Lud's Gate is a weak level in comparison to others, but it's not that bad as some claim.

The boiler room shenanigan was terrible, the UV's controls were terrible too, all those enemies under the water with so little ammo for the harpoon gun... ugh, but that's about it. The underwater maze is confusing at first, but I find it interesting. I think this level is better at replay than the 1st time you play it.

Although I wish we saw more of the actual museum as in TRAOD's Louvre, the Sphynx room felt so big for what it actually was.

I beat it the other day without using the UV bc I cannot stand the controls. I didn't remember the passage where you can let Lara get some air is flooded once you finish in the Boiler Room, there's no possibility to breathe. So I had to waste a lot of medipacks on that lol, but I managed to survive and dodge the enemies. It was stressful and I think a bad decision to raise difficulty on an already consufing level, but ngl I felt very satisfied when I pulled it through

Iíve actually never beat Luds Gate correctly On replays I would just use the flying UPV trick to get to the end. Itís impossible to see underwater on the PS1. Since 1999 I still have no clue how to beat it the intended way.

Wimps

Try it on a minimal damage run/pistols only/all secrets if you want really hard. The museum gunmen after getting the serum, now that was tough to get through undamaged.

With patience and practice this game can be mastered, but rest assured, their are times when it can still break you, Madubu Gorge and Lud's Gate are those type of levels which are some of the hardest in the series, but this masterpiece is still very much loved and still outshines the recent releases from Crystal Dynamics 'don't get me wrong' they did a great job, but this entry is so well designed, with beautiful atmosphere and the nostalgia it delivers will always make me smile, pure class.

I've been replaying India this week too, the River Ganges most recently. It oozes atmosphere and a lot of that is indeed down to the music and ambient sounds.

I've been playing the game (currently on RX Tech Mines) and does anyone else just really hate South Pacific???

Nasty traps, questionable depictions of Melanesian people (although it was the 90s I guess), no charm to the levels...

Saying that, I think Nevada might be my favourite location in the first 3 games. Amazing music, scenery, tense, atmospheric!

That's a wrong opinion you have there.

I think all the locations have their own charm, but I personally like London the least.
