Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Legend

How do you get the crates in Bolivia up a level to cover the spaces?

Games Guru: This is not entirely easy. Notice that there are pressure plates on the floor. You are going to need to drag two of those crates over the plates, then have Lara step on the third plate. Why only two plates? Well, you are going to need to drag one of the crates up the ramp to the left and flip it onto one of the crates on the plates.

In the Bolivia level once I pass the room with the turnstile, you meet the man looking for the pieces of the sword. Lara is then blown off the swinging bridge and the game reloads and starts back in the hallway leading back to the turnstiles. Is that the end of Bolivia or am I missing something? Where do I go next?

Games Guru: I’m not sure I understand where you are. If Lara is on a bridge being chased by a helicopter, get her across the bridge and have her fight the mercenaries on the other side. Do this, and you will move on to the next part of the adventure, Peru.

How do I defeat the monster on the tesla experiment stage or do I need to get the sword fragment first? If so, how?

Games Guru: No, you want to get the fragment last. First activate the control panels, then use the gravity gun to shoot the hanging Tesla coils into the stream of electricity. Once they are all in the stream, use the grapple to grab the sword fragment and end this task. The monster will take care of itself at that point.

On the level Japan, after you get into the room with the huge TV, what do you do next?

Games Guru: You do what your parents have been telling you to do for years: Shut off that television … once and for all. Note that as you approach the TV, you can interact with it. I don’t mean change the channels. Grapple it, then pull it as far off the shelf as you can. It won’t come all the way off because there are cables holding it in place. Shoot the cables. The TV will fall and you will find your way out of this room.

Do you have any good secret codes? Like unlock all levels? Or ANYTHING that doesn’t involve beating the game?

Games Guru: Good news and bad news on this one. The good news is there are all kinds of codes that make Legend easier. The bad news is that to get them, you need to earn them legitimately.

For instance, as anyone who has dealt with Lara can tell you, giving her the ability to kill enemies with a single shot will help. The bad news: to get that ability, you need to beat the Bolivia Time Trial in 4:15. Once you do, you can give her one-shot kills by holding down the left trigger button and typing: Y A Y X LB B. Complete England in 27:00 and you can make Lara bulletproof by holding down the left trigger and typing: A RT Y RT X LB.

On the level England, when you finally get to the really big room with the really cool house, what do you do next? I’ve tried going in the house, but the only thing in there is a big statue with a chandelier above it, and outside the only things useful are the big graspable turny thingies. How do I get out of that place?

Games Guru: The trick is to make the chandelier swing, then jump on the rope to raise the bell (you called it a “statue”). You won’t complete this level by bringing the bell and the chandelier together, but your next task will be revealed.

  9. Games Guru, you are correct about where the reader is in bolivia. On hard mode, there is no time for error, and rolling constantly across the bridge is the only way.

    Gold Rewards in Croft Manor

    First you need to have the grapple, light, and the guns. Then you go to the study and pull the first book holder, which is behind the wooden plank that you need to shoot, onto the stone panel on the floor. Then above you will see another – shoot/grapple that and it will fall down. Push that onto the other panel and a door should open. If not, go in and out of the room.

    Second, where the dark corridor is, use your light to see around. There will be a tiger’s tongue – press it and a wall should flip around, with writing about 2 twin sisters above the water. Get out of there and head to the pool area and pull out all of those statue things, then climb onto the lowest one. Swing on the pole and shimmy across the ledge, then swing on the pole onto the big platform with a diving board.

    Thirdly, turn the 2 statues opposite each other, and the wall should flip around revealing yet another clue about some Gods and the knowledge. So head back to the study and pull out the books in the right order: blue, green, green, red. A bookshelf should open with a silver reward and another clue.

    Last, you need to head to the main hallway and touch both tiger tongues and both sides of the balcony. A high block should rise up from the floor with a gold reward on it. Grapple those swing bars from the glass wall and get to the end of the middle one and drop onto the block.

    The Gold award should give you two new outfits for Lara.
