Unfinished Business Save Files

My PC savegames include various save points for all levels, including all secrets and following most difficult sequences. For a complete list of the 54 saves in this collection, see here. Jeff's files (also for PC and listed below mine) and the Macintosh files also include various save points from each level.

A Note About the PC Saves: According to Philip Campbell, the level designer for Unfinished Business, Lara was intended to start the Atlantis levels with only the pistols. Campbell told Theresa from tombraiders.com, "That sets them at the correct difficulty level (i.e., expert)." This group of saves follows his suggestion. Lara begins level 3 with only the pistols. If you want to start with items collected in the previous two levels, download the level 2 saves and start at the end of that level, or download Jeff Reid's saves, which have mucho everything.
