Default Is it considered cheating/unfair if you use walktrough?

Or does it depend on how much you use?

What if you use it all the time?

Yes. Because you aren't solving the game.

However, there's nothing wrong with that. A game is meant to be enjoyed, if using a walkthrough when you get stuck (or indeed, actual cheats and bugs to get items and see areas you aren't supposed to) helps you enjoy the game then that is the way you should play it.

You should always play in a manner where you enjoy it as much as possible.

I tend to use cheats after I've already beaten the game, just for fun. But I never use them when I'm going through an 'official' playthrough. It just takes away that rewarding feeling completely.

Using a walkthrough is something else entirely. I use them quite often, because if I really don't understand where to go or what to do then it quickly drains away the fun. I only use them when necessary though.

When it comes to TR4, no it's not cheating to use a walkthrough. It's one TR game I couldn't beat without a walkthrough

Awe. Thank you!! Yes! And I agree with the cheating. For weapons etc. I can see myself cheating when I replay it. I did cheat before but its my first time not cheating. I did not cheat with tomb 6 and after. And when I was a child. I didnt cheat in tr2. Some kid told me some codes but I did not believe it was possible. We did those codes wrong and was possible. Haha!

I don't think its cheating, sometimes you just need it if you're going for all items and stuff, nothing wrong with that

Yes...? I hesitate to use the term “cheating”, because that sounds a bit worse than it actually is. It’s technically cheating, but I don’t think it’s as big of a deal as skipping a level or getting all weapons, for example.

Like others, I would just say that you should do whatever makes you enjoy the game the most. If that’s frequently using the assistance of a walkthrough, go for it. If it’s getting stuck and trying to solve it completely on your own, with maybe a little (or no) help from a walkthrough, then do that.

We finished a level without looking once just now so I don't count it as cheating lol

I wouldn't say that using walkthrough to complete Tomb Raider II is cheating or unfair. It is just your attitude to gaming. But, personally, I perceive every game as a challenge and I try to use walkthroughs as rarely as it is possible, but sometimes it is not possible not to use it.
