I'm beginning to think that I shouldn't have split up the four sub-levels of Hall of Seasons, as none of them have won thus far (and this one probably won't either lol :p). Then again, if they all fail in this round, then we can just count the sub-levels as a part of HoS in the next round. ;)

Oh yeah, and Sanctuary of the Scion is that one level from TR1 that nobody remembers... :vlol:

Sanctuary of the Scion is one of my most hated levels of TR1 :ohn:

Really? I think it falls somewhere in the middle of my list for TR1, but I still love it (and have extremely fond memories of seeing that sphinx for the first time :eek:)

I love Sanctuary of the Scion and all, but I just can't stand the huge wall of O#KJFASMFLSAKOSaowjras in front of the Sphinx where you can bearly see what you can grab and what's just a really ugly texture. ;_;

I like it how Aquatic Research Area and Living Quarters have almost equal votes. It's hard to decide between the two when both are equally claustrophobic (and rather boring, IMO. >.>)

As much as I like the voting, I am really getting confused :p

Isn't it time for at least some simpler nominations or even winners :)

I'm not really sure what you mean. :o

When this poll is over, Round 2 will start. In Round 2, the WINNERS from Round 1 are paired against eachother. And with each upcoming round there will be fewer and fewer levels left in the tournament. ;)

Me too :p

One of my most memorable moments in TR1 is actually standing on a very high ledge near the sphinx while shooting a flying mutant. I don't know why, but that part really stuck in my head and it's one of the first things I think of when I think of TR1.

Aquatic Research Area must surely beat Living Quarters lol. :p For me, Aquatic Research Area was one of the best levels of AOD. Living Quarters was ok, but it was too short and similar to the previous underwater levels. ;)

When will the voting come o a conclusion? :p

I think for each division of voting it's 3 days. But there are several rounds so there won't be an overall winner for a while yet. :)

When will the voting come o a conclusion? :p

Round 1 is almost over. It consisted of 8 polls, and only half of the levels won (there are 64 still in the tournament now ;)).

Round 2 will consist of 4 polls, and only half of those levels will win (32).

Round 3 will have only 2 polls, and only half of those levels will win (16).

Round 4 will have only one poll, and half of those levels will win (8).

Round 5 will also have only one poll, and half of those levels will win (4).

The Semi-Finals will again only have one poll, and half of them will win (2).

The Finals will be the two remaining levels against eachother... and the one that gets more votes is the winner of the tournament. :)

I hope this makes a little more sense...

Voting ends tomorrow! :) EDIT: Also, my reasons for each level I chose, since I haven't given them yet: :p

Nevada Desert: I love everything about this level. :D One of my favorites of the series, probably makes my Top 20 in fact. :tmb: And Wrath of the Beast? :vlol:

The Opera House: Sphinx Complex has a cool idea, but it's too short and kind of repetitive with jumping the pits (there's Giza for you :pi:). The Opera House is just huge, complex, and really cool, save for the depressing amount of goons. :rolleyes:

Escape With the Iris: Love everything about it from top to bottom - the idea of Lara losing her weapons in this dangerous building is just so incredible, it easily is in my Top 10 of the series. I also liked Temple of Puna, but it can't compare to the masterpiece that EWtI is. :)

40 Fathoms: This level also includes a rather original idea of placing Lara underwater with no obvious pocket for air, a very cool level that has some great moments and a pulsing atmosphere. :tmb: Love Temple of Karnak as well, but not quite as much as the best of the Maria Doria levels. :D

Sanctuary of the Scion: Umm... do I need to say anything? :p Actually, SotS isn't actually one of my favorites of the series, but Bouchard's Hideout has such poor quality that this is golden in comparison. :wve:

Thames Wharf: Eh, I don't really like this level a whole lot, but atleast it shoots for some nice exploration and has that EPIC final cutscene :vlol:, and... well, Inside The Great Pyramid is just kinda boring. :o

Von Croy's Apartment: A case of two pretty good levels, but I feel that I need to do AoD justice for whenever it manages to actually have a level that's fun. (lol :p)

Aquatic Research Area: Again, a case of two great-but-not-amazing levels... Living Quarters feels like a rehasing of Wreck of the Maria Doria, so I had to go with the more original Aquatic Research Area here (which also features the fantastic puzzle of feeding the monster :cln:).
