To replay a level you go to Save/load and pick "Replay Level"

To do the time trial (you have to finish the different levels in certain time) you choose difficulty and pick time trial.

I find them stressful too! I can't cope with doing everything you need to to complete the level and worry about the time it takes at the same time! :-?

LOL! Me too! :roll: I like to take my time in video games.....I tend to think about stuff...specially in Tomb Raider and if I get rushed I can get into a bad mood :P but I guess once I get to know a level better I can do a time trial.

Always looking for the "perfect score".

timetrials

ah the timetrials are "pie" then agian i've played practicly every TR and i always loved messing around the manor how there where touchplates that activated timed doors and if u didnt get to the door bam its shut agian, or the obstacle course i pwn this game i love it

ps just finished all the time trials ;) also

but im still missing a great amount of content barely have any "gold rewards or whatever? medals? im only at 88% complete i guess i need to find more treasure or change dificulty level? i dunno but its a real fun game just wish there where more maps :( obviously alot of planning and effort goes into making these maps... well good parts of em... heh i love the mishap videos... if there was only a way to make the "hint button" smaller or something

Time trials and strategies

Post your best strategies for time trials!

At first i tried doing the japan TT, and thought "oh god, i cant do this"

I find that if you do the Bolivia Redux time trial, which is pretty easy, (If you play on easy) You get the one shot kill cheat, which is awesome for most levels.

any other suggestions?

and any tips for getting through the kazakhstan and england timetrials? the only ones i have to do? :O

General:
- ignore enemies
- use the quick moves (press interaction repeatedly while shimmying, swimming, diving...)

Japan:
- walk to bartender straight away, press Interaction, then don't wait but walk right to the office.


Kazakstan:
- use shortcut (stack crates left of the canon and jump towards the dangling grate, jump to the other side and no switching on the machine necessary)

just to name a few.

Yes, it works, in my first round I thought this was the actual way to do it (but I did it after activating the machine) so when I replayed it I realised i didn't really need the machine to do that shortcut.

haha good plan.

i thought the controls for this one were a lot more streamlined and useful than in any other TR.

i need to run through the england levels before i get anywhere near to doing a time trial.

i'll get all the secrets for kazakhstan and england first :sun:
