Tomb Raider Underworld Strategy Guide 1: Introduction and Prologue
Welcome to the Tomb Raider: Underworld Guide!
I’m not certain if you have read some of my other guides, but generally, I use the format of telling you what to do and how to solve puzzles that the player will face when playing the game.
I’m going to start with this disclaimer. Although this guide is compatible with Tomb Raider Underworld for all consoles and PC platforms, this is more of a guide for Tomb Raider Underworld for the Wii. So if you are reading this guide, and found that I “left something out”, it probably means that what you are looking for isn’t on whatever version of Tomb Raider Underworld that you have.
If you follow this guide from beginning to end, I guarantee that you will complete Tomb Raider Underworld from beginning to end. I also give the locations of all the Treasures, and I put them in Boldface so that you can skim through and find them, in case that is your primary reason for reading this.
Like most video games, Tomb Raider: Underworld can’t resist the urge to start with a lame tutorial. This first part is where you learn to use the camera. After two times around the bend with flames in a corner, you will learn to jump up to a ledge. Wheee. Then you’ll need to go up a flight of stairs to pull a lever. Ah, the fun never ends.
Then you must go through a door, where you must learn to crouch. You could turn right and get a little burned, but why?
After crouching, go ahead and jump up onto a nearby ledge and down to another area. You will need to shoot out a door, which will conveniently crumble down for you. Better run through to get to it.
From there, it is about jumping to a ledge, jumping up to a ledge, shimmying, and other things that I will get tired of telling you to do as this guide progresses. Make sure to drop off there, and be careful as you run to the box.
Push the box all the way to the wall, and jump on the nearby ledge. Shimmy over and drop to the floor.
Walk over to the door and use the grapple. The door will become a bridge, and you can walk over it to get to the other side.
You will then need to walk to the end of the burning area, and jump off to quickly use the grapple. That’s about as tricky as it gets. From there, it is about just hanging from the nearest ledge and dropping to the floor.
