Croft Manor (TRA)
|Tomb Raider Anniversary|
New points of interest
The mansion looks very much like the home in Tomb Raider Legend, only this time players can access more places, including an outside area with a maze.
- Throughout the mansion Lara finds open books. She can read a few pages that refer to either some past adventures or history.
- Lara can now visit a Music Room that contains some instruments such as a piano and harp. When you interact with them, Lara will play a few notes. A stereo is also in the room. You can listen to whatever tracks you have unlocked by playing the game such as Main Menu theme and Croft Manor theme.
- The maze located outside has the grapple in the center and also an artefact.
- The Gym is a great opportunity to practice some of Lara's skills. There are a few relics scattered throughout the area.
