Obelisk of Khamoon
Venice
The Lost Valley
Colosseum
Desert Railroad
Louvre Galleries
Nevada Desert
Sanctuary of the Scion

Some nice levels in this round. I stumbled over Louvre Galleries v. Jungle, but in the end, there's just something about The Louvre... :)

Ah... there are even more amazing levels in this poll than the previous one. :( It's getting very tough.

Obelisk of Khamoon: One of the most underrated levels of TR1, IMO - it's incredible in a lot of different ways, from the exploration to the beauty of it. :) Coastal Ruins is rather confusing and several parts are annoying/boring, so this was by far the easiest pick of this round.

Crash Site: Top 10 level right here, there are very few levels that could beat it. Venice is good, but the sheer brilliance of Crash Site overshadows it IMO. :D

The Lost Valley: Toughest pair of this round - two amazing levels, but in the end I had to give it to this one as I've got more nostalgic ties with it.

The Floating Islands: Colosseum is very atmospheric and a great TR experience, but The Floating Islands wins for me as its one of the most cool and different ideas of the series. The atmosphere just pulses, and there's an incredibly spooky sense the whole way throughout, something that very few levels in TR possess. :tmb:

Temple of Xian: Sorry Desert Railroad, but my second-favorite level of the series wins this one by a mile. :p

Louvre Galleries: I couldn't resist going with AoD's only standout level here, although Jungle is very nice and an awesome opener to TR3. :)

Nevada Desert: Again, a very difficult match-up as both levels probably make it into my Top 20. However, I ended up going with Nevada Desert as it feels a bit more unique to me, no other level of the series is quite like it. It's also so bright and cheery. :jmp:

Sanctuary of the Scion: Aquatic Research Area is one of the better-executed ideas of AoD, so it deserves credit - but the clear winner here is Sanctuary of the Scion, atleast for me. :D

I voted for Tibetian foothills but I agree that both Lost valley and Tibetian foothills are overrated. They aren't bad at all, but they are 'worshipped' (lol couldn't resist) more than they should be.

I agree with tomee, it's rather underrated if you ask me. And this is coming from someone who considers it his least-favorite of the classic games. :p

I think Lost Valley is overrated, but I think Tibetan Foothills is even more. It is, by far, the worst TR2 level for me, I don't see how many people include it in their favourites!

Well... this is why I include it in my favorites:
- The bright, open skies and windy ambience are a welcome change from the dreary Maria Doria
- The canyon area, which is so much fun to climb and explore
- Snowmobile and the music :p
- I really like the whole trip for the Hut Key, and then having to return

I could list more but will keep it at this for now. :)

I respectfully disagree. :) Venice is a very memorable level, but Crash Site is even more. It's like Lost Valley 2.0, only more challenging, more expansive, and with more dinosaurs. :mis: It and Madubu Gorge are the most perfect back-to-back pair of levels in the series, IMO. :tmb:

sheepman23

Yeah, but it's also more innovative with the use of Australian soldiers helping you out. Venice actually bores me a little bit, I'm not going to lie. It's a really nice-looking level, and incredibly memorable, but Bartoli's Hideout does a better job of keeping me interested. :tmb:

I guess I won't mind if Venice wins, as I know how popular of a level it is, but Crash Site is one of my favorite TR levels of all time. Most definitely in my Top 10. :D

It seems like I'm one of the only ones who doesn't really like the TR2 Venice or underwater levels. I think they're kind of drab, they never seemed particularly special to me.

I never really liked city levels all that much in TR, a few exceptions with Lud's Gate, Aldywich, Red Alert!, but that's pretty much it.

Coastal Ruins is memorable... but sometimes not for the best reasons. It's a beautiful level, no doubt about that, but the puzzle for getting into the Catacombs is awful. You have to go through 4 or 5 loading screens, as well a crawlspace 4 of 5 times that requires you to climb in, crawl to the other side, turn around, back out, and drop down. It sounds like I'm nit-picking, but it's really a very annoying task that could've been avoided. :(

Obelisk of Khamoon... I love it. :D It's just solid from top to bottom, the exploration factor is amazing, it's one of the prettiest levels of TR1, and it correctly mixes all of the elements that make Tomb Raider amazing. :tmb:

(By the way, what is up with the creepy girl avatars? :vlol:)

While I agree that it's one of the best levels of AoD, "Sanctuary of the Scion" is a name that any TR fan - whether or not they've played TR1 - will recognize. That sphinx is something that every TR fan will recognize. ARA is cool, and has the brilliant puzzle of feeding the underwater mutant, but it just ends up in the shadow of SotS, plain and simple.

Seth94

I don't agree. There are sphinx's in lots of other TR levels, so I don't see how it should only standout in this level. Personally, I think Sanctuary of the Scion is a great level, but there's something about it which doesn't compare to Aquatic Research Area. Just my opinion though. :)

Desert Railroad versus Temple of Xian? That's just rude again. Two of my favourite levels pitted against one another and both are really very different from one another. I picked TOX because it is more 'Tomb Raider' but I do love both levels.

I love Tibetan Foothills a lot, as you know, but very little competes with the nostalgia of The Lost Valley. And the t-rex is part of that - I think that's what Love2Raid was trying to say. The t-rex doesn't automatically make a level better, it just increases the memorability of it. :tmb:

But even when you take out the raptors and t-rex, The Lost Valley is still an awesome level - it's one of those where you look around at the valley and think "Wow, look at all of the rocks I get to climb on!" and then you get to. :D

There is a lot to do, and I remember that we even got lost in this level (we could not find the last cog, the one that's at the top of the waterfall, on the other side of the 'river'). We ended up climbing the rocks till we reached the end of the map. :vlol:

I'm pretty surprised Venice isn't destroying Crash Site. It's not the most "Tomb Raidery" level but it possesses a unique elegance and a remarkable climax, making for a memorable experience.

By contrast, Crash Site feels like a silly blunt instrument. It has that painful monkey-bar sequence that just kills the pacing and makes you curse the camera. And if you're patient enough to endure it, your reward is...uzi clips? That's it? In addition, there's no real sense of isolation and the whole level culminates in a turret sequence like some half-hearted military shooter.

And raptors in the trees? Puh-leez.

Never liked human enemies in TR to be honest, there were so many in TR2. :o

So if that's the case, why not stick a T-rex in every level, and then it will be amazing. :confused: My point is, dinosaurs are just enemies like any other enemies, and imo, are no more exciting to battle than the atlantian creatures or the tinnos monsters. ;)

For me, Lost Valley wasn't very nostalgic. In fact, there's very little about it that makes me think, 'yeah, that's amazing'. Finding the three cogs isn't exactly a fun or difficult challenge, and the rest of the level is just placing the cogs, and not much else. A rather mediocre level imo. :)

There's a lovely balance about the structure of The Lost Valley that goes beyond the dinosaurs.

There's the waterfall, a deep pool to explore, a mechanism to restart and a hidden valley filled with deserted buildings, bridge and rocky nooks and crannies to explore. The whole thing is perfectly diverse within a small focused area of exploration - small slippy pathways beside swirling streams, hidden damp green, inner workings of some ancient water control system, a hidden passageway behind the waterfall, dark caves with wolves, vegetation covered rocks and a hidden hole leading out into a wide long, lost valley.

And raptors in the trees? Puh-leez.Ooh, I thought that worked really really well, and I didn't even vote for this level on here. :D

Again, this is all opinion, and in my opinion The Lost Valley is perfect. I know several think it's overrated... but I don't really think it is. It still gives me chills to this day when I walk out in the valley and a t-rex stomps at me. :yik: That's nostalgia. :D

Well, I expect a better variety of gameplay from the previous levels, and imo, there wasn't. :o There was a much better variety of gameplay in level 3 of TR2 and TR3, so I don't think being the third level in the series means to say it can have mediocre gameplay. ;)

Well, I expect a better variety of gameplay from the previous levels, and imo, there wasn't. :o There was a much better variety of gameplay in level 3 of TR2 and TR3, so I don't think being the third level in the series means to say it can have mediocre gameplay. ;)

I respectfully disagree. While I love The River Ganges, the biggest part of its gameplay is the quad bike, unless you decide to take the right-hand route, and even then it's not really diverse. The variety is a bit better in Bartoli's Hideout, but The Lost Valley still trumps it for me. Again, the memorability factor. :tmb:

Also, I think it's worth pointing out that The Lost Valley was the third level of the series. In the case of TR2 and TR3, they obviously spiced earlier levels up a little bit since most people were familiar with TR1 and its gameplay elements already. :)

Well, I can point out many flaws with the level. My previous posts give some of the faults, but I won't bother posting any more, because it won't affect the outcome of the result of the poll, and I feel that my reasons would be ignored anyway. :p

The experience > any flaws. :D

Also, what more could you ask for gameplay? A huge t-rex, raptors (combat: check), lots of climbing on the rocks (exploration: check), the cog puzzle (although you didn't like it, it still counts as a puzzle :D), lots of hidden areas (secrets: check), the list goes on and on.

That's the thing though, it doesn't. I agree that there was good combat, and that the exploration was good, (although I still think there could have been more). I think that the cog puzzle was good, but getting the cogs should have been more challenging imo. :)

However, there isn't really much else that's great about the level. The atmosphere was rather dull imo. The secrets were rather easy to find as well. :o
