Greetings. What games have you cheated on before beating the game. Poll devised by koy'peled_ouy'tio.

I've never cheated on a game without finishing it first! Unless you count walkthroughs... Well that's uh, another story :D

cheating is bad, but sometimes can add to the fun of the game.

i always try and beat the game before cheating. this applies to all games, but with the tomb raider series i beat the games (i have played) and then applied cheats.

there should be a 'none of them option' i think http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/xmas3.gif

I cant submit my vote, because there is no None option...

Draco. Good point. Mark your name by hitting reply instead of voting if you have never cheated. Apologies.

Do walkthroughs count as cheating?? Just wanna know if I have to vote or not! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

I have cheated after I have completed the games, like I'll complete one of them, then if I havent been able to save where an Fmv cuts in, I'll use the level skip to watch it for example! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

I dont use cheat codes before I have completed the game however!.. okok I did once, in tr3 I get as far as inside the temple in the second level, and then skip the level, because I really cant stand those statues standing there, and you know theyre going to come to life any minute! And the background music makes it worse for me.... Ok im a wimp!! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

Yes. I would think walkthroughs count as cheating. Mild cheating, but cheating all the same http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

Cheating on TR3 PSX is simply mandatory if you want to get rid of these damn save crystals.

It reminds me that I actually found TR3 much, MUCH easier on the PC than on PSX since this saving system was dropped in favor of the usual 'infinite' system. Not even to mention that the limited save crystals of the PSX have been replaced by... life crystals on the PC :eek: :D

Now I better understand why TR3 was less than popular on the PSX whereas it was extremely enjoyable amongst the PC users (in France at least). I never figured out why before. The gameplay is dramatically enhanced (should I say 'softened') on the PC. Never play at TR3 on the PSX if you can't stand neverending frustration!

TombRaider is the only game I play. I finish the game first without cheating, then cheat to find all the secrets so I can see what areas I missed.

Wait a min....TLR, if we X the box, does that mean we cheat or not cheat? :confused:

I can't vote!. That silly "script error" box keeps comming up and won't let me go into the poll.
For the record- I cheat BUT only after I've beat the game. That's the truth too.

Elen :D :D
But I can't see the results :(

Suzanne, giving your vote shows "What games have you cheated on before beating the game"

I have only "cheated" when I was very near the end of the game and I was almost out of health. It was either cheat or start over or maybe backup a few savegames (Never had luck going back). http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

21-12-02, 02:22
Whats up with the 230%, isn't the highest 100%?

21-12-02, 04:57
well i can remember if i have used the cheats on the other tomb raiders but one thing is for sure ...only use it to pass levels and to kill some enemies that i couldnīt kill when i first played the game without cheating becouse i didnīt got enought lifes....

by example i killed the dragon from the 2 about 6 or 7 times...and the giant atlantean from the 1 about well every time i can playe it i kill him...

on the forth there are the skeletons... well for them i have the granade launcher... or the explosives arrows... i just find funny when you destroy their heads......

and in the area 51 with the desert eagle ...wow i just make a masacre....carnage it a baby compared to me...

well thatīs all...
i just use cheats when i have finished the games ...never before http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/xmas3.gif :confused:

Would asking for help on the Forum be classed as cheating? :confused: http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/xmas3.gif

Its not possible to win any of the TR series of games without cheating. Using a walkthorugh IS cheating. I am guilty of using walkthorugh, and I would have NEVER finished the games without doing so.

Regarding the walkthroughs, if you relax and not being nervous then you don't need a walkthrough... http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/xmas3.gif

Those are the words I say to meself when Im stuck...

So I guess I have cheated then!. Waaaay back in tr1 I had to ask what to do with the lead bars. I would never have figured that out alone. I've never concidered that as cheating. It's two people working through the game. I've also had to have this person do most of the timed runs in the games.
If this is all cheating, then it is impossible not to!.

I have to admit it the first time I played TR2 ( My very 1st game I bought http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif for PC ) I couldn't even make it to the top of the cliff in the first level :rolleyes: , so I used a walkthru, little did I know. It been ages since I've played it so i'm now playing it again without walkthru or cheats.

When we got our Pc we got tr2 (first tr game i played to http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif ) with it. We never had the net, and I didnt know anything about walkthroughs, I managed without http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif But I was forever getting frustrated and gave up at floating islands because the statues were freaking me out!! Then I bought it on playstation aswell, and completed it without a walkthrough http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif
