When you THINK the sunken ship levels on TRII are almost over and you've finally reached The Deck, you're actually now on Living Quarters and Tibet is still 2 levels out of reach...

^ The Deck is my favorite level in the whole game, next to Opera House, Barkhang monastery and Tenple of Xian.

Canít stand Tibetan foothills though. I was so glad when that level was over.

The ship levels are awesome and I'm surprised they're unpopular among the fanbase, but I agree the Tibet levels are even better.

TR2's pacing is everything. It's a slow-burner, it starts out ok and gets better and better the deeper into it you go.

I don't care for the Oil Rig levels, that's probably the low point of the game. I don't think they're horribly bad either but they're just ugly and kind of pointless filler. We could have (and probably would if the game was made today) had a lengthy cutscene covering everything from Lara's capture in the plane to her dive and just skip the levels out. I would not complain if they remade the game and did this, I think I speak for most people on that.

I'd get rid of Oil Rig lvls and Living Quarters. Also, mix the beginning of 40 Fathoms and the Wreck. We should have had another location or expanded China.

They're 6 levels heavily relying on water in a row. Very bad decision.

^He is so good at doing these. I don't think I've seen one I don't like.

OMG look at that ! He almost wants me to replay Underneath the Sphinx... and it's imo the worst level of TR4 !

EDIT : TR2 is perfect I didn't even want to get rid of Oil Rigs, I like those levels.
My least favourite is Home Sweet Home I guess. I like how they surprised us with this welcomed last level, but it was the least interesting.

I was just watching a let's play of AOD, and I honestly forgot all about the mutant fish. That thing still terrifies me.

It's great to see that you guys generally understand, I'd be happier without the oil rig levels too.

Wow at those isometric levels, imagine them as actual statuettes one could buy!
