Lara Croft returns in Tomb Raider III: Adventures of Lara Croft, an adventure game featuring nineteen levels set throughout India, London, Nevada, the South Pacific, and Antarctica. In her travels, Lara Croft will come across and battle hordes of enemies including monkeys, snakes, and even dinosaurs. Lara can deal with these creatures thanks to a range of weaponry, including dual pistols, a shotgun, grenades, a rocket launcher, a harpoon gun, and flares.
Tomb Raider III reveals the heroine in four different outfits that change depending on her mission, ranging from her usual attire to a new cat suit and winter jacket. Over the course of the game, players will have the option to control vehicles such as a quad bike, a kayak, a cart, and an underwater propulsion unit. Levels are less linear in this adventure and feature a total of fifty-nine secrets and a number of short cuts. To help you find all these things, Lara can now crawl, sprint, and perform monkey swings. The Croft mansion returns, with larger rooms, a shooting range and a personal gym.
Visually, the game takes advantage of 3D accelerator cards, allowing for advanced lighting and special effects as well as varied colors and textures. The aural experience has been changed and adds new walking and weapon effects. Keeping in the tradition of the series, however, the soundtrack is mostly silence with the occasional ambient tune. ~ All Game Guide
