(This topic is posted in every forum as it is game specific)

(I keep finding newer and dumber ones. Give me a while!)

As in, a Lara maneuver you have done that:
* Causes you to look up and hope that nobody was watching your expression/primal screaming
* Left keyboard/controller impressions on your forehead
* Caused visions of going outside with a certain game disc and a sledge hammer, gasoline, a shovel and your least favorite sibling
* add your own...

If you mean in the game, this is one of them:

I landed Lara in between train cars and I got stuck there:(

Oh my, how did you get her to stay alive there? If my Lara does this, she dies.

As for the dumbest thing I have done in the game. Hmmm. I don't know if it is really dumb, but I have managed to get her leg between one of the scale things and the upper platform in Nepal and she was stuck. The scale didn't move, Lara didn't move, nothing worked any longer. I think that was the most unfortunate thing that I have done so far. :(

I landed (sort of) on top of the bridge once. It wasn't pretty.

I spend ages trying to get through the Lazers in Japan, only to discover (after I'd finished the game) that there was a much, much easier wasy of getting through...:o

Hmmm the dumbest thing I done? :confused:

Well it would have to be when Lara grabbed a ledge kind of squint, I had to quickly press the Y button - I didn't even press it and she still held on for dear life....kinda funny, I guess she just didn't want to die! :D
imo it was a bug though :(

Its happened a few times on the Xbox360 version :(

Being real cocky and making Lara jump through them blades inn Ghana. I missed the jump and got stuck and Lara was sliced and Diced:(

Serena

I spent about an hour trying to jump on, to, and from the chandelier in Arthur's tomb because I vaguely remembered someone saying you could jump on it and so thought that that was the way to progress.

I will never be swinging from the chandeliers again! ;)

In Ghana, I got through one of the blades traps at first try, and with only a tiny portion of my health gone. Then I thought, wow! Is it that easy, or did I just get lucky? And (idiot that I am), I RELOADED and tried it again – and found out, the hard way that I HAD been just lucky the first time. :hea:

Definitely a bang-my-head-against-the-wall moment.

SHOOTING AMANDA AND THEN REALIZING EXCALIBUR IS THE ONLY WAY TO KILL THAT...
*end spoiler*

Also, there is:
- Running through the coolant in Kazakhstan. :hea:
- Falling into ice water in Nepal. :hea: :hea:
- Crashing the forklift in England into a wall. :hea: :hea:
- Drowning in Lara's swimming pool. :hea: :hea: :hea:
- Being shot to death by the helicopter in Bolivia. :hea: :hea: :hea: :hea: :hea:
- Falling down to my death in Japan. :hea:

I went into that generator/(Tower?) in Kazakhstan. You know the one, of which you have to held the door open for the core to slide in. :cln: I only got "Lara, (you idiot!) what are you doing!" from Zip (just without 'the idiot' part) and then it all faded to black. :D

Lone Raider That wasn't very nice to say! Why are you writing about the game when you don't like it??? Don't waste your precious time!

I can understand what he's saying and I agree with him. Its better he write about it if he doesn't like it so CD actually try and improve the next game. I have also said what I dont like about the game before. He's disappointed with the game and its understandable. I'm also disappointed very with the game.

Some people just won't let it go...sell the game dude, if you don't like it...TRL is already going that direction with warm reception, unless you can reverse the trend yourself there is no point of complaining about how it differs from older games...a lot of things can be improved for TRL, but telling CD to throw out stuffs that worked and are standards within the video game industry is equal to tell CD jump off a bridge...

Anyway, back to topic, the dumbest thing I did was blow myself up with a grenade...I love grenade spam with infinite grenade launcher, but I always forget that there is a few second delay and I charged before all of them have time to explode...

You hope that there's one thread where nobody keeps bashing TRL because it didn't fit their image of a perfect TR game, but no…

- Waiting on the ground at the boss fight in Japan and just shooting at Takamoto… That got me killed quite fast
- Both after the cutscene before the fight in Bolivia I and after the cutscene where we see the monster eating Kent and you have to run away in Peru, I completely failed to realize that I had to do something different than just standing there.
- Reloading a save game several times and saving again until I realized that you can only save checkpoints

Lost_Raider, you reminded me. I kicked an explosive barrel. :p The fastest way to your last checkpoint, I would say. :D

Lost_Raider
30-05-06, 18:52
You did that too?!!! I did the same thing with the barrel in the Soviet Lab level...I thought since pistol can destroy it, so...

I am in the last section in Peru. I find the hidden ball that you roll through the wall. I follow out the busted out wall back to the floor and don't know what to do from there.
I keep going around in circles all over the place untill I figure out that 2 balls do fit on the pressure plate and the gold reward comes up.
I spent aboout 45 minutes in there.

I didn't land between the train cars....I didn't land on it either, I flew right over down the cliff. X.X
