What do you guys think are the scariest areas in a tomb raider and why?
Mine are:

Tomb raider 2-The spider cave because it's just so dark and has a huge spider nest with a pulsating light.

Tomb raider 4- Of course when the bull burst throught the door for the first time in the gaurdian level.

Tomb raider 5- When your in the maze in the ireland levels with the werewolf thing chasing you :eek: scariest thing core ever did.

Tomb raider legend- Sorry but i think in england when you swim throught the lake the first time it's so damn scary cause you think something will pop out.

TR1 - passage before the scion room
TR2 - floating islands because of jade warriors, I dislike that area.
TR3 - Willard's lair
TR4 - Citadel
TR5 - Red Alert level. It freaks me out because of game stopping bug
AOD - (Sanitarium) When proto resurrects.

For me it's hands down in the level Sacred Lake in The Last Revelation. The very first playthrough of the game I had channeled the audio to the game through my stereo speakers and that eerie, serpent-like sound while climbing up the pole freaked me out good... I kept expecting a giant serpent or some crazy creature to greet me at the top. :p

Ireland was pretty creepy at times. I was always wondering when something might pop out at me.

i used to make my mom do it for me, but she has a hard time playing video games now, so i have to do it by myself and it makes me wish i wore diapers. :'I

TR1 - Any Egypt level where you can hear an Atlantean around a corner.
TR2 - Catacombs of the Talion, surely? That room with the yetis.
TR3 - Aldwych. The mine shaft thing, escaping that drill.
TR4 - The Mastabas. I hate the level itself, but running down dark tunnels and having dogs jump out from around corners does it for me.
TRC - Not scary at all.
AoD - Not scary at all.
TRL - Not scary at all.
TRA - Not scary at all.
TRU - Not scary at all.

Gah, this place still scares me after all these years... I'm pretty spider-phobic as well.

One bit that freaked me out immensely was the first bronze statue fight in TR5. That scene coupled with the music just creeped me out too much and made me turn off the game (more than once too).

Temple of Xian, spider cave - hands down. I mean, it's super dark, and there are GIANT SPIDERS that actually FALL on top of you as you pass by. Nothing can be more scary than that. :yik:

The cat mummies in TR1 also scared me a lot, because of the horrible sounds they make and how they attack you quite suddenly. I walked around those areas as if on eggshells just because of them.

There are other moments that, while not scary per se, made me give memorable jumps on my chair. Like that infamous dog in Aldwych. I know the area where he appears, but I simply can't avoid jumping every time he does.

TR1 - Haven't played
TR2 - Temple of Xian, spider cave.
TR3 - UFO room in A51. The aliens freek me out
TR4 - Whole Burial Chambers level. ;_;
TR5 - Ireland Maze. WTF is that thing...
TR6 - Kurtis levels did scare me the most.
TR7 - Arthur's tomb area (The building, the lake, noises...)
TRA - Atlantis. And the big statue room in Temple of Khamoon.
TR8 - Mexico, Challenge main room or whole last level.

When she says: "I'm falling in love all over again" :yik:

When I noticed the total gameplay time in the game timer after the ending scene and it was 5 hours of gameplay. :yik:

And the icing on the cake could be when lara is suddenly run over and killed by a train.

~ offshore rig (the whole level)
~ diving areaHow are those two levels scary? :p

For me, it's got to be that bit in RX Tech Mines where you slide down into a dark room with what sounds like a really loud heater in the background. That's where you first find those massive mutants. Not sure what that area is supposed to be to be honest.

-Floating Islands really scares me. Its just so tense. I love it though. :D
-All of Ireland. I have the added scare factor that its not only terrifically spooky, its set in my country. :p
-Egypt in Anniversary. Again, not so much scary as it is very, very tense and creepy. All that whispering is just eerie.

Yes that was scary!! You actually can encounter one of those massive mutants the first time after riding the middle cart. This mutant is also scary should you decide to trigger it & explore that cave for the goodies:
