Alternate Versions

In 1999, two years after Tomb Raider 2 came out, Eidos re-released the game as "Tomb Raider 2 Gold". The new version included the original plus fives bonus levels on a second CD. The new levels comprise a separate mini-adventure entitled "The Golden Mask," in which Lara heads to Alaska in search of the Mask of Tornarsuk. According to legend, this relic bestows powers of re-animation on its wearer. This time Lara goes up against a band of mercenaries also bent on possessing the mask. The four main levels take Lara from an abandoned Russian mining base to the remains of ancient Inuit settlement, then into a tropical Shangri-La hidden beneath the complex. See more »

User Reviews

One of Sony´s best
25 April 2001 | by Hikage-samaSee all my reviews

Tomb Raider 2 is one of Sony´s best games ever. Very good sequel to nr 1. Lara´s movement looks good. But this is more difficult than nr 1.

I think Tomb Raider 1 & 2 is the best in the series, nr 5 is the worst. It has absolutely nothing to give that we already have not seen. I hope that they do something new with Lara & Tomb Raider for Play Station 2. I can´t wait to see the movie with sugar babe Angelina Jolie. She is perfect for the role and i hope that they use elements from the game. So we can feel that we watch a Tomb Raider movie. Tomb Raider 1 & 2 along side with Resident Evil series & final Fantasy series are the best of Sony and game history.
