I think I was on high security compund, but I forget. Haha! I haven't even played since the last time I posted. It was so frustrating and I'm pretty sure I have to do it all over again. Maybe eventually I'll get back to it.

OK - here is a progress report on Antarctica.

It's so long since I last did this level that I've pretty much forgotten the routes and the moves through it. I am seriously thinking of doing the level once to re-learn it and then re-doing it for the record.

One tip I can give you right away (Stella - you might like to consider this if you plan to update the walkthrough): to get the Desert Eagle clips from the water right at the beginning, don't go into the water from the level's start point. Instead, jump to the ice floe first, stand Lara at the mid point of the edge of the left section, line her up so that she's looking straight at the clips, then swan-dive (Walk+Jump+Forward). A couple of strokes will then put her right on top of them quickly.

LEVEL 4: CAVES OF KALIYA

Is anybody still reading this thread? Well, as for me, sorry that I dropped off. My schedule has changed, and it took me a while to get accustomed to it. TR3 is not one of those games that I'm addicted to, or else I probably would have found the time. However, everytime I considered playing it, I had to ask myself, "Do I feel like getting p***ed off now?" The answer was no until today.

This was a very short level for me. I don't do anything more than what I have to, so of course I took the shortcut. I kept getting lost and had to reload. One time I fell to my death when I went into the pit that leads to the lower level. One time I got crushed by the boulder.

I had a hard time with Tony, mainly because I could not get Lara to stop looking at him. Her doing so messed up my ability to turn her so she could jump to one of the side platforms. Out of desperation, I jumped onto the platform with Tony. I caught on fire the first time, but the second time I finished him off rather easily.

NEVADA PART 1: NEVADA DESERT

So far, I've liked this level. It is neat that she is in the States. Nothing has been frustratingly complicated. It is basic tombraiding--jumping and shooting pesky animals. The snakes are not that hard to spot, except that one that was behind the bush on a ledge. However, since I read the walkthrough, I knew to expect it.

@Stella--I did find the description for getting Secret #1 a tad confusing.

I died several times on the barbed wire.

The most startling thing was the planes zooming past.

Towards the end, I kept falling into the water. Had to reload several times.

I stopped at HEADING UPSTREAM. I'll continue from there today.

Hello everyone! Sorry I just disappeared randomly. TR3 annoyed me so much, I just quit playing. Plus school started a while ago. Once this thread finishes and if someone makes one for a game I can play, I'll rejoin.

@Caity--Sorry to lose you, but I understand.

NEVADA DESERT CONTINUED.

I fell so many times into the water and had to reload.

I thought Secret #3 was a snake. The second time I replayed this, I didn't trigger the snake that guarded it.

After subduing cranky guy, I forgot about the snake (the second time) in the bushes and got bit. They are becoming harder to see.

I drowned because I had a hard time finding the underwater levers. However, it was a neat death scene--Lara's body floating up.

After picking up the large medipack, and you are going to get the smaller one on the opposite ledge...I thought the medipack was on the ceiling. I was trying to figure out how I was going to get it when I realized it was a ledge.

Going back to the TNT cave, I fell into the river again. Had a hard time figuring out how to climb out of the pit--until I looked up. *DUH*

The noise of the electric fence was annoying. I wanted to see what it would look like to electrocute Lara, but I didn't have a save crystal. <_<

I got caught pulling the underwater levers and was unable to exit for a few seconds. I thought it was an invisible wall, but suddenly I was able to go through.

Taking that running jump over the fence--that is when I had to trust Stella that there was something to land on the other side.

What does anyone think of these guys that just beat up a person for no reason...just because I'm an unauthorized person in a secret military base.

I found stopping the quad bike nearly impossible except when I turned it sideways.

The last scene--that is definitely artistic license. Lara could not get up and walk away from that crash...at least not with her brains intact. I don't care how hard-headed she was.

Hey, everybody. Long time no type! :D

I've finally finished my TR2 and Golden Mask replays and am at last ready to move on to TR3! What has it been, like a year now? I know. I'm slooooow! :blush: If anyone is interested in picking up where they left off--or starting fresh with me--I'd love some company.

Hey, Stella! Hope you still remember me from a FB page where I posted photos of TR2, TR3 and TR4 while playing them. I didn't play TR since one year and I'm totally in. :) TR3 is my favourite game and I would love to play it again.

I'm currently playing it, and as long as there is no problem with me starting from where I am now, I'm in too! I am currently stuck in the South Pacific Levels in Madubu Gorge (not sure if I spelled it correctly). The kayaking seemed cool, but it was a pain. Still, I got through it. However, I can't seem to grab the stupid ceiling in the part after you kill the lizard and croc, but before the burners. I did it once, and I've never been able to do it again. I can't figure out what is wrong! It is such a stupid thing to get stuck on.

I'm playing on a Playstation, which is very frustrating because I can only save when I get a save crystal. I was just starting to really like this game, and now I'm stuck. The last time I was stuck, in the last level of Nevada, I was stuck an entire month! It would be nice if I could get one of the two save crystals while kayaking. I cannot figure out how you can get the one at the beginning of the kayaking level. I've almost gotten it, but not quite. Same thing with the save crystal at the big water fall. I swore I fell right on top of it, but I didn't get it...and I died for the trouble. :(

I don't know how much I'll be able to contribute if I can't get past this....

Yeah, the PlayStation version can really suck at some moment. When I had 3-4 years, my uncle played it on PS and i remember how he got mad when he couldn't save and start again from the last save. As far as I remember, the crystals are blue, aren't they? :) I finished the first level and I have some pictures, I'll post later. :)

Level 1: Jungle

Posted ImagePosted Image


So, the beginning. Ah, I have so much memories about the beginning of this level. First of all, I must say Tomb Raider III is the first TR game I have ever played and because of that is my favourite. I really adore this game, especially because most of the levels are outside levels, not in tombs, chambers etc., and I love the outside levels. Okay, so the beginning... I remember when I had 3 years that I always ran the game on the PlayStation and played this beginning, all the movements I made were shooting in blank and it was so fun for me then! I remmeber what joy was to hear the shoots and to know that I am shooting them (pictures above). :D It was really awesome.

So, now, I love this level and it’s interesting for me. First what I always do when I play it jump and slide down and then jump anf grab on the tree where is a monkey. I kill him, and then slide down where are a big medipack and a shotgun munition. I pick them and then jump on the tree where is a health crystal and munition. Then I slide down and arrive and go to the place where are pick-ups and waterfalls. Ah, I adore this view (picture down), it’s so beautiful. I actually adore those outside details in TR2 and TR3 because they don’t look so real, but still are something. :D I go back in the valley with one small medipack and a monkey sudden to death. This place is really awesome, especially if you use the corner bug and go to the trees. :)

Posted ImagePosted Image


I continue to the room which I opened and then pull the switch. Then I jumped on the window and continued. The upcoming part of the level is my favourite part. The forest where a tigar surprisly come is just wonderful, I adore the environment. :D

Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image


The rest of the level is really awesome and I love this level because of its environment and the most of the level is outside. It’s also the first level I have ever seen in TR games, so I am kinda emotional related with it. I always found 4 secrets, I know where is the one that I always miss, not, accidentaly, but I don’t know where is the other and I don’t mind. :)

Level 2: Temple Ruins

I don’t remember this level as a child, the first time I played it was 5 or 6 years ago. I don’t like it very much because most of isn’t outside. However, it’s interesting and has a marvelous environment. I don’t use medipacks always, but I am forced on this level because of poison of snakes and trapes.

Posted Image


I first kill the snakes at the begining of the level, and then pull the switch and follow the way to the jungle with river. I pull the switch and continue towards the big hill with monkeys. I really hate this part of the level, seems so dark and dead. It’s interesting if you use the corner bug and go to the top of the hill. :)

Posted Image


The next part is on those trees, marvelous. I didn’t want do pick up the pick-ups on the trees above the begining of the level. The waterfall is just amazing and the way it’s merged with the tree.

Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image


The enter to the temple is very dark and mysterious. I like the battle with those big black monstrums. :) I hate the ways to get the two keys which open the door, it’s really annoying for me, as the rest of the level. I like the big chamber where is a man killed in the center of it.

Posted Image



The cinematic at the end of the level is awesome! I adore the moment when Lara shoots at Tony and then she avoid those ruins. Really interesting cutscene.

I accidentaly deleted the progresses of all India levels, so I can't post them. :/

Yeah, the save crystals are blue.

I liked the stone statue with the swords. It reminds me of the scene in the first Tombraider movie. One thing that is good about TR3 is that you can cheat a little bit by using health packs. I wasn't able to ever get out of that switch room with the spiked ceiling fast enough, so I had to use a medipack to survive. You would think I would get very good at that part because I had to redo it so often. I died several times attempting it. Then even after I finished it, I died by drowning in the next part where you have to fight the underwater currents.

Well, folks. I am totally addicted to Lego Star Wars III at the moment and have abandoned TR3. If this thread is still active when I finish with that, then I'll continue to post. Sorry to ditch like this...but right now I feel like a Jedi...or maybe a Sith...than a Tombraider.

Yeah, even when I played now, I died twice in the room with spikes.

Well, I hope Stella will keep posting because I'm so keen on playing TR3 right now that I really enjoy this, but I need company. :/

Hello guys!
Its me Eldin with a new profile, I really can't remember my password or e-mail on my last one so I decided to create a new one.
I can still remember the good time on Lara Croft Online Forum, TR2 was a blast and that summer was really special to me, hanging out here and sharing our love for Tomb Raider and Lara was really fun.

I am very exited to do TR3, its been long since I last played it, but I am sure that I won't have big problems fitting in again. Hope to see you all soon. :)

E, super. Evo ja ću sada da postavim sledeći level koji sam prešao, pa ćeš bar ti da mi se pridružiš i da imam društvo. Pisao sam Steli na fejsu, igraće i ona verovatno. :)

Level 3: The River Ganges

Posted ImagePosted Image


Oh, this is another level which I know from childhood. I remember the save from the begining of the level. I always walked in the area around the bike and pick the pick-ups of the first secret. I never managed to ride bike across the river, I always fell into the water and died. But, it was really fun chilling around the waterfal for a four-years-old child. :D

Posted ImagePosted Image


Anyway, this level is really short for me. Since I’m not keen on finding all secrets of levels, I just ride the bike and finish the level quickly. I love riding level, but there are several bugs. My favourite part of the level is on the ending where you enter in the caves. That nature detail is just awesome.

Posted ImagePosted Image


I remember I had difficulties in manage some clifs with the bike, even now I die at least twice in this level. Anyway, I remember that I finished it in 11 minutes with no secrets and non-used medi-packs. :)

Level 4: Caves of Kaliya

Oh, this level. -.- I always found this level so annoying. :@ I never remember the path to the whole with the snakes and always wander in the caves like crazy. When I played it now, it took me like 18 minutes to find the way to Tony.

Posted ImagePosted Image


If you know the way, it’s very easy to finish the level in like, what, 5 minutes? :D I love the „boss fight“ at the end of the level, I’m really a fan of them because I adore killing and shooting.

Posted ImagePosted Image

I didn’t mention at the begining, but my favourite weapon are pistols. :) No, I’m lying, it’s uzis, but I can’t use them until London level ’cause I don’t look for secrets. :D I always look to pass the levels with pistols, I don’t often use any other weapon like shotgun etc. I really miss those automatic pistols from TR2, I like them, too

Posted Image

.
Anyway, I had several problems in killing Tony this time I played because I hadn’t done it for a long time. Anyway, my strategy is that when you slide down you shoot at him (picture above) as long as he shoots you with fire. Then going in circle across the room and shooting at him jumping from platform to platform (picture down). You can’t do it with shotgun, and with pistols, you could use just one, but, for me, it’s the best way in killing him.

Posted Image


When I kill him, I pick up the pick-ups (I don’t know why since in the second level in Nevada, you lose everything). The progress was 22 minutes, none secrets, none medi-packs. :)

Posted Image


I never really understood the storyline of any TR game. I remember that I wanted to do it last year when I replayed TR2 and TR3 without cheats for the first time in my life. I understood the TR2 storyline, but the TR3 not really. xD I got stuck on TR4 and I have in plans to replay all along TR6, and then again from begining.

Posted Image


My next destination after India is always Nevada, then South Pacific, and London at the end. I don’t know why, but I think it’s the best order. :)
