It was fun, but every time I shoot the Red Ghost and his head goes down, Lara only runs into him and gets stuck mad and it's really annoying, especially when the light around the painting moves all around the statues frown cry

I've finally gotten the painting happydance I've now made it inside the Bio - Research Facility, but I hate the camera view. Specially when you have to jump to other parts frown mad

Smiley,

Wish I could help you out with the games, but I'm not much on the action part, just can't do a lot of it..such a spastic person.
I've always thought these games sound so good though
Glad you're getting some help and encouragement with the game.

Have fun..

I believe this Tomb Raider game had a different development team than it's predecessors . That's probably why it has so many bugs . They did do a really great job with the story .

Yes, I have heard that this game was a bug-fest! That is why I have never bought it.

I love reading the adventures folks have with these games, and had to see the movie of course, although haven't seen the 2nd one yet..

So, yep I think the stories are good..feel the same with Indie Jones and the Thief series, just can only play for a bit though..action and I can't agree it seems..but I do love the stories they unweave as you go.

Lol, it's a good game, the only thing I dislike about it is when the camera view ends up at the front of the character.

Yeah , and you can't see where you're going or where you're trying to jump to . Problems like that should have been addressed before the game was released . smile

Edit : I really enjoyed the game despite all of it's flaws .

I hated 2 more things. Lara not being able to run properly while guns drawn and not being able to shoot while jumping, like in other tr series. But everything else is cool.

One thing I forgot to mention that I also hate. Is when you have the wepon drawn and sometimes Lara aims at a barrel and when you try to fix it by aiming at a guard, she still gets back to aiming at the barrel.

I don't know about the PC version , but in the PS2 version , sometimes it was like she was running in slow motion. That was really annoying when I was trying to do the jumping puzzles .

Yeah, I noticed that during the early parts of the game. Until Lara got the runing ability.

I finally finished Angel of Darkness and not any to soon. My PC kept crashing and rebooting itself when I tried to load a saved game or when I played a scene over and over because I had trouble jumping or shooting etc.

The environment is great in the game. It was my first experience with an action game. I usually play Adventure games. It was quite an experience!

My sister sent me Tomb Raider II Gold. Can you tell me something about the game. Does it have any bugs, glitches or patches I need to know about?

wave wave

Hi Gerry ,

Congrats on finishing the game . I couldn't find any patches for TR 2 Gold . That game was made by the original TR development team , so you shouldn't have any problem with it . It was published in 98 , so I'm not sure how well it will run on XP ( if that is your OS ) . Lara will be a bit different in the game . There won't be any role-playing elements and Lara has no melee combat capability ( hand to hand or sword , club etc ) . However , she's got an unlimited supply of ammo in her pistols thumbsup

If you have trouble installing or playing the game due to crashes or such . Just post in the Glitches , Bugs and Patches forum where all of our computer geeks hang out smile

The early TR games (and gold editions) are generally very stable, and TRII gold does work on XP - I just checked. wink

Hopefully you've been given the two disk version of TRII gold, which has the original TRII on one disk, and the extra game on disk 2 - they can be installed independent of one another.

Have fun.

IMHO, TRII and TRIII are the best of the range.

I enjoyed Tomb Raider Chronicles as well . You get to play Lara as a youngster in parts of the game . There are also some terrific cut-scenes .

Hi Robert, gremlin, hugh & popcorneater. It did make me feel good when I finished. I have the 2 disk version of TRII gold.

Glad to hear that I can play it on XP, gremlin. I'll be back if I run into trouble and need you all to help. Thanks for the info. smile smile

I'm about to give up this game. Since it's way to difficult to finish it when the camera view is stuck at the front of the character frown

Hi Smiley ,

Is it stuck in front all of the time or just in certain areas ? Maybe there is a button you can push to change the veiw . I know the camera was a little screwy in the PS2 version , but never got stuck that way . Sound like it may be a glitch .

Sometimes when a game isn't fun anymore, you just have to give it up. They're supposed to be games as in fun, not as an added headache. frown

Smiley456, you might want to go to www.tombraiders.net/stella and download a saved game if you get really frustrated with the game.

I just started playing Tombraider 2 and am about to start Level 3. Had great fun with the speed boat! lol lol

Only problem I am having is I can't play the opening sequence and none of the FMVs. Other than that the game is running OK.
