View Full Version : Do I have 'The Lost Artifact' or the Standard Tr3?

Might seem like a daft question but...
...I've bought TR3 Lost Artifact from a reputable software seller on ebay, and the game has arrived which is different to that on the auction. I've played it, and it looks no different to the original TR3 - should there be a mention of 'the lost artifact' during either gameplay or startup, or would installation of the game tell me whether it is indeed the lost artifact or the original?
Thanks,
Will

The Lost Artifact does not have he same levels as TR3 at all. In the setup, I'm pretty sure that it says the lost artifact in it.

Hello,
I was lead to believe the Lost Artifact was the original game plus five extra levels.

It is, but the extra levels come on a seperate, 2nd disk. It's like a seperate game almost, it's just the story that links them.

And infact all your disks should say: "TOMB RAIDER III the lost artifact".

What edition is your game? Is there a scan of the box available? Perhaps the link to the original ebay page??

"The Lost Artifact" begins with the Highland Fling level. The very first scene is a helicopter bringing Lara to the gates of Williard's castle, when the scene ends, Lara is standing in front of the gates, and the gameplay begins. If your game begins differently, you aren't playing The Lost Artifact.

If I remember correctly, TRIII and the The Lost Artifact was available as a package deal. Maybe this is what you have?
