30-Day Angel of Darkness Challenge Day 5: Favorite Level?

Which is your favorite level and why? If it's been a while since you played the game, this awesome gifset, Tomb Raider: Angel Of Darkness | All Levels, should help refresh your memory. All credit goes to F- Yeah TRAOD! for creating the images and this wonderful challenge.

  1. For me, it changes depending on my mood. The Louvre Galleries is so much fun to play, and I love the Parisian street levels, but for me the most memorable is the Bio-Research facility. It's like science meets Alice in Wonderland...love it!

  2. My absolute favourite level in Tomb Raider AoD is Le Serpant Rouge. Why? The awesome music of course! The dance club was so non-Tomb Raider, and that's what made this game so unique.

    The most memorable level is Renne's Pawnshop. The bomb counting down scared me so much that I couldn't even look at the game on the shelf without remembering it.

    But I'll never forget Mr. Hungry Fishy in the aquatic labs...

  4. There are two that I especially like: the Louvre Galleries, simply because the whole spy game is just fantastic. And the background music makes everything fast paced. It is a bit departure from the classic exploration and adventure, but nonetheless fun! The other one I like is the Aquatic Research Area, because it reminds me of Area 51, and it really feels like a TR3 level, with some great puzzles and platforming!

  5. I liked the whole game, but my favorite level was Von Croy's Apartment, because returning to the apartment made her had another vision of what happened when she was there with Von Croy before Eckhardt showed up and made her think once again if she was the one who did it or not, because at that time her flashback was still a bit unclear. It was a clever trap that Bouchard had set for Lara, but the cleaner was no match for her.

  6. My favorite level is Gallerias Under Siege, I just loved the idea of returning to the Louvre with what we came for and then blasting our way out. Lara got what she came for and now she's escaped. I was really hoping we would get the chance to sprint and shoot guards down and that's exactly what we got :)

  7. One of my favourite things about Tomb Raider is the way it can seamlessly switch genres and I always love the levels that don’t quite fit the title; the levels that don’t take place in tombs and veer away from action adventure. The Parisian levels had a tranquillity to them that you rarely see in Tomb Raider yet never felt out of place and the “patients” in the Sanatorium were so creepy and the atmosphere and emphasis on stealth rather than firepower meant it felt more like survival horror than most actual survival horror games do.

  8. ...'Tomb of the Ancients' would have to be my favorite.I had to climb down the cavern very carefully because I knew what was waiting for me down below.Just to hear the hollow wind was frightening enough.My second choice would be 'The Hall of Seasons',this one stumped me for hours...

  9. The Bio and Aquatic research facilities, by far. The more urban environments to me serve as scene-setters while the tomb levels were the worst affected by bugs and awkward controls.

    The research facilities on the other hand, felt like high-tech tombs, as creative (sadistic?) in their design as a forgotten ruin. They're buried inside a fortress as much as a "real" tomb, and just as atmospheric.
