Tomb Raider: Anniversary Strategy Guide

Level 3: The Lost Valley

Pick up cog number one in the first area you enter, next to the water. Then climb the ladder. Go to the pole sticking out to the right of the lever and put the cog on the end of it. Pull the lever. Jump to the first moving pole, then over to the next and across to the ladder.

Jump on the handhold to right of next lever. Shimmy right, jump the gap and up and back on the platform. Jump diagonally to the wall ledge, then to the higher ledge and back to the rope. Rotate and jump to the ledge on the far wall. Shimmy along and drop down. Enter the cave by ducking the stone.

Climb the rocks, then shimmy up the pole. Jump back to the ledges, up, then back to stand on the same pole. Hop to the next one and at the platform slide down. Cross the sloping wood area, then the bit with ledges. Follow the tunnel until the floor breaks and you’re in the green area.

Dinosaur Boss

Your first boss is simple to kill. Get his rage meter up to full (it’s in the top right). He’ll charge you – stand far away when he does. As soon as the screen blurs, hit e to dodge. When you hear the bleep sound and the crosshairs turn red, fire some shots. Do this three or four times to kill him.

Climb up the ruins, where the dino has knocked himself out. Pick up the second cog from the platform between the waterfalls. Dive into the water and swim through the tunnel on the right. Climb up to this room and out through the window. Jump along the higher platforms.

Climb a post at the end and from next platform jump to the ledges. Keep going until you reach the bridge with a gap. Jump the gap and climb to the ledge to the left of the ruins. Climb to the top and jump to the watery slope. Jump to the next slope and the end of that one to grab the pole. Swing to the wooden platform, jump to the next one to enter a little cave.

Take the left exit and head through the room with wooden slopes and back to the cogs. By the waterfall, you’ll see more wall ledges. Follow them behind the waterfall and shoot the bridge when prompted.

When you jump to the pole, you’ll see a grapple point. Use this to cross the gap, then make your way around the wall ledges, through the doorway and across the bridge to find the third cog there. Jump in the water for a quick ride to where they go. Exit via the now open door by the water below.

Level 4: Tomb of Qualopec

Cross the room and try to enter the open doorway – a giant ball appears and it’ll shut. Drop down to the lower level. Drag the crate under the wall ledges and the tall platform between the central platform above and the right doorway (the floor patches will help you position it).

Use it to jump to the door. Cross the obstacle course with darts and try to pull the switch. The floor falls in. Go get the crate from the alcove and push it to the floor below. Use it to reach the wall ledges, then jump across two ceiling posts and swing across from pole to platform.

Use the next ceiling pole to jump to the switch. Continue round the ledges to reach the exit (where you came in). Move the wooden platform to exit the opposite door. At the switch, jump to the left pole. Climb it and jump on the swing pole. Jump the ledges to the bridge and onto the switch.

Return to the central room and jump on your wooden platform. You’ll see more wall ledges to the right of where you came in. Climb them and use the pole to jump up. Shoot the target above the wall opposite. Use two grapple hooks to swing to the third switch and exit the open door.

    I'm stuck after you beat the first boss and I keep climbing up but it takes me around in circles and it takes me to where I would have had to fight the dinosaur again.

    When you get to the big double doors you'll want to climb up the left side (because you can't climb up the right side) and go around to the right side via the poles in the wall over the entrance to that room and pull that weight down first, then jump down and back up the left wall and pull that one. Hint: They don't actually go back up once you pull them down. Any other questions my e-mail is
