In Level 2 there is this big room where platforms come out of the floor and you have to jump your way to the goodies. Having played all Tomb Raiders (except for the last one) I have to say Kyle Katarn is not Lara. He uses almost the entire platform to stop his feet from gliding. It feels very clumsy. If jumping, climbing and other Lara-esque movement is going to be a major part of JK II then why isn't it more fun? In the Tomb Raider series this aspect of the game used to be my absolute favorite.

this is no jum n run shooter. jumping is very easy, just a bit slidy in SP. try 1. jump after starting to walk and 2. move forward after jumping to get more differences

LMAO! nice rasin- good explenation! firstplayer: Really if you just practice it will get alot easer. Even more so when you get force jump. here's a hint you probably know: if you get so pied at jumping over and over again, bind no clip to k or something and use no clip to get up those frustrating jumps you know you would make if you tryed it 30 times.

;) TK 409er

p.s. I don't consider it cheating if you know you would make the jump eventually

I suppose it's Lara's shoes. When she jumbs it's "rock" steady. I just jumped my way over the tubes over that green substance river in the beginning of that mining world but I got surprised by them darn troopers. I mean, I can handle the jumping but I found it to be a little awkward and I read somewhere that there's going to be a lot of jumping in JK II. Normally I love jumping but not if it's done by Kyle Katarn. But I guess he makes up for that with his gun (winkie).
