that probably means you're trying to stay completelyout of reach of the monsters body attacks; don't try to completely hide from it; instead jump around fairly close; the monster is pretty slow with it's attacks so as long as you keep jumping and dodging around it won't hit you

RE: 6th Level: England (Monster)

I had the same problem but after a few tries you get the hang of it. I went for which ever pillar the monster wasn't near, aimed and fired at the pillar. As soon as you do the monster appears and stares at the pillar.

Whilst firing I positioned myself so that I could see the lever light up. As soon as the monster looks at the pillar, fire the grapple at the lever and pull it. The cage comes down and knocks the monster on the head.

This was where I first kept getting stuck because after the first cage hit him, the monster wouldn't stop attacking Lara! I discovered that if I sumersaulted across to the furthest away pillar, the monster would miss Lara and by the time he reached her I had started firing at that pillar so he became mesmorised by the pillar and didn't attack Lara.

I did this for each pillar and found it much easier as long as I didn't move from the pillar I was on to the one next to it. I always moved to the furthest away pillar that I hadn't already used.

I hope this is of some help as I know how frustrating it is when you can't get past a certain part and this bit was difficult and annoying but so satisfying when it's done!

I think there is not. But keep practicing, it can be done with only the one medipack.

It is important, that you run straight towards one of this bell towers and start shooting. don't stop, till the creature turnes its head, then quickly stop, through out the grapple, pull it down. run to the next (dodging attacks by rolling and jumping), repeat. Once you've gotten the timing right it's not that difficult.

I played it on PS2 with one health pack too. It took me several tries but once you have the hang of exactly what to do and the timings of it then its not too bad

Well, finally did it. Finished it with no health packs, medium difficulty. I used the manual aim button (Z by default) after shooting the bell and getting in the right position, to use the grapple (so, first Z then Q).

In Bolovia fighting amanda now..

:mad: Mad is putting it lightly, I am too much of a gentleman to use the filthy language of a previous posting of a foul mouthed yob, but I feel like it.

I have been trying for 5 days now to defeat the water monster in England level, have read & reread all the posts on this forum plus the Eidos forum but still cannot even get one cage to hit it'
Shoot the gun at statue & you can see the sound waves enamating from it, but by the time I have managed to get Lara to holster her guns it wallops me.
If I do manage to grapple the lever the darned (being polite) cage misses it & I am being driven to distraction.
If I cannot defeat it bang goes the rest of the game & it will have to go into the recycle bin.
I have given many hints & tips on the forums about the Boss fights & other things but this one has got me beat.
Now it's my turn to shout "HELP"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. :flare: :x :mad: :flare:

Then stop a moment earlier. (do you use the setting where you actually have to put her guns away- I think I remember there was one - or does she do it automatically. I usually don't buter looking if she's put them away and just throw the grapple. Once you get the timing right its easy.

If you really really need help I could play this part for you. Zip or rar your savegame (just the one before the seemonster) and attach it here.

But if you want it done soon, hurry, because I'll be going to bed soon and have a long day tomorrow. ;-)

You are so kind, but for the first time ever & I have had every one of the TR series I gave in & downloaded a saved game.
Have now completed this level & hang my head in shame for being so cowardly.
Your kind offer was appreciated though.

keep in mind that this monster is a really stupid KI.
Don't panic, keep running and it will get a lot easier.

Yep! 8) And jump around like crazy too! I did that! Keep moving! Only stop when you use your grapple thingy! Otherwise...stay light on your feet!

Finally done it phew!

Hi guy's, just after completing it after hours n hours of trying, it actually did seem easier for some reason this time, maybe i was getting to wound it and hence no completion but i'm glad i've finally got over it as i was comtemplating starting over on easy but now there's no need.
