    Tomb Raider III on PC is less of a challenge. Thankfully, the player now as the option to save at any point. The game is still difficult, but dropping the Save Crystals from PSX version helps a lot. Tomb Raider III is a more daring entry in the series. The emphasis on exploration is higher this time around with a well-balanced mix of action. The heavy use of gun fights with human goonsTomb Raider III on PC is less of a challenge.

Tomb Raider III is a more daring entry in the series. The emphasis on exploration is higher this time around with a well-balanced mix of action. The heavy use of gun fights with human goons from TR2 are lighter this time around. TRIII offers the most diversity out of any Tomb Raider game. From the wider arsenal of weapons (Desert Eagle, Rocker Launcher,etc) , more outfits, new vehicles (quad bike,kayak, etc), new moves like sprinting and crawling, to a variety of larger scaled levels (India, Area 51, London, Tropical island, Antartica). Levels now have multiple paths. The difficulty for this game ranges between intermediate to hard. Environments are more deadly. Traps and Death linger in every corner. Give this game a chance if you are up for a challenge. It's not going to satisfy everyone. TRIII's difficulty has resulted in poor reviews and mixed opinions. Don't let them fool you. Tomb Raider III is a good game that offers more of a challenge and more varitey than others titles in the series. Expand

    All I can really say is once you finally complete the game it’s a sigh of relief! Tomb Raider 3 has some atrociously hard levels and I don’t believe anyone could complete this game entirely without checking some sort of walk-through for certain parts!

Tomb Raider 3 has some atrociously hard levels and I don’t believe anyone could complete this game entirely without checking some sort of walk-through for certain parts! I had previously never completed this game when I originally had it for the PS1 as it is so long and so difficult; limiting saves to save crystals was not a wise move for this title at all, fortunately the PC version is save anywhere and I ended up saving the game 450 times, yes that’s really bad. However although it was long, overly difficult and often down right annoying; if you love your Tomb Raider games, you’re going to enjoy it! Expand

    This is Tomb Raider at its very best. Great game play, hard puzzles and so much exploration going on. This game really sucked me in, and I consider it as one of the best game experiences I ever had

    This game is probably the second worst in the franchise. In this game i never have got past the first level. Why? because the level is ugly, Confusing, And really, really boring. The game might pick up after the first level but the first level did not leave a good impression. Play Tomb raider 1&2 first as they leave a better impression

    From what I remember, the first two 'worlds' were great but I didn't like the futuristic Area 51 at all. Also it still suffers from the old clunky control problem. An enjoyable adventure nonetheless!

    Too cryptic and too long, but still great. Challenging tombs, various enemies and fast combat. Tomb Raider 3 is great, but is weaker, than the second.
