"We have very few TR5 levels in our inventory, and this one is a worthy and welcome addition to that category. It's based on the Ireland levels where the protagonist is Young Lara, and the environs are faithful to the original. The only enemies can be easily evaded or endured, as the case may be, as no weapons are available, and the lack of flares proved not in the least to be disadvantageous. I played this one and wrote a walkthrough while waiting for Hurricane Florence to pass by our area, and I was grateful for the distraction. The five secrets are cleverly placed and some require a bit of backtracking if you wish to collect them all. I generally find story lines in a custom level to be a waste of time, but the FMVs here were well spaced and provided a sense of continuity. A hour's entertainment is provided here, and I thoroughly enjoyed the raid from start to finish. Recommended." - Phil (17-Sep-2018)

"I'm not generally a fan of Young Lara levels, but, perversely, the original Black Isle levels from Chronicles are among my all time favourites. The recreation here of the wonderful atmosphere and the haunting sound files is really well done and the gameplay is inventive and interesting, especially the way Lara gets to deal with the knights at the end of the game. If you too are a fan of the original levels, you honestly shouldn't miss this. I loved it and I think you will too." - Jay (17-Sep-2018)

"Awesome Ireland level which I Tested,. The secrets are so well hidden Luis had to tell me where all of them are. There are no enemies but the puzzles are super cool,. Excellent job Luis." - JoeTheCrazyGamer (11-Sep-2018)

"I must admit that this young Lara game was definitely different from any other identical games I had seen beforehand this website. At first, I thought this is going to be another boring young Lara adventure, which consists of tiresome gameplay, boxy environment and flat lighting, but as soon as the game started right away, it totally changed my mind and I decided to complete the outstanding adventure to the end! This game reminded me of Tomb Raider Chronicles' young Lara environment. It is worth noting that there was nothing about this game to complain, although I expected to see more Next Generation content out of this debut, such as NG textures , but not a big deal at alp. Well done! Top recommended level!!! Thank you." - Mehrbod (11-Sep-2018)
