Reviewer's comments
"It's an enjoyable adventure that offers quite a nice shooter experience, otherwise with the okay graphics and a bit bad lighting that could be improved it's recommended." - OblivionJaw (26-Dec-2023)
"A very pleasant shortie with good lighting, satisfying combat, rewarding secrets and surprisingly good immersion as for how simply it's made. Recommended." - DJ Full (01-Sep-2022)
"A decently enjoyable and short Italy styled level. It is mostly going from one bland textured room to another, pulling switches and killing enemies along the way, but it flows nicely and I appreciated the cameras showing doors opening as well. There's one entertaining block management puzzle as well followed by the gunslinger bossfight. A few visual bugs and glitches are present too. Don't expect much aside from feeling mildly entertained until the end as this is very much a slightly below average level at it's core." - LuxQSD (12-May-2022)
"A TR2 style italian indoor level which is very short and simple, find a few switches in rooms and in water, move some blocks around and kill some baddies. its all quite basic stuff really although finding the coloured dragons was a nice detour but with nothing else to offer and with it being so short it ended up being disappointing because of a lack of fun tasks or interesting places to explore" - John (26-Aug-2021)
"A unique twist on the usual Italy/Opera level, particularly the unusual colors for the dragon secrets. The enemies are quite tough, but fortunately there's enough of meds and bullets to slay them (although it's a wonder why some weapons don't appear, while their ammos do)." - Charles Kane (26-May-2021)
"Here we have an absolute classic from the early days of unofficial editing and this is 20 minutes well spent. The door behind the movable block puzzle is timed and that held me up a while. We have the usual paper thin walls which seem to be prevalent in many of these early Tomb Raider 2 levels but game play is nice and brisk and the raiding traditional. Well worth the download." - Torry (08-Oct-2019)
"A nice small venice level with alot of combat and fun block puzzle involving a secret too Well done. Also a little tip if you are going to give the player Ammo please give us the gun too, Nice Job." - JoeTheCrazyGamer (26-Jun-2019)
"Hey, it's a fun little Venice level. Found all 3 secrets first time through. Pretty combat heavy, and there is a crate puzzle that you have to solve in the dark. Ugh! You'll have plenty of flares by this point though so it isn't too bad. The texturing and atmosphere is surprisingly decent, with a few paper thin walls that really aren't terrible. Found a bunch of ammo but no gun to load, though I snagged a handy grenade gun. It came in handy when fighting the double-cannon toting shirtless goon. He terrified me back in '97, now I love it when he pops up so I get a bit of a challenge. Pretty short, but worth a raid if you're feeling bored and want to blow some stuff up! I was hoping there'd be more to it, but it ended very abruptly! Use the TR2 CD to hear the music clips. It's better with them!" - Chel (22-Oct-2018)
"This actually not that bad of attempt for a first level, and considering it was the first ever published it is very consistent. The atmosphere is quite nice, and the gameplay, while very linear and simplistic is very effective. The graphics also had a consistent quality, some would expect a "stretched mess" on the texturing department, but, no it is quality very decent for a first attempt. I also liked the different coloration for the dragon secrets it was a nice touch. Overall while a bit rough around the edges, this level actually manages to keep a consistent quality through out its short length. Recommended for people that want a simple linear level." - SeniorBlitz (31-Jul-2018)
"The first level published this is wonderful. Very funny, I got scared by the killer at the end of the level and I liked the gameplay.Congrats!!" - Dark Sheep (30-Jul-2018)
"Gameplay and puzzles element were not that bad , as I enjoyed the numerous switches I had to find throughout the adventure . Enemies were good enough , and the prize they left you after their death were perfect ; In addition , the secrets were perfectly placed , as it wasn't a piece of cake to find all . Atmosphere was a little bit bad because of repetitive textures and in some parts of the game , the frames started to go looping , making the screen a bit frustrating . The lighting was not that bad , but it could be better . In genera , it was a good game to experience . Thanks ." - Mehrbod (01-Jun-2018)
"Well, the first builders 17 years ago were going better. This small venice level is not bad; the architecture is still very simple, there are some paper walls and I got disoriented in the totally black room (bad, bad...) with the movable crates 'cause the timed brick door, but the level is still enjoyable in spite of the numerous enemies and the ammo for the extra guns I couldn't find (I only found the grenade gun). Decent texturization and a couple of cd tracks as a good details. Enjoyable but not very funny." - Jose (03-Nov-2017)
"A simplistic, linear level that took me just under ten minutes to complete. I liked the different colours of the secret dragons in particular (although they were way too easy to find), and the violins playing while fighting the shotgun man was a nice touch. However I thought the block puzzle was very annoying, especially since you have to stop every thirty seconds to get out a new flare. This was too easy, and there is no story here - just kill everything and get to the exit trigger. Overall it's a little bit of fun but I wouldn't recommend it." - Ejecta (14-Aug-2017)
"A very straightforward romp almost entirely based on the tried and tested button-door-button formula. There's a room filled with pushable blocks but not exactly a puzzle as it only hides the points of interest, amongst which is a secret. Speaking of secrets: how cool are these new recolors? I particularly love the onyx dragon. For the final fight against Colt, you're treated to the classic Venice Violins track. 10 minutes, 3 secrets. 04/17" - Treeble (29-Apr-2017)
"A short level with lots of baddies, dogs and rats to kill. You pick up ammo for non existent guns (only the grenade launcher and shotgun). It has 3 dragon secrets, and they were very easy to find, except the last one. Pulling switches and pushing buttons to reach a room where you can blow up a giant baddy and end the level." - alan (21-Apr-2017)
"This is just a short visit to an Opera House style environment with less inspired design and a couple of paper thin walls. Not much gameplay apart from a few switches and block puzzle in a dark room. The enemies did provide a slight challenge, even accosting Lara as she left the water. Then the level abruptly ends a bit later. Oh well." - Ryan (08-Jul-2016)
"Like the levelname says, this is a short level, where you get back to the opera house in italy and discover some rooms, with puzzles and enemies." - Nuri (01-Jul-2015)
"Starting up this level, I did not expect it to give me random technical errors from time to time and after having rather unfinished glitchy textures for the statistics appear at the end, the overall experience left a rather bittersweet taste in my mouth, leaving me to feel like I'd accomplished nothing but complete another bad release to check off the review list. Thankfully, the level in question doesn't last too long as we find Lara revisiting Italy and slaughter some more of Bartolli's workforce alongside a few dogs and some rather disgusting rats for literally no reason(when we're not busy pulling switches or pushing buttons to access a new room needed for progression, that is.) Beyond that, the texturing is passable, the atmosphere is rather flat and the level design is relatively uninspired by today's standards. While it was probably one of the better custom levels back when it originally released, time hasn't been too kind with this one. Only really worth bothering with, if you're bored and have literally nothing else to do." - Ceamonks890 (23-Jul-2014)
"A short, faintly nostalgic trip to Venice, or at least the Opera House type surroundings, to push some buttons and have a fairly bloodthirsty time with henchmen, dogs and rats seemingly round every corner. There are also the traditional TR2 three dragon secrets and a block push puzzle thrown in for good measure." - Jay (21-Nov-2013)
"I was truly shocked that this level had three secrets, not that they were hard to find. Texturing was similar to the "Opera House" level, and worked well enough. There are plenty of enemies for the ephemerality of this adventure, so boredom never has a chance to sink in its teeth. My only real gripe is that the final boss and his henchman got stuck on a wall for me, and thus was really anti-climatic to fight. Not bad for an early custom level." - Xela (16-Jul-2013)
"Buttons, buttons and more bad guys. Short level with small nostalgic reminder to me of Opera House from TR2. Otherwise it was rather okay. Nothing special but not that bad." - Casual Raider (10-Jul-2013)
"It was a shooter level. Pretty short, nearly not to believe three secrets can be found. Texture were mediocre - I can't say they were badly placed. But a fun factor doesn't come up." - manarch2 (20-Oct-2010)
"Italy? Oh well. Lots of nasty guys and rats. Pushing some buttons, opening doors and finding three secrets as well. There is one block puzzle and that is it." - Gerty (22-Jul-2010)
"A very quick 10 minute raid in a very compact level. You get to meet a bunch of Venice enemies and can search out three dragon secrets - the last one giving you also the grenade launcher which is fun to use with the final boss." - MichaelP (29-May-2010)
"There are many enemies. Different ammos, but I've found only the shotgun, and I found 3 secrets. It have Opera House feeling." - Obig (10-May-2010)
"Very small, but packs a lot of play into it, with Lara throwing switches, moving boxes, and finding all three dragon secrets. Now if only Lara had the weapons to go with all that ammo she picks up... Routine texturing, but has a number of Venice gunmen, plus the boss with double shotguns, in a compact area." - dmdibl (27-Apr-2010)
"I was enjoying this unpretentious Level for a good 10 minutes (killing dogs,mafioso,thugs and a huge Shotgun-wielding dude)while locating buttons and switches to activate and solving a modest push-block puzzle---when it abruptly ended in the middle of a shoot-out.It's almost as if it was built as a Finale to an adventure that I never got to see. Ah well;such is life." - Orbit Dream (21-Jan-2010)
