I bought Tomb Raider 1 on PC yeeeeaaaars ago, and because i had xp, it didnt work well.
Then I bought this and was soo happy!
Lara's home is at its best in Tomb Raider 2, (TR 3 is boring) and the assault course is cool!
The wall of china level is a classic TR level, great for using all techniqques like diving, shooting, killing and so on.
The venice levels are great too, the first level is actually quite difficult, but dont be tempted to use a level cheat, i did and i regret it! The speed boat you can use in Venice is good to, and at the end of the first Venice level there is a neat peice of puzzzling to work out! The opera house level is very hard but also very good!
The next set of levels (offshore and underwater) may get slightly boring, but offshore rig is pretty cool, 40 fathoms introduces the sharks! and the wreck of the maria doria is sort of like Ghost Ship!
Tibetan Foothills is verry good level, but also very hard. You use the snow mobile for most of it, but I have done it ON FOOT which is a good expereicne.
The China levels are pretty good, floating islands is very strange, Dragon's Lair is the boss level.
But Temple of Xian has to be one of the best TR levels. It is so, well, tomb raider. Lots of spike traps, lots of guns, and lots of action! Home Sweet Home is the last level, surprisingly easy, and the final cut scene, Lara starts to get undressed, then goes to the camera "I think youve seen enough!" then shoots her shot gun!
