None of these were particularly tough for me. However, I think that a few of them could end up as close ones... hoping that the Archaeological Dig doesn't overshadow the amazing level that Red Alert! is. ;)

The Lost Valley (no real competition here imo :p)
Area 51 (never liked those levels in TR5)
City of the Dead (this was a rather tough choice, but I think this level is more fun)
Valley of the Kings (both really short, but killing Egyptian ninjas is so much more fun than killing some boring guards and being groped by Kurtis afterwards O_o)
Colosseum (love this level :D)
The Great Pyramid (meh, AOD :p)
The Floating Islands (such a trippy level, love it!)
Red Alert! (see above xD)

The ambience in the Floating Islands is amazing, it's one of TR2's only fine points. City was a nice little level, but it doesn't have enough to offer in order to beat out Floating Islands.

This was one of the easiest ones for me yet. Only one I had to think about is "Galleries Under Siege" versus "Valley of the Kings", everything else was a landslide, either because I really enjoyed one (Lost Valley, Tibetan Foothills, Floating Islands) or the other one was terrible (Submarine, Temple Ruins, Red Alert).

Ain't surprised at all, Derelict Apartment Block SUCKS. :p

Seth94
18-08-11, 16:27
The only surprise imo is Archeological dig level with Red Alert!. I thought Red Alert! would win this one quite easily. :)

Easier than the last division for me.

My votes were for:

Lost Valley - no need to explain why
Area 51 - I didn't like either of the two so I just randomly picked one of them
Tibetan Foothills - City of Dead is one of the worst levels in TR4, Foothills one of the best in TR2 - easy choice for me.
Valley of the Kings - I didn't really like this level but "Galeries under Siege" was just the same as "Louvre Galeries" so no real level for me.
Temple Ruins - Fantastic level - can't say that about the Colosseum.
Derelic Apartment Block - I feel bad for voting for this level, but I think it was a great idea, even if it was really short. the Great Pyramid however was just dull
Floating Islands - AMAZING level :pi:
The Archealogical Dig - Again a rather short level that had a great puzzle though. I really liked it :tmb:

Tibetan Foothills - City of the Dead Boo! :(
Valley of the Kings - Galleries under siege :eek:
Colosseum - Colosseum Hurrah!
The Great Pyramid - The Great Pyramid 'ah!
The Floating Islands - City :smk:
Red Alert! - Archaeological Dig :smk:

Hmm, yes... two very close match-ups here. :mis: I don't really care too much on Temple Ruins vs. Colosseum, they were both good-but-not-amazing levels, but I DO hope that Red Alert! wins over The Archaeological Dig.

Red Alert! is amazing. It's an epic challenge, for starters, like every final TR level should be. The action is incredible, the shooting ranges are tough, the enemies are frickin' awesome and it's just an intense, epic close to Chronicles. VCI Tech, for that matter, is all amazing. :tmb:

Now, here's the other side - VCI Tech needs to be flushed down the toilet! :mad:

I remember that wretched helicopter and those horrible fps moments with the men in the suits that required headshots. And I seem to remember having only 1 bullet on many a occasion. In fact, I have a sneaking suspicion that I actually had to restart once because I had NO bullets at all.

Yes, it's all coming back to me now. :p

But it's an amazing challenge! :(

Doesn't the HK ammo re-appear in certain spots? :confused: I understand that it's a different case with medipacks, although doing the entire section with minimal damage isn't a terrible feat. :p I don't know, I just feel that Red Alert!, along with The 13th Floor and Escape With the Iris, are three of the coolest levels that Core Design has ever created. :D

40 Fathoms is a meh level imo. There are aspects which are quite good, but most of it is boring imo. :)

sheepman23
18-08-11, 22:21
40 Fathoms is going against Temple of Poseidon in Division 8... why do I get the feeling that ToP is going to win? :(

To me, 40 Fathoms is just an incredibly brilliant idea. At the beginning, we have Lara in the middle of the deep blue sea, with no obvious air pocket to surface in. There are great white sharks to make the situation more dire, and you can't see very well in any direction since it's so dark. There are very few human enemies (a feat for a TR2 level :p), a great timed puzzle with the burners :tmb:, and the Jade Dragon secret, which is just intensifying and a really cool find! :D

Voted. I chose Archeological Dig over Red Alert! as it's the lesser of two evils. Though I must admit that the dig is one of the better levels in AoD.

There are some mysteries here: Johnnay is at it again :p. Does he have some kind of OCD that won't allow him to leave an option, even a blank one with zero point? :pi:

And: are Blackmoor and Seth in some sort of competition of their own? :pi:

That's why i picked red alert over Archaeological Dig because it's longer and more challenging and fun.

Was it really as bad as the blank option, seeing as they both have 1 vote each? :p

I understand why it is losing by so much though, since all it had was a challenging boss battle. Although that is good in some ways, because most of the boss battles in TR are quite easy. :)
