Hi I'm new to this forum and as a huge tomb raider fan I was just wondering which moment in the tomb raider games everyone found scariest?

Mine would have to be hearing the booming footsteps in the Lost Valley and seeing the T-Rex coming around the corner toward me.

:eek:

You know 8 years ago i thought the t-rex was the scariest thing i had ever seen and the hardest boss in tomb raider...

I played again recenty and well i was dissappointed about how easy it was... i took it down with the pistols alone... i didnt even need the shotgun... i didnt even find it lol.... and then the beast in atlantis*i think* without legs the one thats uses its hands to move about - not that hard i killed in about 4 minuets. with uzis it took 600-650 shots to kill i figured out how to really make the fight easy. When it gets close tap back off the ledge and hold onto the edge until he moves away then pull up and unload on him - you should only have to do once or twice. I expected more it sure looks tougher.

I will say natla was harder than i remember hmmm thats probably cause i pooped my pants at eight years old an quit at the t-rex lol.....

Maybe it seems easier because im braver :)
but now i can also say



tomb raider 1 is the BEST!!!

i have ot adit i've never really foudn any TR scary (VG's in gneral except for very scary survival Horros like Resi 4, Eternal Darkness, Forbiden Siren etc) but the scene which left the strongest impression?

there are two, one in TR1 with the T-Rex just remebering how stunning that was way back in the day is amazing :)

and in TR2 The first Shark at the start of the maria dora levels :)

ah ahaha ahahahah i laughed at loud for real when i read that

scariest TR moment?! where do i begin?!?!?!

1. TR1 T-rex
2. TR1 Colisseum entrance when the lion jumps out/when any animal in the entire game pops out
3. TR3 Temple Ruins, the second room in the temple where the statue comes alive... yipe!
4. TR3 Crash site with the raptors, especially in the darkened room where you flip all the switches to get to the room above where the dead guy is and you steal his keys.......
5. TR3 Aldwych... basically the entire level makes me need some morphine... i still haven't gotten past the part with the subway tracks... yeesh, scary...
6. Lud's Gate when you are underwater with the scuba thing and those guys chase you
7. TR4 the motorcycle levels/dark levels/indoor levels
8. TR Chronicles Black Isle part 1
9. TR Chronicles Russian Sub when it is sinking

there are plenty more where that came from! can't think of a scariest!:lmao:

One level that doesn't get much play because it's a PC add on is TR3's Gold Level---the Lost Artifact. It's very creepy when you get inside. Bodies of things hanging around.

But the TRex still sends my blood racing. And when all the Atlantean mutants charge you in the room where you meet the doppleganger. I always have the strategy to run right and crawl up the platform quick and I'm always too freaked to do it properly.

Welcome into the very calm forum~ :cool:
More horror scean was... booming footspets coming from the DARK
in "Gread Wall" in TR_02 when we found last screat area. :nut:
And sudden comming-up skull scean was also horror at Indonesai in TR_03.
But very important horror facts were thing is back-music in TR serise...
There is no any horror but a certain mysterious back-music comming...
And very high HEIGHT was the real horror in TR. hmmm...
These are also horror facts in TR. hehe~ :nut:



8. TR Chronicles Black Isle part 1
9. TR Chronicles Russian Sub when it is sinking

I think there was no any horror. Rather hagn-man(?) calling
sound was horror in Part of "Little-Lara" come child~ comming closer~ :eek:
That's very good job of EIDOS. So I like this TR_05.
Back musics & effect sounds in this "Little Lara" also
very good for feeling horror. It was very good job.

You know, I'd totally forgotten about the demon babies until you mentioned them. No sleep for me tonight!

Joshorty
14th Mar 2007, 20:46
Yeah I totally forgot about that part of the game. It was honestly freaky. I'm following the light feeling safe and scared at the same time while this monster is at my back:eek: ! The music too..

I thought the cutscene right around there where young Lara has the vision of the decomposing guy hanging from a tree asking Lara to find his heart was pretty scary.

Joshorty
14th Mar 2007, 22:10
That part too..though now I'm not that scared for some reason..

other then that, I'm playing the beginning of Sanctuary of the Scion right now...MAN I HATE THIS PART:eek: !!

EDIT:
And I can't believe I killed them without suffering a lot of damage..I was using Pistols too:eek:

Thanks for the opinions guys. I guess that's why I love Tomb Raider so much. Half the challenge is playing the game and the other half is overcoming my fear of what's lurking around the next corner waiting to jump out!

:eek:

Lol:D I used to be the same. Any area I'm standing in (TOMB RAIDER 1~5), I'd always be SCARED. There's no sense of security and stuff lol it was like a horror game to me.

LOL, funniest thread!

I'dsay the rex too...

But in fact, my first videogame ever was TR 2. It's a little blurred in my mind.. I had rented it... and then I was in some sort of gravel pit with a tiger after me and I had not made the training...so I ran and jumped in every corners...shooting and shooting until I got it... and then it was peacefull, VERY peacefull... And then I looked everywhere... and everywhere...and everywhere
and I never found the way out of this damn gravel pit that night! And I told to myself I hate that stupid videogame and I will never play again and I gave it back to the store...and and I felt so stupid about me that THIS was my MOST FRIGHTENING TIME of Tomb Raider :lol: A week later, I rented it again... and this time I found the way out and it was pure delight and MAGIC ...! Just couldn'nt stop playing... and then I rented TR 1... and then I bought all of them... and I preordered TRA!:)

I think mine would have to be either the bigger mutants in Tomb Raider 3 in the antarctica levels, especially when you're in the dark and therefore can't see them coming. :eek: I also dislike the mutants in AOD; the ones trotting around in the sanitarium. The way they move just freaks me out. I guess I'm not much of a muntant fan.

Scariest moment; listening to the voice acting.

i think that TR1 had the best sense of suspense with the background music coming in at the right times. the other games in the series didn't seem to have that effect.

Really? I thought TR3's sound effects/music really made the feel for the game. I would always turn around and grab a ledge before I fell to set off any traps... it worked a lot, lol.

Right now I am playing through TR3 and I am at Caves of Kalayas(spelling?) and the cave music is on... I got through the maze and am about to go into the first save crystal room but I am afraid to... lol, I am pathetic

U guys are all too caught up in the past! I'm thinking more TR 7 for my scariest moment. WHICH would have to be:

When in the flashback at Paraiso young Lara is talking to kent and then the monster kills him with blood flying...and later when you have to run from the monster.
Also the size of the snake at King Arthur's tomb had me panicking.
The Nephilim from Angel of Darkness...god I dropped the controller like 37 times cause I was like panicking beyond control.
Oh and when


You find out that the thing Lara's mother was talking to through the gate before she dissapeared to Avalon was Lara herself from the future...and that Amanda made Lady Croft pull the sword....and then little Lara was left with a 10 day trek to civilization and her mother gone in Avalon forever.

Your spoiler is more revealing than you realize, 1lovelamol. Are we talking about the same game? ;)

i hate to nit pick, but since this is a huge fansite/forum specifically for a certain game... her name is spelled Lara. ****

17th Mar 2007, 23:40
Oh really guys, I make one spelling mistake and you jump on me. :( For your info I HAVE played through TR 1 (dont remember much) , TR 2 (same) , TR 3 (pales in comparison to legend. in fact, all of them do.), TR Last Revelation (that was sad) TR Chronicles (loved it despite the rating) TR Angel of Darkness ( I was obssesed with the "murderer Lara" for a while) TR Legend (a couple times, the graphics are amazing in nepal) and am impatiently awaiting TR Anniversary.

As for the spoiler, the site did that. All I typed was [ spoiler ] ... [ / spoiler] (without the spaces)

lara lara lara lara croft lara Lara LARA LARA LARA LARA!!! happy? :D

Oh really guys, I make one spelling mistake and you jump on me.

LOL Actually you made three mistakes, 1lovelmao, and you corrected two of them but one still remains!


As for the spoiler, the site did that. All I typed was [ spoiler ] ... [ / spoiler]

...along with three incorrect spellings of the main character.

In spite of this atrocity, I would be remis in my duties if I didn't welcome you to the forum, so welcome to the forum, 1lovelmao. :)

scariest moment for me was the mutants in the sanatorium, brother obscura coming towards me after the cutscene in hall of seasons, the serpent rising out of the water in tr7, the t-rex, the bacon creatures, the mutants in the bio research facility, the part in bartolis hideout, when you break the windows and kill the d-ogs and then turn to see the blade trap, and last but not least, the basment of doom in the hallof seasons level.:eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek:

When I play AOD over and get to the part where you play as Kurtis, I stop. I REFUSE to play the sanitarium. It really scares me. I also got scared in TR3 Area 51 in the Alien room... yipe!

24th Mar 2007, 19:28
holy crap, lol. was that atlantis? My sister and I never finished TR1, we got too scared. :lol:

another scary one for me was just relived as I played TR3...

The Crash Site level (the one with the T-Rex and raptors)
after you shoot that hanging raptor so the stupid pirannah leave you alone, you cross the river and get into the dark room with 3 levers... and like, 50 raptors come out! WAAAH! And when you get to the room above, there is a dead guy... (Lt. Tuckerman?) YIKES!!!!!
