"Here we have hidden jumpswitches to find, blades to dodge, and mice to shoot. Let's be clear, this is not a typical level of Lara's home. It is a 2-part level with Lara's mansion sitting on top of some ruins and a sewer system to explore for four puzzle stars. I appreciated the hint markers which point you in the right direction, particularly because I usually dislike searching for jumpswitches. I was not a fan of the blades in the garden maze, their direction of rotation made backtracking quite difficult. The doors are inconsistent, some open when Lara steps in front of them and others do not. Not as bad as when the action key is involved, but can still lead to overlooked areas. The kayak ride and quad were nice additions, however I'm not sure what the goal posts in the water were for, and the quad cannot go in reverse so make sure not to drive it into a corner. For the more meticulous raider, the secrets will be quite engaging: there are some nice puzzles to solve to get those, which I won't spoil here. The inconsistent texture sizing and somewhat flat lighting could use more attention, but they don't hurt the immersion too much. Overall a nice little adventure that sits comfortably between a house level and a more traditional raid. 1 hour 42 minutes." - JesseG (03-Jul-2020)

"A great Home Level from Melvin, It was fun exploring Laras home, however I was not a huge fan of the ingame hint system it is very easy to trigger accidentally and you have to reload if you dont want them. When i first saw Winston my first though was to lock him in the freezer alas this is not possible. The kayak and Quadbike were fun to control and it was great finding all the candy bars for the secrets. 35/40" - JoeTheCrazyGamer (26-Jun-2020)
