Too many enemies, not at all, because fighting tactics came into play.

What was interesting about all these human enemies and animals, etc, that Lara had to fight, was that you had to learn all the best ways and different ways of beating them. Back flip shooting, side to side uzi jump shooting, long range shooting, sneaky shooting, and all the other fighting method.

Sometimes it was quicker and less messy just to run by them, knowing that she would be out of their range soon enough, run away, run away

You soon learned the 'run and jump' method to move quicker LOL.
(the days before TR4's fast run button)....

Go to 2.18.

Judith just such a lovely woman. I wish there was more interviews with her.

Tomb Raider II is like the perfect classic to me. It hit a perfect balance in almost aspects. The difficulty, the complexity, the level design, the innovation. The only thing that one can say is the overabundance of enemies, but honestly, considering how powerful some of Lara's weapons are, I think it's fine.

Literally if someone told me to describe TRII in 1 word, it would be "Fun", and that's what every video game should aspire to be.

I would love a modern version of TR2.

In one word ....'Re-playable'

I cannot help returning to it every year and play some of my favorit levels.

That's the sign of a good video game

Tomb Raider 2 its perfect game! TR2 has beautiful, atmospheric, difficult and really good architecture levels. It's a most nostalgic and most played TR for me Sounds in this game are masterpiece and they are some vintage. In my opinion count of enemies is perfect. Not too many and not too little enemies.

Out of all the games in my collection, TRII is the game I go back to most frequently. I have the original CD, a Steam version and a GOG version, all of which I picked up in sales just to keep for the collection.
If I were to end up on a desert island, I'd take this game with me, to while away the evenings.

For me it's special because:

- Nostalgia (it was the 1st TR game I played)
- Diversity of locations (the latest reboot games are boring due to lack of this).
- Puzzles and platforming is almost ideal for me (true for almost all classical TR games).

The game's atmosphere and level design are just great.
Plus the main theme is my personal favorite of the classic trilogy, it just makes you feel like getting ready for adventure

This theme is so special. Magical even.

The nostalgia is utterly strong with this one... it's like I travel back in time for a few minutes. Takes me back to happy summer days as a kid and I can't explain why.
