Most of the Prima Guides are worth buying to help out in completing the early Tomb Raider Games and this one is no exception. Useful tips and secrets revealed with each level explained clearly. The text is easy to read but don't expect high definition pictures as they are simply screenshots from a game that is 15 years old now. One big omission is Prima forget to number the screenshots for the order of gameplay but the text makes it pretty obvious which step is next.

If you want more detailed information such as alternate paths or cheats for all secrets or bugs in TR games worth knowing then checkout some of the online strategy sites (thanks Stella !)

I buy these books as it is very useful to have a manual when playing (only if stuck!) on PS1 rather than having to use the internet with a PC at the same time. For those of you who simply cannot complete a level even with guides due to difficult moves/jumps/timed runs then use cheats online to level skip (if available) or play the PC version of Tomb Raider 1 - 5 and download the save files from strategy sites.

Note: If you buy a used guidebook like this make sure it is in very good condition as my cheap 'good condition' copy had half the pages falling out. Ordered another.

I chose to rate this product at a 5 star, because it was exactly what I have been wanting since I first played the game. TRLR is particularly hard to complete because there are so many different routes you can take and so you miss certain important collectibles to progress further in the game. This item was perfect for helping me get through the game, by sending me down the right route.
I like that the book is detailed well and has some good screenshots so you know where you are going and where or what the book is telling you in the writing.
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who owns the game and knows how hard it can be to get through some of the more difficult levels.
Very pleased :)

Used to have this when i was younger back in 1999, but the pages felt apart, good walk through that helps you get stuck in the game-i.e the puzzles or traps. Would recommend to any one who is a fan of old school Tomb Raider like i am.

The game rules, there's no doubt about it. The official guide, however, has more holes than Ms Croft after she's been caught in one of those spike traps. Screwed up screenshots, unhelpful tips and more screw ups than your avergae litter bin.
However...
There are some aspects to this book which make it worth having... like the fact it tells yo where every single secret is, or why it's not a good idea to screw up those water puzzles in The Temple Of Horus.
Conclusion? If you're fairly experienced then go for it. If you're a newbie, check out an online guide, that'll be much more helpful, and no doubt there will be other people you can ask for help.
