I am also interested in how they will remake that crazy monster, but I am interested more so in the enemies from the Egyptian levels!!! They made me jump and scream in fright on the PS1, I can't wait to see them on the PS2!!

That guy sounds and looks creepy but ya, I agree in a way that he's one of the most memoriable bosses of Tomb Raider (perhaps Natla too..she's re-incarnated, correct me if I'm wrong, from the past Natla - actually, anyone willing to explain to me about the Natla(s) )

Natla was one of the three rulers of Atlantis (the other two being Qualopec and Tihocan) who each shared a piece of an artifact called the Scion. Natla believed Atlantis was falling behind, and decided to use the Scion's powers to advance the continant once more. By doing this, she decided to speed the course of evolution and breed an army of skinless mutants so she can continue strengthen and advance Atlantis with her territorial rages again. Eventually Tihocan and Qualopec imprisoned her for waging war on them and abusing her powers, and shortly thereafter Atlantis was left in ruins with the 3 pieces scattered across the earth.

Sometime in the present, a nuclear blast unearths Natla's frozen prison which she escapes. After founding the company Natla Technologies and going under the name of Jacqueline Natla, she hires Lara to find the piece in Peru. As soon as Lara recovered the piece, Natla sent her henchman Larson to kill her, but failed. Lara manages to track and recover the other two pieces in Greece and Egypt, but the reformed artifact is taken from her by Natla and her men. Lara tracks down Natla on her boat and sneaks aboard as it leaves for the ruins of Atlantis.

Inside the Great Pyramid of Atlantis, Natla uses the Scion to continues where she left off by breeding her mutant freaks. Lara ends up finding her in the Scion chamber and attempts to destroy the artifact after Natla unveils her grand plan and introduces Lara to her King Beast. Before she can shoot it, Natla dives at her sending both of them off the ledge. Lara manages to grab a nearby platform, but Natla falls in the lava pit below and is presummed dead. After Lara kills the huge mutant beast and destroys the Scion, Natla returns with a pair of wings and an Atlanteon bomb launcher. Lara shoots her down in her winged form, but Natla rises again on foot only to be killed once and for all.

Hope that helps.

Nicely done synopsis Mr. X. (Can you do TR2 for me? JK)


The bacon mummies were real creepy when they were just skulking around. Their groans were just spooky. I always play with headphones on so some of the noises in games sound closer in spacial relativity.....so you never really know where one might be.

Uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuengh.................UUUUUuuuuuu uuuuuuuuuunghhhhhhhhh

I just got goosebumps. (LOL)

When they attacked their screeches induced sheer panic. Which way do I fire? Which one do I fire AT? Why are they going so dang fast? Why do I feel like a Denny's Grand Slam Breakfast?

Default Do you think there will be anymore bosses than the original!?

Good Gods, I hope not. I want to have lots of fun 'Raiding, not running around in circles trying to defeat a boss...

Yup, the beginning cutscene is in Los Alamos, New Mexico! Inside the crater is the tomb or capsule of Jaquline Natla, that the other Two encase her in.(See the Cutscene between Tomb of Tihocan and City of Kamroon)

My only question how did she end up in New Mexico the middle of nowhere. I think Lara should go there some time! Los Alamos Labs, or the nuclear weapons in the mountains!
