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.

We go outside to the waterfalls and etc but it seems like there is no where else to go. We keep going in circles going back through all the checkpoints to see if we missed anything.

    I’m stuck in West Africa (Ghana)…..I’m on top of the water fall near the metal bridge and I’ve killed all the men. The problem is the wooden bridge I need to cross is missing before I even get to cross it. All thats there are 3 swinging ropes and there’s no way to the other side to get into the next room. Every time I try to jump to the ropes I fall down

    the water fall. What am I doing wrong and why is the bride missing before I even get to

    cross it???

  34. To get past the bell part wat u need to do is get the coffin of bedwyr and put it up against the broken pillar then u swing the chandaleir really hard then u jump onto the pilliar and jump onto the marble hangy thing and stay on and he glass should break then get off and walk thru the door were u have to defeat a seamonsster still tryin to figure that one out if anyone can help

  35. IN peru to use triangle on PS2 to pull out the buttons on those 4 statues then it clears the water and you go through the hole in the door.

  36. I mastered the game inside and out so imma be helping in the comment area. Most of you have troubles with the sea monsters. You shoot the red target on each of the 4 statues and it makes a noise which makes the monster look then grapple the wheel and hit the triangle button to pull the cage on his head. Do that 4 times.

  41. how do i get up on the last statue to get all three boulders when looking for amanda

  42. 1hotpotato // March 28, 2008 at 9:22 pm // Reply

    Ok… in Bolivia, with the cages/crates, you need to put them on the basically teeter toter. Put it on the edge that is down, climb up to the right, up on the short set of stairs, turn and jump on the teeter toter. this will launch the crate/cage to the level where you need it. If at first you don’t succeed, try again.

    As far as the water monster, I had to have my son help me on this one. Shoot the whatever thingies (with stone doors… there are four of them… do this step individually)till the monster turns and looks at them, use your grapple hook and pull the lever that causes the cage from above to come crashing down on him. repeat for all four.
