The centaurs can be very tricky. Take a look at this thread, which has some useful tips: Official boss fights help thread

There are two ways you can cheat, if you get fed up.

The first is get a PC savepoint off the internet for the next level, as you are so near the end of this level, all you get after killing the two centaurs is a short cutscene.

http://tombraiders.net/stella/savega...s.html#trasave

The second cheating method if I can remember is.... to run out and dive off the edge of the pool swim quickly, down and down, dodging blasts from the centaurs and enter the underwater tunnel and throw the switch in the dry cave below, stay there for a while (how long ?) and one centaur gets killed by the other, so you are down to one nasty left.

This is where I forget how to get rid of the last one when you surface, other than fight it ... I have so forgotten this cheat, DOH !

I remember spending some time trying to figure out how to kill the centaurs too. I found the difficulty of the game to be well balanced. Legend was much easier.

LOL But one will be much easier to kill on it's own. I managed to kill them after many days of frustrated trying and watching videos but it's all to much to remember at once. On the replay I just couldn't do it, so I used a savegame to go past them. It's very hard and if the planets aren't aligned favourably then you don't stand a chance

Some of us still cannot do, or be consistent with, the dreaded ADRENALINE DODGE

The worst move ever thought up on TR

Maybe on pc, but on console its rather easy. Imo the adrenaline dodge was a great gameplay mechanic to be introduced into combat!

This kind of remark is the most unhelpful thing a person could state, and borders on spam. Maybe you found the game easy. But not everyone does. Maybe it's their first TR, or ever first video game ever, or they just have trouble with the controls (which are quite fiddly as it is). If you can't post anything helpful, please don't post at all. (This is directed not just at _KC_, but at everyone who makes similar remarks.)

I couldn't remember either but Stella refreshed my memory.

After resurfacing and locking on to the other centaur (without getting fried ) you can return to the cave and it will commit slooow suicide.

For me it was around 15 minutes for the first and at least a half hour for the second.
