Part 7 (http://www.tombraiderforums.com/showthread.php?t=151900) was too close to call so here is the run-off :)



There is a run-off (http://www.tombraiderforums.com/showthread.php?t=151899) for the best add-on level after the Gold Edition (http://www.tombraiderforums.com/showthread.php?p=3630815#post3630815) poll was too close to call for sure.



The poll for best manor (http://www.tombraiderforums.com/showthread.php?t=150994) is currently ongoing. The winning manor will be entered as a level in the final round of the tournament.

This is a tough one, but I think I'll go for England. There are some parts of the level I don't particularly like, but it does feel more like a TR level. ;)

England is my favourite, the lighting and mood, the fun playing in the museum and the flooded tunnels below, the eerie tomb area and its guardian leviathan which came back for another try at eating Lara. :D l heard that creepy bellow when you first landed in the tomb lake l could not get to shore fast enough. Although none of the traps or puzzles in the level were that hard, l had fun getting through them.

Ghana looked nicer but there just did not seem to be as much to do and was no where near as fun, at least for me.

Ghana, though after reading your post aussie i may have changed my mind. I was scared stiff of that water and couldnt get to shore fast enough. A way of making it better would have been to let you swim underwater then have this massive dark cave below and if you swam inside the sea-monter would shoot out and pull lara inside in the blink of an eye.

England - mainly for the museum bits. I wasn't all that thrilled by the underground tomb, and the boss fight was more frustrating than fun. But it was still a better level than Ghana.

*Sigh* The first half of England is a perfect example of how Legend completely underused its potential. The ultra-short outdoor bit where Lara has to turn on the electricity was so full of atmosphere - if only they'd made it much longer, it would have been simply amazing. The forklift was underused as well - it was a more realistic vehicle experience than the godawful motorbike, but unless you're trying to get all the secrets, you can use it only for a grand total of about three minutes. :hea:

As the voice over guy from the Honda advert would say "I couldn't have put it better myself", a very well balanced level with all the variety we love in a TR level, action, puzzles, traps, and atmosphere, outstanding. :D

ghana but it was a tough choice between them two.

It's surprising after the results of part 7, but England seems to have th upper hand now.

I should probably say that, despite voting for England, I don't actually consider either of these two levels to be better than the other.

I changed my mind, :o, my vote goes to England.

Nothing can beat surfing on coffins...

(Also, I think there were too many mercenaries in Ghana, I really loved the fact they were absent for such a long time in England.)

Ghana... I never really liked England, I don't know why (maybe it's that serpent boss... I just hate it...).

I love the England level, it was the first level I gathered all of the Rewards from :D however I do hate the serpent. Ghana is my second favorite level though, I don't know why. Whenever I'm bored I just switch on the XBOX and select Ghana, slect Goth outfit, use the Soul reaver cheat and play some MGMT and James Blunt, it gets rid of boredom instantly. :)

They're just as bad/good as each other but Ghana is nicer to look at so Ghana it is.

England sucks. Gooooooooo Ghana!!!! :p










But really, I think that both of them suck in the grand scheme of things... ;)

I loved the vibrancy of Ghana, and that cliff diving scene was bloody cool. England was quite depressing. And creepy. :p

Tie! :yik:

The ultra-short outdoor bit where Lara has to turn on the electricity was so full of atmosphere - if only they'd made it much longer, Omg, I so agree! You are the only other person I've ever heard say that about that bit!! It is the most atmospheric bit of the game imo and felt sort of real.

Anyway, for the run-off I definitely pick England, my favourite Legend level.

Go England! :p Better than greeny-grey Ghana, bleh.

Edit: Hehehe, 24/23 England/Ghana after my vote. ;)

The only reason i voted Ghana, is cuz we actually got less of Zip and Alister. Thank God. :rolleyes:

Oh and the swan dive!

Japan :)

Oh wait! there´s no Japan option...

So I vote for England, is not my fav level, but definitely is better than Ghana, the whole Darkness made it a good level IMO :D

Tough choice as they seem so different, yet sooo Tomb Raider. I chose Ghana for its beauty and traps.

England - they both sucked but Ghana sucked harder and England had at least one or two moments where I felt like I was playing Tomb Raider.

England is probably my favourite level of all of CD's original levels (IE, not including Anniversary), and I loved the underground bit. It's also the only level where Zip and Alister amused me.

Ghana was slightly dull for me, but the cliff dive at the beginning of the level is one of the greatest moments in the game.

I'm surprised at this poll. I always found Ghana to be boring. I wonder why people like it so much. Africa, Jungle, 1st Crystal Dynamics level ever shown? :whi:
