What exactly is the storyline of THE LOST ARTIFACT? Considering I never played it. I want to make sure if it's worth my time buying this game and playing it. Anyone? What could possibly be THE lost artifact?

Hi Bad Azz Croft http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif

This is from tombraiderchronicles (http://www.tombraiderchronicles.com):

"From the lofty towers of the late Dr. Willard's Scottish castle to the eerie catacombs of France, The Lost Artifact unveils the dramatic conclusion of events set in motion in Tomb Raider III.

Upon the death of http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/redface.gif Willard, Lara Croft learns of a lost artifact stowed beneath the Scottish mists at Willard's Loch Ness estate. Rumored to be the legendary Hand of Rathmore, this fifth artifact is the key to unlocking the final secret of the ancient meteor's powers.

There is no time to lose, for whom else shares the secret and has joined the hunt?"

Or there is this from Stella's. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif

Only minutes have passed since the hideous creature that Dr. Willard had become gasped the last breath of its violently short life cycle. The experiment had failed, the gleam of immortality returned to the stars from which it came.

Lara looks on silently, oblivious to the press of the bitter Antarctic wind. Suddenly a ragged figure emerges from the dark, gaping hole of the meteor cavern—it is Willard, a human reborn, but in the throes of death. A hand gestures wildly, a final guttural laugh tears through the silence, the figure slumps forward and is still.

With the snow already forming a ghastly shroud over the body, Lara quickly tears an object form the dead man's grasp. A wallet, its monogrammed "W" now standing sadly against Willard's last earthly remains. Inside, the usual collection of tattered mementos, a hodge-podge of foreign currency and. . . but this cannot be! A familiar expression glides across Lara's face—an eyebrow raised by a wry and knowing smile. Before her, a telegram urging an immediate return to take possession of another artifact now secure beneath the Scottish mists at Willard's Loch Ness estate.

"The adventure continues," says Lara, to nothing but Willard's dark laughter still ringing in her ears. "So there was a fifth. . . ."
