I'm guessing the stars are the choices if people don't like the levels.

I've been wondering why Venice is so popular, it occurs to me that it's the only level where you get to use the speedboat (apart from a tiny bit at the start of Bartoli's hideout) and you also get to do the James bond style jump with it too which is fun, and of course the run against the clock.

However Venice stopped being unique for me in those ways after I added the speedboat to the Croft Manor level which enabled me to do a similar Bond-style jump over the swimming pool roof and a timed run of the assault course in the boat!

I like Venice for the ambience... the quiet canal-side exploration of what are supposed to be ornately decorated buildings. Not the boat really. This is definitely a level I think would benefit from being redone / reimagined in full modern day graphical glory.

1 from each section:

- Temple of Xian

And out of these: Barkhang Monastery

I'm not sure why 40 fathoms has been grouped with the rig levels in this poll, logically it is one of the wreck levels. (I note that Stella's guide lists rig+wreck levels as one long section but I would disagree as there is a cutscene separating them.)

I consider offshore rig through the deck to be water levels.

I chose as my three.....

1.Offshore Rig
2.Bartoli's Hideout
3.The Opera House


I like all the levels really, perhaps Floating Islands is the one i'm not so keen on for it's weirdness, but i can see why people might like that about it. Offshore rig is my favorite level. Loved the levels atmosphere with the echo of metal & labor in the background, starting with no weapons, the cut scenes for it are neat & it starts & finishes interestingly.

I love the Opera House; something about that short section at the beginning where you can see Venice at night, and then breaking into the Opera House itself always felt really cool to me. It really felt like the adventure was just starting to pick up for me.

Runners-up for me would be the Wreck of the Maria Doria or the Floating Islands. I love the creepy dark levels.
