That sense of height in the first part of Floating Islands is genuine and very well done.

Knowing that if you make a jumping/grab mistake at any point it is going to be fatal adds to the tension. I can well believe that those more sensitive to height triggers than others could have a real physical reaction to it.

Imagine doing it using first person VR - it could even cause a panic attack.

That eel I always forget about and even re-doing it recently, no scratch, I had actually forgotten again but, amazingly, I got away with it.

It certainly made my heart pump a little harder when it made the grab for LC and I love the fact it can still do that. The odd jump scare is just the sort of unexpected thing that makes me enjoy a level even more and that case is no exception.

Lol, yes that eel can make you near jump out of your skin if you aren't paying attention.

I beat TR2 on PlayStation when I was young, and years later I replayed it on PC and the eel literally made me jump out of my seat and scream. I had zero recollection of the giant eel in my original playthrough, was it only in the PC version?

I don't hate the water levels, but they drag out for far too long. They're very atmospheric tho

Venice levels are the best balance-wise and Barkhang Monastery and Temple of Xian are the best ones

Default Temple of Xian

Temple of Xian is the quintessential Tomb Raider experience.

The best level in Tomb Raider II and arguably the best single level in the original series (though I prefer Crash Site and Highland Fling, and the whole Alexandria hub of interconnected levels in Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation forms a superior experience).
