Tomb Raider shocked the gaming world with its wildly different third-person 3D adventure-platforming action. Developed by Core Design Ltd., converted to the Macintosh by Westlake Interactive and published by Aspyr Media, Inc., the Tomb Raider series has continued on utilizing the same elements that made the first game so successful.
Tomb Raider II's storyline once again follows the adventuring exploits of the beautiful archeologist Lara Croft. You, as Lara, will find yourself on a quest to find the ancient Dagger of Xian, reputed to posses the power of the dragon. Rumor has it that once plunged into the heart of the one who possesses it, the dagger will become powerful beyond imagination!.
But beware, Lara is not the only one in search of the dagger!
Tomb Raider II features 17 levels set on The Great Wall of China, the streets of Venice, the snowy fields of Tibet to a massive shipwreck laying on the bottom of the ocean. New weapons include a destructive Grenade Launcher and a Harpoon Gun as well as almost all weapons from the original. The enemy content is now mostly made up of humans taking away much of the originals atmosphere while the game still uses storyline presented through FMVs (full motion videos) at the end of each section of levels to enhance the game's atmosphere. ~ Tara Hernandez, All Game Guide
