite from the nest and the building
below it. Lara will supprise a merc guarding two russian military
doctors. The cinematic will play showing Lara diving to the side, gun
down the merc and then the russians talking with Lara about the fact
that she is american/british and whether to give her the access codes.
They give in and give her the codes and Lara is on her way. When Lara
exits the building, be wary as there will be about 3-4 mercs so start
wasting as soon as Lara gets out of the building.

                                   [BARRELS]

When all are done, go up to the gate with the keypad on the left.
Interact with it and Lara will key in the code. As soon as the gate
opens, endless barrels will roll down the hill and explode at the open
gate. Pick your timing and run through the gate and to the left side of
the road. Run up the hill and either kill the mercs or blow up the
barrels. Barrels are far more easy and more satisfying. Once they are
all gone, enter the building, collecting all the supplies you need on
the way. Walk up to the middel control panel and a cinematic will
ensue showing Lara access the database and satelite imagery showing the
location of the next area and the route the train will take to get
there.
Apparently the train is about to leave so grab your wits and run to the
ladder nearby that leads to the roof. On the top, stand on the open
hatch and jump to the nearby ladder, which leads to a telephone line
above.

                                [TRAIN STATION]

As soon as your on the telephone pylon, grab the line and Lara will
slide all the way down it flying fox style. At the next stop go around
to the left side and jump on the cable again. At the end and on top of
the first building again, jump down fast. Waste as many as you can as
fast as you can on your way to the train tunnel. Dont worry you cant
catch the train itself. But Lara has a better plan. You only need to
get to the bike, which is at the entrance to the train tunnel, as fast
as possible. Forget about the mercs. Jump on the bike and the next
portion of the level will continue when you start off down the tunnel.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
WARNING - I have received an email about a bug in this section - though
i cannot confirm it as I havent experienced it - but regardless its
good to point out that saving the game here before you enter the tunnel
on the bike, is a very good idea. A possible bug which I have sketchy
information about lies beyond. As the information states that at a
certain section beyond, if Lara drives the bike off a cliff - obviously
to her death - the game activates a checkpoint therefore saving the
game automatically whilst in the air, on a one way ticket to Lara's
death. Upon reloading the game via the checkpoint, Lara is again in
midair, falling to her death. I would assume that some people may have
experienced it as a few websites also mention it. As to whether it was
fixed in 1.1 or 1.2 - well unless the readme states that this has in
fact been fixed, I have no way of ascertaining even if the bug really
exists. You are therefore forewarned.
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                                    [BIKE]

OK well I cant really provide help for this section, just like the last
bike run. Basically, keep yourself healed at all times and always go
after heal packs. Watch out for obstacles and objects in your road. Use
the explosive gas bottles to kill off enemies if you get the chance.
Keep firing at any bad guys you get a red reticle on - remember you
have unlimited ammunition so empty those clips on em. There are two
types of enemies here, bikes and the four wheel drive ones with guys
firing from the sunroof. Waste the bikes whenever you see em and watch
out for the bikes if you kill em in front of you. With the vehicles,
they simply cease pursuit if you kill the gunner. Watch out for the
vehicles attempting to ram or side-swipe you into an obstacle.
Soon enough the train will run into a tunnel and you will have to take
the road to the right of the tunnel. From now on, there are no enemies
to kill so holster Lara's weapons. Instead, now direct you full
attention to riding as the road becomes tricky. The road often splits
in two, one going level and sometimes having a wooden suspended bridge
and the other going up to a higher level before coming back down. The
latter one has signposts which slow Lara down a bit but the safest
route is entirely up to you as both have dangerous points.
After a while the road will trek back left and finally intersect with
the train. When this happens a launch ramp will be there so that Lara
may launch into the air above the train and land on the other side of
the tracks. As soon as she hits the snow on the other side of the
tracks, turn right and go over an identical ramp to go back to the
other side. Continue down a kind of tunnel which rises a bit above the
train allowing Lara to ride her bike onto the train itself.

                                [ON THE TRAIN]

When Lara is on the train slow down a bit and run up the ramp onto the
carriages and finally down a ramp back to a lower level. When Lara
reaches this lower level, a cinematic will play with Lara getting off
the bike and walking up the length of a couple carriages and onto the
locomotive. The driver merc will fire at Lara but not realise the
danger ahead. Lara sees it and ducks. The merc doesnt and dies. Lara's
jacket catches fire and is forced to remove it.
Now plays an interactive movie whereby Lara needs to duck from an
oncoming beam across the top of the tunnel that the train goes in.
Next, Lara shoots the coupling holding a giant drum that will take the
brunt of the trains momentum. Finally Lara needs to grapple to the left
and swing off the train and onto a platform to safety.

                              [THE TRAIN STATION]

As soon as Lara finishes her little cinematic about the fact that she
survives and is unharmed, turn around and you will notice two boxes
sitting at Lara's feet. You dont need to get down from where Lara is so
look back in the direction the train came from - specifically the roof.
If you look a little to the right you will notice a rope suspended from
the roof with a shiny peice of metal at the top. Grapple this and bring
it closer to Lara. Bring it in as close as possible and then jump onto
the rope. Await the rope to return back to its original position and
then start swinging for the platform at the opposite side of the room
from the previous platform. Once on this platform find the ladder to
the left and climb to the top. At the top, look right and the yellow
billboard type thing is a perfect place to jump and grab onto. From the
billboard metal wall, shimmy left until you get to the end and jump
left onto the horizontal poles. From this pole, jump to the next one,
and then onto an identical yellow billboard type thing.
Once on this, simply let go and turn around to view your new
surroundings. At the far end of the room, back towards where the
locomotive would be, you should see a ! indicating a destroyable
object. We will come to that soon.

/%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%\
Drop down to the ground from here and look in the closest corner. There
should be a wooden crate there with a bronze reward. Shoot the crate
and grab the reward. Climb back up to the platform via the metal box.
\%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%/
-{Bronze 3/5}-

Find the identical rope like before and use the grapple to grab it and
bring it to Lara so that she may jump onto it. Once on the rope, wait
for it to bring Lara out over the fire and then start swinging for the
platform beyond. When Lara lands on the platform, bring her guns out
and blast the fan we saw before. This is our exit. Now jump to the
ledge below the fan, jump up to the fan level and up and into the air
duct. Once in the game will indicate a checkpoint.

                                  [AIR DUCTS]

OK time for a tricky part. Go down the tunnel and around the bend and
keep going down a small slope until you are facing an electric circuit
across the tunnel. This is a sign of things to come. Jump over the
first one, roll under the second one, and you will come to a steel gate
with a dead man behind it. This scientist has been dead for some time.
You can grab the health pack if you need it and pick up the peice of
paper. Lara reads the peice of paper - "The experiment has gone wrong.
The KGB sealed the facility."
Turn left and jump off the level and onto a horizontal bar. From
this bar jump to the rope and ensure you get enough swing before
jumping up to the level beyond. Slide down the slope and jump over the
electric cables on the way down. At the bottom, turn right and roll
underneath the cables. Shoot the fan before continuing. Turn left and
continue down the slope, jumping over some more cables before shooting
the fan at the bottom. Jump some more cables, roll under even more
cables and turn right at the end. Down the slope, jumping over yet more
cables before jumping out off the ledge and onto another horizontal
pole.

/%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%\
Let go here and fall to the ground. Shoot the crate and grab the bronze
reward. Now jump onto the box here, turn around and jump grapple onto
the grapple icon. Turn around and swing up to the next ledge above the
box to continue.
\%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%/
-{Bronze 4/5}-

Jump and grapple at the prompting icon and start swinging. Get a
good swing before attempting to swing up and onto the higher ledge
beyond. On this ledge, go down the slope, shooting the fan at the base
before arriving at the end of the tunnel system. Jump off the ledge and
down to the final lower level.

                               [GENERATOR ROOM]

/#############################################################################\
Just to the side of the entrance you just came through is two white
boxes attached to the wall. Jump on the first one, and vault up to the
next one. Now shimmy along the platform to the left until you can lift
Lara up onto the platform. Turn right and follow the path. A shiny
metal handle will glow beyond a small gap in the platform. Grapple and
pull the handle to oepn the cage. Jump to the cage and shoot the crate
to find and grab the silver reward there. Jump back down when done.
\#############################################################################/
-{Silver 2/3}-

In this big room, you will find a big map on the right side wall, but
its written in Russian.
Here is the translation:
"Plan of the Electrical Systems #4
* Electromagnetic Cannon,
* Tower,
* Road/Track,
* Power,
* Electricity."
Thanks to "Nero" for the translation.

This map is actually a powered wall map with glowing dots - but of
course, with no power it dont glow! Time to get that power on. First
up, upon entering the room, turn right and find a low metal cabinet. We
arent interested in whats in it - we want to get on top of it. From the
top jump and grab the metal box on the left wall, then jump to the
platform to Lara's right. Climb onto this platform and then jump
further down the side of the room to the next platform. Turn right and
go past the machine and on the right side of the platform, and from
this vantage point, on the left side of the generator is a rope
dangling from a small crane near the roof. Jump from the platform to
this rope and Lara will bring down a piping that connects to the
generator. This is a fuel line and will give the generator power. Lara
will disconnect from the rope when she has acheived the goal. Now go
around to the other side of the generator and find the shiny metal
circle on its side. This is the generator starter - grapple it and pull
it to start the generator. Power will come online and the map on the
opposite wall will glow. Go back to the Map and note that the Russian
cryllic equivalent of Electricity is glowing - we have Electricity. But
the node for Power is flashing. Power is not getting through. Also note
that a door in the room, that was locked is now unlocked.
Also take note of the map layout. We are in the room with the solid red
big red dot. This is the generator room and since the light symbol is
solid red - its online - we have acheived one of 5 goals. The next goal
is through a door in the left side of the room, whilst looking at the
map, and back to the south. Thats where we are going.

                                     [GAS]

Since this place is literally falling apart - as all Russian buildings
do - coolant is leaking all over the place. In the corridor through the
door, the gas is spilling into the area we need to pass through. To get
past this, we need to go over it. In the corridor is a small platform
above the gas, jump up onto it and jump to the horizontal bar directly
over the gas. From here, jump to the next platform and then to the
next horizontal pole. Jump to the rope and finally onto another
platform. There is another small platform nearby in the corridor around
the bend. Jump to this and stop. Look up and to Lara's right. You will
see a spark moving across the horizontal pole that is across the right
wall. We need to shimmy all the way along this whilst avoiding the
spark as its kinda damaging. Jump on the next platform and onto it when
the spark is ahead of Lara and shimmy as fast as she can to the other
end. Once at the end, let go and find the next platform at head hieght.
Now there is a pole going right through the middle of the corridor here
that also has a moving spark on it. Do the same here as before. Jump
down from the pole onto a small platform and then down to the ground
again next to the door. Go through the door and a cinematic will play.

                                 [GRAVITY GUN]

Lara will see Amanda doing something, and attempt to reason with her,
but she is not in a reasoningwith mood. PMS I guess. She will get
pissed and order her guards to stop her and let loose a grenade and
destroy the bridge. Fine then! We will find out own way out. First off,
you can do what I did and toss a grenade at the merc at the bottom of
the pit or shoot him when you get down there. Slide down the now broken
bridge and collect ammo and medkit. Go back and move toward the new
area west of the bridge. There is a merc here with a shield so weapons
arent going to do much good on their own. Use the roll tactic where you
have Lara's weapons out and are facing the merc, run at him and roll.
Lara will slide toward him, trip him up - therefore nullifying his
shield - and allow you to paste him whilst he is on the ground.
On the other side of the tesla coil towers is another guard without a
shield.

/%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%\
Near to the guard with no shield is a brone reward sitting out in the
open. Grab it and continue on.
\%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%/
-{Bronze 5/5}-

Nearby is a tesla tower at ground level that has a spark on it.
Jump on it after the spark and follow it up without touching it. At the
top jump to the nearby level. Jump up the next level and turn around.
You will see a horizontal pole - jump to this and then to the rope a
bit further out. Turn around and face the next tesla tower and swing
jump to it. This tesla tower does not have a spark to you can rest for
a minute. OK in order to get a successful jump from tesla tower to
tesla tower, you need to have Lara's body on the closer side to the
next tesla tower and be at the very top of it. Jump to two consecutive
towers and onto the level beyond. Another scientist will give you the
cold sholder but give you a medkit. The peice of paper Lara picks up is
an interesting story: Lara reads "They funneled tesla energy into the
artefact, and there was an enourmous discharge of some sort. The KGB
shut down the operation, removed the core, sealed off the lab in
sections, and left behind those scientists who werent forcibly
removed." Alister replies "A peculiar turn of events."

/#############################################################################\
Whilst looking at the power array, if you turn around and blow the
barrel behind the locked gate, it will blow the gate away and allow
access to the silver reward beyond.
\#############################################################################/
-{Silver 3/3}-

To the left is the main power array with a grapple section so that you
may grapple the door and pull it open. Ignore it for now but remember
it for later. Proceed down the corridor following the tracks and into
the next room.

                                 [POWER CELL]

In the corridor you will find small dangling objects - they are
harmless, now, but later, keep in mind that they are shiny. This means
grappleable. Continue down the corridor and around the bend until you
get to a part where there is more gas. Above the gas is a small
platform. Use this to cross over the top of the gas. Jump from the
platform to the horizontal bar to the next platform. From here jump
onto the horizontal bar that fits snuggly across the entrance to a
brand new room. This room is the one with the 3 flashing red dots from
the map. If you look up you will see the 3 tesla globes it represented.
But more importantly you will also notice about 6 mercs in this room
guarding the area. Dispose of them only Lara knows how. Once all of
them are huggin the ground, move over to the small Lara sized square
shiny block on the track. This is the power cell - uncharged power
cell, but the power cell nonetheless. What we need to do is turn the
power on here, and move that cell back to the main power array with a
full charge. First off, move the power cell along its tracks a bit
until is closer to the broken rung ladder. Now jump onto the ladder and
climb up to the top. Jump to the platform nearby and a cinematic will
play. Amanda stole a headset when she visited Croft Manor recently. She
taunts Lara about being a scientist and not a avid believer in myths.
Jump from the platform to the horizontal pole, to the next platform.
Stop yelling at Amanda to shut the f--k up and turn right. Jump from
the platform to the rope in the middle of the room and from the rope to
the power node in the middle of the room. Go right around this and jump
from the other side to the horizontal pole beyond. Then from the pole
to the next platform. Now we can reach the other broken ladder. Jump to
this ladder and it will go down. Of course thats the wrong way - we
want to go up. Re-climb it and jump right onto the platform. Continue
down this platform and find and jump to the rope nearby. Swing from
this rope to the room. In this room you will find another dead
scientist. If you pick up the peice of paper, Lara reads "He writes
that at least a dozen of his colleagues were killed in the experiment.
The artefact converted the tesla voltage into something else... a wave
of concussive force of some kind." Alister replies "Thats familiar
enough, so why were they shut down?" and Lara adds, "... ugh... they
refused to repeat the experiment, and when the KGB tried to persuade
them otherwise, it got nasty."
Grab the medkit and look for the lever on the wall closest
to the power cell. The power nodes will come alive with electricity and
charge the power cell. Its only a third of the power needed so we need
to juice it up a bit. Go back down to the floor and move to the far
side of the power cell. Grapple it and start moving it along the
tracks. The pure power will pound the peices of junk on the track so
dont worry about them. Keep moving it on the track and the other two
power nodes will charge the power cell. One last tug and the door will
blast open and the power cell will continue down its track.

                             [POWERED GRAVITY GUN]

Go through the now open doorway and jump onto the platform as before
and then to the horizontal pole and finally to the next platform. Jump
down and go around the corner.
Follow the power cell down its tracks and around the bend and the
little things dangling from the roof will be charged, just like the
power cell itself. This means you cant touch it or go near it. But Lara
can grapple it and make them swing - thus moving them away from the
power source whilst they are not right next to the power lines on the
sides of the wall. Grapple both sides and try to time them so that they
swing roughly beside each other. Once you acheive this, you will be
able to run or roll through them within the second its not charged and
continue onwards. Grapple and pull the single next one and go around
the bend. Now perform the same task here with the next set of 4.
Grapple and pull all four and run through them when they swing away
from the piping at the bottom of their swing.
OK the power cell in the next room will have stopped as the door is
closed. Open the door by grappling the side and pulling it open -
holding it open until the power cell is all the way into the power
array. Release it and bingo, all power is up.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
WARNING: I received another email regarding yet another bug that I have
not seen nor heard of previously. Apparently some people have met with
a bug that causes the door that sparks and jars to disallow Lara
to get through anyway possible. If anyone can provide me with a video
or youtube link showing this I would be grateful. After some research
on the internet I have found a possible solution to this bug. Even
though I havent seen it myself. When you had to jump from the last
tower to the level with the power array on it, before you get to the
room with the power cell sitting idly in it, you can in fact jump to
the area where the last silver reward is - you can grab onto the top of
the cage and pull yourself up. From here, Lara can jump to a small
outcropping near to the platform that you could not get to because a
merc destroyed the bridge. Lara cannot stay on this ledge and must jump
as soon as she arrives at the very edge - and land on the metal ledge
across the pit. I have read that this is entirely possible but I am yet
to try it - I havent encountered the bug so I dont see the point. Let
me know if anyone has acheived this.
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Turn right and go through the sparking doorway, carefully timing the
opening and closing so as to not restart or stop Lara's heart with a
jolt. Once in the room, proceed to the table in the middle and a
cinematic will play with Lara spying a shield on the table in which a
map is inscribed on the back of. Lara also notices that there might
actually be another peice of the set. Grab the medkit from the dead
scientist and and go through
another timed sparking doorway.
If you pick up the peice of parper, Lara will continue, "A number of
minor relics were recovered along with the artefact. The poor fellow
couldnt find anyone to help him study it."
"I empathise, but why the lack of interest?" Alister asks.
"They were too contemporary for serious study. It seems they date from
as recently as the new millenium." Lara explains.
"I am sorry but am I missing something? How old exactly is this
artefact we're looking for?" Alister asks again.
"Older than you'd think." Lara replies.
Once on the other side of the door, you will notice that we are back at
the start of this section, just after the generator room. The gravity
gun on the left is now fully operational and awaiting Lara's feminine
touch! Jump onto the gun and turn it around to face the dangling
platform in the middle of the pit.
First off, before you go any further, to make life a little easier and
a little more fun :P grab some barrels with the gravity gun using the G
key and use primary fire to toss them at the mercs on the other side.
There are three of them so enjoy the fun while it lasts! Dont worry,
the mercs cant hurt you whilst in the gun as the gun puts out a shield
of some kind around the gun, effectively shielding you from their
gunshots. Use the G key to grab the platform and gently move it by
turning slowly to the right. Once you cant move it any further, release
it and exit from the gun.

/$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$\
Now this is very difficult to acheive but its worth it. Before you exit
the gun, look to the right above the red piping. There are four boxes
inside the wall. Pull them all out with the gravity gun. Once they are
all out, grab the hanging platform in the middle of the pit and swing
it all the way back left and then immediately back right really fast
and constantly pressing the grab button G. Just before it reaches the
end, let go of the G key and start firing the primary button at the
very top of the platform - the pulley that holds it via 4 cables. Fire
repeatedly at the pulley until it moves to a higher level on its track.
You will know you acheived it when the platform goes up higher and
further than you normally would be able to. Remember you are relying on
momentum to help you as well as the primary fire of the gravity gun -
push - on the pulley that holds the platform and not the platform
itself. Once it is all the way to the end, jump out of the gun and find
the big square metal box on a level just higher than the level Lara is
on. Grab and move this box as close to the red pipes as possible and
jump on it. Move to the left of the box and then jump onto the little
ledge you created in moving the small boxes out of the wall. Shimmy
around along and vault up to the ledge above it. On that ledge, shimmy
all the way around the corner and let go when Lara is above a platform.
From the platform the hanging platform that we moved before should be
right next to another platform at the very end of the pit. If not then
you havent moved it far enough so go back to the gravity gun and keep
at it. If it is then jump to it and again up to the end platform. From
here look at the wall that is the same side as the ledge you came from
- there should be a small tunnel with a gold reward in it beyond a
horizontal pipe. Jump to the pipe and then to the tunnel. Go into the
tunnel and grab the gold reward. Phew! Now we can continue on. Jump
back to the horizontal pole and back to the end platform. Get back on
the movable platform and finally back onto the platform with the now
open door.
\$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$/
-{Gold 1/1}-

                                [STEEL RAFTING]

OK here is a bit of fun for ya. Jump onto the platform in the tunnel
and grapple the nearby shiny thing. Give it a good pull and the
platform will begin to move towards it. But of course there is a pipe
in the road. Ungrapple and shoot it and the next one and they will
fall away and out of the way of Lara's metal raft. Grapple the next
shiny metal object and pull the raft to the bend. Once there jump onto
the next movable metal raft. Now this is a tricky part. From here,
grapple and pull the shiny metal object at the far end of the corridor
and pull it. The raft will begin moving. Let go as soon as Lara pulls
the grapple and duck and hold the duck. Lara will pass underneath a
sparking horizontal pole.
Jump from the platform to the next one and do the same here. Grapple
the shiny metal object, shoot the piping, grapple the further shiny
metal object amd this time jump over the sparking horizontal pole. Jump
down at the end of the corridor from the platform down to the ground
and turn right. There is nothing on the other tunnel but a dead end.
Once at the end of the tunnel, you will face the boss of the level.
Amanda's new pet - a young beast.

                            [AMANDA'S YOUNG BEAST]

The trick here... well there aint no trick to defeating the young beast
as you arent spose to defeat it. Lara will apologise to Amanda and
offer to work together with her. Amanda refuses and then proceeds to
unleash the young beast. Lara is shocked that a former close friend is
unleashing a seemingly unbeatable beast intent on killing her.
Now ignore the young beast and concentrate on running to the four
control panels on all four sides of the room Lara is now in. Activate
the four switches and the four tesla nodes on the roof will become
active. Run to the middle of the room to find another gravity gun
sitting there. Jump into it and move it around to face the nodes. If
the creature gives you any trouble, just use the primary fire button to
push it away. Or if you really wanna have some quality time to
yourself, grab onto the beast with the G key, hold the G key to hold it
securely and move the gun to face one of the four tesla coils at any of
the four sides of the room and use the primary fire button to toss it
into the coil. The beast will be zapped of life but just before death,
Amanda will recall it and it will be healed. This gives you about a
20-30 seconds of grace.
OK now to the task at hand. Face the gun at one of the four tesla nodes
hanging from the roof and fire the gun at them 2-3 times consecutively.
This will push the node into the line of electricity and charge the
node. As soon as the first one is active, quickly move around to the
other three, moving them and activating them as fast as possible before
the creature returns. Once the circle is complete, jump out of the gun
and grapple the sword fragment that sites right above the gravity gun
and a cinematic will play with Lara grabbing the peice and the beast
vanishing. Amanda will flee out a back door and the glass floor will
break - allowing Lara a way out. She will jump down into the open area
below and find a tunnel exit.

                            [LEVEL COMPLETE NOTES]

As Lara crawls down the tunnel, Lara will talk to Zip and co about the
discovery that Alister has made that the next port of call - to find
out more about the sword and the myth - is none other than Cornwall
(dont ask, I have no idea where Cornwall is other than the fact that
its in England somewhere) in England. Lara proceeds down the tunnel
offering up a challenge to Amanda to beat her there first.

                                [INTRODUCTION]

After a short bit of travelling, Lara finds herself and her team out the front
of an old King Arthur history shop. Lara jumps off her nice bike and visits the 
guys in the van. Shortly later, after a serious dose of breaking and entering, 
she is inside a greatly disused museum of sorts. If you cant see properly 
during this level, use your PLS or light to see. Or use my method of turning 
the gamma/contrast up to max.

                                [LEVEL BEGINS]

OK, as soon as your given control of Lara, turn her around to see a box on the
left and around the corner, a door - which is electrically locked. But of
course the power is out so you cannot open it. If you go around the corner you 
will find a tall door with a sword in a stone, you can try it but the sword 
needs power to function. Instead, turn your attention back to the box. Grab it 
and pull it out into the open. Once its in the middle of the room, look up
above the passage leading to the locked door - there is a grill up on the upper
wall section. Grapple this grill and give it a good yank to pull it away from 
the hole. Move the box directly beneath it and jump onto it. Now jump Lara up 
and grab onto the hole and wrench her through it.

/%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%\
After you are up on this new level, if you look right in front of Lara you will
notice a box that, if busted up, will reveal a shiny bronze reward. Onwards.
\%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%/
-{Bronze 1/9}-

Turn to the right and notice the next grill that you must grapple out of the
way. Crawl into this new opening and move into the next area.

                                 [ELECTRICITY]

You suddenly find yourself falling a bit into a small courtyard of sorts. Move
into the small alleyway to the left and look on the walls. The walls have
ledges for the windows that can be grabbed. Also notice the small wire that is
touching the ground, which has water on it. Take note of this little detail.
Grab onto the closest ledge and jump left to the next ledge. From this ledge,
jump up to the ledge above yours and shimmy over the fence to the other side.
As soon as Lara is over the other side of the fence drop down to the ground.
Right in front of Lara is a control box that has a switch for turning on the
power. Switch it on and have a quick look at the other side of the fence to
notice the arcs of electricity pulsing through the water on the ground.
Walk to the end of the alleyway and you will see a downpipe that Lara can climb
to get up to a vaulting hieght for the long high ledge. Jump from the downpipe,
to this ledge, jump the small gap and continue to shimmy along it. Once over
the fence, drop down one ledge to the window ledge, jump across to the next
window ledge and finally to the ground to the far right of the electricity.
Once on the other side of the electricity, go around the corner and you will
see a door that was once locked, but with electricity, it now opens. Go through
the door.

                                 [DRAWBRIDGE]

We find ourselves back in the room we were once in before we went and turn on
the power. In the room on the other side of the door you will find a small
cabinet full of King Arthur toys and a doorway to the left. Go around the box 
and turn left - there should be a sword in a stone that the guys cant help joke 
about. Give it a yank and bingo, the door opens (amid many jokes and arguments 
from the guys). Once through the door you will be in a small area with a pit, a
drawbridge and three displays of KA relics. You can press the three buttons if
you wish to have heaps of dialog and arguments from the guys, as it makes no 
difference.

/%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%\
Before you jump onto the poles, find the small hole in the wall of the room
across from the pit. Jump to it and pull Lara up and into it. Look on the
ground to find a crate with a bronze reward. Grab it and return to the main
area.
\%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%/
-{Bronze 2/9}-

Now jump from the platform, over the pit to the pole that is closest. Jump from 
that one to the next and be ready to jump backwards quickly as this one will
swing around, hit the wall and swing back. You must jump backwards off this 
pole, when it is on the wall - therefore landing on the horizontal pole 
sticking out of the wall behind Lara. Once on the third pole, turn to face the 
drawbridge and then jump to it. The drawbridge will drop with Lara's weight 
(which i imagine is miniscule) and Lara must then jump back to the previous 
pole so that she may jump onto the drawbridge before it rises up again.

                                    [BOAT]

Once on the other side of the drawbridge, you will find a new display (which
you can press the button again and here zip go nuts on his history) a boat in a 
vertical position, and another pit. To proceed further you need to shoot the 
small ring on the bow of the boat to release it. Once it has dropped to 
horizontal, jump onto it and then onto the platform beyond. Once there you will 
find another two displays for zip to argue over, and a tall door.

/%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%\
On the opposide wall to the tall door you will see a small hole in the wall at
ground level that leads to a new room. Go through the hole and you will find
another bronze reward. Go back to the previous area to continue.
\%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%/
-{Bronze 3/9}-

If you look on the ground near the tall door you will see another sword in a
stone. This time, instead of merely opening the door, it breaks the panelling
on the wall to the side of the door and reveals the pully that operates the
door. To operate the door mechinism, you must get a decent distance from it and
the door and grapple it. Then it must be pulled at a constant rate until the
door is fully open. Once it is all the way open, release the grapple and run,
dive and roll into the opening.

                                  [FORKLIFT]

/#############################################################################\
As soon as you are in the wharehouse looking room, grab the forklift and use it
to grab a box from the stack of boxes. To do this - if you have never used or
seen a forklift before, you must push the two forks into the slots at the base
of each box to ensure you can lift the box. When you have a box on the forks,
use the H key to lift the forks just enough to move the box without it falling
of or to the side. Now back up a bit and turn right. Notice high up on the wall
is a grate that can be grappled? I will come back to that in a bit. Dump the
box right beneath that grate and use the J key to lower the forks so that you
can get the box off. Once the forks are on the ground and therefore the box,
pull the forklift back and grab another box. Place this one beside the last box
and leave it. Now put the forks under the first box and lift it up just one box
higher than the one on the left. Now exit the forklift and jump up onto the box
that is on the ground. From this box jump onto the box that still sits on the
forks and grapple the grate above Lara's head. Give it a yank and it should
fall to the ground allowing for access to the small room above Lara. Jump up
and turn left to find a nice shiny new silver reward. Once up there Lara speils
on about the previous owner and stuff.
\#############################################################################/
-{Silver 1/5}-

Grab the forklift and plow on through the wall of boxes. Ignore them and there
they fall. Go down the staircase and at the bottom, look to the left to see a 
couple boxes. This is the key to progression. Use the forklift to grab each box 
and dump em somewhere anywhere. As long as they are out of your way. 

/#############################################################################\
With either a box or no box, plow on through the small sarcophages. Pull back
to reveal a silver reward. Continue on your quest.
\#############################################################################/
-{Silver 2/5}-

Now with the wall clear, plow the forklift on through the wall which breaks
apart from the crushing blow of the forklift. Now for a bit of fun. As soon as
you break through the wall you will see spike death beyond. But not this time!
Use your forklift to simply plow on through all 4 sets of spikey traps. You 
will be stopped by a portculis that blocks the passage. To pass this, place the 
forks on the ground, drive up to the gate and lift the forks. The gate will be 
forced upward. Keep going all the way until the gate opens the rest of the way
on its own. Once you get to the wall at the end, be prepared for an interactive
movie where Lara must jump off the forklift backwards and grab onto the 
platform as the forklift plunges off a high ledge to its untimely demise.

                                [CIRCULAR PIT]

Once you are looking at the pit after the forklift takes a tumble, pass through
the doorway and turn left. Here comes a tricky part. The entire area is full of
ledges and platforms that will crumble and break. 

/%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%\
Just before you go down, look directly across the pit and you will see a bronze
reward. Grab it with your grapple and continue downwars.
\%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%/
-{Bronze 4/9}-

/%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%\
Just before you make the first jump downwards, look to the opposite wall, just 
to the side of where you just came out of - there will be a bronze reward that 
you need to grapple.
\%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%/
-{Bronze 5/9}-

Go down the stairs and jump
to grab the small ledge on the left wall shimmy right and jump to the next
ledge - watch this one as it will crumble in a few seconds. From this ledge
jump to the platform beyond and quickly run around the corner and jump to the
platform beyond it before it too crumbles. Turn around the corner and you will
be faced with a horizontal pole. Jump to the pole and then to the tiny platform
beyond. Drop down to grab the ledge Lara is standing on and shimmy right. Jump
to the long ledge to the right and fast shimmy to the right. This ledge will
break very quickly so be sure to be fast.

/%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%\
When you get to the end of this ledge the last bit wont break. Instead of
dropping off, pull Lara up onto the ledge. The camera is locked to the outter
side so take Lara left until you see a bronze reward. Grab it and then go back
and drop off the ledge to the platform below.
\%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%/
-{Bronze 6/9}-

From this platform, turn the corner and jump across to the rope hanging nearby.
Turn a little to the right and swing and jump over to the small section of
stairs on the wall Lara is facing. On these steps turn right and jump across
again to the next set of stairs. From this set of stairs jump to the ledge on 
the left side of the wall and shimmy right. Jump to the next thin ledge and 
keep on shimmying around the corner. When you have shimmyed around the corner, 
drop down and turn left. Drop down another level and Lara should fall to a 
slide and stop safely. Drop down from the rubble and note the III symbol on the 
wall. I will come back to this later.

                                   [FLAMES]

Now comes a bit of a tricky part. Here is how i solved it. Go up the stairs out 
of the big crumbling room and turn the left corner. Run jump over the lava 
river and turn right. This is the tricky part. The flames prevent your passage. 
But there is a grappleable box on the other side. The trick is to only pull it
half way so it remains in the middle. Then jump to it and then from it, to the 
other side. Once you are safely on the other side, grapple the box and bring it 
with you. You will need it. Its your insta-useful box. Push it onto the first
line of fire and jump onto it. Now time the middle line so that you can jump on 
it and then to the other side in one quick motion. Once on the other side, 
grapple the box to your side and leave it there.

                                [SlICY BLADES]

Use the box to jump on onto the top of the drop door and down to the level 
below. Nearby is a lever that will lower the door and allow you to bring your
own personal box. Now the trick with these slicy blades is your box. Push it
through first and the blades will stop on the box. Allowing you free entry. But 
we want our cake and eat it too. So when you stop the blades, turn the box 
around whilst its in the blades and pull it from the blades on the other side. 
therefore you are across and so is your box. The right path leads to a dead end
that we will use later on but it also contains a box. The left path leads to a 
silver reward.

/#############################################################################\
Push a box through the left path to grab the silver reward. Continue with
story.
\#############################################################################/
-{Silver 3/5}-

The middle path is the one we want. Bring both boxes into the middle room. When
you are in this decent sized room, look to the right. There is a platform that
you can get onto. On the wall on that platform's level is a wall section with a 
II on it. Remember that for later. Push both boxes through the other side of
the middle room towards the new flames. We will need both boxes to cross that
fire. Push both boxes onto the fire one after another and jump on them. Run and 
jump to the far end to clear the fire.
At the end is a lever that will cease the fire and pull a door up at the end of 
the corridor. Its timed so you need to pass through it quickly. Before you pass
through it, push one of the boxes into the blades again at the far end of the 
corridor on the other side of the fire which is now out. Push the other box 
into the door to stop it from closing.

                                [PRESSURE PAD]

Continue down the corridor and around the bends. A portculis will close behind 
you disallowing you to go back. Right on the other side of the portculis is a 
pressure pad which will occupy you for a few minutes. To the left is a doorway
with a nice little indoor pool. Dive in and swim to the far bank and make a 
withdrawal. Once there notice the two chandeliers. One is for the story, the 
other is for a bronze reward.

/%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%\
Once on the far bank, line Lara up with the chandelier that hovers above the
solid ground and the bronze reward. Once they line up, grapple the chandelier
and pull it and let it go. The chandelier will hit the grill that protects the
bronze reward. Once the grill is gone, simply grapple the reward to grab it.
\%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%/
-{Bronze 7/9}-

With the chandelier above the water, line it up with the shiny coffin so that
Lara, the chandelier and the coffin are in a line. Grapple the chandelier and
pull it. Let it go and the chandelier will hit the grill protecting the coffin
and the coffin will be unprotected. Grapple the coffin and pull it out of its
hole. It will splash into the water. Jump into the water and climb aboard your
new boat. Look down the water and the little lights on the wall are
grappleable. Grapple and pull them to propell Lara and the coffin down towards
the pressure plate. Once at the end of the water, jump off the coffin onto
solid ground and grapple-pull it out of the water and onto the pressure pad.
Once the coffin is on the pad, the portculis down the hall will open and stay
open. Continue down this hall and around the corners. Jump into the water and
turn right to face a nice new objective.

/%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%\
Just below the silver grate you just crossed is a bronze reward. Grab it and
continue.
\%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%/
-{Bronze 8/9}-

Note the new coffin. This is your new boat. Down the other end of the water 
passageway is a lever below the water. This opens the metal grate that blocks 
the coffin. Open the lever and jump onto the coffin. Ride it until an opening 
comes up on the right. Jump through it and proceed forward in the water. Take 
the first left and then left again. This will open the grate allowing the 
coffin to take a right and following you. Jump onto the coffin and ride it 
again. It is a slow boat but it makes timing jumps real easy.

/#############################################################################\
Once the coffin reaches the grate in the middle of its path, look to the
coffins right and you will notice a nice shiny silver reward staring you in the
face just above water in a little alcove of sorts. Grapple the lights on the
wall and move up to it. Grapple pull until the coffin boat is right up next to
the reward. Jump over to it and grab it. Then just back onto the coffin and
grapple pull it back to the closed grate.
\#############################################################################/
-{Silver 4/5}-

Jump
over the closed gate and forget about the coffin. Lara will fall down a 
waterfall into the big lake that is right before... a giant castle! Swim over 
to the castle and exit the water.

                                   [CASTLE]

Now here is a bit of a tricky part. To be able to climb this castle we need to 
set it up so that we may get through in one fluid motion. First, the left light 
- grapple it and bring it parrallel to the front of the castle by going around 
the left corner and grapple-pulling it. Next the right light - grapple pull it 
so that it points away from the castle towards the lake. Now its set up. Go 
around to the left side of the castle and you will see a couple small white 
ledges. Jump on the lowest one and vault up and onto the platform above. Next, 
turn right and jump to the horizontal pole jutting out from the wall and 
finally onto the slide beyond. At the last moment jump from the slide to the 
light you moved earlier and finally jump and grapple the much higher solid
light. When you are swinging from the high light time your jump so that you
land on the right light you moved before. Once it swings around, jump onto the 
small platform beyond. Jump up on platform and then turn right to jump onto a 
small ledge. Shimmy across and jump to another ledge and finally jump right to
a golden rope. Climb this rope all the way up to the top and at the top, jump 
onto the roof. All done.

/#############################################################################\
Just before you jump down into the castle, head over to the other side of the
roof and behind a vertical spike, will be a silver reward. Grab it and go back
to the rope.
\#############################################################################/
-{Silver 5/5}-

Now jump onto the rope in the middle of the roof and
slide all the way down. Lara will have a big speech. Once that is over, look
for the sarcophages that is broken in half and approach it. Lara will do
another speech. Once that one is over, drag the section of it that is broken,
to one of the pillars that is also broken. Jump onto the peice of the
sarcophages and then onto the pillar. Turn around and look at the rope that
holds a sandbag nearby. Jump onto the rope and the bell that Lara slid down on
will rise. Now you get the idea, jump down and grapple pull the chandelier that
is nearby so that when it swings, it will hit the bell. If need be get back
onto the rope and cause the bell to rise again so that the chandelier hits the
bell. This will cause the 'shell' that Arthur is in to shatter, allowing access
to the sword fragment. After it shatters, and Lara takes the peice, the guys 
will get nabbed. Of course Lara is no position to help in anyway whatsoever. 
However, those guys arent the one in REAL mortal danger. The door to the castle 
opens and when Lara walks outsite, a GIGANTIC sea serpent rises out of the 
water and prepares to strike! But this is one meal that this beast will not 
taste.

                                 [SEA SERPENT]

Now the sea serpent isnt the hardest of hardest foes - ONCE you know how things
work. The trick to defeating this foe is timing. Never go for the hardest
route - easiest is always best. Only when you know how things trick should you
venture into hard territory.
Now to start off, a couple little basic facts, the serpent has a couple 
attacks. One is it swinging its head sideways at the whole area around Lara. 
The second is it snaping at Lara directly with its jaws. The third is the 
tricky one - it fires green stuff at you that is sometimes difficult to avoid. 
To kill the serpent, dont shoot it - it does nothing. Instead, there are 4
bells that surround it. If you shoot the bells long enough the serpent will be 
dazed by them and stare blindly at it. Once this has been acheived - and note 
it doesnt stare at it very long - put your guns away and grapple the lever
right next to the bell and a giant spiked cage will lower onto its head, 
damaging it by 1/4. You must do this 4 times to kill it. So start with the 2 
closest bells first. I suggest the right one after you lure it to the left bell
by running toward the left bell for a few seconds. Once at the right bell,
pound the crap out of it until the serpent stares blindly at it. Tap your 
manual aim key twice and then whilst Lara's animation is doing the motions of 
putting her guns away aim straight at the lever. Then grapple it - wait a 
second until its actually connected before pulling it. If you timed it right, 
it will pull down and the serpent will be hit by the cage. Repeat this with the 
second bell and cage and finally the two farther ones. Jumping, diving and
sidestepping always helps to avoid getting hit. Note - NEVER allow Lara to get 
in or fall in the water when that serpent is still alive. It will all but kill 
Lara in one stroke when it grabs her in its jaws and tosses her onto the shore.

                                   [ESCAPE]

Once the final cage lands on its head, it goes into a spasm and finally crashes
down into the water... later to rise on the left side of the pool. Now jump
into the pool and swim to it. Take out your knife and proceed to chop off its
head for a nice souvineir... i mean jump out onto the platform right next to
the dead serpent and then jump onto it and walk along its length until you get
to a ledge just low enough for Lara to jump onto and climb up and onto a
platform. Once on this platform go down the passage in front of Lara.
Now down this passage is a small gap that you need to grapple jump across. Once 
on the other side, there is another gap that has a horizontal bar across it. 
Jump to the bar and onto the rest of the slide slope. Down the slope a bit 
there is a small gap that you need to jump across. Once on the other side of 
this small gap, supprise supprise, another serpent appears! This time whilst in 
an interactive movie. For me i have movement keys WASD so my key combination 
was W A D. It may differ for you.

                               [ONE LAST THING]

Once the serpent lowers its head and leaves, Lara will put her guns away and 
give you back control.

/%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%\
As soon as you turn around, you will see a bronze reward. As soon as you climb
the gate, jump on the rope and let go so you fall down the other side. Grab the
rewards and repeat it again in the other direction.
\%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%/
-{Bronze 9/9}-

First shoot the ring holding the rope down. Next climb the gate from the 2
shields on either side and shimmy into the middle and jump up to grab the rope.
Now swing up and jump up to the platform above Lara. On this platform is a
Lever. Pull the lever and then slide down the slope through the doorway. Once
you have gone down the slope, you will be on a small platform above the ground
where the slicy blades were. Jump down and turn to the left to face 2 mercs.
Now make your way back to the room with slicy blades on either end and higher
platforms on either side.

/$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$\
These two higher platforms each hold a I and a II that we want. Remember the
first vertical stone door that was straight after the two lines of fire that we
used a box to cross? Take a box into the room on the other side of that door to
the fire lines room and take it to both sides. Use the box to cover the blades
and one Lara is in, pull the box out of the blades and next to the higher
platform. Jump on the platform from the box and find the II on one side of the
room network and the I on the other. You cant get to the I from the middle room
as the ledge is broken. You need to get to it from the same room as you got a
silver reward from. Once you find them, grab them and push them. THEY MUST BE
DONE IN ORDER or else they wont work. I and then II. Now if they work they will
turn black and not move back out to where they were. This will continue shortly
after.
\$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$/
-{Gold 1/1}- Part 1

When you get to the lines of fire, you will note that there is only 2 lines of
fire which are permanently on, they others never light up with fire. Therefore
simply to a double running jump on both of them to pass them. You will need to 
waste 2 mercs here before you continue. Turn the corner and jump the lava river 
so that you can continue down the corridor. Once you come to the big vertical 
crumbling room, there will be a tougher merc with a grenade launcher. Waste him
and look for the III.

/$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$\
Continued. When you find the III, grab it and push until it goes all the way
in. This one will not turn black as its the trigger. Once its fully in, let go
and turn around and you will notice a small patch of wall that had a mural on
it, is now open as a vertical door. This will allow access to the GOLD reward!
Finally!
\$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$/
-{Gold 1/1}- Part 2

Once you have what you came for, jump onto the small set of stairs and jump to
the little carriage and press the button on the panel in the middle. This will
cause it to ascend. On the way up you will have to waste another merc at the
top. Once he is done, grapple pull a coffin so that the little basket your in
is pulled toward it.

Once your close enough, jump to the platform and continue down the passage. Be
wary as you will be set upon by no less than three mercs and 2 dogs. So run and
gun your way down the passage. At the end of the passage is two mercs with riot
shields. Just run up to them and press the F key to roll or... slide at their
feet knocking them on their ass so that you can whack em a new one with your
guns. Easy. Go up the next passage and waste the couple mercs at the pretend
tomb. As soon as the last guard falls, the end cinematic will play showing the
guys under guard, the guard getting worried about his mates and opening the
door. BOOM! BAM! Thank ya mam. He goes flying into the side of the van.

                            [LEVEL COMPLETE NOTES]

 Lara and co are back in croft manor talking about the complete sword and the
fact that its still in pieces. But its not quite complete yet, now is it. Its
missing a certain pendant... a pendant her mother was wearing when Lara and her
mother's plane went down over Nepal. Time to rug up again cos were headed for
the snow!

                                [INTRODUCTION]

After a little bit of a trek from england to the snowy alps of Nepal, Lara
finds herself on a small platform on the side of a mountain. The guys note that
they cant see anything due to the density of the snow but Lara wont easily
forget this place.

                                [LEVEL BEGINS]

We find a nice little platform to start from. First off, turn around and jump
onto the ledge on the wall behind Lara. Quickly move left as it soon breaks off
and jump up onto the platform above it. From here jump up to a higher platform
and go down the slope on the other side ready to jump at the bottom of the
slide to next platform. From this platform, continue forwards and jump to the 
small ledge beyond and drop down a level. Now shimmy to the left and around the 
curner. Jump backwards onto the small outcropping that is about to break. 
Quickly shimmy left onto the more stable portion and vault up onto the
platform. Jump up another platform and turn left to find a half broken bridge.
From this platform take a running jump onto the bridge and do a running jump at 
the end onto a horizontal pole which will break with Lara's puny weight. On the 
first swing jump to the ledge below a platform. Vault up onto the platform and 
turn around. 

/%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%\
On the opposite side of this platform, on two levels down is a bronze reward,
drop down to grab the top of the platform, then drop down twice. Lara will be
staring directly at the bronze reward. Grab it and climb back up to the
platform to continue.
\%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%/
-{Bronze 1/9}-

From here its hard to see where to go. The way to continue is
actually the small vertical pillars of ice hanging down from the ceiling. There 
are three of them. But you need to run-jump-grapple-jump onto the first one, 
look to the next one and jump to it. Continue doing this until you see a ledge
in the ice beyond. You must do this quickly as the ice pillars are fragile and
will break soon after Lara gets on them. Shimmy around the corner and jump up a 
ledge to one above it. Finally shimmy around this corner to the right and then 
vault up to the platform above.

/#############################################################################\
If you drop back down to the ledge you got to this platform from, and shimmy
further right, you will see another cave platform above Lara. Jump up and into
this cave to find and grab a silver reward.
\#############################################################################/
-{Silver 1/6}-

On this platform you will find a door made of ice to the right. Shoot it to go 
through it. Go around the bends of this cave and you will end up on the other
side of the mountain.

                                    [PLANE]

Once you have the plane in sight, turn right and you will see a platform
beyond. Jump to it and vault up onto it. Beyond is a slide leading to a gap 
that seperates it from a slide that goes to the left. Slide down the first 
slide and jump to the next. At the end of the second slide jump to a platform
that is beyond a small gap. Turn left and you will see another platform out in
the open. Beware that this platform is fragile and will collapse, so run and 
jump to it, keep running and jump to the horizontal pole beyond. Take one swing 
and jump-grapple-jump to the tunnel beyond. 

/#############################################################################\
Once you reach this tunnel, turn around and look to the right of the horizontal 
pole. Its hard to notice but you see it as you swing - a silver reward is in a 
small cave in the wall. To get to it, you need to shoot the wall Just shoot the 
wall opposite the horizontal pole and eventually you will shoot it out. Run and 
jump to it and collect the silver reward. Then run jump back to the tunnel and 
continue on.
\#############################################################################/
-{Silver 2/6}-

Proceed down the tunnel and around the bend. Once again we are looking at the
wrecked plane. Look to the right and notice a wing in a vertical angle and that 
it has the paneling removed, allowing access to the inner workings of the wing.
It also provides Lara with hand holds. Jump to the wing and drop down one 
level. Jump backwards to a ledge behind Lara and drop down two levels to the 
ground. 

/%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%\
Just behind the base of the wing there is a bronze reward that is a little hard
to see. Grapple it and continue onwards.
\%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%/
-{Bronze 2/9}-

Go down the path but dont go down to the level the plane is on. Rather
stay up there and look for the cat that is hovering below Lara. When it comes 
into sight waste it with her guns.

                                   [BALANCE]

Now time for an interactive movie sequence. First off, jump down to the level
the plane is on and look for the grappleable plane engine. Carefully jump into 
the plane but dont go too far yet. From inside the plane, grapple the engine
and bring it into the fuselage of the plane to give the plane a more stable
balance.

/#############################################################################\
Before you go any further into the plane, take a short trip to the right side
of the plane look for a platform a little higher than the plane. Jump up onto
it and grapple-pull the wreckage towards Lara. It will fall down a deep hole
out of Lara's way. Now jump to the platform beyond and go around the corner.
There is a nice silver reward there waiting for Lara to snare. Jump back across
the gap and down to the plane level.
\#############################################################################/
-{Silver 3/6}-

Now go further into the plane and prepare for the interactive movie sequence. 
The plane will being to lose balance towards the abyss beyond. Lara will need 
to grab the pendant before it disappears beyond the windscreen. She will need
to make a b-line for the aft section of the wreck, duck a flying chair and
finally dive to the snow covered mountain. The keys i used were D for grabbing 
the pendant, W for making our way to the aft section of the plane, S for
ducking the chair and A for diving back to the mountain. It may differ for your 
version.

                                  [NEW QUEST]

Once Lara is back on solid ground again its time to go after that temple in the 
distance that has captured her attention. First off, where the plane was 
sitting before, jump from there to the slide down below and from the bottom of 
that slide, jump to a horizontal pole and swing to the next slide. From this 
slide jump to the next slide, and another after a small gap. At the base of 
this one you will need to shoot a door so that Lara may pass beyond it. At the 
very lip of the door is the end of the slide and Lara will need to jump again 
to another slide. This slide doesnt last long either as another jump is 
required to get to a horizontal pole and finally from there to platform below. 
The horizontal pole is fragile and will eventually break so dont tally.

/%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%\
As soon as you reach the platform beyond the horizontal pole, turn around and 
look back the way you came. You will see a bronze reward. Grapple it and pull 
to retrieve it. Carry on.
\%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%/
-{Bronze 3/9}-

Go around the corner on this level and you will see a platform just above the
one Lara is on. Jump and grab it and pull her up onto it. Turn right to jump to 
the horizontal pole and then to a ledge beyond. Shimmy left and jump the small 
gap in the wall but be quick as the one you jump to is fragile. Quickly shimmy 
left and drop down a level to the ledge below it. From this ledge, if you look 
behind Lara there will be a horizontal pole sticking out of the wall ready to 
swing onto. From this pole jump to the vertical fragile pillars of ice hanging 
from the ceiling and then to the platform to the right. NOTE that this platform 
is a moving one and that each edge will cause it to fall away if Lara moves to 
it. So keep Lara as close to the centre as possible. If it falls one way, move 
Lara to the opposite edge on the platform.

/%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%\
If you look at the ice pillars, one on the right is right next to a hole in the
wall. In the hole is a bronze reward. Grapple it to collect it and move on.
\%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%/
-{Bronze 4/9}-

                                   [LEDGING]

From the moving platform jump to the ledge beyond and shimmy to the right and
up onto the platform/bridge. Now from here, if you look to the left you should
see a ledge just above the platform that Lara is standing on now. Jump onto
this and shimmy right until it ends, from here jump to the opposite wall onto
the ledge there.

/$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$\
Just before you continue, drop down a level and look to Lara's right. You
should be able to see a thin ledge on the opposite wall to Lara's right. Shimmy
right and jump to the ledge beyond. From this ledge, drop down 2 ledges and
shimmy left so that Lara can vault onto the platform there to collect the ??
reward. To continue, drop down so that Lara is again hanging from the platform
and shimmy right. Jump up 2 levels and shimmy right again. Keep going right
until she cannot go any further. When she cant go any futher right, jump up one
ledge and shimmy right so that Lara may jump back onto the platform/bridge.
Continue on from here.
\$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$/
-{Gold 1/1}-

From here, the camera doesnt show it very well but there is a vertical pole
directly behind Lara. If you pull back and jump she will jump backwards onto
the pole and be able to climb it. From this pole she needs to climb it until it
stops and jump right to a ledge that is also hard to see. From this ledge,
shimmy right until it ends and jump to a ledge on the wall to the right, but
beware as this ledge will crumble. Once on this ledge shimmy right as fast as
possible and jump up and onto the platform above. Go down this passageway and
you will end up in an opening of sorts. This opening has that helo that we saw
before dropping off some mercs. Waste em as only Lara knows how continue on.
There are a total of 4 standard mercs and one mini boss merc with a nade
launcher. 3 mercs on the ground dropped off by the helo, one merc on the
structure to Lara's right and the mini boss merc on a platform above Lara's in
the distance. They shouldnt be a problem with all the explosive containers
lying next to them.

/#############################################################################\
Once the mercs are dealt with, the little island in the middle of the area is
out of place. Jump onto it and look back the way Lara came. Just up and to the
right on the same level as Lara now is, is a ledge below a different coloured
ice wall. Behind this ice wall is a reward that you want. Shoot this wall and
jump to the ledge and climb up. Grab the silver reward and jump back down.
\#############################################################################/
-{Silver 5/6}-

/%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%\
Just before you go any further, on the ground level, around the corner to the
far left back is a bronze reward. Just look on the ground level near the water.
\%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%/
-{Bronze 5/9}-

Jump onto the furtherest little island platform and from this to the platform
next to the iced river. From here, jump to the level that is at the same height
as Lara's and look for the grapple jump shiny object.

/%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%\
Right out in the middle of the area is a bronze reward that you just cant miss.
Pick it up and continue.
\%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%/
-{Bronze 6/9}-

Grapple jump onto the shiny lamp to land on the rock structure beyond. Once
there look for the flying fox to jump onto. It is on a level up from Lara, so
she will need to jump up one level to use it. Use it to traverse the distance
from this structure to a platform on the other side of the area. Once on this
platform go down the tunnel that is a slide and from there, into the cave.

/%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%\
In the cave here, just before the icebergs, will be a small side passage to the
left that contains a bronze reward. Nab it and go back into the main cave to
continue.
\%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%/
-{Bronze 7/9}-

Lara will end up in a big tunnel with small icebergs that look perfect for
boating.

                                  [ICEBERGS]

From this cave jump to the closest iceberg trying to be careful not to fall
into the water as this will deplete Lara's health at a rapid rate. Jump from
the first iceberg to the next and you will find that the third is far out of
reach. However, there is an iceberg that is still attached to the ceiling. It
only requires a single round from Lara's guns to fall. Once you oblige it, it
will fall and float, allowing Lara to jump to it and the final berg. Once on
this berg, jump to the solid rock platform to the left and down the other side
of it. A stream of bergs awaits. Now the objective is to go upstream as the
icebergs are going downstream, left to right. Wait until the icebergs are in
jumping range and jump to the closest one. Hop to the next closest one with
every attempt trying to go upstream.

/#############################################################################\
When looking upstream, there is a small cave to the left side of the exit to
this section that contains a silver reward. It requires a few hops to get to it
but its by no means hard. Once you collect it, hop back onto the icebergs to
continue onwards.
\#############################################################################/
-{Silver 6/6}-

To make sure you dont get too far downstream, there is a small platform on the
furtherest bank half way to the exit tunnel just in case. Dont be afraid to use
it to wait for more icebergs to float closer. Once you make it to the exit
tunnel on the right of the stream, pass down into it. At the end of this little
cave is a staircase to the left side. Ascend it and be prepared to fight.

                                   [SCALES]

Just before you reach the top of the stairs, beward of a white cat at the
platform just beyond the stairs. I normally toss a nade up there with little to
no cook time. This softens the beast up considerably and allows to a good easy
pasting once you move up to it.

/#############################################################################\
First off, a silver reward. Go down the right side stairs, and at the bottom of
the stairs, go to the far back corner. There should be something that is
similar to a picture frame on the back wall that has a few cracks in it. Shoot
it out and jump up there to grab the silver reward. Go all the way back up to
the top to continue.
\#############################################################################/
-{Silver 6/6}-

Now from the top platform, look for the broken bit of wall - this is where you
need to jump from. Take a run up and jump grapple a light in the centre of the
room and swing grapple 2 more to reach the far end of the room. Try to land on
the higher platform above the cat so as to make it a bit easier to waste. Once
on this little platform grab the guns and waste the cat. After its suckin dirt,
we need to get through the golden doors below Lara. To do this, the gold box
needs to be on the golden pressure pad on the top of the higher platform. To
acheive this, we need to do a bit of moving with the different boxes. First put
the big brown box on the right scales. Now jump onto the left scales. Jump on
the spot a couple times to bring it down. Now grapple the golden box and pull
it onto the left scales. The left scales will stay down and the right scales
with the big brown box will stay up. Get onto the middle platform and grapple
pull the big brown box onto the middle platform. Jump back on the right scales
and jump on the spot a couple times to make the right scales go all the way
down. Grapple the tiny brown box and pull it onto the right scales. This scales
will go back up when Lara gets off. Grapple the big brown box from a position
on the right scales and pull it onto the scales. This scales should now go
down all the way. Jump on the middle platform and grapple pull the golden box
onto the middle platform. Push it onto the golden pressure pad to open the
door. Hey presto!

                                    [SWORD]

Since the doors are now open Lara can now enter the structure through the doors
and begin to reassemble the peices to reforge the blade.

/%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%\
Before you go into the doorway, go up the left stairs beside the platform in
the middle and walk all the way back to the other end of the room. There is a
bronze reward sitting there. Go back to the middle platform with the scales
when done.
\%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%/
-{Bronze 8/9}-

/%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%\
After you get the previous bronze reward, do the exact same thing for the other
side, this time the bronze reward is only half way down the other end and
therefore dont have to walk as far.
\%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%/
-{Bronze 9/9}-

Now go through the door and note that the door closes behind Lara. It cant be
helped. Go down the passage way and a cinematic will play showing Lara putting
the pieces back together and reforging the blade. She places it into the altar
and the altar crumbles. Give the sword a few swipes to get the feeling of it.
Now the door the closed behind Lara cannot be opened, so we need a new exit. On
the same level as Lara is currently on, below the door she just went through is
another door. This is closed too, but this one wont stand up the power of
excalibur, so give this door a good old swipe to demolish it.

                                   [ESCAPE]

As soon as the door is gone, you have very little time to escape. The pillars
you saw before is your only escape. To start off, on the left side is a small
pillar with a tiny platform on it, jump to it and the next one along that side 
of the room. Lara will grab it with her hands and you will have to pull her up
fast. Jump to the next one on Lara's right and the one after that in a line. 
Finally jump to the solid platform beyond, which is just below where you 
entered the room. As soon as you are there, a cinematic will play.

                            [LEVEL COMPLETE NOTES]

Once Lara pulls herself up off the ledge and onto the platform, she then vows 
to revisit Bolivia and settle this little dispute of her's once and for all. 
With excalibur in tow, they dont stand a chance... or do they?

TIME TRIAL 50:00

                                [INTRODUCTION]

OK this is the final chapter and its a doosy. First Lara makes it quite obvious 
nobody will stop her doing what she came here to do. Amanda and Rutland think 
otherwise. Immediately they send their guards at Lara. But this time, its 
different. This time Lara has the almost unstoppable power of the excalibur.

                                
			   	[LEVEL BEGINS]

Right off the bat, as soon as you have control, get the sword out and start 
wiping the floor with the mercs. Its a peice of p--- as one swipe will kill 
any one of em. Trouble is there are a LOT of them. So my advice is to kill them 
as fast as possible  but always make sure you get max health and health packs 
before you finish off the last guy. You can jump in any of the fixed machine 
gun emplacements if you wish but Lara's a dead target for nades. Keep moving 
about as much as possible whilst keeping those things in mind.

                             [FULL GROWN MONSTER]

This full grown monster is a pain. Not only does it take more punishment from 
you, but it gives more this time. I have been told using the game setting 
'advanced toggle' for combat mode helps, but i find that it makes it very 
difficult. I cant figure out the point that it does but for me it makes the 
camera go all over the place and NOT follow the monster but weird angles. Sure 
the target is locked on the monster but Lara does not always fire at the 
monster even with this on. 80% of the time she fires at it but i cant even see 
where she fired the green light stuff, where the monster is or even where Lara 
is in relation to the damn abyss below the island. I have killed the monster in 
both modes so its really up to you and your personal preference.
OK on to the tactics for defeating the monster. First off, it only really has 
one attack. It does the exact same kind of attack that your sword does but 
slower and red. To avoid these simple jump out of the way to either side. But 
one thing you must remember - dont stop firing the sword. Even when your not 
hitting it, keep firing it. Keep moving about to avoid its bolts but not too 
far. When its health gets low start moving closer to it so that you can make a 
mad dash to it to stab it with the E key when it goes down. You must stab it 4 
times to waste it. If you dont stab it in time, it will rise up and continue 
fighting. You must hit it with the E key when its down, 4 times. When your 
health gets below half, use a health pack as a solid hit with less than half 
your health will kill Lara. After Lara finally jabs it for the fourth time the 
monster will rise up into the air and vanish. Defeated.

                                [GAME COMPLETE]

After the monster dies, and Amanda drops to the ground, Lara grabs Amanda's 
little trinket that activated the monster and examines it. After a time, she 
pulls out the book she drew in when she was 8 and proceeds to replicate the 
situation that happened all those many years ago. She places the sword into the
stone and arranges the obelisks. The floor begins to glow and she finally
decides to activate it. Lara taps the sword, activating it, and she see's her
mother and recognises the situation.

Lady Croft: No, get back! What is it?
Young Lara: There's something in the light.
Lady Croft: Stay here. What... who are you?
Lara: Mother? Its Lara, your daughter.
Lady Croft: What? What about my daughter?
...
Lara: DONT TOUCH THE SWORD!
Lady Croft: She meant no harm!
...
Amanda: Take out the sword!
Lara: What?! NO!
Lara: Mother... mother listen to me!
Amanda: It will exploded unless you pull out the sword!
Lady Croft: OK!
Lara: NOOOO!
...
BOOM!
...
SHINK!
Amanda: You idiot! You ruined everything!
Lara: All these years i blamed myself, and it was you! You killed her!
Amanda: Killed her? She's not dead! She went where i was supposed to go, where
you could have gone!
Lara: Make sense right this second or i swear i will execute you where you
stand!
Amanda: I told you to pull out the sword, i told you!
Lara: BANG! ... WHERE ... BANG! ... IS ... BANG! ... MY ... BANG! ...
MOTHER!
Amanda: Avalon! Its not a myth! Dont you get it? You'll never understand... i'm 
wasting my breath!
...
...
Bash!
...
Lara: From this moment, your every breath is a gift from me...
...
Zip: Lara?
Lara: For years my father believed my mother was alive. It was what kept him
going. I pitied him for thinking that way. Alistar, go to the british museum 
immediately, ring me when you get there. Dress in layers, you'll be there a 
while.
Alistar: Right, im off.
Lara: Zip, call Professor Edington at the Cavandish Laboritory, arrange
a meeting.
Zip: Will do. What should i tell him.
Lara: Tell him... tell him my father was right about everything, and there may
be time to do something about it.

Congratulations on finishing the game. I hope you have enjoyed it at least half
as much as i have. I must say that the ending cinematic was very well written.
That is the reason i wrote it all out. This game is one of the very few
absolute favourites of mine. Sure it has its flaws but the story, the gameplay,
the visuals, sounds and voice acting are all flawless.

But dont think the adventure ends there! The Croft Manor awaits. And dont
forget the time trials! If you wish to know, i have played this game from
beginning to end at LEAST 10 times, i love it that much.

FAQ #1------------------------------------------------------------------------@

"Hey, I'm stuck early on in Legend. Really early on.

I'm 1% in, and I'm in the room with the three boxes, the mechanisms
and the balanced "ledge" thingy. I've gotten the three boxes onto their
respective blocks (by balancing a box on one edge of the ledge and
jumping onto the other, sending the box flying), and the door has
opened. But how do I get up to the door?"
"Anna Love"

ANSWER:
Check my walkthrough for details on how to reach the door. Its the entire left 
side of the room.

FAQ #2------------------------------------------------------------------------@

"I'm stuck again though. I'm in Peru still and I've reached a statue,
with a ball on the ground and a ball up top. There are three spots on
the ground where the balls need to go. I've climbed up and recovered
the second ball, but, having tried balls on different spots at any one
time, I can't seem to find the other ball. I'm assuming it's opposite
the location of the second ball, though in the cutscene it didn't show
any signs of being up there. What to do?"
"Anna Love"

ANSWER:
Go back toward the chasm. When facing the chasm, look to your right.
Then look up at the top of the pillar. Whack the ball at the top with
your hook thingy then give it a good old yank.

FAQ #3------------------------------------------------------------------------@

"I'm further in the game and I hope my emails aren't annoying you.
I'm in Kazakhstan and I've met Amanda and just turned on the power,
sent it down the track, blown the door and rounded the corner to see
the generator-thingy-on-wheels disappear and meet a path of "balls"
conducting electricity. What to do?"
"Anna Love"

ANSWER:
Check my walkthrough for the method of correctly powering up the machine.

FAQ #4------------------------------------------------------------------------@

"I'm stuck on Amanda's boss now. I've switched the orbs on, and I
realize you can create a shield, and the sword hangs over me, but what
to do?"
"Anna Love"

ANSWER:
Check my walkthrough for defeating the boss or visit the video link provided 
below the walkthrough. Basically you need to press all 4 switches on each of 
the four walls of the room and then use the machine's push ability to push the 
four blue balls that hang from the roof to form an electrical circuit. After 
that is accomplished, you are then able to grapple the sword fragment and 
obtain it.

FAQ #5------------------------------------------------------------------------@

"Hi,
My name is Blaine and I am competely stuck on the SPINNING SPIKES
PUZZLE, as soon as I get in the room a cut scene goes off and I cant
press or do anything...am I suppose to press certain buttons in
certain orders to do this double jump grapple.

Be great to hear back

Regards Blaine"
"Blaine Lewry"

ANSWER:
I am guessing you are talking about an interactive movie sequence. If you are 
then i would imagine that there are either blue arrows showing the direction 
keys that need to be pressed or buttons in a certain colour showing you what 
keys need to be pressed. If you press the wrong button when the time comes a 
small red cross will appear over the button icon showing you that you have 
pressed the wrong button and Lara will die.

FAQ #6------------------------------------------------------------------------@

"its f--kin w--k, why  present a not even half complete guide you d--k
head."
"chris kendall" mintflow@hotmail.co.uk

ANSWER:
Because it takes time to write 20,000 words. Thanks for your support.
(No grammar or spelling corrections were made to preserve the email -
except for the -'s)

FAQ #7------------------------------------------------------------------------@

"Hey mouseno4,
I just bought [the new] Tomb Raider game (PS2) yesterday and I got
stuck in [Lara] Croftís Manner (Laraís training [room]).  I had read
[a] cheat book, [and it] told me go to [the] computer [in the] glass
room, [and] on the right corner of the room [is] a laptop on the floor
and [I should] activate it. I tried many ways and many buttons on the
controller, but [I] cannot do it. I believe you [might] have a better
idea to help me out. Thank you.

Thuha~"
"Thuha Pham"

ANSWER:
To get the grapple, yes you do interact with the laptop on the ground to
zip's right. This opens a vault on the far wall to the back left corner of the 
room. Inside is the grapple.

FAQ #8------------------------------------------------------------------------@

"Hi,
When your in Lara's study, the room where Alistair is sitting at the
desk, to the left of the door your binoculars say there are two
mechanisms behind the bookshelves but I cant figure out how to open
them. Ive noticed four empty book spaces on the shelves and there are
four outstanding books in the study. I wondered if you need to place
them on the shelf but Lara is refusing to pull them out. I wonder if
you could help me out?

No answer as yet.

FAQ #9------------------------------------------------------------------------@

"Hi, I can't kill Amandas big spider (barlog)! Please help me.
Thanks"
"mehdi fattahi"

ANSWER:
Thats simple. You cant. At least not until the end of the game. First
fend it off with the big ass gun in the middle of the room. Then
interact with the 4 buttons at all four sides of the room whilst the
beast recharges. To make this easier, grab the monster with the gun,
and push it into the tesla towers to make it have to go away and
recharge. When all 4 of the switches on all four sides of the room have
been activated, push the four big balls hanging from the roof around
the big gun, with the big gun. You must do this quickly so that it
forms a circle around the big gun. Once this has been done it will form
an electric circuit circling the big gun. Now grapple the sword
fragment.

I'm having a little problem with Tomb Raider Legend. If you've done
The Croft Manor already, maybe you can help me. I already have the one

FAQ #13-----------------------------------------------------------------------@

"Hi, I need a little help with something that should be very simple. I
am in the room with the big monitor in Japan, i'm meant to shoot the
clasps that hold it but i've been trying for hours and I can't! The
trouble is that I can't aim high enough and that its not very accurate
anyway. (playstation  version). Is there a particular place in the room
that i'm meant to shoot from? Is there a way to aim higher other than
using the R3 on the controller? Please help, I really am stuck and i
would love to get to the next part! I don't mind using a cheat on this
particular bit if that is what you suggest!
Thanks"
"Deborah Chinn"

ANSWER:
You must go into manual aim mode to shoot the clasps. You will know you have 
gone into manual aim mode if you see a circle with a dot in front of Lara, and 
your vision is just behind Lara's right shoulder.

"I have no problem with the grapple or anything like that. I just can't
shoot the supports/clasps. I've tried what you suggested a million
times but it doesn't work. She still doesn't aim high enough. Myabe
theres a problem with the controller? I don't know. I usually only play
games on my computer but since my mother and sister also wanted to play
this game, I bought it for the Playstation 2 that we own. Anyway,
thanks for trying and if you have any other suggestions, please tell
me!
Thanks!"
"Deborah Chinn"

ANSWER:
Unfortunately i cant suggest anything more, other than try to get another 
weapon of the fallen enemeies.

"Thankyou Mouse, I figured it out- I was supposed to press the R3
button down and that gives me a little target like a reticule and then
shoot. How simple was that? I don't know why it didn't occur to me
before!xxx"

FAQ #18-----------------------------------------------------------------------@

"Hey, great guide..thanks! Am at the end of the intro standing at the
door to the room with the blades. I go in, see the blue arrow, but
always get killed. How do I get around this? Also, is there a way to
skip and go right to the game? Thx, Joe"
"Syd Stimpson"

ANSWER:
Up arrow is W Down arrow is S Left arrow is A right arrow is D. Use 
those AS SOON as you see them.

"well I am using them, but I keep getting chopped up with the blades.
do I half to go past them to get into the game! Joe"
"Syd Stimpson"

ANSWER:
The only way that is happening is if your too slow to press the buttons 
or you are pressing the wrong buttons. Or you have altered the movement 
keys from the default.

"well I am just losing my mind! Ok, I enter the room, the cut scene 
plays and Lara is taken over . As soon as she is released I srart 
running. I see the blue arrow pointing towards the next opening. I 
press the W key right away and it immediately tuns into a red x across 
it and she gets chopped up. I've tried both sides of the room and the 
same thing. I have not changed the default settings. Joe  R u getting 
tired of me asking you this?"
"Syd Stimpson"

ANSWER:
No because I know your problem. The red X over the blue arrow means you
are pressing the wrong key. The keys are the NORMAL movement keys.
Press the movement key that corresponds to the direction the arrow
points and it should 'ping' saying that its correct and Lara should
roll, and give you an up arrow and after pressing the forwards key,
Lara will jump and roll out of the room.

FAQ #31-----------------------------------------------------------------------@

"Dear Sir
I've got the PC version and I am in the pit where the stones fall around Lara 
and she has to grab onto the falling statue then jump to the ledge. I read the 
game faq you have at gamefaqs.com but I'm afraid I'm still having trouble. The 
problem I'm having is that I can't get her to grab the ledge after she lands on
the stone that breaks off. I do a jump and land on the stone and it breaks and 
she grabs with one hand but she can't seem to get it with the other hand. I'm
at a total loss at what to do. I've waited for the arrows but still I wind up 
dying. Am I landing where I'm not supposed to or what? I can't seem to get her 
to land anywhere else and no matter what I try she winds up dying. If you can 
help at all I'd appreciate it.
Sincerely,"
"Mrs. Monia A.[surname withheld]"

ANSWER:
There are only 4 buttons that can be pressed to give either a wrong answer -
blue arrow with red cross over it - or a right answer - blue arrow with a ping.
The way I see it - either the game creates a random button for the current
instance of the level so that you cant simply memorise which button combination
for pit A etc. or it is in fact the exact same each time. Given that only four 
buttons could have the right answer - you have a one in four chance of getting
the correct button for a single section of the interactive movie. Normally, its
Left to jump onto the statue, Forward to jump onto the next bit of the pit, and
Right to use both hands on the ledge. So if you were to tap the corresponding 
key repeatedly when the arrow icon is expected to appear, and not waiting for 
it to show up, you have a 1 in 4 chance of getting it right. So my suggestion 
if you cant seem to get it right, is to tap the key you beleive is the right 
key repeatedly when you expect the blue/white arrow icon to appear and not
simply waiting for it.
Oh and you cant do anything other than push those four buttons whilst in the 
interactive movie so, no you cant  determine where Lara will land since its 
completely scripted as a success/fail situation.
Hope this helps.

FAQ #33-----------------------------------------------------------------------@

"Hi, I have a question for you.  I have recently purchased this game  and have
gone as far as Japan but I am stuck on the ramp to jump with the  grapple.  I
cannot seem to hook on and sometimes I get the read X.   When do I grapple?
I tried with the shine, with the arrow but nothing either way.  What am  I
doing wrong.  I have done so many of the  Lara Croft games, I enjoy them very
much, but this one I am really stuck and  there is no way to skip to the next
scene/level.  I am 64 years of age and  love to play these type of games, hate
to get stuck.  I need your help on  this if you can. Thank you much.  PJ"
"PJ"

ANSWER:
I need more information about where you are and what you are doing. I will take
a guess at where you are and that guess would be the scene where you must ride 
the bike off the ramp and onto the small platform beyond. This is an 
interactive movie sequence that requires a direction key to be pressed. That is
the way it is with the pc version - however i am not able to try this on a 
console version as i do not own a console. The best way to pass this is to 
simply watch lara die the first time and be vigilant for a blue silver 
direction arrow. Imagine you are looking from the top down on lara - now 
imagine the direction keys that would move lara in the desired direction. If 
the first silver arrow you see is an arrow pointing to the left side of the 
screen, then you need to press the corresponding key that would cause lara to 
move to the left in normal movement mode. The same applies for the 3 other 
directions. If all else fails, pick a direction key and repeatedly tap it 
whilst in the interactive movie as you have a 1 in 4 chance of getting it 
right. If you dont get it right, replay it and try another until you get it 
right.

"Sorry, I thought I gave you enough information  I have the PC version and I am 
as I said on the ramp trying to get across to the building roof on to the 
platform.  I will try what you said about the direction keys if I understand it
correctly.  I thought just the Q grapple key was involved.  I will watch and 
let you know how I make out if I do.  Thanks every so much for help and for 
answering my email.    PJ"
"PJ"

"Thank you so much for the info.  I would have never thought about using the
directional key.  I kept using the Q as indicated in the book for grappling.
I tried it and got her across on the first try by using left arrow.  Now
however I keep blowing her up, I cannot get her past the gas containers.  Any
hint on that?  Again, thank you, thank you and thank you.  Oh, and thanks for
not laughing at me for getting stuck and because of my age too.    PJ"
"pj"

ANSWER:
As far as i know there are three stages per interactive movie sequence. In 
other words, you must do the same thing three times the way you did the first 
bit to get lara across the gap.
Note this for all future interactive movie sequences.

FAQ #33-----------------------------------------------------------------------@

"I'm sure you've already gotten this before but first let me start by saying I
love your walkthrough a LOT....without it I wouldn't have flown through this
game so quickly.  I however did spend a very frustrating 30 minutes trying to
get through level 4 by the big waterfall where you say to drop the barrels and
then I could never catch those stupid freaking ropes so I died about a dozen
times before I realized I was blowing up the bridge I needed to cross.  Other
than that thanks so far :P  Please hop on Full Auto one night so that I may
blow you up repeatedly as payback for that...lol."
"JaXboxChick77/Marcia" "I drink, therefore I am."

ANSWER:
Thanks for insulting me for the many hours i spent working on the faq so that
you may simply write it off as stupid advice.

"I think you misunderstood what I was saying and for that I apologize.  I
believe I stated that I LOVED your walkthrough and I was merely pointing out a
spot that gave me trouble.  My email was clearly meant to be lighthearted.
You're either very young or just didn't pick up on what I meant so sorry."
"JaXboxChick77/Marcia" "I drink, therefore I am."

ANSWER:
If it was meant to be lighthearted why do you insult me by saying i must be
young in the very next sentence?
The jury is still out as to whether you are actually insulting me or simply,
unintentionally, contradicting yourself.
Either way i am confused as i cannot decide whether i should be annoyed or
perplexed.

ANSWER:
Look at the big abyss that lara just crossed. Now look right. You will see a
statue. On top of the statue is the ball. Grapple it and yank it. The statue
will come crashing down along with the ball.

Hope this helps.

CHEAT CODES
-----------
[Time trial glitch]
First off, you must complete the level you wish to attempt the time
trial in. Now, at the main menu, choose replay level. Now start the
level and play for a few seconds. Next exit out of the level and go
back to the main menu. Now go back to the same level you just played
but this time, on a difficulty level rather than time trial. Now
start playing and once you get to a checkpoint that you want to start
the time trial again from, cause yourself to die. Now upon respawning
the time trial clock will have begun, from your current location rather
than at the start of the level! Full credit is given to *MSCL* from the
forums at www.tombraiderforums.com for this awesome cheat.
NOTE: This only works on some version of the game as some have been 
tested and disproven, whilst testing on a different version worked. My
guess is there is something different in the copies from different 
parts of the world.

All cheat codes must be unlocked first. To do this, you need to 
complete certain things in the game. To my knowledge there is no way 
around this.

[Texture less mode]
Hold Backspace and press 1 key.

[Display enemy hit points]
Hold Backspace and press 2 key.

HACKS AND EDITS
---------------
None so far. Send some in so I can add them!

EASTER EGGS
-----------

-The handstand

The handstand could be said to be an easter egg. Its a holdover from
previous tomb raider titles that has survived many iterations.

-Goaaaaaaaal!

When you enter Peru for the first time, there is a soccer ball
(football to some) on your right. Kick it past the dummy in front of
you and between the two fences into the opening. You will hear an
announcer say "Goaaaaaal!" and hear a crowd cheer. LOL.

-Crystal dynamics rule!

This little easter egg is a texture with the words C ystal Dynamics ule
on it. More information needs to be gathered to properly document this
one.

-Natla Industries crates

Some crates are labeled with Natla Industries. This is a call back
to the original game. More information needs to be collected to fully
document this one.

OK well this is the first game outside of RTS that I have made a FAQ
for so its gunna be interesting to say the least. I downloaded the demo
as soon as it came online and finished it within the hour. Well it was
short but sweet nonetheless. I mean all the physics were there, there
were a couple enemies, a total of 3 weapons, the grapple, ALL her moves
plus a decent puzzle to figure out. I have to admit the puzzle got me
for most of that hour. I wasnít used to the actual physics of the game!
I was used to heavy things barely moving! I never realised that simply
running up the seesaw was going to propel the cage onto the deck! I
needed to jump onto the end! Well it wasnít a good idea to get it right
anyway! The demo ends just after you solve the puzzle. Oh well only a
couple days to wait anyway.

                                     ~`o'~

Well, gamefaqs is its usual slow self with their updates. So far I have
waited a full week for my FAQ to be posted and its still ready for
content review. What exactly is happening there? Anyway I will be
beginning my full write up of all the levels in the next day or two so
its gunna be an endless stream of tapping coming from the keyboard. Not
that you the reader will ever know as about 6 people in the world have 
seen this so far. Again, thank gamefaqs.com. Oh well, I will have to
settle with putting it on another site for the time being until they 
get their act together. First it was "unreleased", meaning the game was
not released which is total BS - it actually was released the day 
prior, outside of where the gamefaqs owner (cjayc) lives - therefore
its not released! Then it seems he doesnít like justified text! OMFG! 
Now he just isnít publishing it, it seems because I said that it was in 
fact released. I wish people would actually research their facts. Oh 
and it didnít matter that all the information contained in this FAQ was
entirely DEMO related. Sigh...

                                     ~`o'~

Nothing much has happened since the last update of yesterday. I finally 
started on the levels. Since this is going to take me a while, please
bear with me as I go through each level one by one. I think the hardest 
part is getting through all the levels as fast as possible and noting
everything down on this FAQ at the same time! Well anyway, back to the 
game I spose!

                                     ~`o'~

I hope everyone has had a great easter and got loads of chocolates...
and then lost all your teeth... LOL! Well I am on holiday at the moment
so I have been away from the gaming scene for a while. Donít worry I
will be hard at work on this guide next week. Expect to have at least 
another level completed with walkthrough from beginning to end of those
levels with secrets and all. Oh and with the other smaller sections - 
they will be either complete next week or near on. This small update
will only contain a new website that needs to be added to the allow
list. Seeing as how I am nowhere near home or my original copy of my
guide.

                                     ~`o'~

Forums are the best source of new information I swear! Anything new 
always comes from the forums of games first. Work has begun on Peru
finally. Since I was away all of the easter break and therefore away 
from my pc. But as the saying goes, back to work.

                                     ~`o'~

Hey fellow tomb raiders! I am back and the work is continuing. I have
finished another level and added a few bits and pieces about the place.
Also I am utterly without words about the overall response to this faq
so far. At the time of writing this, I had a total of 6000 odd hits to
my homeworld 2 faq, 2000 odd hits to my nexus the jupiter incident faq
and OMFG 81000 odd hits to this faq. Yes that is correct! eighty one
thousand! OMFG I cant see how that is possible. I mean I am getting 500
hits per day which donít make sense when homeworld 2 and nexus tji
combined and times by 10 still gets beaten by tomb raider legend
without breaking a sweat! Well that settles it! This guide will be put
into overdrive in the next couple weeks and will be fully complete
before a month is up. This is the reason the other two faqs arenít
finished yet. Lack of fan base or 'desire' for help on those two games.
Rest assured, the enormous amount of emails, coupled with the hit
ratings, will ensure this guide gets completed as soon as humanly
possible! :P

                                     ~`o'~

I just got a message from a certain person, who shall remain nameless 
that had the most shocking question I have received in an email or over
msn about my guide or the game in general. The question was about a 
topic of questionable nature in regards to skin textures for the Lara 
character. In the future, if I receive such things again, whoever is
sending the email, shall have the email deleted instantly. If this is 
done in msn, you will be blocked permanently. I will not tolerate sick 
people contacting me via any method. You sick people have been warned.

                                     ~`o'~

OK time to get some more work done, now that the start of the TAFE
term has finished and everything settles down again - and I get more
time to put into this. I received an email from someone screaming for
the rest of the guide as he was up to where my previous update ended
and I would guess he either couldnt or didnt want to go any further.
Well, relax, I get my work done during the week but the weekends are
all mine! The only reason for the couple week delay between 0.30 and 
0.35 was the start of term 3 at TAFE is always a hassle as its a very 
busy time. I gotta organise books, classes, timetables and a new flash
drive. Phew! I am slowly getting back onto a normal schedule! I also 
got an email from a nice lady who provided me with proper terminology
for the various gymnastics moves performed by Lara in the game. Thanks
for that! And as for that wierd move, Tkachev move, well thanks Mariano
Villegas for the information regarding that.

                                     ~`o'~

Well I am getting there. Almost to 50% complete and completely to 50%
energy level. Another week or two and I will have written up the entire
walkthough. For those that read this guide, I really hope you get what
you came for when you read this as it takes hours to write a single
level. Now I have clocked over 30,000 words and am starting to feel the
strain again. But dont worry the last levels will write themselves. 
Meanwhile I will be suckin some scotch and coke and sittin on the
nearby beach enjoyin the sun. Who am I kidding? Its winter and I have
to write the levels myself ffs! Yes guys and girls the Croft Manor will
be done, but as its the last level - its kind of a bonus level - and as
such gets done after you complete the game anyway, I will be doing that
after the walkthrough has been completed. So if you ask me about the
Croft Manor I wont have many answers as I am yet to fully complete it
too. I have completed the game about 10 times and yes I havent
completed the Manor. Patience is the key boys and girls.

                                     ~`o'~

Well, this is a massive update as the biggest change on this version was the
alteration of the characters per line. It was previously 71 as per the standard
for guides years ago. But the more recent times have changed the CPL standard
to 79 so therefore I initiated the alteration to 79 for this version and
beyond. I really hope this makes one hell of a difference as this takes
freaking ages to do. Imagine going through over 4000 lines of text and altering
it so that it took up the 79 characters instead of the hard return at 71. Apart
from that, there were many changes of the small nature here and there. I also 
added a new signature. Let me know what you guys think of it. I think of it as 
the new replacing the old.

                                     ~`o'~

I finally got around to continuing my walkthrough, as i have been meaning to do 
so for a long time. I know a lot of people keep asking me to complete it, but
when you have so little time - what do you do? Its either work or college or
family issues or even my own personal stuff. Hell i am having less and less 
time these days for myself let alone for others. Just a quick request guys and 
girls, gimme a break from the relentless emails as its more than i can handle 
these days. By all means send me an email but please be patient as i have a lot 
on my plate. I do intend to finish all of my faqs - whether it takes me half my 
life or not. They are a labour of love so keep that in mind.

Regards,
Mouse.
