Lara Croft returns in Tomb Raider II to discover the secret of the Dagger of Xian. The ancient Chinese believed that whoever recovered this mythical dagger would gain power beyond belief... provided they had the courage to plunge the dagger deep into their heart.
Lara's travels start at The Great Wall of China but it's not long before she's globe-trotting in hot pursuit of clues that will lead her to the ultimate goal. However she's not alone in her new adventure : this time there are other who have a seemingly fanatical interest in the dagger.
Featuring an enhanced Lara Croft, complete with costume changes, Tomb Raider II combines the classic gameplay of the original with an array of enhanced exterior settings, new moves, new weapons and a plot that'll have Lara twisting and turning around every corner.
Legend has it that when you drive the Dagger of Xian into your heart, you acquire the power of the dragon. Literally.
In Ancient China, the Emperor was the holder of this power and with his army alongside him, he was a force to be reckoned with. Thus he staked claim to the vast lands that are China.
His final battle however ended in defeat. While people fell into submission all around him, the Warrior Monks of Tibet would not relent and courageously fought against his evil. Knowing the power of the dagger, they succeeded in removing it from the Dragon Emperor's heart - reducing him and his army to carnage. The dagger was returned to its resting place within The Great Wall and locked up for all time...
Now three parties hold the dagger close to their heart. And all for entirely different reasons.
Lara, forever the adventurer, is one of these. In her travels, she will encounter the other two...
