The sequel to Tomb Raider, Tomb Raider II made the leap to Win9x. One of the first 3D shooters to feature a female hero, Tomb Raider is popular for more than just the beautiful Lara Croft. Far from being a mindless First Person Shooter, Tomb Raider requires exploration and technique. Tomb Raider has auto-aiming, sophisticated lighting, and features exceptional level design. Lara Croft can leap across a gap and grab onto a ledge, or "safety drop" to get to the bottom of a drop that would otherwise kill her. The graphics are a bit better than in the original Tomb Raider, Lara can now drive vehicles, and there are new weapons, including a harpoon gun, an M-16 assault rifle, and a grenade launcher. There was a pre-release demo version that included the first level (Great Wall), and a post-release demo that included the second level (Venice), making it possible to play two levels before buying. There are 17 levels in this game, with only one level playable in each of the shareware versions.
