She didn't even crack a nail when she scaled those mountain walls, but I understand your view - CD's realism is laughable. :vlol:

Even in Bolivia Redux, she zipped through the line with her bare hands (the gloves has openings for fingers so it's still bare).

Realistically, Lara should get rope burn quite often, given the number of ropes she climbs on and slides down with bare hands. Then again, every TR game has similarly unrealistic elements, and the rope climbing has been there since TR4, so I don't think it's fair to blame CD for this one.

Yeah, I definitely cringed every time she went down a zipline with her bare hands. She should carry around her own zipline handle to use in such cases :p

Well said. She should have done more than burn her hands though her skin would have ripped right off.

Lara: I'm going to need a clear head for this lads, no distractions please
Zip: Good Luck
lara puts her hands around the wire and starts to slide down.
Lara: OH GOD MY HANDS ARE BURNING!! (lets go of rope and falls down the chasm)
Zip, Alister, Rutland, Amanda and Mercenaries: WTF?

She has skin like leather didn't you know, over a decade of raiding has hardened that skin to such a degree that she can with stand a heat burn from a saucepan handle left near an opposing hot element or something. :)

I think lara would of been able to fit her gloves in her backpack purse

yeh, everytime she goes down the zipline in that level i just go "wait a minute! isn't she gonna get rope burns :confused:" i would traverse the ziplines rather than slide down

I remember in Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb, Indy would throw his whip over a zipline and use it as a handle. I'm currently replaying Legend and can't stand it when Lara slides down a zipline with her bare hands. She could consider carrying some sort of multi-purpose handle.

yes I've always had this thought too since i first play the Japan level.Jumping onto the zip line her bare hands?Jeez totally painfun.But in general TRL isn't always realistic

Why does she not use her grapple to do ropes?

Just thought about that..
