You are right, of course. Not all the keys have a function when playing Tombraider. You only use about a third of the keys on the keyboard and the mouse. Quite easy, once you get used to it, actually. I still find the X- box easier, even though, I prefer the PC. :thumbsup
When you are playing on your PS2, do you have it connected to a plasma screen ? I only have an old 68 cm CRT TV and I am curious what the graphics would be on a biiiiiig screen. :chin
BTW, when trying something new, don't give up too quickly. [hehe]

Lol I just get impatient.

No, it's connected to one of those tiny little TV's with the glass screen you'd give to kids for their rooms [that's how I got it about 8 years ago, anyway]. I've never actually seen anyone play on any games console connected to a plasma.

Maybe you should ask for an upgrade. LOL [hehe] I do have a plasma but haven't had the time yet to set up my X-Box. Maybe tonight. I'll let you know how it went, if you are interested. :thumbs:

I am! If the picture's good on games I will actually consider asking for a new TV. Do let me know how it goes for you :D

It went surprisingly well. Almost movie like. :thumbs: All I need now is a surround system and then it will be just awesome. I can only recommend it. :thumbsup It feels like you are right in the game :kiss Just one thing though, be careful with the low-end sort of plasmas the better option would be the LCD if you wanna go cheaper. Bear it in mind when shopping for a TV. :-)
Good Luck :wave:

Argos! It's basically a store chain that sells... well, pretty much everything. Toys, electricals, jewellery... you name it, they have it.

One of those places where you go in, look through the catalogue, note down a number for what you want, pay for it, and get it at a desk after they've found it in a massive storage space out back.

Sounds scary. :O So, like K-mart over here.
Well, did you get your TV ? I hope you asked all the right questions, there's nothing worse than buying the wrong product and having to take it back for an exchange. A lot of time-wasting when you could be playing your fave game on your fave platform ( PS2 in your case ) on your biiiiiiig TV screen. :happyjump I really hope you enjoy it. :-)

My mum refused to buy me one >_<

Plus I am still in the process of finding a job so I can't afford one. Sucks.

Argos isn't scary, it's convenient! :thumbsup

I wish you luck then. :thumbsup There is nothing better then to earn your own money. Sort of becoming independent. :happyjump Just spend your hard earned wisely, like on a PS3 or the like. :D

The PS2 version has been released here and I was quite surprised at the price. It is only $ 49.95 . The PG version set me back a $ 59.95 and the X-Box 360 a staggering $ 99.95. :think: Strange world, indeed.
Have you got yours yet?
