Your personal level constitution goes much more in detail, but I don't think it's gonna make a difference.

The official list is fine as it is

I prefer your personal list, Chamayoo. I think those places should be split because they're different levels within the main areas.

A challenge you love to play non-stop because you're a Rebooter.

I will give you the link to the first poll next saturday : June 22nd.
If we follow the "official" walkthrough, the last poll will be open July 27th
But if you prefer my personal rendition (I need your opinions to chose correctly), the last poll will be open August 10th.

Then I think I will wait one month to let you vote a bit more and reveal the results. It will be around the first anniversary of the game !

The official level constitution :

Level 1. Cozumel
Level 2. Peruvian Jungle
Level 3. Lara's Dream
Level 4. Kuwaq Yaku
Level 5. Trial of the Eagle
Level 6. The Hidden City (Paititi)
Level 7. Belly of the Serpent
Level 8. Mountain Temple
Level 9. Cenote
Level 10. Riverbed / Porvenir Oil Fields
Level 11. Mission of San Juan
Level 12. City of the Serpent

OR

The personal level constitution :

I seperate the hubs from the story missions. They are in green, hope you will recognise the events or we will modify this together.
I change the name of Trial of the Eagle to Path of the Trials to assemble all that happened between Kuwaq Yaku and Paititi.

Level 1. Cozumel
Level 2. Peruvian Jungle
Level 3. Lara's Dream
Level 4. Kuwaq Yaku (hub)
Level 5. Temple of the Living
Level 6. Path of the Trials
Level 7. Paititi (hub)
Level 8. Belly of the Serpent
Level 9. Mountain Temple
Level 10. Cenote
Level 11. The Rescue
Level 12. Porvenir Oil Fields
Level 13. Mission of San Juan (hub)
Level 14. Library's Crypt
Level 15. Volcanic Eruption

Level 16. City of the Serpent


A rule to deal with :
It is forbiden to put abusive ratings. For instance, I will not accept 3 or more successive 1/10 or 10/10. The fun is to rate the levels with honesty, not to brings the game down or up. If really I witness this, I need an explanation or it will not be count in the final results.

You are perfectly allowed to share your ratings and why not short reviews for each levels. However the results will be secret until the reveal.
Cool idea, okay here goes, (1-10) 10 being an absolute fun and a blast!

Level 1. Cozumel (8)
Level 2. Peruvian Jungle (10)
Level 3. Lara's Dream (7)
Level 4. Kuwaq Yaku (hub) (4)
Level 5. Temple of the Living (2)
Level 6. Path of the Trials (8)
Level 7. Paititi (hub) (4)
Level 8. Belly of the Serpent (6)
Level 9. Mountain Temple (7)
Level 10. Cenote (9)
Level 11. The Rescue (3)
Level 12. Porvenir Oil Fields (9)
Level 13. Mission of San Juan (hub) (10)
Level 14. Library's Crypt (9)
Level 15. Volcanic Eruption (5)
Level 16. City of the Serpent (6)

I'm curious why you rate "Temple of the Living" only 2/10, Heisenberg !

By the way I don't really explain what this section is. It's right after you enter the temple of Kuwak Yaku, you jump in the water, you fight/infiltrate Trinity's men (a lot) and in the middle of that you have the temple in fire (Temple of the Living) with the numbers puzzle. Also the first aquatic section with piranhas is included.

It seems it divided everyone about how we should cut the game... I will wait again some new opinions.

I'm not sure I can do this properly as I'm not always sure what the different "levels" are in some places. It all kind of runs in together in places in my mind.

Level 1. Cozumel - yeah a pretty decent slow intro with a good atmosphere (8)
Level 2. Peruvian Jungle - I quite liked this bit, with the lovely jungle (8)
Level 3. Lara's Dream - Is this the Croft Manor bit? I liked this a lot. (9)
Level 4. Kuwaq Yaku (hub) - Ok and appropriate, but not inspiring. (6)
Level 5. Temple of the Living
Level 6. Path of the Trials - I remember enjoying these, the turning maze was nicely complex and the then the trial with grappling in the air was tricky too. (7)
Level 7. Paititi (hub) - This is nicely designed and quite a technical achievement. However, I do think it could have been utilised better..... (7)
Level 8. Belly of the Serpent - .... can't remember what this is. I think it's probably just in Paititi somewhere in my mind.
Level 9. Mountain Temple - This was ok, not special but not awful either. (6)
Level 10. Cenote - Pretty scary on first go through. Very good for what it is meant to be and some decent climbing out afterwards. (8)
Level 11. The Rescue - Another one that I think is ok but nothing amazing. (6)
Level 12. Porvenir Oil Fields - I liked some of the stealthy bits here. (7)
Level 13. Mission of San Juan (hub) - A nice bright area that feels peaceful (8)
Level 14. Library's Crypt - A nice puzzling section (7)
Level 15. Volcanic Eruption -
Level 16. City of the Serpent - I liked the interaction between Crimson Fire and Lara a lot (8)

Level 1. Cozumel (7/10) - narratively a promising start, I do wish it was less linear though, more similar to later puzzle segments
Level 2. Peruvian Jungle (7/10) - not much to say, other than it's a very enjoyable introduction to the game proper
Level 3. Lara's Dream (8/10) - fan service, gotta love it
Level 4. Kuwaq Yaku (7/10) - again, enjoyable section as a whole, nothing earth-shattering though
Level 5. Trial of the Eagle (8/10) - more of this in the future, please and thanks
Level 6. The Hidden City (6/10) - a great idea but with poor execution, I think if the pacing had been different it would've worked better
Level 7. Belly of the Serpent (see Cenote score, I count them as one )
Level 8. Mountain Temple (see Cenote score)
Level 9. Cenote (9/10) - just excellent
Level 10. Riverbed / Porvenir Oil Fields (7/10) - cool as an intermission, but not my fave part of the game
Level 11. Mission of San Juan (10/10) - this is the best section of the game, hands down, showing the potential of using social hub spaces in future games
Level 12. City of the Serpent (6/10) - unfortunately, this was pretty forgettable, outside of Lara physically manifesting a goddess

This is the part where all is dark with a lot of corpses and the puzzle with the blood and the oil. Lara was looking after the silver serpent.

Mountain Temple :
The section you have to cross to reach the Cenote. You're inside the mountain infiltrating Kulkulkan's goons.

I updated my post to reflect those areas.
