I just got my copy today, and I love it. Have finished the others, exept Chronicles, thanks to a computer breakdown. I like the darkness and more seriosly toned game.

I haven't lost it, I just can't find it....

I finished this yesterday; it's a much easier game to play as it's more obvious where you are supposed to go next, most of the time. I usually have to resort to some sort of cheat, but not this game; even the bosses are easier when you know how. Thought most enjoyable level was the bioresearch as it was a pleasant change to see some colour.

Thanks Moogie and Dadguy, for asking and answering re- the intro. scenes. I can't get them to play either. It must be something straightforward, but I can't suss it out ?!?!

They work from Explorer, as you recommended, though.

Cheers,

Gelert. smile

I gave up on this game a while ago in favour of TR2 and probably 3 next, and 4 and even 5 (which I just picked up for a song). A lot of people liked it, but it seems many felt let down by it. I didn't feel like I was playing Tomb Raider - it was more like a hybrid between TR and something like NOLF, though without the humour.


No fancy-pantsy Elven dagger-twirlers. Just tough guys.

Greetings Gelert and Hagatha,

The chatter about AOD has gone dark in the past couple months. Seems we have finished or chucked the game in lieu of others. I know Hagatha's feelings from other threads.

Myself, I must be easy to please. I found the game beautiful to look at, fun to explore, and nice to listen to. I had some dissatisfaction with aspects of the movement (Hagatha and I jumped off of many a railing to our deaths) but all in all I had a good time.

Gelert, I can't remember what fixed that video glitch for many folks. I never had it. The videos look better playing on MS Media Player anyway. If you want to get to the bottom of it, make sure you are DX 9.0 and check to see if you have installed the latest patch. Remember, that once you apply the patch that the CHEATS won't work (if that's important to you).

Happy gaming!

Dadguy

Thanks Dadguy. Hi Hagatha.

Yeah, I'm only now approaching the Louvre dig site. I'm at the second set of security beams near the Mona Lisa. It's good so far, but nothing like the my favourite TRs, TR1, TR4 and TR3. TR2 was pretty good too, but I didn't like Chronicles at all. What ruined that one finally for me was a really bad bug near the end, where the nasty guy wouldn't follow Lara when she was upping and downing the dipped fllor and the helicopter was shooting at her. I tried that hundreds of times until I read in a walkthru that if she went too fast he didn't come after her and so you couldn't trap him. Poor game all round for me.

I really hope this one doesn't go the way of Indy and Emperor's Tomb. I gave up on that after that ridiculous scene when the nasty guy - can't remember his name - came after Indy in a tank over all those pits and swings. I skipped that level - I hate doing that - and then stooped where Indy was jumping those floating platforms. Not having save capability was bad, but I thought the game was far, far too much combat and peril compared to Infernal Machine. ET was the most disappointed I've ever been with a game. Pleeeease don't let Lara go the same way !

I'm using a Sidewinder joypad with TRAOD and it is much easier than the keyboard for me. The stairs are still a bit of a pain, but the worst two things are manoeuvering Lara when she's autoaiming (heard that's a big problem later with Boaz), and having to piddle around with the Tab key to get to the inventory and to reload and change weapons.

I have DX9.0b and I got the patch already. No difference. It didn't even correct the face graphics of the Cafe owner - half frontward and half backward. I can't see it's made any difference at all yet, except the game hasn''t crashed since I put it on. Before it crashed at the boxing contest in the church, near the rubble from the ceiling. What was the point of that contest anyway ? Betting on who wins ? Was it important to do ??

Sorry for the long ramble. I'm off to Paris again !

Fingers crossed ! rolleyes

You bring back memories! I did make it through that tank scene in Indy's Emporer's Tomb (I think that was another Von something like Von Croy now that you mention it), but I agree; I hate those near impossible tasks.

I didn't have the TR Chronicles bug (or got lucky and missed it) that you mentioned, but agree that level (running and jumping over the pits with the helicopter shooting) was brutal.

The boxing contest was some way for them to add gameplay to get Lara some extra cash. I guess it was a cute idea.

Have fun, Gelert!

Dadguy
