Another TR2 tidbit...
In the part of the TIBETAN FOOTHILLS section of TR2 where you encounter
the first armed snowmobile ( and get the cabin key ) and Lara has to
avoid being shot or run over by the snowmobile's rider, you can
dramatically reduce her chances of being run over - while she retakes
the high ground - by the simple expedient of parking her own snowmobile
SIDEWAYS on the 'drawbridge' ramp...about two squares up from the bottom.
Remember: she herself will have to do a running jump over the parked
snowmobile, if you try to take her up the ramp at any point.
This, apparently ( at least it did so for me ), blocks the armed
snowmobile's access to the ramp area, and gains lovely Lara Raidermaid
plenty of time to position herself correctly for the jump back up into
the safety of the higher area - where she can then take her time in
turning the M16 on her pursuer ( what Bozo decided that the M16 couldn't
be fired while running? Grrrrr! )...or even her infinite repeaters, if
she is low on expendable ammo and heavily laden with medi-packs.
Anyway...just a little tip.
