The Great Pyramid Return to Egypt Temple of the Cat

Return to Egypt is the first level of Unfinished Business, the Tomb Raider Director's Cut. As the title hints the location of this level is Egypt. Enemies in this level are crocodiles and panthers.

The level starts with the familiar hall with sphinx and obelisk, which appears in City of Khamoon and Obelisk of Khamoon. Lara enters through the ceiling after passing through a small, previously undiscovered chamber. The hall, as well as several other parts of the level, has been flooded. New passages are open and old familiar ones are sealed shut.

After the few familiar areas, Lara discovers new rooms and tunnels. A recurring motif throughout the level is the contrast of good and bad cats. "Good" cat statues may give Lara clues when she approaches them in a specific manner, visions of other parts of the level. "Bad" cats would come to life as Black Panthers and attack Lara.

A highlight in this level is a room with three ramps, each of which has several boulders ready to roll down.

Towards the end of the level, Lara finds herself outside in the desert. It is possible to go beyond the fence, venture out in the open and discover a hidden lake (not counted as a secret), which has the Uzis in it. It is not possible to go too far because many areas on the sand are deadly to walk on. Another threat are panthers and mummies, which sometimes roam around the open desert.
