After the success of the first game, there was no doubt that there was obviously going to be a sequel to the first Tomb Raider. So, in 1997, Core answered everybodies prayers by releasing an allbeit well anticipated sequel. So, what had Core done to improve the features of the game? Well, they had added new gameplay elements like the ability to climb ladders and the chance to ride on vehicles, such as a speedboat in Venice and a snowmobile in the snowy Tibetan mountains, and of course some much improved graphics. Also, there were lots of new accessories, such as flares, and tons of new weapons. As well as your standard Pistols, Shotgun, and Uzis (shame the Magnums weren't in it!) you also had some Automatic Pistols, an M16,a Harpoon Gun, and a Grenade Launcher. No, you didn't mishear, a GRENADE LAUNCHER! So now,when you get it, you can blow up thugs, gangsters, dogs, and even floating warriors!
Now, the levels are as follows: The Great Wall, Venice, Bartoli's Hideout, Opera House, Offshore Rig, Diving Area.
40 Fathoms, Wreck of the Maria Doria, Living Quarters, The Deck, Tibetan Foothills, Barkhang Monastery, Catacombs of the Talion, The Ice Palace, Temple of Xian, Floating Islands, The Dragons Lair, and...Home Sweet Home.
So now you're thinking: this guy sounds like he likes this game a lot, so why has he only given it 4 stars? Well, the fact is i do but i just don't think the storyline was as gripping as the original, even though it was more adventurous than the first. That being said, the story is still a blast and ranks as my second favourite Tomb Raider...Ever.
So go ahead and buy Tomb Raider 2, the only game where you can blow up a T-Rex with a Grenade Launcher!
