I agree! I played it yesterday and Venice is exactly how I want it to be on TR2 Remake.

I don't hate the TRC, but it was done with the thighs so it was very buggy, besides the kilos of cutscenes that we can't skip . It is very stressful to have to see it every time we go to play, but apart from mistakes I really like russia, VCI, ireland which are new levels that we have never seen before. most of all '' ireland '' and my favorite for its ghastly and haunting atmosphere, especially on PS1, which is most frightening.

I can make a cutscene skipper if people are interested, just let me know which key you'd like to use to skip them :3
(I don't want to put too much effort into it though like make it customizable but a single key would be nice, and it should be something nobody uses as another game key.. maybe backspace?)

^ Would it be interesting, but how would you do it? If so, I suggest that the acceleration button is a "choosy" option to be comfortable for each player. In my serious case "c ". Although we have game shark on the ps1, the PC version would be a great idea.

this exe should skip cutscenes when you press the left ctrl key. don't skip cutscenes during the initial fade-in! only when the cutscene starts. enjoy.

Shout out to Trajan's Markets for having such a relaxing background score! It came up as a random track on my iPod and I really enjoyed hearing it again. Could almost hear Lara's grunts and gunshots, I could

I consider 4 to be the best in general, but its flawed because of its over the top length, repetitiveness (a side effect of the former) and too contrived levels. Sometimes it feels like work, but when it shines, its the greatest of the bunch. I also like "The Times" mini game/demo a lot.

So that leaves 5 as possibly my favorite, since it's the more polished of the classics and offers shorter, more varied levels. If you consider Chronicles as an expansion of Last Revelation (which it is, just like the Last Artifact is an expansion of TR3), then it becomes easier to give it a better review.

As you all know, if you let the game play in demo mode, there's one scene with Von Croy and its cronies, reinforcing the "expansion" nature of the game.

From Chronicles, I love the 3D floppy disks that function as save icons, the colorful GUI and varied, shorter levels that offer some of the most balanced challenge/enjoyment ratio of the series. Oh, and the sound is truly amazing
